    This card is super good, and I’m going to predict it plays better than Hero of Bladehold in practice, despite it having a lower ceiling in terms of raw damage. Creating evasive tokens and being evasive itself is huge, not to mention, potentially creating a token the turn it comes into play. I’m definitely including this.

    Thanks wtwlf for the great write up. I know I'm not on MTGS much these days, but I still come back for your cube lists each set.

    We draft four people all the time. We do packs of nine, and just draft regularly. Works well for us. I don’t think I’d want to have a small cube for that purpose, as it gets pretty boring seeing the exact same cards every time. My cube is 500 cards btw.

    What are your favourite cards in Magic?

    For me, because I've been playing since 1994, many of my favourite cards are older ones. Because of this, when I started my main cube, I knew I had to include cards from the start of Magic. Since then, many of my favourite cards have become less playable in my main cube due to rising power levels, particularly among creatures. This has lead to me creating a "Classic" cube, consisting of only old border cards.

    Basically,.my suggestion is to build a cube that is the intersection (on a Venn diagram) of your favourite cards, the cards in your budget.

    All that said, many people really like the challenge of building a cube around restrictions such as rarity, or sets or whatever. If that appeals to you, then by all means.

    Nice, I wish I hadn't traded away my Arabian Nights City of Brass to help pay the rent when I was unemployed a few years back Frown
    I run this alter now:


    I had no idea that ARN Serendib Efreet was so expensive these days. I still have one kicking around since he got cut from my cube.

    Nice rishadan port alter! Yeah I've done a few gold bordered cards in my time. Some of them you can't even tell after the extension. The force of will on my page, for example, was gold bordered.

    Some alters I did for someone's cube (they are technically a MTGS cube forum member, but they haven't been around here recently). The Recurring Nightmare is a new style for me, which I borrowed from Galspanic.

    Also, an AT ST for my own satisfaction (had to be done).

    That VoR is nice looking. It's a surprisingly difficult regular extension to make lok clean; they did a good job with it.

    Speaking of really clean extensions, Juju: Post the Ash Barrens I commissioned from you. It's one of the cleanest fade to black traditional extensions I've seen in a while.


    Thanks man Smile here it is, as well as a Volrath's Stronghold I did for someone else's cube.
