Beatdown is a box set that was released in October 2000.


The name was derived from a slang word that was used at the time. Player's often said the were "applying a beatdown", when creatures were attacking and dealing lots of damage to an opponent. [1] [2] [3] A "Beatdown deck" is essentially a “weenie” deck full of creatures that cost between one and four mana. [4]
