Changes nothing - it already had that identity and as soon as I change it to a Land, it gets thrown to lands. Ah, but if it is in lands already, I can change the category to green to make it work. If I do it in the other order, changing it to a land changes the colour category to 'land' automatically.
Good to hear that it worked out. I remember I had some similar issues before I realised the difference between type, colour and colour category.
my main issue is that I cannot label in-colour cards as lands because all lands get organised to colourless.
How do you mean? You can put moneky village in green.
Yeah and I have - and I just tested. If I make its type 'Land', it gets organized under all the other lands. I could not find a better sorting method to do this than the default 'Color Category + Types-Multicolor'.
Colour category: Green
Colour just changes the section within colour category. For instance Bloobraid Elf would have
Type: Creature - Elf Berserker
Colour: Red and green (result in Gruul section)
Colour category: Multicolored
I have also switched to CubeCobra. For me the downtime and attacks on the CubeTutor website forced the change for me.
A future I prefer on tutor is that it's much easier to filter by tags. I usually look at CubeTutor when it comes to the average list each year. Doing a comparison on Cobra is also nice.
Perhaps the tags could be shortened for Cobra this year? Examples:
Tag name - Colour
30 - Red
29 - Red
28 - Orange
27 - Orange
26 - Yellow
25 - Yellow
Tag name - Colour
30-29 - Red
28-27 - Orange
26-25 - Yellow
I often struggle to remember which colours are connected to each tag. Perhaps they could be ordered according to the colours of the rainbow? When I was a kid in Norway, we learned that the colours could be abbreviated to ROGGBIF, to help remember the order of colours.
As to how solved the format is, I don't know. I think if you take the top 360 cards from the average list, you'd end up with a pretty "solved" format as far as archetypes and playability. The truth of the matter is that cube (of all shapes and sizes) is much more complicated than that, though. Your group might have pet cards or archetypes you love. You may want to try out an archetype that's maybe not as popular like say UB Ninjas or Persist Combo.
I have tried the top 180, which ended with way to much removal and green becoming the worst colour. I'm not sure, but I might have tried the top 360 before that. I suspect that the top 360 would also ende up with to much removal, as those slots seem more solved than creatures and archetypes.
