Overview

Urza continues his massive ascent. No card since Jace, Vryn's Prodigy has reached these heights so quickly, and no card in our current Standard has even come close. He has saturated the Standard meta and become an instant star in almost every format he touches. How far will he go? I wouldn't buy into calls of him being another Mind Sculptor, but he has definitely pushed boundaries that make such a future comparison possible. I suspect he'll settle around this range for now, though. Perhaps in a couple weeks, when he's a staple in almost every Pro Tour Dominaria top 8 deck, he'll reach even further heights.

Overview

Tendershoot is now just shy of being ten times his price a month ago. The love of Slimefoot has helped. He should level off soon though. If you were able to scoop some up before this rise, listing them should start to feel safe before long.

 The Immortal Sun is this week's other big winner. While it hasn't seen Tendershoot's exponential growth, it's doubled in the past month. It should begin to plateau soon as well.

Overview

Little development this week. Ixalan has begun to retract from the previous month's rise. Dominaria stirred the pot quite well, but as Grand Prix Birmingham grows smaller in our rear view mirrors, the shake up is settling down and the meta is becoming more defined.

Overview

The Scarab God's presence has fallen greatly in the new meta, and his price falls with him.

 Earthshaker Khenra is on the rise again. Although Red Aggro has been in a slump since Dominaria released, it has begun to adapt and regain traction.

Overview

Gideon and Rhonas both continue to rise, but I would suspect that they too will begin to level off soon. Pro Tour Dominaria begins in two weeks, and things should quiet down until then.

Overview

Heart of Kiran has been on a downtrend for over a full year, having reached $25 shortly after release and then been in a constant state of decline ever since. This week, however, it shows signs that the gains we've saw in the past couple weeks were more than just background noise.  Given its use in several of Standard's new meta decks, I wouldn't be surprised if it continues its rise for some time. It'll never attain it's release price again, but hitting $5 by the end of May is fully believable.

Overview

Most of this week's Kaladesh changes were background noise of a settling meta. Inventors' Fair is the only card to see a significant growth, and it's movement has just been a small back and forth as it tries to find its spot to settle. Chandra has likewise been wobbling, as it continues to weave back and forth just shy of the $20 mark. She's half the price she was seven months ago, but her continued presence in Standard's top decks means she could easily start regaining that lost ground at a moment's notice.

Overview

Off the heels of a buyout two weeks ago, Mana Vault's market price is gradually rising to meet it's listings. As we've seen in past weeks, the entire Masterpiece market has become a hot bed of reliable growth. The set as a whole gained over 10% value in the past month, and this has been a trend for some time. Expeditions saw a steady decline leading up to its rotation, but Inventions is showing quite the opposite. These cards may one day be the stuff of legends, competing with the most grandeur cards of all time.

Overall Summary

 

Pro Tour Dominaria starts in two weeks. Overall, things will settle down until then. The days leading up to the Pro Tour are always fraught with quick gains as excitement builds, but they are almost always relagated to the premier decks expected to take the format. A quick flip of cards between now and then could give a small profit, but larger gains would come if the top decks are at all unexpected.
