Weekly Update (Jun 11): Magic the Gathering MMORPG

Magic: the Gathering MMORPG from the Developers of Neverwinter MMO

Mtg rpg

We have several news sources confirming a new Magic: the Gathering MMORPG from the publishers Perfect World, and Cryptic Studios, the developers of Neverwinter MMO. The title is being called a "triple-A game," so expect a big budget. Details are sparse and non-existent at this point, so let the speculation begin!Read more

Budget Magic: GB End (Modern)

Emrakul, the Promised End and Smuggler's Copter are too good for Standard, but are they good enough for Modern? Yes!Read more

Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Baral, Chief of Compliance Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger Ethersworn Canonist

This week the finance world was fairly quiet, although this will likely change next week with the next Banned and Restricted Update along with announcement week festivities. In Standard, the biggest winner was Baral, Chief of Compliance, which increased 12% to $3.29, but the reasons for this bump aren't clear. While the blue legend does see play in Modern and even Vintage, it hasn't seen any play in Standard. Otherwise, the Standard adjustments are small, with staples like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Chandra, Torch of Defiance up slightly and many cards from the Zombies deck ticking down as the tribal deck falls from the top tier of the format.

In Modern, Ethersworn Canonist jumped another 50-60% (depending on the printing) to about $15 on the back of increased play in both Legacy and Modern. In Modern, Storm and Living End are on the rise, while in Legacy Ad Nauseam-based Storm decks and combo-Elves are both near the top of the format, making Ethersworn Canonist a great sideboard option for just about any deck running white. It will be reprinted again at some point, and it's fairly safe for Standard, but until then, it seems likely to stick at over $10.

Finally, over the past few weeks we've talked about the end of Aether Revolt and Kaladesh redemption on Magic Online. The deadline has come and gone, and so far the impact as been minimal. While we've seen normal fluctuations on Magic Online this week, there wasn't a huge crash with the end of redemption. While the increased supply and lack of release valve could still have an effect as time goes on, it seems that the immediate impact is much less than many people anticipated.
