Overview

As the set continues farther into draft season, prices continue to depress. Booster box EV is settling near booster box MSRP, and that means we're settling into the pattern Ixalan will follow for the remainder of its time in the sun.

Outside of some small gains due to random noise, Hour of Devastation continues to descend just as Ixalan does. Unless the metagame shakes up dramatically, don't expect to see much if any significant upward movement in the next few weeks.

Overview

Hazoret the Fervent stands ready to break the $20 mark, but everything else is either lacking or simply uninteresting. That said, Nissa, Steward of Elements offers interesting potential whether played as a three-drop or as a game-ending haymaker, so don't count her out just yet.

Overview

As far as the Invocations go, Iconic Masters holds the attention of short-term speculators, which means that it's a good time to pick up any Invocations you feel may gain value later on. There are many different offerings across both 60- and 100-card formats, and as long as you avoid overinflated tat such as The Scarab God, it'll be hard to go wrong in broadening your portfolio with a few unreadable cards here and there.

Overview

Aether Revolt boxes are pretty good value, all things considered, due to the inclusion of one of the most expensive Standard uncommons in recent memory. However, like so many other Standard sets, it's in that awkward mid-season holding pattern where you're not liable to see many significant price changes for good or for ill.

Overview

We're free of major price manipulations this week, and that means we're seeing some natural rises in the Amonkhet Inventions. With some of these cards having no other special printings and in some cases no other foil printings whatsoever, it's understandable that we're going to see these kinds of slow, steady increases over the next while until the Inventions eventually plateau.

Overall Summary

 

With the release of Iconic Masters largely being a flop by all accounts and the ongoing spoiler season for Unstable taking people's attention, there isn't really much going on in Standard. Perhaps this is for the best, though, as highly swingy prices are good for speculators and investors, but bad for players. It's always better to know what you're getting into when you buy into a deck, rather than having to hope that the cards you want don't spike before you can get hold of them, or that cards you just acquired don't tank in value. For a return to that kind of pricing paradigm, we'll have to wait until January, and that's a good thing all around.

 

Meanwhile, Sorin Markov is still on Innistrad, stuck in a rock.
