Once again there are actually only 8 ‘pure’ black 1-drop flyers in the history of magic.

  •  Will-o’-the-Wisp
  • Putrid Imp
  • Circling Vultures
  • Vampire Bats
  • Nightshade Stinger
  • Pit Imp
  • Molting Harpy
  • Phyrexian Battleflies

The two other 1-drop flyers that come up if you do a gatherer search either require hybrid mana or other colors as part of there ability activation:

  • Oona’s Gatewarden
  • Dreadwing

As for 1-drop ground troops, what a nice list this is:

  • Disciple of the Vault
  • Fume Spitter
  • Typhoid Rats
  • Diregraf Ghoul
  • Festering Goblin
  • Kederekt Parasite

Top 8 – Red 1-Drop Flyers

January 18, 2012 1 comment

Ok. This list should be interesting. Oh, none you say, not one red 1-drop flyer in Magic.

The bottom line is that red does not have any 1-drop that hit the battlefield with flying. You can activate certain cards once they are in play, to give them flying. But they don’t come into play in their ‘vanilla’ state with flying. There are some red 1-drop creatres which have abilities that give them flying, these are:

  • Goblin Balloon Brigade
  • Roc Hatchling
  • Raka Disciple

While turning our atention to straight red 1-drops there are a number of high quality candidates. making a top 8 for these a breeze:

  • Dragonmaster Outcast
  • Goblin Welder
  • Goblin Lackey
  • Grim Lavamancer
  • Flamekin Harbinger
  • Goblin Guide
  • Stromkirk Noble
  • Kird Ape

Top 8 – Green 1-Drop Flyers

January 17, 2012 Leave a comment

Following on with the series of posts on 1-drop flyers, once again we will be struggling to find 8 flyers in green, regardless of quality. I count a mere four:

  • Birds of Paradise
  • Xantid Swarm
  • Scryb Sprites
  • Uktabi Drake

There are also a number of 1-drops in green which have reach:

  • Ezuri’s Archers
  • Traproot Kami
  • Wall of Vines
  • Tree Monkey

And plenty of 1-drop quality green weenies without  flying or reach that you could create a solid top 8 with:

  • Noble Hierarch
  • Wild Nacatl
  • Joraga Warcaller
  • Basking Rootwalla
  • Heritage Druid
  • Arbor Elf
  • Fyndhorn Elves
  • Quirion Ranger
