After a long hiatus the QS Cast has returned with a new panel of hosts: Chaz Volpe, Corbin Hosler, and Tarkan Dospil continue on with where the cast left off and in this episode they discuss the following:
Masterpiece Series: Kaladesh Inventions
Explained by Mark Rosewater here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/making-magic/masterpiece-series-2016-09-12
- Is the financial aspect of Magic “dead”?
- How can one evolve with the Magic market?
- Contrary to many debates – this is a huge win for the players and accessibility.
- “Penny Stocks,” EDH considerations, and more!
Cyclical cycles such as the "3-4 year" stash of Commander cards likely stay intact. A case study for Expedition sets after a few years will be important to watch. Specific cards we mentioned: Dragonmaster Outcast, Felidar Sovereign, and Omnath, Locus of Rage.
More emphasis on the "penny stock" aspect that we talked about in previous casts. Don't focus on the cards like Sylvan Advocate which is essentially at ceiling cap due to Expeditions (it would normally be a great card to consider). Specific cards to take note on: Eldrazi Mimic, Drowner of Hope, Matter Reshaper.
A general "wait and see" approach on Masterpiece Series, much like Expeditions - this is a multi-year hold. Not a 6-month flip.
As always, please comment and leave questions for us to address on the next cast! We will be making QS Insider questions a priority, and we want to know what you want covered.
Enjoy! We’re glad to be back.
