I dropped by my LGS last night (3rd July 2015) to pick 3 packs of MM2015, and I was informed that Magic Origins pre-release is on next Friday!  Registration fee is about $25 USD, and it comes with a pre-release kit.   The pre-release kit contains a particular color seed booster and 6 magic origins booster packs.   The image of planewalker of that color will be printed in the pre-release kit. Being a budget MTG collector, I decided to purchase two release kits.  Which color should I choose?  One is definitely my favourite color after MM2015 i.e. Green.  The other color is still up in the air.  Then, I thought maybe I could decide based on their financial value.  Thus, I did a break down of all the mythic and rares for each color.

The price listed is based on the average price in tcgplayer as of 5th July 2015.

BLUE is surprisingly low in value.  Do let me know if I miss any valuable mythic or rares.  RED has second highest value, after GREEN.  However, the BLACK planewalker, Liliana, is more attractive to me. 🙂  Thus, I chose BLACK as my second color in the pre-release. I hope this will help you on choosing your color for magic Origins pre-release.  Enjoy the game! Thanks!
