Quote from Patrunkenphat7 »My first thought is that this gets better in smaller Cubes where you can reliably draft Armageddon and Ravages. As it stands I think it’s pretty tough to build a deck that meets the companion criteria in my Cube. I will say that I hate that the mechanic only requires the deckbuilding restriction for the starting deck, because you could potentially board in a bunch of 3-4 drops in SB games...
Like LucidVision said, it’s an interesting card to consider without being used as companion.

Quote from Salmo »It's just about reasonable expectations.
Quote from Marl Karx »I think there is a risk that the novelty of companion exaggerates this guy's Cubeability as a creature in your maindeck. Obviously, if it is in your Cube it will make some decks but if you take away the companion ability, would this still be a Cubeable creature?
Since it is largely speculative right now as to the how onerous the companion condition will prove to be (and how often it will even be feasible), I think a little reservation is called for.
