Lifegain matters is always going to be an archetype that I abstain from adding to cube, no matter how much support it gets. It is intrinsically much better against certain decks where gaining life in itself is a reward (i.e aggressive strategies). I don't like to have a match up that is so polarizing that it feels hopeless.
Even outside of a dedicated lifegain shell Silversmote Ghoul might honestly be a strong card as it's above rate if you can get it back once, which isn't overly difficult if you make minor deckbuilding considerations.
dude wtf, watcher of the spheres is super efficient??? what a bear holy moly.
man, one problem with this set is that i feel like i need to completely disassemble my cube and start again. there's just so many archetypes that work now, it's crazy.
The cube may not be the most cohesive thing ever but I definitely disagree that there are "no clear archetypes". Have you tried u/w flicker?
I heard that there is Amaz's Peasant Cube on Magic online atm has anyone checked it out?
