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.
Sig often tracks the market on expensive rare cards, such as those on the Reserved List. But sometimes, true underlying market trends can be identified by examining commons and uncommons. This week Sig flags a couple noteworthy trends by doing just that!
When spoiler season started, the community panned the Double Masters for having underwhelming reprints. Since the rocky start higher-value cards have been spoiled, increasing the set’s EV. This week Sig looks at the numbers, making his initial judgment of the set.

Basic lands are worth more than many realize—until recently Adam included. Today he tells the story of how he learned he was sitting on a gold mine in bulk.
A certain class of cards keeps appearing on MTG Stocks: old foils. But are these moves for real, or are they artifacts of the system? This week Sig investigates.

Thank you to everyone for all the feedback on my first article. I hope this one is even better. I originally drafted this article on Thursday, July 12 and wanted to get this out to you before the weekend. Now we’ve seen two copies of Sneak & Show in the top of SCG Worcester. But […]
