Value: 340$

11. Transmute Artifact

8. Land Equilibrium

What’s Great About Land Equilibrium:

  • This is the ultimate counter for any and all ramp-based decks, they simply can’t play the game if you have this out. It’s extremely good and it’s only been printed twice so it’s become very valuable

Value: 430$

7. Gifts Given

6. Capture of Jingzhou

What’s Great About Capture of Jingzhou:

4. Intuition

What’s Great About Intuition:

3. Time Walk

What’s Great About Time Walk:

2. Ancestral Recall

What’s Great About Ancestral Recall:

  • This is also one of those super broken cards, even back when it was printed. It’s already amazing as it is, but it’s so easily abusable that the only thing keeping it from being used in every format is its insane price tag

  Value: 5600$

1. Timetwister

What’s Great About Timetwister:

This is the original wheel spell, and while there are newer cards with a similar effect, Timetwister has remained the most valuable for being not only the first but one of the best wheel spells
