Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Sliver Legion Ponder Imp's Mischief

This week, the biggest finance news is Time Spiral Remastered, which is already doing some serious work in reducing the cost of some popular cards. Take Sliver Legion, for example. Last week it was almost $150 to pick up a copy, today you can preorder the Time Spiral Remastered version for $50, and it's likely the price will fall even further in the future. The same is true of Gemstone Caverns (down from $65 to $25), Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Vesuva (down from around $35 to $20), Cloud Key (from $35 to $8), Flagstones of Trokair (from $20 to $8) and more. Even if you're not feeling the older border theme or interesting in spending $200 on a box, there are some great deals be had on singles. If you think you might need some of these cards in the future, try to pick them up while they are cheap, as we have seen time and time again, Commander staples tend to rebound quickly after they are reprinted, so the sale might not last for all that long.

Speaking of Time Spiral Remastered, one of the most interesting aspects of the set is the extreme scarcity of foil old border cards. Take foil old border Ponder for example. You'll open one roughly once in every 91 boxes, which represents over $10,000 of product at wholesale (i.e. the prices that stores pay). Even if Wizards sells an absurd amount of Time Spiral Remastered there's a very realistic chance that there will only be something like 1,000 playsets (or 4,000 copies) of foil old border Ponder in existence, and this might even be too high. Expect the best foil old border cards to be extremely valuable - probably valuable enough to pay for your entire box all by itself - and if you are looking to pick up singles to bling out your Commander, Modern or Legacy deck, don't be surprised to pay Masterpiece prices (or more) for the best of the bunch. 

Finally, last week we discusses Imp's Mischief being one of the biggest winners, despite the fact we were heading into Time Spiral Remastered spoiler season, a set where the card would be a likely reprint as one of the most valuable cards from Planar Chaos. Well, now that we've seen the entire Time Spiral Remastered spoiler we know that Imp's Mischief was the one card from original Time Spiral block worth over $25 that wasn't reprinted (the Future Sight version of Horizon Canopy is $30, but the Zendikar Rising Expedition is only $20 while Imp's Mischief doesn't have any other printings). As such, it's likely the price of Imp's Mischief will keep creeping up since supply is so low, turned what looked like a very illogical buyout into a potentially profitable one for those who scooped up all of copies a couple of weeks ago.
