This week showed a lot of big movers and huge spikes, but will they still have their value at the end of next week?

#1 Sygg, River Cutthroat +214,6% ($6.26) 

Sygg, River Cutthroat

Sygg, River Cutthroat has spiked this week, and fell back in the days after. But the big question for this card is a simple why? Some people say people are betting on Merfolks in Modern. But that archetype doesn't have much tournament winning decklists to really prove it's potency. And the lists on paper or MTGO that are successfull and run Sygg, run it only once. But I do need to add that Merfolk is a rather low-budget way to get started and it's a fun deck to play. Also check out #3: Silvergill Adept for more on this.

One could imagine that Sygg, River Cutthroat is a nice card to have when your opponent has got a Dark Confidant. But only when he draws a card that is CMC 3 or more. And that might just be too conditional. 

To me, Sygg, River Cutthroat is a speculation that Merfolk might get big and therefore people are buying merfolk that seem interesting. I think Sygg, River Cutthroat won't be able to retain it's value.

 

#2 Wound Reflection +118,3% ($5)

Wound Reflection

Wound Reflection looks like a classic buyout. Two days ago there was little stock for this card and as I am writing this only 9 stores have this card available at this time. Most of them have a handful of copies, only one is topping a stock of 10 right now.

A Reddit discussion points to Mogis, God of Slaughter, a card spoiled for BOTG. With both in play you can punish your EDH opponents for not sacrificing a creature every turn. Meaning that they have to play a creature every singe turn, just for feeding it to Mogis. 

Wound Reflection lost value right after it's initial spike. It's hard to say if a second spike is coming our way. Wound Reflection is a typical low value rare that you might have lying around somewhere in mint condition. By itself, it only has (though limited) casual multiplayer appeal. But combo it with Mogis and it becomes more interesting. It might be possible that people tried to sell their shoebox copy to their LGS, in the hopes of getting some money out of it. A increase in supply can drop the price. One big sidenote: this spike looks like a buyout, and in that case there might be too little demand for this card. Choose wisely!

 

 #3 Silvergill Adept +45.4% ($4.10)

Silvergill Adept

Silvergill Adept is not the traditional hype-spike. It's increasing in value slightly every day, and now it's really getting somewhere.

Check out this reddit thread for answers!

Weekly Winners 2021 - 36

Just like last week, the Commander: Innistrad: Midnight Hunt spoilers are the main factor of influence on the markets this week. There are enough cards spoiled for the brewing to commence and we expect a lot more movement in the coming weeks!

Like every week, just in time for (digital) FNM, I'll now tell you about the cards that will be the talk of the (digital) town tonight!

Catalyst Stone Daybreak Ranger Oboro, Palace in the Clouds

Weekly Winners 2021 - 13

This week we saw a lot of interesting movement. Most of it caused by Strixhaven spoilers, but the old frame fetchlands spiked as well.

Deserted Temple Mox Tantalite Windswept Heath

Weekly Winners 2021 - 12

For the first time since the COVID pandemic hit, our interest page looks like normal for a change! Many (huge) spikes from different sets and eras. I choose to see this as an omen of better times ahead!

Chain of Smog Illumination Magma Sliver

Weekly Winners 2021 - 10

Somewhat of an odd week. Not really any spikes that has one really obvious or notable reason and of course still a lot of older cards moving up.

Selective Memory Pearl Medallion Zombie Master

Weekly Winners 2021 - 08

The most interesting week in a long, long time! Maybe I'm a but biased due to my love for Legacy, but this week that format is the biggest driving factor behind the three weekly winners.

Ethereal Forager Stifle Allosaurus Shepherd

Weekly Winners 2021 - 07

An interesting week, again driven by old card speculation and EDH. But we also have a special edition of Cheap Pickups, with a new way to look at cards that are (still) cheap pickups, but might go up later.

Shivan Dragon Sapphire Medallion Elvish Champion

Weekly Winners 2021 - 05

A strange and eventful week in the world of finance. Where you'd expect tons of cards to spike due to new brews, we mainly see a new hausse of reserved list cards being bought out. And also non-reserved list cards that happen to be MTG classics.
