So many good cards over the past couple of days! Here’s what I’ve got so far.
No surprises here- anthems are good and Guardian had become a weak link.
The Kami didn’t see much play, so there’s no harm in trying this guy. The cost makes me a little sad, but that’s kind of where white is right now.
Whoa guys, can you believe they printed this? Power creep!
Ok, I’m done. I recently played a Tinker/Reanimation deck on MTGO, and it was really fun- I got to use the card filtering stuff I love, and I’m a big fan of toolboxes… basically it was a blast to play and I’d like to do that more. Do I need Inkwell along with it? Curious as to opinions there.
Oh, and replay videos from that will be on cubedrafting.com sometime this week.
Another card that has had some good showings online replacing one that’s been creeped out. We’ve also added some artifact mana recently, so I think Upheaval should have a decent home.
This is the most painful cut I’ve made in a while, but I think it’s the best option. I just can’t see a world where the Zenith doesn’t get a spot, though. Suggestions are welcome…
Ambition’s Cost didn’t see much play, and Go for the Throat (I love the name, by the way. It’s just so goofy) is an auto-include. I thought about Sudden Death as well, but that sees more play. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it cut soon, though.
I’m not sure how good this guy will be, but I think this is an upgrade.
I’m guessing this will be the least-liked change, but I really liked the Beacon cycle in cube and I want to give this a shot as well. Banefire’s ability didn’t often come into play, and I think the graveyard effect is about as powerful. In the worst case, Banefire is a known quantity and I don’t mind giving this a shot.
I completely agonized over what to cut until it occurred to me to look at spells. Another super-powerful card that sees next to no play. That’s ok, it means all Baloths are safe… for now.
It’s a little sick how excited I am about this guy.
Last but not least, this guy:
is just getting added. We have five spots that we never filled after redoing gold last year, and they might turn into artifact spots. Either way, there’s nothing I’m really excited to cut at the moment.
