Long-Range Missiles: Judge's Familiar

Judge's Familiar, Cursecatcher in the air.

Cursecatcher started low, around $1.00 or $2.00 (less?), it's up near $10 now, close to 6 years later.  This will follow suit in some strong sense.  It's nearly a reprint, but in a way it's strictly better: it has flying.  This is classic power creep: the gambit being loss of tribal merfolk.  This is on its long ascent right now at least on par with Cursecatcher, I have about 50 of them as I type and I hope to nab some more for about $0.50-$0.60 apiece, in the right market right now (eBay), they're up near $1.50.  I suspect they will be up around $4.00 by the end of 2014.  Are we losing Cursecatcher in Modern or Extended soon?  This type of card-slot hand-off just happenned with that worldwake version of wasteland...

I need to figure out playing formats better.  The rotation in and out of formats is an important part of the forecast for a magic card.
