    Really Sorry, I got my names mixed up. I meant the new card Carrier Thrall.

    I know the art and what it does but I got the name completely wrong.

    I'm really interested to see how Carrier Thrall goes.

    All look like great changes, Maybe Surrak didn't get enough of a run but at 360 with modern mana bases I definitely think Woodland Wanderer could be better. Will be interesting to see how it goes.

    My brother in law no longer lives in Osaka so trips to Japan don't look likely in the near future but nothing is concrete.

    I do covet that Shivan Dragon, I paid $20 for one of those back when $20 was a big deal and could get you a dual land.

    No regrets other than I don't still have the Shivan Dragon Smile

    Edit: It's 1.83 on Puca Trade, may as well.

    You have already a third colour with white in your deck. I will not cast radiant flames for 4 mana in a normal game...


    I completely missed the white, I need new glasses.

    Splash black for one more fetch and 1 Murderous Cut look strange.

    I like your list too. But I think I will play something close to the list that win the states.


    The black is also for the converge on Radiant Flames.

    I haven't seen much love for blood Scrivener elsewhere in this forum so I am rooting for him. I run 360 so I couldn't fit him in but think he deserves to be in the conversation. A lot of value for for a black card in that 2 mana slot.

    I completely missed the sideboard. Looking a lot better now, pretty savy buys.

    I started playing in revised so that's my soft spot. I wish you lived in Korea because I would definitely want to draft this cube Smile

    I think you could just go ahead and play it as is. I did think of Roc of Kher Ridges as another card worth adding.

    It was mentioned above but Elvish Archers seem a necessary addition if just for aesthetic reasons.

    At the top end I think there is room for Mahamoti Djinn and Shivan Dragon and you risk getting called out for not including them. Nice white bordered copies should be under a dollar and would be fun upgrades over Sea Serpent and Wall of Opposition.

    Since you have a land stealing/ destroying theme that you probably don't want to be too powerful then I think Demonic Hordes fits right in, perhaps for Sacrifice which I don't really see a way to abuse. Force of Nature is probably cooler than Web as well.

    That fills out all the iconic top end to go with Spike Rogue's tips for cheaper creatures.

    You have some cards that are considered a bit unfun, the Circle of Protections, Karma's, Life Forces, Flash Fires etc. That is what old school Magic is all about afterall. I would either embrace that and put in mind twist and the rack or try and be a little more subtle. Northern Paladin had pretty cool art that could replace Karma. It is really strong against Black but not game over like Karma was.

    *All references to art have the revised version in mind.

    Maybe too many people complained about him forcing mono red EVERY time in a previous iteration of the holiday cube.

    Which coupled with Owen's personality didn't make for the most compelling videos. I could imagine him doing a protest draft like this Smile

    By not cutting Mind Stone do you mean not adding Grim Monolith?


    No, Grim Monolith's awesome. I mean I'd cut something else. Basalt Monolith would be my cut.


    I'm definitely on board with that swap.

    All of these look like rock solid changes to me except I wouldn't cut Mind Stone. Any plans for a BFZ update?


    By not cutting Mind Stone do you mean not adding Grim Monolith?

    From BFZ very little. The man lands are the best cycle NOT making the cut at 360. So I am looking to grab them for the sideboard if I ever need to accommodate 10 drafters. New Ulamog, Gideon and Drana are certainties.

    Ob Nixilis is interesting as there aren't many Black Walker options. Stasis Snare having flash and Carrier Thrall I will keep tabs on. Maybe Expedition Envoy will replace Elite Vanguard for aesthetic reasons Smile

    Pretty much just those 3 though.

    Knocked off some biggies with Survival of the Fittest and some flip walkers.

    Temporarily added the Time Vault combo for marketing reasons. Wouldn't be the meanest cube ever made without it Smile

    Will now get moving on some of the little stuff though none of it feels egregious to cube with out. Time for me to update the first page list as well. I will put that on the to do list once treachery is obtained.
    I was very sad to cut Putrid imp but with the new Drana we are getting pretty close to black aggro actually being a good archetype.

    I don't think Ascendency is that left field, one of the modes is basically Monastary Siege.

    I prefer Grixis for the sweeper options though. But I don't know what the non Tutelage decks are going to look like.

    Cookie Monster, I like where you are going. I am also building Grixis Tutelage but have been distracted by necromantic summons and Ulamog.

    It is really going to be meta dependent as to what sweepers work best but I like Languish at 4 because you can follow up with Ob Nixilis on 5 Smile

    Edit: Thinking about it though, there isn't much that Languish kills that Radiant Flames doesn't. You might just want the near unconditional wrath.
