Overview

The fire rises as Rekindling Phoenix shows its value as a recurring threat. The rest of the top end is settling, along with overhyped cards like Dire Fleet Daredevil, so make sure you get out of bad investments before they age like a fine milk. Past that, the set isn't moving too much, and barring a metagame shakeup, we should have a clear idea of the set's price trajectories for the immediate future.

Overview

Vraska, you need to calm down. Seriously. That much contempt may be valuable, but you could like... see a counselor or something. On a more serious note, Carnage Tyrant is showing that there's value in being a big, hard-to-kill attacker, and cross-format all-star Search for Azcanta is nearing what should be its peak. It's good, but it's still only a rare, and now is not the time to be buying into it unless you really need it for a deck.

Red continues to do well in Standard, so Hazoret keeps going up. There isn't much noteworthy other than the fact that, well, the red deck wins.

Overview

Paradoxically, we're actually seeing a card go up a fair amount this week. Oh yeah, and an uncommon is still in the #4 slot overall. Fun fact, the Japanese word for 4 can also mean "death," which is appropriate given what Sparta Kick did to Tarmogoyf's metagame share.

If you look at this set for long enough, something will eventually move. Not this week, though.

Overview

Unlike the Invocations, the Inventions just keep going down overall as a set. There's no single culprit, either. The set's just cooling off. It should go back up in the very long run, though.

Overall Summary

The Pro Tour has shown us yet again that bargain-bin rares can come out of left field and really be worth... a few dollars, at least. Past that, the Pro Tour being Modern means the Standard metagame has to learn to shape itself, which means there isn't going to be as much in the ways of innovation and thus price movement. Expect current price trajectories either to continue or, in the case of high-value cards, to level off for the time being.
