Mar 19, 2018Degalmer still targets, so it can’t “kill” Sphinx of the Steel Wind.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
There’s no “colorless ability” involved with Degalmer / Oblivion Ring. O-Ring can remove Emrakul because it’s being targeted by a triggered ability, not a spell.

2 - Vizier of the Menagerie vs Conclave Naturalists vs Whisperwood Elemental vs Wolfir Silverheart ? What order ?
3 - Pick one: Consuming Vapors vs Black Sun's Zenith vs Dark Salvation ? What order ?
4 - Pick one: Devil's Play vs Volcanic Hammer ?
Jailer > Faith's Fetters > Quarantine Field. Palace Jailer is a huge bomb and is very abusable, it's very worth the risk.
Not too happy with any of these, but gun to head: Whisperwood Elemental = Vizier of the Menegerie > Wolfir Silverheart = Conclave Naturalists. I feel like you could do much better in the 4-5 cmc green slot though.
Consuming Vapors > Dark Salvation > Black Sun's Zenith. Yahenni's Expertise is a lot more useful than BSZ if you're looking for another sweeper.
Volcanic Hammer >>> Devil's Play. Incendiary Flow is a strictly better Volcanic Hammer if you're already maxed out on Incinerate variants.
Mar 15, 2018Control Magic is always a 2 for 1 and can often be a huge tempo swing. It’s fragile, sure but it’s also an evasive threat and has all the synergies of being a creature. I would never consider cutting Sower from my cube.Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype Discussion
Other Control Magic effects are either too expensive, too conditional (Threads of Disloyalty), or have too much of a drawback (Kefnet’s Last Word). Control Magic / Sower of Temptation / Treachery / Vedalken Shackles are all stone cold staples in my book.
Mar 14, 2018Fractured Identity = insane power and valuePosted in: Cube New Card Discussion
Teferi = average power and value
Azorius is a great example of mono vs multicolored utility cards and how they relate to cube. While Detention Sphere / Supreme Verdict are just slight upgrades to boring cards like Oblivion Ring / Day of Judgment, those are key effects in general. The bigger the cube becomes, the more important those roleplayer cards are. A lot of my card ranking is based on the needs of the cube at X size. Teferi ain’t plugging any holes for me unless my cube becomes insanely large. The card is nowhere near my radar, Azorius has so many more useful options.
Mar 14, 2018I don’t think this card is so much better than Jace that I’d spend an Azorius slot over it. My cube would have to be pretty huge for me to consider Teferi and the blue slot will be more open than the Azorius slot at that point. Just because Detention Sphere is better than the other O-Ring variants doesn’t mean I’m running it over them.Posted in: Cube New Card Discussion
Here’s how I currently rank the Azorius cards:
- Fractured Identity
- Geist of Saint Traft
- Supreme Verdict
- Reflector Mage
- Detention Sphere
- Dragonlord Ojutai
- Spell Queller
- Sphinx’s Revelation
- Teferi, Hero of Dominaria
The bar is extremely high for multicolored planeswalkers and Azorius cards / colors in general. Teferi does absolutely nothing special and has no specific niche nor offers any archetype support.
Mar 13, 2018Posted in: Cube Card and Archetype DiscussionQuote from Nm31Br13 »I love O-ring effects for the meme plays with upheaval. When you banishing light your Brimaz, King of Oreskos then upheaval you feel pretty good. Its not a crazy combo since you pretty much scream "I have upheaval" when you exile your own dude, but still loads of fun.
I played a couple other card games over the years and nothing really sticks. Nothing lets me express myself the way cube in magic does.
The only game that came close was wizkids Pirates csg but that's long dead.
This doesn't work with Banishing Light since it can only target an opponent's permanents. Oblivion Ring, sure.
