Magic The Gathering Trivia Questions

1. There are seven Weirds in the Magic: the Gathering blocks of "Ravnica" and "Return to Ravnica". They are all creatures. They are always two colors in some way. Which two colors are Weirds?

From Quiz
Night of the Living Weird

Answer: Blue and red

Three of the Weirds have both a red mana symbol and a blue mana symbol in their mana cost, while three have a hybrid red/blue symbol. One is just blue, but spending red mana on it has an additional effect.

2. What white card has the following flavor text? "I have seen planes leveled and all life rendered to dust. It brought no pleasure, even to a heart as dark as mine." -Sorin Markov

From Quiz MTG Flavor

Answer: Day of Judgment

This flavor text for Day of Judgment only appears on the Zendikar version of this card. It does not appear on the Magic 2011 or Magic 2012 versions.

3. What is the name of a new ability from "Scars of Mirrodin" block which involves having at least three artifacts in play?

From Quiz Scars of Mirrodin

Answer: Metalcraft

Transmute means: "Discard this card: Search your library for a card with the same converted mana cost as this card, reveal it, and put it into your hand" Modular means: "This enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it. When it's put into a graveyard, you may put its +1/+1 counters on target artifact creature" Affinity means: "This spell costs X less to play for each X you control" If you control three or more artifacts you have assembled Metalcraft.

4. Two Alpha cards were incorrectly printed with a mana cost of 1R. Name those two cards.

From Quiz Misprinted Magic Cards

Answer: Orcish Artillery & Orcish Oriflamme

Orcish Oriflamme's correct mana cost is 3R and Orcish Artillery's is 1RR. Both were corrected in Beta.

5. Rob Alexander designed the art for Time Spiral's Flagstones of Trokair. Which two nonbasic lands did he illustrate in Lorwyn?

From Quiz Lorwyn Art

Answer: Ancient Amphitheater and Vivid Meadow

Rob Alexander also illustrated two basic lands in Lorwyn, but he is probably more well known for his work on the Ravnica dual lands.

6. I'll give you a description and you tell me which Mana color to which it refers: This is the "permission" color; Remove Soul and Relic Bind are members...

From Quiz Magic the Gathering Mania! (Old school)

Answer: Blue

Blue is the color of altering, preventing and controlling your opponent. It's also my favorite color! :)

7. The "rock" is one of the most popular decks to ever hit the extended arena. It is popular because of the tremendous board control it brings backed up with hand destruction and recursion. What do you call the board-clearing enchantment in the deck?

From Quiz Magic The Gathering: EXTENDED

Answer: Pernicious Deed

The Pernicious Deed is the best board clearing permanent there is. It can destroy almost anything in play and even if it is BG based, it is still splashable in many extended decks. You can get it into play as early as turn two if you've got a mana producer and that's what you call speed. The disk is way too slow and can only be played in vintage and legacy; Oblivion Stone is even slower and almost impossible to use; Lastly, the kegs are also vintage/legacy types that cannot destroy enchantments.

8. This is the card flavor text for the Tempest version Counterspell. I remember my good old friend chanting this during our rath cycle counter wars. Do you remember the text guys?

From Quiz Magic The Gathering: VINTAGE

Answer: It was probably a lousy spell in the first place

I hope that the counterspell card would get reprinted come 10th edition. I've probably used this card more than any other and I will surely miss it if it rotates out of extended.

9. This land untaps an attacking creature and having it deal no combat damage. (This land was created during "the DARK" ages)

From Quiz Magic The Gathering (all formats)

Answer: Maze Of Ith

This land can single out almost any creature on the board. You would find this on most decks during the ice age era especially in UW control decks who are up against necro decks and until the rath cycle has arrived, players have decided to replace it with wastelands instead.

10. Slobad was born under which moon?

From Quiz Mirrodin-a Darksteel Core, 5 Moons, and Memnarch

Answer: blue

Because Slobad was born under the blue moon, he received a large increase to his intelligence that caused the poor goblin to be banished.

11. Betrayers of Kamigawa: This card is a 5/4 black creature. Its type is a Rat Ninja. Who is it?

From Quiz Magic The Gathering Cards II

Answer: Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, is a 5/4 black creature that costs four colorless and two black mana to put into play. It has Ninjutsu which reads "Return an unblocked attacker you control to your hand: Put this card into play from your hand tapped and attacking." It also has "pay 1 colorless and 1 black mana: Regenerate Ink- Eyes, Servant of Oni."

12. Legions: This card is a 13/13 and can crush almost every other creature. Who is it?

From Quiz Magic: The Gathering Cards

Answer: Krosan Cloudscraper

Krosan Cloudscraper is a Legions rare card. It is a 13/13 forest creature. Its man cost is seven uncolored and three forest mana. The card reads "At the beginning of your upkeep, you must pay two forests, or scarifice Krosan Cloudscraper." This card also has morph, which is that you can put it down for seven uncolored and two forest mana as a face down 2/2 creature.

13. What being sends the akki Kiki-Jiki on an errand to the Soratami City? (Also pictured on his card)

From Quiz Tales of Kamigawa

Answer: A Dragon

In this story, Kiki Jiki is sent to Oboro by a Ryu to retreive his stolen pearl. For this he is granted the power to make illusionary doubles (One of which is captured by Meloku)

14. What set is "Torii Watchward" in?

From Quiz Magic the Gathering: The 2004/05 releases

Answer: Saviors of Kamigawa

Torii Watchward is a decent card. But for 5 mana, I'd rather have a 4/4 flyer with vigilance, aka Serra Angel.

