Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive


Wheel of Fortune Day's Undoing Surtland Flinger

This week, the biggest finance news was the continuation of Reserved List buyouts. Last week we talked about the absurdity of Revised Wheel of Fortune spiking to $400. Well, that was just the start. This week Wheel of Fortune briefly hit $2,000 and now sits at a bit under $900. While this might sound like strange advice coming from a MTG finance column, if you need a copy for a Commander deck, you might as well just make a proxy. While this solution doesn't help for sanctioned play, there really isn't any reason to spend nearly $1,000 on a single card to play with your local Commander playgroup. While I would strongly discourage you from supporting people making counterfeit cards (which are often marketed as "proxies" even though their main goal is to replicate an authentic card so that it can be mistaken for the real thing), there are plenty of sweet non-counterfeit proxies available these days and it's easy enough to make your own proxies with your home printer or a Sharpie. 

In the world of non-Reserved List cards, one of the biggest winners this week was Day's Undoing which doubled in price to $12.99. The biggest reason for this change seems to be that the sorcery has been widely adopted in Legacy Miracles decks where it combos with both Narset, Parter of Veils (to Mind Twist away your opponent's while refilling your hand) and Teferi, Time Raveler, which allows you to cast Day's Undoing on your opponent's end step to get around the "end your turn" drawback. As a one-printing mythic with a relatively unique (at least for unbanned cards) effect, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the new price stick.

Finally, a quick note on some of the "special" Kaldheim cards that come from products like the Kaldheim Commander precons or Themed Boosters. A lot of these cards are showing up at super high prices on the site at the moment, like Surtland Flinger being listed at $20.99. This is essentially a TCGplayer quirk brought about by low supply. Right now five vendors have Surtland Flinger listed on TCGplayer, all for $20.99, which is what sets the headline price of the card on the site. However, if you go to Surtland Flinger's card page, you'll see that CardKingdom has many copies for sale for $0.79 apiece. This same pattern holds for a bunch of Commander and Theme Booster cards from Kaldheim. TCGplayer prices should normalize as more copies are listed for sale over the next week or two. In the meantime make sure to look beyond the headline; these cards really aren't anywhere near as expensive as the TCGplayer pricing makes them look to be.

Budget Magic: Good in Soul Sisters? (Crimson Vow Standard)

If you predict a card will be good in Soul Sisters from every set for years, sooner or later, Wizards will print something that *is* good in Soul Sisters, and you'll be right. Is Crimson Vow finally the set?
