The Most Expensive Cards From Wilds Of Eldraine
Wilds of Eldraine is right around the corner, and from what we've seen, it will be a loaded, powerful set that many players are excited about. When there are powerful, exciting cards, there are usually expensive cards, too. While WOE won't hold a candle to the most expensive cards from the LOTR set, it still has some high-value stuff. So, today, I'll review the most expensive cards from Wilds of Eldraine as we approach release.
The Top 10 Most Expensive Cards From Wilds Of Eldraine
10. Ashiok, Wicked Manipulator - $23.31
is the lone planeswalker in the set and shows up at number 10, at just over $23, which is pretty impressive since it's just the regular, run-of-the-mill version. That said, I'm not too surprised because the card is pretty powerful. Her static negates your life going down anytime you pay life; the +1 is card advantage, the -2 generates bodies to protect it, and the ult is a straight-up win condition if you get there.
I look forward to seeing what this can do in Standard and beyond.
9. Virtue of Knowledge (Showcase) - $24.75
is crazy. The enchantment portion is similar to a or but with an upside. Not only do decks playing those cards in EDH get another copy (assuming they play blue), but it's only half the card. And the other half, Vantress Visions, is the perfect counterpart to any deck that's going to what this card. Total spice here and I imagine this (especially the showcase version) will remain one of the more valuable cards from Wilds of Eldraine.
8. Ashiok, Wicked Manipulator (Borderless) - $25.34
I already covered what makes this powerful at number 10, so I won't waste your time repeating them ad nauseam. The card has everything you could want on a walker, and the borderless version seen here is about $2 more than the standard version counterpart. So, live a little and get the fancy one - In this case, it won't break the bank.

7. Agatha of the Vile Cauldron (Extended Art) - $25.51
Agatha of the Vile Cauldron is all the buzz right now, and I can see why. Reducing the cost of activated abilities is very powerful (and fun), and it works for her own activated ability, too, which is cool. There are some great abilities in MTG that reducing down to one mana would be great. And considering she has such a good pump ability, you'll probably want things that make tokens, like Dragons Whisper and.
6. Realm-Scorcher Hellkite (Extended Art) - $26.07
What's not to like about? For six mana, you get a 4/6 dragon with flying and haste. If you choose to bargain it (which means sacrificing an artifact, enchantment, or token when you cast it), you get four mana of any color! So, you'll get all that hasty, flying power and toughness for only two mana. And wait, there's more.
For two mana, it can deal one damage to any target. Perhaps the best thing about this last bit is that it gives you something to do with the four mana it makes, right on the card, which is a nice little cherry on top.
5. Beseech the Mirror - $29.38
We see the bargain mechanic again here for our number 5 card - This time on a tutor that can cast your spell for free, assuming it's four mana value or less and you paid the bargain cost. I feel like this will be a powerhouse in EDH, where it can not only tutor for a combo piece but also cast it on the spot for free! The traditional version is coming in at around $30, and I imagine it'll retain most of that (if not go up) after release.
4. Virtue of Strength (Showcase) - $31.29
is a crazy card. Like the other cards in the "virtue of" cycle from WOE, it has adventure and is very good. The adventure portion, Garenbrig Growth, returns a creature or land from your graveyard to your hand. Remember that you can use this and cast the enchantment portion later. So, returning a land can help ramp you into the seven mana you need for the main portion. Or, of course, buy back a significant threat.
Then, for a seven-mana investment, each basic land you tap for mana will give you not one, not two, but three mana. If you cast this (without help from mana dorks and such), you could have as much as 24 mana the next turn if you play all basic lands.
3. Agatha's Soul Cauldron (Extended Art) - $32.82
Grasping the full potential of this card is tricky. It lets you commandeer the activated abilities of creatures in any graveyard, and give them to your creatures, provided they have +1/+1 counters on them. It can also tap to exile a card from any graveyard, and give one of your creatures a +1/+1. So, it supports itself even if you build this in a way that isn't all in on counters.
2. Beseech the Mirror (Extended Art) - $36.79
Here we have our second instance of Beseech the Mirror. The regular version came in as the fifth most expensive card from Wilds of Eldraine, at $29.38. A tutor that can potentially cast your target spell for free is quite powerful and this extended version comes in at around $7 more than the previous.
1. Moonshaker Cavalry (Extended Art) - $38.71
If you've seen the Wilds of Eldraine spoilers or read about Best Commander Cards From Wilds Of Eldraine, you've probably seen this beast of a card. If not, buckle in cause it's a good one. And it's not surprising to see it as the most expensive card from the set. What makes it so good?
It's an easy win condition in decks playing go-wide token strategies. Similar to the green commander staple,, if you have even a few creatures on board, you can wipe one (or more) players out of the game with ease. You can also blink this with things like Ephimerate, and it gets even more out of hand. If you wanted Craterhoof in white, you got it - If you wanted to essentially play two copies of Craterhoof in your G/W/X token decks, you got it!
However, you'll have to fork over the nearly $40 for the card... Unless you proxy.
