Double Masters released this past Friday, and we’ve wasted no time diving into the data mines. This latest Masters set had broad appeal among enfranchised Magic players – including Modern, Legacy, Vintage, and Commander fans – and we were eager to share which cards our customers preordered most. Check out our Top 10 Double Masters best sellers by volume!
10) Atraxa, Praetors’ Voice
Atraxa is one of Magic’s most popular commanders, and it looks like she reached some new fans with the release of Double Masters. Get ready to see a lot more Planeswalkers and poison counters at your next virtual Commander game!
9) Sword of Fire and Ice
Two of the five Swords that were reprinted in Double Masters made it onto this list. Sword of Fire and Ice is a popular Stoneforge Mystic target in Legacy, a format where incremental card advantage and small utility creatures reign supreme.
8) Mana Echoes
Many Commander players have a soft spot for red build-around enchantments, and Mana Echoes is an excellent one. You’ll usually see this card in tribal creature decks, such as Slivers or Goblins, or token-generation decks like The Locust God and Purphoros, God of the Forge.
7) Wurmcoil Engine
Coming in at #7 is everyone’s favorite pair of wurms in a wurm suit. Wurmcoil Engine has long been a staple card in Modern and Commander alike due to its fantastic stats and ability to withstand board wipes.
6) Sword of Feast and Famine
There’s that second Sword! Sword of Feast and Famine is the most widely-played Sword in Modern and saw a substantial increase in play when Stoneforge Mystic was unbanned.
5) Noble Hierarch
Noble Hierarch is one of Magic’s best one-mana creatures. From Modern to Legacy to Cube, it supports creature-based strategies with extra mana and its exalted ability.
4) Cyclonic Rift
Cyclonic Rift is one of Commander’s most polarizing cards – and the most popular Commander staple during our Double Masters presale. Depending on which side of the Rift you’re on, you may have your entire game plan upended or run away with the game completely.
3) Walking Ballista
Walking Ballista just received a ban in Pioneer, but that didn’t stop our customers from preordering it. This all-star artifact has plenty of applications, from Modern and Cube to Commander.
2) Stoneforge Mystic
With so many Swords on the list, it makes sense that Stoneforge Mystic would be somewhere in the mix, too. This powerful creature can tutor up Batterskulls and Jittes with ease and put them directly onto the battlefield to evade counterspells.
Of course, the best way to disrupt a Stoneforge Mystic is with a timely discard spell targeting the equipment. Thoughtseize has been a staple of the Modern format since its inception, and while you won’t find many Modern tabletop tournaments these days, players are still eager to cast this card at their kitchen tables.
