Quote from JinxedIdol »Ultimately snow is a mechanic too linear for a cube.
The only thing it has going is snow basics, so when evaluating snow cards, you can approximate by snow=basics. Personally I wint change my basics to snow just for a few cards that can easily be out powered by non snow cards in the next sets.
Not looking to argue that at all but I would argue that you can run 'good' Snow cards without 'going snow' in your cube. That's what I have attempted to do (it required a rules change/house rule) but it hasn't really caused any problems or linearity. Some of them are just generically good cards.
Reidane is another one I will probably test out. Overlooked her in my post above. Thanks for reminding me!
