It seems like a number of Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms cards will remain valued at over $10 following the set’s global release.
The Standard-legal MTG set will be released on July 23. Tiamat is ranked at the top, despite a recent price drop, while cards like The Book of Exalted Deeds and Xanathar, Guild Kingpin are on the rise. And the only planeswalker that looks like it will survive a dip in price following the official release of AFR is Lolth, Spider Queen.
Here are the top MTG cards worth money from the AFR set.
Tiamat is a five-color Legendary dragon in AFR with a rarity of Mythic Rare. The five-headed dragon is a shoo-in for the Commander format. Priced at around $40 pre-tabletop release, Tiamat has dramatically dropped to around $28.
Old Gnawbone is a Limited bomb that will also have an impact on the Commander format. The Legendary Flying 7/7 dragon was priced at around $25 prior to the global AFR release. Old Gnawbone rose about $5 following the global release and then fell again. The Legendary dragon is once again around $25.
Demilich is a unique Mythic Rare in the color Blue that will likely find a home in multiple Magic formats. The skeleton wizard was priced at around $23 following the AFR digital release. A slight decrease in value followed the tabletop launch, with Demilich valued around $22.
The Book of Exalted Deeds
Expected to impact multiple Magic formats, The Book of Exalted Deeds is a Mono-White Legendary Artifact. The Mythic Rare Artifact was priced at around $12 leading up to the AFR tabletop release. Shortly after launch, The Book of Exalted Deeds climbed to around $15, where it looks like it might remain for some time.
Inferno of the Star Mounts
A bomb in Limited and potentially a top Standard card, Inferno of the Star Mounts is a Mythic Rare six-drop. The dragon can’t get countered upon casting and was worth around $18 leading up to the AFR global launch. Following the global release, Inferno of the Star Mounts fell to around $14.50.
Lolth, Spider Queen
Lolth, Spider Queen is one of five AFR planeswalkers. Lolth is a Black five-drop priced at around $18 prior to the set’s global launch. Similar to Inferno of the Star Mounts, Lolth, Spider Queen also fell, stabilizing at around $14.
Xanathar, Guild Kingpin
Xanathar, Guild Kingpin is a Legendary Beholder that will easily find a home within the Commander format. The Beholder is a six-drop in Blue and Black that started at around $12 and rose to around $15. Following the AFR release, Xanathar, Guild Kingpin is priced around $13.
Lymrith, Desert Doom
Lymrith, Desert Doom is a Mythic Rare Legendary Blue dragon. Expected to have an impact on the Standard meta, the dragon is priced at around $12.50 following the AFR digital release.
Circle of Dreams Druid
Ramp in Green comes via Circle of Dreams Druid, a Rare 2/1 elf druid with a “Tap” ability that produces one Green mana for each creature you control. The elf druid was priced at around $18 heading into the global release of AFR. Circle of Dreams took a big hit following the launch, valued at around $10.
Zariel, Archduke of Avernus
Zariel, Archduke of Avernus is a Red planeswalker within the AFR set. Slotting into BG Sacrifice within Standard and multiple Commander builds, the Red planeswalker was valued at around $10.50 prior to the AFR global release on July 23. Like most planeswakers, Zariel fell to around $6.50 following the tabletop launch.
