This is a list of what I think are the best cards printed in 2013 the sets are
Please remember that I like cards most people do not and that I like cards people would call junk rares. With that in mind I hope you enjoy the Top 13 of 2013
13. Fleecemane Lion
4/4 Cat with Hexproof and Indestructible for 4 mana is amazing and that is what
Fleecemane Lion will became if you cast it on turn two and use it's Monstrosity
ability on turn five. Plus it will be able to attack on turn five because it
entered the battlefield on turn two and so is not affected by summoning
sickness. This new card from Theros is the thirteenth best in 2013.
12. Savageborn HydraOnce
this hydra is on the battlefield your opponent will only have one choice.
To destroy it. As you can pay 2 mana during your turn at any time and
Savageborn Hydra will get a +1/+1 counter it will become huge quickly.
Definitely worthy of the number 12 spot.
-1/10 unblockable creature that can easily protect it's self is great. You can
make it a powerful attacker or an unbeatable blocker. Plus I you have an
additional blue mana you can make him unblockable and swing for a maximum of 8
damage per turn.
10.A 4/4 for five mana with
Flying, Haste, and protection from White is already great. But, if you have
seven extra mana lying around you can make it a 7/7 and deal a bunch of damage
to your opponent. Unfortunately you cannot remove monstrosity and give him more
9. Biomass MutationBiomass
Mutation may be a surprise to many of you. It is a perfect card for Simic
elf-merfolk decks. You play all your one and two mana creatures while gaining
mana. Then you attack with all of them. Normally you would only deal a tiny bit
of damage. However once you Biomass you will be dealing a large amount of
damage to your opponent and will be able to kill a couple of unsuspecting
creatures while you are at it.
8. Domri RadeHere is the first and only
Planeswalker on our list. He can put creature cards into your hand that can be
cheated onto the battlefield later. Or if you have large enough creatures, kill
an opponents creature. But the best part of all is that you can get an emblem
that gives your creatures Double Strike, Trample. Hexproof, and Haste. Remember
that emblems cannot be destroyed so it’s there to stay.
7. Purphoros, God of the ForgeThe
only God on the list is Purphoros. He works perfectly in Krenko build decks. As
he deals two damage to a player every time a creature enters the battlefield
you will be dealing a bunch of damage when you cast three small goblins per
turn. Pretty soon your devotion to red will be high enough that you can attack
with a 6/5 God.
6. Obzedat, Ghost CouncilObzedat has an unusual
casting cost and name. But if you can get him out on turn 5 he will be all the
better. When he neters you gain 2 life and an opponent looses 2 life. Most
creatures like him will be targeted with Instants and Sorceries but if you
exile him he will not be killed so easily. Then at the beginning of your upkeep
you bring him back dealing 2 damage and gaining 2 life. Plus he gains Haste so
you can attack with him.
5. Aurelia, the WarleaderEver since I saw this card
I knew it was destined to be on the top 13 list. For 6 mana you get a 3/4 flier
with Vigilence and Haste. But that is not even the best part. That is that she
gives you an extra attack step and untaps your creatures if it is the first
time she attacks that turn. Combine this will all the other Boros creatures (like
Tajic) and you will surely win.
tack with him.
4. Nykthos, Shrine to NyxThis may also be surprising
to see so high on the list but I think that it is great. If you can get your
devotion to a color up than Nykthos can produce vast amounts of mana each turn.
I especially like it because it combos with X mana so well.If you play it with
Biomass Mutation your creatures could get unbelievably large.
3. Kalonian HydraKalonian Hydra is just like
Vorel except that he doubles the counters on every creature not just one. This
makes him unbelievably powerful. Just think. If you had a 1/1 creature in only
five turns it would be a 32/32 creature. If it was a 4/4 in 5 turnes it would
be a 128/128 creature. What if you paired it with Aurelia. Well in 5 turns a
1/1 creature would be a 1024/1024. Of course your opponent wouldn’t last 2
turns let alone 5.
2. Voice of ResurgenceJust like last year a
Selesnya card made the number 2 slot. Voice of Resurgence is such a great card
because it stops so many deck types. If every time you cast a spell during an
opponents turn they got a huge creature would cast a bunch of spells. Plus the
tokens get bigger for each one you get. And when it dies you get one anyway.
Also it is only 2 mana so it stops decks right from the beginning.
1. Archangel of ThuneFinally the best card of
2013. I had a tough time deciding between Archangel of Thune and Voice of
Resurgence but picked The Archangel because it can combo with many things. First
is the Archangel of Thune and Spike Feeder combo which gives you an infinite
amount of mana and an infinitely large creature. Then There is the Archangel of
Thune, Horizon Chimera, Fathom Mage combo which does the same thing except it
draws your library for you. Archangel of Thune is definitely worth the Number
one spot for the best cards of the year 2013.
Have a great 2014 and be looking out for top 14 of 2014 coming out in one year.
