Expensive cards you wouldn't buy yourself?

Expensive cards you wouldn't buy yourself?

DurdleEngine

Whenever I spend money in the $20+ range on a single card, I want to make sure it's something that is a format staple and will hold its value. Nothing worse than picking up an expensive card that hasn't been reprinted in a while, only to see it plummet 6 months later in a standard set reprinting. If I was to buy a card in that range right now? I think it would be an Enlightened Tutor, I play a lot of white decks and it's a colour that really lacks good tutors.


ZomMcZombie

That's my fear with necropotence... It's a card that could be in a master or horizon set. I bought [[Alhammeratt's Archive]] for about $15 now it's under $10. But I have a rot hulk since I own the game nights set, so hard to judge! I also want a staple card, but something fun and explosive, not a tutor. Maybe [[cyclonic rift]]?


Uncle-Istvan

I picked up 3 necropotences for $10 total after the last reprint. It could and should get reprinted and will drop again.


R_V_Z

I think I paid $20 for my Deckmaster version. Sometimes it's good to get the rarer versions of cards when they are cheaper because the spike potential is greater.


_TheBeardedDan_

yeah that's about the same price i got mine, i got mine less than 3£ and it's currently not even in any deck


p1ckk

Necro will probably be reprinted again one day and the price will drop when it is. But it will never be a cheap card.


ZomMcZombie

That's my fear, it's due. But like exquisite blood, it'll dip, then climb again immediately, so not an investment, but for a free card won't hurt me


VargoHoatsMyGoats

[[necrologia]] is a good placeholder if you’re looking for just a big draw spell. Obviously significantly worse but still pretty good


ImmortalCorruptor

I don't think you have much to worry about with Necropotence. It's used exclusively in Vintage and EDH so it's not something they like to flood every Masters product with and the demand will always be there because it's good in almost any deck that runs black, as opposed to Coffers. Regardless, I wouldn't worry too much about cards losing value especially if it's only a matter of $10. Anything that isn't on the reserve list has a chance to be reprinted so unless you plan on buying Power 9 and playing Vintage/Old School, seeing your cards rise and fall is inescapable. Just think of it this way: it's impossible to know for sure what they're going to reprint or not reprint in future sets. You can make an educated guess but you'll be right or wrong time and time again and some cards will spike while others will tank. I've been playing and collecting long enough to say that you shouldn't worry about long-term investments because it all evens out. I paid $20 for cards that are now worth $5 and I've also bought playsets of cards for $20 that are worth $150. Just buy what you know you'll play and don't get too caught up in the value.


ZomMcZombie

I haven't been burned yet, as I haven't really sold any cards that I've bought. Thanks for the insight, I will just go with what I want now and not worry about possible reprints!


Kaigz

Honestly this is a risk you run picking up any money card that's not on the Reserve List. Buy cards because you want to play them - not because you hope they'll hold or accrue value - and they'll never turn into buyer's remorse (unless they get banned I guess).


VICTOR_VII

What the fuck lmfao, I never knew Rot Hulk was like 40 dollars. Ahhhhh, I'm rich! I'm richhhhhh!!! Time to spend it on cards for my Hapatra deck


ZomMcZombie

It's insane how much that card had climbed! I have a varina zombie deck, and don't really want to put it in so I might try to trade it before it drops and get some better upgrades


mdmarra

Unless you are buying RL, EVERYTHING will be reprinted at some point. You'll have a lot less anxiety about what to get when you realize this. If you want a Necro, get a Necro. It's a cool card.

SamohtGnir

I'm honestly surprised Nercropotence wasn't in Commander Legends. It might be one of those cards they consider a bit too powerful to reprint, so they might print a similar but less powerful version at some point.


GrosOursBlanc

A bigger surprise for me was that is wasn't in commander spellbook black instead of phyrexian arena ; i think it is a big missed opportunity especially considering that it include commander tower and sol ring which are more or less dead cards in a product that'll cost in the 100$ range


ZomMcZombie

I've wondered that as well. They seem to be building stuff similar but not quite. Cards like [[vilas broker of blood]] and other cards that draw based off of life but are a bit more conditional.

> I’d buy anything from MH2 that is interesting to you, near the floor on prices there. Already have, though there wasn't a lot I needed from that set. Just got the fetches I needed from that cycle. But I wouldn't recommend fetches to anyone, there are far more impactful cards you can get first.

