Portable Hole is amazing. It will be one of the best Cube cards from the upcoming set.
Got rid of a late game 6/6 Fiend Artisan one game and got rid of Jitte another game. Used it a third time and don't remember but card is fantastic.
Portable Holey crap it is good.

May 9, 2021Are people not running Doom Blade variants anymore? If so I feel really out of it. I'm currently running Heartless Act, Go For The Throat and Doom Blade (plus Baleful Mastery) as instant kill spells at 540 powered. This replaces Doom Blade easily for me.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion
For those who have significantly cut down on these 2 mana kill spells what does your black removal suite look like?
I'm running Feed The Swarm and Bloodchief's Thirst as sorcery speed removal that costs 2 or less plus Hero's Downfall and 2 edict effects.
Not trying to threadjack but based on the above comment I want to ensure I'm not missing anything.
Apr 14, 2021Love this card. I've definitely seen it grow into a monster when the opposing player didn't have an answer.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Often it ends up as a great value card for any green-based aggro/midrange deck. It is the best nonland card in that tricolor.

Interesting. All you need is GGG and you can get a ton of dudes. Haven't run Channel in a long time but this card is definitely a point in its favor.
Apr 10, 2021Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype DiscussionQuote from NotScottMescudi »Honestly, I don't think this looks great, but Agadeem's Awakening has been so disappointing that I'd be happy to try this out as another aggro beater and token-producer in black instead. Just the possibility of being a decent aggro threat, a midrange token producer, and a possible UB control payoff excites me enough that I think this is worth the test. Black 3s are good but they certainly aren't stacked enough not to test this
This is the exact swap I made. I've only seen the Witch in one match and it's done more than Awakening did in months.

This is one of the reasons I added Nature's Claim to my 540. I thought the lifegain made it unplayable but having a 1 mana instant speed answer as a naturalize with virtually zero downside has been worth it. I'm glad to have the Claim alongside this new card.
New card can really blow out the artifact heavy decks but by the time it gets online for a ton of destruction it will be late game.
Apr 7, 2021Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype DiscussionQuote from mook1e »Anything with haste in Red grabs my attention as they accelerate the clock for aggressive decks. This one is definitely lives up to that hype and gives potential card advantage!
Definitely slotting this in for Hanweir Garrison in my cube.
This card is the real deal and likely will be the top Cube card in this set. I also swapped it for the Garrison and I'm thrilled so far.
Apr 7, 2021Did some playtesting last night with a few cards including Laelia. Opponent attacked with it and a Robber of the Rich so he was drawing cards as the red deck which was pretty awesome. It just hits so hard and quickly grows to be huge.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Laelia seems like it may competing to be the best red 3 drop in the Cube. Bold statement I know but I think it is definitely in the conversation.
I was really impressed.

Elite Spellbinder for Gideon of the Trials
Abundant Harvest for Once Upon A Time
Sinister Dominance for Snuff Out

Leonin Lightscribe for Remorseful Cleric
