Article at a Glance

This week, several fringe Commander cards saw substantial price movement, you’ll never guess how expensive this Standard-legal common is, and a new, weird burn deck in Modern caused a fourteen-mana spell to spike.

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

Hunted Phantasm

Wizards of the Coast

Who doesn’t want to play a three-mana, unblockable 4/6 creature? But at the same time, who wants to give five 1/1 Goblins to an opponent? If we could somehow have one but not the other, then Hunted Phantasm would actually be a good Magic card.

Well, players figured out how to do just that with Toxrill, the Corrosive as your Commander. That’s why Hunted Phantasm jumped from $2.00 to almost $6.00 this week.

Twilight Prophet

Wizards of the Coast

Innistrad: Crimson Vow aimed a spotlight on MTG Vampire cards. Ever since the set released, bringing with it the Vampiric Bloodline Commander deck, several Vampire cards have been on the rise. Just look at Twilight Prophet. It’s gone from $27.00 before Crimson Vow, to about $35.00 today.

Blinkmoth Infusion

Wizards of the Coast

Blinkmoth Infusion jumped from $3.00 to $7.00 this week and it’s owed entirely to Calibrated Blast. The wonky burn spell requires that you play a bunch of high mana value spells in your deck like Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. That way, Calibrated Blast is almost guaranteed to deal massive amounts of damage.

If this deck becomes the real deal, you’ll want to consider picking up your Scion of Draco‘s while they’re still around $2.00.

Deadly Dispute

Wizards of the Coast

Why is this common from a currently legal Standard set worth mentioning? Isn’t it $0.25 like most common cards? Nope! Deadly Dispute has been on the rise (see graph below) and is currently selling for about $3.00.

Weekly Losers

Moonveil Regent

Moonveil Regent is a sweet Magic card. It was $10.00+ when it first came out in Innistrad: Midnight Hunt. But these days, you can pick up the regular art version for about $2.00!

The reason for Moonveil Regent’s substantial price drop is because it hasn’t been as prevalent in Standard decks as people expected. There are just so many other good threats you can be playing such as Goldspan Dragon.

Where Regent really shines, however, is in Commander, specifically in multicolor and Dragon decks like The Ur Dragon and Tiamat.
