10 Greatest MTG One Drops Of All Time

What are the strongest turn one plays from across the years?

Wizards Of The Coast

Whether you were playing in Alpha or just started playing for Ikoria, Magic the Gathering is a game which has soared into the hearts of many across multiple generations. It's the game which just keeps expanding, players come and go but old players often come back because this game is just so damn good. In that time, one of the things which have consistently remained incredibly powerful are the one drops. This list will show you how much power one drops have had over the entire period.

The term 'one drops' relates specifically to one mana permanents, so unfortunately there'll be no instant and sorcery spells on this list - not that it would make too much of a difference as continuous effects are generally stronger than one-off abilities. However, this does include things like artifacts. Sorry Phyrexian Dreadnought, you may be both an artifact and a creature but the purer artifacts just bumped you off this list.

So draw for turn, unless you're going first, play your land, and get ready for these early-game plays which will both baffle and anger your opponent.
