Pack Crackin': Homelands

Magic Untapped opens up some Homelands booster packs.

Sometimes you've just got to do things old school.  And by that, we mean that we're cracking open a trio of booster packs from Homelands, which came out in October of 1995.

The 115 card set, which was sold in eight-card booster packs, is not considered to be very powerful or have any true chase cards.  It is nostalgic, however, and is also considered to be one of the worst and weakest sets ever printed in Magic: The Gathering history.  Still, there are some cards of note.

Topping the list is Digeridoo, a minotaur-tribal artifact that is valued right around $31.  Next on the list is Baron Sengir ($20), Koskun Falls ($17.25), Willow Priestess ($12), and Wall of Kelp ($9.75).  The common card Merchant Scroll, which lets its caster tutor for a blue instant spell, is also worth keeping an eye out for as it's listed at $7.20 despite its lack of rarity.

Magic Untapped spent about $18.00 ($5.99 per pack) on these three Homelands booster packs, which were purchased at Natural 20 Games in Henderson, Nevada.

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