Prices for War of the Spark cards continue to fluctuate following rotation now that the Standard format is balancing itself out.
Unlike previous Magic sets, WotS contained 36 planeswalkers, cards with alternative Japanese art, Eternal-Gods, and powerful legendary cards. In combination with the growth of MTG Arena, War of the Spark exceeded expectations across all formats.
Best MTG War of the Spark valued cards
The value of a Magic: The Gathering card can swing positively or negatively in a single day. War of the Spark cards like Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Teferi, Time Raveler are on the rise thanks to recent bans in Standard. And with the addition of the Pioneer format in Magic and the rising popularity of Commander, these planeswalkers could continue to climb in value leading up to the new year.
Japanese alt-art Liliana, Dreadhorde General
When Magic: The Gathering announced the Japanese alternative art planeswalkers, fans were immediately asking if they’d be available outside of Japan. The hottest one on the market right now is the foil alternative-art Liliana, Dreadhorde General.
Artist Yoshitaka Amano is beloved throughout several fandoms, which is why the foil Liliana alt-art is selling anywhere from $800 to $1,000.
Teferi, Time Raveler
Although it’s hated by Magic: The Gathering players, most can’t argue with the value of having Teferi, Time Raveler in top-tier decks. Little Teferi is an easy three-drop that synergizes well with others and silences the power of instants.
Little Teferi didn’t see much play in Standard post-rotation. But following the recent bans, Teferi, Time Raveler is relevant once again. The controlling planeswalker is also used plenty in other Magic formats, increasing his value to around $21.50.
Liliana, Dreadhorde General
Liliana, Dreadhorde General has proven her worth across multiple formats in Magic and is thriving in Standard once again. As a top-end planeswalker who can finish off matches, Liliana is valued at around $17. With Mythic Championship VII approaching, her price could climb back to $20 in the near future.
Finale of Devastation
Finale of Devastation was having a good run until the recent Standard bans of Oko, Veil of Summer, and Once Upon a Time. Prior to the bans it was priced at around $13 but is now valued just under $11.
Nicol Bolas Dragon-God
Nicol Bolas Dragon-God is a planeswalker that is still played in a variety of Magic formats. The dragon won’t likely ever hit $20 again but won’t drop in price either. Nicol Bolas Dragon-God is valued at around $10.
Karn, the Great Creator
Karn, the Great Creator saw a significant rise in value after the release of M20 but isn’t seeing much play in Standard. Pioneer rose the planeswalker value some, but it has since fallen to around $7.
God-Eternal Kefnet was hot when M20 released but quickly dropped below $5. Mono-Blue, however, is making a comeback in Standard 2020. And with the addition of Pioneer, Kefnet has risen out of price obscurity to around $6.
Once priced at $17 via digital, Gideon fell to a couple of dollars but remains valuable in tabletop. Gideon Blackblade is still sitting in the top 10, valued at $6.
Nissa, Who Shakes the World
Nissa, Who Shakes the World has always been a powerful planeswalker in the Standard meta. Following the ban of Oko, she has risen in value some to around $6.
