    I am a bit unsure about your calculations about Krenko. The fact that the tokens do not attack right away is a big disadvantage. Especially as Rabblemaster (and Krenko will end up eating removal pretty quickly in a lot of games. Calculating the goldfish damage value over six turns is a metric, but it is not the most realistic metric I think.

    To me Krenko's big advantage i the fact that he has synergies with a lot of power boosting cards. But does that offset the fact that he is quite a bit slower in most games ( where you never get 4 , 5 or 6 hits with him and his buddies.

    This seems pretty sweet in a Superfriends-style deck, no? 5-colour green with tons of Walkers?

    Mishra's Helix was pretty good in the beginning of our cube, back in 2009. Tinker will be less of a Tier 1 card, but it will be a good toolbox card, with a occasional I woin effect, instead of the other way round.

    We do get overlap with Aristocrats and stuff like Black-Green Aggro, Black-blue aggresive midrange, and the occasional Pox or land destroyer. The main problem are powerfull cards like Hymn, Smallpox, Stinkhole, Necro, Pox and other double (or triple) black cards that really push you in a certain mold. The same thing goes for zombie tribal. These can end up being very narrow decks to draft.

    A couple of months in this card is still going strong and getting praised every draft. We cannot imagine this card leaving our cube for years to come.

    So....

    1. Deranged Hermit
    2. Acidic Slime
    3. Thragtusk
    4. This thing

    Sound about right?

    I would still put Wolfir on 4. But that might depend on the cube. Wolfir tends to hit incredibly hard in green aggresive midrange builds. Add in some double strike or flying or hasters for double the fun.
    The two cards are hard to compare though as they play quite differently.

  • posted a message on [SCD] Cursed Scroll
    Cursed Scroll is an easy card to underestimate. It keeps doing what it has always done here. Being awesome in some situations, being mediocre in others. But it is a 1CC card that can sometimes take over the game. This is pretty rare. It's main roll here is the long game reach for aggro and also a part of our Burn achetype.

    I have doubted Scroll multiple times these last years, but then I put it in a deck and it just wins me games.

    Here it often functions as a second Rofellos. Which is pretty good in our book. Apart from that, it is a usual toolbox card.

    It is definetely not for every deck, but decks with Rofellos or other key cards can use this.

    The thing you have to remember is that it costs 1 mana to play! Is it the best token produceder around?No, but it only cost one mana to cast!

    And the mix of abilities means it does a lot more in practice then just pumping out 1/1's . It protects them from control magic effects, it makes a flying army in a stalemate, it stops lifelink,...

    We are giving her a test run. So far she has been pretty good (deck with Fastbond). More feedback when we get more plays under our belt.

    For now in addition, but we are looking how this plays out. Could be that all of them might be too many.

    Brain Freeze is too good to cut though. It kills very quick with some regrowth effects. Tendrils works fine with both the Tower and Reservoir, so we hope we don't have to make a choice Wink

    If anything it is more playable in unpowered. I don't see what Moxen and Lotus make of a difference for a card like this?

    Zephyr, I think you have misread our list? We do not run Jeskai Ascendancy.

    This card has been impressive. It ability is relevant and a 6/5 snipes planeswalkers like there is no tomorrow.

    Same as Vizzerdrix I think Emissary of Grudges will be in our cube for a while.

    Has played very good so far! The cheaper casting cost has been used (in both directions, as an attacker and in defence), it has been reanimated (tutored for being the fastest clock with entomb) and even plain hardcasted.

    12/12 tramplers are nothing to laugh about.