15. Which angel from Tempest is a 3/3 for 3 colorless and 2 white?

From Quiz Magic: The Gathering Angels

Answer: Avenging Angel

If Avenging Angel is put into any graveyard from play, you may put Avenging Angel on top of owner's library.

16. Who created "Magic: The Gathering"?

From Quiz Magic: The Gathering

Answer: Richard Garfield

Garfield showcased "Magic" at GenCon 1993 in Seattle. Of course, over 10 years later the MTG juggernaut rolls on.

17. Ths card is from stronghold and it is an enchantment. If you pay one and discard a card at random you can put a +1/+1 counter on a creature. Which card is it?

From Quiz Magic the Gathering

Answer: Amok

I like to use Amok in comonation with Spike Weaver and Mr. Babycakes.

18. What card in the Mirrodin series allows you not to lose the game and your opponent not to win the game?

From Quiz Mirrodin Magic

Answer: Platinum Angel

Most players think this card is considered cheating. However that is not true because it can easily be destroyed.

19. What is the overall strategy of a Psychatog deck?

From Quiz MTG Deck Archtypes and Tournament History

Answer: Draw tons of cards, then discard them all to the 'tog

Psychatog has the ability to discard a cards for +1/+1, and remove 2 cards in your graveyard from the game for +1/+1. Therefore, with a 7 card hand, the Psychatog can get +10/+10, and with certain spells, much more is possible.

20. What does Shatterstorm do?

From Quiz Magic The Gathering

Answer: Buries all artifacts

This card is in 5th Edition, Classic 6th Edition, Antiquities, and Discontinued sets. It is a sorcery that is usually classified as uncommon.

21. What was the only card reprinted in 7th Edition to retain its original Alpha wording?

From Quiz Obscure MtG Assortment

Answer: Stream of Life

Interrupts have been changed to instants, wordings have been changed for clarification and ease of use, and only Stream of Life has been reprinted, unscathed.

22. How many different 'Armor Thrull' cards are there in 'Fallen Empires'?

From Quiz Fallen Empires

Answer: 4

There are four different 'Armour Thrull' cards, with drawings from Scott Kirschner, Jeff A. Menges, Ron Spencer and Pete Venters.

23. What is the total casting cost for Battle of Wits?

From Quiz Magic Knowledge

Answer: 5

Having 'Battle of Wits' in play lets you win the game automatically if you have over 200 cards in your library during your upkeep.

24. What card is known as the Bone Crank?

From Quiz Older Magic

Answer: Icy Manipulator

This moniker stems from the Ice Age version of the card that depicted a strange machine made of bones. The original Alpha and later Mirrodin and 10th edition versions of the card depict various orb-like artifacts.

25. What set did Pikemen first appear in?

From Quiz Old School Magic

Answer: Dark

26. What is the casting cost for Cursed Monstrosity(odyssey)?

From Quiz 'Magic: The Gathering' Type 2

Answer: 4B

Cursed Monstrosity is a 4B creature with flying and it's power is 4, toughness is 3. Whenever it becomes the target of a spell or ability, sacrifice it unless you discard a land card from your hand.

27. Kamigawa made legendary permanents, particularly creatures, the focus of the block. Of the 163 legendary cards, one was printed with two different pictures for a good reason - which one?

From Quiz Fourteen Years is a Long Time

Answer: Brothers Yamazaki

Brothers Yamazaki is the only legendary permanent to not be limited to one copy in play but rather two. Correspondingly, it exists with two different images, each showing one of the brothers. If you happen to get two copies into play, each of them grows from a somewhat uninspiring 2/1 bushido creature for three mana to a 4/3 with bushido and haste, so you can immediately attack with both Brothers the turn you complete the pair.

28. The "Lorwyn 5" were the first five planeswalker cards printed. Each of the five represented a different color of Magic's color pie. Which walker represented White in the initial release?

From Quiz Let's Go Planeswalking - #1

Answer: Ajani Goldmane

White is the color with the most single-colored, recurring planeswalkers, but it was Ajani who came first. The other members of the Lorwyn 5 are Jace Beleren (Blue), Chandra Nalaar (Red), Garruk Wildspeaker (Green), and Liliana Vess (Black).

29. Almost every "Magic: The Gathering" card has a colour. Some have more than one, and some have none at all, but most have just one. Which of the five colours of "Magic: The Gathering" is associated with order, discipline, and unity?

From Quiz The Colours of "Magic: The Gathering"

Answer: White

White is the colour of purity and order. White is known for having angels and deeply religious creatures, devoted to their gods and causes. This does not make white "good", though. White can be dictatorial, and will harshly suppress heresy and dissent. Abilities often associated with white are Lifelink and Defender. White plays a slower, longer game than the other colours. It gains life easily, and has creatures and other methods explicitly designed to prevent enemies from attacking. White creatures are usually quite weak individually, but can be improved en masse to be scary. A classic white card is "Honor of the Pure", which gives all white creatures +1/+1. White usually stalls the game while building up a large, strong army, or to bring in powerful angels, and then attacks with large waves of creatures. White's weakness is that it may become too defensive, and lack any offence to finish the game.

30. Four Weirds in Magic: the Gathering have a phrase on them that is part of the text of a triggered ability. What is that?

From Quiz Night of the Living Weird

Answer: Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell

Only one of the three originally created Weirds had this phrase, but of the four that were created years afterwards, three of them had the phrase. Each of the four with this phrase has a different second half. Three of them have their own card name in it. Here they are: Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, Blistercoil Weird gets +1/+1 until end of turn. Untap it. Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, you may switch Fluxcharger's power and toughness until end of turn. Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, you may untap Gelectrode. Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell from your library, copy it. You may choose new targets for the copy.
