    This poll goes back to the age old argument of Martyrdom Vs. Greater Good between Zadok and I. This isn't about most powerful or most useful,though they that does play a role, this is more about which card is the neatest and most fun. To make it more interesting I asked some other friends to contribute their favorite cards. Out of the 5 cards available I would like to know which card you would pick.

    The Cards Are:
    Greater Good
    Zur's Weirding
    Aku Djinn

    For those who don't know those cards read below everyone else can just vote.

    Greater Good
    Sacrifice a creature: Draw cards equal to the sacrificed
    creature's power, then choose and discard three cards.

    Until end of turn, you may redirect to target creature you
    control any amount of damage.

    Summon Legend
    W: Flying until end of turn. Target opponent gains 2 life.
    U: Return Phelddagrif to owner's hand. Target opponent may
    draw a card.
    G: Trample until end of turn. Put a Hippo token into play
    under target opponent's control. Treat this token as a 1/1
    green creature.

    Zur's Weirding
    Players play with their hands revealed.
    Whenever a player would draw a card, instead reveal it. Any other player may pay 2 life to put that card into its owner's graveyard. If no one does, that player then draws the card.

    Aku Djinn
    Summon Djinn
    During your upkeep, each opponent puts a +1/+1
    counter on each creature he or she controls.

    *for the record my vote is for Martyrdom.
  2. Zadok001 CPA Founder, Greater Good

    Well, oddly enough, I don't find this to be difficult personal decision at all. :) Greater Good has my vote, obviously. Although Pheldagrif is really, really neat...
  3. DÛke Memento Mori

    Tira! How could you do this to me man!? How could you do that!? A list of cards, with no Unmask? How? :)

    Anyway, I don't know about the other cards, but my brother has played Greater Good decks before against me, and I know how "jelious" I get when I see him drawing all those nice cards.

    I would have to vote for Unmask:), ooops, it's not on the list, so,
    I'll go with Zad on this one. I'll fly with Greater Good. Sounds razor:D.

    I can't recall ever seeing those cards being played, but Zur's Weirding seems to fit its title.

    Nature's Revolt would get my vote if it was on the list. Fun with Congregate and Overrun! :D
  5. nodnarb24 Supreme Overlord/The Rat King

    I have played against Zur's Weirding and that was freaking annoying. I have played with greater goods and they are really fun. So i'm going to have to say greater good.

    Hmmm...choices choices, I guess I would have to say Phelddagrif, although the are all interesting.
  7. Hawaiian mage CPA symbiod

    I can't believe you didn't put Chaos Orb up there. That is by far the best card ever...

    I guess my vote will go to Martyrdom. I love looking at the alternate art, and the idea of being able do so much damage to some Beebles you have in play is great.
  8. Apollo Bird Boy

    In order of preference:

    Greater Good
    Zur's Weirding
    Aku Djinn

    Sorry, Tira:)
  9. MrXarvox The Prettiest Man Alive

    Greater good

    I have a casual deck based around it, the whole deck comes into play with no summoning sickness,on the turn i get GG into play! muahahahahahahahaha!!!!
  10. Namielus Phrexian Plaguelord

    Phelddagrif looks fun to me...
  12. ErinPuff Token Female

    Phelddagrif! Phelddagrif! Hippos are neato.. :D
  13. Gizmo Composite: 1860


    I can do VERY nasty things with a Wierding.
  14. Ura Feline Lord of the Pit

    Aku! Aku! Aku!

    Actually for me its either wierding or the aku djinn cause I've had great decks based around both of them.
  15. galtwish Loudmouth

    Weirding is the most powerful card, but Aku Djinn is the most fun:
    Spike Cannibal
    any and all Blue creature stealers (Corpe Dance on the Thalakos Deciever? Spinal Embrace? Overtaker? Juxtapose? Reins of Power?) plus bad effects for the opponent (Altar of Dementia, Greater Good-shamelees plug-, just attacking)
    plus lots of other nefarious good stuff

  16. Dark_Tira Not quite dead yet.

    Results thus far:
    Greater Good 4
    Phelddagrif 4
    Martyrdom 2
    Zur's Weirding 2
    Aku Djinn 2
    Greater Good got a quick lead on everything else but the gap was soon closed by everyone's favorite Hippo generator. It looks like it's going to be close. The final count will be in a week, so even Martyrdom still has chance to make it to the top.

    Like Gizmo said, I can do some *nasty* things with Zur's Wierding
  18. dw51688 The Mad Scientist

    Greater good. Must agree with Zadok.
  19. Cateran Emperor Passed On

    Martyrdom, it can get screwed up if on a Mogg Maniac with Repercusion and Furnace of Rath on the board (That game ended in a draw, to say the least :D )
  20. Gizmo Composite: 1860

    This is a true story - I only ever played one game with an Aku Djinn deck, but it turned out to be against a Kobold deck.
    Yeah, great.

    Gizmo surveys opponent`s empty board, lays undercosted beating stick. Opponent drops five 0/1 monsters. No, wait, 1/2, no, wait, 2/3, no, wait 3/4!
