My Top 20 Journey Into Nyx Cards

I am a little late on this set. The summer is here and we've already had Conspiracy pass us with M15 on the horizon.  I did make a M14 list, so I will try to get that out at least before the next set.
I get the two sets Journey Into Nyx and Born of the Gods mixed up. I can never remember which is which. Theros was an easy name to remember, but these just seem interchangeable. I managed to make BotG into a top 40 card thing which just seems completely unreasonable now. This is a better set than last time, I think that can be universally agreed on. It's probably not as powerful as Theros, but it's at least a discussion.

This set has enough junk in it that it was hard to make a bottom 5 list. I did one, but there were some close contenders for cream of the crap.The bottom 5 of my bottom 10:

Mortal Obstinacy - A small stat boost for a card is not worth it, there are plenty of enchatments though.

Thassa's Devourer - 5 mana for a boring 2/6 is worthless without Phenax.

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.

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…
