What's your favorite card, and why?
Kelly Digges: There are lots of cards I like. I love Sliver Queen because it's the first card whose art ever made me feel tiny. I love Mindslaver because it has probably my favorite line of text on a Magic card ever. And I love Reaper King for its unapologetic five-color, "twuberg," artifact-gold frame, "harvest time" wackiness.
But if you're talking about specific cards, I'd have to say it's the Revised Edition Shivan Dragon I opened the first time I ever bought Magic cards. I bought a 60-card starter and two boosters, but I don't remember which order I opened them or which one Shivan Dragon was in. Anyway, it's one of the first 90 cards I ever owned, and although it may not be all that rare or sought-after, it's very dear to me.
Are there stronger cards? Sure. Cards with better art? Definitely. But that particular copy of Shivan Dragon marks the moment when I fell totally in love with Magic. In fact, that very card now hangs on my cube wall, to remind me why I work on this web site every day:
I'm here for the dragons.
