MTG Jumpstart 2022 Reissue Crashes $50 EDH Card!

Among the new Jumpstart 2022 cards arriving in December was a reprint that Commander players badly needed. This is another card that saw a huge spike due to its scarcity once Dominaria United cards were printed to support it. As part of the Demon theme, the card was teased yesterday as one of the Rare cards you can get. Let’s take a look at Seizan, Perverter of Truths, once again!

Seizan, perverter of truth

Seizan was originally printed in Champions of Kamigawa which has been out of print for a long time. Up to this point, this is the only print of Seizan that existed. For a long time, Seizan wasn’t worth much, but that changed with the exit of Dominaria United.

he guarded the apocalypse

If one wondered which Dominaria United card was the trump card in the set, it would be hard to argue against Sheoldred, the Apocalypse. This four-mana Praetor has dominated Standard and Pioneer, and his reign appears to be far from over. The ability to drain your opponent to draw cards is absolutely unprecedented. Between Commander, Standard, and Pioneer (even some fringe modern games), demand has pushed Sheoldred’s price up $50 and beyond, depending on the variant.

Seizan is a great card to have in Sheoldred EDH decks. As is the norm with cards like this that give everyone an edge, if you can find a way to break the parity between the players, the card becomes incredibly powerful. This is actually achieved with Sheoldred. While you can draw three cards and gain four life per turn, your opponents will lose six life instead. Sheoldred also punishes annoying format staples like Rhystic Study.

Market movements

At the height of Seizan’s popularity, the card surpassed a $50 price tag. After its initial peak, supply and demand began to level off, driving the price of paper down to $40. Whereas Seizan’s price was around $8 before pointe, this is an incredible move. The Seizan reissue was only announced yesterday, and the paper is down to approx $23. This is pretty standard for a reissue that had a high price tag based on scarcity. As has been repeatedly mentioned on this site, these are precisely the kind of reprints Wizards of the Coast should be promoting. It allows for easier accessibility to game pieces their players are interested in using. Note that it’s only been a day, so Seizan’s price is likely to drop even more. For this reason, I would wait a while before purchasing this card. There is a chance it will rebound, however.

Rhythmic study

Rhystic Study is another insane staple from EDH reprinted in Jumpstart 2022. This one comes complete with new art of some Strixhaven characters that will have airplane fans going crazy for this card! Anyone who has played a normal amount of Commander has probably come across this one before. Constantly asking players to “pay one” can get very annoying real fast. When players get greedy, you can draw cards and win the game. Ironically, the Sheoldred deck that catapulted Seizan to popularity is one of the best things you can do to compete with this.

Rhystic Study has just been announced, so it is unlikely to have shown a significant impact on the secondary market. It should cause Rhystic Study’s price to drop slightly, but as past Rhystic Study reissues have shown, the card has rebounded extraordinarily quickly. That said, the card has seen a huge decline since October and currently hovers around $35 for its cheapest variant.

Keep an eye out for upcoming spoilers!

Jumpstart 2022 spoiler season has just begun, so these are unlikely to be the end of Commander’s crazy reissues. That said, they’re both huge for the format and should allow players who want these cards to get them for a better price. While I don’t expect Rhystic Study to drop too much in price, Seizan should see a sizable decline, as already hinted by its early market moves. Hopefully Wizards of the Coast will reprint more cards to make them more accessible. Personally, I hope for some of the free Ikoria Commander cards, like Deadly Rollick and Fierce Guardianship, but don’t expect to find them in this product.
