Before I dive into the reasons for the spike, I'll give a bit of context on the way Wizards is adressing the popularity of Commander as a format in 2020. If you are knee deep into the format already, feel free to skip ahead.
Back in October 2019, Wizards announced that "big things are coming to Commander in 2020". In their article Wizards explains why they will be double downing on the format in 2020. There is a huge apetite for the format, players need reprints and the format is a portal for new players to learn the game. In cynical short: Commander is a cash cow, ready to be milked a bit more. But hey, if Wizards is making awesome new stuff, I have no problem buying that stuff!
As of Zendikar Rising, Wizards is printing Commander decks, alongside the regular product that will be added to Standard. They are replacing the Planeswalker decks added to other sets. These Commander decks have new products and reprints aimed at the format.
With that picture painted, let's get to the news.

With all the Reserved List cards trending up, relevant winners sometimes get buried. And
is not the most popular color combination in the Eternal formats, so
While many Reserved List cards are bought out and spiking to crazy heights,
On that point: many people have asked my why we don't cover all the cards from the Reserved List spiking. The reason is simple: there is no story to tell. People buy out the cards because they can with the goal to drive up the price. In most cases there is no demand for the cards whatsoever. And demand will most likely drop because of the price increase. Nobody was really interested in your proverbial 4/4, first strike, bands with other clerics, Legendary creature. And even less now that you need to pay $40 for a copy.
Instead, I'll keep getting you posted on the uptrending cards that matter.
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.
