PROTRADER: Pulling the Plug

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. And watch this YouTube channel to keep up to date with Cartel Aristocrats, a fun and informative webcast with several other finance personalities!

Wizards finished upending the Commander 2016 spoiler cup into our lap on Friday, and subsequently the full set list has been available for several days now. Even if you aren’t a fan of the format, there’s something here for anyone that ever casts a Magic card. Following in the footsteps of Conspiracy: Take the Crown earlier this year, C16 is packed with mid-value reprints that land all over the place in terms of demand profiles. We’ve got casual all-stars like Sol Ring and Solemn Simulacrum, out-of-left-field cards like Iroas, God of Victory and Wheel of Fate, and even some Legacy action with (not-a-reprint) Magus of the Will. Regardless of how you like to play the game, there are reprints or new cards in here that you’ll be glad to take advantage of.

  1. “I can’t tell you that that’s fun though, and what is life without hope.”


    So then, what’s your take on all the EMA stuff? Hard sell?

    1. Pretty much, I think. Some of it is geared more for other formats than Legacy — Gamble comes to mind — but any Legacy-specific stuff is in rough shape.

      One offset is that all of those cards were just reprinted, so some/most are going to be close to their floor for awhile. You may see a few individual cards rise, but that won’t be because of persistent Legacy demand.
