Hello and welcome! We’ve got another round of those handy cheat-sheets to print out for the prerelease this weekend. I’ve had people request both alphabetized ones and price-ranked ones, so I went ahead and made two versions. Pick the one you like more or print both of them out. It looks like there aren’t many expensive cards in this set, but bear in mind that it’s a smaller one – only 166 cards.
The set’s price has to be at least a certain minimum (and we internally put that at about $140). MTGO Redeemers make the markets for paper cards in some ways. The previous two sets had the shocklands to keep prices down across the board (and while DGM has them in the land slot, we can’t quite count on that for pricing the set). I see Voice of Resurgence staying at $20 or jumping up to $40 if it’s played. The set needs a few banner cards to keep prices up for redeemers. In other words, if you don’t have a lot of $10 cards around, you’ll have some $40 cards instead.
Have a great time at your prerelease this weekend, and happy trading! There are a lot of newer and inexperienced players at prereleases, so be a Good Guy and help them get good trades. What’s good for your store is good for you, too.
DGM Cheat Sheet: Price-Ordered / Alphabetized
By now you’ve probably used our Trader Tools, located at MTG.GG. It’s a great piece of software that’s saved many hours and earned our members tends of thousands of extra value. We’re always trying to add more value to the Insider package, making sure our subscribers are always getting the most for their money.
Though it’s not quite ready for the prime-time yet, we just had to release it in time for the pre-release. There are probably bugs, and there are still a load of features and tweaks that we will continue to make, but we thought it would be better to give our members access as soon as we felt the site could support it. Just like the original TT, you can still use this software without being an Insider member, but you’ll miss out on the real powerhouse features.
TT2 will be the most advanced Magic card price tool you’ve ever used. And it’s only getting better. Check it out now.
Insider members get access to:
- Full set buylists, so you can see what every card in a Magic set buylists for
- Your own custom lists so you can track inventory, decks, want-lists and more.
- A one-page portal to our Insider chatroom, articles, and forums and messaging.
- A blazingly fast search that will show you prices before you’ve finished even typing. It’s seriously cool.
If you’re not an Insider, you can still look up any card in Magic and see its median selling price in stores, what the highest buy price is, and what the difference between the two numbers is (“the spread”).
It’s still in Beta testing. We’ve added a “bug report” feature, so blow that thing up with your comments. We couldn’t hold off on getting this out any later because we wanted everyone to have it for DGM Prerelease weekend. It’s not a finished product but it’s still got insane functionality to it. I love being able to save a list of all my bulk rares and watch the list change in value over time. Pretty cool stuff!
The mtg.gg shortlink still goes to the stable Trader Tools you’re used to. We’ll move it to the new version when we’ve squashed some more bugs.
