This Week, Streets of New Capenna impacts the secondary market. Leaks from Baulders Gate caused an unexpected price spike. And Pioneer prices continue to boom.

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

Maze’s End

Someone got their hands on some early Battle for Baulder’s Gate packs even though the set isn’t scheduled to release until June 10th. They opened the packs on TikTok and leaked the cards to the rest of the MTG world, revealing some interesting new Gate cards amongst many other new and returning mechanics.

The upcoming Gate cards spurred player interest in Maze’s End, causing the card to spike from $2.00 to $12.00 earlier in the week. But since then, Maze’s End settled back down to about $8.00.

Devoted Druid

When players saw Luxior, Giada’s Gift, they immediately saw its infinite combo potential with Devoted Druid. Naturally, Devoted Druid shot up to $10.00 because of this.

But shortly after the price spike, the Bedecked Brokers Commander decklist was released with a reprint of Devoted Druid. Expect the price of Devoted Druid to fall back down in the following weeks.
