PROTRADER: The Watchtower: 1/9/17


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!

Wow. Now that was an announcement. If you somehow missed it, Wizards told us that in four hours we were getting the Banned & Restricted List update, one week early, and then dropped an especially large hammer:

Smuggler’s Copter is banned.
Emrakul, the Promised End is banned.
Reflector Mage is banned.


Golgari-Grave Troll is banned.
Gitaxian Probe is banned.

It’s going to take a lot of weeks, words, and work to figure out what all of this means across Standard and Modern. This week I’ll do my best to capture the surface level of these changes, but please give me some leeway for not catching any huge shifts that may come about. I’m sure even the pros are sitting around scratching their heads about where to go from here right now.
