Weekly Winners 2021 - 06

12 Feb
by Arjen

Another strange and eventful week in the world of finance. Where you'd expect tons of cards to spike due to new brews, we mainly see a new hausse of reserved list cards being bought out. And also non-reserved list cards that happen to be MTG classics. In this week's article I tried to skip over the old cards and mainly focus on cards that seem to have a more organic growth, and one big loser.

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!


#1 Skyshroud Poacher $26.00 (+618%)

Skyshroud Poacher


This good old Human Rebel that finds elves jumped up from $3 to $34 and is now back down a bit to $26. The reason seems pretty obvious: there are a bunch of new elves in Kaldheim. Whenever a tribal gets some love in a set you always see older cards that have a synergy with this tribal go up. Yes, I'm looking at you Didgeridoo.

The card does not seem to have any use for competitive play, but rather casual Commander decks. Skyshroud Poacher not being an Elf itself may be a bit of a dealbreaker for several players, and green generally does not have a shortage of creature tutors, so to be honest I am not entirely sure how viable this card is and it probably cannot sustain this price point.

That being said, there is a really similar card in Nemesis for Goblins: Moggcatcher. This card currently also is on its all time high at $15.17. Being able to search for your Siege-Gang Commander or Muxus, Goblin Grandee is pretty fun. And red has far less options to tutor for creatures. But Moggcatcher has actually seen (some) play in Legacy mono-red Goblin Prison and Goblin Stompy decks. Because of this I cannot imagine that Skyshroud Poacher can stay at its current price point and will come down.

If people are interested in Moggcatcher and Skyshroud Poacher then it may be worth looking at Seahunter which is from the same cycle to tutor Merfolk.

Skyshroud Poacher CardKingdom $6.49 TCGPlayer $26.00
Seahunter CardKingdom $4.99 TCGPlayer $3.48
Moggcatcher CardKingdom $11.99 TCGPlayer $15.17


#2 Glamerdye $5.52 (+452%)



In our Weekly Winners 2021 - 03 from three weeks ago we discussed Whim of Volrath. The reason for this spike was because of the printing of Orvar, the All-Form in Kaldheim. The beauty about Whim of Volrath is that it is an recurable (buyback) instant spell that can target any permanent. Meaning that with Orvar you can make a copy of anything you like (including lands) and can create infinite mana with Peregrine Drake or Chromatic Orrery.

Glamerdye falls into the same category: you can target any permanent at instant speed and you can also keep casting it with retrace as long as you have a land card in your hand you can discard. These effects are solid includes into any Orvar Commander deck. A card I have barely seen move in price is Trait Doctoring which is also somewhat re-usable but at Sorcery speed. While definitely worse than the instants we just discussed, it shouldn't be too hard to find a spot for it in Orvar decks.

The spike did not entirely come out of the blue, since it was mentioned by Jason Alt from Brainstorm Brewery in his article and was his "Pick of the Week" in the last episode of Brainstorm Brewery.

We also saw a spike on Heaven's Gate which is able to target multiple creatures at once. Although it doesn't fit into Orvar's color identity it may be used in a deck with a different commander. The card being from Legends and not having any other prints makes it an easy buyout target. Keep in mind that this card comes from a cycle: Sea Kings' Blessing, Touch of Darkness, Dwarven Song, and Sylvan Paradise. They are however not on the reserved list. To be fair I am not confident that this spike of Heaven's Gate is because of Orvar, the All-Form.

#3 Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath $38 (-10.65%)

Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath


Uro definitely isn't a winner, but I did want to discuss him. As many people have noticed Uro was announced to be banned in the (near) future in several formats. The Secret Lair's Smitten Superdrop was announced by Wizards. One of the Secret Lairs is the "Showcase Kaldheim - Part 1" containing a unique art of Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath. The description of this box contained the following note:

(Note: We are planning an upcoming B&R announcement. In that announcement, we plan to ban Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath in Pioneer, Modern, and Historic. Additionally, we are continuing discussions about doing the same in Legacy. While we are still working internally on the larger B&R announcement for that week, we wanted to share this information ahead of this sale.)

As you can read Uro will be banned in Pioneer, Modern, and Historic. This obviously had an impact on the price. The average listing price for Uro went down from $43 to $38. Now this doesn't seem too exciting, but the market price went down from $41 to $17 which is a -58% change. I am not sure what the bottom will be for Uro, but people who bought into it at $40 are not happy, since they barely got to physically play with it because of the pandemic.

What also doesn't help the $40 price tag is that now you can get an Uro for $25 by buying the Secret Lair and you'll get Frost Titan and Primeval Titan with it as well. No-one is going to pay $40 for Uro at this time when you can get a far better deal from Wizards directly.

Arjen has been playing Magic since Ice Age and has mostly played the Legacy format. Ten years ago he founded MTGStocks because he and his friends wanted to buy Magic singles at the right time to play with.

More from Arjen:

Weekly Winners 2023 - 38

A week where most movement comes from Commander, and one potentially because of Pioneer and Standard.

Weekly Winners 2023 - 37

This week all cards have been moving because of Wilds of Eldraine, with some new additions for constructed eternal formats.

Weekly Winners 2023 - 36

Wilds of Eldraine released on Arena last week and will be released on paper today. And cards are moving this week because of it!

Weekly Winners 2023 - 35

I would have expected some more Wilds of Eldraine spikes by now, but it all seems pretty quiet, except for one card! Yet, the Lord of the Rings cards are still moving up!

Weekly Winners 2023 - 34

A slow week. It seems people were mainly waiting for the previews from Wilds of Eldraine and holding off on buying cards. With the entire set now revealed, I expect next week to have more spikes.

Weekly Winners 2023 - 33

This week we have a card moving up because of Modern, the Commander Masters Eldrazi precon is still stirring things up, and there's a Secret Lair Angels deck!

Weekly Winners 2023 - 32

The recent unbannings have made sure that these cards are moving up. Plus, we'll discuss a new Legacy archetype, and a card that seems to be pretty powerful in Commander.

Weekly Winners 2023 - 31

Prices are moving because of the Pro Tour and the upcoming Universes Beyond: Doctor Who set. We also managed to find a Commander card!

Weekly Winners 2023 - 30

Of course cards are moving because of Lord of the Rings, but we have some interesting cards from several constructed formats as well.
