    Legion Warboss, or Hanweir Garrison?

    The main problem is still the 2-for-1 if they remove your creature in response to the Ram Through. I think it's mostly lackluster.

    Wonderful analysis. This is exactly what I expected from you (hence frequently throwing ideas your way Tongue ).

    There's a reason Flash was banned/restricted in every format.

    Griselbrand wouldn't work though (not a big deal). "If you choose not to pay, the creature is sacrificed immediately. No player will get priority in between the creature entering the battlefield and being sacrificed. Sacrificing the creature this way will trigger any abilities that trigger when it leaves the battlefield, and those abilities will be put onto the stack at the same time as those that triggered when it entered the battlefield."

    I'm such a fan of your cube, going through the list/content every single day. So much cool/broken interactions! Love it!


    By this same deal I don't think flashing in Elesh Norn works either?

    Probably another Braids/Smokestack effect in black. Maybe a 4cc 'walker that has a Braids trigger as one of its abilities? IDK.

    Finishing the Horizon land cycle? Shard Triomes? Enemy Mirage fetches? Blue Wall of Omens? A catch-all enabling artifact that works in multiple combo decks? An Impact Tremors on legs? A Goblin Bombardment on legs? Magus of the Bond (Green Fastbond creature). Another Zuran Orb kind of effect?

    I don't know. I could design dozens and dozens of cards I'd like to see.

    I'm drooling at some of these...

    Nice to see some stats!
    2019 was certainly a big year for cube, with WAR/MH1/ELD!

    Without the first two lines, I wouldn't cube this. A 1/1 that can pump your board later isn't superb - Mirror Entity style.

    Due to the first two lines, I won't cube this. It's very polarising. Sometimes it does nothing and sometimes the oppoenent is just steamrolled.

    My M21 changes:

    Imposing Sovereign > Seasoned Hallowblade - a sidegrade, if anything. Sovereign is great, but maybe a secoond Adanto is better?
    Man-o'-War > Barrin, Tolarian Archmage - generally an upgrade overall
    Liliana's Triumph > Eliminate - Edict effects aren't superb in cube recently, while Eliminate will be solid I'm sure
    Robber of the Rich > Heartfire Immolator - a sidegrade, will do some testing to see
    Nightpack Ambusher > Garruk, Unleashed - More chonky resilient threats is always nice

    the 1UU will occasionally matter, but overall an upgrade over Manowar!

    Would have been perfect at 5cmc

    I'd cut the Nighthawk or Liliana amongst those.

    Pick 1 - Imposing Sovereign or Seasoned Hallowblade

    Pick 1 - Robber of the Rich or Heartfire Immolator

    Garruk, Unleashed - 2GG
    Legendary Planeswalker - Garruk
    Loyalty: 4
    +1: Up to one target creature gets +3/+3 and gains trample until end of turn.
    -2: Create a 3/3 green Beast creature token. Then if an opponent controls more creatures than you, put a loyalty counter on Garruk, Unleashed.
    -7: Create an emblem with “At the beginning of your end step, you may search your library for a creature card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.”

    I'm surprised this doesn't have a thread already. New Garruk looks pretty decent. I imagine most of the time it will come down and make a Beast to protect itself. Over time, it will either beatdown hard (+3/+3 and trample is big) or accrue more beaters.

    How does this card hold up in today's day and age? It's pretty decent as a constant source of attackers and is relatively hard to remove on first blush.

    Interesting archetype, but not quite enough enablers for my taste (i.e. non-creature creature makers like Bitterblossom)
