    Awesome news! Thanks Spike Rogue and Allred for doing this.

    I think the tribids should count as three color, not color of casting cost. I also think that lands that require a color to do their thing (Faerie Conclave for example) should count as a card of that color.

    I'm kinda neutral on the P1P1 vs. most powerful/favorite criteria. As long as the criteria is spelled out, I think I'll be able to live with whatever the consensus is.

    I strongly think the Un-cards and such should be kept separate.


    All of this, seconded.

    Seriously, though, thanks, Spike Rogue!

    I like Purphoros quite a bit. He doesn't see a ton of play, but when he does make the final 40 he's very powerful in those decks.

    I'm not religious at all, which is often kind of awkward living in Tennessee (and working for a bank). It's not uncommon for religion to come up in conversation in this area because most people just assume that you share their same beliefs. I don't normally draw attention to my beliefs (or lack thereof), though, unless it seems necessary for some reason. I try to live by a single mantra: don't be a dick. If you can just be a generally good person, you'll be just fine in life, no matter what your religion is.

    @Spike Rogue: We actually went right at the beginning of spring. It was pretty chilly on the Maid and the ice was still built up at the bottom of the falls. I recommend it as a vacation spot very highly. I'd also recommend going on into Canada and seeing the falls from that side.

    @cuttups: Sweet playlist as well. Mine started out as just something to jam while I played MTGO, hence the name. It has become my main playlist for anytime I need music in the background.

    @steve_man: Thanks for that detailed write-up. I really enjoy the discussion this thread creates about individual cards, but honestly, more than that, I enjoy getting to know my fellow posters with the bonus questions.

    BBE is probably the best cascade creature out there. It's just such a value monster.

    As far as waterfalls, my wife and I vacationed last year at Niagara Falls. It was so much more awesome in person than what you see in pictures or film. Other than that obvious answer, we've recently started trying to get into hiking. We live in East Tennessee, so the Smokey Mountains are close and filled with trails for hikers of all skill levels. A couple of weeks ago we hiked a 1.5 mile trail that ends at a waterfall called Grotto Falls. It was pretty cool because the trail actually went behind the falls.

    I like Vapors more than Gearhulk, and I like both more than Persecutor.


    100% this. If the Gearhulk were one mana cheaper, it might beat out Vapors, but as is, I think this is a good ranking.

    You should do what works best for your cube and your cube group. I'm including a partial Signet/Talisman cycle in my low power list just to see how they play out. It won't be a full 10-card cycle, but a partial cycle paired with some generic rocks to fill out the need of the cube. As we draft I can make cuts where I see they fit based on play. If your group is loving the Borderposts and they're working for you, then you should definitely go that route.

    For the record, I don't think artifact mana of any kind hurts green at all as far as being a ramp color. IMO, it gives you the option of building the green ramp deck or including some ramp in your non-green control and midrange decks.

    It's time has passed in most powered lists, but it's still pretty good in peasant. I also happily play it in my low power list. It's not a bad card, it's just outclassed by more powerful cards since Planar Chaos.

    As far as music goes, I'm not very musical. Like Salmo, though, I do love music and keep a very large Spotify playlist that I update pretty regularly. It's mostly metal/rock/punk, but if you want to check it out and follow, here's the link. This is what I jam when we cube or I'm playing MTGO.

    The Borderposts would be more appealing to me with an XY casting cost and no ETB tapped clause. As is, I think wtwlf basically nailed it.
