MTG – Top 10 World Enchantments

MTG – Top 10 World Enchantments

Taking a look at the best world enchantments ever printed!

World Enchantments are something that many new MTG players aren’t familiar with. They function similar to how legendary permanents do. When another world enchantment comes into play (it does not have to have the same name) the oldest one is destroyed and the newest one to come into play remains in play. So in other words, there can only be one world enchantment in play at a time. There aren’t many of these, but there are certainly some good ones and some bad ones. Let’s take a look at the good ones.

#10 Eye Of Sungularity

This card ensures that you won’t see more than one of anything (except basic lands). The card Leyline Of Singularity was based off this card. This card can be used to eliminate combos or simply get a bit more control in the game. The illustration reminds me of Mortal Combat or Street Fighter. Anyway, this card is pretty powerful, and this is reinfroced by it’s baby, Leyline Of Singularity. Why mimic a card unless it was awesome?

#9 Chaosphere

Although this card isn’t someting that can be used all the time, when you are facing some creatures with flying, this card does more than save the day. This card makes flying creatures incredibly useless. They become weaker than regular creatures. This is a card that can be slipped into any red deck to deal with pesky flying creatures (similar to Spidersilk Armor in a green deck, though much more effective!).

#8 Bazaar Of Wonders

This card is a great way to stop your opponent from playing a Blaze, Fog, Counterspell, or Terror ever again. Just make sure one is in the graveyard and then play this card. Not only that, but if you put this in a mill deck and mill a couple cards you may be able to take out an opponent’s combo with this.

#7 Tombstone Stairwell

This is another card that isn’t always a great play, but in the right situations can win the game. This card belongs in those decks that use Buried Alive and other methods to dump creatures in your own graveyard. Of course, as long as you have your graveyard filled with more creatures than your opponent, you will have a creature advantage. In the right deck, this card can win the game as soon as one turn after you play it. Sure your opponent gets some zombie tokens too, but as long as you have more (or some effects that boost your creatures), you’ll smash through their defenses. A powerful card indeed.

i know this isn’t an enchant world card, but i think the best OVERALL (or the most fun combined with Tunnel Vision) enchantment is Necromancer’s covenant.

I think tunnel vision could be more useful with something like condemn or cards with Fateseal. that could turn into an instant mill if you put a one of on the bottom of their library. although i will agree that necromancer’s covenant is fun. if you’re using it in a BUW deck, then maybe take Tunnel Vision out and use Mind Funeral since it costs so much less and is very effective as well

i like that you make these lists, they are fun. But you should not title them “the best”, cause you are unarguable wrong about alot of these cards. Also, even the really good cards you name, you don’t explain why they are actually good (like nethier void.)
So keep it up, but please learn more about the game.

I play Concordant Crossroads all the time, and I really think the card doesn’t get enough credit.

With this card it’s not about attacking, but mana advantage.

If I’m playing an elf deck I can, and usually do, have around 7 mana out on my 2nd turn thanks to the crossroads:

first turn: forest, crossroads
second turn: forest, 1 drop mana producer (birds, or any sort of elf), tap for mana, rinse and repeat until your hand is empty.

Also any card that taps to produce a creature token benefits from the crossroads.

This is an extremely underrated card, and I’m really glad that you’ve mentioned it in your piece.
