Stranger thing utilization of clue provides a nice flavor ane mechanical tie to the characters, which is important of they are “Friends Forever”.
So with that, its a good design like a mini-set designed for building Stranger things themed edh decks.
Mike is weird though, and does
Not interact with the rest. Also, they should have made Mind Flayer colorless to be able to usable in all the edh decks you make with these.
Overall though, kinda tired of Secret Lairs. The last few I bought were disappointments (the foils do not look good in person). And the novelty really wears off for me.

Innistrad - Usual monster tribals, but hopefully the Spirits interact with the Kamigawa spirits.
Kamigawa can have more suport for the smaller races such as Fox, Rat, Snake and Moonfolk. Ninja is expected of course. And more Demons because....
New Capenna is already revealed to be a Demon Set, so yeah.
Dominaria will of course will have some glue smattering a few Snakes or Demons and random creature types. Perhaps tribal matter spells (e.g choose a creature type). Maybe even playable changelings!
For The Brother's War, I would love some Golem tribal or even just Artifact Creature Tribal. Better yet, Artificer tribal.
Sep 16, 2021JinxedIdol posted a message on The Brother's War - Modern Mechanics for a Retro Set?This expansion is quite interesting because it is set a long time ago, when some of Magic's mechanics were not present yet. Will we get a pure retro set or shall we get new mechanics in an old set?Posted in: Speculation
Some mechanics such as Improvise or Modular are fair game but Vehicles and Equipment seem odd as they never appeared in old sets. So do you think we will get an old school set or will Wizards choose modern design over continuity?
Sep 12, 2021JinxedIdol posted a message on Set (P)review - My top 20 Innistrad: Midnight Hunt (MID) cards for the cube!Obviously Falkenrath Pit Fighter is the slam dunk for given that it is only the third 2/X 1 drop for red. (Technically Goblin Guide and Zurgo the Bellringer have drawbacks but they are too good). This is definitely better than Falkenrath Gorger and has a more relevant ability. Will they ever have synergy? Perhaps almost never, but they do tend to go to the same decks.Posted in: Articles, Podcasts, and Guides
Adeline, Replendant Cathar is indeed better than Brimaz as long as you have a creature prior, which is the usual case for decks having them. I would say they are pretty close and interchangeable. Personally I would change only when I can acquire Adeline cheaply.
I like Suspicious Stowaway powerwise by really, really hate that the card needs 4 faces to function. I will essentially need a "token" DFC for convenient transforming as well as the day/night card. Too much inelegance. Will wait on this. Kinda odd that for smaller cubes the Werefolf is Blue.
As for Fateful Absence I am not liking the card disadvantage. So it is a pass for me now.
Sadly I have not played cube and will likely not play for a very long, long time due to the pandemic so I am holding off any updates for a while.
Nonetheless, preview seasons and your reviews and the cube community here provides enough discussion/analysis that keep me entertained. Thank you for this!
Sep 8, 2021JinxedIdol posted a message on [MID][CUBE] Suspicious Stowaway // Seafaring WerewolfI hate DFC’s logistically, but this is great! Will probably delay my purchase unless this is really cheap.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion
The alt frame art is really good too.
Sep 7, 2021I think better than Abbot of Keral Keep because ot is less random, and roughly as good as Dire Fleet Daredevil. With this you have more control of the spellsPosted in: Cube New Card Discussion
But with DFD you can pick up 1 cc spells,
Or at least hose your opponent. I still like DFD more.
Sep 7, 2021This card has to be the peak horror card of Innistrad. I mean, I literally can’t scroll up to it and afraid of clicking tbe link. NowPosted in: The Rumor Mill
that’s horror. Kudos Wizards.
The mutulation is gross, but what’s much worse is that it is someone else’s eye, observing you all the time. Stuff of nightmares!!
Sep 6, 2021Can’t be Disenchanted, too. Courser is on the controlling side, but this leans towards aggro and going wide.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion
An activated coven can go pretty nuts. Can’t wait to play with Oracle of Mul Daya or Sylvan Library.
Sep 6, 2021JinxedIdol posted a message on [MID] Augur of Autumn and Turn the Earth— Numerama previewsThat Augur is better then Courser of Kruphix in 2 aspects:Posted in: The Rumor Mill
1. Card is not revealed
2. It can upgrade to casting creatures as well
Sep 5, 2021I think the play pattern is quite limited. Put 2 wolves, then of opponent does nothing next turn (unlikely), you can attack with 9 power. If not you will likely use the +1 to skip the turn, Transform her and flash something. Dunno, seems needlessly complex for a vanilla effect.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion
The persist combo is something though, if you want an additional piece.
