    I haven't cubed with her yet, but Judith, the Scourge Diva has been an absolute bomb in limited. She plays a lot better than I thought she would and I thought she would be pretty good. Seeing how much damage she can push through with even just a few creatures on the board is impressive. The games I've played her in remind me a lot of how Hellrider ends games. Im going to give this card extended testing. She's definitely the biggest mover upwards for me.

    I haven't seen as much Tithe Taker on this list as I would have thought. Im still playing Trueheart Duelist so that's an easy switch.

    Spawn of Mayhem - Easy include for me. I run black aggro and this guy looks great.
    Gutterbones - Recursive black one drops are perfect for cube. This one returns to hand for a bit of a different look too.
    Dovin, Grand Arbiter - I'm trying this out over Geist. Thopters are good and if given a little breathing room he can ultimate very quickly.
    Light Up the Stage - A solid pseudo-draw spell. I don't think you need to be too picky on the timing of this card either which helps.
    Electrodominance - People keep comparing this to the Expertise cycle but I think this is leagues better. Think of how much better Baral's Expertise would be if it were was an instant.
    End-Raze Forerunners - Lesser Craterhoof is still a good card.
    Biogenic Ooze - I think I came in way too high on this card. I was thinking it was like pack rat but unfortunately you can cut the head off this guy. Also, the mana sink ability encourages you to do it on your turn which is unfortunate. I'll still test though.
    Hydroid krasis - This was really not the Simic card I was looking for, but it's a scaleable flampler you can dump a bunch of mana into. It's definitely more exciting than Trygon Predator
    Cindervines - A good card against most decks but a total beast against control. Not exciting but I think it can pack a punch.

    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.
    Ackh! I hate when that happens. Or when you finally buy the foil only to realize there's a promo art you like more. Cube problems Wink

    Do you guys think it’s better than Whisperwood Elemental? That’s the comp that seems most apt to me. Grows faster but has less utility.
    2/2 synergies and an instant speed mana sink. I think this is definitely better.

    Yes! Finally, something new and interesting. Ugh. So happy to see this. Dancing Banana Favorite card of the set for me.

    Not bad, but this seems like a worse Qasali Pridemage overall.
    Yes, but that doesn't mean it isn't cubeable.
    What I wish we got:
    RG
    riot
    1 mana , sacrifice: Destroy target artifact or enchantment. Cindervines deal 2 damage to that permanent's controller.
    2/2

    The sorcery speed is pretty brutal. I would play Incendiary Flow before I played this.

    It's not the gruul card I was looking for but I can see this doing 4+ damage on a regular basis while trading with a card on board. Doing 1 damage on every artifact, enchantment, instant, sorcery and planeswslker your opponent casts can add up really quick. I think I'll try this out.

    I think Fumigate is just a better, more versatile card. It can be played outside of Orzhov, you'll probably be gaining an additional 2-5 life and it doesn't take up a guild spot. Sure it's 5cmc, but Fumigate is easier to accelerate into using mana rocks, so on average I bet it wouldn't be that much slower than Kaya's Wrath anyway.

    "You can't cast non-creature spells" is one of the worst downsides a Cube card could possibly have. I would say you could Donate it but, well, you know.

    I think Cubes have better options than this. Most 1cc discard spells have a restriction on what card it can target while this has a restrictive mana cost. Personally, I prefer the former.

  • posted a message on [RNA][CUBE] Electrodominance
    Im surprised so many people aren't even willing to test this card. Personally, I'm really excited by the idea of casting all my broken Cube spells at instant speed. With a fiery confluence you can deal 10 damage to the face on eot. A more common play is probably just to kill a creature, cast any creature with an etb effect and swing combat massively in your favor. There's a lot of ways to get creative with Electrodominance.

    We all know what an advantage playing at instant speed is and this card opens the possibility of playing multiple cards at instant speed at the same time. I do understand there's an RR 'tax' to be paid but that RR will also be netting you 2-5 damage and can also fix your mana so I don't buy that argument.

    I think when you look at any one aspect of the card it looks weak, but as a package together the card is quite good and I will definitely be trying it out.
