Quote from citynoiseStriking out on your own != peasant cube
Peasant is a defined thing, I don't really understand adding rares permanently but not just making a powered cube.
Quote from MaëligI just found out Mask of Riddles was a card. Looks quite decent actually, has anyone ever tried it? Of course dimir is a prett packed guild...
Quote from DarkprophetLots of stuff is really preference, unless your goal is to use the absolute most powerful cards available. I know I have some subpar picks in my cube due to me liking the card(s) (Like most people won't run all 10 signets, or I have the 5 Affinity for (insert basic land) artifact creatures from Mirrodin).
Quote from LeelueI would never choose to run both over truefire, and my preference is for skyknight
Quote from DarkprophetHonestly, I like Skyknight Legionnaire and Truefire Paladin over him. Actually, I also like Sunhome Guildmage more, and I don't even run that in my cube.
Quote from magicmerlNo problems.
The tricky thing about tribal themes is that they are linear. This means that there might be only one person drafting merfolk at the table, and so that person and only that person wants all the merfolk. That makes the draft fairly non-interactive once people choose their tribes and also means that you are at the mercy of what subset of good tribal cards for your tribe there is in the pool being drafted.
Wizards 'solved' this problem of non-interactive drafts in Lorwyn block by creating crossovers with
a: race/class synergies, so you are have more than one linear theme to maximise in your deck, and
b: changelings, which anyone in that colour can benefit from
The downside with Lorwyn block is that it created overly complex board positions (you had to know what effects all of your opponents 'lords' on the battlefield were generating, as well as predict outcomes shold some lords die unexpectedly). But it's the best way this problem has been solved so far.
Or you can look at Onslaught block, with Timberwatch Elf and Sparksmith banned. That was a good block to draft.
Quote from ThatOneNinjaFor the organizing, you'll probably have to do it by hand, or at least I did. I just grabbed all the cards sorted them by color and casting cost and typed them one by one into my cube thread. It's really not that bad (takes like three hours) and it helps you to become more familiar with your cube.
Quote from kcolloranIf white is gonna be soldiers I might change blue to Wizards. There might well be overlap otherwise.
Quote from eidolon232I don't support tribal decks in my cube, even some cards randomly have synergies with cards tat are good on their own, like a Siegegang Commander that sacrifices a dying Chameleon Colossus or a Virdian Shaman benefiting from Imperious Perfect, so I might not be the best person to ask, but Slivers in limited can be really dumb, especially if both players have a bunch of them.
2) Is this good enough for you or do you want further analysis of your cube? The list can be exported for Magic Workstation, which has plenty of filters, but you have to save it @ deckstats instead of MWS, because the MWS files destroy the existing sort order of the cards.
I can sort your cube "semiautomatically" by card type and converted manacost, if you provide me with a list that is ordered by color.
Quote from RabidVacinEvery format follows the 4 cards per deck rule, even casual.
Quote from Wizards »Freeform is a casual Magic Online format that allows all sets and cards. Regular deckbuilding rules are relaxed; decks can contain any number of copies of a card; multiple Vanguard cards may be included. The only restriction is a 40-card minimum deck.
There are no cards banned in Freeform. You can even play the promotional Gleemox card (despite it saying that it's banned)!
