It depends on how you do it. With me I like randomizing the cards then rubber banding them into 15 card packs. that's tough to do with out a perfect divisible number otherwise if you just divvy out card each time to start then any number would work really.
Lost 1 game in 2 rounds of Best of 3 and One "Finals" round of Best of 5. This format has been severely fun both times I've played it, and I can't wait to make my cube some 700 cards and run 8-man draft with it.
The above deck wants at least 1 additional Forest, and cut Bottle Gnomes + Penumbra Spider, which re more defensive cards. The complete lack of regular removal is also very uncommon for a BGdeck.
I found that those two cards actually saved me in a few games where I couldn't get the deck going fast enough because of a bad draw or whatnot. I love Penumbra Spider, specifically, it's pretty fun when my friends forget that I get another creature when it dies.
Are the additions above good? And should I add these?
damnation and sorin markov aren't particularly aggressive either, so i don't think he was trying for b/g aggro.
I love this feedback I am getting. Thanks! I know it may be a bit much to ask, but if I post like one color/section of my cube at a time, would someone/multiple people be willing to rate the cards/tell me what should and shouldn't be there?
I see... like with the few "results" you've given me, the "unusual cards" would be the ones that most people don't play (i.e. the ones that shouldn't be in there), with the ones with Exclamation Points being the most unusual?
I definitely need more 1 and 2cc creatures, and a few more burn spells would be nice. Chain Lightning and Staggershock are things I'll be adding as soon as I find them... What else could be considered?
And I think 60 cards per color would be a good place for me to start. I remember being advised to have at least 50% creatures per color... so using that rough guideline, I need 11 more creatures (at least).
Kept in Goblin Arsonist, Gravedigger, Snap, Spell Pierce. I like those cards.
Some Lonely Cards I got and will throw in there for now:
@wtwlf, I haven't exactly gotten to the "balance every color" stage yet... I tried starting off with what I think is my weakest color (red) on the last post of page two, but no one seems to be interested in doing that. I.e., I'm not really cutting anything yet, because the cube isn't at a set number at the moment. There is a number I'm roughly shooting for (60 of each color?), but I'm nowhere near that point at the moment.
So you're just looking for straight additions? If so, I'd use eidolon's suggestions there.
Well, eidolon's suggestions are helpful, and a lot of my additions have come from that list. But I only have 16 red creatures in the cube as of right now, and although Eidolon's list will give me a list of the best red cards to get in there, the list might not have 14+ red creatures on it. :/ Which is where I was asking the community, "Ok, how do I balance my red section (i.e. add creatures that don't suck)?" I may have not been clear on that before.
