Weekly updated Gatecrash spreadsheet, 1/28

Gatecrash Header 2

My apologies in advance: the previous spreadsheet had a few issues (Debtor’s Pulpit isn’t a rare, Glaring Spotlight wasn’t listed) and fixing them created their own problems. I recommend downloading this new one and re-entering your collection. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Not many massive changes occurred over the week, but these mythic rares went up in value by around two to five dollars: Gideon, Champion of Justice, Domri Rade, Aurelia, the Warleader, Master Biomancer, and Prime Speaker Zegana. All of these are great cards, but few are truly constructed playable. Master Biomancer is an absolute powerhouse in limited but I don’t think he’ll see much play outside that format because he doesn’t have immediate board impact. Trade or sell your copies now while he’s overvalued. Domri Rade is the planeswalker to keep your eyes on, more so than Gideon, Champion of Justice. I think he’s going to continue to go up in worth. The rest will probably be played in standard early on, and thus raising their value, but few will remain. Wait another week or two for these to peak in value and then get rid of them.

Aurelia’s Fury was the only card to go down in value, from $25 to $20.61. This happened to Vraska, the Unseen in three weeks after Return to Ravnica was released. I believe Aurelia’s Fury is a significantly better card with the decrease probably due to overexcitement. People have the chance now to take a deep breath and re-evaluate cards logically, not emotionally.

So few of the non-mythic rares in this set are worth much, other than the five shocklands. I will be surprised if it stays that way – Deathrite Shaman blew up in value months after Return to Ravnica was released, so one of these cards has to find a home. Which one that is is anyone’s guess, but if I had to guess I’d say High Priest of Penance. His ability to block one creature and destroy another is frustrating for aggressive decks.

What do you think will happen over the course of the week?
