Quote from noshadowkickI'm convinced to test Awakening Zone in my cube. wtwlf, would you mind checking out my cube tutor list and suggesting a cut? I'm considering Basking Rootwalla or Vinelasher Kudzu. Boon Satyr may seem like the obvious cut, but it's still a sexy new card in my book so it's not on the chopping block just yet.
Quote from wtwlf123Frantic Search wasn't a great tempo card for us when we played it, more of a combo/reanimator card. But I do like that card; I'd never count it out forever.
Snap is decent, but I prefer my bounce to come with card parity in the cube. Silent Departure is a good tempo bounce choice if you're looking for another card to fill that role.
Quote from AznopiumCool, appreciate the thoughts as usual
thanks for the heads up on Silent Departure !
Quote from Petal CollectorGreetings!
I haven't gotten to cube in a while so I went ahead and drafted your list on CubeTutor. I feel like I didn't draft optimally, and now I can't decide how to build this deck. How would you (anybody) build this deck?
Quote from wtwlf123Your build looks pretty good. I might take Ajani and put it in the sideboard in favor of Flames of the Firebrand, and I think I'd drop Spear of the Heliod for Mirran Crusader.
With only 15 lands and both Armageddons, I'd probably drop Cursed Scroll in favor of another business spell (maybe the Soltari) because long-term activations will be a problem.
Quote from RecursionWtwlf123, I'm just curious are you named after White Wolf Publishing that used to make Jyhad/V:TES and D&D?
Quote from hopefulhawkeyeI'd worry about how creature light that deck is. If you don't hit either of your token producers you basically have a lot of draw/counters/burn. Which will only suffice for so long. I'd also add Hellspark Elemental since it's an elemental and combos with the Master in addition to getting in some much needed early damage in a creature-light deck.
Quote from wtwlf123Even outside of mono black, he's good enough in black decks that can cast him (even if it's later than turn 3). BB/x Pox/Stax decks, for example, make really good use of this guy. I'll play him in any black deck with enough sources of black to cast him. I mean, it's 7 power and 4 direct lifeloss for 3 mana.

Quote from Patrunkenphat7Is Carnophage better than Tormented Hero?
Quote from wtwlf123If he was a consistent 15th pick for you, don't play him. If you don't support heavy-black Pox/Stax decks, he's easier to leave out.
