Hi, planning to buy some fiery islet and sunbaked canyon to complete my mono red prowess deck. Both are hovering around 10-15 dollars each. Should I buy now, or would these drop further in price?

I thought I saw them cheaper than that. I always thought I'd spec on the Horizon lands some day and I ended up seeing good prices on FB.

I bought a bunch of Nurturing Peatland, Fiery Islet, Waterlogged Grove, and Silent Clearing for between $4.20-7.50 each. The seller on FB was Aldrin Ganac on the Magic the Gathering FS group. I wouldn't pay $10-15, although I do think that they will be much more than that long-term.
Standard - Will pick up what's good when paper starts
Pre Modern - Do not own anymore
Pioneer - MBA, UB Inverter
Modern - Amulet Titan, Elementals, Yawmoth Chord, Uroza
Legacy - No more cards, will rebuy Sneak Show when I can
Limited - Will start when paper starts
Commander - Nope

checked the prices some days ago. Wanted a few copies of Skyclave Apparition... and surprised, the thing is 8-10 dollars already. I guess the card is being used by a lot of people..

that card is basically played in standard, modern and legacy so I wouldn't expect it to drop much below that.

I managed to get 2 foil copies of Dark Confidant yesterday. Pretty happy with that

Prices of any one card also depend on the price of the rest of the box for in print boxes in plentiful supply. Apparition sucks up a fair chunk of the price because a lot of other cards in its box are cheap
It is a widely played card, and has nestled into 3 formats with some use.
, as pointed out above, I agree it won't go down....

yeah, would have to bite the price if I would fnm again. The opponent not getting back what was exiled makes it good.

it's surprising how prices of some cards dropped. Noble Hierarch is only a 10 dollar card now, I remember this thing being 50 something only a year ago.
