That's a choice you'd get to make in deckbuilding. I mean a 4/4 for 6 isn't really all that amazing so to have 4 in your deck might just bog your draws down and make you lose to aggression.
It just seems like a cool way to give the natural ramp of green an extra boost and not let it fall off late game.
Actually, aurochs is really really good. A six mana 4/4 is not very good, but it also draws you options for you to do on your next couple turns. It is incredibly powerful. Squardron Hawk is even better, since you can cast it most of the time.
Ima build a new cube (right now we play what I like to call the crapcube, a bunch of BAD commons , uncommons and junk rares from old drafts, all stupidly altered and whatnot) in between the end of this year and 2013. Im trying to focus on building it fast , and a very on-colour one. I kinda figured I want to go for a small size (180, 4 players mostly), and I'm pretty sure red is gonna be mostly burn/aggro fast creatures. Im kinda tempted on black for going only removal and somewhat re-usable creatures, as well as green only creatures + pump. But i dont know what to do with blue and white. ¿Counter fest? ¿Army style?
Keep in mind Im only gonna use new modern cards and ONLY cards in spanish (certain products such as archenemy or some duel decks were not released in spanish. No new artwork brainstorm for me )
Don´t worry, brainstorm is not that good
So here are my suggestions:
For 4 players, you really want a 360 cube, since if you always draft it all it will get boring quickly
Don´t keep the colors linear, that gets pretty boring as well
I find it really funny that signets and bouncelands are considered mistakes when they made ravnica limited awesome and didn't even impact constructed that much apart from in control/tron decks. They tried "correcting" these "mistakes" in alara with obelisks and borderposts which were annoyingly slow, and it ended up that you had just as terrible mana in a shard as you had when you were 5-colour. And neither had any impact on constructed.
Actually,the signets dominated RAV CHK Standard and RAV TSP as well. Plus it isnt cool making lands some of the best cards in the set
I have both of them in, because good 2 drops to get rebel fetched, but I don't like hardcasting either of them. Best of the two is the cat though.
In my cube, some of the more populars are WW(with me drafting it 90% of the time), mono R, Ux control, B/Ux tempo and RG aggro are the most popular archetypes
EDI:30 multicolor cards for 270 is rly low
I've played, and "had a word with" all of those cards. I still think that Pridemage is better - admittedly it's close.
Let's move on, hey?
Roustabout is similar to a very bad version of Darkthicket Wolf, but hopefully we'll get some one drop that can have 2 power off of the mechanic
I don't think we will because it would have to a base 1/1, since having an 1/0 would make it a little dumb since you always have to use the ability and it might be too good if you have it a 1/1 (at common at least). But a RB 2/2 with it is a possiblility(but would it be good enough?).
