The 10 Biggest Magic The Gathering Creatures Ever Printed

The 10 Biggest Magic The Gathering Creatures Ever Printed

When it comes down to raw attack and defense these creatures blow the rest out of the water… but are they overrated?

Magic the gathering cards have been printed for nearly 17 years. Everyone has their favorite thing about the game, but many people seem to agree, no matter how useless the card actually is, huge creatures are awesome! Just holding a 10/10 attacker in their hand will give some players shivers. The purpose of this article is to uncover the 10 biggest, baddest raw attacking creatures in the game…Timmy players enjoy!

These cards are in order of TOTAL attack and defense.

a few of the less exciting 10/10’s are not listed…


Leveler – Mirrodin – 2003

Good Luck trying to get this one to work out. For five mana, a 10/10 looks pretty awesome, but you better have a quick plan. good luck drawing a card next turn. The best use I can think of would be Pandemonium fodder.

Worth-it-meter: 1 out of 5


Progenitus – Conflux – 2009

The new “greatest card of all time” comes up a bit short in the huge factor. Yes it is practically an automatic 10 every turn, but its very plain and simple with protection from your stuff too. If you ever get the mana to actually play this guy, get your disenchants ready for Moat or Form of the Dragon. This card is best used, if not in a spectrum deck (obviously), something with Elvish Piper.

Worth-it-meter: 4 out of 5


Leviathan – the Dark – 1994

At one time Leviathan was THE BIGGEST creature ever printed. Although it has major drawbacks it has managed to be re-printed by popular demand most recently in Time Spiral (2006) and a couple other sets in the 1990’s. A collector’s favorite this card is really more fun to talk about than play. Better have some disposable lands ’cause its going to put 4 islands in the graveyard every turn it attacks.. but then it IS a 10/10 trampler. and in 1994 he was pretty f-ing scary. With some of the newer cards having less drawbacks, this cards has seen a major drop in price and use recently.

Denizen of the Deep – Portal, Second Age – 1998

And Chuck Norris 99/99?! It is a card so good that neither was allowed to leave for the market!

Nice list, i would love to have any of those. My biggest is the 10/10 Skyshround behemoth, and he\’s only good for 2 rounds (fading 2).

Polar kraken Is Amazing if you can get it out..trampler…plus only lose 1 land a turn…that and Crucible of worlds makes you constantly stay at 11 lands…pretty solid set up…Also theirs a Vampire Hexmage that makes an excellent turn 2/3 combo with dark depths…Sack it to remove all counters from target permanent.. imagine that… On turn 3 Sack it and make your 20/20

opening hand for a 1 turn win: swamp, dark ritual x4, entomb, patriarchs bidding, in the deck you have 3 hellkite overlords: drop the swamp, play 4 dark rituals for 9 mana, play buried alive with 3 of the black mana, put 3 hellkite overlords (8/8 haste) into your graveyard, then play patriarchs bidding with 5 of your remaining mana and bring them into play, attack on that turn for 24 damage and it’s game.

Don’t forget Emrakul, the Aeons Torn! One of my absolute favorite cards in a mana ramp, green Eldrazi deck. Or, if you’re using Elvish Piper it’s great too, you just don’t get to use its “take an extra turn when you cast this” ability that way.

@contrmplative: Yes, if you happened to draw that specific hand, it would be a very good combo (slightly confused though, since you mentioned entomb at first, and then said buried alive – assuming you meant to say buried alive first). The only thing is, if you drew all those cards EXCEPT buried alive, and maybe another land instead, you’d have a bunch of useless mana and nothing to summon or actually do. Also, why did you choose Hellkite Overlords? They are good, I guess the creature would be arbitrary since the casting cost would be a moot point.

quicksilver amulet followed by emrakul the aeons torn, hi there 15/15 creature that hen paired with it that betrays an 11/11 you get whoever you attack with your flying protection from all colours emrakul to sacrifice six permanents and they become yours on the battlefeild.

I know that there’s a good chance I’m wrong but what about primordial hydra, trample when its power is over ten and any counters on it double on every one of your upkeeps. I understand it could take a while to get big but after a few turns it would get rediculous
