Commons and Uncommons — the words themselves feel like they’re already comparatively worthless alongside the likes of Rares and Mythics. But the words themselves may be lying to you. No, hiding in packs (especially in criminally under opened packs), you can find an almost startling number of commons and uncommons that are surprisingly profitable. 

There are an abundance of commons and uncommons worth $1 or more, which can add up extremely quickly when you take the time to comb through your collection. While this is true for all sets, it becomes much more true when a set isn’t getting opened enough to flood the market with bulk cards.

Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur’s Gate, is almost offensive in how it underperformed. Few people wanted it, it didn’t get opened near enough, and despite being a great draft and Commander experience, it has languished on some shelves. This is a mistake, in my not-so-humble-opinion, but it is already seeing a resurgence!

You can take full advantage of both facts: the slow recognition of the value in the set, and the fact that you can find some high-value pulls in your Baldur’s Gate boxes. Let’s look at all the commons and uncommons that are worth over $1 in Battle for Baldur’s Gate:

  1. Skullclamp
  2. Mindcrank
  3. Lightning Greaves
  4. Propaganda
  5. Mother of Runes
  6. Three Visits
  7. Herald’s Horn
  8. Irenicus’s Vile Duplication
  9. Patrier’s Seal
  10. Reliquary Tower
  11. Curse of Opulence
  12. Changeling Outcast
  13. Tainted Isle
  14. Decanter of Endless Water
  15. Talisman of Dominance
  16. Terrain Generator
  17. Sakura-Tribe Elder
  18. Bojuka Bog
  19. Swiftfoot Boots
  20. Zulaport Cutthroat
  21. Nature’s Lore
  22. Inspiring Leader (Foil Etched)
  23. Agent of the Iron Thrones (Foil Etched)
  24. Sol Ring
  25. Deadly Dispute
  26. Beast Within
  27. Thought Vessel
  28. Kodama’s Reach
  29. Drown in the Loch
  30. Mahadi, Emporium Master (Foil Etched)

These 30 items are a stellar starting point, but it’s also worth noting that there are plenty more that are scratching the surface of that $1 line. Even more notable, I strongly suspect that many of the cards with the Foil Etched treatment will prove popular over time, making them potentially worth keeping on hand even if they haven’t broken $1 yet.
