Steve vs Mike FF Challenge Week 2 518-419

(2-0) Mike - 518, (0-2) Me - 419

We are not going the right way here. I got goose eggs from Jacobs, Wells, Grant, Rice. He had Best, Gore and McCoy combining for 100 points alone.
It's okay, the nation will remain strong and hope for better days.

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.

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