Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Scryb Ranger Arcades, the Strategist Mana Severance

This week, much like the last couple of weeks, pretty much all of the big finance news ties into Ravnica Allegiance spoiler season. The biggest news this week comes from Modern, where the uncommon Scryb Ranger jumped nearly 400% to around $5 after people discovered the two-drop is key to many game-winning Prime Speaker Vannifar loops. Meanwhile, Restore Balance is on the rise as well (up 27% to $6.39) thanks to Electrodominance providing a new way to cheat the spell into play early in the game.

In Standard one of the biggest winners is Arcades, the Strategist (increasing 15% to $4.59). Ravnica Allegiance seems designed to make the Arcades Wall deck playable with Tower Defense and High Alert being hugely important to the deck's success in the format. Even if Arcades Walls doesn't end up being top tier, it's budget friendly and the type of deck that a lot of people will build since it's unique and fun. I wouldn't be surprised to see Arcades, the Strategist continue to rise over the next couple of weeks. Worst case, Arcades, the Strategist is a unique long-term hold for casual and maybe even semi-competitive Modern play.

Last but not least we have a weird one: Mana Severance. The (non-Reserved List) Tempest rare was bought out in the last couple of days going from around $2 to near $40. Apparently people are considering the card a Persistent Petitioners enabler (exiling all non-Petitioners cards from your deck) and it's starting to creep into some strange competitive Commander combo decks like Jhoira Cheerios. The new price is unlikely to stick, but it's also unlikely that Mana Severance drops all the way back to $2 anytime soon. If you have copies laying around I'd try to sell them as quickly as possible while prices are high.

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!
