Onto the Weekly Winners!
Radiate $9.70 (+96%)
Lets kick things off with a rare from
The card has a rather interesting price trajectory. Back in 2013 it only cost about $0.50, but has been steadily climbing right up until May 2022, where it was about $4, and then has been steadily on the decline since, only to sky rocket since the end of August. It's one of those cards that has been flying under the radar for some time, as it's a bit obscure with only a single printing.
It may not be an easy include in a lot of decks, but it has potential for plenty of three-card combo opportunities. And it seems that it's found a home in a new Commander deck.

The card seems to be included most often in decks around

|Tegwyll, Duke of Splendor
|Alela, Cunning Conqueror
|Errant and Giada
Please note: for our 'record low' we consider the price of the card over the past seven years. Many cards were even cheaper (a) decade(s) ago. Also note: some cards are still going down, and might be even cheaper pickups next week.
