Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Goblin Chainwhirler Fiery Gambit Karplusan Minotaur

The biggest finance news comes from Pro Tour Dominaria, which wrapped up today. While we didn't see any absurd spikes, the big lesson from the event is that Mono-Red and Red-Black Aggro are the best decks in the format by a big margin and prices of cards in these decks are creeping up. Goblin Chainwhirler, for example, the most-played card at the event, increased 28% to $7. Rekindling Phoenix and Hazoret the Fervent also gained slightly today. What this means for the long term is less clear, especially with rotation in 124 days and a lot of the key pieces to red-based aggro rotating. If you're not playing the deck, you might as well sell into the hype in preparation for rotation. While RB and Mono-Red could still be played this fall, that's not a sure thing.

Meanwhile in casual formats, we saw the continued buyouts of coin flip cards this week based on the new coin flip commanders in Battlebond (Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom and Okaun, Eye of Chaos]]. Fiery Gambit and Karplusan Minotaur both jumped almost 200% into the $10 range and Stitch in Time also increasing. The lesson here is to get your commander cards early during spoiler season, because when a new archetype is supported, weird old cards double and triple in price based on the rush of players buying them for their new Commander decks.

Finally, this week saw an increased focus on Reserved List cards in the form of a YouTube video from a popular YouTuber. If you need any Reserved List cards for casual play or eternal formats, you should probably buy them as soon as possible. Prices keep going up, and if you don't pick up cards soon, you risk being priced out of some sweet old cards. While not many players need thousands of dollars of power nine cards, there are quite a few Commander staples in the $20 range which will likely be $40 or $50 before long.

Much Abrew: Teaching Greedy Pioneer Players about Basic Lands

Land destruction in Pioneer sounds like a silly plan—Wizards stopped printing good land destruction way before Pioneer came to be. But can the greed of Arena players running almost no basic lands make it possible? Let's see!
