Bloodspore Thrinax was basically a bulk rare at the time of its release, though it has seen a ton of price movement in the wake of the printing of Atraxa, Praetor's Voice. Bloodspore Thrinax was basically a bulk rare at the beginning of the week, and currently you would be lucky to find a copy for under $5.
Given that this card was only released in a Commander deck, most copies are sitting in the trade binder of people who purchased said deck, so there isn't a lot most of us can do with this information. Though if this is the sort of card players are interested, I'm inclined to believe that other devour cards and cards with the evolve mechanic are worth exploring. Dragon Broodmother is a long time casual favorite that could see some growth. I think that Gyre Sage is an interesting penny stock. If Astral Cornucopia wasn't in Commander 2016 I might be looking that way, though Gyre Sage does much the same thing.
There are plenty of non-foils out there due the card being from Gatecrash, though we're talking about Commander specs. I like picking up some foil copies of this card, which is both a potentially large creature and mana generator. I'm no Commander genius, but both of those things seem to be what the format is about.

What a way to start the day. I always read quiet speculation’s articles first thing in the morning. What a pleasent surprise to see bloodspore thrinax is already on the move. I had purchased 18 playset at $2.49 a set and put them in my long-term spec binder. I had no idea that I would be pulling them out so quick.
We’re better than coffee. When was the last time coffee made you money?
Other than SBUX stock? 😛
One thing to note is that in some communities Commander players don’t go for foils. This is especially true in the EU. Might be totally different in certain areas of the states. I’d say the nonfoil copies of Gyre Sage are the play, not the foils
I think it’s going to take longer to see movement given the relative supply, though this is a good point.
Thanks for the heads up on this one, there’s always a site or two that still has them underpriced. 🙂 ABU for $1.89.
Maybe Contagion Engine worth a look in your next Stock Watch?
Atraxa does not have red in her color identity, so any growth on Dragon Broodmother would be unrelated.
