Weekly Winners 2020 - 46
This week seems a seamless continuation of the past weeks. It's all EDH that drives the markets. The Commander Legends spoilers are sinking in and people are busy brewing new decks.
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!

Official Release of PikaStocks
In our Weekly Winners 44 we teased an image of a logo with the text "Coming soon..." . Lots of people already guessed, based on the logo, what we were announcing. So before we get started on this week's Weekly Winners, we want to proudly announce the release of PikaStocks. A Pokemon TCG price tracker!
We noticed that the Pokemon TCG is gaining more traction lately and we received several messages and e-mails asking for a website that keeps track of these prices. For more information, please look at the announcement on PikaStocks itself! You can follow PikaStocks on Twitter and on Telegram.
Teferi's Veil $2.99 (+346.27%)
Since the COVID pandemic hit, we have covered many, many spikes in this article that were caused by EDH. Since big paper events and tournaments are not being held, the usual tournament results from Legacy, Modern and Standard are missing, and you can really see how much that affects the price movements of cards.
We have still seen no big market crash, or any other big changes to the magic markets. Even though many predicted that the end was nigh, when COVID reached Europe and the United States. Nothing much has happened. Except for an increase in trade for Reserved List cards and EDH.
About 40% of the new brews with
If you do, I'm afraid you need a short refresher on the rules concerning phasing. Cards phasing in and out of the battlefield do not trigger the enter the battlefield or leave the battlefield abilities on cards. With phasing, the cards stay in the same zone (in this case the battlefield) and are treated as if they don't exist. They are no longer targets, they can no longer be sacrificed or destroyed. Intuitively, one would say that if that is all true, a card must not be on the battlefield anymore. And that's why phasing is known to cause so much questions for judges. The card is still on the battlefield, but we treat it as if it was not there.

Normally we don't cover cards before or just after release. Pre-release prices are notoriously untrustworthy, much, much worse than even election polling. Some cards are incredibly overhyped, while others skyrocket after being totally undervalued.
But in this case we make an exception. It does not happen often that a card that is already possibly "overhyped", gains even more value. But
Most importantly, its market price and its AVG price are now almost the same. And that means that its current price is a realistic one. At first it seemed that we reached this point when the card was valued at $23, but it shot up more that $10 this week and the market price has matched.
Currently, it is listed as the #4 most valued card in the set. And it is by far the most expensive rare in
|Commander Legends||CardKingdom $29.99||TCGPlayer $34.86|
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.