Get your copy of Cabal Coffers before it goes back up. I wanted one for years and regret not getting one when it was in the low $20's.


JustgoofinMTG

Makes me feel like I'm taking crazy pills because I got my PLAYSET of Cabal Coffers for $20 back in the day. Zero percent chance I'd bother with this game if I was a player starting from scratch right now


ZomMcZombie

It's such a strong land, and I already have cabal stronghold so it would round out pretty well! Just need urborg then.

Get a coffers. It’s only gonna go up from here. To answer your question: Fetch lands or crowd lands


ZomMcZombie

Lands are also the thing I don't want to buy myself, since I want to buy the fun cards. But need consistent mana


Senparos

Powerful lands are like a good mattress. It doesn’t sound worth the cost but the difference it makes is unbelievable once you go for it


CarnifexBestFex

This is the best explanation for why lands are so good, they might not be fun or exciting to buy, but they are so worth it


[deleted]

Definitely agree. I got fetches for my higher powered decks and it makes my lower powered, fetchless decks feel so slow by comparison


Srakin

Honestly Coffers does not feel like something that just happens to patch up your manabase. It's a big splashy card all on its own and enables really big plays. I get not wanting to pick up random colour fixing and stuff, but cards like Coffers, or big money things like Gaea's Cradle? These cards are often just as splashy and impactful as \[\[Dockside Extortionist\]\] or \[\[Jeska's Will\]\].

Speaking of a fun splashy card in black I think is super underrated, I really like [[Twilight Prophet]]. It’s always been just a little out of my price range but reverse Bob every upkeep is awesome


uglyhos324324324

Ixalan has a lot of low-key commander staples that would be even more popular if they were cheaper. Set was hardly opened.


HerakIinos

Bob is good because its 2 mana. Phyrexian arena is 3 and there are already lots of people who dont like it... twilight prophet is 4 mana. I wouldnt say its bad, but its not underrated either and its also more expensive than what it should be.

Katie_or_something

Coffers isn't really a manabase fixer, and it doesn't go in most decks. Fetches and shocks are the golden standard for fixing


Syncharmony

Coffers might be the funnest land in the game. Nyxthos is pretty close though. If you play a lot of black, Coffers will be a super fun card and you won't regret. Just remember though that it works best with Urborg, so if you don't have that yet, then Coffers won't be quite as impressive.


obsidianspell

I finally sucked it up and traded some cards to get a Coffers a few months back from my lgs. Somewhere between $100-105. Then literally a week later the MH2 spoiler released… and now the card is so low… everyone, do yourself a favor. Get one. Now.


Syncharmony

The borderless alternate art Coffers is like... $30 now. I already owned Coffers but I snagged one because I cannot believe that that won't be a $60+ card pretty dang soon.


rezignator

It was the same thing with a lot of extended art cards. Vampiric Tutor from commander legends was just under $40 a week or two after the set released. I already had one from Eterbal Masters but seeing both the regular and extended art were the same price and less than half the cost of the last printing I snagged an extended art one. It's already up around 60 while the regular one is hovering around 50 now.


curiositie

I'm so torn because after mh2 I was 2 fetches, coffers, and one or two other cards but they're all in the $20 range and it would cost ~$100 to buy them all. Or I could build a new deck with a mediocre mana base


Zstorm6

Crowd lands?


Ravenpoe121

It's what some people call the bond lands, aka dual lands that come in untapped if you have more than one opponent. Like [[morphic pool]]

Zstorm6

I figured, just wanted to confirm.


eggmaniac13

It’s what Gavin called the Battlebond cycle of dual lands


ImmortalCorruptor

Honesty Necropotence seems like the better general option. It can be safely run in most decks that run black. I would only run Coffers in decks that are monoblack or heavy black and have a proper manabase to support it. And I don't mean just Urborg, I mean the appropriate dual lands like Watery Grave, Triomes, Fetish Pools and fetches. Way too many people jam it in any deck that runs black, which I feel is incorrect because you end up with awkward hands like Darkwater Catacombs, Island, Underground River and Coffers. It should be a card that functions fine without having to waste a tutor to find Urborg.


zapdoszaperson

I'd pick up something that is decently staple so generally something that either a land, draws, or tutors. Enemy fetchlands are super cheap right now and if you don't already have them they are a prime pick up with the most expensive (tarn and misty) being just over $30 atm.


