Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Cavern of Souls Rapid Hybridization Underground Sea

This week, the biggest finance news is once against Ultimate Masters. Supply is running dry much quicker than it did with either Iconic Masters or 25th Masters; both the local game stores and big box stores in my area are sold out or nearly sold out. Perhaps in part because the set is good, and in part because supply is lower than it was for past Masters sets. As a result, the prices of some of the most in-demand cards in the set have already started to stabilize. It might be worth picking up the cards you need sooner rather than later.

The biggest gainer in Modern this week was the Commander 2015 printing of Rapid Hybridization which went from $1 to about $5.50 in just a couple of days. While the Gatecrash version has been slowly increasing as well, it's still only $1.50, which makes it hard to figure out what's happening with the blue instant. The card is a Commander staple, being one of the best removal spells for mono-blue decks, but it's also very easy to reprint (and could even return in Ravnica Allegiance in a month). If you need some copies don't be afraid to pick up the Gatecrash printing, but otherwise just ignore the noise of the C15 movement.

Finally, prices seem to have stabilized on Magic Online and have even started to tick up slightly. While it's clear that Wizards is putting all of their support behind Magic Arena for Standard play, there's no signs that older formats are coming to the client anytime soon (if ever). As such, if you have any interest in Modern, Legacy, Vintage, or Pauper in digital form, right now is a great time to pick up a deck on Magic Online since prices are so low. There's a pretty good chance staples from older formats will be higher in a few months when we hit unofficial Modern season with a bunch of Modern Grand Prix and likely a Pro Tour or two.

Land destruction in Pioneer sounds like a silly plan—Wizards stopped printing good land destruction way before Pioneer came to be. But can the greed of Arena players running almost no basic lands make it possible? Let's see!
