Weekly Update (Feb 28): Time Spiral Remastered Previews

Time Spiral Remastered Previews

Time Spiral Remastered previews are here, with this week featuring mostly Blue and White cards. A lot of Commander/Eternal staples are showing up in the "old border reprint" slot, so be sure to check out for all the latest cards.

Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Alrund's Epiphany Imp's Mischief Ponder

This week in the world of finance, our biggest Standard winner was Alrund's Epiphany. The mythic extra turn spell shot up 48% to over $4. Traditionally extra turn spells, especially those printed at mythic, manage to hold a reasonable amount of value based on casual play, but the increase of Alrund's Epiphany is tied mostly to Standard where it has become one of the 50 most-played cards in the format, showing up in various ramp and control decks. As a mythic it has the potential to continue to increase if it continues to see heavy Standard play, although perhaps the bigger lesson is that if you see a mythic extra turn spell selling for $2.50, it might be worth buying. Outside of Part the Waterveil, they pretty much all end up costing at least $5 or $10 eventually. 

Meanwhile in Commander, Imp's Mischief nearly double in price this week to $30. On one hand, this makes sense. The card offers non-blue decks a way to win counterspell battles and is showing up frequently in decks built around new legends like Tergrid, God of Fright, Valki, God of Lies, and Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools. On the other hand, it's from Planar Chaos, which makes it a likely reprint in Time Spiral Remastered. A reprinting would have a huge impact on the price of the instant since one of the biggest reasons it is so pricey is that it has never been reprinted. If you need copies, don't pay the current price without waiting to see if Imp's Mischief shows up in Time Spiral Remastered. If it is reprinted, you should be able to pick up copies for $10 or less. 

Speaking of Time Spiral Remastered, by far the most interesting aspect of the set is the old border reprints, which so far, have featured a ton of very playable cards for formats ranging from Commander to Vintage. While you'll open one old border card each pack, the rarity of any individual old border card is very similar to a mythic rare. This means that something like old border Ponder could easily end up being quite expensive, even though you can pick up other printings for just a couple of dollars. Keep this in mind during the rest of spoiler season: even though there might be a lot of bulk rares in the set proper, it will likely be the old border cards that add the most value to a booster box.
