Your favorite cards, Part 2

Posted in Arcana on December 5, 2002

By Wizards of the Coast

Yesterday, we showed the results of one question from our Seventh Edition "Godbook" study, specifically "What is your favorite card?"

Today's Arcana looks at the results of that same question from six other such studies, encompassing the sets from Mercadian Masques through Apocalypse. These studies were taken about two months into each set's existence, and the sample was a several hundred person cross-section of Magic players.

It is interesting to note that large creatures--specifically Legends--dominate the lists.

Tomorrow's Arcana will look at favorite cards from the Odyssey block.
