Wizards of the Coast officially released its new Magic: The Gathering set, Theros: Beyond Death, on Jan. 24. The set features several singles that players can cash in for a quick buck.
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, prices leveled out somewhat. With the release of Kaldheim (KHM) in 2021, a number of THB cards are experiencing a revival in price and gameplay across multiple Magic formats.
From elder giants to gods, here are the top THB cards worth money.
Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath
Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath was banned from the Standard Magic format in September 2020. The elder Giant is still seeing gameplay in Historic, along with Modern and Pioneer, and is still the most valuable THB card. It was once valued at around $50 and is priced at $42 upon the release of KHM.
Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger
Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger initially spiked back in February, climbing over 100 percent in value over the course of a week, and remains playable in multiple Magic formats. With the release of ZNR, the elder giant wasalued at around $17, and has climbed to around $20.50 with the release of KHM. Slotting nicely into the Standard Rakdos build, Kroxa, Titan of Death’s Hunger may increase in value over the coming weeks.
Mono-White had a strong return in Standard with the release of THB, thanks to Heliod, Sun-Crowned. The Theros God rose in value that topped $30 at one point and then dropped to around $12. Following fall rotation, Heliod, Sun-Crowned began to increase in value once again. At the release of KHM, the THB God was priced at around $18.50, slotting into several Commander and Historic builds.
Nyxbloom Ancient dropped to around $12 shortly after the release of THB. The release of IKO and ZNR has improved the elemental creature’s value with it priced at around $18. And with the release of KHM, Nyxbloom Ancient is still valued at around $18. Mana ramp isn’t fading off anytime soon and neither should the price of Nyxbloom Ancient.
Dryad of the Ilysian Grove
Dryad of Ilysian Grove had decreased in value, to around $7.50, before the release of ZNR. It rose to around $11, and continued to rise steadily into 2021. At the release of KHM, Dryad of Ilysian Grove is valued at around $14. The Nymph is mostly played in four and five colored Commander decks and shouldn’t decrease in value anytime soon.
Thassa, Deep Dwelling, much like Heliod, reached a height of almost $30 upon the release of THB. It didn’t last long, however, and the sea god dropped to around $15. With the release of ZNR Thassa, Deep Dwelling is priced at around $11 and has maintained its price into 2021. Played predominatly in Commander decks, Thassa, Deep Dwelling was valued at around $11.50 with the release of KHM.
Klothys, God of Destiny
Klothys, God of Destiny had at one point dropped so much in value that the god was no longer worthy of being listed as an M21 card worth money. But since the release of ZNR, and fall rotation, the Gruul god has become relevant again. The launch of KHM has once again opened the door for the God to see gameplay via Standard, in addition to Historic and Commander. Klothys, God of Destiny is valued at around $9.
