Hello and welcome to another edition of Super Sellers, the twice-weekly video series where we count down the best-selling cards of the week that was. I'm Jon Corpora, managing editor of magic.tcgplayer.com, and I'll be your guide through the wizard squares. Let's get it.
Kicking us off is Aether Hub, the card that refuses to not be a top-ten seller. Brian Braun-Duin said himself in his column his week that energy is busted, and who am I to ignore the reigning world champion?
Fatal Push is also here, which should surprise no one. The card's good and sees heavy play in Standard, Modern, and Legacy. Moving right along.
Speaking of energy being busted, Longtusk Cub cracks the top 10 this week. I love this card. If an opponent doesn't have an immediate answer for it it just snowballs and snowballs and gets out of reach of all the removal Standard has to offer.
Mausoleum Wanderer's picking up steam because Spirits are an overlooked, fun tribe in Standard. The deck has a tempo-oriented game to it; it's fun to weave in and out of your opponents and be really mana-efficient sometimes.
Lands performed well at last weekend's Legacy Grand Prix, notching a top 8 and a top 16 finish. Glacial Chasm is a big contributor to the deck, locking out most strategies all by itself. It's also worth noting that Glacial Chasm also has a cumulative upkeep, so alongside Solemnity, it's pretty great.
Glorybringer hangs onto its spot on the top 10 because there's not much like it in Standard right now. The latest in a long line of hasty five-mana dragons, Glorybringer will be striking fear into the hearts of opponents for a long time.
The Amonkhet full-art lands are solidly middle-of-the-pack this week. Hype for Hour of Devastation is starting to grow, and demand for the Amonkhet lands is slipping while the supply remains steady, and as more and more people pick up their lands, their sales will continue to slip.
My fondest memories of Decree of Silence all have to do with Type 4, but man does this card mess people UP with Solemnity. Your opponents don't even get to play Magic anymore! This is the "no new friends" combo of 2017.
Phyrexian Unlife is a huge part of the Ad Nauseam combo deck in Modern already, and it's yet another card the combos with Solemnity. With Phyrexian Unlife and Solemnity in play, you can't die. Unless you get, like, milled out or something. Still pretty cool!
And the best selling card this week is… Regal Caracal! Caracal plus Pride Sovereign out of Hour of Devastation is an awesome one-two punch of sweet, feline beatings.
That's it for this week. Let us know what you thought in the comments, or just come around on Monday, for the next edition of Super Sellers.
