1The Storm by The Gatherin

Did you know that American Magic: The Gathering Hall of Famer Patrick Chapin is also a rap artist? 

Back in 2011, Chapin and Bill Boulden (a.k.a. Spruke) formed a partnership called The Gatherin, and launched a rap album loaded with songs about Magic, and the best one is called The Storm, which highlights Chapin's memorable 2007 Magic World Championship finals match against a fellow MTG Hall of Famer Gabriel Nasiff. The Storm made it to the top of this list for having the catchiest hook, and intense verses that only a true Magic expert could spit. Chapin raps about the Dragonstorm deck he used against Nasiff, and how their game went. Although Chapin didn't end up winning the World Championship trophy, this song eternalized that spectacular match. Watch the rap video for The Storm below: 


Hottest bars: 

Never go against Gaby

In a game of "who's most lucky"

Up two-one after game three,

He mulls to four, insanity

Seemed hopeless for the Frenchie

Developed our mana, when we

Brace for the storm to come, he

Plays Lotus, clocks on three

Two turns before I know he's Going off, suspend Bolt, geeze

Gab knows its time and so he's

Faced to the storm says "go, please"

Time to test my expertise

Rift Bolt, Tarfire, you know, keys

Rite of Flame, Grapeshot copies

Five copies Ignite Memories

Didn't know his cards In the short run

They turned out Five, two, and one

With only nine life Gab looked done

If he hits Ignite Memories

I've won On top of that He had to hit Grapeshot

No more than three Times, not a great spot

This was match that We never forgot"


If you enjoyed The Gatherin's rap song, you may also want to check out their Jace the Mind Sculptor rap: 

Hottest bars: 

"Tried to tell everybody alive

Buy Jace while he's still twenty-five

Fateseal, Brainstorm, Unsummon guys

Ultimate they never survive

I've been putting protective cases

on hundreds since they had Jace-faces

Four abilities cover all bases

truth is every card game has aces"


I'm sure some of you would disagree with how I ranked these MTG rap videos, so feel free to discuss which MTG rap videos you love best in the comments section below.

Hopefully, we'll see more rap songs with MTG references, and with game's rise of popularity over the years, I'm sure we will get some that will probably make me update this list. Let me know on my Twitter if you discover a new MTG rap song worth including in this list.
