> Top 10 Most Expensive Magic the Gathering Cards and How Much Do They Cost

Magic: The Gathering, also known as Magic or MTG, is a tabletop collectible card game by Richard Garfield. Released in 1993, Magic was the first trading card game; approximately thirty-five million players are present as of 2018. Hasbro produced over 20 billion Magic cards for eight years during its peak popularity.

A player in Magic is called the Planeswalker, a powerful wizard who can 'walk' between 'planes' of the Multiverse, battling with other players as Planeswalkers by using artifacts, summoning creatures, and casting spells as shown in the individual collectible cards drawn in individual desks. 

Although the original concept drew heavy motifs from traditional RPG games such as Dungeons & Dragons, the gameplay has similarities to paper-and-pencil games.

However, it is still one of the most popular card games in the world. Here is a list of the ten most expensive Magic: The Gathering cards.

Time Vault - $1,000 to $3,000

Time Vault - $1,000 to $3,000

'Tap to gain an additional turn after the current one. Time Vault doesn't untap normally during untap phase; to untap it, you must skip a turn. Time Vault begins tapped.'

This Mono Artifact card is one of the most swindling cards on the list. Its marketing price has constantly been dropping over the years. However, depending on its condition, its estimated worth is between $1,000 to $3,000.

Mox Pearl - $1,500 to $3,750

Mox Pearl - $1,500 to $3,750

'Add 1 white mana to your mana pool. Tapping this artifact can be played as an interrupt.'

Planeswalkers often overlook this Mono Artifact card. With its whopping $1,500 - $3,750 value, the card can resurrect creatures while casting spells. Using it in the early game gives Planeswalkers an advantage to literally choose between life and death. 

The card won't cost you any mana, by the way.

Time Walk - $1,650 - $5,000

Time Walk - $1,650 - $5,000

The third on the list is the Time Walk.

'Take an extra turn after this one.'

This Sorcerer card is infamous for being blue, which gave players the right to break the rules momentarily. In other words, Time Walk allows you to take an extra turn once a Planeswalker's turn is over, and if you happen to have more than one Time Walk, then you could use it during your different turn and gain another turn after that. 

With the card's unique mechanics, no wonder Planeswalkers could fetch it for $1,650 - $5,000.

Mox Emerald - $1,500 - $6,000

Mox Emerald - $1,500 - $6,000

'Add 1 green mana to your mana pool. Tapping this artifact can be played as an interrupt.'

The seventh most expensive card on the list is the Mox Emerald. This Mox Mono artifact card is more than meets the eye. 

Did you know that this card is a part of the infamous 'Power Nine' where cards provide Planeswalkers powers without a mana cost, which is a massive advantage for Planeswalkers when they use it in the early game.

Mox Ruby - $2,000 - $6,000

Mox Ruby - $2,000 - $6,000

'Add 1 red mana to your mana pool. Tapping this artifact can be played as an interrupt.'

Another one of the 'Power Nine' and the Mox Mono artifacts, the Mox Ruby, allows Planeswalkers to gain extra mana each turn. 

When Planeswalkers combine the Mox Ruby with other Mox gems within the 'Power Nine,' they can boost their mana, playing better cards simultaneously.

Timetwister - $4,000 - $6,000

Timetwister - $4,000 - $6,000

'Each player shuffles his or her hand and graveyard into his or her library, then draws seven cards. (Then put Timetwister into its owner's graveyard.).'

Another member of the 'Power Nine,' the Timetwister is a Sorcery card that can force opposing Planeswalkers, and even yourself, to start the game over. Planeswalkers can also use it to recall all the most powerful cards on the deck and force the opposing to draw a hand that may put them at a disadvantage.

Mox Jet - $1,500 - $10,000

Mox Jet - $1,500 - $10,000

'Add 1 black mana to your mana pool. Tapping this artifact can be played as an interrupt.'

The Mox Jet Mono Artifact allows Planeswalkers to obtain an extra point of black mana per turn, authorizing Planeswalkers to cast some of the most powerful spells in the game.  

Mox Jet will undoubtedly help you win all your matches if you're in the mood for some serious battle.

If you're down for this collectible card, don't expect much change as most

sellers list the card for $10,000.

Mox Sapphire - $2,000 - $13,000

'Add 1 blue mana to your mana pool. Tapping this artifact can be played as an interrupt.'

This mono artifact is the last member of the notorious 'Power Nine' and the most valuable Mox gem. As mentioned earlier, blue cards have a unique ability that makes them expensive in the eyes of Planeswalkers. 

Out of all cards in the game, the Mox Sapphire is the most powerful one in the game, so fear your future opponents.

Ancestral Recall - $3,500 to $15,000

Ancestral Recall - $3,500 to $15,000

'Draw 3 cards or force opponent to draw 3 cards.'

The Instant card allows Planeswalkers to draw three extra cards or force the opposing Planeswalker to do the same. If your hand isn't looking pleasing, use Ancestral Recall to raise backup cards to help you win.

Black Lotus - $100,000 - $250,000

Black Lotus - $100,000 - $250,000

The most expensive Magic: The Gathering card of all time.

'Adds 3 mana of any single color of your choice to your mana pool, then is discarded. Tapping this artifact can be played as an interrupt.'

The most infamous card in the game, the Black Lotus, is by far the most expensive on this list. However, as expensive as it may be, it is banned in most formats. 

When a Planeswalker possesses this card, they can use powerful cards whenever and wherever they want, at no cost. According to a recent auction, the mouth-watering price is estimated at around $166,000.

Final Call

Unbelievably, someone would spend $166,000 for a card. Planeswalkers must be dedicated to the trading card game, whatever floats these Planeswalkers' boats. 

From the Time Vault to the Black Lotus, this is the list of the top ten most expensive Magic: The Gathering cards.
