Pack Crackin': Scars of Mirrodin

Magic Untapped cracks open some Scars of Mirrodin booster packs.

In 2010, Magic: The Gathering returned to one of its most popular planes, Mirrodin, for a set known as Scars of Mirrodin.  Though, the set would only set the stage for the eventual coming of New Phyrexia.

Despite being overshadowed by the block's other two sets, Mirrodin Besieged and New Phyrexia, the set still boasts a number of good and relatively valuable cards.

Topping that list is the popular and powerful mana rock, Mox Opal, which clocks in (at time of writing) at $52.99 according to MTGStocks, followed by Blackcleave Cliffs ($43.63), Wurmcoil Engine ($31.23), and Darkslick Shores ($30.00).  There are also a nice selection of cards worth between $10 and $30, including (for example) Platinum Emperion ($21.50), Venser, the Sojourner ($17.86), and Painful Quandary ($17.71).

Magic Untapped picked up these Scars of Mirrodin booster packs from a rather nifty shop called Gunjah the Bead Forest in the town of Cedar City, Utah.

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