Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
There is a rather interesting discussion going down on Reddit's MagicTCG. Specifically, NinjaFerret4-5 asked 'What's the Best Two Drop of All Time?' which spurred a discussion with over 300 replys in just under 18 hours.
Here was a description and qualifier -
Famous two drops have long defined Magic; everything from [[Wild Mongrel]] to [[Arcbound Ravager]] to [[Meddling Mage]]. However, a general consensus has formed over the 4 best ones. I am talking about Snapcaster Mage, Stoneforge Mystic, Tarmogoyf, and Dark Confidant, with the red version of the cycle sometimes [[Young Pyromancer]]. However, what does Reddit think is the best of the 4(5)? Does Reddit think Young Pyromancer deserves a spot in the Two Drop Hall of Fame?
EDIT: I meant two drop creatures. Yes, we all know that "creatures suck" but comparing Tarmogoyf to a Time Walk is like comparing a Fiat to a Lamborghini. One costs much less, but you will almost always want the other and the other is considered much more powerful.
Yeah - we were young and rather uninformed. For giggles, we did the very same sort on Gatherer for 2 CMC critters (apparently there is about 1,391 of 'em) sorted to community rating - here is the absolute rubbish we got back -
