Weekly Winners (41)

09 Oct
by Arjen

Since Peter is away for the weekend, I've taken the liberty the write up this week's weekly winners. A bit later than expected today, but nonetheless, here it is. Sufficiently has happened this week and hopefully in time for the FNM. So, once again, I present you the cards that will be the talk of the town tonight.


#1 Storm World +4379.5% ($447.50)

Storm World

+4379.5% is an unbelievable high percentage for a card to increase with. About a week ago, this Legends rare was a $10 card and is now sitting at almost $450. It even briefly rose to $800. Now what happened that a card like this can spike this much: buyout. The unbanning of Black Vise last week, which we also discussed in last week's Weekly Winners, is the main reason that Storm World spiked. It basically does the same as The Rack, but to all players. Since Black Vise got unbanned, you could speculate that there are now more cards in Legacy to punish opponents for playing conservative and for quickly emptying their hand.

I think we could all agree that this card does not warrant a price tag this high. It simply got bought out on a speculation. There are several other examples of Legends rares that suddenly spiked, just like Field of Dreams did last week.


#2 Atarka's Command +108.0% ($14.00)

Atarka's Command

Atarka's Command rose thanks to Briand DeMars's deck, who took first place in the SCG Standard Open this weekend, playing this card as 4-off. After winning, the card quickly spiked to $17, and is already settling down to $14. If you have any of these card lying around, I would strongly advise you to unload them now they're hot. Simply, because I don't see if being played in an eternal format, other than Modern, and thus don't see it going any higher than its current price.

Once the card rotates out, I expect the price to drop.


#3 Dromoka's Command +42.6% ($4.99)

Dromoka's Command

Dromoka's Command is being played in Standard Abzan and, just like its "sibling" Atarka's Command very cheap to cast for only 2 mana with several modes you can cast it for. The funny thing is that I don't actually see a lot discussion about this card. After the release of Dragons of Tarkir, the card was a $5 card and quickly rose to over $9. After that, it steadily came down again. Last week, we've seen an increase in price of this card again, slowly climbing up. If you can find a few cheap ones, I would certainly pick them up, but don't sit on them for too long. They do see some fringe play in Modern, but I don't see any long future for this card.


#4 Jace, Vryn's Prodigy +39.9% ($69.95)

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy

I basically made Jace, Vryn's Prodigy the #4 Weekly Winner, because of the "low" percentage it rose, but I Jace is one of the most interesting cards in mtg finance if you ask me. It sees a lot of play in Standard, but also is being played and experimented with in both Modern and Legacy. 

In Legacy, we see Jace appearing in Reanimator decks, where it functions as way to bin a fatty to the graveyard. After Jace sparks, it can be used to flash back a reanimate spell for example. In Legacy, it's quite easy to get 4 cards in the graveyard, activating Jace and binning the 5th.

Personally, I don't think that Jace, Vryn's Prodigy will go any higher than $80. Not even sure if it's going to reach that price at all, but if he does, it will probably be its peak. I do think the card is powerful enough to stay in eternal formats. Also, planeswalkers are always hot.

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.
