Quote from GPash »Awesome. Will do! Thanks a bunch. I'm looking forward to finalizing my list!
Another question for you: how do you assess new cards when sets are released? Do you compare to similar cards in the same color at the same mana cost? In other words, do you see if certain cards can be "upgraded" by swapping for new cards?
Sorry for epic delay!
Yes, I try to replace cards within the same mana cost as much as possible. Some territories are tougher than others, for example red 3s, white 4s and of course blue overall is super stacked. 100 % balance in all colors is not super important for me when the cube is 1125 cards big.
This year has really been fantastic for us cube designers in both card quantity and quality. I think now there is no problem at all to keep a high power level in a 720 cube!
