Quote from ZovcIn Standard, you can use up to four copies of any legal card, and as many copies of any basic land you'd like. So why not allow up to four of any given card in a cube? Don't really feel like using one (previously) "unofficial" format as the basis of your argument is especially sound.
Not trying to be abrasive if it came off that way. But I feel like cube design is open ended and the "rules" themselves are interesting to tinker with (and add/remove).
Quote from pkeduits good to have rules to define a format.
Quote from FlowerSunRain A rule specifically barring multiples accomplishes nothing.
Quote from wtwlf123Except, you know, creating a format you're interested in. It accomplishes that for me. Just like people excluding rares from their c/u cubes, I exclude multiples from my singleton cube. It'd be like saying building a c/u cube accomplishes nothing.
Quote from ZovcDo you play functional reprints?
Do you wish there were more functional reprints of certain cards?
If so, you're already subconsciously "wanting" to get rid of the singleton rule. You're just giving R&D some accidental authority over how many copies of a given effect are allowed in your cube.
Quote from FlowerSunRain »What?
It's no more illogical for singleton legal cubes to exclude multiples than it is for a legacy legal cube to exclude power, a modern legal cube to exclude old-frame cards or a pauper/peasant cube to exclude rares.
Quote from wtwlf123Pretty self explanatory. You say that a rule barring multiples accomplishes nothing. I say it accomplishes the same thing as barring rares does. People build common/uncommon cubes because that's the kind of environment they're interested in. We make our cubes singleton for the same reason. It's what we want to draft. Period.
Quote from wtwlf123You said barring multiples accomplishes nothing. I don't agree.
Quote from FlowerSunRainYour point doesn't address the content of what I said, much like your response in the other thread didn't either. Also your summary of my point completely misrepresents what I said.
Quote from wtwlf123Then clearly I'm having a hard time discerning what your point is in either thread.
You said both: not running multiples but playing function reprints is logically inconsistent and that barring multiples accomplishes nothing. Seems pretty clear what you mean.
Please explain what I'm missing.
Quote from wtwlf123So if that context doesn't sum up how you feel about not running multiples, how do you feel? It seemed very clear that those summaries were exactly how you felt about people that don't like the idea of cubing with multiples. Do you no longer think there's a "logical inconsistency" with wanting to run functional reprints but not multiples? Do you think there's something to be accomplished in barring multiples from a cube? Or not?
Quote from FlowerSunRainI have not in either of these threads given my opinion on whether or not any particular person should or should not run multiples, including myself.
Quote from wtwlf123Wanna share that now? Maybe knowing what your stance is will help me understand what it is you're trying to say.
No. As it isn't relevant to this discussion, it would not.
Quote from wtwlf123So... your opinion on running multiples isn't relevant to the discussion in the "Multiple Copies of Cards in Cube" thread.
Haha okay bro.
