Well, about a year and a half ago is when I was I decided to get a MG15DFX. Figuring I would get an awesome small marshall amp, and great metal sound. Loved it for the first 3 months, and slowly but surely began to grow tired of it, and disliked the tone more and more. Now I hardly like it at all, and wish to trade it in for a used, better small amp.

Any suggestions? I would like a nice metal tone, but also have a little variety. I would also like to keep it at 15W.

roland cube 15x. small, cheap, 15 watts, and will get you a better metal tone than that mg. i personally have a cube 20x and i love the metal tone i can get out of it.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

I got an MG30DFX, but I use pedals for effects. Its got a good clean channel to run them on, so I like it. (braces for usual MG flaming)

Roland makes killer practice amps. Their mini-cubes are armed to the teeth with crunk. Even the new smaller Spider III rock, but not nearly as much as the roland's. The spider has more effects I think, but the Roland sounds better maxed out.

I'll go with the Roland (well, I did) unless you want to pay a good bit more for a small valve amp.

Peavey Vypyr. Great amp, especially for metal, but its also very versatile.

Any of the Roland Cubes, IMHO the 20 or 30X have overall better sound than the 15 but depending on your budget the 15 isn't too shabby. The Vox VT15 can be had if you look around $140 or so and the Peavy Vyprs in 15 or 30. Last but not least are the Fender FM DSP's and Vibro Champ XD.
You really have to go listen to them and you make the choice. All of then are capable of doing what you need. You have to decide.
