W6 is on "The List". Lets see if it effects the price. I fear it wont.

Ktulu4(26.07.2019 17:35)

What is going on?! Ok the card is powerfull (maybe more than the peolple expected) but the prices are totally insane! And the foil ones are out of this world! We are almost at the same level of Jtms.

Crazywictor(17.07.2019 12:47)

I wasn't prepared for this card at all when I first saw it! But I knew that Modern Horizons would change Vintage, Pauper, Modern and Legacy as we know them completely.

Wchko(14.07.2019 13:47)

Well the strip mine combo with it in legacy is pretty much OP! So that's maybe one good reason for such price spike..

hoodyhoo66(10.07.2019 10:51)

They were complaining about the price, I hope they are happy now.

Mastercigam(10.07.2019 07:24)

@Mlemort it absolutely is, problem is that the price isnt stable enough to say its under or overpriced

Mlemort(10.07.2019 00:57)

Feeling sorry for those 2 guys being clueless - this card is insane for 2 mana.

pepi55(27.06.2019 17:33)

I'm going to file a complaint about this card being too expensive. Hopefully the merchants will adjust the prices accordingly.

SaLeGrOssO(09.06.2019 19:49)

Overpriced. The effect is very bad and does not justify the cost.

The Finest (?) Vintage: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

ConstructedBy OdinFK (2021-04-13)

Top 5 Cards That Should See More Play in Modern

ConstructedBy Skura (2021-02-01)

Modern is a vast format with dozens upon dozens of viable archetypes. To me, it's the most diverse, fun, stimulating, and overall best format in Magic. However, people sometimes tunnel vision on a narrow subset of cards that they keep playing over and over again and forget the cards that need exploring.

Zendikar Rising Spotlight: Jace, Mirror Mage in Legacy

SpoilersBy Andifeated (2020-08-31)

The Legacy format was shaken by cheap planeswalker cards in 2019, with a bunch of story-relevant characters pushed onto overpowered cards. Jace has long been deprived of the throne. The new three-mana version from Zendikar Rising may not change that, but the card is definitely worth a look.

BUG Control in Modern

ConstructedBy Skura (2020-08-13)

Following the ban of Arcum's Astrolabe from Modern, control players have to rediscover the archetype and readjust to the new environment. "Skurtai Control" is waiting in the wings to take over, quite likely the best successor to the previously dominating snow control value machines.

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2020-08-11)

Updating Modern Jund

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-04-03)

Theros Beyond Death impacted a lot of nonrotating formats with broken combo cards like Thassa's Oracle and Underworld Breach.

Playing Unpowered Vintage Jund at Eternal Weekend

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-01-15)

Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

ConstructedBy Ratix (2020-01-06)

The Future of Dark Confidant and Modern Jund

EntertainmentBy HansD (2019-07-25)

Midrange decks are built with the metagame in mind and are thus highly customizable. Regardless, even the most customizable of these decks still play core cards that are integral to the deck’s gameplan. Very rarely, in a non-rotating format such as Modern, does a new card come along that displaces the current best-in-slot card for a midrange deck. With the printing of Wrenn and Six in Modern Horizons, I believe that Dark Confidant has found himself as the odd man out after years of being a Jund mainstay.

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.
