Did you know? Foil Deadeye Navigator, Scavenging Ooze

Did you know? Foil is $17.00! SCG is a little bullish on this, because the markup over TCG player is a little higher than usual. TCG mid is at 13.88. Once we passed the banned and restricted announcement, they  upped their price. Make no mistake; this card is very powerful in commander. Every enter the …

Revisiting Alara: Naya

NAYA                 Naya is the Shard without blue and black mana. Without the influence of blue’s domestication and black’s rampant death, Naya grew into a realm of unbound growth. Many of the lifeforms of the shard have grown to sizes all but unheard of on most other worlds, and you can’t throw a rock in …

Did you know? Foil Mana Confluence, Nykthos

Did you know? Foil from Journey into Nyx is down to $30.00! They were $50.00 when the set released. Now that people have had a chance to redeem some and fulfill demand, the price has adjusted. It’s also seeing little play right now after the pro tour, but I think once rotation comes along there …

Waste Not, Revisited

  I almost had to do a spit take the first time I cast Whispering Madness. Here’s the scenario. My opponent, playing Blue/White Control, is tapped out. I have a Lifebane Zombie and Waste Not in play, and have just untapped with four mana available, and my one-of Whispering Madness is in my three card …

Did you know? Foil Twilight Mire, Consecrated Sphinx

Did you know? Foil from Eventide is $70.00! Regular copies are $35 now, which is equally surprising. This card doesn’t even see that much play. It’s amazing how high these are considering the main contributor is supply rather than demand. This is a 1-of in modern BG variants, and otherwise sees play as a 1-of …

Did you know? Grave Pact, Howling Mine

Did you know? from Commander, Planechase, 8th, 9th, and 10th edition is $13.00! Oddly, the original one from Stronghold is a little lower coming in at $12.00. Did you notice how many sets this card is from? It’s been printed 6 times and is $13.00! That’s crazy! Let’s not give too much weight to those …

Did you know? Primalcrux, Dark Depths

Did you know? from Eventide is $16.00! I forgot that this card even existed. It’s used in commander, but the reason it went up so much is due to the 6 green devotion that it adds for use with Nykthos, Nylea, and just general Theros shenanigans. I suppose it’s possible that some casual players might …

Fine Gaming: Garruk and his Super Friends

The Standard that’ll soon be out the door has definitely had some mixed reactions: Some loved the slowed down pace with an emphasis on mono-color devotion and scrying. Others hated how some decks just had no bad match ups, specifically mono black. Who knows what Khans of Tarkir will bring, but that’s another deck for …

A Thoughtseizing Brew – Utilizing Waste Not

A Thoughtseizing Brew , the card designed by the Magic community. It has a bit of a ring to it, wouldn’t you say? To say that Waste Not has been a source of speculation and controversy among the Magic community is quite the understatement. In the deck above we see the card aligned with some …

Did you know? Foil Elesh Norn

Did you know? Foil from New Phyrexia is $70.00! Elesh New Phyrexia only rotated out of standard a few years ago. Back then, Elesh Norn was about $10 for regular copies and $20 for foil copies. This increase is pretty impressive in my opinion, but the increase took 4 years. I found this an easy …
