    Spawn > Valkyrie > Nightmare Shepherd, but none of these are so far ahead that you couldn't pick and choose to taste

    History > Sigrid > Angel, unless you have a massive lifegain theme

    Emberwilde Captain > Hazoret > Toralf? Unless you run a huge burn package, then Toralf probably gains some value.

    EDIT: regarding another comment last page, Wilt is super good; Disenchant/Naturalize is a perfectly cubeable baseline, then adding cycling is a fantastic addition for this effect.


    About Wilt, realized how good it is when i compared it with the versatility of miscalculation!
    Similar cards, whoever has played with miscalculation can understand!

    with cubes playing very few foretell cards and most likely one per color or none even, when black player play this foretell card, smart opponent will play around Smile

    I like Wilt the most out of all of those ...and by a lot.

    3cc Nissa is a great card in token shells, go-wide decks or anything looking for sacrifice fodder.


    Thanks wtw! I now shall find something to cut..

    Nissa isn't a blow out planeswalker - she's decent in Opposition, Skullclamp, Smokestack, Gaea's Cradle decks. She's one of the few anthem effects playable in cube. She's a nice enabler for a lot of payoff cards.

    If you read Nissa's SCD, you can see that some of the opinions is she's not that strong by herself and needs a one of these creature shells to work. (Which is pretty much any deck that can a 3 mana, double grene spell).

    Wilt is pretty good - it gets better in a powered cube. I'm currently testing - Beast Within this is pretty good in green decks that lack answers. If you're looking to support green aggro/ midrange in powered cubes, Wilt/ Claim is not the way to go against the fast mana. I find you need cards like Collector Ouphe or Reclamation Sage (there are several Reclamation Sage variants)


    Thank you very much for the great explanation!! I am always after engine cards, and as you describe it she is nice to have her anthem and the other synergies presentation in my cube.

    at my list, what i could remove to add wilt or beast within? https://cubecobra.com/cube/overview/gkourk

    if i had to choose one of nature's claim, beast within, wilt?
    if i would like to support monogreen which one i should choose?
    side note, is nissa, voice of zendikar any good? where would be useful? a couple of times played her didn't seem any strong?

    I play since 1997, my worst feeling at a match is to see my opponent drop turn 1 library at play or draw.
    There is no other card creates that bad feeling. No lotus no sol ring no recall no mox first play creates that feeling.
    With the artifacts I know i will have some sort of removal for those or for the threat, with recall maybe they draw bad, but man when i see recall how i will answer it with so many restricted answers?
    Always speaking for the feeling saw first card /play from opponent in a duel.

    For first Booster the only card would pick over library is recall.
    For me
    1.recall
    2.library
    3.sol ring
    4.lotus
    5.moxes
    6.time walk

    Inquisition vs duress

    Wow.. Why i think both are a must?
    In case i had to choose i would go with duress in both cases powered or unpowered.
    There are so many brutal PWs at 4cmc.

    I see Embercleave as a way to trim the narrow red 1 drops.

    I've removed Jackal Pup, Falkenrath Gorger and Firedrinker Satyr.

    I've added Embercleave, SoulScar Mage to try to reduce the number of parasitic one drops to allow the red deck to be more a bit more midrange. (Similar to standard Ramnup red than mono red in modern/ legacy)


    Firedrinker Satyr is probably the 3rd to 5th best aggressive 1 drop in most cubes given the mana sink. Esp if you are adding Embercleave, he stands to benefit more than most.


    Please give us your top5!

    Guys what's going on with tooth and nail and selvana's stampede, too slow for nowadays?
    I have seen modo vintage cube last days and even if modo list doesn't include those i don't think there are needed..?
    So, according to that statement,
    Tooth and nail, selvana's stampede, magus of the order and eureka (not even single duel saw that card played..)
    Rank these please, keep in mind i use some combo cards like Kiki combos, combat celebrant, great oak Guardian that tooth and nail can bring both pieces.

    I've only just found out about these, but has anyone tried the new Dragon Shield Cube Shells? https://twitter.com/DragonShield_/status/1321128345044701188

    These look like Cubeamajigs, but coming from a more reputable/accessible brand. I haven't been able to find these locally yet, has anyone tried them out yet? My one qualm is I wish they had more available colours, but I'll take what I can get.


    Nice one, I would interested for the boxes that you place cards inside to make boosters!

    Unfortunately this one was an incredibly weak card that was always the 24th card.

    The aristocrats/ melira deck's strength is that it always had enough playables - the green-white color pair is relatively underdrafted and doesn't need support.

    The artifact deck is surprisingly constant at coming together in terms of drafts.

    I'll be coming some experimentation with a full set of artifact two card combos to include all the two card combinations + artifact tutors + support pieces,


    Nice explained
