The Top 5 Cards in Wilds of Eldraine
After the thrill of Commander Masters and the buzz of The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth, it's refreshing to refocus on the Standard set with the release of "Wilds of Eldraine." This set has been highly anticipated for its fresh takes on mechanics and its potential impact on both the Commander and constructed scenes. So without further ado, let's dive into what you've all been waiting for—the top 5 standout cards from this fantastical set.
Virtue of Knowledge
We kick off our list with Virtue of Knowledge, a card that's clearly inspired by Panharmonicon-style effects. What sets it apart, though, is its Adventure mechanic, "Vantress Visions," allowing you to copy target activated or triggered ability. While doubling up on enter-the-battlefield abilities is nothing new, the Adventure mechanic adds a layer of versatility to this card. Whether you've got Gadwick, the Wizened or Mulldrifter making an appearance, this Enchantment is a Commander gem.
Moonshaker Cavalry takes the second spot, and for a good reason. With flying and the ability to give all your creatures flying and a stat boost until end of turn, it's a White player's dream come true. Labeled as the "White Craterhoof Behemoth," it's an instant win condition for White-heavy Commander builds. And with compatibility with cards like Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines or Panharmonicon, it's a card that can instantly shift the battlefield in your favor.
No Magic set feels complete without some old favorites, and Doubling Season in the Enchanting Tales series is no exception. As a green Commander staple, the card needs no introduction. However, this time around, it features some unique art under the title "The Goose Mother," blending perfectly with Eldraine's whimsical theme.
Beseech the Mirror
Next up is Beseech the Mirror, a card that's been creating quite a stir in the Magic community. It's essentially a tutor with an improvised Kicker cost, thanks to the new Bargain mechanic. While it's expected to make waves in Modern and Legacy, it's in Commander where this card shines the brightest. Whether you're playing Prosper, Tome-Bound or K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Beseech the Mirror offers versatility and power, all wrapped in one.
Last but certainly not least, we have Rhystic Study in a breathtaking Confetti Foil finish. As one of the best Enchantments in Commander, Rhystic Study has always been a high-demand card. But with this new foil treatment, it gains even more collector's value. With a drop rate of less than 3% in Collector Boosters, it's a rare find that combines value, aesthetic appeal, and gameplay impact.
Wilds of Eldraine promises to be a groundbreaking set, with these top 5 cards leading the charge. Whether you're a Commander aficionado or a Standard enthusiast, these cards offer something for everyone. While it's hard to say how they'll ultimately shape the meta, one thing is clear—these are cards that you'll be thrilled to open in your next booster pack.
