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.

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.

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…
