Article at a Glance

This week, a bulk rare nearly sells out, the Crimson Vow vampire hype causes a Commander card to spike over $100.00, and a popular Modern Horizons 2 mythic takes a BIG dip 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


Everyone’s talking about a new combo to come out of Innistrad: Crimson Vow. It features Cultivator Colossus and Abundance, which together, allow you to play every land in your deck.

This combo can work in any green Commander deck, but works particularly well in land-focused decks like Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith/Kodama of the East Tree, and Tatyova, Benthic Druid. I talked about other cards that complement this combo in an article I wrote this week, which I highly encourage you to check out.

The hype for Cultivator Colossus directly impacted the price of Abundance. Abundance used to be less than $1.00. But because of Crimson Vow, all copies of Abundance jumped to about $5.00 this week.

Edgar Markov

Wizards of the Coast

We’re wrapping up with Innistrad: Crimson Vow spoilers, and it doesn’t look like we’re getting the Edgar Markov reprint we desperately needed. Edgar Markov, originally printed in the 2017 Commander decks, is widely regarded as the best vampire Commander in Magic: the Gathering.

The hype for vampires in our back-to-back Innistrad sets this year has caused Edgar to skyrocket in price. At the time of writing, there are only 34 listings left on TCGPlayer, all of which are about $100.00+!

Mulldrifter FNM Promo

Wizards of the Coast

Predominantly an EDH card for the bulk of its existence, Mulldrifter is picking up in play in Modern. A good deal of play in fact. Mulldrifter is included in two of the top decks in the current Modern metagame, Elementals and Esper Reanimator.

The reason Mulldrifter is only just now seeing play in Modern is because of its synergy with Ephemerate. You can cast Mulldrifter for its Evoke cost, and with its sacrifice trigger still on the stack, you can target Mulldrifter with Ephemerate. This not only prevents Mulldrifter from going to the graveyard, but when it reenters play, it draws you another two cards. And when Ephemerate comes off Rebound the following upkeep, you can target Mulldrifter once again, and draw two more cards.

There are plenty of budget versions of Mulldrifter you can buy for less than $1.00. But the FNM Promo Mulldrifter has spiked in price because of its increase in Modern play. A decently conditioned Promo Mulldrifter is now about $20.00+.

Keep an Eye On


Ephemerate is becoming one of the premier spells of the Modern format. It’s included in so many decks these days like Blink decks, Elementals, Reanimator, Kiki Chord, Death & Taxes, and the list goes on. Really, any creature deck that has powerful ETB (enters the battlefield) effects will want to consider running Ephemerate. That’s why I’d keep an eye on the premium versions of this card.

Weekly Losers


A few weeks ago, Solitude saw humungous price increases. It jumped from $30.00-$35.00 all the way up to about $55.00! But the hype for Solitude has died down and it is available now on TCGPlayer for about $45.00 (regular art). Solitude is still a staple of many decks in Modern, and if you thought you missed out when it spiked, now may be a good time to pick up some copies.
