Overview
"Ramunap Red" will be a recurring phrase this week, as it dominated the Pro Tour and is skyrocketing every card attached to it. Earthsaker Khenra is the first of such cards. He continues his impressive ascent that we saw start last week. Now at over seven times his value before his rise, and definitely a hot selling commodity, a simple two-week investment of $12 would already give enough return for an entire Hour of Devastation booster box. Abrade and God-Pharoah's Gift are following similar suit in their ascent. God-Pharoah's gift isn't attached to Ramunap Red, but it's still rising as the centerpiece for a competitive deck. Abrade is this set's premier uncommon, but I sincerely doubt it'll reach anything close to Fatal Push levels.

Overview

Hazoret soared to two-and-a-half times her value practically overnight. As one of Ramunap Red's cornerstones, and one of only two mythics in the average deck, Hazoret is set to be the marque card to rise and fall with the deck. There's no denying Hazoret's power - across multiple formats - and it's doubtful she'll fall back quickly, if much at all. For now, I expect her to rise further.

Overview

Scarab God's popularity is increasing, driving his Invocation up further. Most everything else is just background noise, with a little inflation from the general excitement of the Pro Tour.

Overview

Aether Revolt missed out on much of the Pro Tour hypse, with very little notable change. Metallic Mimic and Heart of Kiran are the only cards with real observable change, and each of those cards are simply following their long term trends. Mimic won't fall out of multi-format favor anytime soon, and Heart continues to become less relevant to the meta.

Overview

Chandra is the other half of Ramunap Red's mythic duo, and the more expensive half at that. Chandra has already been a popular card across multiple formats, and the surge from her Pro Tour domination is creating a nice value swell. Bomat Courier is yet another Ramunap Red card that has skyrocketed in value, appearing on our tables for the first time. Interestingly, these surges have increased the average rare slot value, booster box value, and total set value for two weeks straight.

Overview

The buyouts in Inventions have caused some strong waves, as buyout targets soar after they sell out, and then crash back downward as stock is replinished. Chrome Mox, Rings of Brighthearth, Arcbound Ravager, and Extraplanar Lens have all dropped back from previous buyouts.

Chalice of the Void and Wurmcoil Engine were this week's targets. There is definitely a systematic, deliberate method  going on.

Overview

Horizon Canopy falls back from last week's buyout. Expeditions has missed most of the buyout craze that has been happening with Inventions, and this week's lack of movement gives hope that it will continue avoiding such shenanigans.

Overall Summary

I got away with saying "Ramunap Red" only seven times, which actually feels pretty good considering 90% of all movement this week was from this singular deck. Don't be lured in by these cards now, though. Some of its corner stone cards will continue to remain high, but much of this inflation is simply a matter of extreme hype. Most of Rumanap Red's meteoric rises will plummet back down in the next few weeks. They won't return to their previous values, but they will definitely decline over the coming weeks.
