Introducing Cumly Cube 1.1! 6 months ago, Cumly Cube was launched to resounding approval. However, in response to feedback from fans, several cards in the pool were deemed unplayable, uninteresting, or overpowered. For Cumly Cube's six month anniversary, I have chosen to update the card pool. Here are the changes, provided with brief justifications:

REMOVED:

  • Abomination: too weak in power level
  • Anger of the Gods: while board wipes are an essential part of the game, this card is too simple in effect in comparison to other red board wipes in the card pool
  • Birthing Pod: synergizes poorly with the rest of the card pool
  • Black Dragon: too weak in power level
  • Black Lotus: this card and other "power 9" cards have been removed from the pool to allow players to play with less well known cards
  • Bloodcurdling Scream: too weak in power level
  • Cavalier of Night: too on-theme for a black card
  • Cinderclasm: while board wipes are an essential part of the game, this card is too simple in effect in comparison to other red board wipes in the card pool
  • Dack Fayden: too powerful
  • District Guide: synergizes poorly with the rest of the card pool
  • Dockside Extortionist: too strong in multiplayer games considering the dominance of the "treasure matters" archetype in this card pool
  • Dread Reaper: too weak in power level
  • Edric, Spymaster of Trest: too powerful
  • Eviscerator: too weak in power level
  • Grim Strider: too weak in power level
  • Hypnox: too weak in power level
  • Jungle Creeper: too weak in power level
  • Mind Bomb: too weak in power level
  • Mox Emerald: this card and other "power 9" cards have been removed from the pool to allow players to play with less well known cards
  • Mox Jet: this card and other "power 9" cards have been removed from the pool to allow players to play with less well known cards
  • Mox Pearl: this card and other "power 9" cards have been removed from the pool to allow players to play with less well known cards
  • Mox Ruby: this card and other "power 9" cards have been removed from the pool to allow players to play with less well known cards
  • Mox Sapphire: this card and other "power 9" cards have been removed from the pool to allow players to play with less well known cards
  • Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver: too weak in power level
  • Nix: too weak in power level
  • Obelisk of Alara: too weak in power level
  • Patagia Golem: too weak in power level
  • Phantasmagorian: too weak in power level
  • Prismite: too weak in power level
  • Rootcoil Creeper: synergizes poorly with the rest of the card pool
  • Shattering Blow: too strong of an answer to the artifact archetype
  • Shatterskull Smashing  Flip: MDFCs are interesting cards, but it does not make sense to have only one in the card pool
  • Smelt: too strong of an answer to the artifact archetype
  • Smog Elemental: too weak in power level
  • Spirit of the Night: too weak in power level
  • Storm Spirit: too weak in power level
  • Tibalt's Trickery: introduces too much variance for an enjoyable experience
  • Unholy Strength: too weak in power level
  • Vampiric Link: too on-theme for a black card
  • Wooded Bastion: this was included on error instead of its Golgari counterpart

Hi,

I need some help in getting decks like these. I've seen a number of similarly structured decks that have a lot of countering power, a lot of draw capability, tutors, some recursion options and some utility creatures. How does this win? Also, I do not get why Dack Fayden is in this deck. Not for his ultimate surely?

Wkr,

NV

Figured this might be interesting - who would be in your top 5 best commanders if you could use any planeswalker as a commander. No signature spells or any of the fun shenanigans from oathbreaker - just rank purely based on their own merit or how much you like them.

1) Oko, Thief of Crowns - if they ever change the rules and allow people to run walkers as commanders I can see this guy being banned less than a month into the change

2) Jace, the Mind Sculptor - fate seal, Unsummon and Brainstorm all on a stick; if you're a mono blue tempo deck and you don't want this you're crazy

3) Dack Fayden - honestly this is such a cool card -2 steal a Sol Ring or Mana Crypt just feels so dirty

4) Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - all modes are insane. Replaces itself, protects itself and the ultimate wins the game

4) Chandra, Torch of Defiance - basically a red jace and would be great as a curve topper in an aggro deck or an excellent value engine in a prison deck.

i figure you mean a plane within magic and not an airplane but just case...

Ravinca, City of Guilds

Legendary Land

Add to your mana pool

Add 2 colors of any combination to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to cast multi-colored spells. These spells can't be countered


Airstrip

Legendary Land

Add one mana of any color to your mana pool.

3: this land becomes a 3/3 colorless artifact creature with flying and first strike call fighter jet until the end of the turn

hope this full fills the contract.

Now that Dack Fayden is dead make the mutiverse's new greatest thief and make very thiefy, stealing opponents spells or stealing from hand or even library, just let it steal stuff doesn't have to a planeswalker.

I'm curious as to what Dack Fayden is doing in the deck. Is he just not meant to have his -6 activated? Because the only instants and sorceries that target anything are removal (and therefore, you wouldn't gain control of any permanents). Perhaps there's something that I'm missing.

Hey!

Nice looking deck :) I'm working on building a PO deck for vintage myself, I really enjoy Dack Fayden in this shell. Have you thought about Bolas's Citadel instead of Blightsteel Colossus as a Tinker target? In my opinion it synergizes better and is less susceptible to opposing Dack s and Sword s. Also, I can't see any reason to run Red Elemental Blast over Pyroblast , because in the off chance you ultimate Dack , you can target any permanent, even if it isn't blue.

Here is a link to my list:

This reminds me of my first draft of Vadrok! I built him as voltron at first -- I will say that Stormsurge Kraken is an amazing mutate host if you're going for that Voltron win. Malignus , too, but that's pretty obvious ;)

I'd highly recommend Frantic Search -- it's an amazing feeling to cast it off of Vadrok and regain most of your mana, and it goes great with High Tide and/or Underworld Breach. I really like Curfew over Run Away Together , since Run Away Together doesn't work in the infinite Dockside loops (because your opponents eventually run out of creatures). If you're going for the protective spells, Deflecting Swat is an all-star. I'm not a fan of Arcane Denial , you could swap one of these for it.

I'd also recommend Grinning Ignus over Rootha, just because you can pull off some silly loops with it. Doubly so with Mystic Reflection -- because Reflection copies the whole pile, you can use Reflection + Ignus + Vadrok to staple like 20 copies of Vadrok's ability onto the same creature haha.

Finally, careful with that infinite Dack Fayden line: your opponents will draw into all their deck's interaction. So unless you've cast Silence or Grand Abolisher beforehand, you can get blown out. When feasible, I prefer to infinitely recast Reality Shift to deck my opponents, with a similar loop :) Oh, and Hedron Crab and Brain Freeze are all-stars.

Hope this helps! :D It's great to see more Vadrok players running around...

Hey this deck looks awesome! Real quick, you may want to alter your description. You can't Cyclonic Rift your own Dack Fayden as described in step 7 of your last combo, or any other permanent you control for that matter. Trust me, I've tried many times :p
