One thing I note when looking through is your lack of mana fixing for such a strongly multicolored cube. If the shocklands are out of price range, I would suggest adding in both sets of Keyrunes and Cluestones simply because mana can be the biggest issue for a drafter. But that's just my preference.
The issue with that is that you take up more slots, but your cube becomes infinitely easier to draft successfully.

Some really quick suggestions for this deck would to just remove Centaur Battlemaster because of the fact he is just an expensive 3/3 simply because you only have just two spells that target him, Titanic Growth and Pressure Point though I assume you aren't using Pressure Point like that. Second I would recommend adding something to give the Centaurs in your deck haste, perhaps something like Chariot of Victory.

Yeah, I can see that nothing is going to be done. It's not my site, I don't make the rules, I get it, but that's why I plan to leave. At this point I just want those 5 dollars refunded because as you can tell I'm not happy with where they went.
Thank you for your time.

I'll certainly add another land. You don't think check lands and fast lands could do the job Battlesheep?
I'm not too sure about Cruel Ultimatum, seven mana seems a bit high in Modern without ramp and it'd be especially hard to cast with a budget mana base. Thanks for the comment! :)

I am currently constructing Elves deck for modern for when I move to north Texas but as a secondary deck to avoid boredom in the format I was thinking of having Affinity, Scapeshift, Living End or a Gifts Ungiven deck possibly using Vengevine. What is everyone's thoughts on this idea?

I would drop or sideboard spouts, even though it's a good instant trick, whelming wave gets the job done earlier. Also I would try just having Monastery Siege in the side. I really have relied on Devouring Light as a white version of heros downfall. The exile component with it is hugee against abzan.

Who is this person?! I will not allow for somebody to be craftier than Ral Zarek!
The story made it seem like the unnamed person is a white Planeswalker due to the rigorousness of said person's usual schedule. I know it may very well be somebody we already know as a walker but I hope it's somebody new.
At the same time I don't want this to turn into Hero's where freaking everybody is a Planeswalker.

I will say JRaynor that E-bay is the way to go. If I were to put my favorite way to price cards in order it would be E-bay>TCG>Card Kingdom>Local Shops.
I got a sweet deal on my Ajani Steadfast when they were newer and have since traded them to other players using TCG mid and made approx 9 dollars profit off the deal. Super happy I let my friend talk me into using E-bay.

You aren't going to get anywhere. This conversation has been brought up before about that deck and it basically resulted in nothing being done about it because censorship is not condoned.

APPLE01DOJ because "raping" being common slang makes it acceptable.
FelixlivesI'm a pretty big baby tbh, you hurt my feelings! :( It ain't my fault Mr. Borax decided he was going to play devil's advocate
yeaGO I definitely regret those 5 dollars I spent earlier to upgrade and when I get the chance over these next few days I will write my letter to paypal explaining my issue asking for my refund, even if it costs me just as much or more to do so. Don't worry though, as soon as everything is settled I will be leaving the site so you won't need to be bothered by me anymore.
Thank you all for your time.

Also, even then she is so much slower than any other voltron commander and has to be used in conjunction with another card. I have never seen her on a list of competitive commanders, mostly because of the incredible difficulty of ramping her out early and the dependance on an enchantment surviving to keep her from destroying you. She might be a threat in french commander, but I don't know (I don't play french).

I use TCG because the cards I buy on it are usually cheaper. Personally, i've never had a bad experience.
Also I don't mind waiting a month for cards since shipping is free for most of it because otherwise i'll have to pay whatever the local shops demand.
Lately some of my favorite local shops are falling out of my favor. For instance, one of them started refusing to buy Courser of Kruphix a few weeks ago. I get that it's the stores right but saying "We don't want to buy that, rotation" is just a bad excuse. Especially when standard players are notorious for buying a good card even if it's only got a week left in rotation at the full price! Other times they don't want to buy cards simply because they don't want to do the work of entering the card into their online accounts and/or sorting it for their in store accounts.
Also stores have a serious problem of selling/not selling promo cards. For instance, I had gotten 3 promo Thunderbreak Regent and went to Store "B" to sell them after Store "A" said that they didn't want to buy mine. I ended up selling all but 1 of my promos to store B. Then a few weeks later I needed cash due to an unexpected ear infection so I go back to store A and now they're willing to buy the promo. The price was still like 95% of what it was the first time I tried to sell to them.
Lastly a lot of the staff at the local shops are just assholes. I've seen several of them gripe about their job while their working, gripe about a customer "A" to customer "B" when customer A is and isn't there, and though I didn't realize it at the time, some of them have taken stock from the store in order to get me the card I wanted for the trade because they wanted one of my cards badly. Oh and sometimes the staff tries to intimidate me into buying things or making trades for cards that I don't want to trade. So yeah getting sick of game shops.
Anyways long story short is if I didn't go by TCG prices i'd have to use outdated information for reference, or worse, whatever the prices are at the shop i'm in as I arrange a trade either with another customer or the store.
Oh yeah that brings me to my last pet peeve. Store employees often get a discount which is a good thing. What's not a good thing is when they try to base the prices for cards off of what they "could get it for". This isn't a big issue with standard but for commander or modern it can really change the pricing of things.

No, the guy knows the deck and has been in my playgroup for a while, he just gets pissy after a bad day at work and takes it out on whoever he thinks won't be able to stop him or will be stopped from destroying him by other players for one reason or another.

I'm working on a Ravnica-themed cube, and I'm wondering whether the Primordial (Luminate Primordial and its kin) is better or worse to run than the Hunted series (Hunted Phantasm and its kin). While the Primordials have a clear power advantage, their mana cost is so high, they seem almost useless. The Hunted set has a generally lower mana cost, but has significant drawback that makes them hard to run.
Here are the full lists of each set:
For reference, you can find my cube here

I think you kind of misunderstood why i included those red cards. I didn't drop them because they make my deck faster, not because I need them to cast seize the day and relentless assault. My experience with this deck was that when I had a pyretic ritual in my opening hand, 90% of the time I could use it to cast Narset. Narset costs 3RWU to cast and pyretic ritural's RRR is not a problem for me. For examle, if i have mana crypt, land, land, land, cast pyretic ritual then booom! Narset! Or land, ancient tomb, shimian spirit guide, mox, ritual then boom! what i'm saying is that narset costs 3 colorless mana to cast and I included those because I want to cast narset as soon as possible. And RRR really isn't a problem (3RWU-RRR=1WU). The reason why in the description i said we can use those cards to cast seize the day and relentless assault is because we have those cards in the deck, i didn't include those because we need them to cast seize and assault.
I used to have FOW, misdirection, and pact of negation in my decklist but i finally dropped them because they all have some weaknesses. FOW and misdirection require a blue card in hand and i can't always have one. And the pact obviously has more restrictions. I have considered mox diamond but I'm not sure a 34 land including 6 fetches should use it.
lets compare signets with those 4 red cards:1. signets are permanent and red cards can be used only once adding 1 mana.2. signets cost 2 manas to cast and generates 1 mana and red cards generate R more than its casting cost, which means when using signets, it will benefit on the next turn and red cards benefit instantaneously.3. signets can turn one colorless mana into one with color.(itself generates also one with color)
I think both are great and as long as we control their ratio well, they can be very powerful!!
