PROTRADER: PucaPicks for 12/1/16

ADVERTISEMENT:


I have to admit, I’m really enjoying this series, as I delve into older and older sets looks for not the most valuable cards, but the cards that are in highest demand (as of this writing).

We are reaching the point at which power isn’t as much of a factor as availability is. Most of these are either printed once on a much smaller scale, or they have been printed several times and this is only one of the several versions available.

My goal remains the same: I want to find the cards that are both worth enough points to warrant picking out of bulk or binders, and also on enough want lists that I can send the card out relatively rapidly. These aren’t all the cards worth picking, these are just the ones easiest to get rid of–a prime consideration of mine at all times.

PROTRADER: PucaPicks for 11/24/16

Hello and if you celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving!

If that’s not a holiday you celebrate, that’s just giving you more time to get the jump on some awesome cards. 

This week, I want to look at some cards that are higher in price, but still Standard-legal. We’ve had a lot of results, and it’s time to let the numbers sink in. We’ve also had lots and lots of Kaladesh opened, with a lot more yet to go, so I’ll be keeping that in mind as well.

Some of these are buys, and some are sells. All of these are set to rotate next September, so rotation worries haven’t set in yet. I was surprised when I looked at some of the point values, and that game of expectations vs. reality is always what I want to try and profit from.

One of the features of Puca that I’ve really come to appreciate is the ability to sort cards and expansions by how many people want a card.

I find it super helpful to sort out what I can send in multiples, and what packages I can put together. It’s also great for me to get a quick list of the things I really want to look for from an expansion, most especially when I am sorting through chaff and looking for the things to pick out.

So this week, I want to peruse some expansions and see where I can pluck value, either from old draft boxes, or the nickel bulk box at your store, or at someone’s binder.

I’m going to go from Kaladesh backwards, so strap in!

So Commander 2016 lands in a week, and maybe some of you are checking your big box stores early. It’s not unheard of for them to stock these a day or two ahead of schedule.

This week I want to look at the listed prices and see where I can either buy low or sell high, even though you can’t quite get your hands on these yet, I like to plan ahead.

I want to be clear that if you can buy the decks on the first day, and then move out the singles, I don’t think that’s a winning play…mostly. The postage rate is going to be pretty high, unless you’ve got a great source for stamps, or you know someone who wants most of a deck.

That being said, these decks have a ton of value, and a lot of potential. Some people, who get stamps through work or some such, are going to really turn their $30 msrp into an easy 6000 points, but I just don’t have the time for that. If you do, more power to you. I’m properly envious of those who have the stamps and the spare time.

On to the cards!
