Quote from Fredo »Thanks for the write-up. Most of my favorites are in there. What an exceptional set, again.
Two potential role players you didn't mention:
Bastion of Remembrance: looks like a solid inclusion for cubes supporting aristocrats. Provides a resilient aristocrats effect and still offers a body.
Yorion, Sky Nomad: companion ability is flavor text, but should be solid to back-breaking in a blink deck.
Quote from en fisk »Thank for the review as always. For me though it was a very disappointing set. Don't like the companion mechanic, mutate or just the flavor of the cards in general. The first set in a long time where I probably wont be adding any cards (450 cube).
Quote from Patrunkenphat7 »
I get that the argument is that the combination of all these things give it great flexility that makes it worthy of Cube consideration, but when someone drafts 25-29 playable cards, I don't see how the flexibility of this card edges it into the deck.

@rantipole: I think I'd lean towards cutting one of the Nissas since there's some redundancy there and the new Vivien is a fresh and different set of abilities.
