Burning all my money to build Nekroz

So I’ve come to the decision that I will build the Nekroz deck. After buying 3 boxes and pulling 2 of the rarest and most expensive card (Nekroz of Brionac, currently at $129) I feel fate is telling me something. However, I have limits and the same limits that made me resist buying a play-set of Thoughtseize at $19 a card, also makes me hesitant to buy a play-set of Nekroz of Valkurus for $68 each.

Though the simple fact is card prices are never stable in Yugioh (in Magic also, but there’s a huge difference). In Yugioh a card’s price tends to be very high:

  • After its initial release
  • After a Pre-Release of the Set
  • Both during and after the deck that uses the card tops a Major Event (YCS or ARG)

Otherwise as more people open the set and list the card online, the supply of the card goes up and the price goes down. In Magic the Gathering similar logic applies. The price of Magic card tends to be very high:

  • After its initial release
  • After a Pre-Release of the Set
  • Both during and After an event that the card does well
  • The card starts seeing play in Modern, Legacy or Commander/EDH

I’ll go in-depth with this at a later time. The simple fact is Brionace has dropped from $170 to $130 in the span of 2 weeks. I fully believe Trishula ans Valkurus will follow suit and then hopefully I can buy them both for a more reasonable price. Thanks for reading. There will many more announcements in the coming days. Stay tuned!
