Overview

Movement is, again, limited largely to the top end. Now that everybody's had time to digest both Masters 25 and the bulk of Dominaria, it's back to business as usual for the middle of Standard season.

Overview

Gideon's ability to maintain his price owes largely to the fact that he's playable in formats other than Standard. Hazoret, for all her potential, is more of a gimmick than a mainstay in Modern and Legacy. Rhonas picking up steam is largely due to normal metagame shifts. It's just the ebb and flow of Standard, magnified a little bit because of the "mythic rare" and "god" premiums attached to a card.

Overview

It looks like our old friend Maelstrom Pulse has been the target of a little buyout. While The Magic Market Index isn't against people realizing value or even financial gain in their deals and through their collections, we can only shake our heads at people who treat magical, nonland permanent destroying pulses like shares or ETFs. Needless to say, if you have a favourite Invocation you've been eyeing but haven't pulled the trigger on, it's better to get in now than see a spike happen later.

Overview

Sparta Kick is now the third highest value card in this set. Without a meaningful reprint, it could conceivably break the $10 mark someday, being a cross-format all-star and almost certain not to be topped any time soon. As stated in a previous edition of The Magic Market Index, people love them some tribal decks, but the $8 mark simply isn't sustainable for poor Metallic Mimic. Neither, unfortunately, will the $7 mark be.

Overview

Chandra's glory days have waned, and her price continues to reflect this. She does see some play in both Modern and Legacy, at least to a fringe extent. She'll probably wind up around the $10-15 range once everything is said and done.

Overview

If you're the sort of person who looks at Mox Opal's completely artificial jump this week and thinks, "Wow, that's amazing, I hope to do something like that some day," then you have both bad grammar for your comma splice and bad intentions for the game. This is the kind of thing that makes people think "naked profiteering, price manipulation, and huge price jumps" when they hear the words "Magic finance," and the broader Magic finance community would readily echo these sentiments here.

Overall Summary

 

A few notable, artificial jumps aside, this week is basically just a return to the calm status quo that will remain until another big shakeup. Make sure to offload any valuable rares or mythic rares that are on their way down, because you can always pick them up again in a few months at a notably lower price. Unless they're Masterpieces. Such is Magic.
