Hello, everyone and welcome to a new edition of the Daily Stock Watch! I've refrained a bit from writing about cards that are moving financially due to Legacy or Commander demand (I'm talking to you, Fiery Confluence) but today, I'll be talking about one that has been moving upwards due to its set's "maturity". Modern has been the hottest format finance-wise, but there is no shortage of action in other formats, particularly from cards that have been only printed once in the entirety of the game. Today's card is not part of the Reserved List but it belongs to that special league of cards that have only been printed in a Commander-related product.
Fiery Confluence was the latest heavy gainer from this long line of spells from a Commander set, and Mizzix's Mastery just joined the fray. Today, it reached its all-time high of $11.21 and it should continue to trend upwards as supplies continue to run low in the market. It's a card that works best in a synergy-heavy deck full of spells that has a "win-now" concept, and you could see in this deck how it works.
It's clearly your usual OmniTell list on first glance, and it adds the power of Mizzix's Mastery off the board as an extra copy of Show and Tell or any other spells in the deck that it might need at the time that you cast it. I'm not really Legacy-savvy, so I might be missing out on extra details here (feel free to say your mind on the comments section). Nonetheless, I see card that's of this casting cost as a bit too costly for some deck that relies on its big spell to win games, but to see one in Legacy where it's blue-based doesn't surprise me now. It's probably better in a Commander deck as there will be tons of targets for it but then again, you probably know better than me when it comes to shenanigans and synergies. I'm sure that there's more to it than just lack of supply that drives its price upwards.
Above are cards from C15 that are at least $5 or higher based on multiple online store prices. I think it's safe to assume that most, if not all of these cards, will continue to see price gains in the foreseeable future. Mizzix's Mastery will possibly see some fringe Legacy play in the future, so it would be hard to bet against it in the long run. Although Commander 2018 is just right around the corner, it's very unlikely that there will be a massive reprint of cards from older sets in a new release. It should be safe to say that you could purchase your copies of our featured card for usage purposes, but I'm not really too keen on getting lots of it to include in my specs bin.
At the moment, you could find copies of Mizzix's Mastery via StarCityGames, Card Kingdom, and TCGPlayer for anywhere between $7.99 up to $11.21. ChannelFireball is out of stock of the item, and you could expect Card Kingdom to follow suit due to its low supply count and lower selling price. There are no foil copies of this card so it's possible that we see one in the future in a newer set. For now, I'd recommend that you get copies that are still available below $7, and wait out a bit till the ones in the major online stores are all sold out. A price spike for it is definitely just around the corner.
And that’s it for today's edition of the Daily Stock Watch! See you again next time, as we continue to speculate on cards that might be on the rise, or try to get rid of the ones that are at risk of losing value.
