Quote from kcolloran »Is Chandra Ablaze really cube worthy? She seems pretty jank to me. Let me know how that works.
Quote from kcolloran »I've also found Ob Nixilis is pretty underwhelming. Of course I don't run fetches, so that hurts, but his complete lack of evasion hurts. His stock has been steadily falling in my cube.
Quote from kcolloran »Edit: I also love Body Double and Draining Whelk. I can't imagine cutting either of those.
Quote from calibrettoAll three of the cards you're adding have been really good for us. The only card you're taking out that I'd miss is Flameblast Dragon. He can be an absolute house at times and I've seen him win quite a few games since his inclusion in our cube. He's not a cube staple, but he's pretty good. Still, there are plenty of red cards that should make the cut before him.
Quote from rantipoleI haven't seen him in action yet, but almost everyone else on this forum thinks he's pretty great. He doesn't necessarily need to enter the red zone to do a ton of damage, and most of the time an opponent can only hold off 9 or more points of power for so long.
Quote from rantipoleBody Double is cool and it might come back in. However, I think Blue has lots of good options in the 5+ mana range, and Body Double is not at the top of the heap. I was torn between cutting it or Teferi.
Quote from rantipoleI'll miss Flameblast Dragon, too. However, he seemed like the best cut to make for Hellspark. I want to lower the curve in red and Flameblast was the weakest of the expensive cards in my red section. I certainly was not cutting Crater Hellion or Hellkite Charger.

Quote from TappingStones »2 player drafting is known as "winston draft" I'll let you do some research on what that is.
Quote from rantipoleI certainly was not cutting Crater Hellion or Hellkite Charger.
Quote from wtwlf123Ob Nix doesn't need evasion. His ability kills players directly, and he's in a color with a plethora of removal. He's really good.
Quote from rantipoleAdditionally, I'd like to double-sleeve my cube. I guess I'll need KMC Perfect Fits and then some other type sleeves. Suggestions? Also, where is the best place online to buy about 1400 sleeves?
Quote from rantipole In a slightly controversial move, I've added all five of the dual man-lands.
Quote from wtwlf123
I don't think it's controversial at all. They're all good. But when I classified them as gold cards, not all of them are good enough to make the cut. In fact, some are pretty far from cubeworthy as gold cards. And as lands, I didn't have any cycles I wanted to remove for them either... nor did I want to run an uneven amount of fixing (because it's not a full cycle of 10). Gold made the most sense for me, and some of 'em aren't good enough when evaluated as gold cards.
Quote from Magic Online »What is fun? Whatever you want it to be!
Quote from Donald_McDonaldEven classifying them as lands I did not find all of them good enough to make the cut but if I had just 1 more slot for G/W they all would have made it. They're all certainly cubeworthy, just depends on the size and how you classify them.
Quote from wtwlf123Agreed. I think the RG one would've made the cut if gold was expanded by 2 slots. Perhaps 3 slots for the BR one, and like 10 more slots for the WG one. WG is loaded with better stuff.
Quote from calibrettoWe're running six per color combo and the RG one made our list. The WG is decent, but not good enough, imo. It desperately needs trample. And I don't think I'd run the BR one at all. It seems way too mana intensive in a color pair that's mostly aggro and needs that mana up for burn/removal. It might be nice to have in the late game when your BR aggro deck has slowed down, but a BR aggro deck should never see the late game anyway. There are plenty of cards I'd include over that one.

Quote from rantipoleThanks! Now, if I want to do double sleeves, I know I need KMC perfect fits for the inner sleeve. Is there a certain outer sleeve that fits over that?
Quote from wtwlf123KMC Perfect fit sleeves are the inner layer, and the regular KMC sleeves are the outer layer.
They fit better sticking to the same brand, and the regular KMC sleeves are really nice anyways.
Quote from Darklich528I don't understand the man-lands. U/W gets Vigilance and Flying and a decent body. U/B is unblockable! Would it be so hard to at least add First Strike to the R/B one so it doesn't die horribly if the opponent has anything at all to block with? Would the G/W one have been too strong with Reach and Lifelink? The R/G one needs Trample so badly.
I guess not all lands are created equally. =(
