Weekly Winners 2022 - 41
We did it! We managed to have a week where we found three winners that aren't (necessarily) going up because of Commander. The past few weeks we have seen some Banned and Restricted announcements relating to Pauper, Modern, and Standard and because of this prices are moving. But we also have a card spiking because of the
I returned from my holiday last week, and gosh, was it amazing! Thanks to everyone reaching out and offering me advise or inviting me to their games of Magic. I wish I could have joined any, but our schedule was so freakishly packed. However, I did return with a more clear mind and some renewed inspiration to get stuff done. So this week some improvements have been made. We are also working on some new features for users, and for Premium users as well!
E-mail on new article
Users can now opt-in to receive an e-mail when a new article is posted on MTGStocks. I have opted existing users out of this, because I did not want to start spamming people where they have not asked for it. If you have an account and you want these notifications in your mailbox, you can go to your e-mail preferences and enable it. If you create a new MTGStocks account, it is enabled for you by default.
New Interests filter
People have been asking for a filter that filters out card that have not been released yet, so a while back I added it. But people have also been asking for a way to filter out promos for example. I decided to take it a little step further and be more future-proof. You can now filter you interest based on set types, meaning you can choose if you want to see "Promos" or "Core set" cards. Or maybe you are not interested in the "Masterpieces". Hopefully this makes life a little bit more easy for all of you.
New Sealed Products filter
The Sealed Products has been a bit cluttered and no good way to quickly find something we introduce a quick filter where you can type the name of a set or the name of a product. For example, you could type "Booster Box" and you would only see products that match that name.
You guys always find ways to break the website, and we are happy to track them down and fix them. Don't be afraid to report them by e-mailing us or using the "Feedback" button in the top right.
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.
Earthbind $5.22 (+904%)
Well, here is a card that is quite unplayable and hasn't been reprinted since
Beta Edition was released in October 1993 and a lot has changed in the world, in Magic, and the community. Because of this some artworks are no longer considered socially accepted. Because of this Wizards decided to leave several cards out of the
While Wizards has not given an official reason for the absence of these cards from
So much for the intro. Let's talk about prices. This card used to sell for below a dollar in Revised, but now costs over $5. It becomes even more extreme when we look at the graphs of Alpha, Beta, International Edition, and the Collectors Edition. Beta went from $50 to $500. Because Wizards seems unwilling to print this card again with its current art, people feel this may be an "alternate version" of the reserved list and try to purchase this card with this particular art.

This is an uncommon from
On September 19th Wizards banned four cards in Pauper:
But... How can an uncommon be legal in Pauper? This has to do with it being moved to Common in the MTGO Masters Edition II set.

Often when cards like this are printed, and you have to flip your library until you find a card that matches whatever it is looking for (in this case an artifact or creature), people will build their decks around this and make sure that the only card worth hitting matches these limitations. In this case players will only put creatures or artifacts in the deck worth hitting to make sure that whenever they resolve
