Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Your Favorite Cards Edition

by

This last week at the store, one of our periodic unexpected treasures walked in the door: An original, sealed-in-plastic box of Magic: The Gathering Revised Edition booster packs from 1994.  According to Henchman Chris (his actual job description), the response of the seller to hearing his offer was a moment of silent shock, and the questions about whether to break it up to sell as individual packs or maintain its two-decade-old unbroken seals.  Most amazingly, since this dates back to the point where Otter Disaster and I actually (poorly) played MTG, I actually had a knowledge enough to join in the Magic discussion for the first time in a very long time.  My favorite card of the set, since I enjoyed playing red/white, was the mighty Serra Angel, a card whose illustration was not only awesome, but bore a slight resemblance to Gillian Anderson, who was one of my strongest woman-crushes of the day.  In fact, the only deck of cards I still own contains four of the Revised edition Serras, which begs today’s perhaps-nerdier-than-usual query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) remembers being able to buy Beta edition MTG packs in the stores (though, admittedly, at a ridiculous price), asking: What’s your favorite single card from any collectible card game?
