Quick post today but just wanted to give a brief update on Archangel of Thune. It seems to be hyped up and has currently hit $40 on SCG. As you can see below, the price has jumped since prerelease and could go even higher. While I’m not a big fan of the card, it may be possible that this card stays in the $40 range for a brief period.
If you think it’s worth investing in, then this is a good time to find it cheap online, otherwise I would probably flip it. It’s no Voice of Resurgence so I think it could drop with the rest of the set as most cards do after prerelease, unless it performs very well in the tournament scene.
This card did bring comparisons to Baneslayer Angel. Baneslayer was a monster in Standard when it came out and quickly reached the $60 price point for a while before being reprinted and surpassed by the Titans of M12. This card has some Baneslayer qualities but that may not be enough for it to be a game changer in Standard at the moment.
Either way, we will be keeping an eye on it to see how the card performs over the next few months.
