I can't count the number of times I've gotten a Hypnotic Specter out on turn 1 and started wailing away.

Fantastic card, of course, and this is my favorite art for it.

Best art for this card (5th ed. is very close 2nd).
This art SCREAMS out for a promotional foil.

Amazing card. A staple for black players. This particular version has one of the best art for this card...as well as amazing and slightly amusing flavor text. I shouldn't have to explain what you can do with this card--it bumps you up 2 turns in terms of how much mana you have to play with and is perfect for another of the strongest cards in black: Necropotence.

Congratulations Dark Ritual on #1 magic card on the Gatherer!

Tied with 20+ other cards for a score of 5.0, but it has more votes than any of the rest.

Most of the ways to win a game of Magic: the Gathering start by saying "Swamp, Dark Ritual, Dark Ritual...."

This card is hilariously dumb and powerful. You need a playset. By the way, unlike Black Lotus, you can actually get one. Swag. B|
