My comments are specifically about the most recent examples of notoriety. (Moat, Null Rod, LED, CoT, Cradle)

What your friend is describing is not what others would call a spike. I presumed you were talking about the *actual* spikes and not just a increase in demand. Such as the price spike of blue duals in February when EMA was announced.

Demonic Tutor is cheap. What price spike? Look at the slope on the price of DT compared to blue duals over the last 5 years. It will illustrate for you what a spike looks like and you'll understand DT has not 'spiked'.

The same demand is not put on legacy staples as DT. DT is restricted in Vintage, a largely unplayed format by comparison. Cradle is not only more in demand because of the relative popularity of legacy but also because you can play 4 of them.

I have very serious reservations in believing that more people want duals for EDH than for legacy. He "speculates"? What does that mean to him, to you?
I think that the announcement of EMA spiked duals and that the release of Commander products did not.
I think that you need more duals to play in legacy than you do in EDH. Not only that, but the ABUR duals are significantly less mandatory/powerful in EDH than they are in vintage/legacy and any deck can easily do without unless they are of the most well tuned decks possible, which i hope i can safely say is not common in a format that is primarily viewed as casual.

Personally I'd say the price point where duals "really took off" was when they were past 25 bucks.

I presumed you were being sarcastic and meant any RL low-value card. Look at Polar Kraken and Narwhal. You would not have been the first to be actually be scared of something like that.
