There's several cards from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set "Journey Into Nyx" which are worth significantly more than the $3.99 retail price of a booster pack. Recognizing these rares is crucial should you decide to trade with another player. Here's our list of the top ten "Journey Into Nyx" money cards to look out for as of this article's publication date.
You'll want to make sure to watch out for these hot rares in your "Journey Into Nyx" limited pools at your local game store or on "Magic Online. These "Journey Into Nyx" chase rares can be leveraged to your advantage in order to fund additional events. Alternatively you can trade one of the more expensive cards in the set for an inordinate amount of common, uncommon, and inexpensive rare "Magic" cards in order to significantly build up your collection and make many more decks.
It's very important that you realize "Magic: The Gathering" cards are only worth as much as someone is willing to pay or trade for them. They're most valuable during a prerelease and the first few weeks after release. As more "Journey Into Nyx" cards enter the secondary market from drafting, sealed events, and "Magic Online" redemption, prices will be reduced significantly. Only the cards which have proven themselves staples will remain high in value. A couple "sleeper" cards which are "discovered" and featured in breakout decks will also climb in price.
Because the price of "Magic" cards can fluctuate so rapidly, we strongly suggest that you always look up the prices of any cards involved in a trade from a reputable online dealer.
