Awesome. Expected after Leyline of Sanctity, but there was still doubt after the new red Leyline. Also, either the best or second best art (I really don't like the original art compared to this one and the M11 art).
I am going to make sure I pick up like 8 copies of this.
Usually rare cards had some hard time being over $20. Dunno about this one being over $20. $15 seems about right. Crucible didn't hold its price at all even as mythic (although not comparable to this sb super star).
Actually I hope its price get crushed, so I can get as many copies for all my decks.
Haha, I have like six of these floating around between sideboards and edh decls. I had no idea they’d spiked so high or I would have sold a few. Still, it’s always nice to see them reprinting cards that need it.
A RARE printed in a standard set? Crucible of worlds was a $60 card and got reprinted at mythic yet was available for under $15 for several months. Sure leyline sees a lot of modern sideboard play but Crucible sees a ton of EDH play which balances out. This card is going to be sub $10, pure supply and demand will stop this staying at $30 because you can't have such high EV in the box as everyone will crack boxes to sell lowering the price etc etc.
Also for a lot of people they already bought leylines if they used them in modern because before the spikes dude to the original dredge build it was a $20 card in 2018. Crucible on the other hand had been over $50 since the end of 2015 and likely priced a lot of people out for several years until the reprints.
My point being demand is not as high as you'd think and price will tank a lot more than you think too. If you're in the market for leyline for whatever reason you'll easily get a playset sub $50 which is a still compared to the current $50 for 1 price tag.
