Ranking the Marvel Movies

Same Idea as the Pixar ones - we each ranked the ones we have watched. The average gets the higher score.
29 of them to this count - not counting the terrible Captain America and Fantastic 4 movies that came out in the 90s.

29.The Punisher (The Original)

The only one none of us have watched. My Dolph marathon won't be complete without it.

28. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2)

To be fair there was only one rank with a low score. Trailer looked fairly interesting though.

Earlier movie doesn't really fit what Marvel does now. I always liked the beginning though.

26. Punisher War Zone

You can tell when a vampire series has run out of ideas when they bring in Dracula and or Ryan Reynolds.

Not sure how I ranked this the highest as I'm equally disappointed as most people with this.

At times my favorite Super Hero movie. Though the Spider Man no more storyline can get draining on re-watches.

This movie gets panned quite a bit and rightfully so. But Downey is all we need to be entertained.

  1. Yes! X2 Makes the top of the list. Truly awesome movie. I was surprised movies like Elektra made the list, but then I saw that you ranked all the movies you saw. Quite an innovative list. Most of us do only Top 10 lists!

    Still can't figure out if The Amazing Spiderman was a remake or reboot. The story seems exactly similar to Raim's first movie! And I absolutely agree with The avengers and Iron Man. total fun movies. I would have put Wolverine at the bottom though. Horrible stuff!

    Great list, bro. Looking forward to more such awesomeness!

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…
