That player chooses which of their lands to destroy. Neither of you can choose to destroy a land with indestructible. (2013-07-01)
  • Burning of Xinye targets only an opponent. If that player is an illegal target by the time Burning of Xinye resolves, the entire spell doesn’t resolve. (2009-10-01)
