What started as an activity to lift Sig’s spirits this holiday season has evolved into a valuable lesson in MTG finance. This week he shares four valuable takeaways from his MTG advent calendar as he passes the halfway point.
The new set means rotation, and that means picking up staples on the cheap. David looks at his current picks for the ex-Standard cards with the most potential.
Rotation brings price dips, which means the time is ripe for buying. Brian looks at the best cards to pick up right now from the rotating blocks BFZ and SOI.
The makeup of current Standard can tell us a lot about what to expect come rotation. Guillaume looks ahead to consider which decks will survive intact or perish horribly.
As rotation nears, we all need to be conscious of the opportunities on cards departing Standard. Jim looks at some likely slow gainers for Commander.
At first glance, speculators appeared to profit on breakout cards from Pro Tour Kaladesh. A deeper look, focusing on more realistic scenarios, reveals a different picture.
Zendikar Expeditions had a profound impact on card prices, and now they’ll be in every set with the Masterpiece Series. Sig discusses what this means for the future of Standard MTG finance.
The plane of Zendikar might be devastated, but the cards are priced to move. Brian looks at ten cards from BFZ block to pick up in anticipation of Kaladesh.
Trying to predict the next big breakout card (or dud)? Read on for an infographic of the cards from BFZ that underwent the biggest price shifts since release.
Discrepancies between different versions of the same card can tell us a lot about their future. Today David looks at Expedition prices and compares them to the original foils.
As part of compiling our OGW cheatsheet, I computed the cards in BFZ that gained and lost value since the prerelease. Shocking nobody, the prices fell a lot. Here’s the data on the set.
Battle for Zendikar has disappointed overall but it may just be lacking sufficient support. Brian looks at undervalued cards that may begin to make their mark with the release of Oath.
Ryan compares Battle for Zendikar to Khans to get an idea of its future growth, and highlights the BFZ rares that represent the best potential as pickups.
