Lab Value is how we remove outliers and auctions that did not have bids on them because they are overpriced. To determine Lab Value we take the cheapest 25% of the cards final sale price (not BIN) and we find the average value of those cards. This ensures cards with artificially high prices (100k MT emerald that didn’t sell e.g.) are not factored into our Lab Value.

In addition, premium will allow you to enter our weekly pack opening drawings and gets you access to the card shot speed chart that will allow you to pick cards whose jump shots all have the same timing, making shooting easier. Sign up to support this project and future projects like these.
We have set up a network of Xbox’s and PS4’s that run 24/7 scanning the auction houses and recording data points. While we cannot guarantee that we are recording every single auction we can say that we are collecting hundreds of thousands of data points each week.
