Foils cards can be a controversial topic in Magic: the Gathering.

When it comes to traditional foils, players frequently call them “Pringles” because of their questionable quality and tendency to fold in on themselves like the famous curled potato chip.

Then, there’s the topic of new foils. Wizards of the Coast shifted their business model to emphasize the collectibility of the game. They’re constantly inventing new alternate arts, frames, and foiling processes.

Etched foils have been hit-or-miss with the fan base’s aesthetic tastes. And we already know WOTC is experimenting with new types of MTG foils, like textured foils in Double Masters 2022 and Galaxy foils in Unfinity.

However, WOTC’s latest foil treatment, Gilded Foils, seems to be an overall hit with the Magic community. This article will cover some of the best and most expensive Gilded Foils from Streets of New Capenna.

The Best Gilded Foils from New Capenna

When they first came out, players were hesitant about Gilded Foils. The gold-leaf treatment was shiny but no one knew if these would be the next “MTG Pringle”. But once New Capenna was released and people got their hands on Gilded Foils, they realized two things. Gilded Foils look amazing and they are rarer than we initially thought. Because of this many Gilded Foil prices went up in price.
