Cubism: How do you split your cube into packs?
Hey T/O, I'm designing a cube and I want your input. What is your preferred method for splitting the cube into packs? I've been able to find precious little information via the google.
Here is the synopsis of what I've seen:
What is your preferred method?
As of this morning the Campaign was officially successful, and we were even able to cross the line for the 2nd stretch goal! Thanks again to everyone who supported us. Because of the minimum order quantity for the custom sleeves, we're going to have hella extras once they arrive, so be on the lookout for those going on sale later through our website.
If this topic is still featured/stickied anywhere, it can now be safely unstuck.
While I agree it is nice that it's CMC is less, you can still expect that you will be casting sign in blood around the same time you could cast read the bones, because it is double black. Regardless, they are both strong cards, just a thought.
Doesn't matter. Stony Silence is still the better card. It ruins affinity completely and has impacts on other decks liketron, which kataki does nothing against. And thanks. I know more about b/w tokens than anyone else on the site to my knowledge.
I tried something similar but it really only seems worth putting that much effort into the polymorph if you are going to win it the next turn or 2, so Worldspine Wurm was definitely my target. Check it out: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/poly-wurm/
Yes, that will work. Just note that if the blocking creature would be killed by combat damage, you need to sacrifice it before damage is actually dealt, otherwise you'll lose your chance to use the ability (this of course means it won't deal damage to the attacker).
It almost removes the barrier to entry for legacy, period. Most decks can run off of 3-4 max 5 mana, so if playing 3 colors you can just have one of each, and hold fetches to grab basics or another if someone wastelands one of them.
I like what you've got going here. Something to look at, with the Endless Ranks of the Dead you already have Noxious Ghoul can be a board at the start of your turn every turn. I love running mono black zombies, Lord of the Undead and Death Baron super good,it looks like a fun deck.
My mistake. I figured Whip of Erebos was the reanimator. Obzedat's Aid is in my opinion the best reanimation spell in Standard, and it should really be in your maindeck over Champion of Stray Souls . Additionally, I think you want some number of Satyr Wayfinder to get the combo off more consistently. It is my opinion that the Athreos, God of Passage s won't be doing much if you do choose to cut the Champions, so those could go if you want to maindeck a better reanimation target.
Currently, to maximize on being able to consistently play creatures off Descendants' Path , I only run 2 creature types: birds and humans. Elvish Mystic is, obviously, an elf. If Elvish Mystic were Deathrite Shaman (which is unfortunately banned), I would completely put it in over Avacyn's Pilgrim because it provides so much extra value. The ability to tap for green instead of white, however, is a complete non-issue: blue is the limiting color in the deck. There are turns in which I want to play multiple blue spells, but there are never any turns in which I want more than one green spell. And since I clearly already had a green source to play the mana dork, I don't need any more green.
I have given a lot of consideration to Arbor Elf , though. With Breeding Pool being the main land in the deck (almost all the other lands just fetch it), it basically reads: "T: Add G or U to your mana pool." Is this ability to tap for blue make it more worthwhile than the ability to easily keep playing off Descendants' Path ? I don't know: might be worth trying to switch these 2 cards.
As for Sage Owl vs Omenspeaker (Preordain is banned), this one is also hard to tell. Because I have Noble Hierarch to give exalted, I really appreciate cheap flying as a way to push damage through. Is flying better than +2 toughness? I'm leaning towards yes, but I could be wrong. This difference likely depends on the meta in which you're playing.
Either way, the important thing to examine is Scry 2 vs Rearrange 4. Omenspeaker 's effect allows me to easily get rid of cards I don't want to be drawing, which is valuable. Sage Owl 's effect, though, allows me to dig twice as deep. Combined with shuffling through fetch lands, I think this gives Sage Owl a slight advantage over Omenspeaker . I think this is another spot where I could be trying out both, though.
Okay! After much playtesting I have come to agree that Indulgent Tormentor
and Hall of Triumph
could be replaced with better cards. Took them out, for +1 Devour Flesh
, +1 Desecration Demon
and +1 Master of the Feast
. The curve graph now looks very pretty.
@Dreno33: I love Athreos, God of Passage
- this deck is based on my Orzhov Athreos build getting out of hand which was super fun and I will probably go back to at some point. However - this build is going to stay pure mono-b and focused. Check out getting out of hand to see my Athreos thoughts.
You could replace Read the Bones with Sign in Blood if you are still interested in the card draw aspect (plus, you can kill your opponent if they're below 3 life). Otherwise, Thoughtseize would make a good addition, I think.
I dont have a 4th verdict or an Elspeth. And I dont netdeck. I enjoy building decks that are my own. I tried netdecking (MUD) and I didnt feel like I was playing something I made. I came up with this deck and built it out of cards I already had. Plus I dont care about making it better. I rotates in 2 months so theres no point in buying more verdicts/revs/elspeth for this deck.
