    Unpowered dilemma: Hymn to Tourach or Mind Twist?

    Quote from nShinFF »
    Black Vise vs Cursed Scroll vs Ankh of Mishra?

    And how many of these should I have in a 500ish powered cube? I'm currently only running Cursed Scroll but I'm thinking about adding more support for aggro decks. Cubetutor link of my cube: http://www.cubetutor.com/viewcube/116289

    Thanks in advance.


    Imho Ankh of Mishra > Cursed Scroll, and i wouldn't play Black Vise.

    Could you suggest one or two cuts from blue and one from green?

    (been thinking about Finks for green thanks to the advent of Knight of Autumn)

    Thanks for the list. Having not many slots for green aggro 1-drops I think i’ll try to abuse hybrid drops (Dryad Militant and Tattermunge Maniac) which then means i’ll try to slot in only 2 1-drops (Kessig Prowler and Pelt Collector based on your list).

    That being said, do you have any experience with any Llanowar Elves/Fyndhorn Elves being played in your green aggro/tempo decks?

    Hi! Attempting to support the Green Aggro/Tempo archetype in a small cube (200) here. I have two questions:
    1) How do mana dorks fit into these archetypes?
    2) I think I only have room for 3 aggro/tempo 1-drops. Assuming Wolfbitten Captive is the best (not sure of that tho), which non-dork 1-drop package is the best to include?
    -Growing 1-drops (Pelt Collector, Experiment One)
    -2/1 for 1 (Jungle Lion, Kessig Prowler)

    Ye, I'd cut mortars too.

    I wasn't actually interested in discussing about the Lifegain archetype. I just wanted to make a list of all cube cards which also can gain life. I don't want too much lifegain either, but I like the idea of having some anti-aggro cards here and there.

    Hi! I'm opening this thread in order to develop a list of all the cube-playable Lifegain cards.

    Here's what i can get from the tip of my tongue:

    WHITE: Mardue Woe Reaper; Seeker of the Way; Lone Missionary; Baneslayer Angel; Lyra Dawnbringer; Glory-Bound Initiate; Exalted Angel; Angel of Invention; Fumigate; Gisela, the Broken Blade; Ajani Goldmane
    BLUE: //
    BLACK: Liliana, Heretical Healer; Vampire Nighthawk; Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet; Whip of Erebos; Consuming Vapors; Griselbrand; Collective Brutality
    RED: //
    GREEN: Courser of Kruphix; Thragtusk; Scavenging Ooze
    Multi: Kitchen Finks, Ajani Vengeant, Deathrite Shaman, Soulfire Grand Master, Lightning Helix; Sphinx of the Steel Wind; Huntmaster of the Fells; Siege Rhino; Sorin, Lord of Innistrad; Shambling Vent
    Colorless: Umezawa's Jitte; Sword of Light and Shadow; Sword of War and Peace; Batterskull; Wurmcoil Engine

    What's missing? (i'll update the list as new suggestions come forward)

    Don't cut Thirst for Knowledge as it's good with artifacts. I think Deep Analysis, Repeal, Into the Roil and Waterfront Bouncer can go

    Opposition would be a fine cut for it. Card is bonkers, even without a huge amount of support. Control Magic is sweet as well!

    If you need it to be a 5CMC creature, maybe Meloku the Clouded Mirror or Bribery? Or Arcane Savant if you want something insane!


    I don't need it to be a cc5 creature card. Control magic is ok but i feel it's a bit redundant with Treachery and Shackles kicking around.

    Opposition looks good tho

    Hi there! I recently cut Clocknapper from my cube because my playgroup deemed him too boring. Now I have two options:
    1) Cut him for another blue card
    2) Cut him and a black card to put Phyrexian Metamorph and Dismember in their colored sections, thus adding 2 colorless/artifacts cards to the cube (one would be Crucible of Worlds, not sure about the second tho). Yeah, I could just move Phyrexian Metamorph, but I would like her and Dismember to be treated the same way.
    For case #1: Do you see any mandatory blue card that my list is missing?
    For case #2: Which black card would you cut? Also, which colorless card would you play?

    Here's the list.

    Nice to see it, hate to see it at Mythic.

    If any environment would have allowed this to be a rare and not be completely unanswerable, it would have been this one.
    As a limited player, I saw the title and went "yeah ok, that's a card that actually has to be a mythic" ... Unlike so many other money mythic, like Doubling Season.

    Except, in Battlebond, you have protection from only one of your two opponents. And you attack them jointly and they can block you individually. So the opponent you didn’t choose can block you, making this card less than broken in Battlebond. I’m not seeing why it’s a mythic honestly. I guess they didn’t want too many floating around in the Limited environment.


    Except!

    It was first printed as Mythic, in a supplemental set, that was also a multi-player format. Soooo... Mad cuz no reason?

    Be a different story if it was rarity shifted, like DS.

    It was a rare actually

    No love for this? Or 1 HP and 7 cards is not enough to actually reverse the game? Probably gives its best in combo decks tho.

    If I had to only run elspeth's sun champion or gideon jura, I'd choose elspeth, but it's close... I could be biased as I lost multiple games over the past couple cubes to elspeth in frustrating fashion heh.

    I'd play them both over sun titan if that's an option Smile That I do not think is close.


    Yeah that's an option actually but i don't think i'll cut the Titan. Sun Titan is not played much, but I respect his role as a value machine-gun and I want value players to have that option. On the other hand i feel like Elspeth is less and less needed in a deck where you can just slam a Titan. Or a Wurmcoil. Or a Consecrated Sphinx. Or an Upheaval.

    Also i noticed that Aggro became quite strong in my environment lately, and i think Gideon can be a good answer to that.

    Small cube question: Is Gideon Jura better than Elspeth, Sun's Champion?
