MTGO expansion set release, the bulk way. I love online set releases, don’t you? Of course you do. So does everyone else on MTGO. I think the feelings we get from the anticipation of a new set are one of the greatest aspects of our beloved game, both as a player and someone who likes […]
Hey everyone, and welcome to another edition of Whinston’s Whisdom on Quietspeculation.com. Today, I’m going to look ahead to the States and Champs tournaments on September 9th, and what cards you should be looking for. Also, we have the first installment of Pack to Power. No trades yet, but I’ll list out the pack and […]
The iron law of investment is that the greatest rewards come from taking the greatest risks. The science behind this is that if something is low-risk, more people will want it; they are unlikely to lose their money, and they stand to gain a little bit in the process. When you talk about loaning $10,000 […]
Quiet Speculation Submission (Matthew Sedlak) I was excited when I first discovered Quiet Speculation. A website devoted just to trading strategies was very exciting and a nice change of pace from the usual articles on the deck of the week, M11 limited, etc. Of course, I wasn’t the only person reading all these new articles […]
It’s that time again for another update to the Demand Matrix. What is the Demand Matrix you ask? Simply put it’s a way to mathematically define the relative popularity of the cards we know and love.

Greetings! My name is Jeff Corder and this is my first Magic related article. Value is a very broad topic. My intention here isn’t to cover everything (which would be impossible, even for me!) but rather to cover some of the personal situations that I feel are worthy of your attention and consideration.

Noah Whinston gives a clinic in trade evaluations, including a blockbuster that got him a booster box and more!
By this point, everyone and their dog has put out an article about Scars of Mirrodin cards. Rather than tell you for the tenth time that Wurmcoil Engine is good (it really, really is), I’m going to try and take my look at the new set in a different direction, and we have our first […]
I feel I’ve let you all down. Last week, I hinted that there might be a surprise forthcoming in this week’s article. Unfortunately, this surprise has not yet arrived, and so must be postponed until next week at the earliest. I know, I’m weeping too. With that said, I’ll try to make up for it […]
First-time QS contributor Stephen Moss discusses why networking is such an effective tool in this business, and how to go about doing it.
Remember how good Spikeshot Goblin was in Mirrodin block Limited? Well, his big brother is back and ready to dish out some pain.
