The Most Expensive Commander Masters Reprints

Share
Article at a Glance

Every time a new set of MTG comes out, players tend to rush to their local stores to start cracking packs and getting a feel for the product. Reprint sets like Commander Masters tends to have a lot of iconic cards, but it can be difficult to ascertain which cards are still expensive.

Commander Masters, as we’ve mentioned before, is a really expensive MTG set. While there are a ton of not-so-great reprints focused more on the Limited experience this set offers, there’s also a ton of heavy hitters to help satisfy the sky-high price tag.

Massive price tags on the MTG secondary market are caused by multiple factors, and many of the cards getting reprinted in Commander Masters have part of their price tags connected to some level of scarcity. These are the best cards that Wizards of the Coast could reprint, but the reprints will also affect the price tag heavily. That’s why they’re good reprints, after all.

With that in mind, here are the most expensive reprints in Commander Masters, why their prices are expensive, and whether you should expect larger price drops or not.

14 | Deadly Rollick

Deadly Rollick

Price: $15.75

To kick off our list of the most expensive reprints in Commander Masters, we have Deadly Rollick. Part of a cycle from Commander 2020, Deadly Rollick can be cast for absolutely nothing in Commander games. So long as you control a Commander, Deadly Rollick is a completely free exile spell. 

As you can imagine, Deadly Rollick is an incredibly powerful card, if sometimes a bit situational. Thanks to this strength, there’s a huge demand for this Commander-focused powerhouse. Thankfully, following the set’s recent release, Commander Masters has been able to temper the card’s price somewhat. 

Initially priced at around $30, now, on TCG player, copies of Deadly Rollick can be yours for around $16. While this still isn’t all too cheap, it’s nevertheless a lot better than the prices were a few weeks ago. 

13 | Smothering Tithe

Smothering Tithe

Price: $17.75

Like many cards on this list, Smother Title is an utterly iconic Commander card. Infamous for making players “pay the 2” this Enchantment is a true staple in white. Whether you want to slow down your opponents or amass Treasures, Smothering Tithe is absolutely the card for you. 

Curiously, the price of Smothering Tithe has been a little all over the place recently thanks to repeated reprints. Not only was this card obviously in Commander Masters, but it also appeared in the Enchanting Tales Bonus Sheet. While these back-to-back reprints helped to drive the card’s price down massive, it has since recovered some. 

Currently, on TCGplayer, copies of Smothering Title can be yours for between $17 and $18.

12 | The Ur-Dragon

The Ur-Dragon

Price: $19.50

Initially only available in Secret Lair product and Commander 2017, The Ur-Dragon was not easy to get ahold of. The Ur-Dragon also happens to be the most popular Dragon Commander around, according to EDHREC, which happens to be the most popular Typal deck according to the platform.

Even though this card is being reprinted, the fourth most popular Commander in the world, Commander Masters is already beginning to impact its price. Currently, copies of The Ur-Dragon from Commander Masters are selling for $19.

11 | Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Price: $19.50

Players have been asking for an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger reprint, and they got one. This is not the reprint that I’m referring to. This card also showed up in a recent Secret Lair reprint that occurred not too long ago. As a result, the need for this particular reprint has faded away a bit, but Ulamog was in dire need of a reprint before it came in the Secret Lair.

Thanks to its second reprint in recent times, Ulamog the Ceaseless Hunger is currently selling for around $20, a far cry from its $70 price tag a year ago.

10 | Finale of Devastation

Finale of Devastation

Price: $22.50

Similarly to Craterhoof Behemoth, Finale of Devastation is a fantastically powerful green MTG card. So much so, that we even labeled it as one of the best green cards of all time recently! Offering immense power in Commander games, Finale of Devastation is capable of ending games incredibly quickly.

Thanks to the immense strength of this card, copies of it have always been rather expensive. Fueling this cost has largely been the scarcity of the card since it was only printed in War of the Spark. Thankfully, Commander Masters is now here to fix that problem, as the reprint has brought the price down significantly. Once valued at $45, Finale of Devastation can now be yours for just $22.

9 | Deflecting Swat

Deflecting Swat

Price: $23.75

I absolutely love the flavor text on this card! It’s fitting that my favorite flavor text of the set so far is also on the cycle of cards that I wanted to see reprinted the most in the entire set. The free Commander spells from Commander 2020 are some of the most powerful cards in all of Commander. That said, the blue and red ones outperform the other cards that this cycle has to offer. You can read more about that here.

Deadly Rollick is also plenty powerful and Flawless Maneuver is a powerful tool in the right deck.

Deflecting Swat was going for $50 previous to this reprint announcement. Now, however, the card is selling for around $24. As with many cards on this list, as Commander Masters continues to sell, the card’s price may well fall even more.

