20 in 10

Since this is a Magic 2010 Preview week, we wanted in on the fun here in Arcana. Unfortunately, we don't have a preview card, so we had lean on the "Magic 2010" side.

So! Did you know that the numeral "20" appears on precisely 10 cards in Magic? Betcha didn't! Now ... can you name them?

Before you start, be warned that we're talking only about the numeral "20". If it's spelled out as "twenty," it doesn't count.

The rest of this Arcana will be a list of the cards in question, followed, of course, by Core Set Survivor. Click here to see the categories of "20" cards.

Gain 20 Life

Heroes Remembered
Illusions of Grandeur

Life Total Becomes 20

Blessed Wind
Lich's Mirror

20 Power

Dark Depths

Goblin Bomb

Random 20


Core Set Survivor!

There are exactly sixteen cards that have been in every core set from Alpha to Tenth Edition. When Magic 2010 comes out, only eight cards will have been in every core set. Over the weeks before the Magic 2010 prerelease, we'll be counting them down in this special Arcana sub-feature, giving you an "IN" or "OUT" on one card a day. Step forward, Grizzly Bears.

Reveal Grizzly Bears' fate!

Air Elemental
Bog Wraith
Drudge Skeletons—IN
Giant Growth—IN
Giant Spider
Goblin King—OUT
Grizzly Bears
Howling Mine
Orcish Artillery
