What could be worse than Goblins of the Flarg?

Postby CthuluBBQ » Wed Jan 12, 2005 5:01 am

OK here's the challenge...

Since I always have fun bashing certain magic cards I need good ammo. Can anyone come up with what they think THE WORST MAGIC CARD EVER is? I can start things off with one stinking pile of crap...

Rakalite (BOO! HISS!)

...followed by Goblins of the Flarg for sheer WTF factor.

I dare somebody to beat me.

I think he means bad by sheer crapiness, not how much they wtfpwn you.

Goblins of the Flarg is tough, but its still a solid 1/1 for one red mana that only gets buried if someone has dwarves in play.

I think the most useless is the enchantment, Lich. Basically its a self played I lose button.

This thread is one Atomic and one Flac short of having the best avatars on the board all crowded into one area. Fast moving eye guy from X-Men, Booga the sexy beast bird, and dancing Gir who is both hypnotic and makes me chuckle every time I see him.

EDIT: "Sexy beast bird" was originally written as "sexy beat bird." He might make me jip with vigor, but I didn't mean to use beat as the adjective.

I can't tell you which care is the worst. I can tell you, however, any card I played will pretty much suck, anyway. I am horrible at magic, addictins as it is. :worry:

I forgot about Dunder's awesome avatar, from the best scene of that video. But his posting here just helps prove that this place is the gathering place of hawt avatars.

Worst magic card ever?
Well, hmm. Toughie. I can name a lot that suck, but only because there are dozens of cards that are blatantly better. One, for example: Hand of Death, from the Portal sets.
Hand of Death. Sorcery.
2B: Destroy target nonblack creature. It can't be regenerated.
Consider this:
Dark Banishing. Instant.
2B: Destroy target nonblack creature. It can't be regenerated.

More examples would be Grizzly Bears (there are SO many cards that are 100% blatantly better), Craw Wurm (there's another card that is identical, except also has trample), and numerous other cards from the core sets.

Every other card I've heard mentioned so far is not *that* bad. Goblins of the Flarg aren't great, but at least they have mountainwalk. And dwarves aren't that common. Rakalite can be very useful if you have enough mana, though not as good as other cards and it is a bit expensive. Fact or Fiction is *badass*. Stasis is great in the right deck, as is Winter Orb. Lich... yeah, it's not that great, but it can save your life in some cases, and if played proporly can be very nice.

Here's my bid for the worst card of all time though: Fear. 1B enchanted creature has fear. Why the *hell* you would play that card when you can play Dragon Shadow is beyond me, unless your'e playing some sort of limited tournament and can't get at Scourge. But Dragon Shadow... Not only do you get fear on the enchanted creature, but you also get +1/+0, and can play it for free from your graveyard if you play a creature with converted mana cost 6+. All for the same cost.

And then you had to fuck it up with your anime book keeper.