ZomMcZombie

Lands are something I always have a hard time with. I want them but don't feel compelled to buy them. Maybe this would be perfect since it's technically free to me!


Necrolich

Fetches are good only if you have the duals to support them. They need to be duals with land types i.e. shocks Otherwise is a basic land that costs you 1 life and 1 card. Basic fixing is...not a great use of fetches


ZomMcZombie

I think my mana base would need more to it before adding fetches. But having more solid mana would be good place to start


VargoHoatsMyGoats

You mentioned playing black… get coffers. It’s the reason monoblack is good. (And it plays really well with a budget moon black mana base) then you can get urborg and land tutors and it makes your black decks zoom.


huggybear0132

I'd get the shock lands first. They are genuinely good duals that have the basic land types - relevant with far more than just fetches. The only reason to get fetches is they are all-time cheap right now.


Soleil06

Fetches are amazing in Landfall decks as well, they are also incredible good with commanders like [[Muldrotha]] or with cards like [[Life from the Loam]] or [[Wrenn and Six]]. They let you shuffle for cards like [[Brainstorm]] or [[Senseis Divining Top]]. The opportunity cost for them is so increible low with just 1 life that I think almost every deck is better if they run at least the in color fetches.


HextechJax

I've got a Syr Gwyn Voltron deck and I'd love to get some of the "Sword of"s, they'd be useful in other decks if that one ever gets dismantled too.


ZomMcZombie

I didn't even think of the swords! I should look those over, thank you!

Some of them got reprinted in Double Masters and were somewhat affordable for a bit, but immediately picked up again :(

Both of those are good options. I personally would feel the need to include Urborg as well though. I’m not sure if you have one of those yet. But that’s another 20ish dollar card now. Necro is pretty damn good in a vacuum. Gets slightly harder to cast when you’re in more than 1 or 2 colors. But still a great card. I hate to be “that guy” about reserve list cards.

Dream Halls is a very neat card. It is pretty niche though. Be advised, it does allow your opponents to use the ability as well. I’d look towards Necro to be honest. It can go in many more decks and can stay with you longer as a memento of your friendship.


ZomMcZombie

Dream Halls could go into a [[Kami of the Crescent Moon]] deck that I build when I get the secret lair I'm December. It's a "group hug" all draw deck, pretty casual so this would be a great inclusion! But necropotence has been my "dream card" for as long as I've played magic so it's more sentimental, which would mean more for the memory of this.

I was only lucky to get it in a pack with the jumpstart reprints. It’s currently residing in my [[K’rrik, Son of Yawgmoth]] deck. Also this post gave me the push to buy Cabal Coffers for the same deck, I hope you’re happy. lol

That's the same deck I'd buy coffers in as well! Which is why I also want Necropotence, 6 life draw all of the cards.

If I had 20 to 50 to spend on one card and that was the only card in that price range I could buy I'd either get smothering tithe or rhystic study, depending on the color I most often play The value is just so insane they cant be beat


sugitime

Maybe get some universally useful like a play set of Triomes (which will just go up in price). I’d personally invest in lands of I needed to decide where my $25 should go


ZomMcZombie

Triomes would be decent, could get a few for a good price


super-daveed

I actually had this exact opportunity, a friend of mine told me he was gonna get me a "fancy magic card" for my birthday but he doesn't play, so we went to my LGS and he said alright you only get one card so make it count. I asked for a limit on price because magic is expensive he laughed and said "whatever you want" so I pointed at some random card that graded and asked the guy how much to which he said $600. I looked at my friend and smiled a devilish smile. He quickly told me to stop being an ass. I laughed and noticed they had a borderless foil [[terror of the peaks]] that wasn't all curled, and I was working in my dragon deck. At the time it was I think $50~ he said that works and he bought it for me. He was so excited for me when he saw how pretty it is and how excited I was to have it that he told me to video call him the first time I played it in a game. I did, confused the poor randy I was playing with at my LGS but it was fantastic and even though I lost that game, my opponent told me after the fact he purposely held back a counter because of the "occasion" lol Easily my favorite card I've ever owned and I'll never sell it. I don't care if it climbs into the thousands in value.


