Now that Wizards of the Coast’s newest Magic: The Gathering set Dominaria has been released, many players are in search of new cards to add to their decks. But which new Magic: The Gathering cards from Dominaria are worth your hard earned money? There are at least 10 must own Magic: The Gathering cards from Dominaria that every Magic player should own.

Don’t confuse this list with our “Top 10 Most Expensive Magic: The Gathering Cards From Dominaria” list. For the purposes of this list, we’re excluding expensive mythic rares such as Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and Karn, Scion of Urza. In fact, you won’t find many rares here at all. Just because a card is pricey doesn’t mean everyone should have it. Some of the best cards in the game can be found at common and uncommon. We’re also excluding cards that have been reprinted like Gideon’s Reproach and Icy Manipulator (although you’ll want both of those cards if you don’t already own them). Instead, we’re focusing on brand new Magic: The Gathering cards making they’re debut in Dominaria.

For years, Savannah Lions was the best one white mana creature. These days there are plenty of amazing one drops. Dauntless Bodyguard is a fantastic example of a must own Magic: The Gathering card from Dominaria.

Precognition Field isn’t nearly as powerful as Future Sight was. Precognition Field doesn’t cost as much mana nor does it require such a heavy commitment to blue, either. That means you can run it in any deck to reap the rewards.

There’s been a lot of Terror variants over the years, and “dies to Doom Blade” is a phrase uttered with an almost religious reverence when evaluating creatures. Unlike Doom Blade, though, Cast Down will actually destroy black creatures.

Yes, it’s situational. Yes, there are plenty of arguably better cards.
