Hey guys. I was talking a while ago to the people on the cube forum about having a regular thread about what updates people were doing to their commander cubes and they suggested that it might fit better over here and since commander legends spoiler season is upon is, I thought it was a good time to try it out. So, 2 things:
1. What are you guys with cubes thinking of the new cards? Are there any swaps you're looking to make?
2. Is this a thread that commander cube enthusiasts would be interested in seeing during previews for new sets?
Seems like an odd place for Commander Cube discussion. The Cube section is for the limited format, which should/does include variants. The Cube Reddit is probably the most ideal place to talk about Commander Cube though, but I personally like using MTGSalvation to discuss MTG over Reddit, so I understand if that isn't your cup of tea either.
Commander Legends is a pretty awesome set. I personally won't be using a whole lot from it in my Cube though - even my Commander Module. I think the powerlevel of my Cube is probably just too high to really support a lot of the stuff in Commander Legends. That being said, there are lots of things I like and I may need to reevaluate my Commander Module a bit, or finally commit to making a second module.
Rootweaver Druid Really big fan of this card, I don't play my Commander Cube 1v1, it is always played Multiplayer, and this card seems fun for the lands decks
Jeweled Lotus A nice little bit of support for mono-colored commanders to get things out a bit faster, occasionally helpful for other decks as well. Not super big on this card as I think it is fairly underwhelming, but definitely want to see how it goes
Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools Planeswalkers that work well in Stax are always cards that tickle my fancy. I think on early casting, this card can get some good mileage in
Opposition Agent I know people are hyped on this for normal Cube, but I think there just isn't enough critical mass for me to be as excited about it, hopefully in a multiplayer setting those odds of getting it off are something that I am happy with
Akroma, Vision of Ixidor This card seems awesome! Need to crunch some numbers or decide if it is something I want to design around in a second module
Sakashima of a Thousand Faces I kind of want to add this to my primary Commander Module for some sweet play with Vial Smasher the Fierce, but not feeling like there is much else to partner with atm, I think if I can find a few more options, it will be added to the primary module
Averna, the Chaos Bloom Not sure I have enough support for this to be able to keep up with most of the Commanders in a higher power module, but something I want to design around a bit
Liesa, Shroud of Dusk Not much initial support, may try in a lower power module where I can shape her to be solid with plenty of support
