So let's look at Nezahal, Primal Tide as a creature. First of all he's a 7/7 for seven mana. He also can't be countered. He also allows you to have no maximum hand size which is great and control them. Whenever an opponent casts a noncreature spell, you draw a card. That's hand advantage, which is perfect for a control deck. Also, he has another ability, which allows you to discard three cards and exile Nezahal and return it to the battlefield tapped under its owner's control at the beginning of the next end step. This allows Nezahal to dodge removal, which is very powerful.
For some time, Nezahal was only retailing for about a dollar. But within the last week, his prices moved up to close to a dollar fifty. The reason that this is important is because whenever you see a card move up this much that quickly, it typically indicates that the card is in extremely high demand. Whenever a card is under $2 and seeing standard play and is seeing a rapid increase in price, it means that demand is quickly outstripping supply. This means there's going to be a major price change soon.
Already, major vendors like Card Kingdom are listing this card for $2.50. Meanwhile, this card is also selling on Amazon for around the same price. However, the TCGplayer market has not quite caught up yet. Because this is a card that will remain in standard for quite a while, and also will see some play in Commander, this is definitely a card that you want to pick up quickly while it's still at a relatively low price. The ceiling on this card may not be that high, perhaps three or four dollars. But if you're planning to play with this card in the near future, this is definitely the time to pick it up.
From a pure investor standpoint, this is a good card to pick up your four copies of right away and sit on for a while. With the standard rotation, this card should only get better. EBay auctions are already showing an average price of around $3 or more. So, this is definitely the time to pick this card up before it becomes not worth buying for pure investment purposes.
As a player, this is just a great card to have if you really like to play control. It's also great if you just like to collect Dinosaurs. All in all this is just a great card to pick up before the supply starts running out.
