The Top Ten

Black Lotus
Yep and the most expensive card in ALPHA it's worth up to 10,000 dollars!

2Mycosynth Lattice
Wow. When I first saw this card I squeeled with joy. Everything is an artifact? That is insane. You can suddenly double loyalty on planeswalkers without using abilities. Annul becomes a counter for 1 mana. And mana color doesn't even matter! How great is that? The combo possibilities are just about endless with it, this card is truely overpowered as it gets.

3Emrakul, the Aeons Torn
This is the big dog among the legendary Eldrazi. Extra turn when you cast it and protection from colored spells and annihilator 6? Not good enough, better also make it a 15/15 flyer that can't be countered. I mean, this is almost a spell that says "you win"
Very good card overall. You can use Quicksilver Amulet to get it out early and win.
Put this out with Hedron matrix. Give it a turn. Game over.

This card deserves a spot high on this list simply for this text "protection from everything"
True that. Basically it's saying "Put this in a sliver deck and win"
He's a little under on this list because I mean... YOU can't TOUCH HIM!
[Newest]This is the best card ever

5Time Walk
An extra turn with2 mana.


6Ancestral Recall

7Mox Emerald

8Eight and a Half Tails
In EDH, this is one of the kings among commanders. It's so anti control it is control.

9Rhys the Redeemed
The king of all decks token. This is easily one of the best EDH commanders you can run. It gets out staggeringly fast and has staggeringly good consistency. Not to mention it has a CMC of 1 for 2 colors. This card is on another level altogether.

10Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

The Contenders

Alright wheres that Darksteel Colossus.


12Scion of the Ur-Dragon
This card is a staple in a 5 color EDH deck. This is because it is the most consistent commander you can have. Not only that, but it has an insanely good ability which can be used to kill things, protect it, or all sorts of other things. All in all, it's a really excellent card

13Dross Scorpion
4 for a 3/1 in the list of top cards? That's not why it's here. This card is by far the most effective combo engine I can imagine. As a creature, it's terrible sure. But if you're looking to really do something with that mycosynth lattice, you can play this guy.

1 blue mana to draw three and put two back. This is excellent for when you don't need exactly what's in your hand, but want to draw a lot of cards. It is really powerful just by itself. Especially for a common.
The staple of blue decks. Played everywhere while legal.

15Jace, The Mind Sculptor
Ok. 4 abilities. I'm in. Get rid of the opponents good stuff. Card filtering at a three card+hand level. Bouncing. 7 turn clock after ultimate... easily one of the best cards.

Mind Sculpt :P

16Maelstrom Nexus
Another one of those great cards that's just really overpowered by itself, let's you cascade whatever you want even if it's something insanely big in CMC

17Platinum Angel

18Ajani Vengeant

Library search and deposit into graveyard for an easy huge powerhouse on potentially turn 1? Yes please



22Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

23Doorway To Nothingness.

Fun and brutal. Expectantly kill an opponent by dumping most of your life into an unblocked creature, or go down spectacularly when they counter it. Even better in EDH when you can play it on someone else's General who is attacking another opponent.

25Chandra Ablaze

26Angel of Hope

27Ajani Caller of the Pride

28Sorin Markov

Wish it was commander legal lol

30Ashnod's Coupon
Get me some toilet water from Lithuania. No? That's a shame...

31Force of Will

32Demonic Tutor

33Tolarian Academy

34Mana Drain
