My guess would be that he first settles around 15-18 and in a year or so pops up to 25+ unless it's reprinted. It won't hit Karn Liberated since it is only a rare, but for that it might well become one of the most valuable (newer) cards. Its function is so generic and versatile that it is interesting in almost every format.

@B4hET: nah, this is a rare in a set with a big printrun. Wouldn’t be surprised if it will keep rising some more. Bought a playset now while it’s still around 10.

What do you guys think, will he ever reach Karn Liberated regarding the price?

I totally agree with both of you!
This Karn is awesome!

Mycosynth Lattice seems boring for casual, but you ALWAYS want some circumstancial card that you don't (want to) play mainboard. Also artifacts that exile themselves can go bonkers with Karn: Have Karn get Ugin's Nexus and start having fun. I agree: Best Karn yet.

Insane card, best Karn yet. I'll sit back and see the price skyrocket.

Rotation Grief: Dominaria (Part 2)

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-10-02)

The Standard Rotation is upon us. The coming meta will be shaped, in part, by what we lose. We've reached the end of this journey of grief (or jubilation, depending on who you ask) as we look into the red, green, multicolored, and colorless cards we'll have to remove from our Standard decks as Dominaria rotates out.

Rotation Grief: Rivals of Ixalan (Part 2)

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-09-20)

The Standard Rotation looms closer with every passing day. The major meta shift will come first as a consequence of four sets disappearing from Standard. Kumagoro looks at the red, green, multicolored, and colorless cards in Rivals of Ixalan, which may be the last small expansion ever (if the Three-and-One Model sticks).

Spicy Decks from Mythic Championship IV

ConstructedBy Rone (2019-08-30)

Modern is a new format after the recent banning and unbanning. People are looking to brew tons of new decks, but Rone decided instead to look back at Mythic Championship IV Barcelona. Sure, the decks were tuned for Hogaak, but maybe there were some gems that you could adapt in the new Modern.

Rotation Grief: Ixalan (Part 2)

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-08-28)

The Standard Rotation looms closer with each passing day. How the meta will change, at first, will be a direct consequence of the disappearance of four rotating sets. We continue this journey of grief (or jubilation, depending on who you ask) by looking at the red, green, multicolored, and colorless cards we'll have to remove when Ixalan rotates.

Cards to Pick Up Before Standard Rotation

FinanceBy HansD (2019-08-22)

Got the rotation blues? Have no fear! The end of a Standard format is the perfect time to pick up cards at their rock bottom prices, and Hans wants to talk about four cards he thinks has great long-term potential!

Rotation Grief: M19 (Part 2)

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-08-01)

With the release of Throne of Eldraine on October 4, the dreaded/craved yearly rotation will kick in, turning the current Standard pool from its eight-set peak to its five-set nadir. Meanwhile, we're having a look at the cards that we'll miss the most (or not), starting from those contained in the core set that bears this year's name.

ConstructedBy ChristopherB (2019-07-31)

Taking a Second Look at Modern Jund

ConstructedBy HansD (2019-06-25)

Modern has changed in the five years I’ve been playing and following it, and some decks that used to be on top of the dogpile have found themselves kicked off their perch. As Modern has become more powerful, aggressive, and linear, many of the fair, interactive decks that reigned supreme have gone the way of the dinosaur. Jund is one of these decks that has been pushed out more and more by the changes in the metagame, but Modern Horizons has brought along a good number of new toys that warrant giving this battered archetype a second chance.
