I decided to make this thread out of curiosity and boredom so, if you think it's interesting, comment. If not, just ignore me.

He's the thing: if hostile aliens invaded earth and the future of mankind were to be determined by 5 individual Magic: the Gathering games in a not-yet-determined format against the most advanced alien intellect, which 5 players would you pick to play these games and why?

First off. The aliens would ahve the abiltiy to see throguh cards in all likely hood, secondly. if the aliens decided to play fair for some bizzare reason, i dont think it would matter who we chose because they would ahve the most knowlege on deck buildign asthey would go throught the net and see the frequencies of which cards work best and woul ahve the most rediculous side board for any format. Including limited.

No. These aliens don't have special powers. They are just VERY smart (200+ IQ), but duo to some cultural bias, they always challenge people of the planets they conquer to some obscure local competition, cause they feel like they should be able to beat their slaves in EVERYTHING and thus crush their spirits. Also, are you really disputing the plausibility of ALIENS coming to play magic?

Now, will someone provide a non-troll answer?

It's hard to provide a non-troll answer to a troll question

OK, for some reason I am responsible for choosing our representatives? Firstly, myself. If the fate of the world hangs in the balance, I wouldn't trust anyone else. Next PV and LSV. These guys are so reliable - they don't have to have a better deck to win, in any format. Definitely some representative of the Japanese, though I'm not really familiar enough with their names, because they can be counted on to find a meta-breaking deck. Finally, Chapin. If his innovative deck ideas and skilled play don't win for us, maybe his rap can convince the aliens that they don't want this planet after all.

Why not just ask who the top 5 MTG players in the world are?

Because this is less entertaining. And because this leaves out things like "who wouldn't fold under pressure", etc.

And xJudicatorx list looks a lot like my own. (3 out of 5... I'd also probably pick myself to, for the exact same reason... lol) ^^
