Lots of terrible weenies, fliers and black creatures in these next 10.

20. Rust Elemental

Not awful if you have enough artifacts to back it up(and Skullclamp), but most decks wouldn't be able to support this card without hurting themselves more than their opponent. It probably won't live if this is a card you are relying on.

19. Infernal Denizen

The daddy of all big black creatures. Play Lord of Tresserhorn to try and sacrifice everything. I'd say the mana cost is too much except you really need tons of swamps to make this playable. Belongs in a weenie deck where you can keep your deck pumping for a few turns while you turn the tide. Not exactly splashable. Demonic Hordes get lumped in with this thing, but are much better.

18. Cyclopean Mummy

A card I despise more than most due to how many times I've had to play with it on the computer. How does white get Savanna Lion and black gets a nerfed version which is more expensive. Poor black. Thanks for making Yixlid jailer.

17. Giant Slug

Overcosted plain weenie. What are you equipping this thing with that you want to pay 5 mana and attack with him for. Just play an unblockable creature, you can get one of those out prior to turn 5.

16. Bloodcurdler

This thing is a rare? What am I missing? The second ability works against the first one. Won't even help that long with living dead decks. Just pointless. Play Skulking Ghost and forget this.

15. Andradite Leech

Another rare which really does more harm than good. There are so many pumpable black creatures that don't have this harsh drawback. Play the infinitely better Nantuko Shade.

14. Chimney Imp

These last 4 are 5 mana turds. Even if the ability took place upon entering the battlefield it should only cost 3. It's not a terrible ability, it just won't work until turn 6 at minimum while your opponent plays a Shivan Dragon.

12. Pulsating Illusion

A 4/5 flier for 5? How can I lose? How about discarding a card everytime you want to use it. Blargg. The art sucks on top of it. Splash it with a card which benefits from no cards in hand. Play multiple Howling Mines and Consecrated Sphinxs to ensure you have plenty of cards.

13. Horizon Seed

Not sure what this picture and card name are implying. A 5 mana Savanna Lions which requires additional cards to regenerate is the jokiest of jokes. This is just unreal, 5 mana? Was 4 too broken? Was 3 too broken? It has no evasion, I don't care if it has regenerating. So does Drudge Skeleton. Kokusho, the Evening Star costs one more mana.

11. Soulgorger Orgg

The mother of all drawbacks. I don't care if it's a 5/5 for 6 or if there is a stalemate going. This is only playable when you have sub 5 life as it is. Therefore it's a dead card, or a dead you.
