Editor's note: Sylvain Lehoux is taking a three-week break from writing due to other commitments. In the meantime he's promised to keep us abreast of any changes to his portfolio via emails to the Quiet Speculation staff. We'll present these purchases/sales in a shortened form along with Sylvain's explanation so you don't miss a beat. Join us back on May 9 when he returns in full form!
Here is the link to the snapshot of the account as of Saturday April 16th.
More Khans of Tarkir full sets and 8 Fate Reforged full sets: I'm counting on redemption to lift up prices for KTK and FRF after their big drop linked to rotation out of Standard.
Mishra's Bauble: Coldsnap flashback drafts really lowered the price on this one. I didn't catch the absolute floor but considerably lowered my average buying price with the Baubles. This is a unique artifact in Modern and the ceiling is fairly high, so I pumped up my stocks here.
Kozilek's Return: This Oath of the Gatewatch mythic is a pretty nice board sweeper than should easily find a home in Standard ramp decks and potentially some decks in Modern as well. 5 tix is not cheap for a mythic but it could pay off quickly depending on what metagame Pro Tour Shadows over Innistrad brings. If the price goes down during SOI release events, as it seems it will, I'll be buying more copies soon.
Archangel of Tithes: After the recent spike, nothing has led me to believe it will get better for Archangel. Nor am I interested in waiting to find out if it will be played at PT SOI. In this regard I'm following my own advice from two weeks ago concerning spiking Standard positions---it's better to sell at a guaranteed profit than hold out for uncertain further gains.
Kytheon, Hero of Akros // Gideon, Battle-Forged: Similar to Archangel of Tithes. I sold into this recent initial spike and I'm not willing to wait for what could be next. I've been holding onto a lot of Magic Origins cards for many months now so I'm clearly not going to be too greedy on this one.
