Stock Watch- Metallurgic Summonings

While I've had some sweats against Electrostatic Pummeler decks on MTGO, I've handily defeated all of my foes on Metallurgic Summonings. Even still, the SaffronOlive effect is causing a spike in the five mana enchantment.

While I do think there is merit to both Dynavolt Tower and Torrential Gearhulk in creature-light decks, I'm convinced that Metallurgic Summonings should only be played in small numbers, if at all. The Gearhulk decks are already quite capable of taking over games without having to play a five mana spell that does nothing the turn you cast it, and as such including the card in your deck strikes me as a significant liability.

At the current $8 price tag, I would be enticed to sell into the hype. It wouldn't be the worst move to dig for cheaper copies to try and move, though I firmly believe the card is currently over-hyped for Standard play. Metallurgic Summonings is not a card that I expect to have a stellar Pro Tour weekend.

One thought on “Stock Watch- Metallurgic Summonings

  1. pretty sure this spiked when budget deck on goldfish was released and casuals/newbie/fnm people jump on the bandwagon…i personally think its a great time to sell and pick up again when it crashes and people are over the combo or realize that matches on budget magic are not necessarily indicative of meta or competitive play….
    budget magic is a great time to jump on spikes, and make sum tix from the people crying that the cards are double the price, when they are the ones that cause the spike haha

    anyways…sell sell sell 😀
