Overview

The Phoenix rises. Everyone else falls. There's something poetic in there, I suppose, but at the end of the day it's just a case of value concentrating in a high-demand mythic from a set without a lot of demand from the top end of its rarity. As stated in previous editions of The Magic Market Index, look to Chandra, Torch of Defiance's price trajectory to get a feel for Rekindling Phoenix's.

Overview

If this trend continues, we may see value concentration at the top that's not quite as bad as Dragon's Maze but still pretty embarrassing. There's just not a lot of oomph to this set when Kaladesh Block was so powerful.

Overview

In my professional opinion as a Magic doctor an accountant, we've got an acute case of Dragon's Maze Syndrome here. Don't look to this set if you want to realize any kind of trade or sale value, unless you think you can get something out of The Scarab God.

Overview

Hazoret's price is cooling off, and probably won't ever return much higher above the $20 mark. The Invocations simply take up too much value within the set as a total entity for prices to keep high levels over an extended period of time.

Overview

There aren't any noteworthy upward movements this week outside of maybe a couple cards that might be seeing slightly more Modern demand as the metagame continues to adapt to two high-powered unbans. Beyond that, any price movements you see here below the top end of cards such as Blood Moon and Through the Breach are simple noise.

Overview

Things are holding remarkably steady for a set nearing the end of its useful life. Walking Ballista, Metallic Mimic, and Fatal Push are the obvious value-holders in the long run. Two of those cards are cross-format powerhouses, and the other will always be in demand for tribal decks. That said, there are a few solid Commander cards in here, such as Baral and Disallow, which will avoid becoming complete chaff in the long run, though don't expect them to keep their current price tags.

Overview

The downswing continues hard for poor Chandra, while everything else is flying a holding pattern for the time being. If you haven't offloaded your Chandras yet, make sure to do so sooner rather than later.

Overview

Artifacts are doing quite well for themselves given the recent leak of the historic mechanic, which rewards you for playing any artifact whatsoever, not just ones with a specific subtype or supertype. This is a prime example of why you keep a well-diversified trade binder, because you never know what will happen that will cause the prices of low-supply cards to jump.

Overall Summary

 

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.
