These are the ten best-selling cards from the week leading up to the Pro Tour, and, of course, during the Pro Tour itself. Let's hit it.

Ramunap Red had a positive showing at this event, and all the successful lists featured Rampaging Ferocidon out of the sideboard. It's a powerful, evasive little beater that's good against a whole lotta decks.

Arguel's Blood Fast features most prominently as a one- or two-of in some Standard sideboards, so you gotta assume that its strong sales are a result of casual players looking to get in on some sweet Diamond Valley action.

#8: Chart a Course

Chart a Course saw a ton of Standard play at the Pro Tour, and for good reason. The card is great!

There weren't a ton of Kitesail Freebooters flying around at the Pro Tour, but it's still a disruptive element on a reasonably-costed body. And it flies! How bad can a disruptive Storm Crow be?

There was a mono-white vampires deck at Pro Tour Ixalan that got a lot of press, and you better believe it featured Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle.

Next up is Champion of Rhonas, and, uh… yeah! I couldn't find a deck that plays this card. Anywhere. So, uh… if you know who's playing Champion of Rhonas, let me know in the comments!

Opt, however—it seems like everyone's playing Opt. And why not? Just like Chart a Course, it's a good rate for what it does, but unlike Chart a Course, it slots into far more blue decks.

A white-blue God-Pharaoh's Gift deck finished second at Pro Tour Ixalan, getting narrowly beaten out by Seth Manfield and his horde of Glint-Sleeve Siphoners. All weekend, Pascal Maynard dunked on fools out of nowhere with Refurbish plus God-Pharaoh's Gift, and buyers wanted to recreate that magic themselves.

#2: Merfolk Branchwalker

Merfolk Branchwalker continues to sell well—the blue-green merfolk deck is still novel, and Merfolk Branchwalker itself is pretty cheap.

However, the number-one seller this week is Unclaimed Territory. It features prominently in the five-color Humans deck that's been popping up in Modern, but that deck isn't driving this many sales all by itself. Unclaimed Territory is a testament to casual players and how much they influence markets.

And that's all we've got for today, but fear not! We do one of these every Monday, rain or shine, and if you liked this, you should subscribe to our YouTube channel. Seth Manfield makes a video every week, and that dude just won a Pro Tour. So yeah. Subscribe!

See you next Monday.
