I mean sure if you play MTG like you play stocks then its good but for actually playing the game its pretty bad.
YGO has rare and valuable cards that you can collect but in MTG those cards are staples that you need in your deck and basicly required lands.
It's not bad because it's a COLLECTIBLE card game. Half of it all is collecting. As a collector, if my collectibles are going to dip in value, being worth less than I ever paid for them, then there's not much point in actually collecting them. At that point, I might as well just be playing a digital collectible card game. I mean, I suppose it's only natural to look out for number 1, but you dick over collectors and half of MTG as CCG in the process of making it a little more affordable to play. It's hypocritical, really.
What specific lands are you even talking about? There are few ridiculously priced lands that have no budget alternatives outside of Legacy and Vintage.
