Happy Thursday MTG peeps,

We know, we know - we indicated in yesterday's post that we were going to have a looky-loo at a standard constructed green - white infect deck featuring the new green aura hotness Rancor.  Well we lied.  We forgot that its Thursday, which means we republish a bunch of recent posts from our sister site MTG Realm on Tumblr.  Magic the Gathering players, n3rds, and gamers should all be happy with today's content so sit down, strap in, and let's go . . .

Is it just me or does anyone else think that Sensei’s Divining Top kinda look just a little like a cinnamon crescent roll … maybe I’m just hungry.

Finally,
Here is a run-down of the Top Ten Selling Magic 2013 M13 Singles In July 2012, as provided by our friends over at MTG Mint Card.

1. Yeva, Nature’s Herald

She’s commands, she’s got flash and she gives all your creatures flash too! She’s even a 4/4! There are plenty of ways to get creative and build around this legendary elf.

2. Master of the Pearl Trident
Being a merfolk lord makes him amazing, and blue has plenty of ways to change land types.

3. Disciple of Bolas
While 4 mana for a 2/1 is a horrible deal, the ability is certainly interesting. This is a great one-of in Commander and can be very dangerous as it refills your hand and life total.

4. Vampire Nocturnus
Play with the top card of your library revealed. As long as the top card of your library is black, Vampire Nocturnus and other Vampire creatures you control get +2/+1 and have flying.

5. Mutilate
All creatures get -1/-1 until end of turn for each Swamp you control.

6. Staff of Nin
At the beginning of your upkeep, draw a card. {T}: Staff of Nin deals 1 damage to target creature or player.

7. Drowned Catacomb
Drowned Catacomb enters the battlefield tapped unless you control an Island or Swamp. {T}: Add {U} or {B} to your mana pool.

8. Odric, Master Tactician
Odric is a great opportunity as a commander. His absurdly worded ability that blows banding out of the water allows him to essentially be unblockable, ensuring you will be dealing commander damage.

9. Thragtusk
The fact that Thragtusk triggers whenever leaving the battlefield – not just dying, makes me love him. The life gain is just gravy! This is just an amazing creature card all around.

10. Captain of the Watch
Vigilance. Other Soldier creatures you control get +1/+1 and have vigilance. When Captain of the Watch enters the battlefield, put three 1/1 white soldier creature tokens onto the battlefield.
