Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Nexus of Fate Bridge from Below Vedalken Archmage

This week everything revolves around Pro Tour 25th Anniversary, and thanks to the team format we've got news in Standard, Modern, and even Commander. As far as Standard, the M19 Buy-A-Box promo Nexus of Fate had its breakout performance taking infinite turns and getting flawless victories, and as a result, doubled from around $20 to near $40. Moving forward it's hard to say what will happen with the card. Being a Buy-A-Box promo means that not much supply is still entering the market, so we're in uncharted territory. Keep an eye on Standard events moving forward: if the deck continue to perform the price could continue to rise as there just aren't many copies available compared to the typical Standard mythic.

In Modern, the two big winners were Vengevine and Bridge from Below, both part of the Stitcher's Supplier-fueled BR Vengevine deck. Each increased between 200% and 300% leaving Bridge from Below at between $30 and $40 depending on the printing and Vengevine at $70. Meanwhile, Gravecrawler is also part of the deck and shot up 57% to $8. These type of Pro Tour spikes don't usually last, so it's probably best to sell into the hype.

Finally, we're still getting some Commander 2018 movement as well. Vedalken Archmage, a perfect upgrade for the Saheeli, the Gifted Artifact deck, increased 61% to $9 and Starfield of Nyx, a great addition to Estrid, the Masked's Enchantment deck nearly tripled up to $12. While these casual price increases are more likely to stick than the Pro Tour spikes, in the long term, it will still depend on just how many players are building around the themes of Commander 2018.
