A Penny Saved, a Titan Earned
Hello again everyone, it’s the Penny Pincher, back to share with you some of the things you can find in our Premium areas, and inform you of some cards that are settled in nicely in the $1 to $5 range. Every month I scour our back halls and bring you the cards I think are the best. So without further ado, and before someone asks me what I’m doing back here, let's get started!
This is one versatile card. You can spend either green or red for its mana cost, or a combination thereof, and as long as you can protect it, you can slam out spells that can't be countered for just one red or green mana! The other nice detail about this one is that its original printing is just about a dollar more than the
Trying to get into Modern but don’t know exactly how to get in on a budget? What I’ve found is that it’s pretty simple to take any of the Primetime builds, cheapen your mana base and remove redundant creatures, and boom, you have a functioning Modern deck. This version of Primeval Titan even helps add to that a small amount by being cheaper than every other printing (even if only by a little) so it’s even less of a strain on your budget! Coming in at just under five dollars, this card is good for the player for a quick in, as well as for the collector as its prices across all versions retain roughly the same price, showing staying power. I look forward to every new player I can expect to see at my next Modern event from this info! Just be careful, I’m turn-two infect, and no matter the degeneracy of my deck, I’m going to stay that way!
I like Unwinding Clock for what it does, but also for how it and other cards from
Now normally that would be the end of my divulging company secrets, but I found this one on my own and it isn’t in our Penny Stocks Premium section, so I figured no harm, no foul. Soul of Windgrace is a land-matters card that is good in both Landfall decks, recursion decks, or even just in decks heavy on fetch lands. This one isn’t on our radar here behind the curtain because it was in a bit of a tailspin, but for the past three months it has held on pretty well at just over a dollar. So I decided to showcase it here in case you are in need of its versatility, have a dollar to waste on a card for your portfolio, or simply believe it won’t be long before we have a set that is Landfall-heavy (again). In any case, this one shouldn’t be too hard to pick up.

I see the office lights coming on so I’m going to have to run now, but if you don’t want to wait a month for my next article on this subject, I suggest you head up to the top of this page and click the link to become a Premium member. It isn’t just cheap cards and a sneaker office worker back here. There is plenty to keep your investments sound with charting, tracking, and useful information to make the commitment worthwhile. I’ll see you soon. And remember, always say please when asking for board info, never give out game state info you don’t have to, and always, ALWAYS be a good guest when at a friend’s Magic event. Sorry about the vase Steve, I’m sure you’ll find something else from the Ming Dynasty! Until later!
