    I still see a lot of people running her - Does she work>


    Well, if the card didn't perform, people wouldn't run it. Wink As always, if your group doesn't like it, cut it.

    It hits hard for a 4-drop, and also helps to support a token/anthem deck if you support that package. Despite its vulnerabilities, if it isn't answered immediately, it pressures like few other 4cc cards can, and leaves something behind if it gets a couple of chances to crash in.

    It's not a must-include card, but it's good at its job if you want that kind of effect.

    Even if this was unblockable, would you play it?

    Show and Tell has a notorious reputation on Magic online because of the high risk of giving your opponent a fatty and sees little play due to that. However, this card plays out differently in paper because you greatly reduce the amount of fatties available for your opponents as you're picking them up yourself, or hate-drafting them, which from my experiences make the card quite valid.

    Thoughts?


    This is my experience with it too. It's far better in a paper cube than an online cross-pod draft for exactly the reasons you mentioned.

    This didn't age so well.


    It didn't? It's 6 years old and it's still pretty accurate, lol.

    Since I made that list, we got Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Fiery Confluence (not to mention a slew of new 3-drops that outpace it for damage) and the need for Koth has lessened.

    Enjoyed that episode. Totally agree with your reasoning on why cube is the best format.

    Maybe try to find room for Angel of Mercy? Smile


    Thanks!

    Angel is a beautiful card, and probably my favorite aesthetically ...but I just can't cube it, lol.

    Thanks for posting!

    1. Yes, red aggro is great. We win with mono red aggro and R/x aggro (boros, rakdos, and even gruul) all the time. It's one of the most played and most successful decks in the cube. All of those decks play the full suite of 2/1 creatures for 1 mana.

    2. The 1-drop zombies are for black aggro and for black stax. I just went undefeated in a draft event last weekend with mono black that had both carnophage and diregraf ghoul in it. Here's a link to the deck: https://twitter.com/wtwlf123/status/1477034449447514113 . Unlike Knight, these aggro creatures can bash for 2 on their own in the early game without any additional stipulations/mana investments, and they enable gravecrawler.

    I'm glad you're enjoying the cube!

    It has the flexibility of being able to be played in both, which is why it's generally more playable than something like Bridge. It can win races with the surprise factor, it can buy time in control without preventing you from counter-attacking with your finishers, AND it can be used as a lock piece in decks with Loam/Crucible effects available. Constant Mists is a good card. The reason I don't play it is that it's too feast or famine for my tastes, in addition to being just a miserable card to play with/against.
