O Singleton, I sing of thee fondly recalling silly (silly meant 'blessed' in Shakespeare's time) days of yore.

So where is it?


In my opinion Singleton (one card of each name except for basic lands) demands a high level of skill in both deck construction and play. And the refining of singleton decks is 45% of the fun.

Also the fairness (not one archetype capable of domination) of the format, whether it be Standard, Extended of Legacy, (Vintage is almost singleton anyway....) is astounding.


Here is my current UB Standard Singleton List:

Lands
5 [LRW] Swamp (3)
5 [NPH] Island (1)
1 [SOM] Darkslick Shores
1 [M11] Drowned Catacomb
1 [WWK] Creeping Tar Pit
1 [WWK] Tectonic Edge
1 [ZEN] Jwar Isle Refuge
1 [ZEN] Verdant Catacombs
1 [ZEN] Marsh Flats
1 [ZEN] Misty Rainforest
1 [WWK] Bojuka Bog
1 [MBS] Inkmoth Nexus
1 [WWK] Halimar Depths
1 [WWK] Dread Statuary
1 [ROE] Evolving Wilds
1 [M11] Terramorphic Expanse

// Creatures
1 [ROE] Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
1 [M11] Grave Titan
1 [M11] Frost Titan
1 [SOM] Wurmcoil Engine
1 [ROE] Sea Gate Oracle
1 [SOM] Skinrender

// Spells
1 [ROE] Inquisition of Kozilek
1 [M11] Preordain
1 [NPH] Despise
1 [M11] Duress
1 [ZEN] Disfigure
1 [ZEN] Spell Pierce
1 [M12] Ponder
1 [SOM] Twisted Image
1 [M12] Visions of Beyond
1 [ZEN] Expedition Map
1 [NPH] Gitaxian Probe
1 [M11] Mana Leak
1 [MBS] Go for the Throat
1 [M12] Doom Blade
1 [M11] Sign in Blood
1 [M12] Distress
1 [SOM] Grasp of Darkness
1 [ZEN] Into the Roil
1 [M12] Redirect
1 [SOM] Ratchet Bomb
1 [M11] Jace Beleren
1 [M11] Cancel
1 [NPH] Dismember
1 [SOM] Stoic Rebuttal
1 [ROE] Consuming Vapors
1 [M11] Jace's Ingenuity
1 [M11] Liliana Vess
1 [NPH] Karn Liberated
1 [MBS] Black Sun's Zenith
1 [MBS] Blue Sun's Zenith

// Sideboard
SB: 1 [M12] Deathmark
SB: 1 [ROE] Vendetta
SB: 1 [M12] Flashfreeze
SB: 1 [WWK] Smother
SB: 1 [ZEN] Marsh Casualties
SB: 1 [NPH] Geth's Verdict
SB: 1 [NPH] Psychic Barrier
SB: 1 [ZEN] Vampire Nighthawk
SB: 1 [WWK] Abyssal Persecutor
SB: 1 [M12] Monomania
SB: 1 [ROE] Consume the Meek
SB: 1 [M11] Mind Control
SB: 1 [NPH] Life's Finale
SB: 1 [M12] Rune-Scarred Demon
SB: 1 [ROE] Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

Anyone else love the format?
Care to comment on it, or post a decklist, or suggest cards for my list?

I'd rather play singleton over EDH any day. I hate casual multiplayer formats. Thats just my opinion.

Ya agree!!...Singleton feels like a real game of MTG -- EDH whilst it can be fun....is another species
