    Voracious Hydra is really flexible, easiest include here.

    Rotting Regisaur is definitely worth testing since I like discard outlets and massive creatures. Mandatory repeated discard may be too much though.

    Mu Yanling is fun but don't think I have space.

    Kytar is probably better than Soulfire Grand Master so will be making that swap.

    So the modes are:

    GG: 0/1
    1GG: 1/2 + Fight OR 2/3
    2GG: 2/3 + Fight OR 4/5
    3GG: 3/4 + Fight OR 6/7
    4GG: 4/5 + Fight OR 8/9
    5GG: 5/6 + Fight OR 10/11

    and so on.


    This looks good to me. I like versatile removal and the stats get quite above curve at 5 mana and up if you go that route. Will test this out.

    That is a lot of cards!

    Interested to hear how Shenanigans and Force of Virtue play out.

    Just cross posting here from the other thread:

    Well that sucks. Been posting here since the early days of cube. Although less so recently, I've still been checking for spoiler reactions. Thanks to all the regulars and not-so-regulars for years of enjoyment.

    Please everyone let us know where are folks migrating to, will miss a friendly cube community.

    Can folks provide or pm me the discord link, i don't have twitter so will be out of the loop!

    I like Release the Gremlins as red's 'non creature' artifact removal spell, but this might be worth a look instead. Definitely nice to be able to topdeck a Shatter when needed. In powered cubes artifact removal is very rarely dead.

    In what way does it warp draft or cube construction?

    This circumvents hexproof/shroud/indestructible in its overload state, so seems like a very powerful one-sided sweeper combined with a Declaration in Stone/PtE alt-mode. I may try this out.

    This is great value as a reactive creature. Elf, Human or a number of token types could be carnage against some board states. Even as a 2/2 deathtouch that snipes an x/1, that's an ok deal for 3 mana. Like a better Dark Salvation.

    The activated ability is far more narrow than Goblin Welder's, but the built-in artifact Entomb is pretty spicy. I'll have to think on this one for a bit. Might be a worthwhile card.

    This is more of a utility effect chainer than a bomb enabler, right? Welder can drop Battlespheres and Wormcoils into play if you can bin them whereas this guy seems better suited for flipping Winter Orbs and Tangle Wires and Powder Kegs and stuff in and out of play; and he's a lot better at it because he can "tutor" for one of the pieces you're trying to chain.

    Not to mention that it can just drop a Sword of Fire and Ice into the 'yard and swap out a mox or something for it. Or even be used as a "discard outlet" in reanimator decks where I can just Entomb a fat reanimation artifact target from my graveyard and set up reanimation on the next turn. Especially sweet with a follow-up Recurring Nightmare.

    I might test this, it looks interesting.


    Pretty much my thoughts too. He's a value engine and he also fetches his own fuel. Seems like a very high ceiling even if he turns out a bit too cute.

    I feel like the Boros one is particularly attractive since it tends to be aggressive as a pairing, but doesn't have a lot in the way of card draw. These would surely be good in any guild though and are around the top options for most guilds post-ABU/shocks/fetches. The manlands, fastlands and cycle duals are also good depending on the guild.

    I don't run Deranged Hermit but this looks very good. Will find room at the expense of Whisperwood Elemental.

    Teferi's Puzzle Box is a pretty mean combo piece in that vein.

    Neilsen is my favourite Magic artist. I wasn't aware of any controversy behind her until googling it just now. I'm happy to separate the art from the artist as someone put it above.

    On the UMA box-toppers: I use the Tasigur one since it was very cheap to come by and looks good. Ancient Tomb is a solid choice and the UMA pack foil is great too.

    I haven't played Edict for a while, but with the new ways to cheat things in that we added over the last year or two, I have thought about readding it. So it's a definite maybe. The little discard boost is going to be more relevant than the self-sac; can't recall doing that more than once ever.
