Pack Crackin': Nemesis

Written by
Pack Crackin': Nemesis WOTC / MAGIC UNTAPPED

The middle set in Magic: The Gathering's Masques block, Nemesis came out in February of 2000.  Consisting of 143 cards (44 of which are rare), it's not a wholly overwhelming set in terms of power level.  That said, it is considered by some to be the best set in the block thanks to a few key singles and the fading mechanic, which made its debut in Nemesis.

Foils aside, Nemesis does not contain any cards worth more than about $15.  The closest is Moggcatcher, a rare that has seen a steady increase in value since June of 2020.  Other cards of note in the set include Tangle Wire, Kor Haven, Submerge, and Parallax Wave.  The commons Fanatical Devotion, Skyshroud Claim, and Daze are also worth a mention as (despite their lack of rarity) are all worth more than a dollar.

Magic Untapped spent about $22.00 ($10.99 per pack) on these two Nemesis booster packs, which were purchased at Darkside Games in Las Vegas, Nevada.
