Prices in US exceed 15$ (13,5€) already, I wonder if the gap between EU and US prices will close after the lift of the quarantine.
EDH and Ikoria (Lurrus) are changing the market rapidly.

Price can be explained due to very limited stock. Coldsnap was a rather small, not so popular and low-print set to begin with. Modern was not a thing then (only Extended). Not many players (including myself) knew that this 0 mana "do nothing much" or "+1 storm" artifact will be valuable after 10 years so it was hidden somewhere in a crap-box, was used as a bookmark or given away to young siblings who just started playing Magic. If you don't want to spend 10-15 euros on a cantrip, splash blue and use "Peek" instead. Sure Death Shadow can play without baubles, but it may give you that slight competitive advantage which might contribute to important victory in a tournament.

It is way too expensive for what this card does. 0 mana, look at the top card of am library and draw a card. nice abilitare, offerte course, butta they are not game changing, they aren't win cons and 20€ for an uncommon Arena just saying: buy me! And there is only one deck, which plays that card: death shadow. and It performs also great without the bauble

We need reprint this card, To play shadow zoo!! So hard To buy uncommon for 60€

How can this card be so expensive, if no one plays it? I've never faced it in a tournament yet...

Slinging Spells in Standard and Modern Izzet Tempo

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-07-15)

Recent sets, such as Ikoria and Core Set 2021 impacted the metagames of multiple formats, but they also made way for some interesting non-meta strategies. One of the most prominent candidates is Izzet Spells, a tempo deck that can be easily tuned to become an aggro and/or even a budget deck.

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-07-09)

Companions Moving to Modern Main Decks?

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-06-08)

Yorion, Sky Nomad Rises in Modern

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-05-25)
