Overview

Timmy-smash favourite Carnage Tyrant keeps falling as people realize it's not actually that good. Control decks sweep it away easily, and it comes down too late to stop aggro decks. Meanwhile, Legion's Landing has gained a chunk of value off B/W/x Tokens performing surprisingly well, and the option of spitting out one or more 1/1 lifelink tokens every turn means winning a grindfest is surprisingly easy. Beyond that, there aren't that many price movements of note other than hot cards cooling off,  which is normal for any new set release. Things that look good on paper often don't perform as well in live-fire conditions, and price spikes have a nasty little habit of reversing themselves. Let go of those hostages while you still have the chance.

Overview

The Scarab God's bubble continues to grow. It has to stop sometime, especially since this is a Masterpiece set, but it might actually crack $50 if the hype train continues without the meta adapting to it. Vraska can have as much contempt as she likes, the hour can be glorious, The Scarab God's legacy can be lost, and the desert can even take hold of it, but there are no stops on this hype train we're on. This means its price will be a game of musical chairs you do not want to be the one standing for when the music stops.

Overview

Token strategies asserting themselves means one of their primary enablers, Anointed Procession, will only increase in value. Having even one out makes for amusing Anointer Priest embalming, to say nothing of everything else the deck is capable of doing. In addition, as Ramunap Red continues to be one of the decks to beat, Hazoret the Fervent finds herself well poised to become the most valuable card in the set. We're past the point of snap buying before the hype train pays off, but if you need her for competitive play, she'll hold value reasonably well as long as she's in Standard.

Overview

The price on The Scarab God is a little bit misleading here, as it's certainly easy enough to find below that price point. The Magic Market Index's price snapshots can lead to some interesting pictures, and while the card has definitely spiked to the $130 to $150 range on TCG Player, it's not quite in multibenjamin territory yet.

Not much to report this week, except that one of our newest Bob variants has broken the $2 mark. Good for it.

Are you a land playable in Energy? If so, we have good news for you. If not, you might want to be one of the more aggro-punishing sweepers we've seen lately, otherwise things are going to be a bit lukewarm for you.

Overview

Okay, what's with that totally bull*****, obviously artificial price movement on... wait, there are no massive, inexplicable price jumps this week? We're spared Alexandra's usual obnoxious ranting about profiteers and the MTG finance mentality?

Hallelujah.

Overall Summary

 

Things are settling down for the most part this week, with only a scant few jumps and drops here and there. The Pro Tour date shift is definitely affecting things somewhat, as the metagame has a strong "follow the leader" tendency and it's interesting to see what happens when people can neither netdeck the Pro Tour nor scrape the full list of undefeated Magic Online league decks. We're in somewhat of a transitional period there, and while this means cards such as The Scorpion God are going to be inflated compared to metagames where they're less of a big deal, it does mean that making good sales and trades for now will rely far more on one's individual savvy and ability to evaluate both cards and the metagame than before. Uncharted waters fits the pirate theme, I suppose.
