Let’s review where we are:
- Bought 3x Spark Elemental for 0.09 tix, sold for 0.225 tix
- Bought 4x Spark Trawler for 0.2, 0.05 each as investment
- Bought 4x Shock (7E) for 0.04, sold for 0.12
- Bought 4x Captain Lannery Storm for 0.56 tix, 0.13 each, as investment
I also bought 4x Nyx-Fleece Ram (0.012) & 4x Nature’s Claim (0.02) as hotlist flips, but failed to sell quickly enough. They are now accidental investments.
We took a day off from the collection for Halloween and our investments stayed about the same. Storm went up by 0.02 tix each, so that’s a good sign. Likewise, Scrap Trawler went up to 0.06 with a buylist of 0.05! So, how do things look today?
Lannery Storm bumped up to 0.20 a copy. We’re definitely trending in the right direction. But is it time to sell? Not yet. We are looking to hopefully sell for at least 0.25 tix a piece. This is a safe but quite substantial price target.
There are a number of Ixalan cards on my shortlist to invest in, as well as a couple others hanging around 0.10 tix each. But I’m holding fast on Lannery Storm as far as 0.1 tix and above specs for now. Let’s see if we can find a safe target or two around 0.01-0.02 tix each. There’s a pretty obvious one that I found from Ixalan: Walk the Plank.
These two moves seem OK for today. I did hamstring myself a bit by tying up so much in 4 copies of one card, but I’m fairly confident in a 30 to 40 percent gain on Lannery Storm, which will let us buy into a far wider range of specs. Also, we should get plenty more arbitrage opportunities, as today as a bit short on them.
This is a short part for today, but I watching some cards to see how they develop. Also, Rivals of Ixalan spoilers could play a big role in card prices… so right now, it’s best to watch and see!
