Jan 24, 2021As time allows, I have a pet project of creating an FF9 inspired MTG set. This is one design inspired by FF9 and brought into the world of MTG.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
FF9 Creature - Epitaph (Oeilvert)
Epitaphic Emobdiment 1UB
Creature - Shapeshifter (R)
: Epitaphic Embodiment becomes a copy of target creature an opponent controls except it has all abilities of Epitaphic Embodiment.
: Destroy target creature with the same name as this creature.
I think Epitaph when translated into MTG would look a lot like Evil Twin. This has some advantages and disadvantages when compared with Twin. It has a p/t of its own, it has a lower CC, it has a repeatable copy effect and kill effect. On the other hand Embodiment is slower than Evil Twin at copying and killing and it can only copy opponent's creatures.
Let me know - does this design invoke the epitaph enemy of FF9? Is this a card you would want to play?
Jan 18, 2021Probably worth cutting Parallax Wave for in my cube. Even being able to threaten a turn 3 wrath is going to give a lot of aggro decks headaches.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Edit: Also a full art version of this needs to happen if it isn't already out there.
Jan 14, 2021Agree with all that's been said. Cut is between Skymarcher Aspirant or Mardu Woe-Reaper. Think aspirant will be the cut as Woe Reaper has more relevant creature types and the incidental graveyard hate is mildly more impactful than the rare game where aspirant flies.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Jan 12, 2021I think History of Benalia might be my cut here. I run Finale of Glory too, but I like that Finale of Glory will never require you to wait for the effect and it can win games on the spot in a Purphoros build. Both History of Benalia and this card when foretold have a turn delay minimum for the full token output of the card and History is definitely weaker than this.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Edit: Also, this is legitimately the first card spoiled that I think is a likely inclusion from this set. A few others worthy of testing, but overall this set is the calm before the wallet-busting storm (aka Modern Horizons 2)coming later in the year and I am okay with that.
Jan 12, 2021Thankfully, the borderless art on this one is much much better. Only downside is no reminder text on that one - which I like to have to help players who don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of MTG mechanics.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Jan 11, 2021Think the giveaway here was that this guy bragged about how much money he spent dumping his copies of this card due to inside information....can't imagine anyone would be dumb enough to brag about that while spoiling a card, but then again you never know....Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jan 10, 2021I usually think of Spawn as a 3CC creature since he usually gets cast for that in my experience. Still comparable since they're similar, but I'm looking at whether Kalitas should go for this....I don't like this better than any of my other 4CC black creatures.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion

Because when someone wraths the board you've got a vehicle that takes as much power to crew as it has power and no tokens to replicate. This one is a really easy pass for me. If Crew 3 has proven to be a high enough burden to cause Skysovereign, Consul Flagship to miss most cubes, this isn't even close.
Jan 7, 2021BlackWaltz3 posted a message on [KHM] [CUBE] Valki, God of Lies // Tibalt, Cosmic ImposterYou could argue that the front-half not being very "Godlike" works considering this isn't a true god, but a trickster playing at being a god.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Really going to need to test this one - feels very matchup dependent. A ton of cube creatures have value tied to their etb triggers but this becomes the creature permanently and even grants a sort of pseudo-haste (e.g. if you turned this into Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin on turn 3 or Hero of Bladehold on turn 4 you can reap the benefits a turn earlier than usual) and it has a PW side to boot.
Jan 6, 2021Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype DiscussionQuote from steve_man »Pretty sure foretell isn't going to give your spells flash. It's not like Shelldock Isle where the resolution of the ability allows you to play X card. I'll be very surprised if there's instant cards with foretell, I'd imagine they wouldn't want people to get juked by cards from exile out of nowhere.
Jan 4, 2021I'm a bit late on this but why Deliberate over Omen of the Sea? Isn't Omen of the Sea more often than not just Deliberate with additional upside? I mean if your cube goes deep on spells matter I could see Deliberate getting the nod, but otherwise I'd go Omen.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Jan 3, 2021BlackWaltz3 posted a message on Popular Cube Card that Under Performed. Discussion Thread 2021I'm not sure why sharing my take on why this framework is problematic is being construed as "becoming emotional". I can have a strong opinion about this without it being because my emotions are running unchecked...I'm speaking as someone who has created threads like this years ago and has grown to appreciate that it wasn't the most constructive way to share my opinion.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
I'm not against someone sharing opinions about cards based on their own experiences - popular or otherwise. I'm against positing your individual experiences/observations as evidence that particular cards are outdated and others choices to continue to run them might be because they haven't caught on like you have (Statements such as "I think it’s fair to presuppose that we are a community that is slow to change" are representative of this mindset). The issue here isn't with sharing one's opinions about cards, it is the framework by which one does so. I already provided recommendations in my previous post on how someone can share their thoughts on cards without adopting this framework.
