Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive


Zirilan of the Claw Devoted Druid Aetherworks Marvel

Earlier this week, one of the Commander 2017 decks was partially leaked, and it seems that one of the supported tribes is Dragons. In response, Zirilan of the Claw was bought out, spiking 380% up to $15. While looking for casual cards that might be in demand thanks to the new Commander decks makes sense, Zirilan of the Claw is a weird choice since the Commander 2017 deck is five-color and Zirilan of the Claw is best as a commander rather than just another card in the 99. This said, keep an eye on other dragon cards. It wouldn't be surprising to see more movement as we close in on the August release of Commander 2017.

Otherwise, the focus of the community seems to be Standard, with 19 of the 20 most-viewed pages on the site this week featuring Standard cards (with the one exception being Devoted Druid). Unfortunately, there isn't much to say about the format at the moment. Amonkhet cards are trending down as they increase in supply, and it's unlikely we have many huge shake-ups until Hour of Devastation (barring an unlikely banning of Aetherworks Marvel).
