Expedition Map
This card's design is so simple and elegant, it's hard to believe it didn't originally appear until Zendikar. The first interaction that ran through many people's minds at that time was the Urza lands, but the block itself provided a lot of even more exciting targets, including Emeria, Valakut, and the Worldwake dual lands (also, come back tomorrow!). It's also a version of this effect that non-green decks don't have to pay extra for compared to their green counterparts, which is not always a given. For casual players who use larger horizons, I'd recommend getting some if possible, because it's a given that lands with special abilities will continue to be printed for as long as you are playing Magic.

Today's card of the day is Expedition Map which is a one mana artifact that taps for two to be sacrificed and search your library for a land to put into hand.  The fact that this is a colorless and fairly low cost method of searching non-basic lands gives noticeable value in formats like Commander.  In other settings the ability to use more copies of most lands reduces the need for a Map, but if the land is critical enough a search can be worth including.

Now we're talking. a total of 3 to tutor any land of your choice? Sure, let's go for that. Playing a game of EDH and need a gaea's cradle to combo out? go for this. Looking to pick out that one land that's evaded you most of the game? Well, here you go. Even in constructed it's a pretty solid 1-drop.
