The enchantment Into the Wilds allows a player to look at the top card of their library and play it if it's a land.

If I have 4 Into the Wilds in play, can I look at the top card four times, and, in theory, play 4 lands before my draw step?

Minor terminology note: If you happen to have 4 lands on top of your deck, and 4 Into The Wilds in play, then you will get to put all 4 lands into play, but you will NOT get to "play" all 4 lands. The word "play" refers specifically to either casting a spell or playing a land, and you can only "play" 1 land per turn unless you have effects that let you play more. "Put it onto the battlefield" lets you get the land onto the battlefield without "playing" it. Meaning you could still "play" your 1 normal land from hand in the main phase after all your Into the Wild stuff. –  GendoIkari Mar 9 at 18:32

They do stack, but only if you get the right cards on top of your library.

Into the Wilds has a triggered ability. At the beginning of your upkeep, four triggered abilities (one for each copy of Into the Wilds) are put on the stack, and we resolve then one at at time.

So if the first trigger resolving reveals a land card and you put it into play, then the next trigger will reveal a new card. But if it doesn't reveals a land card, then next ones will just reveal the same card again.

So they stack only so far as they keep revealing lands. As soon as one reveal a non land card, the remaining ones are just redundant (unless of course you somehow change the top card or your library before the next trigger resolves. There are a lot of cards that would allow you to do that).

Excellent. That's what I'd hoped. –  Matt Ellen Mar 9 at 13:42
