    posted a message on [CUBE] Torrential Gearhulk
    This is Cube, not constructed.

    If you think blue is underpowered relative to your other colors, and needs the extra power from more generically powerful 6-drops like Sphinx/Titan, it makes sense to leave Gearhulk out on power-level basis.

    I suspect that's not the case here.

    I'm including Gearhulk because it adds another layer of interesting decision making to the draft process and shakes up the blue 6-drop slot that has been the same for 5+ years.

    To each their own, but Cube would be a lot less interesting to me if I built it like a constructed deck. Power is fun, but variety is more fun.

    Nothing can straight up replace Seething Song in the current shell, period. For Storm to remain top-tier viable, people are going to have to innovate. Building a shell Lotus Bloom can work in seems like a good place to start. I am testing with Faithless Looting to discard dead Blooms and give a better chance of T1'ing a Bloom.

    posted a message on [[SCD]] Squadron Hawk
    Quote from SpEkKiO99
    Squadron Hawk had many predecessors that should also be allowed if your going to go there:
    Howling Wolf
    Skyshroud Sentinel
    Llanowar Sentinel
    Welkin Hawk

    But then you are going down a slippery slope of how many of these types of cards to allow and also giving the list of these cards to everyone before a draft and remembering them during a draft.

    I'm not going there, only 1 copy of each card in my cube.


    It's not a damn slippery slope when you have complete control over what you include in your cube. Sorry to be blunt, but that line of logic drives me nuts. Including Squadron Hawk does not mean you have to include any of the cards you listed.

    Quote from Trunkers
    I just found the decisions less interesting with 4x4. Also, for 4 people Tenchester drafting is really good. Realllly good.


    We did not do 4x4. We did 3x3 with 4 people, and replacing the first row/column taken. There were a ton of interesting decisions.

    posted a message on [[SCD]] [GTC] Boros Charm
    Quote from FoggManatic
    I'm not taking life advice from patrick chapin. I don't care about his opinion on words. My experience with actual rape is not a light one, and in fact is very close to home. I'm not down with the absurdly politically correct, and over-sensitive Bull**** that seems to be so prevalent these days. Formerly 'negative' words are now 'positive' and vice versa. It just can't matter that much.

    Words mean things, yes, but words don't harm me, because I'm not a child. I can say Boros charm is a great card, and it means the same thing and everyone knows that. Speaking of which, the disk interaction is absurd, and is my first and foremost post-GTC goal.


    It's not about words harming you. It's about words harming others. If you were actually not a child, you would not have a problem with changing your language to avoid hurting others. It's not difficult.
