Wizards of the Coast officially released the Magic: The Gathering set, Theros: Beyond Death, on Jan. 24, 2020. The set features a number of singles that have retained their value, and some that have increased over time.
Several months after the release of THB, the COVID-19 pandemic struck, shutting down tabletop events while the price of most Magic cards plummeted. With the release of Zendikar Rising in the fall of 2020, and Kaldheim (KHM) in 2021, a number of THB cards experienced a revival in price and gameplay across multiple Magic formats.
A couple of the THB booster fun versions are worth over $100, while others are priced between $50 and $100. And several regular versions are still worth over $10.
Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger initially spiked at the start of 2020, climbing over 100 percent in value over the course of a week. Leading up to the 2021 Standard rotation, Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger fell in price for the first time.
The extended-art foil version of Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger is valued at just over $100 while the non-foil version is priced at $36. There is a Secret Lair foil version of the elder giant valued at $68, and the other Showcase versions are priced between $20 and $35. The regular version of Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger is worth around $25.
Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath was banned from the Standard Magic format in 2020. The elder giant was hit with another ban, removing it from the MTG Modern and Pioneer formats. The bans hurt some versions of Uro, but not all.
An extended-art foil version of Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath is worth around $100, and a Secret Lair foil version of the elder giant is valued at around $43. Other Showcase versions are priced between $10 and $30. And the THB regular version of Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath is priced around $13.
