Happy Friday MTG peeps,

The latest Magic the Gathering set, Innistrad, has been now with us for more than a month now, which means it may now be a good time to take a look at what players think. Specificallly, we want to look on the Wizards of the Coast MTG card database, Gatherer, to look at the top-rated cards of Innistrad. Here are the top 9 cards as rated by the players along with a select comment from the participants.

I pulled this and a Skaab Ruinator at the prerelease. Much beatdown ensued. But the most fun I had with this card was fighting against a werewolf deck and using this to copy my Creepy Doll twice. That was the highlight of the night, honestly...I kept giggling like a lunatic. And then my opponent asked me to stop, because he'd just watched the Doctor Who episode "Night Terrors" not too long ago... - Posted By: The_Stray
