Quote from calibrettoWell our cube is pretty much a 50/50 split between he and I as far as decision making is concerned. He gives me a little room and I give him a little room. I really can't explain his problem with Bloodghast. When I asked him what he thought of it he told me that he took it out of Vampires for underperforming and that he thinks it's bad. He also said he'd rather have any of our current black 2-drops over Bloodghast. I would personally like to try it in place of Black Knight.

I'm switching out Beacon of Destruction for Chain Lightning. Now, I also want to fit in Arc Lightning. What do you suggest I cut? I'd prefer to cut a spell rather than a creature and I'd like to retain Seal of Fire. Ideas?
Quote from calibrettoI'd go for either Genju of the Spires or Sneak Attack. Both cards failed to perform for us. Arc Lightning has been excellent.
Quote from Salmo »It's just about reasonable expectations.
Quote from Donald_McDonaldChain Lightning is obviously awesome but I wouldn't try too hard to get in Arc Lightning, it either needs to cost 1 less or be an instant. Still missing Chandra Ablaze however...
Quote from calibrettoI would. It can often be three for one card advantage and that's just ridiculous. More often than not it takes out two guys and even then it's still excellent. Arc Lightning should be a cube staple imo.
Quote from GoodkingShock a creature and ping for one is still good, because it offers you the choice to perform other actions. And besides, you're now level on cards and up one threat and one twentieth of someone's life total.

just tried out WeaponX (bdi parfait) decklist for an online tournament. went undefeated even though I never used it before. this deck is real. O.o
Quote from hurlman81 Thanks for all your help on this everyone, especially WeaponX. I think he may be one of the more under appreciated brewers in the community.
Quote from wtwlf123I don't like Volcanic Fallout. Arc Lightning only hits targets I want it to, and I can kill 3 toughness creatures with it. I'm not looking for a burn spell that kills my own aggro creatures. I have better sweepers I can use to fill Fallout's role instead. Arc Lightning also only has 1 red mana in its cost.
And yes, Fire off of Fire // Ice can 2-for-1 as well, but only against 2 1/1 creatures. I can kill a Savannah Lions and a Knight of Meadowgrain on my turn 3 with Arc Lightning, which is a nice thing to do against a common start for the white player. Especially when I want to be able to swing with both my 1 and 2 drops on T3 (which I do).
Quote from rantipoleI also want to run Rolling Thunder, so other than Sneak Attack, I think the cut for it is Genju of the Spires. Comments? Oh, and please let's not reopen the Rolling Thunder vs. Fireball debate.
