    Any feedback on this card yet? It's the one I'm most curious about that I'm not testing. Thanks!

    Going to test this as the worst 3 drop green card in my 540. Optimistic but not overly excited.

    Replacing itself is huge because drawing dorks late game feels so bad. This gives a body and a card for 3 mana which is something at most points in the game.

    Looks like a good Garruk for aggressive shells, but I think this is the 3rd best 4cc Garruk overall.


    I agree but at 540 I'm going to try and make space for all of them.

    I was thinking as an aggro topper this would hit really hard, too. Testing this at 540.

    No companion. Had Lurrus in my opener and drew Lotus on turn 3.

    Played this with Black Lotus and it went just as you would expect. I didnt get to hardcast an 8 drop on turn 2 but it was still insane.

    I had a passing thought about cutting Terramorphic/Evolving Wilds/Reflecting Pool but quickly dismissed it as cutting those cards felt wrong. The more i think about it cutting the lesser "rainbow" lands for more structured and fetchable lands is interesting.

    I hate ETBT lands a lot but these 3 color lands really have my attention. Finding the cuts is the tough part.

    Learning toward cutting the following from my 540:

    Reflecting Pool
    Dust Bowl
    Terramorphic Expanse
    Evolving Wilds
    Grand Coliseum

    Grand Coliseum is the one I like best on this list. What I was going for was cutting lands that ETBT and the other two worst lands (Dust Bowl/Reflecting Pool) in my 540. If they complete the cycle I will have to cut from single color sections as I won't have any other room in the gold/colorless sections.

    I made this post more about me personally but others are likely looking at the same batch of cards for cuts & it's good to discuss where we're leaning to ensure we all do what is best for our Cubes!

    I am going to test them for sure. I think I'll cut evolving wilds & grand Colosseum, then find 3 more cuts in my colorless section. Just put them in my colorless/5c section.

    Your comment is making me reconsider. Cutting the lesser lands for more structured and fetchable lands is interesting.

    How does this card compared to 5CMC Garruk and the two 5CMC Nissas?



    I like it more than all of them. I'm cutting Nissa, Worldwaker for it.

    Fumigate costs 5. That's the big thing with this card. At the end of the day it is an unconditional 4 mana wrath. 4 vs 5 is a huge difference.

    It has the potential downside of giving your opponent a card more often than casters of this spell would like. I think it boils down to two things:

    1) Does your Cube want another wrath?
    2) How often will only your opponent draw a card from the wrath?

    #2 is what I'm really curious about and would love some feedback from people who test this card.

    I'm at 540 and it definitely has my attention. Finding a cut is difficult though. Not sure if my Cube needs a 10th wrath effect at 540.

    Wrath, Day of Judgment, overloaded Wings of Abandon (costs 6)

    Toxic Deluge, Damnation, Languish

    Rolling Earthquake, Storm's Wrath (if we add it)

    Supreme Verdict

    If a wrath happens with this on the board the ability would still trigger, right? Definitely can add value vs sweepers.

    I like all of those better than this new card.

    ^Not to mention Sundering Titan.


    This was one of the first things I thought of. Your opponent casually blowing up 5 of your lands would be truly hilarious.

    Also being green & enabling ramp from 3 to 5 (which is the sweet spot in green) is pretty huge as well. An appropriate red & green card to get on this very Merry Christmas!

    This card seems like a slam in my 540. It's obviously not Vortex (the best red card?) but despite being in a guild it's still quite good. It is inevitability which is something I love in Cube cards. If unanswered this card will (eventually) win the game even if everything else is even.

    I've also learned from The Great Henge how good gaining a few life every turn can be. That card has been a big surprise & I'm excited to see this card in action.
