Article at a Glance

This week, leaked Neon Dynasty lands cause a card to spike. The general hype for the new set is driving prices up for many cards. And a $100.00 Planeswalker is finally dropping in price.

Welcome to The MTG Marketplace, a weekly article on MTG Rocks where we cover each week’s biggest price spikes and overall market trends.

Weekly Winners

Elvish Reclaimer

Elvish Reclaimer | Wizards of the Coast

Elvish Reclaimer jumped from $4.00 to about $7.00 this week, mostly due to two leaked cards from the upcoming Magic: the Gathering set.

Spoiler season for Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty has yet to begin. But people have been leaking cards left and right.

Two of the cards leaked thus far are Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire, and Takenuma, Abandoned Mine.

Elvish Reclaimer already worked well with fetch lands like Windswept Heath. But the new “channel lands” can help unlock Elvish Reclaimer’s stat boost too.

Temporal Trespass

Temporal Trespass | Wizards of the Coast

Temporal Trespass has risen from $8.00 to nearly $13.00 over the last couple of weeks.

Ninjas are confirmed to return in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. Kaito Shizuki and Satoru Umezawa were officially spoiled. Thes cards also confirmed that the ninjutsu ability will return as well.

While many players are excited to build a Commander deck around the new Satoru Umezawa, there is a popular ninja Commander that already exists. Yuriko, the Tiger’s Shadow players can rejoice that their deck will get new support.

Temporal Trespass is considered to be somewhat of a staple in Yuriko decks, and as the deck is getting new attention, Trespass is going up in price.

Sea Gate Restoration

As you can see in the graph below, Sea Gate Restoration is on the upswing. The card is about $13.00-$14.00 at the time of writing.

This market movement is likely due to the same reason Temporal Trespass is getting attention. When you reveal either card off the top of your library with Yuriko, the Tiger’s Shadow’s ability, your opponents will take a lot of damage.
