Quote from FoodChainGoblins »Quote from Zephyr Scarlet »I've seen Invocation Threads of Disloyalty as low as 13€ on MCM. I've got no particular interest them, but they seem super cheap, and not bad at all since they can take a Shadow, a TiTi or a Goyf (lol). Also Shatterstorm is around 20€, and I might get some for Storm to swap for some number of Abrade and other things for the Whir Prison and Affinity matchups. What do you think?
They seem like pretty solid pickups. I've seen them low as well and was considering them my damn self. If I hadn't spent way too much on Magic in the past few months, I'd probably get a go at it (meanwhile I probably will spend elsewhere, lol).
I only started to pick up a few of the Amonkhet/Hour of Devastation Invocations within the last year, after all the lottery cards were pumped and dumped last April. The relevant Expeditions/Masterpieces ended up stabilizing, but the Invocations absolutely tanked after that. I recall selling a Choke and Counterbalance for ~$100 each and re-buying them for ~$25/ea a few months later. When I noticed the majority of Invocations weren't rebounding, I started to pick up copies of anything relevant to Modern/eternal formats that was still sitting under $30, so I ended up with playsets of Entomb, Slaughter Pact, Boil, Chain Lightning, and Shatterstorm, Threads of Disloyalty, Divert, plus some odds and ends.
IMO, there are still quite a few under priced Invocations from Hour of Devastation, especially when you consider WotC terminated the print run early. Yeah, the frames and hieroglyphics are awful, but from a sheer rarity standpoint I'm surprised there are still a handful of them under $20. Solid upside for not much risk.
