    Friendly riff:

    Rogue Guy, Undercity Broker WUBR
    Legendary Creature — Human Rogue (M)
    2, Pay 2 life: Draw a card. Any player may activate this ability but only during his or her turn.
    4, Discard a card: Destroy another target creature. Any player may activate this ability but only during his or her turn.
    4/4

    In a perfect world you'd get nice things whenever another player uses one of his abilities, but that's a whole lot of words.

    Saving up six energy (and then spending it) is small time compared to saving up fifty and no different from Architect of the Untamed in every way except constructed viability.

    The saving grace of the design is, I feel, that its conversion rate is actually very low. There are better ways to use energy with more immediate impact (the aforementioned Aetherworks Marvel springs to mind). I could see it being used as an uncounterable finisher to an infinite energy loop, perhaps?

    Quote from Creedmoor »
    I considered changing it to make it so you'd have to pay fifty energy to win, but then I realized how obnoxious that would look on a card. So generating fifty energy and having it stored is radical enough for this storm to net you a game.
    What do you mean? It looks fine to me.



    As an aside, I'm pretty sure Wotzee has stated they want to incentivise spending energy over hoarding it. I'll be surprised if they print something similar.

    It's probably undercosted, but fine. Clearly a solid, clean design. It doesn't excite me, but somebody will love it.

    Unmarked Grave - Boy could this ever get annoying. I'm not sure it's exactly degenerate as a sac outlet feeder since you only get one piece of fodder at a time, barring Paradox Haze shenanigans and activating abilities during your upkeep, but I'd really prefer this dropped the ETB ability and then had the upkeep trigger reference "Spirit tokens" instead of "Spirits" so the subtypes of the other creatures you pick don't randomly cripple your engine.
    That's actually a decent idea. My only design requirement here is "like Security Detail but not".

    Ravening Bloodlord - This would be completely acceptable even outside of Cube. Great extension of red's damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don't punisher capabilities, expensive enough not to be a Constructed worry if it were in a Standard-legal set... generally a good package.
    Yeah, the power level of this cube varies between "legitimately good" to "adorable but useless", skewing towards the later. I have lots of freedom to make what I want to be good actually good, but for now I'm just focused on making cute things.
    Quote from void_nothing »
    Silas Renn's Skull - Took me a moment to remember that Silas Renn was some Esperite mage, not a brooding Dark Jedi played by America's heartthrob Adam Driver. The scry ability is perfectly fine, if perhaps slightly durdly to do every turn on a relatively durable package. The Unlimited Wish is... something else, it's a pretty splashy and memorabe ability but seven mana paid in two installments is expensive. What do you get to pick from in a Cube situation, exactly? Do you have a real sideboard or could you dig into your collection?
    You get to dig through the rest of your pool, which perhaps means this is overcosted since it's probably not going to fetch you anything game breaking, but it's a flavour home run and I love it so much. Deepest lore. (For those not in the know, Silas Renn is an Esperite clockworker (deus-ex-machinamancer) and the guy whose severed head Tezzeret used to navigate the Sphinx Kamuel's maze.)

    I should just go ahead and rename this thing Chemtrails Talks about Cards with void_nothing.

    Just one weird one this time. I'm uncertain on the exact mechanics, but it'll be something like this:

    Chosen Maiden W
    Creature — Human
    2W, T, Tap two untapped creatures you control: Sacrifice Chosen Maiden, then return it to the battlefield transformed. Activate this ability only if you control a Mountain.
    1/1
    //
    Favor of the Volcano God
    Enchantment
    When Favor of the Volcano God enters the battlefield, it deals 3 damage to each opponent.
    Whenever a creature you control attacks, you may have Favor of the Volcano God deal 1 damage to target creature or player.

    Quote from void_nothing »
    Riteborn Demon - Sure. A lot going on but it's all kind of wrapped up neatly, and the Western psyche is hardwired to see patterns in threes, or something. Dread Return homage there?
    Let me take a moment to tell you about how aesthethically great this design actually is. Mana cost equals cumulative cost to make three Clerics, three having historical baggage in Magic (Dark Supplicant, Dread Return, Delraich). Six power, six toughness, six converted mana cost. Demons love six! Three coloured mana, three colourless mana, three Clerics. Six is a multiple of three. Triangles have three sides. Illuminati confirmed. Jokes aside, I think the narrative of a cult gathering to resurrect their long dead demon lord is resonant enough to cut through a lot of the mechanical baggage.

    Virulent Swarmlord - I love Swarmyard too.
    This guy originally made a 0/1 Plant, and then could put +1/+1 counters on tokens, but I decided Swarmyard Tribal is funnier.

    Maybe if I post more, I'll actually finish this thing? Here goes nothin'.

    Unmarked Grave W
    Enchantment
    When Unmarked Grave enters the battlefield, create 1/1 white Spirit creature token with flying.
    At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control no Spirits, create 1/1 white Spirit creature token with flying.

    Private Eye U
    Creature - Homunculus
    Private Eye can’t be blocked unless defending player player pays 2 for each creature blocking it.
    Whenever Private Eye deals combat damage to a player, investigate. (Put a colorless Clue artifact token onto the battlefield with “2, Sacrifice this artifact: Draw a card.”)
    1/1

    Ravening Bloodlord 3RR
    Creature - Vampire Berserker
    Haste
    Whenever Ravening Bloodlord deals combat damage to a player, put a +1/+1 counter on Ravening Bloodlord.
    Whenever Ravening Bloodlord deals combat damage to a creature, Ravening Bloodlord deals that much damage to that creature’s controller.
    3/3

    Silas Renn’s Skull 2
    Legendary Artifact
    1, T: Scry 1.
    5, T, Sacrifice Silas Renn’s Skull: Choose a card you own from outside the game and put it into your hand.
