Give and Let Give #33: 8/22 - 8/28


That pesky one mana Monkey is back this week in foil. Once again it didn't make the top trade, but a notable mention with the amount of play it's seeing. I wouldn't be surprised to see Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer take the top spot one of these weeks.

We do have something shiny this week and it's from Zendikar Expeditions of which we've already had a couple make top trade. Steam Vents from Article #19 and all the way back to Article #4: Mana Confluence.

The shock lands have been slowly creeping up in price despite the reprintings in recent Ravnica sets. The good news? It's been announced that these will be printed in the upcoming "Un" set. In Q2 2022, Unfinity will feature full-art space themed shock lands!? 

An easy pick this week as I'm a bit of Boros man and have taken A LOT of damage over the years from this Mountain/Plains.
