Quote from RedfalconAll I could see at a glance is that you are playing Gaea's Skyfolk, which never makes the cut in the finished decks. I would replace it with Leafdrake Roost. It's actually quite good.
Quote from DarkmindtoneAnybody seen the new Hellkite Overlord card yet?
Creature - Dragon
Flying, trample, haste
:symr:: Hellkite Overlord gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
:symb::symg:: Regenerate Hellkite Overlord.
I'm pretty sure that will be playable in Cube once it's released. It's easily comparable to Akroma, Rorix, etc in that it's a huge, hasted creature. It's essentially immune to black and red removal like Akroma, and Firebreathing and Regeneration seem like icing on the cake.
Quote from SheedThere're better reanimation targets to be had.
Quote from SheedFair points. I usually like to be able to hardcast the creatures as well, which is why I made the point of saying that if you're looking for tri-color cards, this is your guy, but if your cube is mana-fixing light, skip it for Akroma or something else.
However, this cube has a good amount of fixing in green, so Overlord looks much better here than in many.
Quote from misterorangeHowever, I disagree strongly with the removal of Jitte and Vedalken Shackles. While we don't have Shackles in the cube (for reasons I can't recall), I do know the power and unfun-ness of an active Jitte going crazy. That's why I've tried to include as many answers to these cards as possible in each color (particularly artifacts such as Sol Ring and troublesome lands like Library of Alexandria).
That's why I've made an effort for more artifact destruction in my cube (Keldon Vandals) and I try to sort of watch the trends of my cube drafts. What is the latest 'defacto' best card/deck? RecSur is always popular and powerful, and so is blue/x control. The more powerful the blue and enchantment hosers are, the less defacto those become.
