MTG Fallout cards officially release on March 8, which is coming up on us awfully fast. For fans of the Fallout franchise, there’s a lot to look forward to. This set is chock full of extremely flavorful new additions to Commander. Even if you’re not big on the Fallout games themselves, though, there’s plenty to like here. For instance, there are a boatload of awesome, pricy reprints available to pick up with cool new art.

To highlight these high-value reprints, we thought it would be worthwhile to go over the most expensive reprints in MTG Fallout. Of note, because the set has not officially released yet, it’s difficult to predict how certain card treatments will affect the price of some reprints compared to their previous printings. As such, we will be looking at the cheapest overall printings available for these cards when building our rankings. Our price listings will come directly from TCGPlayer market price.

Additionally, some cards on this list are only featured in collector boosters of MTG Fallout. As such, you won’t find them in any of the main four Commander decks. With that out of the way, here are the top five most expensive MTG Fallout reprints.

#5- Inexorable Tide: $14

Inexorable Tide

Inexorable Tide appears in the Mutant Menace Fallout Commander deck, and it’s a perfect fit. The powerful Enchantment has a relatively simple effect, but an easy one to take advantage of. The Mutant Menace deck is built around The Wise Mothman, which is capable of giving players rad counters and distributing +1/+1 counters to your Creatures.

Inexorable Tide works well with both types of counters. You get to Proliferate your opponent’s rad counters to force them to lose more life and mill more cards, while also Proliferating the +1/+1 counters on your squad. Whether your deck is built around poison counters, energy counters, or whatever counters your little heart desires, Inexorable Tide is sure to help out.

Given its versatility and strength in Commander, Inexorable Tide currently sits at roughly $14. It was originally printed in Scars of Mirrodin, and has only been reprinted once back in Double Masters 2015. Given its lack of reprints coupled with the fact that it is not exclusive to collector boosters in MTG Fallout, expect this card to go down in price.

#4- Walking Ballista: $16

Walking Ballista

This multi-format staple is excellent in any deck that can generate lots of mana or add extra +1/+1 counters to Ballista at will. In Modern, Walking Ballista is one of the best cards in the Hardened Scales archetype. With access to Ballista, Arcbound Ravager, and a bunch of other Artifacts, you can threaten to shove a ton of extra counters on Ballista to finish off your opponent.

Ballista also works perfectly with Heliod, Sun-Crowned. You can give Ballista Lifelink with Heliod, then when you ping your opponent for one damage and gain one life, Heliod lets you put a +1/+1 counter right back on Ballista. This combination easily presents infinite damage, and resulted in the banning of Ballista in Pioneer.

Walking Ballista appeared in Aether Revolt, and has since seen reprints in Double Masters, Jumpstart 2022, and various Secret Lair drops. It has a price tag of roughly $16 in its cheapest traditional form. Now in MTG Fallout, it shows up as a collector booster exclusive with Showcase Pip-Boy treatment. Cards with Pip-Boy treatment are given new titles (in this case, Assaultron Invader), but these titles are simply treated as flavor text. For more information on this and other booster fun examples used in MTG Fallout, take a look here.

#3- Crucible of Worlds: $17

Crucible of Worlds

Crucible of Worlds is a powerful Artifact with a rather interesting ability. Getting to play Lands out of your graveyard may not sound that impressive, but in Eternal formats, you can essentially lock your opponents out of the game.

In Vintage Shops decks, Crucible works quite nicely in conjunction with Wasteland and Strip Mine. Even returning Urza’s Saga[tooltips] can help you close the game when applicable. Meanwhile, [tooltips]Mishra’s Workshop lets you take advantage of Crucible quite quickly.

Crucible is also a solid Commander card. Add in a good mix of Fetchlands and ways to play multiple Lands a turn, such as Exploration, and you can easily generate a ton of value.

In MTG Fallout, Crucible shows up in collector boosters as one of nine Vault Boy reprints. Cards with borderless Vault Boy treatment feature the mascot of the Fallout franchise in their artwork. Crucible has seen a decent number of reprints over the years. It sits at roughly $17 in its cheapest form.

#2- Wasteland: $20

Wasteland

We already mentioned the synergy between Wasteland and Crucible of Worlds, and Wasteland is also getting a borderless Vault Boy reprint in MTG Fallout collector boosters. Wasteland’s existence is incredibly important in shaping the metagames of Legacy and Vintage. In Legacy, Wasteland is an essential piece of the puzzle for tempo-oriented Delver of Secrets decks. The combination of Wasteland, Daze, and cheap threats can often allow you to end the game before your opponent even gets their feet underneath them, especially if you’re on the play.

Wasteland has been reprinted multiple times, including as an LOTR box topper. Still, the card has a hefty price tag of about $20 in its cheapest iteration.

#1- Ravages of War: $118

Ravages of War

Last but certainly not least, we have Ravages of War. Ravages of War is a strong card with an effect that can completely take over a game. Despite being a symmetrical effect, if you are ahead on board, Ravages of War can act as the nail in the coffin. By the time your opponents can rebuild their manabase, it may be too late.

Ravages of War is in a weird spot price-wise. In reality, its cost and effect are identical to Armageddon, which has a price tag of only $11 in its cheapest form. The difference, though, is that Ravages of War has only ever been printed in Portal Three Kingdoms and as a foil Judge promo. The foil Judge promo is worth about $118, while the non-foil Portal Three Kingdoms version sits at a whopping $251!

Even as an MTG Fallout collector booster exclusive with Vault Boy treatment, the card finally receiving another non-foil printing is sure to help tank the price. It’s nice to see expensive cards like this get the reprints they desperately need.
