Did you know? The following two JS most surprised by how of this
A foil unhinged Island is $80.00! Besides Guru lands, this is the premium basic land to own. Basic lands never go out of style. Most decks run at least a few, and owning one of these never seems to go out of style. Non foil copies are up to $10.00. They seem to go up $1.00 – $2.00 every year. Every time I have had these in my binder, they would move within a few weeks. Having highly desirable cards in your trade binder is always a good thing, and establishing your book as one that always has good stuff in it is a good way to become the go-to guy for trades.

One of the foil full art islands from Zendikar is $35.00! Say what?! Holy cow! These things were $10 last time I checked! The island that I’m referring to is #236; the one that has the water spout on it. The other 3 islands range from $20.00 to $25.00. I can picture these being traded at $2 – $5 when they were being drafted. Non foil copies of #236 are $2.50, while the other 3 are just $0.50. Art is of huge importance to magic players.
I don’t know about you, but the next time full art lands come out, I’m going to take them very seriously. Find the best art according to popular opinion and go as deep as you can.
