Doug Linn

Doug Linn has been playing Magic since 1996 and has had a keen interest in Legacy since its “reboot.” By keeping up closely with emerging trends in the field, Doug is able to predict what Legacy cards to buy and when to sell them for a substantial profit. Since the Eternal market follows a routine boom-bust cycle, the time to buy and sell short-term speculative investments is often a narrow window. For example, capitalizing on the recent printing of the Eldrazi, Doug made smart buys on Eureka and Sneak Attack, predicting that people would utilize both cards to play the large monsters at a low cost. Because Legacy cards often spike in value once people know why they are good, it is essential for a trader to be connected to the format to get great buys before anyone else.

Each week, Doug delivers smart tips on cards, as well as what to look for in up-and-coming hyped cards to determine if they are worth it, alongside general advice on when to properly buy and sell cards.  After finishing up his law degree at Indiana University in 2010, Doug has moved to Ohio.  Doug is a founding member of Quiet Speculation, and brings with him a tremendous amount of business savvy. In his spare time, Doug gardens when the weather is nice and 80% of conversations with him are likely to involve food.
