Weekly Winners 2022 - 13

01 Apr
by Arjen

The first spoilers are coming in for Streets Of New Capenna and Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate so we are all awaiting what cards may become better and prices may spike. But thus far we have not really seen any spike that could be directly related to those. I just arrived at my holiday address, but I couldn't leave you hanging, so the Weekly Winners are a bit later than usual today.

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

Come discuss this week's price movements with us on Reddit.


#1 Fable of the Mirror-Breaker $5.65 (+300%)

Fable of the Mirror-Breaker


This is a fun one! It's one of these undervalued cards when Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty came out. The consensus seemed to be that it was a fun card and especially the throwback to Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is fun! In March this card was selling for about $0.40! That's how undervalued it was and personally I also didn't see it back then. For three mana you get a 2/2 that creatures a treasure token when it attacks, you get to cycle a card, and get another 2/2 that can create a token copy of another target nonlegendary creature. At worst its just another 2/2, at best you get some awesome triggers from the creature you copy (assuming you target something with an ETB effect).

The card is being mentioned more and more by pro-players and content creatures and sees a bunch of play in Standard like in Rakdos Control, but is also showing up in Modern and Pioneer.

#2 Argothian Enchantress $119.99 (+86%)

Argothian Enchantress


This creature, originally printed in Urza's Saga is, in my opinion, a pretty known card since it has seen play in Legacy Enchantress builds since forever. The power of the card cannot be denied. For only you get a 0/1 that cannot be targeted meaning it is hard to remove for your opponents unless they play some kind of sweeper. But whenever you cast an enchantment spell, you get to draw a card. Funnily enough a very similar card that also sees play in both Modern and Legacy Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, is currently trending down.

So when we try to speculate on why this card is going up now we can see that is started going up rather quickly since the release of Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. In the past few weeks we have seen more cards show up in the Weekly Winners with an enchantment theme that have gone up since the release of this latest set. Neon Dynasty features a lot of new enchantment cards or cards that care about enchantments and while we do not really see these cards in Legacy decks or other competitive formats, we do see them being more popular in commander. Nowadays commander is one of the most driving factors behind card prices. Argothian Enchantress now shows up in most decks revolving around Sythis, Harvest's Hand, Tatsunari, Toad Rider, and Go-Shintai of Life's Origin.

When we look at the price I think $120 is really high for a card that is not on the reserved list and could be reprinted soon. I know the Eternal Masters sells for $74, but also there I don't think the price will stick. It feels like the card has become more and more populair and people either bought the card out of panic to make sure they have a copy, or speculators have jumped on the band-wagon. We would have to wait and see where the price settles at. That being said, I would not be surprised if the card received a reprint soon-ish since it has been quite a while since it has seen one.

#3 Second Chance $29.99 (+224%)

Second Chance


This card could have been our number #2 winner, but decided to move it down to the third. Why? Because it seems like this card is going up mainly for being on the reserved list. We have seen this happen more the past few weeks where cheaper cards on the reserved list are moving up quickly. It feels a bit surprising it took this long for this card to move up and on the other hand I can imagine it is not really a populair card.

When we look at other cards with "take another turn" effects we see that these mostly are pretty popular. Taking extra turns is fun apparently. Not for the other people playing, but it may be for you. Nexus of Fate is almost $40 and Time Warp also comes in at $14. Cards that enable extra turns draw people, so why would Second Chance be any different. This probably comes down to this card being quite situational. You can't just play it and expect an extra turn. You have to be at 5 life or less during your upkeep. That's quite the restriction.

I think these restrictions are the reason this card has not really been populair before even when being able to grant you an extra turn. However, it is on the reserved list and thus the price is easy to manipulate.


Cheap Pickups

Please note: for our 'record low' we consider the price of the card over the past 7 years. Many cards have been even cheaper (a) decade(s) ago. Also note: some cards are still going down, and might be even cheaper pickups next week.
