MTG Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths cards worth money

A handful of IKO cards retain value after rotating out of the Standard format.

The 2021 Standard rotation within Magic: The Gathering dropped some Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths card values while others have risen in price over time.

Upon the release of IKO, Companion cards dominated the meta. Prices fluctuated throughout the set’s run in Standard, with a few maintaining value post-2021 Standard rotation. Many of the Triome lands are worth between $10 and $50, depending on the version. And several IKO Godzilla Showcase versions are still worth money while a special version of Winota, Joiner of Forces is worth over $100.

From a cat nightmare to an enchantment that creates shark tokens, here are the IKO cards worth money, according to prices from MTGGoldfish and MTGStocks.
