    He caught the oversight and added "single-colored" above

    The reason Loyal Sentry might be Cubeable is that deathtouch is very good against hard to kill attackers such as those with hexproof. Helpfully, Sentry's ability also stops the trample and/or lifelink from things like Armadillo Cloak etc

    Moreover, if a player who hasn't ever played my cube and isn't aware of the range of morph commons, I'd rather not put them in this spot and have them feel bad about not knowing that disenchant guy was even an option. The upside to include these cards just isn't high enough for the potential negative impact on the experience of my drafters. YMMV.



    Is that really very different than not knowing if the Cube has, say, Disenchant effects in it or not? Not knowing a particular Cube is going to be a downside no matter what and I don't see the rationale to single out morph in that regard.

    There is no such thing as "knowledge advantage" with morphs. The worst case is that when you play your morph your opponent knows 100% which card it is..which is EXACTLY the same as every other card in your deck.

    It seems like the theory of "knowledge disadvantage" is a stupid idea being peddled by Rosewater. At one point he had morph as "highly linear". Garbage.

    Also, Ainok Survivalist pretty much supplants Nantuko Vigilante if anyone was using that

    Also Savannah Lions in White

    I also think that the 1/1 deathtouch for 1 are pretty good here -- Loyal Sentry (better than DT) and Ruthless Ripper.

    From a Cube design perspective (ie not strictly power level) a Wall of Earth in blue could be a nice fit

    Was personally hoping for Elvish Spirit Guide to finally get downshifted to common but that looks depressingly remote given that Simina Spirit Guide in uncommon in this set.

    Quote from Merovingiann »
    Diabolic Edict with new template and art. And Ghost Ship and Erg Raiders, but those are not cubable.


    Erg Raiders and Ghost Ship aren't downshifts I don't think. Maybe Ghost Ship on mtgo?
