Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Johnny, Combo Player Hateflayer Horizon Canopy

It's been a fairly quiet week on the finance front with many of the biggest gainers not showing up on the movers and shakers page because the cards aren't actually legal in competitive formats. The big story of the week is nine cards from Unhinged and Unglued more than doubling in price with Johnny, Combo Player, Now I Know My ABC's, Strategy, Schmategy, and Jack-in-the-Mox leading the way. This is partly thanks to the announcement that Un-set cards will be legal in Commander until January, but many of these cards were on the rise even before the announcement because Unstable is driving interest in older silver-bordered cards.

In Modern, the biggest winner was Hateflayer, which jumped 51% to $4.21. As far as I can tell this is because Hateflayer is a key piece of Mairsil, the Pretender Commander decks and Mairsil, the Pretender himself is one of the more exciting build-around commanders from the Commander 2017 cycle. Not only does Hateflayer give Mairsil, the Pretender a way to deal damage, but untapping makes it possible to use multiple "tap" activated abilities in the same turn.

Finally, the community is still focused on Iconic Masters. In fact, seven of the 20 most-viewed cards on the site this week come from the set. While you should check out my article on what cards to pick up from the set if you are looking to build your Modern collection, the big take away is that prices for most cards in the set likely haven't hit their floors yet. Sometime in January (when the community is focused on Rivals of Ixalan) will probably be the best time to start picking up what you need, with the window extending for a few months.
