Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Verdurous Gearhulk Blooming Marsh Ajani Unyielding

This week all of the biggest finance news is related to the first tournaments featuring Aether Revolt. In Standard, the biggest winners are from the GB Snake deck which does some crazy things with Winding Constrictor. While the snake itself more than doubled to just over $1, it's the other cards in the deck that have seen the biggest gains, especially Verdurous Gearhulk and Blooming Marsh, both of which increased about 50% to $18 and $6.50 respectably. Whether or not GB Snake remains one of the most popular decks in the format remains to be seen. It's always smart to view pre-Pro Tour results skeptically, which means the safest play is to sell your copies now.

Meanwhile in Modern, it's Sram, Senior Edificer that is shaking things up alongside Puresteel Paladin (which is only up 20% on the week but has tripled from $5 to $15 over the past month). Along for the ride is Mox Opal (up about 10% depending on the printing, even with Modern Masters 2017 on the horizon) which is a key piece to the turn two combo kill, generating the mana needed to Grapeshot. Here the concern isn't so much the Pro Tour, but that fact that the deck is still untested as far as major tournaments are concerned, and the impending release of Modern Masters 2017, which could lead to the reprinting of Mox Opal or even Puresteel Paladin. This said, there's a chance these cards (and other pieces from the deck like Retract) go even higher if the deck performs well at the GP level.

Finally, as for Aether Revolt itself, the general trend is down with only a handful of cards (mostly from the GB Snake deck) bucking the trend and increasing on the week. All told, the total set price dropped about 10% on the week and is down about 30% from its high during presales. Things will reset again this weekend with Pro Tour Aether Revolt, so at this point it's probably worth holding onto anything you think might see play with the plan to sell this coming weekend or the beginning of next week when the breakout cards from the event will be at all time highs.
