#1 Wasteland +42% ($135)

Wasteland

Wasteland is a key staple in many Legacy decks and in a few vintage decks. But the price spike of Wasteland is a surprise, since the playrate of the card is not that much bigger in comparison to a few months ago.

One thing did change: Death and Taxes is now a popular Legacy deck. We've seen Rishadan Port spike to $125, and has since corrected down a litte, and is steady around $115. Wasteland is strictly better in Legacy and a lot more decks run it. It's also more rare, since Wasteland is an uncommon. 

Wasteland lost a few percentage points since yesterday, but I think the card will retain its price. But sadly, its another card in a long line of legacy staples that spiked in price.

 

#2 Seizan, Perverter of Truth +100% ($3.28) 

Seizan, Perverter of Truth

 

One word: Nekusar.

Again.

Answer to last week's question why Winds of Change spiked in price?

Also Nekusar. (Thanks for all the tweets guys!)

 

#3 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (+98.4%)  ($7.62)  

Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

 

It's not surprising that Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is a winner! It's one of those very lucrative speculation targets and underpriced staples a format sometimes has. It's a key card in Legacy's Death & Taxes archetype. And you could buy them for only $3.50 a piece. 

When a deck gets more poplular, prices will go up. And this is a speculation target that will easily retain a high value over a medium-long term. 

Check out these graphs for a price overview of the Death and Taxes archetype:

 

Death and Taxes $0 - $15

 

Death and Taxes $15- +-$30 

 

Death and Taxes $110+
