Sep 15, 2021I'm adding these cards:Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion
Adeline, Resplendent Cathar
Falkenrath Pit Fighter
I'm considering/watching Consider, Cathar Commando, Cathartic Pyre, Primal Adversary, and Tovolar's Huntmaster
It's really good set for cube.

I'm pretty high on Fateful Absence too. I'm just not sure what to cut for it. I still have to get a Portable Hole, and I'm considering just running Absence instead.
I'm on the fence as to whether Tovolar's Huntmaster should replace Carnage Tyrant.
I like this set quite a bit. Enough power to ensure that about 6 cards are getting added to my cube and enough other interesting cards for me to try in other formats.
Aug 5, 2021rantipole posted a message on [Unpowered] Cythare's Cube - Updated through AFRI wouldn't cut Faerie Conclave. I prefer it to Academy Ruins, Sea Gate Restoration, and Jiwari Disruption, as well as several other cards you are running.Posted in: Cube Lists
You could skip Mimic to add the Hand. Sword of Truth and Justice seems like another good cut for it.
Jul 26, 2021Posted in: Cube ListsQuote from Szko »How did Luminious Broodmoth perform for you? Surprised to see spellskite go. Have you considered counting it as colorless? Giving Faerie Conclave a try or has Aetherling been underperforming? Would you say Yawgmoth isn't worth running with persist leaving? Why cut kiki? Do your players not like it?
Sphinx of the Steel Wind is a great Tinker/Fattie target, but you did just add in a bunch of others. It's a bit difficult to cast outside of that in comparison to Karn. I think the pathway lands are a good addition.
Due to covid, I never actually got to test Broodmoth and the persist combo. Ditto Kiki. In my trial drafts, persist was very hard to put together and I didn't want to dedicate more slots to it, so I thought scrapping it was better. I would've liked to keep Kiki, Aetherling, and Yawgmoth, but I needed to find room for the new stuff and some returning old stuff. They seemed expendable. Spellskite was OK but not critical for any deck.
Quote from Grapefruit21 »Custodi lich is so good. One of my favorite recurring nightmare targets in the sort of fair graveyard decks. I like the idea of Fall curving into planeswalkers but I definitely haven't tested it enough to have a strong opinion. Just impressed in very limited testing.
Custodi Lich is quite likely to make a return. Fall never got a chance for testing due to the virus, but it seemed a bit underpowered compared to other cards.

Hive of the Eye Tyrant vs. Agadeem's Awakening?

Yeah, you are likely right. That's another one to watch. I really wanted a cubeworthy beholder.
Jul 14, 2021rantipole posted a message on Set (P)review - My top 20 Adventures in the Forgotten Realms (AFR) cards for the cube!As I said on Twitter, thanks as always for the excellent article. I find this set really lackluster for cube, but you found some hits for many cubists. I'll probably just run the Hole and watch the manlands.Posted in: Articles, Podcasts, and Guides
Jul 12, 2021I never really got to test the monarch theme. I love the mechanic but I had to find room somewhere. Looking at other cubes, a lot of the monarch cards didn't last in them. Fall from Favor doesn't seem to be what blue needs anyway and that would be the monarch card I'd be least interested in bringing back. The one I will most miss is Custodi Lich and that could see a return.Posted in: Cube Lists
Cutting Khenra for Robber is an idea. I'll think about that.
Thanks for the feedback.

Very interested in any constructive feedback!
Jul 10, 2021I find this creature interesting but I'm not sure it quite gets there. Black 5-drops are still a little sparse but I'm not sure I need more and I'm not sure this is good enough.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion

Feb 4, 2014Hard to choose just one card, but I think it has to be Balance. It's among the most broken cards printed and I really have to wonder if the creators really thought it was balanced. I mean, if you set it up, you get Armageddon, Wrath of God, and Mind Twist for two mana. It's just insane.Posted in: Announcements
