Sometimes the theme of a preconstructed deck can feel lackluster, or there isn’t much value in the deck, or you already have a bunch of the cards that the deck comes with. But there can still be some individual cards within a product that catch your eye. That’s okay! You can always buy singles! Let’s take a look at some of the most exciting singles to buy from the Planar Portal Commander deck.

Best New Card to Buy From Planar Portal

Grim Hireling

Grim Hireling is in my opinion, the most interesting card exclusive to the Planar Portal deck. It has the unique ability to ramp your mana (via treasure tokens) as a mono-black card. This can assist you in playing big spells like Razaketh, the Foulblooded or fuel fun win conditions likeRevel in Riches. It also has a built-in removal effect. For its current price of about $3.00, this could make a great inclusion in lots of Commander decks.

Best Reprints to Buy From Planar Portal

Disrupt Decorum

Wizards of the Coast

Disrupt Decorum can cause chaos in a game of Commander. It pits all your opponents against each other, forcing them to attack one another, while you sit back to enjoy the show from the sidelines.

This is the perfect card for political decks like Queen Marchesa and for political players. Thanks to its reprint in Planar Portal, Disrupt Decorum is available for only $3.00. Compared to its previous price tag of nearly $20.00, I’d say now is finally a good time to pick up copies of this card you always wanted.

Loyal Apprentice

Wizards of the Coast

Loyal Apprentice was in need of a reprint because before Planar Portal was released, it was only printed in a 2018 Commander deck and on The List. Consequently, this uncommon crept up to about $5.00! You can get it now for less than $1.00!

Artifact decks like Breya, Etherium Shaper love access Loyal Apprentice and its repeated token generation. It’s also perfect for Winota, Joiner of Forces because she can play Loyal Apprentice with her ability, and the Thopters that Loyal Apprentice makes fuel Winota’s ability further.

Direfleet Daredevil

Wizards of the Coast

Once referred to as “the red Snapcaster Mage“, Dire Fleet Daredevil never did get as much attention as its blue counterpart. Nevertheless, Dire Fleet was still about a $5.00 card before it was reprinted in Planar Portal.

Daredevil can be quite good in Commander, giving you access to all the best spells in your opponents’ graveyards. Need a piece of removal? Card draw? Dire Fleet is versatile in that it has the potential to serve as any of these effects. And right now, Dire Fleet Daredevil is less than $1.00.

Wizards of the Coast

Vandleblast is a major Commander staple. Just look at EDHREC. It’s the 5th most played red card of all time in the format. You can either efficiently destroy a single artifact, or destroy every single artifact your opponents control.

Thanks to the reprint in the Planar Portal Commander deck and in Time Spiral Remastered, Vandalblast is now available for $3.00-$4.00. Considering Vandalblast used to be a $10.00+ card before these reprints, this is a big deal.
