We are making a new Web series and need your help

Roxie Cards is proud to announce a new project that we are working on for the new year (actually, there is another project but we can’t reveal that one just yet) called On The Play.

The value of Dragons of Tarkir

We are about a month in from playing with the new cards from Dargons of Tarkir (if you count the prerelease), and with a Pro Tour and a few Grand Prix events that have passed, it’s now a good time to see what cards are performing financially from the new set.

It is currently sitting...
