I ask the world's greatest questions, I get dumb answers...

What if you could have any ten questions answered? Which ten would you ask?

I picked my top ten questions and let the all knowing MAGIC 8 BALL answer them.

I'm not asking anything spiritual here, there a god, soul, heaven, elvis...

10. Did OJ do it?
Well, we're off to a bang up job aren't we 8-Ball? I think even Judge Ito knew the answer to this one, but you couldn't.

9. Was 9-11 a conspiracy by the government?
Why did I even bother with this? Stupid 8-Ball! It's not going to tell me anything that even George Jr. couldn't tell me.

8. Was the JFK assassination a cover up?
Now we are on to something. So there was some foul play on that grassy knoll and I don't mean Lee Harvey Oswald. Some people need to be put in jail now. Go eighty go!

7. Will humans cure all disease and cancer?
Well we really need to jump off that cancer cure band-wagon don't we. That money could be better spent else where I suppose. Like into the stock wait...that's a guaranteed failure too.

6. Do vampires/zombies/werewolves/loch ness monster/bigfoot exist?
While kind of sad, I guess it's all for the better. Now we can lay off Transylvania, cemeteries, London, Loch Ness, and Canada once and for all.

5. Will humanity wipe itself out through pollution or war?
Oh bloody hell. Well now I shall make it my life's work to heal the environment and stop war. So...I would have to become a hippie-Greenpeace member, fuck that son.

4. Can you be brought back to life? (through freezing or miracles)
I know where the rest of my money is the freezing chamber so when I die, my body can be put on ice. Looks like I'll be teaching future generations about the slam dunk contest, or be tortured endlessly explaining how taxes work, why Alex Rodriguez took steroids or how we elected Bush with minority number of votes.

3. Did a meteor wipe out the dinosaurs?
Now we can stop that evolution bull-crap once and for all. And now we can focus on the real issue, how are we going to get Bruce Willis into space with that annoying Ben Affleck.

2. Is time travel possible?
Well with all of my dreams of a flying delorean down the tubes, I am forced to live my life the way it was intended...balls to the walls.

1. Do Aliens Exist?
Uh oh. First they are going to screw our women, then run back to their planet while raising their alien child on earth from a glass box. Impossible you say?

Well then I give you exhibit A:

20. Vexing Devil

Giving an opponent a choice is never a good idea. However I really feel like it's win win here in the aggressive deck. A 4/3 for one will almost always be worth a card. So the real question is - is it worth a card to deal 4 damage for a red? It's not quite Flame Slash good in a control deck, or as great top deck as Thunderous Wrath but better than Thunderbolt or Lava Axe.

19. Scute Mob

Not a true one drop. But by turn six hopefully you are going get a hydra-like insect that will quickly get insanely huge if not dealt with. My biggest issue is that it doesn't have trample. It's still a great costed creature that can do some work if unchecked. There are lots of ways to give it Trample in Green not named Rancor.

18. Dragonmaster Outcast

And yet another non-true one drop. If you can stay…

My Top 100 One Drop (CC) Creatures (100-81)

One drops are the least important thing in any draft or sealed pool. You shouldn't play them pretty much ever. They typically do little for you, don't fit random cards, or just suck. And why should they, you aren't expected to win the game by turn 1(not counting you Legacy). In constructed, it's a whole different ball game. You have these cheap cards that actually interact with other cards in your deck. Not only that - your selection is a lot wider and if you look deep enough, you can find cards that can really put the pressure on.

The number 100 just kind of worked out. There are approximately 600 one costed creatures, and I honestly only checked out about 400 of them - top half and the very bottom(maybe I trust The Gatherer too much, but I'm always open to suggestions!). I found 95 that I really liked just naturally. The other 5 are included as my bottom 5, but 100 of course just sounded better.
I could have forced myself to get 5 more, but there are essentially…

40. Gnat Miser

Since it doesn't really affect the battlefield, it's hard to rank it higher. But it has a great little ability on turn one(especially on the play) and it works well in multiples. 

39. Skyshroud Elite

It's an elvish Kird Ape! It doesn't have the pesky Mountain requirement and any decent deck is going to have a non basic land. If by rare chance your opponent is on the draw and waits to play their special lands, you are left with a pitiful 1/1. And it's ceiling is just a 2/3 so it's good, but not great.

38. Sakura-Tribe Scout/Skyshroud Ranger

I think doing it as an instant and then casting something large with flash would work, so the Scout might be strictly better than the ranger. Early game these things do work. Late game they do virtually nothing. 

37. Slumbering Dragon

I think you need to abuse this to make it really…
