The 10 Best Magic Cards Ever Printed
These are the most powerful and broken MTG cards I could find. All of them are restricted or banned in some way… they are, in fact, the best cards out there.
As an avid MTG player, I have seen many cards used during a game… These following 10 cards are quite possibly the strongest individual cards I have found. Don’t get too excited if you have more than one of them, they are ALL restricted in the Vintage (type 1) format. Well, go ahead and get a little excited, you are the owner of a gem. This list could go on forever, but I am going to pay particular mind to some of the more broken artifact combos.

Without further adieu…
the top 10 countdown!
Accelerating the game in your favor is the best way to gain an advantage in this game. while this card appears to have a drawback, when you think about it, it’s totally worth it! It allows you to beef your hand up each turn, giving you a massive amount of options. This card was the center of many tournament decks at one point, and is still regarded as one of the best cards in the game when in its element.
Unless you have the right deck for this guy, it is difficult to use being restricted in all formats. none the less, it is a tournament staple capable of getting you all the other cards on this list back and has been used to anhillilate opponents in vintage since it was printed.
Woa. This card is the best of the best tutors. Also the original tutor, it gave you the option to search your deck for anything (like the card missing from your combo or another card on this list) with no drawback. It only costs 2, giving you a chance to play that card as well!
Off the top of my head I can think of a first turn win with this guy. Life is worthless if your opponent is dead! Why not mow yourself down to get a major advantage?
(Try, on your first turn; Drop a Mountain. drop a Black Lotus. Tap the Lotus for 3 green. cast “Healing Leaves” to gain 3 life. Use the remaining 2 Green to cast Channel and pay 20 life. Tap the mountain to Blaze through for 20 lethal damage… your opponent didn’t even get to take their turn!)
