The letter H!ow's your Magic trivia kung fu? How many firsts, greatests, and mosts of the color black do you know?

All these questions are about straight black cards as of the release of Darksteel -- no multicolor cards. Portal and Starter sets are considered, but Unglued is not (otherwise B.F.M. would be the answer to a lot of the questions!). Some questions may have more than one answer.

B.F.M. (Big Furry Monster) from Unglued
  • What black card comes first in the alphabet (in English)?

  • What black card comes last in the alphabet (in English)?

  • What black creature has the highest sum of power/toughness (again, Unglued's B.F.M. aside)?

  • What black card has the highest converted mana cost (outside of Unglued)?

  • What is the most common black creature type?

  • What card has the most creature types of any black creature?

  • What black Wall has the highest sum of power/toughness?

  • What monoblack Legend has the highest sum of power/toughness?

  • What card is the most-reprinted black creature?

  • What card is the most-reprinted black sorcery?

  • What card is the most-reprinted black instant?

  • What card is the most-reprinted black enchantment?

  • What card was the first black card banned from Magic tournaments?

  • What black card generally has the highest value on the secondary market?

  • What black card has the "blackest" art -- meaning, having the most black filling up the card's illustration frame?

The answers will appear tomorrow, along with a very special Wallpaper of the Week!
