Hello, everyone and welcome to a new edition of the Daily Stock Watch! The rise of cards from the Reserved List hasn’t slowed down one bit, and this will most likely be the trend for the whole year until everything has been dried up, and people lose interest in buying anything from it. This makes it harder for the prices of other cards to increase, in my opinion, as people are focused more in joining the fray of these RL buyouts. To avoid the mishap going on there, I will probably stay away from featuring cards from that class, and focus more on the ones where we could gain more leverage financially. My card for today was hot on my list since last week, but I waited out a bit to see if this was just some hype brought about by the Commander Anthology Volume II release. It turns out that it was able to hold its ground, and dodging the reprint will only help its cause in the long run.
Commander players love a good combo inside their 100, but wouldn’t it be sweeter if your 100 focused on different combos around your general? This is the type of card that Mizzix of the Izmagnus is, as it just hit its all-time high of $8.49 a week ago, before dropping to a respectable $7.45 as of today. This is still a far cry from its bottom mark of $1.01 just a year ago when people failed to make something out of it since it was printed in Commander 2015. I was browsing a pretty neat list from one player who made his own list, and pretty much had a detailed explanation of how he plays with this card as his leader. Do note that this deck is almost creatureless! Here’s the deck list that I’m talking about:
Mizzix of the Izmagnus
The deck was pretty much built on a budget, but you can tell right off the bat that a lot of time was allotted by the creator in trying to make it work. Some upgrade for the lands and this deck is actually pretty decent if you ask me. I’m not saying that this well-thought list was the reason for the price jump, but the influx of more cards from recent sets are only bound to make these unique cards from Commander sets more powerful over time until they get reprinted. I think that the Mizzix is still a year or two removed from seeing another print run, so we could still make a profit out of it while it’s hot.
At the moment, you can still get Mizzix of the Izmagnus from TCGPlayer for anywhere between $6.41 to $7.45, but other stores such as Card Kingdom, StarCityGames, and ChannelFireball are all out of stock, and are expected to restock at the same price range as the ones that the TCGPlayer vendors are selling it for. I’m cool with picking up a few copies of the card for this price range, as there’s only one way but up for it in the coming months. Just make sure that you get them for the right price.
And that’s it for today’s edition of the Daily Stock Watch! See you again next time, as we check out a new card that should be on the go, or good enough for speculating.
