Our BNG Prerelease Cheat Sheets Are Here!

If this is your first pre-release, we've got a handy article for you, written by Kelly Reid (who founded QS). You can find it here on Forbes.

First Impressions On The Price Lists

First, I haven't seen a list this low-value since Dragon's Maze. BNG is likely to be a lot of fun to draft, but just about all of the mechanics revolve around that. Beyond a banner Planeswalker and Xenagos, we've just got Brimaz to look forward to opening. I've got a feeling that Cat Power is going to be the Voice of Resurgence in this set - the card that stays high because the set has to be worth enough for MTGO redeemers to cash in on (that's a big topic, one I'll go into somewhere else).

If you don't need these cards this weekend, then you can safely wait for them to drop in price; a lot of them will. I expect any Temples that you open to trade swiftly - people want to put them into existing decks and want playsets. You'll stand to make great trades if you can trade off Temples to willing partners.

Douglas Linn

Doug Linn has been playing Magic since 1996 and has had a keen interest in Legacy and Modern. By keeping up closely with emerging trends in the field, Doug is able to predict what cards to buy and when to sell them for a substantial profit. Since the Eternal market follows a routine boom-bust cycle, the time to buy and sell short-term speculative investments is often a narrow window. Because Eternal cards often spike in value once people know why they are good, it is essential for a trader to be connected to the format to get great buys before anyone else. Outside of Magic, Doug is an attorney in the state of Ohio.  Doug is a founding member of Quiet Speculation, and brings with him a tremendous amount of business savvy.
