New secret lair Alert!
Posted on April 15, 2022, 12:15 p.m. by RNR_Gaming
Anyways with that whole kickstarter thing going on I noticed that the professor hasn't made a video so in case anyone was wondering
Some regular guys non-foil/foil
Void Winnower - 16.07/20.46
Vengevine - 10.71/12.95
Collector Ouphe - 5.63/33.07
Goblin Settler - 48.71/N/a
Non foil: 81.12 Foil: 115.19
Foil: B / non-foil: C+
There's a good bit of value with this secret lair. Goblin settlers getting its' first foil printing is definitely noteworthy. Also, if you're into the Adventure Time art style you'll like be picking this up anyways.
Showcase: Streets of New Capenna
Atraxa, Praetors' Voice - 30.77/35.53
Breya, Etherium Shaper - 7.98/9.84
Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder - N/A/8.84
Non-foil: 47.59 foil: 54.21
Non-foil - D foil: C-
This grade pains me because I REALLY think the art on these is beautiful and they'll likely include a Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis in the same style as a bonus card but putting personal preferance and speculation aside the value just is not here.
Special Guest: Matt Jukes Foil Edition
Glacial Fortress - 3.71/11.25
Drowned Catacomb - 7.28/17.46
Dragonskull Summit - 3.79/6.96
Rootbound Crag - 3.81/6.55
Sunpetal Grove - 3.89/5.96
Non-foil: 22.48 foil: 48.18
Non-foil - F foil - D-
The value in these really speaks for itself.
Artist Series: Magali Villeneuve
Mother of Runes - 4.91/Varies
Death's Shadow - 6.12/10.19
Elvish Mystic - .45/9.97
Forest - N/A
Non-foil - 11.48 Foil: N/A
Non-foil - F Foil - D-
The biggest thing out of this lair is the foil Mother of Runes the prices fluctuates so much with the older foils it's hard to set an exact price to obtain a foil one; if we look at the previous secret lairs those versions of Mother of Runes are sitting at about 6-10 a piece.
Artist Series: Sidharth Chaturvedi
Concordant Crossroads - 46.87/N/A
Nomad Outpost - 1.06/5.74
Ghost Quarter - 1.12/16.90
Island - N/A
Non-foil: 49.05 foil: 69.51
Non-foil: D- foil: C
Essentially this lair is being carried by the fact that Concordant Crossroads only has 1 printing and has never had a foil printing. If you need one or would like to get a foil one knows your chance but outside of that its just some bulky cards with nice art.
Artist Series: Wayne Reynolds
Sram, Senior Edificer - .25/6.09
Torbran, Thane of Red Fell - .95/1.89
Depala, Pilot Exemplar - .23/1.65
Balthor the Defiled - 10.95/59.61
Non-foil: 12.38 Foil: 69.24
Non-foil - F Foil - C
This lair is also being carried by 1 card that has only 1 printing the rest is bulk.
Finally! Left-Handed Magic Cards
Sisay, Weatherlight Captain - .98/6.02
Empress Galina - 18.31/206.82
Geralf's Messenger - 9.89/34.48
Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh - .26/.41
Garruk, Caller of Beasts - 8.20/23.41
Non-foil: 37.64 foil; 271.14
Non-foil - C Foil: A
While Empress Galina is definitely the chase card out of this; it still has value in the other slots too outside of Roger - but even Roger is still highly playable.
Anyways, after doing all the math and putting this all together I appreciate the professor doing this and compiling it a video format. Also, which secret lairs if any are you planning to get?
I will be grabbing some number between 1 and 4 of "Artist Series: Sidharth Chaturvedi" because I need Crossroads, possibly a "Showcase: Streets of New Capenna" because the art is pretty and possibly a "Some Regular Guys" for speculation purposes. Realistically it is probably going to end up being 2 "Artist Series: Sidharth Chaturvedi" and nothing else.

Gidgetimer - I'm in the same boat. Definitely want the showcases and some of the chase cards are getting me. The art is so good in some of them I just cannot resist.
Also, I realized the professor posted his video minutes after I posted mine lol...some of my info was wrong about Concordant Crossroads but I feel the ratings I gave were pretty close to wjsy he gave.

Ha, well RNR_Gaming if you and the prof are on the same page, that's a good thing. Great minds, thinking alike : ) Must be.
Really though, I am feeling better about secret lairs than I was before, dare I say, dare I say it : ) These all seem to be reprints, and some very welcome reprints. Maybe it's the contrary part of me, but when they print unique cards in SL, or not real reprints of things that desperately need reprints, it feels like they want to pressure you into something, which is a major turn off. As someone who is already in and down with buying things at times, I want to feel like I want to buy something new, not that I am wanted to buy something new, if that makes sense : ) So this list is actually kinda nice. Not mind blowing or anything, but looking at the list it's like, yeah, that's a decent group of cards.
Though, maybe they've dulled my senses a bit too. If there's no blatant crap like Rick, then it all seems the better.

Niko9 - at least with their new policy thing the exclusive commanders are just skins and are typically you're going to get them after the physical magic card is in circulation.
