I was thinking of what would be better, a 6/4 red creature or a 5/5 white creature, both cost is 5. 3 colorless and 2 of red/white. What do you think?

Its just a creature with no sense at all. Don't really matter what card are those. But If you just ask 6/4 or 5/5(both cards dont have any abilities, they are just bad creatures.............)? what would you choose? The color doesn't matter too.

1) If both are vanilla, the white one will be more played in constructed, seeing as how Red generally has faster winning strategies and will not wait to curve out to 5 mana for a spell that will not ensure victory. In limited, both will see play, although again, I am sure the white will be more played as white usually comes with some bigger high end creatures as finishers.

2) In any constructed, the red and white vanilla creatures will never be played as they are both terrible...but if you had to put one of them in a red deck or white deck, the white would obviously fit better.

Ball Lightning > 6/4 for 5
even Serra Angel > 5/5 for 5
and Baneslayer > all...

4 toughness is easier to kill than 5. 6 power = 4 attacks. 5 power = 4 attacks.

5/5 is better.

Also, there are no good 6/4 creatures. But there are plenty of good 5/5 creatures.

How good or bad a card is, is determined entirely by the cards around it. For Example take one with nothing a kami block rare, which lets you discard your hand for a B sounds bad. But what if they printed this 0 artifact if you have 0 cards in your hand you win the game. All of a sudden its part of a broken 2 card combo that can kill on turn 1.

For a card to become better or worse than something there has to be something to compare them with in the first place. So in answer to your question where i guess we are comparing both cards in a vacuum they are both the same. You start with 20 life so the extra 1 power makes no difference as you still kill in the same number of hits, there are no other cards that can make the extra power better and the extra toughness also makes no difference, as both cards still trade with each other, there are no sweepers that deal 4 damage to all creatures. It is only once you factor in other cards that one card can become better than another.

Clearly the 6/4 is better because Ridge Rannet is a 6/4 and I've cast that before! So you're saving a whole two mana!

Ridge Rannet...... and Yoked Plowbeast.

Both with cycling. I have a BG Beast Bidding Deck for fun. It works like this: Cycling, then Patriarch's Bidding. So I play Ridge Rannet or Yoked Plowbeast? They virtually are the same as their cycling costs are of 2 colorless. So the only difference are the colors and the fact that one is a 6/4 and the other a 5/5.

Depends if the opponent has a 4/4 or a 6/6 in play.
