Djinn and Juice

Hey there YGO Community,

We did it, we broke 2500 views. And I can't thank you guys enough. You guys/gals make it all worth it. The support I get from y'all far exceeds the hate. And if you've been part of the YGO Community for any real amount of time, you know how much hate, salt, and shade gets thrown around constantly. Without you all, I'd be talking to the walls about what cards to buy. Or worse, talking my friends' ears off. But that's enough. I know I say it a lot, but you guys rock.

1. The Current Trend
With people continuing to prepare for the drop of Nekroz and the hype around the BA Ritual Monster, there are two cards that are going through the roof. They are Djinn Releaser of Rituals and Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands.
Djinn is a rare that when used to make a Ritual Monster, your opponent can't Special Summon. Emptiness is a pretty strong card I guess. Not to mention it's a Level 3 Fiend, so it's Tour Guide-able. That's pretty good if I do say so myself. The card is averaging $9 on TCGPlayer with unlimited copies available for $5+.
Manju has been a staple in Ritual decks since their inception and up until now, they've been pretty cheap. Now the cheapest copy is $5+ on TCGPlayer with DT copies fetching $20+. I'm a seller at $20. Actually, I was a seller at $15, when I moved all of mine. The card is legitimately good, as most tutor cards are, and it shows a lot of promise in Nekroz. But unless you love having the most expensive copies of cards in your deck and plan on playing the deck, I'd stay away from the DT versions.

2. Speculation Targets
This week I'm going to talk briefly about two cards that I consider fine targets to pick up.
A. Mirror of the Ice Barrier
When I first decided on this card, it was $2, two days later, they're $2.50.
Let's start with the good:
It's fairly cheap currently as it's a common.
It's from the legendary Starstrike Blast set, you know the never reprinted set?
It has applications against the boogie man (Nekroz).
Now for the bad:
It's a common that isn't the blow-out against every deck that Vanity's Emptiness is.

I think that at $2.50 though, this card has a lot of potential as a gainer if for no other reason than hype.

B. Royal Command
For those of you who don't know, Royal Command is getting an Errata in AP06 so that its text will match that of its OCG counterpart. Why is that relevant you ask? Because it now negates all effects of Flip monsters, including their effects in grave. For example: the card now stops the Shaddoll “sent to the graveyard by a card effect" effect. That seems really strong if you ask me. I think that if you're going to get yours, now is the time. Ultras are already $9, but commons and rares are still available for $1-3. I like this card if Shaddolls ever become the best deck again. It's another floodgate that they have to answer.

3. What to Dump
It was brought to my attention that the Inzektor Exa-Beetles that I wrote about a few weeks back did in fact spike. I think that if you're not going to play them you should move them to someone who will for a nice little profit.

Shoutout to Jeff Walker for letting me know about the spike.

Keep the juice flowing,
