This dying to Ravenous Chupacabra is weird, ha!
All fun aside, this is a great big beefy guy. Love it.

They won't be able to recast that quite as easily.
Actually yes ...they will, for free

The fact that this is uncommon is what bothers me the most.
I can get behind Rampant Growth being a little powerful for a limited environment in today standards, being creatures so pushed. But, c'mon, this is just insulting.
I can't understand WotC's policy for balancing cards nowadays. You see cards like The Scarab God but somehow Rampant Growth is too powerful? I mean, we can't even get a Terror nowadays . . . I have to pay 5 mana to kill a creature with Contract Killing
My conclusion from this spoiler season is that WotC already has the metagame they want for standard/limited in mind while designing the sets, which I think is horrible. The good things about new sets is brewing decks, finding great interactions with the variety of cards, finding cool value combos. But it seems like we will have yet another 4 months of stale & uninteresting decks.
Please someone tell me if I'm wrong or WotC is lacking some balls. . .

Considering that Storm is already unreliable in Powered Cube I highly doubt it it will be reliable in C/Ube.
Either way, I will try it out (for science) and I'll post here my results. I love theorycrafting about certain things, but when you are actually playing there are other things that come up that you didn't consider while theorycrafting. I have hope
Dec 28, 2017Hello everyone,Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I hope everyone is having a good time on their vacations. I, personally, have been having a blast. Here, where I live, December = summer, so I'm all tanned up by now. Haha! Great 2018 to all! I wish you all playable uncommons/commons in sets to come and downshifts of good rares.
I have been watching/playing lots of Holiday (powered) Cube. Every match is diferent from each other and the decks usually end up very interesting, specially because of the how many archetypes are supported in that Cube. That creates a very interesting evironment, I'd say Powered Cube is my favorite kind of Magic. I've forced storm a bunch of times already, and i'd like to revive a discussion that took place back in 2015 (and touched briefly on the Unstable discussion on Crow Storm).
In hopes of making my draft experience a little more than 'Should I go aggro or control?' I've added Reanimator and other X-matters archetypes, but I'm never fully convinced, so I ask . . .
Is Storm an archetype that can be added in C/Ube?
Empty the Warrens
Brain Freeze (no Eldrazi Titans in C/ube yay!)
Tendrils of Agony
Sol Ring + other mana rocks. Mind Stone and Thran Dynamo
Cloud of Fearies
Seething Song + other red rituals
Izzet Signet + friends. Help the fixing and the ramp, these decks tend to be 3+ colors.
Preordain + other cantrips. Ponder,Brainstorm
Compulsive Research the turn before you go off, maybe?
Suspend cards - Rift Bolt, Staggershock, Riftwing Cloudskate, Search for Tomorrow
Regrowth or Eternal Witness
Mutagenic Growth better pump up that Guttersnipe and hit for the missing 4 dmg. Lol.
Izzet Boilerworks + other Karoo Lands. Built-in card advantage on lands is nice.
The main problem I find with this archetype is that the cards are maybe too narrow. But that is something that doesn't concern me, I'm like that.
What are your opinions on the matter?
Thanks in advance!

Some people have reported Monument is busted, but I haven't tried it. I could see it, has a high ceiling, but also can be a dead draw and needs some other things to go right to get a Hordeling Outburst worth of value out of it
On a recent draft, I had the Oketra's Monument out, and on turn 4 managed to curve into a white 3-drop (costing 1 less), create a 1/1, surge-cast Reckless Bushwhacker, creating another 1/1. All creatures get +1/+0 and haste, hit you for: like a billion
Of course this is a narrow interaction between two cards, but it's a pretty good one.
Dec 20, 2017I'm having trouble finding a good (budget) tutor for my cube and I feel like Diabolic Tutor is too expensive. Watching bacchus2 struggle with his Pending Tutor design, I came up with an idea.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Would a repeatable tutor be to OP?
Search your library for a card and put it in your hand. If the kicker cost was paid, shuffle Find-Everything Tutor into its owner's library.
Nov 21, 2017Thank you for the responses.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I'll keep my eyes open for Forsake the Worldly.
In the meantime, I'll cut Fragmentize, as I feel Disenchant is a more 'iconic' card, which I value very much in my cube.
Also, thank you for giving a look at my cube before answering the question (The 5 cmc thing really matters). Time is very valuable and spending it to help others online is a nice thing. I won't take your suggestions lightly.
Nov 14, 2017Hello there!Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Love the idea! From the top of my mind I suggest:
Seal of Doom and the white Seal should be pretty good.
Too bad Blightcaster is uncommon
Editing and adding:
Psionic Gift is interesting.
Fertile Ground or Abundant Growth to support multicolor decks?
Would Annul be OP?

Wow, thank you very much!
This is very useful information.
How has Invigorate performed for you? Does it oftenly help you win combat? I feel its great for protecting Mana dorks in early turns against burn spells
