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)

A new set is coming to Magic: The Gathering in the Standard format, full of folklore spells and fairy tale creatures that are worthy return on an initial investment.   The Throne of Eldraine (ELD) set releases on Oct. 4, and with it comes Standard rotation. Containing 269 cards, the set features new styled cards and spells with the potential to cause a major metagame shift. Also included in ELD are Adventure creatures, a Food mechanic, and lots of Knights.   Because Throne of Eldraine is releasing at the same time as fall rotation in Standard, many of its cards have the potential to be worth more. In addition, the set includes special art and borderless cards that will also have an increased value on the open market. For now, however, here are the top 10 ELD cards that are valued at $10 and up.   Oko, Thief of Crowns (Mythic Rare)  Leading the pack in the number one spot of ELD cards worth money is Oko, Thief of Crowns. With only three planeswalkers in the set (not including planeswalker decks), it’s not a surprise to find Oko valued at around $24 right now. Whether Oko Thief of Crowns will remain this high is unknown to the little value (other than creating Food tokens) he has as a planeswalker.   Questing Beast (Mythic Rare)   Questing Beast is one of the best Standard cards in the ELD set. Likely to overtake Oko at some point, it’s valued at around $20. Able to fit into a variety of archetypes, Questing Beast should hold its value post-release.   Brazen Borrower (Mythic Rare)   Flash decks are hot in Standard and Brazen Borrower is a solid Adventure three-drop, or two-drop should a player choose to cast Petty Theft. Valued at around $19, the faerie rogue has dropped slightly in price as the release of ELD gets closer. Brazen Borrower might drop some more but should remain in the top ten.   The Royal Scions (Mythic Rare)   On the battlefield, it’s unknown if The Royal Scions will have an impact on Standard. As a Mythic Rare planeswalker, however, the twins are valued at around $16 for now. The ELD card seems like a bust at first glance but could find its worth once the set is fully released.   Garruk, Cursed Huntsman (Mythic Rare)   Garruk, Cursed Huntsman is likely the best planeswalker in the ELD set. With the MTG community waiting for Garruk to return to Standard for some time now, his valued price at around $15 should remain consistent.   Once Upon a Time (Rare)  Considered the best card to come out of the Throne of Eldraine set, Once Upon a Time will see play in a variety of MTG formats. Because of this (and being a Rare) it’s valued at around $15 and could climb higher post-release.   Murderous Rider (Rare)  A Knight tribal theme is a definite possibility, especially in Mardu, and Murderous Rider is an Adventure card that will find a spot in several Knight decks. As a three-drop that is removal (including planeswalkers) and/or a creature with lifelink, Murderous Rider is priced appropriately at around $12.  The Great Henge (Mythic Rare)   In a “go-wide” or Green stompy deck with plenty of mana dorks, The Great Henge will likely see a decent amount of play in Standard. Able to cantrip and add counters, expect the Great Henge to grow past its value of around $12. Plus, it can also tap for an additional two mana while providing lifegain as well.   Robber of the Rich (Mythic Rare)   Robber of the Rich has a decent amount of potential in Standard. It’s valued at around $12 and should remain above $10 post-release. Despite its minor restrictions, Robber of the Rich is a versatile card. It can steal an opponent’s card off the top of their library, and it has Reach and Haste as a two-drop 2/2 creature.   Fabled Passage (Rare)  As the new Evolving Wilds in Standard, Fabled Passage has value due to the reduced number of dual lands and mana dorks (Llanowar Elves). Not only will it get played in Standard but other MTG formats, like Commander. Fabled Passage is valued at about $10 but could climb higher in the coming weeks.

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.
