Favorite Magic: the Gathering card?

We talk about yo-yos a lot here, but I know that a few of us have to play Magic. With the new Eldrain set coming out soon I wanted to know, what’s your favorite card? Why?

Mine is:

Because there’s nothing scarier than an immortal squid monster from space.

I had a cryptolith fragment deck when I played that was my favorite

That’s a brutal little card if you don’t catch it right away. I tend to let cards like that go for waaaay too long haha.

I had the sweetest mill deck until some clown stole it from my local game shop on game night. Never went back to that shop or the game.

I love the art and spell for Glimpse the Unthinkable, and it was probably why the deck got stolen. I never won, but it was a good time nonetheless.

Man, I haven’t played in years, so I have to go with a classic:

I usually play mill decks, but I love any card with a goblin on it, particularly Krenko

Been several years since I last kept up. I was running a black/white/red Boros/Aristocrat deck that centered around Cartel Aristocrat, Falkenrath Aristocrat, and Boros Reckoner, who was probably my favorite. He just constantly throws a wrench in people’s strategies.

Ugin. Crazy how many times I’ve pulled off his ultimate. Awesome that he was actually playable outside the kitchen table too!

Also, way back when…when artifact lands were still legal in extended I ran a super fun soulscour deck that was surprisingly effective.
Completely kitchen table casual of course. But man I loved the deck!

I personally hate sitting across from Tron in modern. Playing Zoo it used to be a 50/50 matchup, but ugin made it like 70/30 in Trons favor and it makes me sad

I played Mono Blue Tron and did pretty well with it online and especially at my local scene. Sadly the deck falls apart anymore. Green tron decks destroyed my deck like it does with most others. (:angry: freaking Ulamog :angry:).

I admit. It does take a way a little fun. I made a Tron counter deck. If it draws properly it’s brutal. You can’t play anything and by turn 4 I have Emrakul equipped with Lightning Greaves. Maybe ulamog and fraying sanity if the game runs long.

Ulamog will get you! Destroys your draw. I run a copy of each of the Titans. I also had a deck that was fun. Fleet Swallower plus Fraying Sanity made for an insta mill.