8 | Craterhoof Behemoth

Craterhoof Behemoth

Price: $25

Capable of ending games in an instant Craterhoof Behemoth is an absolutely iconic Commander card. Found within 7% of all green Commander decks, it’s safe to say there’s a good deal of demand for this game-ending behemoth. Curiously, however, the recent release of Commander Masters hasn’t caused the card’s price to tank. 

Currently, on TCGplayer, the cheapest available copy of Craterhoof Behemoth sells for around $19.50. This is the Secret Lair Drop card, featuring art drawn by Kira, age 5 ½. Evidently not to everyones taste, the basic artwork for Craterhoof Behemoth is currently selling for a slight premium. Specifically, a normal variant of Craterhoof Behemoth from Commander Masters will set you back $25.

7 | Cyclonic Rift

Cyclonic Rift

Price: $26

This spell quickly became one of Commander’s iconic blowout effects. Setting all of your opponents back while keeping your board intact is devastating. Doing it at Instant speed when you’re ahead usually means the game already has one foot in the grave.

At the moment, on TCGplayer, Cyclonic Rift sells for around $26. This is only a $4 drop compared to its usual value. Considering this Cyclonic Rift is an iconic Commander card that everyone wants in their blue decks, it’s not that surprising.

6 | Fierce Guardianship

Fierce Guardianship

Price: $29

Fierce Guardianship just kind’ve appeared out of nowhere in terms of spoiler announcements, but it is confirmed to appear in Commander Masters. Widely considered the most powerful of the free Commander spells, Fierce Guardianship represents a Force of Negation if you have your Commander in play. Because of this, the other restrictions on Force of Negation do not apply to Fierce Guardianship.

This is truly one of the best cards in all of Commander, and almost every single deck that can run this, strictly from a power perspective, probably should be. The card is currently available for $36 on TCGplayer.

5 | Avacyn, Angel of Hope

Avacyn, Angel of Hope

Price: $31

Avacyn, Angel of Hope is one of the flashiest payoffs in all of Magic. For eight mana, your entire board becomes Indestructible. Avacyn herself has some evasion otherwise and is, obviously Indestructible.

Honestly, in a lot of ways, this doesn’t seem as flashy as some other cards on this list, but Avacyn’s secondary market price is far above that of many other cards in Commander Masters. Thanks to a perfect storm of demand and some reprints (but none that are widely available), this card is currently going for around $31. Notable, this is a $19 drop compared to what Avacyn typically sells for.

4 | Demonic Tutor

Demonic Tutor

Price: $34

Demonic Tutor is one of the best cards in all of Commander. Capable of searching for any card in your deck for the cheap cost of two mana, tutors like this one are your best bet to up your consistency. Because Commander is a Singleton format – meaning all your nonbasic land cards cannot exceed one copy, Demonic Tutor, and all the other Tutors MTG has to offer, allowing you to find a multitude of different cards in any situation makes them truly powerful.

3 | Doubling Season

Doubling Season

Price: $36

Doubling Season is a mandatory threat that must be removed as soon as possible. This card doesn’t do anything on its own, but it turns an endless number of cards into things that can end the game on entry. In other words, the amount of value this card provides to any follow-up is absolutely devastating. This only gets worse for Planeswalker decks since Doubling Season allows those cards to enter with twice the number of Loyalty counters.

2 | The Great Henge

The Great Henge

Price: $43

Another card that got a recent reprint, The Great Henge was on the top of the list for many Commander players regarding promising reprints. Even though this card just saw a minor reprint in the Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth set, it’s still selling for a respectable amount. Currently, on TCGplayer, The Great Henge can be yours for $43, which is only a few dollars less than before this reprint.

The Great Henge is a casual Commander player’s dream. Tapping for mana, drawing cards, gaining life, and pumping up your creatures, this card is an absolutely ridiculous spell in any green deck. If you’re trying to cast some truly troublesome haymakers, The Great Henge will cost you nothing to cast. This is because the card can reduce its casting cost by the greatest power amongst creatures you control. The lowest that this can reduce The Great Henge to is two green mana, but the artifact itself taps for the same amount, essentially making it cost zero if you have the mana to cast it.

1 | Jeweled Lotus

Jeweled Lotus

Price: $85

One of Commander’s most controversial cards is getting its first reprint! A literal ripoff of Black Lotus in a Commander lens, Jeweled Lotus is a free three mana, but only to cast Commanders with. There are some cute things you can do with this card and Doubling Cube but, for the most part, this card is pretty straightforward and powerful.

The price for a copy of Jeweled Lotus seems to have stabilized at around $85 at the moment. Considering that this only provides a one-shot three mana of one color, not every deck is going to want this. That said, this is an incredibly powerful card to have in your opening hand, and there are not a lot of copies of this card available overall.
