That’s right, folks, we made some PROFIT!
Here’s 3 arbitrage wins today!
Our 4x Attune with Aether we bought for 0.004 tix total we got to cash in for 0.136 tix. That’s a 0.132 profit! I also picked up 4 more copies at the same rate as before. It’s the #1 card played in Standard at the moment, so I’ll get another chance I’m sure.
But that’s not all! We got to flip 4x Larger Than Life, also from Kaladesh, for a 0.098 profit. That was unexpected.
Even MORE unexpected was our flip of 4x Burning Inquiry from Magic 2010. I spent 0.032 tix and ended up with a 0.088 profit. After buying the 4 Attune with Aethers that’s a total arbitrage profit of 0.314 tix! No, it doesn’t cover the Deadeye Tracker loss. But it puts us back on track!
I also decided to make another Standard spec. This one only set me back a total of 0.08, 4x Tocatli Honor Guard from Ixalan. I’ve been watching this card awhile. It’s been at 0.02 tix for a bit, but it passed 0.1 tix for a bit early in November ‘17. Also, people are buying a lot of them. This makes sense. The effect is good enough that the Guard should see more Standard play in the future. Also, the buyin is low enough that striking out here is not going to hurt us.
As far as Deadeye Tracker is concerned, I see him falling back to 0.03-0.05 tix or lower and staying there for awhile. I just needed to reinvest those funds. That being said, there just isn’t a good home for him at the moment. I likely will buy back in if he hits 0.01-0.03 tix. This guy is too good to be a penny or two.
Now that we’ve freed ourselves from that, I also wanted to talk about a Modern spec in Terminate from Alara Reborn. It bottomed out at 0.06 tix and I bit. Only 0.24 tix for a playset of a Modern and Pauper staple is a steal. This guy has a lot of printings, but the others haven’t fallen this low. Honestly, I’ll flip these at 0.15-0.20 tix each. This has been in that range recently and has been as high as 0.6 tix each. It’s a very low risk spec that I could cash in at 0.07 tix today if I felt compelled.
We actually still have nearly 1.5 tix to spend, too! I’ll go into what our portfolio looks like in part #13.
