Magic: The Gathering Top 7 Random Card 5

Today I will be using a feature on gatherer to take 7 random cards in the history of Magic: The Gathering and rank them and state the reason. Here are the cards:


Plague Dogs, Yuki-Onna, Thrun the Last Troll, Kird Ape, Riot Spikes, Faith’s Fetters, Twincast


7.  Yuki-Onna – Most of Kamigawa were pretty bad cards. That really kept spirit tribal decks from really taking off. This card can be a nice utility to recur artifact destruction, and can also have some combat trick potential, with Arcane instants


6. Riot Spikes – Riot Spikes is a utility aura. It can be used to kill a 1/1, or give your flier two extra power. If you were hoping to use it offensively, I would recommend Unholy Strength, but it isn’t that great of a card.


5. Plague Dogs – Plague Dogs is a little expensive for my taste, but you can really ruin a lot of small creatures’ day and draw a card at the same time by using his ability. Again, not a great card, but I’ve seen worse attempts at this kind of effect. I’d recommend cycling Decree of Pain instead


4. Faith’s Fetters – Besides netting you four life, Faith’s Fetters can potentially stop a creature, artifact or planeswalker in their tracks. Against any deck that has no enchantment destruction, it basically makes the permanent useless forever.


3. Twincast – This spell can be really useful in a few ways. The first is obviously to ride the coattails of a very expensive spell, such as Time Stretch. You can also use it in a counter war to let your spells resolve.


2. Thrun, the Last Troll – Thrun is also one of the last creatures to be printed with the words: “cannot be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control. It is a pretty solid creature, a 4/4 for 4. It can also regenerate for two mana. There was a lot of hype around this card when it came out, but it has dropped in price significantly.


1. Kird Ape – Kird Ape was a card that was printed in From the Vault: Legends. This card made zoo decks what they are, and having a 2/3 on the second turn ready to attack is no laughing matter.


You can buy these cards and more on, where you can find great low prices and many rewards programs and giveaways.
