Article at a Glance

This week, there was a surge in play and price for a new Neon Dynasty card by Modern players. Plus, Kamigawa-related Commander decks continue to impact the market.

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

Hidestugu Consumes All

Upon its release, most players pinned Hidetsugu Consumes All as a sideboard card, and nothing more. Consequently, it was about $4.00 up until this week when it spiked to $11.00. The showcase version is now about $19.00.

Recently, Modern and Legacy players have turned to Hidetsugu Consumes all in response to the growing power levels and efficiency of both formats. The red-black Saga is a great answer to Urza’s Saga in that it “consumes” Construct tokens and the artifacts that the notorious land produces.

But Hidetsugu Consumes All answers many more cards like Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Aether Vial, Dragon’s Rage Channeler, and many more cards.

Daybreak Coronet

Because it is a staple in Modern Slippery Bogle decks, Daybreak Coronet has floated around $4.00-$5.00 for a long time. But this week, all copies rose to about $9.00. The new attention for the card is due to the new Aura Commander, Light-Paws, Emperor’s Voice.

Intruder Alarm

Intruder Alarm’s price spiked to about $20.00 earlier this week. But since then, the card continued to rise in price. Now, Intruder Alarm is nearly $30.00!

The reason Intruder Alarm’s recent demand is because of the Commander, Shorikai, Genesis Engine. Together, these cards can create an infinite combo that can draw your entire library and produce infinite mana. If you’re interested, you can read about the combo here.

Temporal Tresspass

Temporal Trespass | Wizards of the Coast

The moment ninjutsu was confirmed to come back in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, the prices for many Ninja cards started going up. While Temporal Trespass is not a Ninja card itself, it is a staple of Yuriko, the Tiger’s Shadow Commander decks.

Three months ago, Temporal Trespass was about $10.00. These days, the card is pushing $20.00.

Weekly Losers

Considering how much they used to cost, it’s almost unbelievable how cheap all of the enemy-colored fetch lands are right now. Verdant Catacombs costs around $18.00 at the time of writing. Misty Rainforest is running for $24.00. And Scalding Tarn is about $26.00.

If you have not already picked up the fetches you need, I recommend doing so before Modern Horizons 2 goes out of print and cards start to go up in price again.
