Sep 22, 2021I haven't managed to get a hold of a copy of this card yet, but have planned to axe Primeval Titan. Huntmaster doesn't have trample, which is a little awkward, but I have always been unexcited about a 6-drop that gets more lands, and hope that this card will live up to my expectations.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion

The eggs are being tested for density of searching with Urza's Saga. I'm not against supporting Lurrus/Emry or delirium in the cube, but haven't considered it in detail. Lurrus was in the cube briefly but I believe got cut for Vanishing Verse (coupled with the companion changes).Quote from Breathe1234 »Whats the reason for all the artifact - eggs? I don't see Lurrus, Emry or Auriok or Delirium in your cube.
I've been toying with my persist package for a while now - its a very eloquent archetype to have. I would love it a bit more if I can have +1 strong creature tutor or +1 good persist or +1 recursion or +1 sacrifice outlet.

I like Academy Ruins more, but Sea Gate Restoration is fine to cut.Quote from rantipole »I wouldn't cut Faerie Conclave. I prefer it to Academy Ruins, Sea Gate Restoration, and Jiwari Disruption, as well as several other cards you are running.
You could skip Mimic to add the Hand. Sword of Truth and Justice seems like another good cut for it.
I wasn't sure with Mimic - I'd intended to add it for persist support but just forgot about it. I'm not sure if it's needed for density at this size?

Whoops, I missed this from a couple months back! I liked having it as a two-drop 2/2 with flying for aggro that was also attached to a raise dead effect. It was fine to just cast on-curve but also had an acceptable topdeck mode if you weren't on the back foot when you drew it. It has since been cut, though, to test Necrogen Spellbomb alongside Urza's Saga.Quote from Resarox »Can you maybe elaborate on Order of Midnight? It never seemed overly appealing to me, but I have seen you speak up for it on several occasions and am intrigued.
Jul 9, 2021At 630, I'm currently looking at:Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Yuan-Ti Malison (over Sea Gate Stormcaller)
Wight (still figuring out cut, but maybe Doom Whisperer or Custodi Lich)
Den of the Bugbear (over Spikefield Hazard)
Hand of Vecna (probably over Blast Zone? not sure here)
I'm also considering cutting Agadeem's Awakening to add in Hive of the Eye Tyrant.
Jun 29, 2021I feel the painlands are generally better than the checklands, since they'll always enter untapped, and can tap for colorless once your other mana sources can provide fixing later on to save on life loss. I do agree that the horizon lands are better overall, especially for aggro decks, so I'd rate them as Horizon > Pain > Check, and agree that the first two may swap for slower guilds.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion

I like Order of Midnight and LtLH a little more, but have no specific attachment to Opposition Agent.Quote from rantipole »I'd keep Flesh Carver over Order of Midnight, Custodi Lich, Opposition Agent, or any of the Lilianas aside from LotV.
Rest looks good.

I'll definitely miss the Ferocidon and the Vanguard as well. I hadn't considered Hero of Precinct One, but I really wanted to try out General Ferrous Rokiric, and someone in a cube Discord suggested I also try adding Hero alongside it. I'm interested to see how it plays, although the roof on it is definitely lower than on the General.Quote from Patrunkenphat7 »Those seem like great changes!
Cards I will miss from your list:
I love almost all the new additions. The one that I’ll keep my eye on and personally have never tried is Hero of Precinct One.

You can only replicate when you cast it, but they'll have to counter each of the copies individually or pay for them.Quote from mblieb »and replicate means your opponent can't just respond back with their counter
I think this doesn't beat other counterspells right? b/c you can only replicate when you cast it? maybe I'm missing something.
May 28, 2021I'm skeptical of this one, but happy others are excited. Finding room for expensive equipment is tough, and this doesn't stabilizes against aggro and doesn't have a reasonable expectation of a casting mode.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
It's definitely a cool card, but I think it'll end up missing for me.
