Weekly Winners 2022 - 47
We see some stuff moving, and this week we found two cards that have done so because of Legacy, and several because of Commander. This week we had to bundle a few cards together since they went up for the exact same reason, so while I have still chosen three cards to focus on, I had to show off some other spikes as well. Interesting week, and for the cards that have gone up through Legacy, I am especially interested in how these prices will move in the future.
Where Are They Now?
Last week Ryan started writing a new series called "Where Are They Now?" which is a series born because of popular demand. As you are reading the current article, we talk every week about which cards have gone up, but users have been asking what happens after the spike. This brand new series will focus on cards that have been discussed in this month a year prior. Which cards retained their value and which card dwindled down after their initial spike? Go read Ryan's explanation! The first iteration can be found at https://www.mtgstocks.com/news/4031-where-are-they-now-november.

Seasoned Dungeoneer $9.49 (+562%)
Let's start with discussing two cards at the same time, because both
When a player takes the initiative, they will retain the initiative until another player's creature deals combat damage to them, at which point the creature's controller takes the initiative. Whenever a player takes the initiative, or at the beginning of your upkeep where you have the initiative, that player ventures into Undercity. There are some nuances here with other dungeons, but those are not really relevant now.
The thing with Undercity is that it immediately lets you search up a basic land, and the next turn lets you buff a creature. If that creature is your
But, and this is something to remember, what we all already know: Legacy does not drive prices and the format is dead! /s

Cryptothrall $9.25 (+363%)
This rare from Warhammer 40K can be found in the Necron Dynasties commander deck and has quickly become popular. This 4-mana 3/3 gives all other artifact creatures hexproof, and who does not hate their creatures being removed by those pesky opponents? This creature will make sure that the other creatures are a little bit more safe.
And while we are discussing multiple cards at the same time, let us also take a look at
