Overview

We certainly didn't waste any time finding a breakaway star for this set, and an aggressively costed tribal lord that offers both card advantage and inevitability would seem to fit that bill nicely. The only question is whether Fish will prove itself a long-term Standard success, as Modern can't sustain a $20 price tag for an in-print Standard mythic rare. We're already seeing hints that perhaps early hype was a bit much for the Merfolk lord, and the prospect of maintaining a price tag over $20 is shaky at best. Be cautious here. The real card with room for growth, in this writer's opinion, is Jadelight Ranger, being mono-coloured and very easy to slot into a toolbox strategy, while granting immediate card advantage. Both Collected Company and Green Sun's Zenith can find it in older formats, and it doesn't care how many other Merfolk you run. Whether it's better than Tireless Tracker in those formats, and thus whether it will grow in price, remains to be seen, but it's a safer gamble than a two-colour tribal lord.

Overview

Unclaimed Territory is not a card you want to hold onto in the long term. Always be wary of cards whose prices are fueled mainly by hype, and sell into that hype with extreme prejudice. Beyond that, we're seeing quite a few gains from cards of all tribes, and the trick will be to monitor tournament results over the next few weeks to determine which tribes are winners and which tribes are losers.

Overview

It's slim pickings here, although The Scarab God's price resurgent is a boon to his true believers. Be careful, though, as this overly aggressively costed, game-stealing menace could easily be on the chopping block now that we've seen Wizards' capricious Standard bannings aren't a one-time thing.

Overview

The big winner here is, interestingly, Hazoret. The red deck will win even when you take away two of its main win conditions, apparently. As Foretold, is, as foretold, cooling off, while everything else just kind of languishes in price noise hell.

Overview

There aren't really any notable gains to talk about this week, and Hazoret the Pervert's main deck losing two cards is seemingly affecting her Invocation price. The net effect is that this set continues to dwindle downward. Jokes about the unreadable text aside, it really does lack the coherent identity of the Expeditions and the Inventions, leading to less casual appeal. Still, long-term prospects are good if you're willing to hold out for them.

Overview

In a set this old, there generally isn't much to talk about, but Heroic Intervention is gaining currency in Standard as a way to get around pesky little things like mass removal. There are far worse pickups to speculate on than that one.

Overall Summary

With a new Standard upon us and precious little time having been taken up to establish the new metagame, there's still good headway to be made by new and innovative decks. Tribes that look poor may yet find ways to prove themselves, and that means the format's perfect for speculation if you're keen enough to read tournament results accurately. Stay tuned for whether such speculation will pay off, because for some, it absolutely will.
