Quote from wtwlf123I find that the two color decks are better. Consistency is key, and we have larger mono-color sections and a very small gold section (and lots of artifacts). Those three points are a key recipie for making great 2-color decks in the cube.
If I had less artifacts, smaller mono-color sections, more gold cards, and more 3+ color fixing lands, the 3+ color decks would be stronger. I've designed my cube with that in mind. We prefer to run consistent 2-color decks rather than splashing a 3rd or 4th color into every deck.
Quote from mischiefMy cube plays similarly. Most of the time, I have 2-color decks, maybe a 3-color deck and that's how I want it to play out. I also have no vivids or tri-lands. Quite possibly, with a more aggro-ish cube, I dont think there is really time to cast Tooth and Nail or All Suns' Dawn, but I keep them in my cube so that I don't hinder those that want to build big mana decks.
Quote from wtwlf123I'm removing Into the Roil in favor of Condescend. I think that counter is too good not to play.

Quote from Donald_McDonaldVendilion Clique - I know blue is tight but this guy is just fantastic.
Quote from wtwlf123I know it's good, but I really don't have anything to cut for it. Man-o'-War and Willbender have both been too good, and Time Warp is great (even though it's strictly worse than Time Walk).
Fastbond was either super busted, or worthless. Unlike other ramp cards, you never know what kind of value you'll get out of Fastbond. With cards like Dark Ritual and Black Lotus, I always know what kind of support I'll get. If you open a 2-land hand, Fastbond is pretty bad. Also, I don't run one card that makes Fastbond really broken, and that's Crucible of Worlds. So I can't infinitely chain Strip Mines and stuff (like you can with Crucible).
I like Fastbond... jut don't know what to cut for it.
Quote from wtwlf123
That's what I figured about Fastbond, which is why I cut it. It's too inconsistent.
Quote from wtwlf123You may want to recount those morph creatures, I have at least 1-2 in each color. Not just 2 for the whole cube.
