Welcome to The Magic Market Index. This weekly article series documents the price changes of cards currently in print, and offers insight into what cards to invest in and what to ignore. This weekly article series covers all expansion sets and masterpiece series sets in Standard, from the time of their prerelease to the time of their rotation out of Standard. Currently, this covers all sets in the Kaladesh, , Amonkhet, and Ixalan blocks, as well as the Inventions and Invocations masterpiece series sets. Promotional sets, special sets, pack foils, and non-set releases are not covered.

While Dominaria discussion circles the Internet, any thunder stolen from Wizards of the Coast's spoiler season is made up for in market activity related to possible shenanigans with new mechanics. Set analysis is beyond the scope of this article series, but suffice to say, there's going to be a lot of Modern and even some Legacy demand for cards in that set, and anything in Standard or a Masterpiece set that synergizes with Dominaria's cards is going to see a sharp demand spike. Talk about a brave new world, that has such mechanics in it.
