It's Monday morning, afternoon, or evening, depending on where you reside, which means it's time once again for the Super Sellers. I'm Jon Corpora, managing editor for magic.tcgplayer.com, and I'll be counting down the top-ten selling cards from the weekend. Let's hit it.
Prowling Serpopard kicks us off, and although this card is a really unimpressive rate, there are enough Standard decks chock-full of countermagic out there, and Prowling Serpopard can give them some real headaches. If control become popular after Hour of Devastation hits and you're playing green, look to Prowling Serpopard for a sideboard answer to the blue stuff.
Gurmag Angler sees play in both Modern and Pauper because it's a cheap beater and delve is an absurdly good ability. Gurmag Angler's going to be good in both formats for the foreseeable future, but I'm not sure what drove players to pick them up this week.
Only two full-art Amonkhet lands cracked the Top 10 this week as those gorgeous full-arts keep sliding in sales. Turns out when a card keeps selling and selling and selling for two months straight, eventually no one's going to need them anymore!
Fatal Push! Yessireeeee. It's still good. It's still a staple in Legacy, Modern, and Standard. Let's keep moving.
Regal Caracal's still selling strong because it's cheap and if the early Hour of Devastation previews are any indicator, cat tribal's going to get some more support. That'll be a cool deck to keep an eye out for.
Wastes is up next, and uh… no clue why. None at all. If you've got any ideas, drop me a line.
Same with Sire of Stagnation. It's a cool card, I guess? I dunno. Let's call Sire what it is — a neat card for Commander — and move on.
The more cards they ban in Standard, the better energy gets, and Longtusk Cub is the lynchpin of the deck. The card spirals out of control quickly when it's on the battlefield, and it's low price point makes it easy for players of any budget to get their hands on.
Spire of Industry, 'cause uh… I don't know. I mean, look. The card is good. But why this week? This week's funny. There are no events to point to, and no one's really making new decks, so the sales are fueled by speculations on how Hour of Devastation will impact existing cards.
Inventors' Fair was our best-selling card, so maybe players are anticipating a new artifacts deck? I don't know. It's Monday. I cube drafted all weekend, you guys. I'm exhausted. I don't know what's even happening anymore. That's it for the Super Sellers. Please, someone — let me know why the top five broke in such a weird way.
