I play EDH and Limited.

I used to really streamline my decks towards their main focus, at the cost of being well rounded and able to deal with a variety of threats. Lately, I've tried to shy away from this, but I've been having trouble with the transition. My Daxos the Exalted is a good example of my deck building style, and how it has changed over the years.

This system is also pretty prone to abuse, I think. If you're a regular, and know what your opponent is playing, if you know you can't win you can just never pass the Cube.

Way back when Baby Teferi was legal in Pioneer, there was a guy at my LGS playing Sultai Flash. I played Esper Control, and he would just concede the match if we got paired. With the Cube system, he could just never pass it, giving me at most a 2x modifier, ruining my score.

I feel like everything brought up misses a very possible pattern here: you go 4-0 at FNM and lose to the guy who went 0-4 but maxed out the Cube every time.

The LGS I frequent has a really good Yu-Gi-Oh group. They are about 50 players, they play the GOAT format, and they actively chase away players who exhibit bad behaviour (like being creepy, not showering, etc etc).

Not really relevant to the topic (sorry about that), but I just found out about all this stuff yesterday haha.
