A Magic: The Gathering set has arrived in the Standard format that’s full of folklore spells and fairy tale creatures.
Containing 269 cards, the Throne of Eldraine (ELD) set features new styled cards and spells that have caused a major shift in the MTG Standard metagame. ELD also features Adventure creatures, a Food mechanic, and lots of Knights.
Following the release of Theros: Beyond Death, certain ELD singles have gained massive amounts of value while others have dipped drastically in price. Brazen Borrower remains at the top, but artifacts like Embercleave have rejoined the top three. And despite being banned across multiple Magic formats, Oko, Thief of Crowns remains in the top five.
Here are the top ELD cards worth money.
Brazen Borrower (Mythic Rare)
Following the ban of Oko, Brazen Borrower rose to almost $23. Since then, the faerie rogue jumped up to around $25 and is now valued at around $24. UW is seeing a good amount of play in Standard and Brazen Borrower fits builds within formats like Commander and Pioneer as well.
Embercleave (Mythic Rare)
Once a $5 Legendary Artifact, Embercleave rose dramatically in price thanks to Mythic Championship V. But it dropped to around $14 shortly after. Mono-Red Aggro is on the loose again in Standard, propelling Embercleave back up to around $20 following the Magic World Championship.
Fabled Passage (Rare)
Fabled Passage is the new Evolving Wilds and has value in Standard, Pioneer, Commander, and Modern formats. Just about every multicolored deck is finding a spot for Fabled Passage. Fabled Passage started off under $10 and then jumped to over $20. The land card saw a brief drop down to $17 but has recently risen to $19.
The Great Henge (Mythic Rare)
The Great Henge was one of the best artifacts in the ELD set. It had trouble being played in Standard but found traction and rose to around $16. Since the release of THB, it’s on the rise once again, valued at around $18. Expect The Great Henge to push $20 in the coming weeks before possibly settling back down between $16 and $18.
Oko, Thief of Crowns (Mythic Rare)
Despite being banned in every major MTG format, Oko somehow has maintained a decent amount of value. Once almost $60, it dropped to around $17 and is now priced at $15. But its value continues to decrease at a slow pace every week, meaning it may drop down to $10 in the near future.
Questing Beast (Mythic Rare)
Questing Beast was projected to be one of the best cards in the ELD set. It lived up to its reputation at Mythic Championship V but fell off the radar following the release of THB. Since then, considering the lack of planeswalkers seeing gameplay in Magic formats, Questing Beast has fallen to around $15.
Its value could climb once again, though, depending on how planeswalkers in Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths affect the Standard format.
The Royal Scions (Mythic Rare)
The Royal Scions missed the boat in Standard but were still seeing a good amount of play in Pioneer and Commander. But following the release of THB, the planeswalker twins dropped to around $10. And in recent weeks, it’s fallen further, priced at around $8 with a six-percent decrease in just the past week.
