Quote from Despez »I agree with everyone else. Library is nuts, but it's still preference. I have it in my nonpowered cube because my playgroup loves it, just like splinter twin combo. I would put Library in the "Mind Twist, Plow Under, Moat, True Name Nemesis" group of unfun/noninteractive cards.

Yeah, those cards are not remotely close to library. The only card remotely close to being better than library is sol ring IMO, with moxen and lotus being close but not defendable as "better."
Quote from Salmo »
I think they're very close and there are indeed spots where the library is the better card, but I think Sol Ring-Library-Lotus are all on the same tier with enough clear spots where Lotus is better that it is defendable as a better card, or at least I can see the arguments.
Quote from noshadowkick »All of this discussion comparing Library, Lotus, and Sol Ring really cements in my mind the fact that Library has absolutely not business in my cube.
Quote from wtwlf123 »And he had it really high in his 2018 power rankings for cube. Not sure what he feels changed.
But classifying something as overrated =! bad. I believe he thinks the card is good, but he thinks it's overrated by the community at large.
Quote from WoodWraithThey left out the part where Yawgmoth is resurrected,but has been cleansed as Yawgmoth the Redeemed,and now must awaken Chromium so that Karn can fuse with him and create what can only be known as : the ultimate taco.

Quote from calibretto »I wouldn't presume why LSV feels the way he does about cube inclusions. He's also said that Signets are better than Talismen because the Talismen "do damage to you."
Quote from LeyShade »If your cube is more aggro focused, has a lot of pain effects, or minimizes life gain then he's not wrong. I find that with cards that fill similar roles which is 'better' often comes down to how they interact with their environment.
Quote from calibretto »For sure. I wasn't trying to imply that he is somehow wrong, just that it's an unpopular opinion in the cube community, especially on these forums. Cube is what you make it and everyone has their preferences. We can all offer advice based on our own experiences, but at the end of the day preferring X to Y in cube will never be wrong if that choice is what you and your group prefer.
