I'm wrong a lot of the time and these cards just prove that
|I'm gonna erase the "defender" part of this card and see if I can finally win.|
I thought he looked good, and I was right. Though I never played him... so I'm still just kinda guessin'. Also note for future things, he also counts as both an artifact and creature for delirium, which is nice in a one drop.
|PSSSHHH, 3/1? more like 3/i won.|
Similar to that of the gargoyle, I rated this pretty low but I ended up playing this anytime I played white. It was very similar in that I used this often times to just kill whatever they threw at me early game, but different from the Thraben Stone Man because if they didn't play anything for a couple of turns I could get some early damage through. Even mid game this was an okay drop because it could still chump for some serious damage to their non-flyers. I'm sorry Sonic the Hedgefox for ever doubting how fast you could truly be.
I played a Theros draft once with like 8 of the 3/1 for 2 cats, and it was wonderful. Ever since that, I always play 3/1 for 2s, even if it's probably not a good idea in my deck.
|AKA the Hooch Haunter|
Fliers r gud, so I rated this pretty well. His upside is nice, but totally unnecessary to run this duder, so let him pour you a glass to celebrate your incoming win.
|In the end, all that was left was a hat.|
This card I never personally played, but anytime it was played in a game I was in, it was huge. I didn't like the 5 cost and I didn't like the sorcery speed but this card really set me back on more than one occasion. They would get rid of my scariest permanent (which was usually a creature) and set me back a turn since I now had to re-draw that permanent. This would always happen late game when I would be top decking or have maybe just one card in hand and having a new card at my draw step could have made a huge difference. I'm sorry random drowning citizen for thinking that you drowning meant you were no longer useful.
I too thought this was a little slow. Well, I was right, it is pretty fuckin' slow, but it's still good. There are times when all this does is make you die one turn later, but other times it's a huge blowout, like putting a Markov Dreadknight with a ton of counters on it on top of their library.
|The exact scenario in the art happened during one of our 2HG games and it was so good.|
I mainboarded this in 2HG, as your green head always should. I don't know what felt better - killing Avacyn the second she hit the field, or when I killed a Flameblade Angle and a Markov Dreadknight for two mana. Both felt sexual.
|This book is just full of cards to draw.|
This + Graf Mole + Ulvenwald Mysteries + all my clue poopers (cloopers) felt a lot like cheating. Late game I was gaining 9, getting 3 1/1s, and searching my deck for a card every turn. It was disgusting.
I am right sometimes as infrequent as that is
|When the guy you sacrifice looks like an asshole, it feels better sacrificing him.|
|Literally 2HG MVP.|
10/10, would play spider literally always. This card was spectacular, and could hold back a ton of damage.
|This is why I keep my zombies in the attic.|
|Never stop boopin' you crazy bastard|
OH LOOK WHO MADE THIS LIST. YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT I WAS RIGHT ABOUT THIS CARD. It didn't matter if I was playing it or my opponent was playing it, it was always huge and a game changer for either. Anytime I had this card I won and anytime it was played against me I probably lost. I tapped down their 1 flyer then swung in with my 4 flyers and on their turn tapped down either that same flyer or something even scarier. Topplegeist still remains best card in set. Thank you, you diligent candle poker, for booping your way through all of Innistrad.
Though we never used him, we did get our butts pounded by him in 2HG. Tapping down two guys every turn was rough, and we got rekt pretty hard.

One more thing I was correct about was delirium. It was so easy to get delirium online that there were times I just assumed I had delirium because I was so used to always having it online. The amount of times I was able to put a land or artifact or enchantment into the graveyard to give me that 4th card type was all the time. It was all the time. Now that most limited formats are going to be draft, you should have an easier time getting delirium because you get to pick and choose each card that you will or won't be playing.
Last thought: There were definitely more cards than these that I was both right and wrong about but these were some of the ones that stood out the most. The most important thing to remember is that if you're using what I say as deck building advice, don't.
