Best Phyrexia All Will Be One Cards

The MTG market has been BOOMING lately and prices have been holding pretty steady on new sets. It’s a great time to be a Magic player and collector for sure! Today I’m sharing one new and very popular set that has 10-cards that have some value and that could be primed to continue climbing in value. This list we’ve compiled are the TOP 10 Best Cards in Phyrexia All Will be One, Magic’s very popular set just released on February 10, 2023.

When it comes to determining the best or most valuable cards in a set, we all know that things can change over time. What is valuable right now might not be worth as much later down the road and vice versa. A simple Magic rule change can make one card normally worth pennies skyrocket and make other cards drop like a bag of soggy wet magic cards you found in your flooded basement! That’s why analytics are so important when evaluating Magic cards for investment purposes.

And “best cards” is subjective as well. Some cards are best to play, other cards are best as long term investments. So in this case since we’re all about investing in MTG cards, when we talk Best we’re talking mainly about VALUE.

So for this exercise in finding the 10 best cards in Phyrexia All Will Be One, we’ll use multiple data sources to gather numbers, including some of the most popular sites. Those sites include MTGPrice.com, the TCGPlayer price guide and MTGGoldfish to name a few. I’ve found their data to be kept up to date and accurate compared to how the market is reacting to the cards.

The cards chosen for this top 10 list do not have anything to do with my personal opinion. Rather they are chosen based on a study of each card across multiple data sources. And these are all just the regular version cards….no foil, showcase, oil slick, etc. So without further ado, here are the Top 10 Best Cards in Phyrexia All Will Be One.

#10 – Tyrranax Rex

Tyrranax Rex

Tyrranax Rex Average Price: $6.00

This spell can’t be countered.
Trample, ward , haste
Toxic 4 (Players dealt combat damage by this creature also get four poison counters.)

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook:  1.5 Stars

Who doesn’t like a big green 8/8 Dinosaur! I think I speak for many casual players when I say I like creatures like this. They make building decks and playing on the kitchen table fun! From an investment standpoint, not much to say here. It’s a low priced Mythic Rare that will probably stay in the $5-6 range for the foreseeable future. Great for players, not so much for investors. But this is the kind of card that makes Magic so fun and such a great game! Play this one….don’t invest in it though.

#9 – Solphim, Mayhem Dominu

solphim mayhem dominus
Solphim, Mayhem Dominu Average Price: $7.00

If a source you control would deal noncombat damage to an opponent or permanent an opponent controls, it deals double that damage to that player or permanent instead.
red phyrexian mana red phyrexian mana, Discard two cards: Put an indestructible counter on Solphim, Mayhem Dominus. (red phyrexian mana can be paid with either or 2 life.)

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook: 

What I like about this red Phyrexian Horror is that players are excited about it and boards everywhere online are talking about how to build decks around Solphim. When players like a card, that’s a good sign and it starts to peak the interests of collectors and investors. Now, this card is slightly off it’s high prices but it’s still hovering in the $7-9 range which is where it will probably stay. As mentioned, we’re only talking the regular version (not foil) so there’s probably more opportunities for profit on the tougher foil, showcase or even the Oil Slick versions. But for the regular version, there’s not much potential for massive long term growth. Still a great card and one to watch if prices drop.

#8 – Phyrexian Obliterator

phyrexian obliterator

Phyrexian Obliterator Average Price: $8.00

Trample
Whenever a source deals damage to Phyrexian Obliterator, that source’s controller sacrifices that many permanents.

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook: 

Prices for the Phyrexian Obliterator were about $10 when booster boxes first hit shelves in February, but they have fallen off as of late. To be expected as more packs get ripped. However, it’s still a pretty powerful card with some of the best artwork in the entire set. I like the card, I’m a fan of black and who doesn’t like a creature called Phyrexian Horror! The $8.00 price tag is on the higher end….I still think you can pick them up for $6-7 pretty easily if you try. It’s a cool Mythic Rare, but you won’t see me stashing away 100-card lots anytime soon. Not a lot of long term value there unless you can pick them up super cheap.

#7 – Ichormoon Gauntlet

ichormoon gauntlet

Ichormoon Gauntlet Average Price: $8.00

Planeswalkers you control have “[0]: Proliferate” and “[-12]: Take an extra turn after this one.”
Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, choose a counter on target permanent. Put an additional counter of that kind on that permanent.

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook: 

I think the consensus is that this card is highly overrated. Players feel it needs another card to be playable (probably a planeswalker) and it hasn’t caught on yet with deck builders. Could we see a time down the road where someone comes up with a new way to play Ichormoon Gauntlet? Sure, but for now it’s not high on want lists and it’s simply a Mythic Rare with some cool art. It’s not worth investing in and hardly worth the $8 price tag I’m seeing.

#6 – All Will Be One

All Will Be One

All Will Be One Average Price: $9.00

Whenever you put one or more counters on a permanent or player, All Will Be One deals that much damage to target opponent, creature an opponent controls, or planeswalker an opponent controls.

