Give and Let Give #19: 5/16 - 5/22


Welcome back to Give and let Give! This week we don't have anything quite as cool as Shahrazad, but there are some gems here. Most notably in the foil section.

You'll also notice some Scalding Tarn's on the list. Not surprisingly, we've seen an uptick in all fetch lands traded this week. With the new set on the "Horizon" it's obvious why. Before spoilers began I had thought, "Well, I have all my fetches, so I probably don't need any more". 

How wrong I was. What does Wizards do? They spoil extended-art and old border fetches...

So here's the dilema. I am a sucker for the extended-art cards (they are my foils), and they will likely command a high price to collect. It's probably not worth it to try and pick them up without a need, but they look so good!

Speaking of pricy lands, the Zendikar Expeditions are also quite valuable. This weeks trade isn't even a fetch land and has a hefty price tag (more than 10x the normal value).

Nice to see Serby with a Top Trade under his belt! Happy Trading!
