Quote from WizardMN »The way you seem to read the rules is that a Modal Double Faced Card doesn't have a back face at all. At least, not in a way that is relevant. Based on the rules of course.
That is obviously nonsense and I am pretty sure that you are not suggesting it can't be played as a land at all. But it would probably be best for people like OP that are asking the question if you clarified it to be "the rules don't technically support it, but...".

What boggles my mind is rule 722.6, which states a somewhat arbitrary exception to rule 722.3.
I'd be very appreciative if anyone could provide some examples illustrating how it actually differs from what is said by rule 722.3.
Specifically, how do the words
'if no player chooses to perform [B]' (722.6)
actually allow a player to escape
'must then make a different game choice' (722.3)?
Does it solely rely on the fact that the effect actually contains the word 'unless'?
