MTG Assassin’s Creed’s Deadly Dimir Commander Gets 500% Price Spike

Basim Ibn Ashaq is highly sought after in the world of Universes Beyond: Assassin’s Creed as an unblockable Dimir card that is equally effective as both a Commander and a card draw engine.

Basim Ibn Ashaq is a crucial figure in the post-Desmond era of Assassin’s Creed. In Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, he is portrayed as a deceitful and hostile presence, representing the rebirth of Loki from the Isu. In Assassin’s Creed: Mirage, a prequel tale, players have the opportunity to assume the role of Basim and delve deeper into his character.

Mirage successfully shifted the series back to its stealth-action origins, after experimenting with RPG elements in previous releases. As a result, Assassin’s Creed fans greatly appreciated this exceptional addition to the series.

As a result, Basim has become one of the most memorable characters in Ubisoft’s long-running franchise, alongside iconic figures such as Ezio and Kassandra. This, combined with the card’s impressive mechanics, has caused its price to spike significantly since the launch of the Universes Beyond set.

The regular copies of Basim Ibn Ashaq have significantly increased in value from their starting price of $2.70, now reaching a median price of $15 on TCGplayer. The borderless showcase variants are even more expensive, with an average price of $26.67.

The Basim card has quickly become highly sought after by both MTG players and Assassin’s Creed fans due to its powerful gameplay. With a cost of only UB, Basim enters the field as a 2/2 creature that can gain a +1/+1 counter whenever it deals combat damage to a player.

Triggering this damage boost is exceptionally effortless, as Basim gains unblockable status whenever you cast a Historic spell, while also drawing you a card. With Artifacts, Sagas, and Legendaries all being classified as Historic, there are numerous options for players to activate Basim’s unblockable ability.

This card not only serves as a dependable focal point in a Dimir deck, but it also complements Ninja Commanders such as Satoru Umezawa and Yuriko, the Tiger’s Shadow, who excel at dealing unblockable damage.
