Weekly Winners 2020 - 28
Just like last week, card were up and down this week due to several reasons. Some because of brewing with M21, others due to EDH, and meanwhile the reserved list is also still a driving factor!
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!
See something interesting in the world of card prices? Be sure to pitch me a tweet: @MTGPeter
Honden of Seeing Winds $4.48 (+200.21%)
My first thought when I saw
Gaining card advantage over your opponent by drawing cards is one of the most powerful effects in Magic. A shrine that does just that is an auto-add in any deck that wants to use shrines as a strategy.
Several EDH decks have a use for
But I don't know for sure if an MTGA format will affect paper prices at all. Only when people are building Historic decks for paper play it will increase paper demand. And I have no idea if that's happening. But seeing that
And since we don't mention Historic as a format often (since it seems to have little effect on paper prices) I would like to take this opportunity to share a nice gameplay video, that shows how a 5c Honden Control deck performs in Historic.
Splinter Twin $20.99 (+92.22%)
It is really becoming a tradition!
The possible unbanning of
Serra's Sanctum $190 (+13.32%)
As the season of brewing is continuing, there are also movements on the other side of the MTG market: reserved list cards. Currently, we see less RL cards at the top of our charts, but many are still trending up.
Being a land with a unique and powerful ability, it has always had a big price tag for a card that does not see much competitive play. In constructed, it sees a bit of play in Legacy Enchantress decks and some play in EDH decks. In EDH it is a trusted land for any deck that revolves around an enchantment/aura strategy.
But still, $199 is a very, very steep price tag for a card that sees little play in comparison to its price. And there you see the power of the Reserved List and the effect it has on the rarity and collectability of cards.
But that's not the only thing that matters! Compare
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.
