MTGStocks.com started as a little side-project and a personal pricechecker to keep track of MTG Finance of all cards, but is slowly evolving into a more sophisticated application where card prices are being tracked and analytical trends are being detected. MTGStocks is free, fun and easy to use. If you want to know a little more... read on!
Where do you get your pricing data from?
All prices are being provided by TCGPlayer.com. With this data, we are able to make an analysis of all trends currently happening.
Why do you exclude certain sets from the default Interests?
We exclude sets which are not tournament legal in Legacy, Vintage, Standard and Modern. Beside those sets, we exclude the ones which are very rare. This might be odd, but if we assume there are only a few stores/people offering a certain card from the Alpha set and the cheapest one gets bought, we would immediately see an effect on its average price. We usually are not interested in these effects, because it does not really give a proper insight in the card's value.
The sets we exclude by default are:
Alpha Edition, Archenemy, Battle Royale Box Set, Beatdown Box Set, Beta Edition, Champs Promos, Collector's Edition, Deckmasters Garfield vs Finkel, FNM Promos, Game Day Promos, Gateway Promos, Grand Prix Promos, Judge Promos, Launch Party Cards, Media Promos, Miscellaneous Promos, Portal, Portal Second Age, Portal Three Kingdoms, Prerelease Cards, Pro Tour Promos, Release Event Cards, Special Occasion, Starter 2000, Unglued, Unhinged, Unlimited Edition, Vanguard.
However, by creating a username, you are able to select which sets you would like to show up in your Interests, including the ones we exclude by default!
