Before Iconic Masters, Thought Scour hadn't been printed since 2014, and since it's a key part of a couple Modern decks, demand for it is high. Now that there's a reprint, players can finally get their hands on this delve-enabling, graveyard-filling card.

Lightning Strike's been near the top of our best-sellers since Ixalan came out. The fact that it was in an Invitational-winning Temur Energy deck puts it over the top this week.

Like an extreme version of Thought Scour, Mishra's Bauble was in short supply and high demand. Thanks to its appearance in Iconic Masters, now everyone can afford to play a 56-card deck.

I don't know how big the margins are on uncommons, but if you can pick them up for close to nothing, they are remarkably easy to move. Kitesail Freebooter has been a reliable seller for months.

#10: Unclaimed Territory

Same with Unclaimed Territory. I will say that it helps that these cards are great in Modern too.

#9: Merfolk Branchwalker

You can definitely lump in Merfolk Branchwalker in with these. It's a good, tribal card, but its role in the new blue-green Merfolk Modern deck put it over the top.

#8: Faerie Miscreant

I'll come clean—I have no clue why Faerie Miscreant, of all things, is selling well. My guess is that players are banking on Rivals of Ixalan supporting either Faeries or Rogues, or people just really like the mono-blue Pauper deck. I have no clue. I'm open to ideas.

#7: Kumena's Speaker

Kumena's Speaker, like Merfolk Branchwalker, also plays a huge part in making the blue-green Merfolk deck competitive in Modern.

However, the best-selling cards are pre-sales of the Unstable basics. I expect these cards to be on top of things for a long, long time, so get used to it.
