Another week, another amazing trade. We had a gold border Gaea's Cradle - 1999 Matt Linde (USG) change hands. This is not our first Cradle, but certainly unique since it's in gold border. Gaea's Cradle made top trade in the past (Article #5), but definitely needed a mention.
What's better than amazing? How about "Great"?
This card commanded a high price from the beginning, and it's because of EDH. Any flavor of Green Creature deck wants this card. It's mana cost is cheap (in theory), it produces mana, it gains you life, draws you cards and puts counters on your creatures as they enter the battlefield.
What more could you want from a green mythic?
I don't think you can ask for more and the reason any artifact removal is getting pointed at this first.
