I rarely ever rage quit in my magic games, but this one guy got me good.

Him: Swamp, Sol Ring.
*I play my land on my turn*

Him: Swamp, Dark Ritual, Monomania.
Me: "Daaaang! That's intense... I can handle this though. I've got hit with worse."

Him: Haunting Echoes

It was a 2v2 game. Looking back, I kinda feel guilty for ragequitting and leaving my partner. My emotions got the better of me, but I shall never forget the name Monomania.

It's different. Merely being different makes me want to exploit that difference somehow. Tell me anyone, is there some way that you might actually want to target yourself with this? I know about One With Nothing. What if you wanted to dump a bunch of cards in your graveyard but keep one in particular?


This does seem to be sounding quite like a Yu-Gi-Oh! combo, not a MAGIC one, but anyway I loved that show. :)

Joey Wheeler would rock this card and win a World Championship with it somehow doing something all you Kaibas with your 'real decks' would facepalm at and ask how the hell he got that far with such a shit deck.....xD

Discard that is only worth using in a non-discard deck. Interesting.

Great against a deck I have, but the deck is bad, so...eh.

I know what I cling to when all hope is lost. OH YEAH

One of those cards that might sound pretty awesome to new players but in fact aren't really that good.

Also the flavor text seems out of place. "All hope is lost"?
Actually, there is one last spark of hope right on the opponent's hand.
Unless Sorin was being rhetorical and means that this last thought in the opponent's mind clings to desperation - but who would want a card in his deck that causes him desperation?

SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY! MONOMANIA! ONE NIGHT ONLY!....reminds me of a commercial for something involving motorcycles.

Apparently vermin cling to the best card in their hand, according to the flavour text..

Got two of these at the prerelease. That kind of ... blew. Getting Sorin Markov and a Primordial Hydra eased the pain, of course ... but two lost games later, this newbie MTG player had been starting at a useless Monomania a lot.

Maybe if they cost this as BBBB it'd be alright.

Bad in constructed. Completely obliterates your opponents in limited. Played it T4 (I started) in my very first match, opponent discards 6 cards. Then I doom blade his bomb (the card he kept). GG.
Second round, make him discard 5, but I eventually lose since I only had 6 swamps, not one forest. (B/G)
I survived for around 6-7 turns longer than I should have thanks to monomania though.
Third round, diabolic tutor turn 4, monomania turn 5. I win.

Same went for the second match, 2-0 (one thanks to monomania). Over 5 games, I used it 4 times, and it discarded 21 cards.

It was a dead draw against aggro decks.. so I just sided it out against those.
Ended up 9th, could have gone top 8 but I failed epicly one game and gave away the victory. My deck was good and probably would have won most of the games monomania got for me, but damn it made me win hard.
