And the winner is…

Thanks to the noble souls who took up the challenge of naming all the cards in my playmat. Your average score was 16.12/17 – not too shabby! I hope you all had fun with this guessing game.

Here is the full list:

  1. Bad Moon
  2. Sorceress Queen
  3. Demonic Tutor
  4. Sengir Vampire
  5. Hypnotic Specter
  6. Lord of the Pit
  7. Royal Assassin
  8. Phyrexian Obliterator
  9. Phyrexian Plaguelord
  10. Gray Merchant of Asphodel
  11. Pack Rat
  12. Order of the Ebon Hand
  13. Bloodghast
  14. Nantuko Shade
  15. Nether Shadow
  16. (Background) Castle Sengir
  17. (Background) Erebos, God of the Dead

I’m impressed that people could get Sorceress Queen at all! In my early Magic years, she was right up there with Hippie as an iconic black card. Did you know she used to be worth 5 bucks back then?

Castle Sengir was another selection that seemed odd or unlikely to some. If you know that I love Homelands, though, it is not so strange. Sure, it’s a terrible Magic card, but Castle Sengir is a land that I feel should be on par with Urborg for Vorthos gravitas. Baron Sengir lives there, yo!

So, without further ado, the winner of the contest – and a “March of the Evil Ones” playmat is…

James Smith!

Not only was James the first entrant with a perfect score, but he also went to great lengths to describe his choices. And, he wisely noted that I could have been a dick and considered Whip of Erebos an 18th card. But I didn’t 🙂 Congrats, James!

Thanks again to everyone who took the time to play. Your emails made my week! And fear not, whether you live in Toronto or elsewhere, these playmats will be available very soon.

P.S. Sorry Marcus! /Worldfire
