Quote from Konfusius7 of you guys who are reading this because you spend quite some time in the cube forum, in order to improve your own cube by sharing ideas, thoughts and experiences. There are a lot of interesting people and great magic players in the world, but who can match the love for cube better than fellow cube owners?
Quote from GoodkingI'd like to Cube with anyone from the Cube forum really. We have a good sub-community going on here and I'd relish the opportunity to actually play MtG with people other than my partner!
Quote from rantipole1. Evin Erwin
2. Tom LaPille
3. Aaron Forsythe
6. silent edge
7. Tori Amos (any excuse to meet her)
No offense meant to others on this forum. I just find myself most often agreeing with wtwlf, calibretto, and silent edge, so I'd want to meet them and get a chance to sling some cardboard.
Quote from FoxBatI'm in the philly area and was debating going for the side events, I've never cubed before and this would push me over the edge to head out there. Is there a good time range to show up, I definitely wouldn't want to miss some cubing. Oh and how do we all find you?
Quote from knuckles29I'm asking this as a general:
Do the new ZEN common non-basics Kabira Crossroads and others warrant an inclusion if room can be found? I'm asking because of adding the Map. I would count Desert instead of the Piranha Marsh and add the other 4.
Quote from MemnarchI had a preordered box of Zendikar come through another website (MagicInferno). The price was about $105 shipped and it got to my place the Monday after the release. I'm rather pleased with their service, and I'm glad I chose this route rather than eBay (where, undoubtedly, having gone to one of the other groups would have cost me time and the now-jacked prices of a box).
Quote from UsmanTo be honest, I think Minotaur compares more to Spur Grappler than Fault Riders.
I think Minotaur's underrated, I dunno if it makes the cut in a powered cube, but it's certainly worth a look in a pauper one.
Quote from knuckles29does that mean Spur Grappler-> Minotaur?
Quote from argusRare-B-Gone is the most underrated card in my cube. It usually tables but when I played it was a massive blowout. Balance is nothing compared to Rare-B-Gone which kills planeswalkers, lands and hands. It needs some building around, namely running more un/commons and really makes R/B an appealing combination!
Quote from eidolon232Sure, you want to have the Recluse? There is already a huge number of Spiders in your cube and I would prefer my 6 drop having more than 1 toughness.
Patron of the Wild (also costs 6 mana) would be one of the cards I could see cutting in favor of Mold Shambler.
Quote from knuckles29Have you updated your list either on blog or 1st post?
also, I cut Thornweald Archer for Recluse
Quote from eidolon232W:
U: Sky Ruin Drake is nothing I would associate with cubeing
R: the Zetkar Shrine Expedition-Token still dies to a 1/1 first striker without dealing any damage, after you have waited 7 turns to trigger it (if you have topdecked it without lands in your hand).
Khalni Heart Expedition: this card isn't worth playing without landfall, because for thinning only you need to draw 23 cards to get back the card you have invested, even if you can trigger the expedition on turn 5.
situation:5 lands and 7 nonlands on t5
without expedition: 12 lands and 16 nonlands left in the deck.
after 23 additional turns: 23*(16/(16+12))=13,1 nonland cards drawn -> 20,1 nonland cards drawn
with expedition. 7 lands and 6 other nonland permanents on t5
after 23 additional turns: 23*(16/(16+10))=14,1 nonland cards drawn -> 20,1 other nonland permanents drawnand this is alreadythe best case scenario...
t: Expedition Map should work out great with the utility lands
Quote from klugI like most of your includes but hate most of the cuts. I'd take a second pass to look for weaker cards, ie; cutting Lash Out, those white cards is a mistake.
Quote from knuckles29i've spent some time thinking about this and i wanted to get your opinion.
Mold Shambler's main advantage over Nantuko Vigilante and Wickerbough Elder is the ability to hit lands, since there are no planeswalkers here
Nantuko and Wickerbough can be played at 5 mana, Shambler is a 6
Nantuko has 3 modes (morph, 3/2, and all in), the Elder is a 4cc 3/3, and a 5 mana 4/4..
Is either A) Mold Shambler worth a slot as a 3rd disenchant on a stick; or B) replaceable of Vigilante?
