No.  Only lands with the Island type are destroyed by Boiling Seas, for example Hallowed Fountain
No. It's only an Island if Island appears in the type line (or if some ability makes it one)

Awesome thanks for the quick response!
Nope. Simply tapping for blue mana doesn't make it an Island. It must have Island on its type like (like Island or Watery Grave) to count as an Island and be destroyed by the Boiling Seas.

Questions don't have to make sense, but answers do.

No. Remote Isle has no land type at all, so it is not affected by anything that cares about land types. Only lands that have the Island subtype on the type line (like Island, Watery Grave, etc.) or that have been granted the Island subtype (like with Realmwright) are Islands.

I started up my next community draft in the limited forums. This time around the format is Zendikar/Worldwake/Rise of the Eldrazi. So if you like to draft, come by and share your thoughts.

My community draft experiment with DTK/DTK/FRF is concluded now. If you want to, you can check it out and maybe build some decks from the pools. I've already build my own take on that.


Once again aced the Rules Advisor test (Feb 2015). (I still make mistakes now and then, but who doesn't.)


"Simple questions" usually need rather complex answers, while complex questions often come down to no more than a simple "yes" or "no".


I ended up casting Stone Rain on the bastard after boiling seas, left him with no blue mana producers so it worked!
Take that counterspell!
