Mtg: The Top 10 Artifacts of All Time!
These colorless bombs will define the game, and when used together, will end the game before it even gets started!
when asked what the best artifact cards in the game are, a newer player may respond with something like “Darksteel Colossus“. While this may be one of the most eye catching cards in the casual scene, it is not the flashy artifacts that are the best. In fact, the colossus may not even make the top 50! This article recalls the most powerful, broken, banned and game making artifacts in the game, many of whom work behind the scenes!
#10 – Sensei’s Divining Top – Uncommon / Mythic
The best card to come out of the Kamigawa block, Sensei’s Divining top was banned in standard soon after it was printed. It is currently restricted. With the ability to dictate what cards you draw and the ability to fetch them early, the top was quite a pull, even if it was an uncommon (or came in a starter deck!).
#9 – Skullclamp- Uncommon / Mythic
Much like the Top, Skullclamp was quickly banned in standard after it’s printing. The card advantage it presented was just far to powerful. Basicaly for 1 mana and the cost of a disposable creature, you could draw 2 cards, which quickly and completely threw off the tempo of the game!
#8 – Time Vault – Rare
The thing that makes Time Vault special is the amount of time it was banned.Many cards have been restricted for their entire printing (or almost), but this is the card to spend the most time on the banned list. Unfortunately when it became un-banned (it is now restricted to 1 in type 1 only), there were many first turn win combos running rampant and the cost of a turn proved a little pricey. None the less, Time Vault is an awesome cast.
#7 – Grim Monolith – Rare
Because of its interactions with other cards and its power in its block, Grim Monolith ranks 7th on this list. It is a necessity that this card be in a deck that is very high powered and full of combos. The root of infinite mana combos, this card acts as a larger Sol Ring and still sells for a pretty penny.
