    This post is for those of you that have ever looked at a card a wondered what the people were smokin that made it a rare.

    Mine are:
    Wyluli Wolf
    1G
    T: target creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn
    1/1

    Mon's Goblins Raiders (Portal Edition)
    R
    1/1

    Goblin Hero was a rare in starter too.

    But if you've ever noticed, all the really bad cards are rare...
  3. Hetemti The Wide-Awake Nightmare

    I think the reason for the wolf is probably because it's an anagram for Garfield's wife's name, Lily Wu.

    Goblin Raiders and Goblin Hero are rares in Starter because they are availiable only in Guru packs. Starter Boosters don't have them.

    Pygmy Allosaurus
    Heart Wolf
    Mindbender Spores
    Stampede
    Yavimaya Gnats

    ...by the way, has anyone found a decent use for Keldon Battlewagon yet?
  5. Mr_Pestilence Wumpus

    Keldon Battlewagon + Angel's Trumpet.

    Sure all you need is a green deck full of big creatures, the battlewagon, and a couple of vitialize. Oh course I don't care if this is tournement legal or not...

    Vitalize + Battlewagon = Better Berserk. Tell me that's not good. :) Or try using Seeker of Skybreak, Turnabout, and other similar cards for a really hard hit. The current record at our school is 24 thousand some-odd damage in one attack with the Wagon.

    What's wrong with Yavamia Ants? That's an awsome card for green!
  9. Elrond Veteran CPA Lurker

    Hawaiian mage: he said Yavimaya Gnats, not Yavimaya Ants, which is a really cool card IMHO.
  10. Cateran Emperor Passed On

    How did no one say this yet? PALE MOON. One of my least favorite cards ever, if not the worst. Blech. This might be okay as a common and if it were a cantrip and...
  11. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    My favorite were the islands that took rare slots...
  12. Apollo Bird Boy

    Battlewagon and Saproling Burst=21 damage and game.

    You could make a deck around that, probly with some blue unblockable spells, counters, and search. I bet it'd win it's share of games.
  13. nodnarb24 Supreme Overlord/The Rat King

    Battlewagon and Morphling. Pump the morph up, tap him, untap him, tap him...

    I have never understood why Elvish Archer is rare.


    Hawaiian Mage: Actually, yes, you are right, all rare cards suck, especially that stupid Black Lotus.... who would ever make a deck using that...... Yesterday I sold ten of the to some guy for $10 each. He was sooooooooooo stupid!

    Bad rares:
    Pale Moon (Yes, it's so bad that it has to be said again!)
    Sorrow's Path
    Security Detail
    Cornered Market
    Shivan Gorge

    Rares that aren't so great but are still cool:
    Psychic Vortex
    Dominating Licid
    Brand (I like some of these Gilded Drake and Thieves' Auction decks)
    Thieves' Auction
    the new Leeches from Invasion

    Oh, and by the way: Heart Wolf isn't rare. It's from Homelands, whose packs had no rare slot. It's an uncommon, and it doesn't completely suck.
  16. nodnarb24 Supreme Overlord/The Rat King

    I love shivan gorge. It has saved my red deck against blue all the time.
  17. Gizmo Composite: 1860

    Rishadan Port

    If tt were uncommon it would 50% the problem it is now.
  18. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    Gizmo:

    Ummmmm.......









    WHAT????????????


    No, seriously, what??


    ?????????????????
  19. ErinPuff Token Female

    Heart Wolf's uncommon? That makes much more sense.. but I swear M:IE told me it was rare.. damn program! *kicks computer*
  20. Apollo Bird Boy

    All of Invasion! (well, almost)
