Video Transcript

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and good night, wherever you are. I'm Jon Corpora, managing editor of magic.tcgplayer.com, and these are the best selling cards since Monday, so kick back, relax, and enjoy the show.

With the rise of red decks, it only makes sense that the ultimate anti-red sideboard card that's also red itself would enjoy a jump in sales. Chandra's Defeat is the ultimate mana-efficient answer to the red deck, killing everything but Hazoret, the Fervent.

With all the haste creatures in mono-red, the deck can have some pretty big attacks out of nowhere. One of the best facilitators of these huge swings is Ahn-Crop Crasher, neutralizing a blocker and getting in big damage, all in one card.

God-Pharaoh's Gift fell off at the Pro Tour and hasn't done anything since then, but it's likely the card will come back when the metagame takes more of a shift to hate out mono-red — in an environment like that, God-Pharaoh's Gift really shines.

Sure, you can call Bomat Courier a Raging Goblin, but it's probably the best Raging Goblin ever printed. Pro Tour winner Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa sang its praises in his tournament report this week, claiming he drew six cards with it at one point. Definitely sign me up for that.

Scavenger Grounds doesn't require a spell spot, can be searched up with Hour of Promise or Traverse the Ulvenwald, and stops graveyard strats dead in their tracks. It's a good one.

Mirage Mirror is more for the casual gamer, but I've seen it do some gnarly stuff in Limited, which usually means it's got some potential in Constructed.

Ah, Earthshaker Khenra, the card that mono-red couldn't exist without. This card would be great even without the eternalize keyword, but that just puts it over the edge. The eternalize cycle of rares is so cool.

The Hour of Devastation full-art basics made a big comeback this week—all five landed on the top 10.

Ah, Ramunap Ruins, the other card that mono-red couldn't exist without. The fact that a deck with so much damage baked into its manabase alone exists totally reshapes how matchups between two long-standing archetypes traditionally work. Control decks can no longer stabilize at low life behind a wall of countermagic—they'll just get burned out by lands. Slower decks need a good chunk of lifegain to be relevant, and it's because of Ramunap Ruins.

But the number-one seller, for seemingly the billionth time, is Abrade. It's not efficient against the mono-red deck, but it's a house against literally everything else, which makes it good enough for the top spot this week.

That wraps things up for this week. This weekend's got some Standard and Modern action, so I'll see you Monday.
