Did you know? Foil Deadeye Navigator, Scavenging Ooze

Did you know? Foil Deadeye Navigator 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 battlefield  effect on a creature can be triggered for a blue and a colorless, and every time you use the ability you can soulbond with a different creature. Almost everything gets out of hand quickly. Just an Acidic Slime or Eternal Witness...

Did you know? Foil Mana Confluence, Nykthos

Did you know? Foil Mana Confluence 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 is a good chance it will see more play. If you were interested in picking these up, now is the time. The points everyone made at release still hold true: These are good in every format, they give all aggro decks more...

Did you know? Foil Twilight Mire, Consecrated Sphinx

Did you know? Foil Twilight Mire 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 in commander and sometimes cube. Can you imagine how much shocklands would be if they didn’t reprint them in Return to Ravnica and Gatecrash?!   Did you know? Foil Consecrated Sphinx from Mirrodin Beseiged is $50.00! I’m beginning to notice a pattern...

Did you know? Grave Pact, Howling Mine

Did you know? Grave Pact 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 sets though. None of them are recent, and we all know how the player base has exploded in the last 4 years. I’d be willing to bet that the number of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, which has only been printed once, has...

Did you know? Primalcrux, Dark Depths

Did you know? Primalcrux 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 be using this to brew in modern, but the green devotion decks I’ve seen are using Garruk Wildspeaker and Wistful Selkie to enable its gameplan.   Did you know? Foil Dark Depths from Coldsnap is an eye-opening $200.00! That is waaaay more than...
