This week, there was some rather peculiar movement on Magic’s secondary market. Strangely, Pioneer of all formats caused a couple of price spikes.
Welcome to The MTG Marketplace, a weekly article on MTG Rocks where we cover each week’s biggest price spikes and overall market trends.
Winota, Joiner of Forces
The biggest price spike of the week goes to Winota, Joiner of Forces, going from $6.00 to $22.00 for the regular art printing. The card practically sold out overnight once Wizards of the Coast announced the new structure for organized play for MTG.
If you haven’t heard, Pro Tours are back! But the first step to reaching the Pro Tour is winning a Regional Championship Qualifiers, the format for which is Pioneer where Winota decks are a dominant force.
Fable of the Mirror-Breaker
Fable of the Mirror-Breaker was about $0.50 when it was first released in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. It jumped to $3.50 earlier this week, and since then, rose to $5.00. Once again, this market momentum is partially due to Pioneer. If you’re curious about the various decks playing Fable of the Mirror-Breaker, I suggest you check out my article that covers this Saga’s rise to prominence.
The Meathook Massacre
This is the most expensive card currently in Standard (excluding fancy foil variants). The Meathook Massacre is a powerhouse in Commander. But its recent price increase can mostly be attributed to Standard where it sees play in various decks like Orzhov Midrange, Rakdos Artifacts, and Golgari Control. Due to its rise in play, The Meathook Massacre is now $53.00.
Combat CelebrantIsshin, Two Heavens as One is the most popular from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty according to EDHREC. I discussed several cards that would go up in value because of this in my weekly newsletter. One such card was Combat Celebrant which was $11.00 at the time. Now, Celebrant is about $15.00.
