Pack Crackin': Oath of the Gatewatch

Pack Crackin': Oath of the Gatewatch WOTC / MAGIC UNTAPPED

Liliana, Heretical Healer (WOTC)In 2016, Magic: The Gathering returned to one of its most popular planes, Zendikar, for a set known as Oath of the Gatewatch.

Say what you will about the Gatewatch as a story trope (yes, yes, we've all heard those all-too-original "Jacetice League" jokes by now), the set is actually better than many give it credit for.  And it boasts a handful of cards worth far more than the cost of a booster pack.

Topping that list is the Eldrazi titan, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, which clocks in (at time of writing) at $18.83 according to MTGStocks.  Other high value cards in the set include Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Kozilek's Return -- both of which book at more than ten bucks apiece.  There are also a handful of other cards worth mentioning:  Zendikar Resurgent, Though-Knot Seer, and Eldrazi Displacer with each card being worth between four and seven bucks each.

Magic Untapped only spent $9 ($2.99 per pack) on this trio of Oath of the Gatewatch booster packs (in French, no less), which were purchased from ABU Games in Boise, Idaho.

Watch the video below to see how fortunate (or unfortunate) our pulls were.
