Distant Lands is an Action-Reserve-Victory card from Adventures.

As it removes itself from your deck in a fashion similar to Island, Distant Lands can be part of a strategy that buys and plays them constantly during the game, building up long before you would usually start greening.

So if your engine is more powerful, Distant Lands gets stronger exponentially; you get rewarded for overbuilding and overdrawing your deck. Also, because it's such an efficient source of , you have more time to build. Even if your Big Money opponent gets almost all the Provinces, you can easily come back.
