A very brief overview...
Cube is a format that I have been interested in for quite some time, and I have stalked this board for a good portion of that time. Here is v1 of my cube that is sure to change....and change a lot. I don’t really have a theme other than this is a semi-budget cube in that I will never use any pieces of power or, most likely, the original duals. However, most other options will be considered. Let me know what you think. You will see a lot of the cube staples in my build, but you will also see some “strange” cards that made the initial list as they are cards that I just like to play with!

You have written "1x Enchantment" in the red section instead of a regular headline.
The number of cards in ,any sections does not match the one in your description.
You are running many cards with strictly better alternatives.
There are a lot of narrow cards in this cube.
Classifying cards as played instead of as printed is better for the balancing.
The gold section is just massive, considering that you are exclusively playing with 2 players. This should make you reconsider which decks you want to support as well and how different the matches are going to play out (also keeping your preferred card distribution method in mind).
My first impression is that a high number of the older staples are missing.
First, thank you for the suggestions. I know I am missing a lot of cube staples, especially the older ones, but I am building out of what I have available to me. Eventually I will get there, so for now, I can only make notes on the switches I will eventually implement!
I am really intrigued by switching out some of my cards for "strictly better" versions. I will work on this first!
Is the gold balance really that out of whack? We like to play with gold cards, but if you think it is really unbalanced, it's definitely something that I will adjust.
