    Has anyone here tried out the new Ultimate Guard Katana sleeves?


    I haven't even been able to get a single pack to sleeve a random deck in order to test them. My LGS can't keep them in stock. I do have a friend who ordered some online. He let me check them out and shuffle them when he got them, so I can vouch for the look and the shuffle feel on a small sample size. Just based on that, assuming you could get them for a decent price and there aren't any quality issues between cases when buying that many, it seems like a good sleeve option.
    Yeah, the only sleeves that my LGS has managed to keep in stock are the fully transparent ones, which for various reasons aren't really appropriate sleeves for a cube.

    I don't think this is nearly good enough for cube. As noted by LucidVision, I'd be excited if this was a Duress or Thoughtseize (although then I'd think it would be a bit strong), but it's too inconsistent for cube, and its body isn't enough for it to unseat anything else at 1.

    I also don't think Cabal Therapy is good enough for cube, but this is definitely not Cabal Therapy.

    Also been good here. Haven't seen it in an opposition shell, but it's been great in tokens and tempo. I did get to take it for a spin with a UW Superfriends control deck a couple weeks back where it was pretty good due to having multiple Gideons to either charge him faster or protect him.

    I’ve finally hit the point where I need to resleeve my cube (it’s frankly overdue, but I was attached to the old-quality KMC Hypers). Has anyone here tried out the new Ultimate Guard Katana sleeves? I’ve heard good things from players who’ve sleeves Constructed decks with them, but given their higher price-point ($12/pack) and relative difficulty finding them in colors other than transparent and white near me, I was curious if anyone’s had experience using them for cube. I may take the plunge if no one’s tried them, and will report back if that’s the case.

    EDIT: This also assumes that I can find them at anywhere near list price. Looks like they’re out of stock or marked up to double MARP right now depending on where you look, since they’ve just been released. The Professor’s review of them compares them to golden-age KMC Hypers, though, so that’s encouraging!

    Mild unsurprising updates for RNA:

    Black:
    Tormented Hero -> Gutterbones
    Mardu Strike Leader -> Spawn of Mayhem

    Red:
    Collective Defiance -> Light Up the Stage

    Green:
    Verdurous Gearhulk -> Biogenic Ooze

    Multicolor:
    Reflector Mage -> Dovin, Grand Arbiter

    I'd previously been considering adding Thrash//Threat over Bloodbraid Elf, but decided against it for now.

    EDIT: I'm intrigued by Hydroid Krasis based on discussion in the SCD for it, but I don't really want to pick that card up at its current price point since I'm not that excited about it.

    That's really weird, because I was positive there was a thread for this already, but I don't see it now. Slant

    But no, I don't think this card is very good.
    I wanted to follow up to address your confusion here.

    Due to a requirement to comply with EU privacy laws, EU users had to opt into not being deleted. The user who created the original Mesemerizing Benthid thread did not opt into this, so his posts and threads were deleted, and took the discussion with it. I can try to restore the discussion sans the original post and merge this one with that if people would like.
    I just shot you instructions (log out and back in). If you have any other questions, I'd be happy to answer them, with the caveat that some stuff is still getting sorted so my answer may be "I'll get back to you".

    Lol, this happened to me as well. Do you know perhaps how I can get my account name back?

    I forgot that I also still have Kalonian Hydra in the cube, and I'm starting to think that's the cut for this instead of Verdurous Gearhulk.

    This is super exciting. I'm also definitely at least testing it, and sadly, it'll probably be Gearhulk for me. Mostly sad because I just picked up a foil a week or two ago.

    Not being able to remove blockers for R hurts it a lot. It doesn't seem like this would have been too broken as an instant, is it just because it is a common? I will probably pass for cube but ill definitely get afew for the kitchen table.

    The worst part is it probably the only lightning bolt riff we are going to get, and I was really hoping for a better one. I guess if its "too strong" it affects older formats by giving burn decks another bolt.
    I don't remember where I read this (I think somewhere on MTGS), but it's probably a sorcery because they don't want shocklands ending up being spectacle enablers in Standard.
