The most noticeable trend on the Top 25 Sealed Products Chart for April (see "TCGplayer Top 25 Sealed TCG Products - April 2021") was that Magic: The Gathering reasserted its dominance as the top TCG again by getting back to the #1 slot. Strixhaven's Mystical Archive slot (see "Wizards of the Coast Releases Initial Product Details on 'Magic: The Gathering' 'Strixhaven: School of Mages'") in packs was apparently big hit with fans, and prompted the sales of more sealed product. Draft Boosters, which had been lagging in sales a little for Standard sets since Zendikar Rising, benefitted from the inclusion of the Mystical Archive cards in these packs and made a strong showing to claim the #7 slot on the chart. Strixhaven Draft Boosters also increased in value over the course of the month by about 5%.TCGplayer Top 25 Sealed TCG Products - March 2021"), which means it had a solid preorder leading up to its April 16 release date.

Flesh and Blood and Digimon CG both remained on the charts, and Dragon Ball Super TCG made an appearance at the #24 with Supreme Rivalry Booster Box via its preorder sales (see "The Battle Between Barbarians and Sayan Warriors Explodes in 'Dragon Ball Super: Card Game'"). It is notable that Flesh and Blood Monarch 1st Edition boxes went up in value about 9% from $409.34 to $446.96, which may be speculation over supply versus demand due to shipping concerns (see "'Flesh and Blood TCG' 'Monarch' Set Gets Delayed").
