Today’s article subject spawned from a discussion that began in the QS Discord chat. One of our members was contemplating stepping away from the game for a while and wanted to know the best place to park his money and/or what to trade into. As expected, a lot of people immediately jumped to Power. The general […]
The holidays are in full swing and the new year is right around the corner. And as some of you may know, the stock market has been a bit shaky in the last month or so. But it seems Magic is still doing pretty well during this slightly volatile time. I think a good portion […]
Ultimate Masters is still in full bounce back mode, and the last World Magic Cup has come to a finish. Plus, some sweet Ravnica Allegiance spoilers have hit the market so there’s gonna be a nice mix of things to talk about again in this piece. Owing to the spoilers, this might be a little […]
Ultimate Masters has hit the market and there’s already been a lot of movement. The prices of the reprints dropped as they usually do when a set first hits the market. But it seems like the prices have started to rebound a lot quicker this time around. There’s a slight possibility they could drop again […]
Magic Online has a problem. A card value problem. In a recent Channel Fireball article, Florian Koch showed just how much card prices have fallen over the past few years: That’s right. To own a playset of the cheapest version of every Magic card ever printed on MTGO would have cost you roughly $28,000 in […]
This is the first article from my new series, MTG Questions. You might be familiar with the Hold ‘Em & Fold ‘Em series (rebranded as MTG Metagame Finance), which takes a tournament-oriented perspective. I decided to start this series to focus on more general aspects of MTG finance. The two series will work together, as when […]
Welcome back, folks. It’s been a while since I last wrote an article, in large part because I’ve been unwilling to make any financial moves on MTGO before reading the December 6th announcement about competitive play on Arena. What is announced there could have major ramifications for investing on MTGO, and so I’ve been very […]
Many people have been saying there’s been a little less movement regarding Magic finance during the past few weeks or months. Some people are saying there’s a slowdown. Others are saying it’s normal because the holidays are around the corner and players have less money to spend on Magic cards. Regardless, Magic continues to move […]
Hello, everyone and welcome to a new edition of the Daily Stock Watch! Pre-release weekend is near and everyone’s hyped for Assassin’s Trophy Guilds of Ravnica. The return of fair decks in Modern is coming as they say, so everyone who will be trying to take care of their prized possessions from the hottest thing […]
The printing of new commanders can increase demand for old cards that pair well with them. David looks at the four-color commanders to see what may be primed for a jump.
I have a lot to get through tonight because some jackass got ahold of the black deck and spoiled the entire thing, posting a picture of the decklist and pictures of all of the new cards. This really messes up spoiler season and is leaving me feel pretty deflated. Speculating and getting things revealed slowly […]
Today Jason Alt looks at Stoke the Flames and its unusual spike (for an uncommon) to $4. He tries to make sense of the card’s price in light of M15’s reception and issues with the new MTGO client.
AWWWWWWWWW YISS! I was remarking on Twitter that the white enchantment in this cycle didn’t really seem to fit. The Green, Red and Blue flash enchantments are all functional reprints of cards that benefit from flash because they were on cards that historically were balanced by the fact that your opponent would benefit from them […]
