Quote from tylorlilley »With Skyclave Apparition absolutely killing it in modern, I've been wanting to get him into my 540 power cube somehow. How have people who included him found him?
Is Skyclave Apparition better than Fiend Hunter or Gideon Blackblade for example? Only so many 1WW options to consider swapping him for...
Quote from wtwlf123 »Well making infinite creatures is pretty deece, so I can't say that it's weak with Intruder Alarm.
So ya, it's like a filler card ...that's also part of an infinite combo. More like a Voltaic Key kind of inclusion than a Dragon Fodder.
Have you actually played with/against the card in cube or are you just speculating? I was pretty skeptical, but the card has played far better than it looks. Ambushing attackers in green is surprising, making sorcery-proof Order fodder, works well in Ambusher flash shells, and it gets silly out of control when you have an army of critters at your disposal. I thought it was gonna be butt, but it's surprisingly versatile.
Quote from wtwlf123 »Sprout Swarm is an enabler for Polymorph and a combo card with Intruder Alarm. It's also a halfway decent token support card, and can provide sacrifice fodder in various decks. I treat it as an Xcc card, since it has so many different places in the curve it can be played at. All my Xcc spells I place at the top of my curve, which is why it's listed at 7.
Chord was cut after underperforming for a while. Fine card, but much weaker than the other creature tutors, IMO. Similar with Evolution. Fine card, but worse than the other options.
Quote from Patrunkenphat7 »Just want to mention that I’m also reading and enjoying this! Thanks for the hard work.
Quote from Argus Panoptes »Playing a modal double-faced card starts with choosing one face.
Finding one does not.
Quote from philo.jh »I see you cut Jace, Mirror Mage for Jace Beleren. Did you find Beleren better or did you add it back in because of the mill card from CMR? I've had Mirror Mage in my cube for a while, but haven't gotten a lot of reps with him. My gut says Jace Beleren is the superior card.
Quote from Cythare »Aw man, he was my cut for Tangled Florahedron, but I'll fiddle around with finding a replacement cut for Mayor too. Thanks!
