Honerable Mention: Sea Eagle

I must have missed this card, but ouch.... There are two different blue creatures which are 1/1 fliers for 1! Then they made this thing only because Wizards makes too many new cards, there I said it. Oh it is also completely inferior to the greatest card in the game - Storm Crow.

30. Crazed Goblin

At least this one is a Goblin unlike a couple others on my list. Why not play Mons's Goblin Raiders or a couple other Goblins which only cost 1 and are vastly superior.

29. Veldrane of Sengir

Homelands black stuff. More expensive than Ihsan's Shade (from the same set) and looks much less cooler. It's a pirate with wolves? 3 mana on top of it to swing for 2 forestwalkyness... garuu?

28. Soul of Magma

You shouldn't be playing a 5 drop which can be pyroclasm'd. Or that can be pyrocla…

30. The Goonies

Why is it ranked here: I never watched this movie as a kid, so it isn't the classic to me that it is to many people. Has three of the biggest directors involved - Richard Donner, Steven Spielberg and Chris Columbus. It's so strange seeing a really young Josh Brolin and Sean Astin. The plot is basically kids treasure hunt which gets wrapped up in a thieves hideout. It moved along fairly quickly, though there was no one moment which stood out.
Interesting: Shit is uttered 20 times. The pirate ship was real and wasn't shown to anyone before hand to which the kids reaction was shit.

29. Starship Troopers

Why is it ranked here: As the earth wages war on an alien species the movie focuses on 3 characters in their actions against the bugs. A jock marine, the girlfriend pilot and the scientist friend. They start off as high s…

40. Goblin War Wagon

This card aspires to be a Hill Giant. Yes, it's terrible enough to be one of the worst artifacts and creatures of all time. Unnecessary cost to untap this. If it cost 1 to untap, maybe it would only be bad. Or if you could pay 2 to untap at anytime, it would be interesting. It doesn't even count as a Goblin, which is the worst sin this card could make.

39. Vindictive Mob

Overpriced, not easily splash-able, get's you 2-1ed. It has no evasion or trample. There are slightly easier ways for Black to get a creature of this relative size. And it's so uncool. A Black mob? Take that Saprolings!

38. Vodalian Soldiers

A staple for some reason, but that doesn't mean it isn't a waste of cardboard. White gets Savannah Lions, Green gets elves. Red gets goblins. Black has various zombies/Child of the Night. Blue …

40. The Living Daylights

Why is it ranked here: My favorite of the two Dalton Bonds. It starts off pretty sweet with three agents parachuting and we don't know which one Bond is. It has some fun action pieces including the pictured sled down on a violin case as well as a runway fight. The climax with the old fat white arms dealer was pretty anticlimactic as the true villain was the Russian General Koskov. I personally like it better than the Lazenby one as well as the later Brosnan and Moore ones.
Interesting: Dalton turned down the part for On Her Majesty's Secret Service 20 years earlier which eventually went to Lazenby. Ironically Dalton only got the part because Brosnan turned it down. Awesome history there.

39. The Expendables

Why is it ranked here: Jason Statham has a really good side arc here. Two scenes that hook me, and then they just abandon the a…

50. Phyrexian Marauder

Finally a X/X creature. Great deal. Except they nerf'd the hell out of it. The inability to block is a major drawback. Paying the upkeep cost essentially every turn is bad no matter how big the thing is. Is a generic 5/5 or 6/6 even worth this?

49. Emberwilde Caliph

This card was a good try. I can see some nice value in this. Those drawbacks are very intense. You literally can't hurt your opponent more than you are getting hurt - for the cost of a card. Not a great deal. If your opponent blindsides you with a larger flier, you've done messed up son. It's a very specific card against another very specific deck. The art is also boring for something so unique.

48. Harbor Guardian

Another card I have like 80 of, so I hate it more than probably others I should. It always starts off so nice too. 3/4 Reach for 4. That might as well be all it is though, …
