  1. Nice buys. Kithkin, Faeries, and the lands are all great buys. The sable stag of course will be good too for the anti faeries. I wouldnt have bothered with the 9th edition and future site stuff but I am sure it will go up. What happens to depths from here and ravnica duals???

  2. I think Living End might be a decent buy too. Its just around 1 Tix and with Hypergenesis banned, people may move to Living End. Heck possibly even Restore Balance at .25 tix. PS Dunno why my comment says VSRelms…

  3. I thought QS was an pricing analysis site? All I see is a list of prices with no commentary. Perhaps run a comparison script against the blackerlotus db? Or am I missing something (presumably to do with the extended changes)?

  4. KBR, what are your thoughts on the new Extended format, and the announcement of the big rotation coming? I mean from a financial viewpoint… Would really like to hear what you have to say about it.

  5. Buying filter lands and reflecting pool is a great idea. Everything with the word faerie printed on it is/was a safe buy.I would not invest in time spiral block cards sinds those will all rotate out in september. I don't expect extended ptq's before scars of mirrodin comes out and that is when the prices will spike.

  6. Picked up 4x Reflecting Pools and a Mutavault at about 5 apiece in trades with a dealer this weekend. The cards that eluded me during Standard of the time just fell into my lap and are going to shoot up 200-300% in a few months.

  7. I'm writing up a big analysis of this for MTGO Academy which will publish tonight. That's why I have stayed mum on it for the week. Trust me, I have my reasons for doing everything.So far Bitterblossom was my biggest gainer by $, but Windbrisk Heights by %.

  8. I personally bought 4x Secluded Glen and Cryptic Command because the other cards I was looking for were already adjusted to Underextended and the value just didn't seem to be there.Hopefully I can get some Mutavault and Reflecting Pools.

  9. Do you have a buddylist full of bots that you check for these when you think prices are going to change rapidly? Im also wondering, because If I could have found cards @ these prices on friday I would have alot more net value today.

  10. Asymptotic: This list basically tells you what to buy if you want to invest and make some money.I've personally invested in 6x Cryptic Command, 4x Reflecting Pool, and 7x Secluded Glen.
