(All figures in this article are taken from the actual Auction House Sold Data provided by Hex Ent., comparing the average price between April 1st – April 30st with the average price between May 1st – May 31st 2016. They are displayed from the highest to lowest change in terms of Standard Deviations, all with a change above 1.00 Standard Deviation for Winners and above 1.60 Standard Deviation for Losers – not highlighting Set 4 cards for Losers as their April prices only represent the first few days of release and are naturally inflated. Cards with starting or ending values below $0.40 are also not highlighted.)

He had enjoyed reasonable success in Limited formats of MTGO before permanently switching to Hex. Itemization as well as figuring out the intricacies of TCG economies are his other areas of interest.
