Oath of the Gatewatch Expeditions

Hi Everyone,
I'm not sure if you all heard but the Expeditions for Oath of the gatewatch were leaked. It's going to be the 10 filter lands that are available in Modern and Ancient Tomb, Wasteland, Dust Bowl, Strip Mine, and a few others. They are on all the spoiler sites if you haven't seen them already.

I think the idea of Expeditions is great. They allow Wizards to reprint a card without driving the value of existing versions into the ground and is a sweet special edition to collect. But, what's with some of the choices? Kor Haven and Dust Bowl.

I can't even tell you what Kor Haven does, and Dust Bowl is some kind of bad Tectonic Edge effect (not exactly sure to be honest). I think including this kind of card makes it so all the expeditions aren't good, it makes it like opening a foil junk mythic, it's just a disappointment.

The idea is great, but the execution (like everything Wizards does, I'm specifically looking at Magic Online) just wasn't as good as it could have been.
