Give and Let Give #5: 2/7 - 2/13

WRITTEN BY

Welcome back to Give and Let Give!

First things first, I'd like to extend my extreme gratitude for all that Jonathan Medina has done during his years working at PucaTrade. I believe a number of big features built over the last couple years would simply not have happened without him. He will be sorely missed! Hopefully he remains in Discord and an active trader on the site. Thanks Jonathan!

The Trade of the Week this week is Gaea's Cradle. It's been around for more than 20 years and a card I've never been fortunate to own. This is a card I've always wanted to have in my collection and slept on when it was hovering around $100. Now it's nearly ten times that value and seems like a hefty price to pay. If you want to pick up a cheap(er) version for Commander, Growing Rites of Itlimoc is the way to go. It's relatively easy to flip and is even better than Gaea's Cradle on the land side. It taps for a green even if you have no creatures. It's already over 2,100 pts though...
