Who will land first for the Artemis mission, the Moonship or the Blue Moon - National Team...?

By "Moonship" do you mean SpaceX's Starship?

Yes, Tywin believes that even though the first two Artemis Moon landings are scheduled to happen on Starship (only the third is assigned to Blue Origin's vehicle), and Starship's second flight may occur within 12 hours of submitting this post, while New Glenn will be lucky to have its first launch within 12 months, that nonetheless Blue Origin will suddenly accelerate their pace of development so rapidly that their Blue Moon will be ready far earlier than Lunar Starship is, and NASA will have no choice but to switch the contract for the first Artemis Moon landing to them.

All of Tywin's polls are trolling. We should just ignore them.

I'll accept that third option.

I'd guess the first four moon landers used will be something like this:

2027: Artemis 3 using Starship
2029: Artemis 4 using Starship
2030: Artemis 5 using Starship
2031: Artemis 6 using Blue Moon
