    I got some insane cube pimpage this year that i'm extremely happy and thankful for - thanks santa! unfortunately i was so excited that i sleeved and shuffled the cards into my cube straight away :p i'll try and dig them out tomorrow and get them all together for a nice photo.

    on another note, i'm waiting on a straggler cards to arrive at my place and i'll ship out. might be a while to reach my giftee but it'll be worth it!

    fair enough. i like the idea of being able to randomly combo the miracles with vampiric/mystic tutors, but the interaction probably isn't common enough. thanks for the advice

    hey wtwlf,

    i noticed you've cut all the miracle cards (terminus, bonfire, entreat) from your cube. were they underperforming even at 540? i was doing a sweep through my list recently and settled on terminus as a potential cut, but im surprise you removed bonfire and entreat as well. they always seemed to play well with the mystic/vampiric tutor + sensei's top.dec. which cards did they get replaced by?

    i had a similar idea when i first started putting my cube together. to focus my thinking, i tried to support classic standard archetypes, and some naturally cool fits came up; things like astral slide (cycling) and madness. check those decks out!

    i only need to cut one card to fit this back into my cube... im thinking verdict? though you recommended two cuts. do you have another WB card that i'm missing that should go there?

    i'm glad this topic was brought back up. couldn't you just run your wishboard as whatever leftover cards you have from drafting? the way I play is winchester drafting with extra packs to make decks smoother - I think running wishes would be a fun way to diversify the tutors.

    help me make a cut for my WB section! I run a 380 powered list so things are fairly tight.

    sorin, lord of innistrad
    gerrard's verdict
    lingering souls
    vindicate
    shambling vent
    scrubland
    marsh flats
    godless shrine

    I recently acquired a Shambling vent for my cube, and i'm struggling with a cut decision. is the right cut here gerrard's verdict? or am i missing something else?

  • posted a message on [[SCD]] Spell Pierce
    i'm surprised so many people cut spell pierce... i've run it in my 380 cube since day one, and it arguably plays a stronger role with each release. with the powershift over to planeswalkers, having a 1 mana answer to a ton of stuff (planeswalkers, equipment, big sorceries, etc.) is extremely handy. I view spell pierce as a pithing needle - it's never, ever going to be a dead card. since my cube went to powered, it's been that much more useful on the T1 plays (and with the added emphasis on artifacts). definitely run it!

    i love that, even though my cube is quite mature, i am still constantly discovering new and powerful interactions!

    last night purphoros + meloku made an appearance... that was a lot of instant speed damage to the face!

    Game day Languish is awesome!

    So pack foil Snapcaster Mage or rptq https://i.imgur.com/SgKVWaF.jpg ?

    New Snapcaster... hear me out.....
    The old one is familiar and what we are used to, but in terms of what the card is/does the new one captures that dynamic energy so much better. The old one is one of the most stiff and flat images on widely played cards. I absolutely hate the old art because of the awkward pose, the cheesy "Mega Man Arm" thing, the even cheesier "Doctor Von Sciency" Monocle crap on his face, the forced framing of the character on the half-way mark of the illustration, and the general lack of diagonal movement that keeps things super rigid. I've thought the old art was a train wreck and needed a more fitting image since it was spoiled.

    The new guys misses the mark on color - being dominated by lime green - and has some of the "small guy" issues that most creatures with flash have. He does, however, look like he's doing something exciting. He does look like he's doing magic, and there's a general movement and contrast in the design that the original lacks.

    Too bad it's only in Foil. Slant


    i'm with you. i always found the old Snapcaster art to be really boring, and after seeing what happened to Bob, I was secretly holding my breath for a new Snapcaster art. While the new one isn't SUPER amazing, I certainly prefer it to the old art. I'm also a big fan that its coming out in foil. The only problem is that the new art reminds me of a soccer player... but it'll do if I can find one for relatively cheap!

    how have you been finding the two Kioras? if you had to pick one of the two to run... which would you choose?

    i'm currently running a 380 cube so I'd hate to run two UG planewalkers at the same cost. i'm leaning towards the old Kiora due to her kickass art and sweet ultimate, but I haven't played with the new one yet. thoughts?

    PS. my simic section is looking like:

    Trygon Predator
    Edric
    Kiora, Crashing Wave/Kiora, Master of Depths
    Mystic Snake/Lumbering Falls (I think this is the right cut for Falls)

    I'm a huge fan of Oath, and I regularly force UG counter decks feat. Oath + Natural Order.

    Is gemstone mine really that hot of a card? I've never really given it much thought in the past... Is it really better than say Grand Coliseum/City of Brass/Mana Confluence in a 380 cube?

    on another note, i'm contemplating resleeving my entire cube with KMC hyper mats (currently in gold dragonshields). i am having the darndest time figuring out what colour to use as my original vision was to use a non-MTG colour for the sleeves (and the hyper mat purple is a bit too light for me). any recommendations on a KMC sleeve colour, or other sleeves that are as reputable + have more unique colours?


    It's tough to find an off-color mtg sleeve because most sleeves' colors were made with said colors in mind. It's slightly important to note that certain colors have properties which are different to others, which makes them more durable/flexible (basically longer-lasting). I tend to favor the red Hypermats. I find the color red to be pretty solid and durable (from years of experimenting). But that's my personal opinion.


    If I had seen this earlier I would have chimed in. I really think that any dark color looks awesome with the Hypermats. I had a set (for a deck not a entire cube) of dark purple that looked incredible . I'm currently using the HYPERmat blue for the cube and Super Silvers for the tokens. Blues simply cause it's my favorite color and silvers because it's what I had.


    in the end, i found a good deal with green and went with those. i was ready to go with purple (the only non MTG colour in the hyper mat line), but I couldn't find them at the price i wanted. Plus the purple looked really light, which was a bit of a put-off for me. Are they really that dark? i've never seen them in person (or even pictures of them).

    The sleeves in my pic a few posts up are purple hyper MATs. They're a pretty deep and rich purple, I'd take a picture right now but they're in storage right now since i'm moving. Price on them was good too, 36 dollars for 7 packs.


    It's a bit tricky to see the colours since it's only the tops of sleeves :p when you get them unpacked, i would greatly appreciate if you could post up another pic of the sleeves themselves. That price is really good too - I believe I got my green sleeves at that price, and i'd be happy to switch them again if i could get good looking purples for that price.
