Overview

With the Pro-Tour spikes still subsiding, and this set still coming out of its infancy, Amonkhet took a rather sharp decline this week. Its top cards dropped an average of 9-10%. This is perfectly natural, and to be expected. It will continue to decline, of course, but the steepness of its decline should subside within the next couple weeks.


Two cards broke the mold this week. Anointed Procession went against the grain and continued its ascent, fueled mainly by casual and Commander love. This card has plenty of room left to climb though, especially when you considering that its green equivalent, Parallel Lives, still sits over $8.


Sweltering Suns was also quite contrary to set trends, jumping 18% this week. It has been slowly growing its worth in standard as a wide removal card.

Overview

Invocations already adds less value to its home set than any other masterpiece set. This is especially troublesome with Force of Will representing 15% of all value in Invocations.


Daze lost half of last week's gains. The spike had little justification other than a short-lived shortage of supply, so I would expect it to continue moving back down towards the $50 mark.

Overview

Fatal Push, the card that adds more value thanĀ Inventions, has hit yet another impressive milestone. In boxes that do not contain an invention, Fatal Push now represents over 25% of the value that box holds, on average. That's more value than you'll get out in the majority of boxes from mythic rares.


Outside of Fatal Push, Aether Revolt saw very little development. The market already saw a sharp correction on its previous spikes, and there's been very little change in the few marquee cards for the set.

Overview

Much like its sister, Aether Revolt, Kaladesh saw very little movement this week. Only the top two gearhulks saw any meaningful change, and they have been on a roller coaster since release.

Overview

Sol Ring had a decent jolt, gaining 8% this week. Opposingly, Crucible of Worlds fell 5%. These were the only two changes of significance, and the set itself held within half a percent. Holding its value so well at this point shows how strong a well built masterpiece set can be.

Overview

Eldritch Moon had a near-comical week. Although it did see a soft decline, no card in the entire set gained more than one penny in value, and 70% of the cards in the set saw literally zero change. The small rise we saw during Pro-Tour has subsided, and Eldritch Moon is back on track to continue on an easy downward trend.

Overview

Relentless Dead fell even further, dropping to the same level it was at prior to the Pro-Tour. Likewise, Westvale Abbey, Always Watching, and Diregraf Colossus all had noticeable drops, although Diregraf continues holding most of its Pro-Tour value. The rest of the set remained calm, holding to it's value well.

Overview

For continuing to be largely above where it stood before the Pro-Tour, Oath stayed surprisingly still. Eldrazi continue to hold power throughout multiple formats, as do many of the other cards within its table. Only Kalitas saw any significant value change. It has been on a constant downward trend for over a year now, and this change is simply in keeping with its bearing.

Overview

Marvel decks continue to hoist Ulamog, but the rest of the set is falling back quickly from the small surge it had. Battle for Zendikar will return to its abhorrent stature soon.

Overview

Expeditions continued to hold their value beautifully. In the past 12 weeks, the set has fallen only 1%. This is basically negligible for a set that can still get opened, especially for such a long scope.


Much of the staying power resides in the fact that spells come and go, but lands are eternal. There are an infinite combinations of Red-Blue decks, with different archetypes, card combos, plans, and styles. All of them, however, will gladly run Scalding Tarn if legal.


Of all the cards in the set, only the bottom few will be forgotten with time, making the set extremely resilient over the years. Expeditions is absolutely a strong investment for the future.

Overall Summary

Only a few cards in all of Standard had any noticeable change, and the majority of the Pro Tour gains have dissipated. Overall, commentary is short and sweet for many of the sets this week, as most saw very little development. Boring can have its upsides though. Although prices continue to trend downward, we saw no surprising changes, and no price plummets. A quiet, predictable market might not make gamblers and risk-takers happy, but it is definitely well-suited for the normal player.
