Evaluating Card Rarity

2 posts in this topic

Can you think of a way to objectively rank cards by rarity across all editions? Price obviously comes to mind but there are also, obviously, other factors that contribute to price. So is there a way to adjust for that and just assess card rarity, without official numbers?

It´s very hard to know without having official numbers. Usually if a card is played in the various formats it goes up in price. For example, I was just checking the price of a card from Aether Revolt and noticed it had spiked in price by 5 dollars. At a first glance nothing had changed but as it turns out it has been played in Commander decks. If you have a good knowledge of what might be playable in other formats, maybe you can rank them for yourself even though in a very superficial way.
