*** Book of Bad Latin: ''Libris Mortis''. Despite the fact that a sidebar in the book says the title is meant to be "From the Books of Dead", which is what the title actually means.[[labelnote: Most people assume it's supposed to mean ''Book of the Dead'' and gets it wrong -- that would be ''Liber Mortis''. On these grounds, much of the community calls it the "Book of Bad Latin". However, [[AllThereInTheManual if you read the book's introduction]], it turns out it's actually intended to mean ''From The Books of the Dead'' -- for which it is actually quite correct. Most Latin speakers would more naturally tend to include the word ''ex'' ("from"), but the ablative form ''libris'' implies that just fine, and the preposition is unnecessary.[[/labelnote]]

*** It's Cold Outside: Frostburn, a book focusing on arctic/tundra settings.
*** It's Wet Outside: Stormwrack, a book focusing on sailing/nautical settings.
*** It's Crowded Outside: Cityscape, a book focusing on urban settings.
*** It's Not Outside: Dungeonscape, a book focusing on... well, you can probably figure it out.
*** Book of Mild Dimness: Book of Vile Darkness, so nicknamed for its often laughably over-the-top borderline-cartoonish take on evil.
*** Book of Erroneous Design: Book of Exalted Deeds, due to the {{Game Breaker}}s in that book.
*** Book of Weaboo Fightan Magic: The Tome of Battle/Book of Nine Swords, named so because of its attempts to solve the LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards problem, with classes that had spell-like combat abilities. Used both as a pejorative by those who dislike it [[InsultBackfire and a lovable nickname by those who like it.]]

*** [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=226749 Delver]], which is a tempo deck revolving around the card Delver of Secrets and a large number of instants and sorceries. The general plan is to play a Delver of secrets early, flip it into an efficient flying beater, and then continually attack the opponent while using counters and burn to back it up and disrupt the opponent.
