Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Hexdrinker Chain of Smog Sliver Hivelord

This week in the world of finance, the biggest gainer was Hexdrinker. While the one-drop has been seeing an increasing amount of play in Legacy and Modern, jumping 231% to nearly $28 is a bit of a surprise. This said, most cards from Modern Horizons are trending up with the set as a whole gaining about 13% in the past week. This is likely due to a bunch of different factors. The return of paper Magic is getting closer and closers, which is a good thing for paper Modern cards, it's been nearly two years since the release of Modern Horizons so the set is no longer being opened, capping supply, and Modern Horizons II is on the horizon, which should drive interest in the format. Is there are cards from the original Modern Horizons that you need it might be wise to pick them up soon, barring some surprise reprints in Modern Horizons II the playable cards from the set are likely to keep rising in price.

Meanwhile, we're also in the middle of Strixhaven spoilers, and the set is already having an impact on prices. Chain of Smog - a forgotten bulk uncommon from Onslaught - jumped from pennies to $23 as an infinite combo piece for the new Magecraft mechanic. The idea is that you can use Chain of Smog to target yourself an infinite number of times. Because Magecraft triggers when you cast or copy a spell, this will trigger your Magecraft effects an infinite number of times, with means if you have a Professor Onyx (borderless) or Witherbloom Apprentice on the battlefield you'll win the game on the spot, potentially as early as turn two with the help of some fast mana. Typically with these spoiler-based spikes card prices trend back down after a few weeks or months but not to anywhere near their old price; the days of Chain of Smog being a bulk uncommon are over.

Finally, Slivers are on the rise thanks to Time Spiral Remastered shining a new light on the tribe. Sliver Hivelord more than double in price on th week to nearly $43, Galerider Sliver doubled up to $21 and Syphon Sliver increased 55% to $17 as players build the tribe in Commander thanks to Time Spiral Remastered dropping the price of some popular and powerful Slivers. The good news is that all of these cards are reprintable, and Slivers are so popular we'll certainly get another Sliver set in the future. In the meantime, expect to pay more to finisher your Commander Sliver deck, and if you have Slivers you aren't using, it might be worth selling or trading them away now while prices are high.
