Chimney Imp casting, opponents are laughing. Chimney Imp dying, opponents are crying.

I want to see Duel Decks: Chimney Imp versus Storm Crow.

While most people focus on the stats, few actually appreciate the card for what it is; a work of art. You can actually hear the haunting laughter of the imp in your mind. You can feel the smooth skin of the imp. You can taste the papery wings. But the smell is the most horrible. The odor had me not sleeping for 4 years. That's a long time to go without sleeping.

I once pulled this card out to an officer, instead of my license. He immediately apologized for pulling me over, and let me go.

Every once and a while a card comes around that defines the entire metagame of MTG. Skullclamp, Jitte, ect.

Chimney Imp blows any card previously mentioned out of the water, it's so good it completely destroyed the current meatgame and created a new one, which it then proceeded to destroy.

It is said that grinding a chimney imp into a fine powder and snorting it will make the user the ultimate magic player, but no man has been willing to sacrifice a card this wonderful for a skill gain.

This card is a diamond, shining out from the middle of the rough. Life is Chimney Imp.

For you crybabies whining about the casting cost, you're completely forgetting that you get to untap those five lands on your VERY NEXT TURN with no drawback whatsoever.

Also, it absolutely obliterates your opponent's pace if it dies - but good luck trying to kill it, because it's immune to deathmark.

If that isnt enough, it has rampage: 0, so you can attack every turn without fear. Chimney Imp LIVES SIDEWAYS.

A while ago, a friend of mine was playing some sort of wacky BlueBlackRed deck against my WhiteBlack control deck. At some point in the game, he cast Chimney Imp. I wasn't very good at Magic back then, so I thought to myself, "Meh, I've seen better." He then enchanted it with Splinter Twin and Pemmin's Aura. Like an amateur, I wasn't impressed; I still thought it was a mediocre card, enchanted with two mediocre auras. Then he dropped Phyrexian Altar.

Suddenly realizing what was happening, I looked at my hand. Vendetta, Terror, Radiant's Judgment...all useless. In desperation, I equipped a Skullclamp to my Solemn Simulacrum and then Annihilated it, hoping to draw an answer. Luckily, my third card was Path to Exile, although I didn't draw anything else useful. So ... (see all)

I once dropped Chimney Imp at a blackjack table in Vegas. The dealer just bowed his head and scooped

After months of searching, I could find literally only two things wrong with this card: it dies to removal and can't kill Storm Crow. If this ever becomes reprinted, I'll have to sell my house to be able to afford a playset.

Drop this in a serious vintage tournament and watch your opponent instantly scoop. Moxes, black lotus, whatever, his hands will simply shoot out and pick everything up, his eyes will stay downcast as he silently acknowledges his total defeat. Even if he has Force of Will for Chimney Imp it's not like hes going to waste everyones time casting it, because the mere fact that you just cast a Chimney Imp goes to show that you're obviously playing 3 more.

In all seriousness, in a limited environment this guy did something black normally didn't do, disrupt draws. Mirrodin had scry, so near the endgame this guy could really save you. Of course it was the endgame, so everyone forgot about poor chimney imp and now people look down at it. As bad as he might seem, nobody will ever want to kill this card unless they absolutely have to. Respect the imp.

I took Chimney Imp to a Grand Prix and lost every round. Clearly Chimney Imp refuses to be used for such selfish purposes as winning

One of my decks is a 60 card Chimney Imp decks, with a 15 card sideboard of Chimney Imps. My friends told me that this deck is illegal and I know the true reason. Chimney Imp is just too strong. As I hold this deck in my hands I can feel its power coursing through my veins. I can almost taste the confusion, fear and fright that my opponents feel when I play this deck. Yes, when I come to after the game they tell me I'm crazy and that cutting people with the cardboard doesn't count as paying the mana cost but I know who is crazy! Itis them! they are crazy they are crazy hail to the imp let their heathen blood flow hail chimney imp hail the end let the blood soak the fibers of darkness H̘̬̬̠̬͉̀̂ͅa̘̟̲̦͕̟̽i̠͖̟̰̜̞l̶̪͖͈̹͓ ͖̗̗̲͍̠̹̚͠C̝̯̱͚̘̎h̦̪̱͍̰̪͊͡i̦̥̩͙̠͜m̢̰̰̝̩n͙̍͋͊̋̌̓eͫ͑̐͝y͙̝͉͇͓̦̯̓̓ ͌̃͛̑̾̄͟I̶̼̦͉̝ͮͮͦ̿m̗̻̠̱̼̺̂̒͌̈ͣ̃͂͘p̥͈̏ͥ̄͗̊̚͢!̯͙̜̥̘͖ͪ͋͐̚ ͔̗̱͐̎̈́̒͆Ḧ̳̜̗͇̲̤̥̊̏̔ͧ̇ͤa͕̤̗̱̮̠͈ͩ͊̉ͨi͉l̲ ͔̺͕̱̙̐ͬͮ̀͒Cͨ̇̂̔̓̓͏̪͓h̢̳̞̔͆i̗̯͔̝͠m̗̥̜̰͇̫ͯͬ̇ń͇̮̼͇̼͖ë́̿̀ͫ...

@azureHaights: Great comment! Love Tropes...

Anyway I just wanted to say that its been over a year since I first read Laguz's comment, and I still randomly chuckle to myself over "CHIMNEY IMP LIVES SIDEWAYS"

It's hard to evaluate the worst cards in magic based on rating due to the phony ratings on this card. If not for the joke ratings, this might be in the bottom ratings of all cards.

Pro combo: Turn one two Black Lotuses and drop this on your enemies. Follow up with a 0ne with Nothing to freak them out even more.

A black Storm Crow. You trade 1 power and a high converted mana cost for insane card advantage. Simply fantastic.
