Returning to a known plane, in this case Kamigawa, allows for a lot of interesting financial opportunities that only present themselves on these revisits. Unlike new planes, we know what to expect; the keywords, the mechanics. There's memory attached.
When this happens and the inevitable targeting of cards based on characters, keywords, mechanics, etc. begins the open market begins to churn and writhe. As this is occurring and people look to enter the fray, what is often overlooked is what is going on at the vendor level in terms of sales numbers and buy price.
Can we, based on trend tracking and available historic data, look to vendors for a cue as to what is going on and what's real? Does this kind of movement also impact their operations and do they respond in kind?
We discuss this week what lessons we can learn about the impact of sales based on leaks and spoilers based on vendor buylists and as well as LGS level markers.
