SCG and TCG has doubled the price of their Scalding Tarns and Misty Rainforests. 35 bucks. Anyone got any info on why?

Modern seasons + GP's.

You think the price will sustain after the season?

As long as they are not reprinted, yes.

It's a good idea to get them in foils now before their prices catch up.

Wow. That's an increase. Glad I already have mine.

Why only the blue fetchies?

Delver, Storm, and UW midrange decks, also they're blue.

Hm, is this a valid point? In the "Modern Banned List" thread you can read, Jund would dominate the metagame. I would assume Verdant Catacombs would be the winner fetchland, price-wise.
However, I don't really follow the metagame development, so I might be wrong.

This, they are a Legacy staple as much as a Modern staple, despite having a higher supply, being a staple in two formats the price jump was inevitable

Also many Modern decks use these fetches as well, I was quite surprised it took this long to reach that high of a price tbh

Ben and Co. bought out every vendor on the lower half of TCG's price list. That's why the spike. The prices will drop a bit as long as it was a one-time deal by SCG, but they have enormous influence over the market.

I have seen places where you can still find tarns for 25. So they have come back down a tad but still.

I'm glad I got my playsets when they were still less than 20 a pop. Everyone loves blue regardless of the format.

I wish I had been a bit more proactive. I picked up Tarns and 2 Mistys when they were cheap and now need 2 more Mistys for modern.

I still don't understand why they spiked recently. The shocklands have been legal since Modern's inception, Modern Masters isn't out yet, and I haven't seen a large rise in RUG decks in any format.

I'm trying now to get all missing blue fetchlands. Thankfully it may be a matter of 2 weeks and cost less than I think. I had some new ones but I haven't imagined that someone will push the prize so high. I think that from now on I would rather buy cards few weeks/months after prerelease than after someone's prize push even if I think "that can't happen (again)".
