Creatures That Cost Zero Mana
Over the weekend I was pondering a deck list in Baxter’s book, Mastering Magic Cards. The deck in question, The Quagmire, uses Manabarbs to inflict damage when land is tapped and also uses low cost creature spells, some of which generate mana, to avoid doing too much damage to yourself. Obviously, since the book was written, there are now cards which can deflect or even ‘alter’ the damage you get from your own Manabarbs (Tamanoa for example).
However, one area that I explored, while I was thinking about improvements to the deck to lessen the effect of the Manabarbs on your own life total, was creatures that cost 0 to cast.
Here is what you get when you search The Gatherer (note, you need to use a mana cost of zero in the search and not just the CMC of zero to filter out Tokens) – Click Here.
