Weekly Update (Dec 11): Atlazan, Aether Revolt Planeswalkers

Atlazan — An Atlantean Plane?


A post on /r/magicTCG revealed this image of the next two blocks making waves on the internet, apparently grabbed from a Magic: the Gathering survey. We already know of the upcoming Egyptian-inspired set Amonkhet, but appears we're going to Atlazan next, which looks to be a mashup of Atlantean and Mesoamerican mythology.Read more

Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Panharmonicon Heart of Kiran Treasure Chest

In Standard, the biggest financial news this week comes from last week's GP Denver which saw the break out of Panharmonicon (up 17% to $4.41) in the tournament scene and the resurgence of Aetherworks Marvel (up 21% to $7.91). Perhaps the most appealing part of both of these cards is they should only get better as future sets are released. Panharmonicon will be a casual/Commander staple from now until the end of time, and Aetherworks Marvel should be even better with more energy support in Aether Revolt. While they could drop from their current spike, the future of both cards seems bright.

Speaking of Aether Revolt, we got some early spoilers this week, and like usual, all of the cards we've seen so far are extremely overpriced. If Heart of Kiran or Ajani Unyielding were dropped into any other Masterpiece set, they'd be fighting for the title of most expensive mythic in the set. As such, just take a deep breath, wait for the rest of the set to be reveled, and pick up these cards for something like half of their current price once the set is released.

Finally, on Magic Online, we are about a month into Treasure Chests being tradable, and at least so far, this change has been a boon for constructed players. While this could change in the future (if Treasure Chests are tweaked again), right now the change to Treasure Chests has resulted in a significant prize increase for constructed events. The economy has recovered, and while some extremely low supply cards are down a bit in price, the influx of supply hasn't crashed the market. While untradable Treasure Chests were horrible, now that they are tradable they appear to be a great thing for Magic Online, and could actually be a calling card for getting new players onto the program. If you've been thinking about getting into constructed on Magic Online, now is the perfect time to take the plunge.