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook: 

It’s a Red Mythic Rare. That’s about all I can say here. Just not overly thrilled about the card and I think a lot of people share that sentiment. The art is just meh….the ability is meh….the price is meh. I can take it or leave it. Maybe players can find a nice home for this card, but from an investor’s point of view I’m not running out to my local game store to load up on this card. The $9 price tag is generous – don’t expect much more any time soon.

#5 – Vraska, Betrayal’s Sting

vraska betrayals sting

Vraska, Betrayal’s Sting Average Price: $9.00

Compleated (Black Phyrexian Mana can be paid with Swamp Black Mana or 2 life. If life was paid, this planeswalker enters with two fewer loyalty counters.)
[0]: You draw a card and you lose 1 life. Proliferate
[-2]: Target creature becomes a Treasure artifact with “Tap, Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color” and loses all other card types and abilities.
[-9]: If target player has fewer than nine poison counters, they get a number of poison counters equal to the difference.”
|6|

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook:  3.5 Stars

Vraska is a solid planeswalker with awesome abilities and most believe it will see a lot of play. It’s hard not to like a Black planeswalker that kills creatures and allows you the ability to draw cards! The price is also super reasonable right now in that under $10 range. It’s definitely off the initial-release highs when prices were closer to $15-17 so that’s good for players and collectors. Do I see it rising that much more over the next 6-12 months? Probably not but the value from a players standpoint is definitely there. Great value card if you can find it for $9-10.

#4 – Sword of Forge and Frontier

sword of forge and frontier

Sword of Forge and Frontier Average Price: $18.00

Equipped creature gets +2/+2 and has protection from red and from green.
Whenever equipped creature deals combat damage to a player, exile the top two cards of your library. You may play those cards this turn. You may play an additional land this turn.
Equip 2 Colorless Mana.

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook: 

Some of these Mythic Rare cards are so powerful in the game it’s ridiculous. Sword of Forge and Frontier is absolutely no different. It’s a 3-drop that can be played in just about any deck to beef up a creature, but those added abilities to play 2-cards (and exile them) AND play an additional Land card take this one over the top. It’s $15-20 price tag is reasonable and I know pack rippers will be happy to land this insane artifact for sure. As with most new cards, watch the pricing as it could jump up and down over the next few months. Still super reasonable and has potential to see that $30+ range, but it will be a while.

#3 – Atraxa, Grand Unifier

atraxa grand unifier

Atraxa, Grand Unifier Average Price: $22.00

Flying, vigilance, deathtouch, lifelink
When Atraxa, Grand Unifier enters the battlefield, reveal the top ten cards of your library. For each card type, you may put a card of that type from among the revealed cards into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. (Artifact, battle, creature, enchantment, instant, land, planeswalker, and sorcery are card types.)

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook:  4.5 Stars

Atraxa is just insanely powerful and the price tag is being driven by its crazy abilities. It’s bad enough as an opposing player to deal with a flying vigilant Phyrexian Angel that looks like it could rip your deck a new one, but the ability to load your hand with up to 10-cards is just a massive difference maker. I can see this card continuing to rise over time as it’s so versatile and powerful in the game. The price tag is reasonable too. Great $20-ish card with still a ton of potential once the MTG playing community figures out how to take advantage of its abilities.

#2 – Mondrak, Glory Dominus

mondrak glory dominus

Mondrak, Glory Dominus Average Price: $28.00

If one or more tokens would be created under your control, twice that many of those tokens are created instead.
1 colorless mana white phyrexian mana white phyrexian mana, Sacrifice two other artifacts and/or creatures: Put an indestructible counter on Mondrak, Glory Dominus. (white phyrexian mana can be paid with either White Plains Mana or 2 life.)

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook:  4.5 Stars

Jeez, another white card that is high on the list. Being a black-deck kinda guy I tend to steer clear of white cards but Mondrak is ridiculous and highly desirable right now in the market. Creating twice the amount of tokens and a reasonably cost effective ability to become indestructible? My gosh, no wonder the card is approaching $30. Great card, great potential in the game which means it should continue to do well. Look for prices to stabilize in the $20-30 range for quite a while before making a bigger run to $50 (but that’s a few years off.)

#1 – Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines

elesh norn mother of machines

Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines Average Price: $32.00

Vigilance
If a permanent entering the battlefield causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time.
Permanents entering the battlefield don’t cause abilities of permanents your opponents control to trigger.

Magic Card Investor Investment Outlook:  5 Stars

OK, so I’m not thrilled it’s a white card, but it’s super powerful and players and collectors both really like Elesh Norn. This along with the massive demand for this card and its absolute crazy abilities to double abilities or cancel those of your opponent will continue to drive the value on this card. Cast this card and it could be GAME OVER for your opponent for sure. It’s a powerful card that is here to stay and I can see it getting closer to the $50 mark in another 12-18 months.
