    I'm not a fan of the new(er) frame, but I really like the new formatting for these types of spells. I don't know that it'd be worth it to change from a foil Lorwyn/MM1 to this new one, but if I ended up with a new foil, I'd probably swap it out.

    If those are your options, then I think Time Spiral is a fine cut.

    Agreed. It's very nice of you to step up, wildice. Thank you, again, for taking this on. It's no small task.

    I missed the part where I said that I was running the project. I dont agree that it was a safe assumption at all. It took a whole 2 hours for someone to volunteer who has the time. Man we just barely made it didnt we....Anyhow thank you wildice.


    Actually it took two weeks, but who's counting? You started the thread. You suggested starting it in May. You initially mentioned zero things about not having time to run the project. Why would that not be a safe assumption? No one stepped up until two weeks later when you actually came right out and said that you weren't going to run it. But whatever. Doesn't matter. Someone did step up and I'm glad they did.

    Thank you, wildice, for taking the time to do this project.

    I don't appreciate how you put that.

    First off, I didn't bring any idea to the table. The plan to do this project again this year was set into motion last year. I'm contributing what I can by getting the ball rolling (setting mutually agreed upon rules for a framework, establishing when we start, and using this thread to find someone who has the time to make the threads for this project).

    My May is extremely busy. I don't have the time to create the threads SilentEdge took care of last year (not to mention I don't know how to do some of the formatting the results threads require). If someone could step up to do this we would all be very grateful.


    I didn't mean to offend, so I apologize if I did, but I think the point is a fair one. You created the thread and got the ball rolling, so it's a safe assumption to think that you were going to be the one that was running the project in Silent Edge's absence this year. Obviously you can't and that's totally cool, but I think the thread was a little misleading. Getting the ball rolling is one thing, but if no one is interested in keeping the project moving in May, then the project just won't happen. It will sit stale just like the Top 10 project from a couple months ago has done since ColbyCube stopped posting so much.

    I hope someone does pick it up and we get to do this project again this year. We're five days out from May, though, and no one has stepped up yet. I'm hopeful, but realistic.

    We ran Birthing Pod at this size pretty much since New Phyrexia was released and it basically did nothing of note during that time. I was glad to see it go when we finally cut it. It seems like a fairly easy build around card that slides right into a value rock deck or something, but I found it very hard to put together the value deck that it needs to be successful.

    Condemn seems like an odd addition as well. Not being able to control when you kill their creature or even really control which creature you can target is a big negative for me on this card. I'd probably add it in just for redundancy at larger size (like 720 or so), but I don't think it's 540 material.

    I'm interested in hearing your results on Whip of Erebos. I've always kind of found it interesting and it's always just been chilling in the binder. Did The Abyss just not work out or was it the only 4cc black card near the chopping block? We've had a couple of drafts with The Abyss present and it's been fine. I actually won one of them with a mono black Pox/Stax aggro deck that ran The Abyss.

    I have a few bad alters in my cube, but I don't consider any of them to be "pimp". They were just convenient at the time. I don't think that alter is very good at all. The name and card type aren't smooth. The explosion looks ok, but what's with that gray thing at the bottom? It's definitely better than what I could personally do, but it doesn't hold a candle to any of the alters done by people like Klug or CardKitty. The best Vindicate IMO (not considering altered versions, of course) is a pack foil from Apocalypse. If I had to choose between that alter or the older promo, I'd go with the promo and make a note in my spreadsheet that it's pimped, but not the preferred version.

    - Is someone (or a group of someones) interesting in creating the voting/results threads? I would volunteer, but I'm not going to have the time in May.


    So you brought this idea to the table only to say that you don't have time to be the show runner? How does voting start in one week if no one signs up to run the project?
