Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and good night, wherever you happen to be in the world. I'm Jon Corpora, and it's been a minute since I've done one of these, but I'm happy to be back in the saddle. These are the best-selling cards of the past week. Let's get into it.

#10: Herald of Secret Streams

One of the hosts of a Magic podcast I listen to had Herald of Secret Streams pegged as a potential contender in Standard during Ixalan preview season. I won't say who it is in order to spare them the embarrassment, but Herald of Secret Streams remains a neat card that is perfectly capable of tearing up Friday Night Magic.

#9: Gifted Aetherborn

The fact that Gifted Aetherborn trades cleanly with all the Bristling Hydras floating around is a point in its favor, and many players are turning to it in their black decks for just that reason.

#8: Aven Mindcensor

Modern is littered with decks that bring Aven Mindcensor in post-sideboard. Trust me, wrecking your opponents' fetch-land and getting a 2/1 flier is a great feeling.

#7: Chart a Course

Chart a Course is going to continue to be relevant as long as God-Pharaoh's Gift decks are a thing, and boy howdy are they a thing.

#6: Lightning Helix

Remember that time they attached a Lightning Helix to a 4/5 trampler for four mana and no one played it? No, you don't remember, because that card is totally nuts and everyone played it. Lightning Helix is pretty good too.

#5: Thran Dynamo

When it was in Standard, Thran Dynamo won back-to-back World Championships in the hands of Kai Budde and Jon Finkel. That's just good pedigree.

#4: Mishra's Bauble

Now that Mishra's Bauble isn't a bajillion dollars anymore, the card is selling like hotcakes. Its pricetag will bottom out soon and then start to slowly creep back up over a long stretch of time, as uncommons from Masters sets tend to do.

#3: Kitesail Freebooter

Kitesail Freebooter's seen play all over the map in Standard thanks to its aggressive, disruptive nature and low price tag.

#2: Unclaimed Territory

I always used to say that Unclaimed Territory's sales was a testament to the power of casual cards, but the card sees so much play in Modern that that's no longer the case.

#1: Opt

But the best-selling card for what feels like the billionth week in a row is Opt! Seeing more cards for a small amount of mana is good, it seems.

That's it for this week. See you next time.
