    Sorin, Lord of Innistrad also aligns with Orzhov for Gatecrash. It is also a small set mythic. I think you could find a worse place for your tickets.

    Honestly, I just assumed based on seaCHROME coast, COPPERline gorge, DARKSLICK shores (phyrexian oil), RAZORVERGE thicket. They seem like metal locales to me.

    I couldn't agree more with "pick up Darkslicks". All the SoM lands are suffering Rotation dropoff, but I bet they all come back up in the next couple of years, barring a reprint. One quick note about reprint possibility: Rav duals were specifically given generic names for the possibility of reprinting (or so I have heard). Scars lands are really locations on Mirrodin, so they might not have that same possibility.

    I like Jarad's Orders a lot. I think if you look forward three years it is at least a $5 card. 500% over a relatively short period is worth a shot. I actually feel the same way about Deadeye Navigator, particularly foils for EDH. Heck, if either catches on in standard they could be $5 in a month.

    I don't think you can go wrong with Balance. It could be unbanned in Legacy and if it was, it would skyrocket.

    I am with Mr C on bulk rares being the way to go. Huge quantities of cards with potential or unique effects are the way to go IMO.

    Did you really just post this in "Market Street Cafe?". What exactly did you think to point of this section of the forum happens to be?

    And yes, cards that literally double in value in the span of days could be used for investing purposes if you are a big player.

    The bottom line is that people like to 'go infinite' and not spend money on the hobby. I have personally made money over time on MTG. I paid for my wedding and honeymoon on the profits of ebay sales 6 years ago. It is a lot of work, but I personally enjoy it a lot more than grinding the day away at my office job.

    I think one thing that is interesting about finance on MODO is that people look for cheap decks to play, which then skyrocket. I think one card with potential is Mikaeus, the Lunarch.

    Honor of the Pure needs a replacement in all of the white creature swarm style decks, Mikaeus has the added benefit of pumping Champion of the Parish, and it no longer just folds to Gut Shot if you run it out there on turn 2.

    Opinions?

  • posted a message on [[Official]] [RTR] Running Tally of Highest Priced Cards: Updated 11/20/14
    I am surprised that this thread isn't moving based on how exciting this set is.

    Does anyone see any cards here that are poised for an increase? I am really struggling to imagine anything going up too much with the exception of two cards: Angel of Serenity and Jarad's Orders.

    I am in 100% disagreement mode on the Angel with RE. With Titans rotating, it is by far the best creature that you can ramp into in the current standard. It is also the best Unburial Rites target. I personally think it is the best card, or second best in the set. I have had the opportunity to play with Jace yet and he seems to be well regarded.

    As far as Jarad's Orders goes, it is a unique tutor that combos well with a lot of different cards and, like all tutors, it gets better every time a new creature with Graveyard interactions is printed.

    I would love to hear other opinions now that people have played with the cards!

    Modern season is coming and Scalding Tarn is very played in Modern. Not much chance your $50 FoW turns into MORE than $50 any time soon. $50 worth of Tarns might inflate.

    Even better: Pick current in-print cards which are guaranteed future EDH staples and get quanitities in foil.

    Rite of Replication was a $1 foil while in print. Lowest buy-it-now on Ebay right now is $11 shipped. This is a much better rate of return and pretty easy to accomplish.

    At $52 I would personally sell.

  • posted a message on [SCD] - Armada Wurm
    I think the idea of populating your six drop is a bit win-more. Plus, after dropping armada wurm do you really have cards left in hand? (for example didn't you already use your restoration angel?) obviously if you untap with two 5/5 trampling wurms you probably win. Most six drops win the game if you untap with them. I can't see the card maintaining the $15 tag long term. Now, in the short term I could see a quick demand-based increase because of states. I am sure people will test it at the very least if they remember Broodmate Dragon.

    100% sell. I can't see a rare that is not Snapcaster keeping a $20 value for long. Just one man's opinion. Multicolor nature and inability to target the cards you actually need to remove will keep this down. Look at the lists people are brewing: what is this doing for you against Angel of Serenity and Thragtusk?

    I went to my local Walmart and Target. Walmart had 4 of the single Commander Decks, 3 Mirror Mastery and one Devour for Power.

    Target had about 10 of the "Extreme Value Packs", 3 of which contained 3 commander decks plus one precon. Two of them were Political Puppets, Devour, and Mirror Mastery plus a Morningtide Precon. The third one had Counterpunch instead of the Mirror Mastery.

    FYI, I have found that some of the single Mirror Mastery Precons are actually Heavenly Inferno if you open the box.
