Weekly Winners 2023 - 36

by Arjen

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

Like every week, just in time for FNM, I'll tell you about the Magic: the Gathering cards that'll be the talk of the town tonight! Come discuss this week's price movements with us on Discord.


The past few months we've been focusing on putting out more quality content, and I'd love to share the next few articles with you, since they're worth a read:

  • Harvey delves into the unique impact of the Secret Lair Series on MTG card prices, emphasizing how their artistic variations and limited availability create a distinct market value separate from traditional reprints in his latest iteration of The Big Things.
  • In History, Restapled Steve delves into the potential Commander staples from the Wilds of Eldraine set, highlighting cards like Lich-Knights' Conquest, Bramble Familiar, and Woodland Acolyte, and their financial implications in the MTG market.
  • Matt provides insights into the Wilds of Eldraine set, emphasizing its enchanting themes, unique design choices, and potential standout cards, while also speculating on the future value and playability of certain cards in the MTG universe in New Horizons.
  • Last, but not least, Jason dives into the potential of cards that synergize well with Eriette of the Charmed Apple, highlighting enchantment-focused strategies and speculating on the future value of cards in his Alt of the Deal.

Onto the Weekly Winners!

#1 Mistbind Clique $25.30 (+275%)

I always kinda enjoy seeing cards from Lorwyn go up. When this set was released I was in college, and playing a lot of Magic with my friends. A local store always fired up drafts in a cafe where mostly students came, and I drafted this set a lot. So when I see the more iconic cards from the set go up, I tend to get a little bit nostalgic.

Wilds of Eldraine has been fully previewed, and guess what? There are a lot of Faeries in the set! I am a bit surprised this card is spiking just now, while it was known for quite some time the Faerie type would make a big return. Mistbind Clique does have a rather unique ability: Champion a Faerie. It allows you to upgrade one permanent into another, representing a powerful creature taking the place of another to fight in its stead. However, when you Champion Mistbind Clique it can tap all lands target player controls. You can be like "So what, I'll tap my lands for mana in response," but there's another important ability on this Faerie: Flash. You can cast this at instant speed, meaning that, arguably, the best moment to play this card is during your opponent's upkeep. They can obviously still float their mana, but they have to spend it in their upkeep on abilities or spells at instant speed.

Mistbind Clique

Another important trait of this card is that it never received a proper reprint since its original one. It was printed in the Faerie, Faerie, Faerie Rad Secret Lair in February 2021. But besides that no supply has been added, making this card more easily manipulated pricewise.

#2 Ashcoat of the Shadow Swarm $49.00 (+38%)

Much the same way as our #1 winner, Ashcoat of the Shadow Swarm is moving up. Just like Faeries, there are plenty of new Rats present in the Wilds of Eldraine set. Ashcoat cares about other Rats whenever it attacks or blocks, buffing them all. But it can also get Rats back from the graveyard into your hand. No wonder it's a popular commander for this archetype.

With cards like Lord Skitter, Sewer King and Old Flitterfang appearing in Wilds of Eldraine, there are definitely some new toys for Rat decks. The last few years Rats have been returning more than they used to, with new commanders printed in Phyrexia: All Will Be One and in March of the Machine: The Aftermath. When I dove a little bit deeper in this creature type, I remembered the land Swarmyard and decided to look it up. Since Phyrexia: All Will Be One, this land has been going through a steady uptrend.

#3 Up the Beanstalk $2.82 (+442%)

It feels a bit odd to talk about a card that was officially released today. But outside of Wilds of Eldraine cards, it's been a bit quiet on the finance front. This also seems like one of the most underestimated cards from the set so far. Up the Beanstalk is an enchantment for that draws you a card when it enters the battlefield and when you cast a spell with mana value five or greater.

While results still have to prove this card's worth, it seems like it may be finding a home in a lot of decks in constructed formats. It's being tinkered with in Pioneer, Modern, and Legacy. In Pioneer and Legacy it seems like people are trying it with Yorion, Sky Nomad, since you can cast Up the Beanstalk quite early in your curve, drawing you a card. Then when you cast Yorion, the Beanstalk will trigger, drawing you a card. Then when Yorion enters the battlefield, you get to flicker Up the Beanstalk, drawing you a card. That's a lot of card advantage! In Pioneer these decks generally also play cards like Leyline Binding and Bring to Light, all drawing you cards. In Legacy we also see Forth Eorlingas! able to trigger the enchantment.

Yorion isn't legal in Modern, but the Elemental Incarnations are really popular there. Solitude and Fury, for example, are already played a lot, and they draw you extra cards with the Beanstalk in play. Currently the card draw of choice in Modern is The One Ring, but people expect this card to be banned in the format sooner or later. It may take until then before Up the Beanstalk will see more play in the format.
