Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive


Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle Nexus of Fate Evil Eye of Orms-by-Gore

The biggest winner this week was Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle which more than doubled in price to $20. At first glance this makes sense, considering that TitanShift is a top tier deck in Modern and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is the deck's primary win condition. The reason for the price movement is more interesting: Scapeshift is being reprinted in Core Set 2019. With the sorcery dropping from $60 to $20 thanks to the reprint, it's likely that a lot more players will be interested in building TitanShift, driving up the price of the land.

Speaking of Core Set 2019, the exclusive Buy-A-Box promo Nexus of Fate is currently selling for somewhere between $23 and $30 on eBay. While you probably want a copy in your collection for Commander and maybe even for Standard as well, if you don't care about the extra turn spell, it's still a great reason to pick up a box early from your local game store. If you can get a box for around $100 and sell Nexus of Fate for around $30, you're really only paying $70 for the box. At $70 a box, it's very likely that Core Set 2019 will have a positive expected value (if you're looking for a full EV breakdown, it's coming next Sunday).

Finally, in my favorite buyout ever, the Legends version of Evil Eye of Orms-by-Gore went from under $1 to $17 this week. It's not on the Reserved List and has been reprinted multiple times, which makes it especially strange. Apparently someone is betting on a lot of players not only building—but also blinging out—Eye-tribal with Okaun, Eye of Chaos and Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom.
