1Jace, the Mind Sculptor

Feature Detail

Current Price: $87
Pre-Covid Price: $95
Change: $8 decrease

Jace has dropped a small amount. It does see play in a few Modern decks, including Bant, Sultai, and Azorius Control. It’s going to drop a bunch soon though, because it’s being reprinted.

2Misty Rainforest

Feature Detail

Current Price: $84
Pre-Covid Price: $69
Change: $15 increase

Misty Rainforest actually edges out Scalding Tarn as the most expensive Modern land. Despite a secret lair reprinting and COVID, Misty Rainforest has somehow managed to increase in price over the last few months. Simic builds in eternal formats have gained strength thanks to the relatively new cards Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath and Ice-Fang Coatl.
