It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of chasing rares and special printings of cards, but increasingly one of the best ways to get a profit when you crack open product (or accept bulk trade-ins) is to set aside the shinier cards and look closer to the middle of a pack. Some sets, especially premium reprint sets like the one we’ll be talking about today, are hiding gold in cards with silver or even common black set symbols. There are a lot of commons and uncommons valued over $1 to be on the lookout for!

Commander Masters is a set that received mixed reviews from the community, however many of the high value reprints in the set have driven solid sales regardless. While rare treatments have gotten most of the attention, there are a staggering selection of over 30 cards in the set currently valued at $1 or more, with still more that are always threatening to break that dollar benchmark.

Unsurprisingly, given the name of the set, high value cards in Commander Masters are driven by Commander players. That means the vast majority of the valued commons and uncommons in the set are staples in the format: primarily cards that generate mana. This means you’ll see a lot of mana rocks and lands in the list, but it also has some staple removal and even a few finishers!

Most of the cards listed below meet this entirely expected criteria, though it’s worth highlighting Exsanguinate and Vandalblast as exciting outliers. Exsanguinate is a card that has consistently slowly climbed, representing an excellent one-card win condition for any deck running black. Similarly, Vandalblast hits a lot of problematic artifacts, allowing it to maintain its demand even with consistent reprints. Let’s look at all the commons and uncommons that are worth over $1 in Commander Masters:
