MTG: Top 10 Most Useful Cards
Taking a look at the most useful cards ever printed in MTG.
The most useful cards ever? Yep, that’s what these are. However, I don’t want to say that these cards are the best cards ever. These are cards that can really save your butt or speed up your game and aren’t impossible to find. Also, these cards are affordable. None cost over $10. Probably none over $5, unless it’s some special edition version. Without anymore discussion, here we go!

#10 Spirit Link & Vampiric Link
These cards are a great way to gain some life when you need it. They only cost one mana! Plus, these cards can be played both offensively and defensively. If you put these on your opponent’s creatures then when they deal damage to you it is then reversed by the life you gain. However, if your life goes to zero or below this won’t trigger. So watch out!
This card has been around since Stronghold and has been in almost every red deck since then. Lightning Bolt almost replaced this card on the list, but since they are harder to get a hold of Shock took its place. This card is a good way to hit your opponent for quick damage or deal with a creature that you just can’t seem to destroy.
Although Terror can’t destroy black or artifact creatures, it still is one of the most useful cards in MTG. This card has been around since Alpha! It’s an instant, it costs two mana, and it can seriously mess up your opponent. Sure there are cards like Terminate, Dark Banishing, etc., but this card is the original and is still in print! Can’t beat a classic.
Counterspell is another card that has been around since the early days of MTG. One of the best feelings in MTG is your when your opponent taps all their land to play some huge creature or whatever and you just tap two islands and say, “Counter it.” This card has made more players tear out their hair than any other.
