Finance Update w/ Saffron Olive

Pelt Collector Walking Ballista Gaddock Teeg

This week the big finance news come from Guilds of Ravnica as people prepare for the new Standard format. The biggest winner was Pelt Collector, which more than doubled in price to $7 with Mono-Green Stompy getting some hype for being one of the better decks for the early weeks of Guilds of Ravnica Standard. Several Boros cards including Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice, Swiftblade Vindicator, and Legion Warboss also ticked up on the week. Expect a lot of both decks as tournaments roll out next weekend.

Meanwhile, Walking Ballista (up 21% to $17.50) is rising even as it rotates from Standard in just a few days. The development of the Hardened Scales Affinity deck in Modern has turned it from a solid Modern playable into a true format staple, with Walking Ballista seeing roughly as much play as Snapcaster Mage. If you still need copies, the Counter Surge Challenger Deck is selling for as low as $21.99 on Ebay and comes with a Walking Ballista, a Fatal Push, a playset of Blossoming Defense, and some fun rares and mythics that probably aren't good enough for Modern. Compared to buying Walking Ballista alone for $17.50, the Challenger Deck is a solid deal.

Finally, Gaddock Teeg jumped from around $30 to over $50 in the last week. The card is too punishing to return to Standard and likely too expensive for most supplemental products, but it should be near the top of the reprint list for a future Masters set. I'd look to sell whatever copies you have into the hype and, if possible, hold off on buying copies until the inevitable reprint comes.

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!
