    From what recall, modern masters aether vial was around $10 when modern masters 2013 came out.


    When MMA1 comes out, I open one, and then spend $25 for another three copies.
    But this is nothing related to the current price tag.

    The funny bit is that the sole printing to date of Master of the Pearl Trident has a higher purchase price than several of the whiteborder printings of Lord of Atlantis. So this isn’t even whining about actual value - it’s whining about wanting a new card frame black border LoA. As if THAT should have been WotC’s reprint priority. They printed the more valuable card, they just didn’t satisfy the people with very specific wants. “And old style white border on my fishlord? No thank you!”


    There is nothing funny at all.
    This is not the product I am interested in because of the lack of Lord of Atlantis. Therefore I skip.
    Simple enough.

    You do not need to analysis why I think so or convince me this is a good or valuable product.
    No matter how good it is, just not relevent to me.

    They’re modern legal cards. They’re cards I would like to get an include in modern brews i’m working on. They’re seemingly not only not used in any modern decks, but not in any decks in any format. For being modern legal cards I’d like to use in modern decks but have unusually high prices for cards unused in competitive decks in any format, I thought I might ask here why they’re holding the prices they are. Am I not allowed to ask? Have I breached unspoken rules?


    These two cards are popular in EDH, and they do not get any reprint. Thus, the the price goes up.
    Wish this answers to your question Smile

    Just wondering why The Scarab God is more than 40 dollars right now... is it because of Standard or a M odern deck is using it??
    On the MTGStocks page it will actually tell you which decks are playing the card and in which format. Scrolling down has got to be easier than making a post here and then waiting on responses. also google


    On that tip - what the hell is keeping Idyllic Tutor and Shared Animosity so high!? They’re not being used in ANYTHING, but their pricing is considerably higher than other not-being-played Shadowmoor-only rares.


    These cards do almost nothing to Modern.
    Thus their price tag is not a big issue here. Right?

    I think the one you are looking for is Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Smile

    Given that Field of Ruin is an uncommon, it's going to take a lot for it to get up to the $5 range (pre-release price is 50 cents). It will see play, but I don't think this is the next Path or Push.


    You are absolutely right. I will be surprised if Field of Ruin is higher than $3.00 in the incoming year.

    I'd expect the usage rate of Horizon Canopy to go up. It's a good card but not really essential, so a lot of people will make less expensive choices in their decks. If it comes down to say $30, people who didn't want to spend $100 or even $70 per card would be inclined to pick it up. I'd pay $120 for a playset.


    This card will not drop to $30.
    My assumption for the lower bar is $50 Smile

    BTW, I need a playset as well.

    Ditch Kalitas now?


    You should have at least a playset. If you want more for investment, it is up to you.
    The current price should be acceptable.


    I'm asking whether to ditch it, seeing as it rotates out in 3 weeks. No idea why I should have a playset.


    Sorry I do not read your words carefully.
    If you want to sell it, this is not a good time to do it because of the rotation. Better to keep them for another year in order to sell it with a better price tag.

    Personally I would keep a playset for my Modern decks.

    Again, Old-Growth Dryads looks the best in hyper aggro decks from that initial testing of mine.


    Which deck you are testing against? No bolt or push or path?

    Very disappointed Entrancing Melody is a sorcery instead of an instant.


    You can steal Inkmoth if this is Instant Smile

    previews went up today, confirming the leaks
    the biggest news might be the new legendary planeswalker rule - running different versions of the same walker is no longer a liability.
    Jace, Cunning Castaway is yet another combo piece with Doubling Season


    Doubling Season is not Modern playable. Just too slow.

    Relic of Progenitus is way better than Crook of Condemnation in terms of mana efficiency, which is critical in Modern.
    You will not see Crook of Condemnation plays in Modern as long as Relic of Progenitus is legal Smile

    The fact the formats exist and people love playing them is more than enough proof that there's a number of people not interested in paying the price to play modern, but want a non-rotating format. The trouble is that everyone is stuck trying to find an answer to the problem of time and how to deal with wizards method of printing cards. The other problem is the speculator market and the lack of controls leading to buyouts and shady business.


    If there is such a non-rotating constructed format that is can be played less expensive than Modern, it will hurt the bunsiess of Standard.
    WOTC will not make Modern too cheap for such reason, and for the same reason, WOTC will not create (and push) a new cheaper non-rotating constructed format.

    Wish it makes sense to you.
