    I'd second the vote for Garruk over Vraska. Though I'd play Deathrite Shaman over either of the planeswalkers.



    This. Thumbs Up
    With a gun to my head, I'd run Garruk, but DRS beats the pants off both of them, hands down. I'd trade Garruk for one in a heartbeat. Smile


    that's really interesting to me! i've always had the impression that DRS wasn't a good fit with cube due to inconsistent fetchlands, but if so many people are in support I'll throw him in and give him a chance. would DRS > garruk, apex/vraska still hold true in my 380 powered cube?

    Vraska the Unseen
    Bayou
    Overgrown Tomb

  • posted a message on Unearth
    I ran unearth for a while when I first came across it and was blown away by its value. However, after playing through several drafts with it (and living the dream of reanimating a dark confidant) I have to say I ended up pretty disappointed with the card. The card is utterly fantastic on paper, but it ended up falling short of our expectations in practise. I think the biggest problem with unearth is that it is too "conditional". While the argument could be made that Unearth is a "second copy" of your best card (similar to how tutors are perceived), the problem is that you:
    a) have to draw and play your business creature
    b) have it die
    c) have unearth in hand to play it again

    I found unearth sitting in my hand as a dead card more often than I would've liked and ended up cutting it a while back from my 380 powered cube.

    Quote from ahadabans »

    I agree with Cythare on all rankings. Also, you didn't ask but IMO Razormane Masticore > Masticore > Molten-tail. For what it's worth. Razormane is bigger, has first strike, and his direct damage effect is free which allows you do cast other things (even though it only targets creatures).



    I'm hurt that you dislike Molten-Tail so much OMG

    I think Razormane's biggest flaw (coincidentally maybe also why I've seen so little of it in other people's cubes) is because the damage it deals is not repeatable. Masticore's biggest strength is being able to waste your turn machinegunning your opponent's creatures down before swinging in to deal some damage. Razormane will at most be able to take out one creature a turn, which ends up being more swingy than controlly than Masticore. However, Molten-Tail's strength is as a finisher. This dude can start shooting to the face as soon as he lands, and can be protected (regeneration) to use for following turns.

    Razormane is something I could be tempted to try in my 380, but both OG Masticore and Molten Tail have locked in spots (even in a powered cube).

    (I'm also a bit biased because I ran a Grand Architect deck back in SOM T2 ft. Molten Tail Masticore)

  • posted a message on [[SCD]] Oath of Druids
    ever since I added Oath a couple months back its become my new favourite UG deck. My last iteration, I ran it with 4 fatties (including one out of my colours), along with a counterspell/draw and ramp suite. The goal of the deck was to draw into oath and go off that, or else ramp into my fatties if Oath was disrupted. Pretty strong deck, and really fun to draft when you realize you're sitting on all the pieces.

    don't do it truesight. just get a job (or better yet, travel abroad and get a part time job there).

    I've always felt that I'm alone in thinking that FNM Evolving Wilds is one of the most beautiful arts in all of magic. Have you guys SEEN this thing? the details are positively gorgeous: http://i.imgur.com/KTryySU.jpg

    On another note, have you guys seen the new Duress art? I'm running a M12 foil right now and a screaming dragon comes pretty close to replacing a scared elf.

    whenever i hear of you guys sitting at 400+ making cuts and complaining about how hard it is i laugh inside. i run 380 and every new set is like pulling (my) teeth. i'm close to just giving up on updating and keeping my cube in one state. i was thinking this way i would be able to rotate "packages" in and out of my cube from existing archetypes to keep things fresh. maybe if i get it down i'll write a primer of some kind.

    Geist of Saint Traft (promo) @32

    These are cash prices at a store near me where magic isn't really played/prices are updated seldom. My concern is that they're cash prices - how easy would it be to move these into their newly spiked prices?

    why is the pack foil so stagnant? i would've thought it'd grow in price with the promo (i think the pack foil is rarer as well?)