ZomMcZombie

That's such a great story! :) I hope that the card I choose gives me a sentimental value like that. Obliviously if it is necropotence I don't expect people to hold back removal.... but it will hold a spot in my heart!

[[Crucible of Worlds]] It's funny to think about this card being a "barrier" for playing certain archetypes to a good number of people in EDH, myself included for a while. Without a doubt, my all-time-fav commander has to be [[Titania, Protector of Argoth]] for a few different reasons, but ultimately because it made me realize how fun CoW can be. When this got spoiled, I forced myself to bite the bullet and pick up a CoW, and I'm pretty sure the card is twice as expensive now as it was then even after receiving a few reprints. At least now we've got some cheaper alternatives in [[Ramunap Excavator]], which makes me hope we'll see more Crucible effects in the future. There's something so satisfying about playing lands from your graveyard or as a resource beyond just tapping for mana that no other archetype does for me. Crucible 100%.

Oof, Meathook hurts. I think it was as low at $15 on TCGplayer at one point. Went to buy it and it was $45. Really want that card for [[Lurrus]] but I'll wait until it gets banned or rotates

I wanted it for leisa, but I also can wait for the card. When stock catches up it'll hover around $20 if not $15 but also light be after a longer period than expected.

You can’t cast it with lurrus I believe. Could be wrong though. Well you can cast it for X=0 from the yard.

Not exactly what you're asking, but proxying expensive cards really keeps those "feel bads' from the constant price jumping that occurs But if you really want to buy something I'd get cabal coffers. It's not gonna be this cheap again in a long time


Gluttony4

I think the only card that I've ever bought at over $20 was [[Emrakul, the Promised End]] because I wanted her as a commander. I want [[Sliver Queen]] too, for the same reason, but that's a whole other level of expensive. I've also bought a couple of cards at lower prices that have since risen. [[Birthing Pod]] is probably the best of the ones I have. [[Dockside Extortionist]] is also a really good choice of expensive card to buy, though I think it's above $50.

hyugafan

At this point, OG dual lands and most of the RL stuff. I own several reserved list pieces from back in the day, but it's become unatainable for me.


TheReal_BucNasty

Well I grabbed a mox emerald earlier this year and I think that's my limit, haha.


IntenseGenius

I was the same with Meathook honestly, figured it would go down after the official set release so waited, and now it's almost double the price. :(


ZomMcZombie

I was going to preorder a copy, but after the bet I thought I'd be getting one :/, oh well it'll come around!


zombieinfamous

As one of the higher-budget players, I usually don’t hesitate too hard on stuff I need badly. On the flipside, I don’t like buying overinflated standard cards if I didn’t pull them. Great Henge was this, now Meathook (if I didn’t pull three 🤣) and Goldspan. Otherwise, cards at more crazy price points (Imperial Seal, Word of Command, Chains of Mephistopheles, Nether Void, Cradle) that I wish I had are beyond what I’m willing or able to pay even if I saved up for a bit. Mind you, I’ve had chances for some of them.


Generationignored

If you're going to spend money on cardboard, I would recommend getting an EDH staple from the Reserved List. The price can't really crash, and the ones around 25-50 are definitely playable. \[\[shallow grave\]\] and \[\[corpse dance\]\] are both less than $50, and good in almost any graveyard deck. \[\[undiscovered paradise\]\] is great as color fixing, and in landfall decks. Etc. etc. etc.


bannedepisode

I recently bought a Diamond Valley for my Hazezon Tamar deck. Pretty good price for it, but I wasnt ever expecting to actually pull the trigger. For me it wasnt that it is a good card (It isnt), it just fit the theme of the deck and I love the art. High Market is arguably a lot better and is a dollar.


