I only plays Standard and the best fetch in standard right now is not Polluted Delta, but I know its values in other formats. So, it is all good.

I sold a photocopy of Black Lotus for $700 back in 2001. The kid was so happy he didn't even inspect it.

Been a long time. What's the strongest set post 7th edition?

In term of power level, Mirrodin, probably.

Almost every sets seem to have at least 1-2 overpowered multi-format cards.

Somewhat agreed. I believe WOTC is trying to shift its demographics to EDH players more, leading to those clunky but quite powerful cards like god cycle and others.

Realistically a smart move, it's the most popular format outside of standard and limited (I believe) and people will play those regardless of what's put out. Why cater to smaller group of players? Especially from a secondary market POV they have no need to create legacy or modern bombs that aren't applicable in standard, they sell packs not singles. That being said, I wish the reserved list was gone.

The reserved list is good and fair. Reprinting highly valued broken cards can kill the game. Players and resellers do care about their possession's values and you don't want to anger both who are the core of the buyers. I know it first-handed because one of older CCGs I used to play heavily died this way.

Had the best MTG pre-release weekend. 3 tournaments, 2 short and 1 long. Won 2-0 then split prizes for the former and finished at 3rd place out of 30 something players for the latter.

Got Sarkhan Unbroken (about $15-20), Narset Transcendent (about $35-40) and another Narset but in foil ($85-$100) for those prize packs. Only spend about 60 something bucks for those and more.

Pro Tour: Battle for Zendikar is going on, and this card is all over the place.



It was 10 bucks then, 75 now and it will may reach 100 soon.

I used to play when i was younger and thought I would get into it, so bought a starter, box of boosters for the 2015 core set and than a box of the newest Dragons of Tarkir set. This was february/march...and ever since opening the cards they have just been sitting there. lol

It is not right now, but if there are decks that have good showings, or even win the Pro Tour this weekend, expect another price jump.

I don't think it will hit $100, though I were wrong about Jace's price hikes so many times.
