    alright I'm looking for important cards I need to be getting a hold of again preferably commons and uncommons. The kind of stuff you don't want to be without. Counterspell, Sakura-Tribe Elder, blastoderm. That kinda thing post'em and help me out. This isn't really a trade thread as I'm not looking to trade I'm more looking for you all to help me make a wish list.

    Sort of like the staple cards that you'd want to include in any deck with the right colors. Obviously, this will vary depending on your playing style, but here's some recent cards off the top of my head that I use in a lot of decks:

    Mana-Fixers
    Sakura-Tribe Elder
    Kodama's Reach
    Rampant Growth
    Llanowar Elves

    Creature Removal
    Terror
    Dark Banishing
    Rend Flesh
    Pacifism
    Pillory of the Sleepless

    Bounce
    Boomerang
    Repeal

    Discard
    Distress
    Coercion
    Castigate

    Direct Damage
    Shock
    Lightning Helix

    Utility
    Naturalize
    Putrefy
    Mortify

    And depending on what you're looking for, there's a whole bunch or other cards I could name - card drawing, control, graveyard recursion, evasion, efficient creatures, etc.

    Two of my personal favorite "can't live without" cards are Isochron Scepter and Eternal Witness.
  3. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Turgy's list differs from mine a lot because I am a chump. So I won't bother not listing cards he already covered. Also, how did this thread wind up in classic questions?
