Mythic price check – Rise of the Eldrazi, part four

So, release weekend has come and is in the process of going (perhaps your store has a nice Sunday evening flight you can attend). As card valuations continue and initial enthusiasm flattens out, let’s check in on mythic prices once more.

  • Kozilek, Butcher of Truth – $18.85 ($19.86) ($23.44) ($28.99)
  • Lighthouse Chronologist – $4.49 ($4.99) ($4.79) ($5.98)
  • Nirkana Revenant – $4.99 ($4.46) ($5.29) ($6.99)
  • Sarkhan the Mad – $13.99 ($14.66) ($16.89) ($18.98)
  • Transcendent Master – $10.99 ($11.99) (sold out) ($5.48)
  • Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre – $7.49 ($7.26) ($8.24) ($9.98)
  • Vengevine – $33.99 ($29.98) ($24.99) ($18.98)

Generally we’re seeing prices hover around fairly stable points. Sarkhan and Kozilek both continue to trend downwards, although I think Sarkhan will steady out soon enough — he’s not a bad card by any means.
The notable upward mover is Vengevine, which is a genuinely good card, albeit one that is probably spending a bit too much time in Magical Christmasland right now. I expect it to become a staple player in a subset of aggro decks, where it will be Giant Solifuge 2.0, forming the top end of the curve and forcing opponents to reconsider how they play removal.
Gideon Jura remains pretty pricey…and I’m not sure he’s worth it. Whereas I looked at Elspeth and thought, “Wow, that’s a good card!” with Gideon I don’t get that kind of response. Obviously, more testing is required, but I think if someone offered me four Gideons or four Vengevines, I’d take the plants.
