#1 Savannah Lions $10 (+1,349.28%) ALL TIME HIGH
Sometimes crazy stuff happens. Savannah Lions spiking is one of those things. I had never thought that Savannah Lions, a obscure and obsolete rare from Revised would ever be the #1 winner. But it is. And to be honest, when looking at the facts of today, it might not be that surprising.
A new format that features the oldest cards in Magic is on the rise and it is driving up prices. 93/94 or Old School Magic is a format in which you can only use cards from those two years of Magic. After last week's article, many people pointed out that 93/94 does have a big impact on prices and that cards like Sedge Troll and Savannah Lions are important pieces in decks.
Maybe you'd think that Savannah Lions is on the Reserved list and therefor it is spiking this high. Newsflash: it is not on the reserved list. It even saw a reprint in Masters 25. It even got reprinted at common and is now a $0.15 card, but you will be able to find copies for $0.01 in online stores as well. 93/94 players are not keen to put a 2018 printing of Savannah Lions since it diminishes the 'old' feel of the deck.
Well it is time to dig out your collections again! Goblin Bombardment has spiked this week. First to $10.95 after settling on $10. The card sees quite some play in EDH-decks. More than 9.000 decks are listed that play it. Don't think is only sees play in Krenko, Mob Boss decks. Goblin Bombardment is also in decks with: Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Marchesa, the Black Rose and Purphoros, God of the Forge (to name a few).
But Goblin Bombardment is good in casual as well, at least, if you combine it with Squee, the Immortal. With that new legend printing, and Mana Echoes you can keep sticking Squee on your catapult. And besides that, any deck with many (or infinite tokens) can do the trick (as long as you have enough mana).
Noble Hierarch has seen quite the uptick this week as it won over 6% in value. A playset of them now costs you $20 more than last week and its price will probably don't drop back soon.
The card is a staple in both Modern and Legacy although Noble Hierarch sees play in more Modern decks. Its spike has more to do with Legacy though, since the Maverick archetype seems to be doing good. Both in paper and online tournaments. The current build differs a bit from its older build from a few years ago, when Maverick was one of the tier decks in Legacy.

And Noble Hierarch is not the only Legacy staple performing better due to Maverick's increase in popularity. Check out these other, well known stapes that have increased in price this week:
