Jun 18, 2021Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype DiscussionQuote from Breathe1234 »How do you feel about Stoneforge today?
I feel without Batterskull, Skullclamp or Kaldra Compleat (I don't run it though) in my deck, she's not really worth it.
I think Stoneforge Mystic is easily one of the best white cards in cube (assuming you're not holding back on equipment). A 2 for 1 for that cheats things into play is busted at 1W.
Not running Batterskull / Clamp does lower its power level a bit, but I'd still cube it if I were cubing Jitte / critical mass of swords / etc.

A card being great in constructed formats doesn't necessarily translate to a limited format. If people have reports on the card in their cube I'd love to read them though.
In a powered cube, it can go into any deck really as long as you have targets. Obviously the artifact deck gets the most use out of it, but any deck can take advantage of grabbing a mana rock or something. It's also pretty powerful in aggro since it finds Skullclamp / Bonesplitter / Bomat Courier, not to mention provide Karnstructs.

Archangel Avacyn > Baneslayer Angel > Kenrith, the Returned King
Hero's Downfall > Eliminate > Flay Essence (although Eliminate can be #1 if you have a really small curve)

Curious to hear where people are at a year later.
They're definitely good, I just don't think they're necessary at smaller cube sizes. For me personally 540 is the sweet spot for them. I don't have them in the 480 version of my cube.
Jun 11, 2021Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype DiscussionQuote from armando.zuffi »1 - Mizzium Mortars vs Soul Sear vs Thundering Rebuke ? What order ? Why most people think those cards so worse than Char for example
2 - Huntmaster of the Fells vs Domri, Anarch of Bolas ?
3 - Triplicate Titan vs Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger vs Emrakul, the Promised End IN VOID ? I don't support Tinker/Daretti, Scrap Savant strategies
- Mizzium Mortars > Thundering Rebuke > Soul Sear. Most people think it's worse than Char because it doesn't go to face, plain and simple.
- Domri if you support green aggro, Huntmaster of the Fells otherwise
- Ulamog >>> Emrakul > Triplicate Titan

My fifth article on CubeCobra! Let me know if there’s a card that I missed and I’ll respond back with the hottest of takes. Also, feel free to join the Online Cube Drafts Discord Group to discuss all things Cube plus use Xmage to host tournaments to draft / play with our own cubes!
Jun 3, 2021Posted in: Cube New Card DiscussionQuote from wtwlf123 »While it's true that there are a lot of decks that want the "safety" of a card like Coldsteel Heart (so this doesn't die to your own Wraths and Wildfires and stuff) there are also a good number of decks that can take advantage of the fact that it's a creature. Having a "mana rock" that can be sac'd to Recurring Nightmare, grabbed by Recruiters, and pitched to Survival, is not a non-factor.
Sure it's not a non-factor, but I don't think it makes up for its shortcomings. The primary role of a 2-cmc mana rock is to ramp first: color fixing and anything else is secondary. I don't even think this is any better than Guardian Idol.
Jun 3, 2021This isn't a reliable discard outlet since it requires a target. Would've been cool if this was an instant so you could sacrifice a creature in response to removal. As is, this is hardly any better than Spark Harvest.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion
Jun 2, 2021I think this is everything? I'm mostly excited for the new black cards / black multicolored cards like Grist and Master of the Dead. I would've added Urza's Saga if my cube were powered.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion

Jun 1, 2021This competes most with Remorseful Cleric, IMO, which is a pretty good place to be. You really won't be using Stoneforge Mystic to fetch this most of the time, but Halvar always appreciates higher equipment density.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion
