Quote from ArcaneIn the MWS world, for many players, winning also makes you a noob.
The same applies to:
-Knowing the rules.
-Using old versions of a card (yeah, it has hapenned to me: "Ugh... ugly pic noob")
<@MarkRosewater> THis is a secret we've carefully guarded but for this chat I'm going to spill the beans.
<@MarkRosewater> Some cards in Magic are better than others.
<@MarkRosewater> Ssh, don't tell anyone.
Quote from bateleurWow, Lethal Vapors in a cube?! That's a favourite Casual card of mine, but I really don't see how you can play it in Limited.
Quote from calibretto...that's why i took out phyrexian negator. it just wasn't as good in this format.
Quote from ApexReally? Last time I checked, Negator destroys control decks that don't utilizes burn spell. Considering how a normal cube control deck (like a classic UW counter/draw/finisher) plays signet, draw, and then wrath, an early Negator can take off large chunks of life from your opponent. Backed up by stuff like disruption (which is what you should have drafted if you took the Negator), and accompanied by Hippie and his cousins, I've always found Negator to be the bane of control decks.
Quote from The Scientistanyways, last week we were only with 4 players. A normal draft isn't the best option then. However, a Rochester draft runs smoothly with only 4 players.
Also, I have tried Winston draft with the cube (fun) and even Sealed Deck with cube (fun as well), so combine at will.

Quote from Sigma-X »The important thing to know about Craig Wescoe is that he does not wash his hands after pooping.
My buddy and I witnessed this at a PTQ last summer. He did terrible things to the toilet and then just walked out the door like that's a thing.
I feel it is important to mention this as often as possible.
Quote from stiltskinI thought this was funny and I wanted to share this.
Player (a) casts hunted wumpus.
Player (b) plays akroma, angel of wrath for free
Then player (a) casts utopia vow targeting akroma.
Stiltskin says.. Thats how the pros play :).
Player (b) looks to me and smiles :D.
Player (b) casts otherworldly journey targeting akroma.
Quote from urzassedativesI played in the cube draft at Worlds last night, and one of the hilarious plays that happened was this:
Opponent casts Iwamori of the Open Fist. "Got any Legends?"
I drop Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni.
On my turn I Putrefy the Iwamori, swing with Ink-Eyes and take the Iwamori for myself.
Quote from DarkmindtoneThat was my Cube you played with at Worlds urzassedatives, and yes, Rimefeather Owl is very much a house there. Your deck looked good, and I'm glad you at least took a game from my friend Justin's mono-blue deck (that deck was pretty unfair, so congrats on that).
I was in the other pod for my Cube, and went RG Kird Ape/Tarmogoyf aggro. It was pretty sick, with 2 Fireballs, Char, a good creature curve, and mana disruption (Wasteland, Strip Mine, Molten Rain, and Plow Under) for the slower decks. Didn't drop a game with it.
The next Magic Show should have a pretty decent amount of Cube coverage from the public event for those of you interested.
Quote from SnoopDoggAtogMy friend says the number of multicolor spells should be no more than 10 percent of the total cube, because it will force color decisions that hurt the draft. I don't know, but I am more of the opinion that while too much multicolor forces archetypes and defensive drafting, too little multicolor means perfectly good support cards don't get played because splashing is discouraged. What is the consensus here?
Quote from SnoopDoggAtog Some other questions:
I have only one copy of any given card in my cube. I take it, that this is the norm. Are there any cube-worthy cards that need to be in multiples?
