One of the hosts of a Magic podcast I listen to had Herald of Secret Streams pegged as a potential contender in Standard during Ixalan preview season. I won't say who it is in order to spare them the embarrassment, but Herald of Secret Streams remains a neat card that is perfectly capable of tearing up Friday Night Magic.

The fact that Gifted Aetherborn trades cleanly with all the Bristling Hydras floating around is a point in its favor, and many players are turning to it in their black decks for just that reason.

Modern is littered with decks that bring Aven Mindcensor in post-sideboard. Trust me, wrecking your opponents' fetch-land and getting a 2/1 flier is a great feeling.

Chart a Course is going to continue to be relevant as long as God-Pharaoh's Gift decks are a thing, and boy howdy are they a thing.

Remember that time they attached a Lightning Helix to a 4/5 trampler for four mana and no one played it? No, you don't remember, because that card is totally nuts and everyone played it. Lightning Helix is pretty good too.

When it was in Standard, Thran Dynamo won back-to-back World Championships in the hands of Kai Budde and Jon Finkel. That's just good pedigree.

Now that Mishra's Bauble isn't a bajillion dollars anymore, the card is selling like hotcakes. Its pricetag will bottom out soon and then start to slowly creep back up over a long stretch of time, as uncommons from Masters sets tend to do.

Kitesail Freebooter's seen play all over the map in Standard thanks to its aggressive, disruptive nature and low price tag.

I always used to say that Unclaimed Territory's sales was a testament to the power of casual cards, but the card sees so much play in Modern that that's no longer the case.

But the best-selling card for what feels like the billionth week in a row is Opt! Seeing more cards for a small amount of mana is good, it seems.

That's it for this week. See you next time.
