Blog the Magic Gathering

A poor man's blog for Magic the Gathering (MtG), Wizards of the Coast (WoTC), deck construction, cards, combos, game play, MtG podcasts, etc.

What is "Magic: the Gathering"? Magic is a collectible fantasy-themed playing card game kinda combining Uno, War, Chess, and art dealing: match colors, draw 4, high card beat low card, different cards attack in different ways while you ogle hot chicks and dragons drawn by your favorite artists on cards you can sometimes sell for big money.
It's Pokimon for grown ups. Srsly, get your Pokimon player a Magic deck and they'll instantly sprout pubes and consider a career as a mathmatician.

Worst Magic Card Ever: Sorrow's Path

How about Spitemare and Swans with provoke?

4 Sorrow's Path

4 Boros Signet 1+tap:rw (our mana curve is high)
4 Mogg Maniac 1r Creature - Goblin Whenever Mogg Maniac is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to target opponent. 1/1 (Tap Sorrow's path in response to damage assigned to him and get the most from his death)
3 Swans of Bryn Argol 2 w/u w/u Creature - Bird Spirit Flying If a source would deal damage to Swans of Bryn Argoll, prevent that damage. The source's controller draws cards equal to the damage prevented this way. 4/3
2 Spitemare 2 r/w r/w Creature - Elemental Whenever Spitemare is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to target creature or player. 3/3
2 Stuffy Doll 5 Artifact Creature - Construct As Stuffy Doll comes into play, choose a player. Stuffy Doll is indestructible. Whenever Stuffy Doll is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to the chosen player. Tap: Stuffy Doll deals 1 damage to itself. 0/1
