PROTRADER: More Modern, More Grand, More Prixs

By: Travis Allen

Don’t miss this week’s installment of the MTG Fast Finance podcast, an on-topic, no-nonsense tour through the week’s most important changes in the Magic economy.

There’s a chance that you’ll manage to read this article before Wizards’ update today, Wednesday August 31st, 2016. If that’s the case, allow me to inform you that it would very much be in your best interest to sell any Liliana of the Veils you have right now if possible. At 11am EST Wizards will partake in the new “announcement day” event, wherein they roll out all the new products to be released for the first six months of 2017. Given that Grand Prix Vegas lands in June, which is the sixth month, that means we’ll be seeing the new Modern Masters as well. And, if Modern Masters 2017 continues in the same trend as Modern Masters 2015, it will add two more years worth to the total number of sets it can release cards from – in this case, Innistrad and Return to Ravnica. This means that for the first time since the Masters set’s beginning, both Snapcaster Mage and Liliana of the Veil are on the table for reprints. For the last two years Tarmogoyf has been the “anchor” card of the product, but I think this year they pivot to Liliana. While Goyf is technically more expensive, Liliana is closing the gap, and WotC would love to head that $150 price tag off before it arrives.

Hopefully there will be enough information in there to fuel an article next week. That’s next week though.

  1. What are your thoughts on Celestial Colonnade? Sees play in Jeskai Nahiri and various other control decks (Wafu’s Esper deck etc.)

    I know there’s an eventual reprint on the horizon, but will it be in Kaladesh or will it be next year.

    Thoughts on normal, foil and BaB promos.

    1. I have inside sources at wizards that say that Liliana and Snapcaster are confirmed for MM2017 (as expected), as well as Tarmogoyf yet again (apparently they want to lower its price yet again). Cavern of souls will NOT be reprinted due to this adding too much ev to the set. There was talk about putting enemy fetchlands in as well, but it seems that many are against it due to cavern of souls reasoning above.

      1. To answer the colonnade question, it will probably be in the next year, since it would not make sense to have it in the Kaladesh block.

    2. Colonnade saw a huge rise in price leading up to EMA and has been dropping since. I’d sell any excess copies now because it’s unlikely to jump that high again anyways, especially with reprint threats looming.
