Honorable mention: Count Chocula

The circle is now complete, now that I have them all, my search is over and I can fulfill my dream of eating sugar for breakfast.

10: Lothos (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Photobucket

Photobucket

Never watched the show since the show didn't have Luke Perry. I need my Dillon fix.

9. 30 Days of Night Vampires

Photobucket

This guy is the freakiest one. Even scarier than Josh Hartnett's acting(gasp).

Photobucket

She wants a kiss.

8. Peter Leow (Vampire Kiss)

Photobucket

Photobucket

Oh Nicolas Cage. What a great actor. What great sarcasm. But seriously this guy is screwed up.

7. Video Game Dracula (Castlevania)

Photobucket

All these games were hard and this version looks kinda silly, but still a bad ass.

Photobucket

Get em Simon Belmont!

6. Wesley Snipes (Blade)

Photobucket

Eddie and I were the blackest people in town. See, this is long before Wesley Snipes.

Photobucket

Van Wilder is a vampire hunter. Hmm.

5. Lestat (Interview with a Vampire)

Photobucket

Save me Tom Cruise!

Photobucket

Tom your not fooling anyone, just come out of the closet. Well. I mean, you're not... you're not like as good as Leonardo di Caprio, but you're okay, I guess.

4. Gary Oldman (Bram Stoker's Dracula)

Photobucket

"I'm not, like, that smart." - Paris Hilton

Photobucket

"Don't hate yourself in the morning. Sleep till noon."

3. Selene (Underworld)

Photobucket

Kate Beckinsale goes from Vampire Hunter in Van Helsing to Vampire in Underworld. That is what you call a traitor.

Photobucket

"Lucian is dead. According to who?" "Why are you helping me? I'm not, I'm helping me."

2. Mr. Barlow (Salem's Lot)

Photobucket

Photobucket

Not as scary as the kids tapping on the window. But this thing just comes out of nowhere to scare the bejeebus out of you.

1. The brides of Dracula (Van Helsing)

Photobucket

The hos of Transylvania. They all get knocked up pretty good. There are like 200 some little vampires running around.

Photobucket

Dracula is a pimp. He's got 3 submissive wives who go hunting leaving me, I mean him to stay on the couch.

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…

80. Phyrexian Dreadnought

Illusionary Mask combo aside, a 12/12 Trample for one is certainly an interesting idea. At some point in the game you will have some 1/1s or even 2/2s that you don't need, maybe something get's Pacifism'd. Then you have a real card capable of becoming the largest threat on the board that will end the game in two turns unless dealt with. It does have quite the possibility of ruining your entire game plan if it gets Doom Blade'd or something. There are other ways to abuse it - Torpor Orb, Pandemonium, Fling.

79. Kor Duelist

Requiring equipment for it to be useful is a drawback, but for one mana you get the possibility of a double striking monster. Even if you could give it +2/+0 or heck Loxodon Warhammer then you get a fantastic deal for a single mana. Put it in a deck with the Swords and just go to town. A turn two Bonesplitter will hit for six.

Repeated Bitterblossom kill. It is…
