Top 10 Most Expensive Modern Horizons 3 MH3 Cards


We’re almost done with the pre-release weekend for Modern Horizons 3. How well did you fare in the Sealed environment so far? Did you win games? Did you get great cards? Were you able to get some of the most expensive Modern Horizons 3 cards from the set? If you’re unsure, then we could at least let you know about the top 10.

Top 10 Most Expensive Modern Horizons 3 MTG Cards (As of June 9, 2024)

Any new Modern-centric set will always have a lot of eyes on it. Even if Standard is still the most pushed format by Wizards of the Coast, it’s no secret that there are also a big number of Modern players in the world. While many of you will also be looking at this list looking for new cards to add to your Commander Decks, there will definitely be many decks these cards can call home.

Also, in the interest of keeping this list as informative as possible, we are not including any cards that might have been price gauged by the market. That means, for a card to be considered in this list, the WeeklyΔ% of the card shouldn’t be more than +/-10%. We are also not including the Serialized Eldrazi cards from this list as regardless of how much they’re listed, the actual prices might vary wildly.

(All Prices are based on MTG Goldfish prices)

10. Necrodominance (Retro Foil) – $48.73

Necrodominance (Retro Foil) - Modern Horizons 3

Card advantage is so important that even a bootleg Necropotence can easily make an appearance in this list. It’s Necropotence with a slightly different timing trigger and has a more exile-heavy downside. While Necropotence only exiles your discards, Necrodominance will exile anything sent to your graveyard from anywhere.

The maximum hand size imposed by this card is the bigger problem than the exile clause. However, we can imagine many black decks still making good use of this card given how black doesn’t usually have a lot of ways to draw cards.

9. Bloodstained Mire (Borderless Foil) – $51.30

Bloodstained Mire (Borderless Foil) - Modern Horizons 3

Of course, the allied fetch lands are also expected to make an appearance in this list. Bloodstained Mire is one of the more popular allied fetch lands, with the Rakdos color combination being one of the more popular ones in deck composition.

8. Flooded Strand (Retro Foil) – $53.02

Flooded Strand (Retro Foil) - Modern Horizons 3

The Retro Foil version of Flooded Strand also makes an appearance in this list. Honestly, there are a couple of Fetch Lands in this list of the top 10 most expensive Modern Horizons 3 cards, but that is already to be expected. Just a rule of thumb for you value hunters out there: Retro Frame usually beats Borderless. But I won’t complain whichever one I get!

7. Polluted Delta (Retro Foil) – $60.05

Polluted Delta (Retro Foil) - Modern Horizons 3Polluted Delta remains to be the most popular Fetch Land in any format, so it’s also no wonder that the Retro Frame version of Polluted Delta found its way in this list as the highest-ranked Fetch Land for the set.

6. Ocelot Pride (Borderless Foil) – $60.09

Ocelot Pride (Borderless Foil) - Modern Horizons 3

A 1/1 Mythic for one white mana makes it to our Top 10, and this furry cat has a lot of upsides that it just goes to show you don’t need a great stat line to make it an effective threat in the battlefield. Its token creation effect is great either in the early game or the late game. At the start of the game, this effect forces enemies to commit blockers and push the tempo up. In the late game, it potentially floods the board.

A great card for white tokenator decks, we’re sure that this will also make waves in mono white Commander decks and Rin and Seri decks in particular.

5. Flare of Denial (Borderless Foil) – $67.56

Flare of Denial (Borderless Foil) - Modern Horizons 3

We don’t really need even more blue no cost counter spells, yet here we are. This card’s only downside is that most of the time, blue doesn’t want to have any creature spells in its deck at all, but this can easily fit in any other non mono-blue archetypes. Sacrificing a nontoken blue creature may even have some upside if it’s an aristocrat or graveyard-matters card. All else fail, it’s still a three-mana counterspell.

4. Sorin of House Markov (Borderless Textured Foil) – $84.46

Sorin of House Markov (Borderless Textured Foil) - Modern Horizons 3

The only DFC in our list, Sorin of House Markov is a 1/4 for one colorless and one black with Lifelink and Extort. This goes into any life gain matters deck and it’s very easy to trigger his flip effect. Once flipped, Sorin, Ravenous Neonate retains its Extort, floods the board with food tokens for even more lifegain, can lifedrain opponents, and take control of opponents’ creatures.

Even if you’re not necessarily running a lifegain matters deck, Sorin of House Markov can still flip itself thanks to Extort, although it’ll take you longer to do so. However, why run this card at all if you’re not running lifegain? But it’s still great to have an extra option for flipping in case you have a disadvantageous board state.

3. Ulamog, the Defiler (Borderless Concept Eldrazi) – $95.00

Ulamog, the Defiler (Borderless) - Modern Horizons 3

Most Eldrazi titans create prohibitive board states and totally flip the advantage, even if most of these cards have high mana costs. Some Eldrazi titans allow themselves to resolve by having a no counter flaws, and honestly, missing that feature is the only downside of Ulamog, the Defiler. It already mills half of the opponent’s library just by casting it, not needing to resolve, has a Ward that makes it hard to eliminate, and has stat line boosts and Annihilator based on the exiled cards in the game. A monstrous finisher if we’ve ever seen one.

2. Ulamog, the Defiler (Retro Foil) – $96.72

Ulamog, the Defiler (Retro Foil) - Modern Horizons 3

We’ve already discussed the upsides of this Eldrazi Titan, but just keep in mind that again, Retro Frame trumps Borderless, even Concept Eldrazi treatments, when it comes to value.

1. Kaalia of the Vast (Borderless Frame Break Foil) – $169.99

Kaalia of the Vast (Borderless Frame Break Foil) - Modern Horizons 3

Kaalia of the Vast is one of the most popular Commanders out there, and it’s almost always the Commander of the 100 that gets the special treatment from players who run them. Right now, this Borderless Frame Break Foil of Kaalia of the Vast can be considered as one of the most blinged out versions of a Commander there is, and so it commands a high price in the secondary market. It’s not only rare but usable in formats, making it a very chase-worthy card.

We’re sure that these cards will still fluctuate in value as we draw closer to release day, but if you do manage to draw these cards from your pre-release packs, then congratulations! Check back again next week to see what could be an entirely different list, or check out our other article on just how likely you could pull these cards from Play Booster and Collector Booster Packs.
