Iconic Masters was just released on MTGO, so we’ll be investing in some cards that are likely going to crater as the set continues to be opened. But until that time, we’ll hold onto the event ticket that we were able to cash out. So, I only had about 0.2 tix in bot credit to play with. I decided to make two investments, both in Standard staples” Chandra’s Defeat & Whirler Virtuoso.
Whirler Virtuoso is an extremely low risk investment. I only spent a total of 0.008 tix on four copies, and may even buy another playset later. These are already buying at 0.01 tix EACH on some bots. It’s a staple of Temur Energy and 4-color Energy decks. While this may not mean much, he’s even on the rise in Paper. Not bad for a Standard uncommon that doesn’t see Modern or other format play. The target here? I’m hoping we can get 0.1 tix each, but at such a low buy-in, who really cares?
As other standard staples crash with obvious potential rebounds, we’ll take a look. I was going to go in on Harnessed Lightning when it dipped to about 0.1 tix for a bit, but our funds were tied up in Deadeye Tracker and we missed that chance.
How do you feel about these two cards? With only 0.13 tix on the line, I’m perfectly happy with any gains at all. We have that ticket in reserve if there are no-brainer buys that come up. But I’m really banking on Deadeye Tracker doing what I planned on him doing all along.
More MTGO 1 Tix challenge when there’s something substantial to say!
