PROTRADER: PucaPicks for 10/20/2016

ADVERTISEMENT:


Well, the Pro Tour has caused some amazing spikes in card prices, and I’m going to talk some about those prices.

I’m also going to dive deep into some older cards that either are good candidates to go up, or have gone up too much and are ready to go back to earth.

The changes to Standard rotation require more thought, and I’ll have more on that next week.

PROTRADER: PucaPicks for 10/13/16

Now that the Pro Tour is upon us, we are officially done drafting Shadows over Innistrad and Eldritch Moon. That means the supply of those sets is at maximum, and those who needed or wanted cards have likely gotten them.

Kaladesh prices are trickling downward, so I don’t want to deal with any of that yet. Send out your Smuggler’s Copter right now, don’t try to sell into a possible PT spike. It’s possible the pros come prepared for that card in a way that week 1 of a Star City Games Open isn’t. I stand by what I wrote on Friday: It’s impossible for an in-print rare to hold a price like this and I don’t want to try and chase profits to previously-unknown levels. I’ll take the points now.

As for today’s picks, these are a mix of long-term casual value and Standard specs that I’ll want to unload in 3-6 months. Some of these I mentioned seven weeks ago when I focused just on Eldritch Moon, but it bears repeating. I freely admit that I’ve picked up a few of these cards already, but I tend to limit my wants to a playset at a time. Diversification is my watchword, a lesson that 54 copies of Prophet of Kruphix taught me well.

Now for the picks!

Kaladesh is being opened all over, and I hope you have a good time opening Inventions and either playing the pretty cards or sending them out! I popped a Crucible of Worlds on Saturday and I couldn’t send that out fast enough.

Since I don’t play constructed, I want to focus this week on a set of cards that have gotten some interest but not too much: the Commander series.

If you were playing in 2011 when the first set came out, you were amazed at how much value these cards retained, but there’s factors that have come into play since. The first set happened right as Commander was tipping over, and it was under-printed in relation to eventual demand. The sets since have not had that problem, and that’s why there’s very few singles worth a lot in these boxed sets.

What these sets do offer is a truckload of $1-$4 cards and some unique, custom cards that are tricky, yet eligible, to reprint. Today I want to look at some of the cards that have been in these decks and are mostly good bets to raise in value over time, with the caveat that reprinting is quite possible and will torpedo the value if it happens.

Kaladesh is here and it’s pretty darn awesome! I had a great time trading things away at the prerelease after opening double Madcap Experiment.

Prices on PucaTrade right now reflect that no one is legally allowed to sell these cards online yet. Almost all of these are going to go down and that means your mode is to sell, sell, sell!

I want to highlight some particularly interesting ones, which have unusual foil prices, or multipliers that are just too high or too low.