DWorgg911

most expensive card ive bought is Morophon the boundless, that was at $30 and its nit even close


hejtmane

I will buy expensive cards and sometimes they come down in price I try to get them when they are down but if they get reprinted so be it I am fine with that because that makes the cards more accessible to other players and I did not buy the card as an investment but to play in a deck. On meathook I think it is artificially hiked and will come down in price as more of the set gets printed and played because it is not a limited print run. I would spend $15-20 for the card but it is not worth $40


jpmoeller

You can't go wrong with land. As others have said, you may not think it's flashy, but wait until you see how much faster you play the flashy stuff you have. I have 22 EDH decks, and I'm on a mission to replace the come-into-play-tapped lands. Getting close, and it's made a huge difference! Don't forget to take advantage of new set hype. For MH2, I pulled a foil-etched Arid Mesa. For a day or two, they were worth $140. A guy there wanted it so bad, he traded it for 19 dual-faced/modal lands. Best trade I've made. My vote is Cabal. I don't think it will ever go down from where it is. It's too good and a staple in many black decks.


muffinpuncher

Mtgstocks.com and look at the cheap pickups for the last few weeks and pick from that imo


iamnotasloth

I’m sure I’ll get downvotes, but here’s my genuine, honest answer: Do you play constructed decks in official tournaments where they require you to own legit cards? If not, to me spending more than $1 on a piece of paper is absolutely insane, unless you legitimately have more money than you know what to do with. A cheap trash magic card + a sleeve + access to a basic printer with regular printer paper + a pair of scissors is all you need to make any MTG card you’ve ever seen, including Black Lotuses. And from an experience standpoint, the game is exactly the same experience when you play with proxies as when you play with legit cards. In fact, people who play with truly bonkers expensive decks usually play with proxies and then keep the real cards in a binder nearby in case people want proof they own the real thing. They can’t risk damaging a card worth thousands by shuffling and playing it. So unless you’re trying to go to tournaments, when you pay legit money for a piece of paper, the only thing you’re paying for is the pride in your brain that you own the real piece of paper instead of a version that looks and feels 97% the same. For me, there are a lot of things I’d rather spend $25 on over the mental satisfaction of knowing I’ve got a piece of paper printed by Wizards instead of by myself. I’m into board games: $25 gets me either 1% of a commander deck or 50% of an entire, brand new, full sized board game. I’ve been saving up for a new guitar. I want $300 for it. There was a time in my life I owned EDH decks worth more than that. A single deck of cards that I play once every few weeks (because I have other decks I play too, so each deck only sees play some of the time), which costs more money than a musical instrument I play every day. I don’t know, at a certain point my eyes opened to how absolutely ridiculous spending real money on MTG is. You do you, but for me it seems like a huuuuuge waste.


HisNameIsEarlWayne

Dude, Hareruya is selling coffers for eight bucks apiece right now: https://www.hareruyamtg.com/en/products/detail/98317?lang=JP


HextechJax

I've got a Syr Gwyn Voltron deck and I'd love to get some of the "Sword of"s, they'd be useful in other decks if that one ever gets dismantled too.

TheW1ldcard

Spending $20-$50 on a card is nothing. I draw the line at $100


ZomMcZombie

My decks are $100 lol, so $20-50 is a big jump to me. I was proxying a lot of decks during covid, but now that stuff is opening back up I'm spending money on cards again.


TheW1ldcard

That's cool. I know not a lot of people have expendable income or can drop a lot of money like that on cards.


OddPal04

TheW1ldcard

Far from it. This is just my only hobby so I can spend any extra income into it.

I think is pretty clear that the OP doesn't consider 20$ for a single card nothing. What's your point?


_TheBeardedDan_

lol my line is at £10 but i have plenty of cards worth more than that after buying them cheap


Glowwerms

I’ve purchased a few cards now in that range, [[Smothering Tithe]], [[Deflecting Swat]], [[Demonic Tutor]], [[Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx]], [[Cyclonic Rift]]. As others have said I try to only buy cards in this range that I know I’ll use interchangeably in several decks in the event I take apart something or make a new deck that could use some padding with naturally good shit

I have yet to buy a card over $50. As my playgroups move towards proxying everything I probably never will either.

I have been proxying a lot with covid, since I've been stuck inside more. Built a few decks but like to play them s few times to know which cards I actually want to buy. I do like to have a copy of a card if I proxy at game stores in case someone gets butt hurt

Personally, I'd snag an extended art Coffers and cover the difference in price. Not likely to be reprinted for awhile, great art, and I think the price will rebound if you decide to move it after a while.

after doing budget for a year, i caved on Elesh norn for my slight elspeth themed Daxos returned deck. I remember paying a LOT to make decks, and I never want to do that again since I now see how much money went into it. I would get cabal cofers if urborg is also cheap since it gets way better with that unless you are mono black.
