Weekly Winners (37)

11 Sep
by Arjen

Since Peter is out for the weekend in German wine country, I am going to try to take a swing at writing this week's Weekly Winners. A slow week in Magic finance. It is spoiler season again and the recent spoilers do have their effect on card prices already. Soonce again, we present you the cards that will be the talk of the town tonight.


#1 Sedge Sliver +207,3%

Sedge Sliver

While Sedge Sliver is already falling back, it shortly spiked to $15.00 this week because of the SCG Modern Open Cincinnati results. A Sliver deck, by Adam Bowman, reached top 8 with this decklist and running 3 Sedge Slivers mainboard.

Even though Sedge Sliver already went down to $8.39, it still means a price increase of over 200% since last week, making it our first weekly winner. The foil version of this card went from $7 to $39, and doesn’t seem to be experiencing the same drop, but rather remaining steady.

The expectation of this card is that it will come down some more. Probably not going back to its original price, but I would avoid this card at the moment, since it’s definitely a buyout. If not, we would also see a huge increase in the prices of other slivers being played in Adam’s deck.


#2 Jwari Shapeshifter +41,3%

Jwari Shapeshifter

Jwari Shapeshifter also was the #2 weekly winner of last week’s Weekly Winners, but it’s still slowly rising. I’m going to repeat what Peter said last week. The Battle for Zendikar spoilers are slowly rolling out, and we see a lot of new allies showing up. Some speculators thought it would be wise to buy out ally cards they deem good enough to become interesting for the eternal formats.

Anything can happen to this (and other allies cards). If we do get (very) powerful new allies in BFZ, $3 might be cheap for a card like this. But if the allies prove to be disappointing, the $3 value can never hold. Place your bets please.


#3 Hardened Scales +29,7%

Hardened Scales

Hardened Scales is slowly seeing some real price increases over the past weeks and seems to be climbing faster and faster. People are speculating it’s due to the recently spoiled Undergrowth Champion and the Magic Origins card Managorger Hydra. Some people seem to think this makes for a viable Standard strategy.

Also, the confirmation that Sylvan Scrying will be reprinted in Battle for Zendikar seems to be supporting this hypothesis.


#4 Sliver Hive +18,4%

Sliver Hive

Sliver Hive is slowly ticking up. Of course this also has everything to do with Adam Bowman’s Sliver deck, discussed above. Slivers have always been a casual all-star favorite, and this card is an auto include as 4-off in each and every one of them. I just can’t see this card staying at $3.60.

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.
