Faerie Rising Updates And Other Price Trends

I’ve been following the price trend of most of the faerie archetype’s pieces and I am not surprised at how much the price went up in just a couple of weeks since I posted this article.

Perhaps, the biggest contributing factor for this would likely be the upcoming PT Born of the Gods Valencia that will be taking place this coming weekend on February 21st to 23rd in Valencia, Spain. However, if you’re going to study the recent winning deck lists in MTGO, the Faerie Archetype is underrepresented. In fact, there were only three players who play the archetype with only one of them taking the top spot.

For reference, here are the deck lists:

As I’ve discussed before, the most probable reason for this would be card availability and with the prices of most faerie pieces skyrocketing, it’s very unlikely that the archetype would be dominating the modern metagame soon. Another possible contributing factor would be that most players are keeping their tech under the wraps for the up-coming tournament.

One thing’s certain though, if multiple copies of Bitterblossom as well as the other deck pieces end up occupying most of the spot in the top 8 of PT Valencia then I wouldn’t be surprised if Bitterblossom hits $80 and Mistbind Clique ending up around $18-20 apiece.

Meanwhile, some cards are also seeing play these days and have their prices rising steadily such as the following:

“As of 02/21/14 2:35 PM”

Apparently, Scapeshift decks are starting to crowd MTGO hence the upward trend on primeval titan’s price. In fact, even the metagame in Mindstorm Games Hobby Shop has a lot of them right now and another local game store named Got Game has a player using the said archetype made it to the top. If Scapeshift decks continue to occupy the top places then it’s very likely that the green titan’s price may go up a notch more.

In fact, in my opinion, Scapeshift decks are good deck choices against decks that depend on swarming their opponents since they’re basically combo decks which rely on a land namely Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, to defeat their opponents like the Valakut decks of old. This means that both Thoughtseize and Inquisiton have no way to remove the deck’s win condition though they can still discard some of the Scapeshift players’ means of reaching their goal. But unless the opponent can kill them fast it’s very likely that the opponent’s future is bleak.

So how about Marsh Flats? Well, there’s another deck that’s also not showing any significant numbers in MTGO events that may also benefit from the unbanning of Bitterblossom and that’s B/W tokens. This is perhaps the highest price that Marsh Flats attained ever since the modern format was established and the same with Fetid Heath and I feel that this has something to do with people who intend to use the B/W tokens archetype this coming weekend.

“Marsh Flats a few hours ago”

In fact, the original stock of Marsh Flats earlier was 5 but in just a few hours, only 2 were left and it won’t be long before SCG restocks again and probably increase its price.

It’s just a day or so before the much anticipated PT Valencia takes place and if you play in the modern format, it would be best that you stay tune to the latest development taking place in the tournament. At this time, it would be more advisable to hold on to the modern cards that you have before selling them and wait for any possible price changes that may occur. Don’t let go of your Primeval Titans and Bitterblossoms yet!

The fact is that not all people are aware of how to properly label envelops and the thing is that it can be troublesome to the post office to send envelops that are not properly labeled. The tips below should be followed if he or she wishes his or her letters to be sent as soon as possible to the right address.

  • Positioning: The envelope should be positioned in a length-wise manner with the front of the envelope where you will be writing is facing you.
  • Return Address: This is important since the post office can always refer to this information in cases where in your letter was not successfully delivered to the recipient. Take note that the return address should be written on the upper left hand corner of the front of the envelope. Take note that this information should occupy at least three lines. The name of the sender, the street address along with the house number and the country, the city and the zip or postal code where the letter should be returned to.
  • Mailing Address: The mailing address on the other hand, should be written on the center of the envelope. Like the return address, it should occupy three spaces; the first space would be the name of the recipient, the second space would be the address of the recipient, the city, while the third should occupy the country, the zip code or postal address of the recipient.

Once you are done, do not forget to put a stamp on the upper-right corner of the envelope. One way to save up costs when using envelops is to get in touch with envelope printing online services.

How To Effectively Clean A Platinum Diamond Ring

All jewelry eventually gets tarnished especially if you do not have any idea how to take care of it. However, the good news is that there is a method that you can follow. There is a way that you can clean your platinum diamond ring that signifies your love to your other half while being able to extend its lifespan.

Step 1: Get a corning ware dish pan and then pour around two cups of water in it. After this, what you do next is to bring the water to a boil. Once it starts boiling, the next thing that you have to do is to put two teaspoons of ammonia and then bring it down to a simmer.

Step 2: Once the water is brought down to a simmer, you can now submerge your ring in it and leave it there for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, you can remove the ring but be careful when doing so. Remember, the ring was submerged in hot water and you might get scalded so it is best that you use a tong to pick it up.

Step 3: Let the ring cool for the time being and then once it has cool down, get a toothbrush that you are not using and then use it to scrub the ring.
