Quote from Talore »Just got to say, you've definitely earned distinction as an MTGS hero
Quote from Stardust »Because he's the hero MTGS deserves, and the one it needs right now. So we'll global him. Because he can take it. Because he's not just our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. An expired rascal.
Quote from LuckNorris »ExpiredRascals you sir are a god-like hero.
Quote from Lanxal »ER is a masterful god who cannot be beaten in any endeavour.
Quote from votan »:ER:, you suck as a hero
Quote from kcolloranFrom the cutting the number of pro tours, to adding mythics, to adding lands to packs, to the m10 rules changes, to the continue pushing of aggro and creatures in particular, to the way they handle prereleases, to infect, to this, they've consistently made decisions that our disappointing. If the base game wasn't so damned fun I would quit. The reason we whine about so many decisions is that so many of them are bad.
So you're right that it isn't the end of the world. Just another disappointing thing in recent magic. It's the reason I mostly play cube and old set limited on magic-league.
Quote from bwianI don't think most of us will be able to evaluate suggestions for your cube very well, but if the odd rules are working for your playgroup, that's cool.
In your primer you suggested that "flashy cards" would receive less slots than other cards, and I got confused for a bit until I looked at your list, thinking you were doing some sort of system where you duplicated simple cards (like aggro knights or mana elves, removal, etc.). Immediately looking at white though, I noticed Glimmerpoint Stag, which clearly violates the "exile/battlefield" rule you have imposed. You might want to check your list for the newer cards again.
Quote from eidolon232
Another thing that I really don't like about big cubes is the difference in powerlevel between the cards: In a small cube, cards like Sensei's Divining Top, Skullclamp + Winter Orb are fairer, because you also have such bombs in your deck, while they are just broken if the average artifact is on the Library of Leng level.
Quote from quitequieterin my opinion, "unfun" effects are really just effects a player doesn't understand how to use or how to beat. i'd rather understand (and play with others who understand) how to use and beat powerful effects than simplify the cube so no one has to.
Quote from rantipoleFor all I know, you are Kai Budde and for all you know I'm John Finkel. It doesn't matter. What matters is your logical argument for or against the card in question.
Quote from eidolon232You are right, but that doesn't change the numbers too drastically. I think that it would be a lot easier to go through your cube, if you would separate spells and creatures and add some empty lines between the different mana costs, since atm it is just a big block.
Quote from wtwlf123That card's so insane that it needs reminder text on it that lets you know you can kick your opponent right in the junk when it resolves.
Quote from NofWhen I see Healing Salve, I'm often like "Oh girl, I wish I could turn every card into this." Thanks they removed the gain life part, otherwise this would have been broken.
Quote from quitequieteroblation seems really bad, but 890 is a lot of cards.
