If you ever consider collecting MTG just check how easy it can be at http://www.collecty.net
In almost every standard format, there ends up being the “defining” cards of the format; the defining cards are basically the one that you have to be able to beat if you want to have a competitive deck. Usually, the defining cards are fairly obvious and have an easy-to-see impact on the tournament scene; other times, however, the cards are not so obvious and you have to look a little bit deeper to figure out the reasons why a certain deck is consistently winning. For instance, the Delver deck from not too long ago was very powerful, but not particularly because of the human/insect creature, Delver was very powerful because of Ponder, and thus Ponder was the defining card in this case. So for today, we’re going to take a look at eight of the top cards in standard, in no particular order.
