    Sounds awesome. I would sleeve them in a different color so they never got accidentally shuffled in.

    After making the wishboards you could always power the wish cards up or down just by altering their board.

    Yeah, so far, I don't think any of these walkers are breaking into cube. Although peasant cubes will have to the fun of playtesting the uncommon ones.

    I think this could make the cut in pauper cubes.

    Any update on the results of voting? I know it probably takes some time to calculate the results.

    By strategy I mean that boros just wants to attack mostly, and in general, much like gruul, plays pretty fair magic. Lightning Helix and boros charm are good cards, but I don't think they are as busted as some of the cards in dimir, azorius, golgari,

    For both Gruul and Boros there are 2-3 cards that are head and shoulders above the others, and then it is just personal preference, bloodbraid elf, dragonlord atarka and ajani venjeant, boros charm, lightning helix. The other slots in the guilds are pretty flexible I feel because the cards are noticeably worse than these. Furthermore, decks built in these guilds all kinda look the same.

    I think Rakdos has a similar problem, but not as bad as these two. rakdos cackler is played in most cubes and what is it? A 2/2 that can't block. So, it is a bad savannah lions. I think Kolaghan's command is good, and the rest is flexible. Although after playing with her, I think judith, the scourge diva might be a new Rakdos must have as she enables both aggro and aristocrats. Red cap is fine, as is dread bore, but am a huge fan of bedevils flexibility to kill artifacts and planeswalkers.

    Size of cube helps play a big role in how noticeable a guild's weakness is. I think in a larger cube, you are forced to play more slightly suboptimal cards, and therefore, the weakness of individual guilds are less noticeable. In a small cube where you see most of the cards in a draft, suboptimal cards really stand out.

    Lastly, and I emphasize this is just my opinion, I think a lot of cubers are reticent about trying out new cards. Instead, I feel, they use old standbys. I like like changing things up. Letting my playgroup see new cards. I don't want them overly comfortable, and always able to draft the same deck, and I love it when they see a new card and go, "what is this?" and try something new around built around it. As a result, I am nearly always tinkering with my cube.

    How would you rank the guilds?

    I think pretty much all the blue guilds are the best, with Rakdos, Selesnya, Gruul, and Boros at the bottom.

    I think the different is that Boros actually has decent Boros cards, but that the Boros strategy is not that strong.

    Gruul probably has the overall worst guild cards.

    Thoughts?

    So, I have decided to cut murderous redcap, and keep the cackler in order to run theater of horrors. Rakdos is so weak compared to some of the other guilds, I really want to try out some new stuff. I actually think that some of the best rakdos cube cards are printed in this set.

    Judith, the scourge diva, Bedevil, and maybe theater, though not to the extent of these two. Judith is probably one of the top 5 Rakdos cards ever, and Bedevil is an upgrade over terminate and dreadbore.

    Yeah, I know everyone plays the cackler, I don't know. It just never seems to see any play in my group. Most of my rakdos section now supports aristocrats, so I have been thinking of pulling the cackler for something else.

    I have even toyed with playing footlight fiend in his place. rakdos cackler just doesn't seem to do much or seem flexible.

    I didn't see any other discussions of this card. I love the depth that light up the stage can give red. How do we feel about theater? Does it provide Rakdos the depth it needs? Does it make it a difference if the cube is powered or unpowered?

    I noticed that people were adding cards at the bottom of the spread sheet, but now they are all deleted. What is up with that?

    Goblin Cratermaker
    Assassin's trophy
    Knight of Autumn
    Gutterbones
    etc.

    I assume it was because they were new, but just because a card is new does not mean it does not belong on the list. After playtesting ravnica allegiance I would even add Light up the Stage. While certainly not the best red card in cube, it better than some other cards on the list.

    Rank the following:

    1. Wolfir Silverheart, Kalonian Hydra, Verdurous Gearhulk
    2. Rancor, Blossoming Defense, Berserk


    Verdurous Gearhulk > Kalonian Hydra > Wolfir Silverheart

    Trample is King! and the Gearhulk is more flexible. It either comes down as 8/8 trample, or spreads the threat around. Combined with Flicker effects, it is a house.

    Rancor > Berserk > Blossoming Defense
