Seldom Known Websites -
I make to-do lists all the time, but writing them down is so 20th century. Instead, use this application so you don't have to carry a piece of paper. You can get alerts via IMs, email and texts.

I've had nasty viruses in my time, but this website was my savior. It can fix your PC if it's acting up. It also has some utilities you can get to help back up and repair.

Forget about installing, signing on and opening AIM, MSN and Yahoo. Instead do all at once with a web browser. You can make a master list of everyone you know and it will access them all automatically.

Become a private eye. A people search engine that will find and list results from different networking sites (ex: Myspace, Bebo, LinkedIn). You can create a Wink profile as well.

If you like watching random videos, then this site is for you. The power of YouTube/College Humor/etc all at once. It lists the most popular videos from different sites. Not good if you are looking for something specific, if you are then use Dabble.

Look at your friends virtual bookshelves, track what books and kinds of books you have so you don't forget if you someday go to a 4 story book store and can't remember if you bought one in particular. You may find someone with similar taste which will lead to finding your next book.

Shopping list or wish list application which lets you keep track of different goods you want, you can save a product from your favorite shopping site and it will be added to your list with a link/picture/price. It will make things easier for people shopping for you during Christmas.

Going on a trip? Want to check out some unique/quirky things? This website is your reference for all the unusual things you wouldn't normally see. You could see the largest fungus in the world (here in Michigan), or you could check out the birthplace of Koolaid.

If you like bargains, then this is for you. It has deals, coupons and free stuff ranging in all different categories. It gets updated often and can save you money, what more could you ask.

Who needs a bartender when you have a website…?!? It can keep track of your friends and drinks. This website lets you search, share and talk about different drinks. The best part though is you can type in what drinks you have available and it will give you drink recipes which can be a giant time saver if you are me.

You only have one homepage, psshh. With this site you can set up a customized home page with instant access to multiple pages at once. Now I can access all my sports teams, fantasy teams and myspace all at once.

A clever and witty blog by a photographer who has some good ideas. I like him because he's nerdy and likes Starwars and Ghostbusters.

Has TV listings and gives you personal recommendations on shows you might want to watch, based on shows or stars that you already enjoy. You can also create channels based on your own interests; type in a keyword, and you'll get videos, news, gossip, and show listings based around it.

A little more than a web-radio music player. You can narrow what kind of music you want to listen to by genre, year, popularity and mood. It creates a linked chart of songs to fit what you selected. It's interesting to see what connections it makes between songs. It seems easy to find music.

Ever want to know what they make Arby's sauce out of, or want to cook your own? This is a neat website with recipes you can make at home that you would normally have to buy. We already made one which was pretty good. Not everything is free though.

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…
