Should I buy Magic Online Expeditions?

Hi Everyone!

I have some friends asking if they should buy all the BFZ Expeditions. Normally, since they aren't redeemable, I'd have to say no.

No because non-redeemable cards don't have the same cycle if price increases and decreases. But these are different.

Even with Vintage being pushed last year by WOTC with Vintage Masters the Vintage community is not what the Modern community is. This is relevant because the only expeditions (that we're sure of) are the fetch lands (they're played in every format they are legal in). The BFZ "two basics" lands might see some play in eternal formats, but I'm not banking on something that may or may not happen.

Yes because many of the Expedition lands are proven to be staples in all the eternal formats.

So what do we do?

If you want them because they are cool, then get them. If you're trying to invest, remember that they won't behave similarly to regular foil mythics. They are going to be long term investments and the lands that aren't Modern (yes, only modern) staples may not hold value over time.
