What are the 3 cards in Duels you think are most fun?

These can be cards that are so powerful you run in basically every deck with that color, or cards that you have just fun building around.

You can list more than 3 if you can't narrow down, of course. I just picked 3 as a baseline.

Conversely, shout outs to the worst cards are welcome too.

I'm all about dem 4 mana do nothing enchantments, so my 3 most fun cards are Valor in Akros, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Anointed Procession. I've built counteless decks around those cards. Not even close to the most powerful, but I've had hours and hours of fun playing with them.

3 cards that are fun in that they're powerful and go into a wide variety of decks for me would probably be Tireless Tracker, Zendikar Gideon, and Smuggler's Copter. Although the Copter is so powerful it's become unfun for me, and I limit myself on what decks I'll run it in now...

Disciple of the Ring gets my vote for least fun card ever. It’s awful to play both with (so much pausing the timer) and against

Ogre Battledriver was my favourite I think

Bomat Courier is #1

Liliana, the Last Hope is loads of fun. It's the only card that I can actually picture my opponent squirming in his seat when I play it.

No ****, right.

Nissa, Vastwood Seer - Favourite card in all of Duels. Love the design, love Nissa as a character, good power level, in my favourite colour - what's not to love?

Grapple with the Past - Hits landdrops early and bombs late; and enables Delirium at a reasonable rate. Really enjoy playing and building with the card.

Liliana, the Last Hope - Kind of a distant third, but the card is just absurdly powerful and fits into almost any black deck; and given how often I play her she just felt fitting for third place.

If this were a top 10, my contenders for the 4-10 spots would probably be (in no particular order) Nahiri, the Harbinger, Torrential Gearhulk, Commit // Memory, Cryptbreaker, Tireless Tracker, Bruna, the Fading Light and Harnessed Lightning.

And since we're on topic for most hated card: Mwonvuli Acid-Moss. Good riddance.

Lotta good mentions - Drake Haven, Last Hope Lilliana, and Cast Out in particular are ones I really enjoy.

I know Disciple is Boss Bitch in decks that can feed her, but I almost never play with her because it gets tedious with activations... def one of the least fun cards to play against.

Ironically, nothing upsets an opponent more than a resolved Disciple of the Ring with an extra 2-3 mana.

Good luck ever removing her, sucker. I gotta imagine they squirm to death when it resolves.

^true story

Omg, Barney, I just looked up Ogre Battledriver. I've been playing a GR treason sac Hazoret's Favor deck the last couple days - I had no idea they made a better version of the effect on a 3/3 butt in the past! If I had been collecting paper cards then I totally would have sought out that card :party:

@Barney - if I could play that card in Duels with Sram's Expertise, I would be a happy man. :drool:

@Vert - I still have your UB Drake Haven control deck in my Duels list box. I appropriately named it VERT TROLL. I'm almost certain I've never had an opponent stay live till facing lethal - too frustrating to face. It's one of my go-tos whenever I get the discard related daily challenge.

Drake Haven's such a fun card to play with. I still can't believe how much some people were dogging on it in the spoiler season thread back in the day.

Yeah, it's way more powerful than it appears. In a deck like Grixis Reanimator, it turns Haunted Dead into the most stupid powerful turn 4 play there is. Even assuming you don't draw any Prized Alamagam's it's dropping 7 points of power at EOT, and 5 of that is flying.

The fact it dropped with a number of good cycle cards ups its value, but it takes over games so quickly.

A disciple with mana open is just GG. I did recently beat it but it was because I just had so much removal that he burned through his GY. But normally I say GG and concede. People always quit against my disciple. They never stop trying against liliana though. Hell they even think you'll be bold and give them 1 more turn so you can take her to 8 before popping off.

Don't be ashamed that you can't get it to 8 like sixty can. 7 is still quite admirable.

Pretty sure Sixty ult's at 7, too. He's saying opponents don't quit, hoping he'd be dumb enough to wait until 8.

That beauty was one of the only non dragons in my dotp 2013 jund deck.
Much fun and instantly a target for removal.
