Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Diregraf Colossus Mishra's Bauble Peregrine Drake

This past week was tribal week in the world of finance. All five of the week's biggest winners are, in one way or another, attached to tribes that are getting more support in Eldritch Moon. Diregraf Colossus and Prized Amalgam on the back of Zombie hype, Rattlechains and Bygone Bishop for Spirits, and Matter Reshaper has a lot of synergy with emerge (which isn't exactly a tribe, but close enough). Whether any of these cards pan out remains to be seen, but at this point I'm not in a huge rush to sell—if any of these tribes develop into a tier one strategy prices could increases even more, especially with a Pro Tour on the horizon.

We had another buyout this week in Mishra's Bauble (up 124% to just under $25), but at least this one makes a bit of sense. Mishra's Bauble is a four-of staple in Modern Death's Shadow (also known as Suicide Zoo), which is currently the third most played deck in Modern. When you combine this huge increase in play with the fact that Mishra's Bauble's only printing was in Coldsnap, a set of notoriously low supply, it makes sense that Mishra's Bauble is shooting up in price. The good new is that unlike Reserved List cards, if Mishra's Bauble gets too expensive, it can and will be reprinted in a future Modern Masters or supplemental product, which means it's not a safe long-term investment. I'd be looking to sell into the hype.

Finally, tomorrow is the next Banned and Restricted announcement, and while it seems unlikely that we get any major changes, there's some small possibility that Sensei's Divining Top could be banned in Legacy, or something random could come off the banned list. While Pauper finance hasn't really caught on in paper, it's big on Magic Online, which is important because the most likely banning is Peregrine Drake. My bet would be they give it until September and then take action. Regardless, the most important thing is to protect yourself on various trading and selling platforms so that you don't get stuck buying cards at a new inflated price, or being shipped a bunch of suddenly worthless banned cards. The easiest thing to do it just remove anything that could be impacted tonight, and then relist those cards after the announcement tomorrow morning.
