This month we will look at a few speculations that I feel might have some long term potential to make a move in the market. The cards are ones that we are looking at to either buy or sell in it’s current state. Card values can drastically change after posting the article so please take note of the prices are captured at the time of posting this article. We do not support “buy-outs” and do not create these articles for that purpose.

Now let’s take a look at the cards for June 2018.


BUYING – Lodestone Bauble – Alliances

Lodestone Bauble is a reserved list card that is starting to see some play in Legacy. The deck is called “Bomberman” and it seems pretty fun to play and it makes use of Karn, Scion of Urza that was printed in Dominaria. We haven’t fired up the deck and checked it out just yet but by the looks of it there is a slight chance that it may stick around for a little while at least. Lodestone Bauble has the potential to spike pretty hard and if the deck popularity grows it could get to $15-$20 pretty quickly.

SELLING – Torrential Gearhulk – Kaladesh

Torrential Gearhulk has had a very storied past in its really long time Standard. It has had more drops in value then any of the rollercoasters at Great America (although I don’t actually think this is true…) and seeing less and less play overall with the release of Dominaria. Now I don’t think the card will bottom out it will likely settle in around $5-6 each after rotation happens which isn’t that far off. So if you don’t need your copies it might be a good time to release them into the wild.


HOLDING – Walking Ballista – Aether Revolt

Walking Ballista is an interesting card. It saw a huge spike and had a lot of expectations put on it with the pending new meta with the release of Dominaria. Although I think this card has hit its ceiling I also don’t believe this card isn’t going to have the rug taken out from underneath itself. Walking Ballista also sees a tremendous amount of play in all formats and will remain so. It doesn’t hurt that this card is the #2 overall played card in Standard right now. Even though this card may drop slightly I don’t feel this card won’t go below $15-16 even when it rotates out of Standard.

Those are my picks for this month. Let us know in the comments below if you have any picks that you are selling, buying or holding.
