Here's the top ten "Theros" money cards as of this article's publication date.

Rares to watch:
Keep an eye out for these cards in your "Theros" limited pools while at your local game store or on "Magic Online. These top "Theros" cards can be leveraged to fund additional events or be exchanged for an inordinate amount of less expensive "Magic" cards to build up your collection and make more decks.
Keep in mind that "Magic: The Gathering" cards are only worth as much as someone is willing to pay or trade for them. They're generally at their height during a prerelease and the first few weeks afterwards until tournament results weed the cream from the crap. As more cards enter the market from drafting, sealed events, and "Magic Online" redemption, almost all of the cards will plummet in value aside from those few which have proven their worth. A couple "sleeper" cards that are "discovered" and featured in breakout decks will climb in price.
Because the prices of "Magic" cards can fluctuate so spontaneously, we strongly suggest you always check the prices of cards involved in any transaction from a reputable online dealer. Having an internet connected mobile device can help you save hundreds of dollars.
