Jan 23, 2019When my playgroup of 5 played with my cube (Around Zendikar), we played sealed and there are zero green cards that got played! Fortunately this changed immediately.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
In my group, people gravitated towards beefy midrange green creatures. Over the years more green creatures are added such as Thrun (which gave the voltron archtype - helped by more swords from that block).
Green Sun’s Zenith and Birthing Pod also complemented Survival-Recurring strategies by adding more search and consistency. With the slowly improving value creatures, this archtype has strengthened.
Polukranos, Wolfir Silverheart (now Verderous Gearhulk) has made ramp have a “lower curve” so you don’t have to wait for larger payoffs.
Green also has a land matters theme (Loam, Ramunap Excavator, the Titan, possibly Titania). Personally my cube does not flesh this out fully but this is something you can consider as being unique for green. Avenger of Zendikar is an example of land matters and ramp payoff that fits.
Green can also have a cheaty strategy (Natural order, Tooth and Nail) that works with Red (Sneak attack), Black (reanimator), and blue (Show
And Tell, Tinker)
So all theses strategies work well together: lands and ramp, or cheat value creatures and overwhelm your opponent.

Graveyard interaction (think dimir vs dredge).
This can actually work in many existing planes sich as Ravnica (Dimir stealing information) or Innistrad (zombies eating brains)
Jan 16, 2019JinxedIdol posted a message on Set (P)review - My top 20 Ravnica Allegiance cards for the cube!Love the (p)review. RAL has many good cards for specific archtypes, and few will go into cubes because quite simply, the competition is fierce. (A good thing)Posted in: Articles, Podcasts, and Guides
I really want Biongenic Ooze to work in 450 but Verdurous Gearhulk is simply more explosive. Though I can imagine trying it someday.
Gutterbones and Spawn of Mayhem are so good, there is nothing to discuss there. Together with Doom whisperer I am very happy for black this batch of upgrades
Dovin is in my radar for artifact cube, with the plothera of tokens/thopters in white/blue/artifact. But I never thought it to crack the top 2 in regular cube! I am quite skeptical if my playgroup see the WU tempo angle. I always view tempo as an advanced deck construction technique, where the advantages are incremental, not too obvious and there are not too mane fun interactions. I think Dovin here can be a good signpost for the archtype. I will try him over Venser but I can imagine switching back because of Venser’s ever increasing interactions.
Jan 10, 2019Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Brandy263 »I don't think I will ever be unable to see the fact that Karn is just flat out standing there, and rubbing his nipples.
Can't unsee it now. For my cube, I was hoping for Karn to have better this time around but this feels bland, almost like a golem token. I will have to settle for the DOM version.
Tamiyo art is great, though.
Jan 9, 2019I love this card. Sac Gutterbones, trigger Spectacle and have the mana to return it to hand. Or well, yeah, sac tokens or cards with Afterlife.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
The Forgotten Gods make me curious.. perhaps these will be featured in the next set?
Jan 6, 2019I love this card. With the slew of ETB/Leaves play/sac abilities in cube this has applications in all colors. Worst case is a hasty recurring creature.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Things I like about the vat:
- Costs nothing to imprint. You can imprint without worrying about the timing. (Eg no need to leave mana open)
- (Edit) Unlike other imprints, there is no card disadvantage here as you are imprinting something already dying.
- You can hose opponents’ recursion - and better yet - use it against him multiple times!
- You can upgrade your imprints when needed
- Your “Unimprinted” cards go back to the yard for further abuse.
Jan 3, 2019Pretty much someday all black 1 drops will recur. This is 100% in.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion
While this is worse than Bloodsoaked Champion in terme of returning to attack, this has some discard interactions. Survival of the Fittest, Pack Rat. EDIT: Note that you can recur this multiple times as long as you have the mana.
Now that there are more recursion I am wondering whether to remove one of the vanilla 2/2 zombies or Reassembling Skeleton.
