    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!

    No problem at all! The extra 7 Cards that were mixed colorless and multi was because I was lazy Wink I couldn’t find that many multicolored cards so I therefore put them together with some colorless cards.

    Yeah, especially in Dimir, cuts are a headache!

    So you had Oracle? Guess I just missed it. Tarmogoyf is actually good in B/G rock, I was also sceptical to it first but it can actually pull its weight in 720 IMO.

    Check out my 765 cube in the signature below and take a look at my guild sections for the suggested lands to run if you like.

    As you can see, I need to make a few cuts/additions so that my cube is on target for the color breakdown noted in the first post. Currently, this is where I'm at:

    White: 91 (need to cut 1 card)
    Blue: 96 (need to cut 6 cards)
    Black: 98 (need to cut 8 cards)
    Red: 92 (need to cut 2 cards)
    Green: 88 (need to add 2 cards)
    Azorius: 15
    Dimir: 15
    Rakdos: 13 (need to add 2 cards)
    Gruul: 14 (need to add 1 card)
    Selesnya: 13 (need to add 2 cards)
    Orzhov: 15
    Golgari: 13 (need to add 2 cards)
    Simic: 15
    Izzet: 15
    Boros: 13 (need to add 2 cards)
    Multi: 13 (need to add 7 cards)
    Colorless: 100

    Any suggestions on the additions/subtractions would be greatly appreciated. If you're browsing the card selection and notice any glaring omissions, let me know as well. Thanks!

    I really like your list, it's very similar to my 720 (765).

    Here are my suggestions after I scrolled through your list:

    Cut either Brightling or Linvala, Keeper of Silence.

    These are closest to cut:
    Frost Titan
    Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur
    Nexus of Fate
    Tamiyo, the Moon Sage
    Jace, Architect of Thought

    I would keep Jace or Frosty I think. Also, I guess Miscommunication should be Miscalculation instead Wink

    My 8 cuts for black:
    Demonlord Belzenlok
    Puppeteer Clique
    Fatal Push
    Arguel's Blood Feast
    Gonti, Lord of Luxury
    Ritual of Soot
    Grim Tutor
    Bone Shredder

    Cut Rekindling Phoenix, you already have so many four drops. And I wouldn't run Runaway Steam-Kin. Is it good?

    Add Tarmogoyf and Oracle of Mul Daya, Oracle is 360 staple IMO.
    OR you can add some more Storm support; Noxious Revival and Rude Awakening.

    For the guilds I would suggest to add one more land in each combination. I play 8 lands in each guild at 765 so I think 7 should go in a 720 cube.

    + 1 land and I don't know, maybe Falkenrath Aristocrat, Murderous Redcap or try out Judith, the Scourge Diva.

    + 1 land.

    + 1 land and Qasali Pridemage.

    + 1 land and Life // Death

    + 1 land and Boros Charm

    Here I'll list 7 cards that I think fit in yor 720:
    Ratchet Bomb
    Fleetwheel Cruiser
    Ankh of Mishra
    Villainous Wealth (Extra Storm win-con)
    Yasova Dragonclaw
    Reality Smasher

    I would go with jack-in-the-Mox. I play it myself and it’s great.

    Speaking of which, how would you rank the three UR walkers (Ral Zarek, Dack Fayden, and Saheeli) in 400 powered? I’m trying to cut one to reduce planeswalker density in Izzet

    In a 400 powered cube there should be only room for Dack Fayden. Ral Zarek is only slightly better than Saheeli Rai IMO

    EDIT: Forgot about Saheeli the Gifted! Obviously she is clearly behind Dack but also clearly ahead Ral Zarek.
