I'll jump to the conclusion really quick, and then explain myself: What, in your opinion, be it humble or not, are the best 10 common cards ever printed in the history of the game?
I've recently been thinking about the game, and realized that I couldn't find one standard list by which all commons, uncommons, and rares were ranked. I figured that it might be time to at least get some opinions on what you thought, as a MtGer, were the best commons ever printed.
I'm keeping the number small, but feel free to go past ten if you'd like.

It mostly consists of a napalm filled trench around my house and a stack of 1994 pornography in my basement.

As much as I'm against the OTT view that this card is going to solo tournaments, cure cancer and make Susan Boyle attractive I'm not really a fan of the opposing camp who think it slaughters puppies and sired Justin Bieber.

i think this card is Freakin' awesome just imagine zoo with this even on the draw u flex "Nutz" any mana drawing the extra card u can pitch and turning up the gas on tempo and it still taps for mana easily a 3 of most likely a 4 of
Sure, stuff like Snapping Drake and Goblin Piker are for limited. But Null isn't even playable against a 5 year old whose hand consists of a 6 of Clubs, Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Chimney Imp, and a very large cumquat.
Yes I think it is one of the best green creatures ever. The only downside is that it can't be enchanted by Rancor, one of the best green cards of all time. Rancor is clearly better.
Also, I think it is stupid to rank Sinkhole higher than Hymn to Tourach on the list of greatest commons of all time. Hymn is definately more unfair thus better. So are Strip Mine and Wasteland (though that are no commons). If I make a list of best commons I would probably put that one on top (but it's safe to say that Dark Ritual equally desreves that spot!!!)They ruined tournaments when they were legal and the Hymn (plus Mind Twist) are the icons of discard. It is the most unfair common.
1. Hymn to Tourach
2. Dark Ritual
3. Lightning Bolt
4. Wild Mongrel
10. Kird Ape
I love top 10s!!!!!!!
12. Lotus Petal
14. Crop Rotation
17. Sakura-Tribe Elder
18. Mana Leak
19. Chain Lightning
20. Seal of Cleansing
Sinkhole, Frantic Search and the others mentioned before are no five stars and so they're not listed here.
Sinkhole will get four. As good as it is, it is no Strip Mine, no Wasteland and no Rishadan port. It is very good though.:teach:
Same for Frantic. It can be brutal in multiples and it is good if you have broken land to untap, but there are way better card drawers for less mana (see Brainstorm/ Recall/ Timetwister/Gush, etc) while it is also not the best untapper (the untap champion is ofcourse Mind over Matter). Unrestrict Frantic and people would still use four Brainstorms and whatnot.:teach: those damned smilies of yourse
