Magic the Gathering Commander decks 2014

Financial Review of Commander 2014

As I'm certain you realize, the most recent and greatest in the commander deck series is striking stores November 7, 2014. In celebration of Halloween, in the place of handing out candy, Wizards gave united states the treat of launch the complete spoiler which showcased sexy reprints and 61 new cards which can be sure to be played from the dining room table, if you don't the legacy part of the future Grand Prix nj.

Right from the start, it is important to observe that the MSRP of every of the five porches is $34.99, which should be the price you really spend simply because they will be sold within local big package, along side online game shops and internet suppliers. This past year there have been shortages associated with the Grixis notice Seize deck that contained True-Name Nemesis, which lead to Wizards changing their particular wholesale plan and permitted retailers to acquire lots weighted towards most well known porches. So even though it is feasible that there are shortages of just one of this Commander 2014 porches (more on this later on) in the 1st few weeks post-release, Wizards makes it obvious that you will be able to get your copy at MSRP before a long time. Which means unlike some restricted releases (such as the From the Vault show), once the initial period of hype dies down and offer increases, the value for the cards in a deck will not be much more than its $35 price tag as the decks are sitting on store shelves. Actually, if you mount up the total worth of the cards inside five Commander 2013 decks, you see they are really worth 6 - almost the 4.95 MSRP.

Moving forward, we are looking over the five decks and discussing several of the most crucial brand new cards, plus a number of the reprints, with an eye fixed regarding brief, mid, and long haul price trajectories of the cards. Fortunately, we've two Commander releases well worth of price histories to aid informed our opinions. Since there are plenty brand-new cards, and many more reprints in Commander 2014, i will not be discussing all of them, so always check always our the decklists right here for the full photo.

The Planeswalkers

All five decks are lead by a legal-as-your-commander planeswalkers based on a personality from secret lore of yesteryear. Let's get this out of the way right off the bat: With one feasible exception, none these planeswalkers tend to be legacy playable. Even my grandfather, which lost nearly all of his hands in a tragic chainsaw accident, can count the number of history playable planeswalkers on one hand (just about only Jace, your head Sculptor, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, and Liliana of the Veil, with apologies to Elspeth, knight-errant and Tezzeret, the Seeker). The bar is simply too large. Observe what all those planeswalkers have as a common factor? They cost four or less and protect by themselves the turn they arrive into play. Apart from Daretti, Scrap Savant, the planeswalkers from Commander 2014 price five or more, so finding a legacy residence is not likely.

On another hand, planeswalkers tend to be super popular, plus the twist to be playable as a commanders suggests there was likely to be much more casual interest in these cards than some "normal" planeswalkers or past commander set mythics. The problem is, in the event that you look over the current costs of Commander 2013, you'll find that the highest priced brand-new mythic through the ready is Oloro, Ageless Ascetic at $1.50. Therefore regardless of if Nahiri, the Lithomancer and the other countries in the 2014 planeswalkers have just a little bump from their card type, it really is difficult to imagine some of all of them becoming more than a few dollars at this time the following year. In the long run (possibly 3 years from now), $5-8 isn't impossible based on the costs quite well-known casual mythics through the initial commander decks.

Daretti, Scrap Savant

Daretti, Scrap Savant may be the one planeswalker which may be the exemption towards the not-tournament-playable rule for 2 reasons. Initially, it passes the four mana or less test, which once we have seen, is simply the standard for potential eternal playability. 2nd, there is certainly already a deck (albeit a tier 2 deck) which may quickly slot in a couple of Daretti, Scrap Savant.

Is Daretti, Scrap Savant better in Imperial Painter than Chandra, Pyromaster? Its difficult to say for sure. Chandra gets the advantage of choosing off an arbitrary unflipped Delver of Secret or Snapcaster Mage whilst supplying true card advantage once it hits the board. Daretti, Scrap Savant, however, is much more synergistic using Painter's Servant/Grindstone combination, enabling you to sac a Sensei's Divining Top or Phyrexian Revoker for right back a missing combination piece from the graveyard, and digs much deeper if you do some cards to discard. Only time will tell, but as Dack Fayden proposes, it only takes edge eternal play to drive a planeswalkers towards the $20 level (the current pre-order price). While I'm unsure Daretti, Scrap Savant can maintain this cost across next year or two, its good bet is be at least ten dollars annually from today.

Containment Priest

Talking about constructed cards, Containment Priest is the most essential in all of Commander 2014. It's good on its own (like Snapcaster Mage) and possesses an ability that hoses a huge amount of decks in history. Porches like Reanimator, Sneak and Show, Dredge and Oops All Spells straight-up scoop as soon as Containment Priest hits the table. This alone make Containment Priest a good sideboard alternative inside structure. But Containment Priest is also surprisingly appropriate against a large number of cards like Aether Vial, Green sunlight's Zenith, and All-natural purchase and decks like Merfolk, Death and Taxes, Elves, and Maverick.
