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

Our builds are so different!

Monastery Mentor is the perfect lieutenant for Noyan Dar. Wish I could run it in mine.

View from Above wow... PB&J

15 basic lands... any interest in the Legacy package Land Tax/Scroll Rack/Back to Basics/Dust Bowl?

I also have been dabbling with jeskai tokens.... besides Monastery Mentor there is Young Pyromancer and Poppet Stitcher  Flip which I have been using with great success... Raise the Alarm is also nice for instant speed synergy with stitcher.

Need suggestions on what two cards to add to get 60 cards in deck? Or 4 to get 62 in deck? I like to go over 60 by a few just because. :] Perhaps Monastery Mentor?

@ColonelCards the Goal/win condition of the deck is to play Poppet Stitcher  Flip and or Young Pyromancer/Monastery Mentor and cast instant and sorcery spells to create a large number of Tokens... when poppet stitcher transforms into Poppet Factory  Flip the tokens become a swarm of 3/3's... casting thing like Opt, Consider and Faithful Mending create tokens and get more cards in hand to cast additional spells for removal or countermagic to snowball into just having an overwhelming board presence of creatures/tokens beating the opponent down.

tinkered with the list a bit more today and came across two cards that really seem interesting. Hard Evidence and Gather the Townsfolk.

also plying with the idea of Rapid Hybridization to either use as removal or target one of my own smaller tokens to gain a 3/3 out of it.

all in all its a work in progress and really appreciate you guys for helping me make improvements to this deck. so thank you!

I like Poppet Stitcher  Flip because it can make bodies if I need it to or it can give bodies that I have a boost. I dont think its better than Monastery Mentor but I do think the versatility is at very least worth exploring for experimentation at this point in brewing.

As far as Remand goes your probably right I just love cantrips... same goes for the spell package suite as a whole... currently just building a general outline concept for this decklist and definitely need to make changes here and there.

I plan on doing some playtesting throughout the week and will make adjustments for sure.

I feel like this list hasn’t justified running Poppet Stitcher  Flip here.

You’re running 2 copies each of Monastery Mentor and Poppet Stitcher  Flip here, and as the cards fill the same role, it’s going to always be better to be running a playset of the better card instead (i.e Mentor).
