Overview

Now we're getting into the meat and potatoes of price movement. As expected, multicolour tribal lords cool off while aggressive red cards do well, especially at the start of the season. Blood Sun, meanwhile, struggles to find a home, as there just aren't that many relevant lands for it to hose in formats that don't already have Blood Moon. All eyes should remain on our vampire duo of Elenda and Twilight Prophet, as a token horde is one of the easiest ways to gain the city's blessing, and those are some powerful effects to sling around.

Overview

With Five-Colour Humans making such waves at the Pro Tour, it's natural the Unclaimed Territory is experiencing a highly pronounced spike. Sell into it and you stand to make some filthy lucre. Vampires and Dinosaurs are as popular as ever, and have prices to match, but the breakout card this week is Vraska's Contempt. "No fuss, no muss, get rid of your guy and gain 2 life at instant speed" is a strong selling point where gods and must-answer creatures are a concern. Be wary, though, because a spike this sharp probably isn't going to last. $7 is a more reasonable price point than $8.

Overview

Speaking of things that Vraska tends to be contemptuous of, The Scarab God is on the rise again. The only question is whether or not he'll survive bans until he rotates.

Overview

There's just no stopping Hazoret the Fervent. Even as her deck eats bans, she remains a ruthlessly efficient threat that can end games single-handedly, either through her massive stats or her hellbent-enabling direct damage. If those bans don't stop her, nothing will. Except Vraska, because her contempt exiles all without distinction.

Overview

The card to keep an eye on here is, obviously, Glint-Sleeve Siphoner. The Bob ability is always powerful, and this is one of the strongest forms it's taken since the original. If Grixis keeps making waves in Standard, there's some substantial gain to be made here if you've been hoarding your copies.

This is where "always invest in real estate" would be good advice, but ever since Botanical Sanctum lost its best friend... ouch.

Overview

As with the Invocations, given the higher than normal values involved, even a couple dollars' worth of movement here or there amounts to little more than noise. It seems this week's attention is more on the Pro Tour than on speculating on fancy pieces of supplementary cardboard.

Overall Summary

While the Pro Tour isn't Standard, that doesn't mean it doesn't have price implications for Standard sets. As we're seeing, Humans is one of the most played decks at the event, and that means that if its conversion rates are high, cards such as Unclaimed Territory could stand to see big gains as everyone rushes to buy into the new hotness. Aside from that, the Standard metagame is beginning to take proper form, and we're seeing that, yet again, The Scarab God reigns, supplemented by familiar decks with new card choices. Just be careful if you do decide to speculate on uncommons, because unless they're true cross-format all stars in the vein of Fatal Push, you might just find yourself with a lot of Claimed Territory nobody wants.
