    Needs more fetchlands and two-drops for pod. Good start though. I like the Brainstorm / Pod interaction.

    I know I'm kinda missing the point here but I really hope this contest ends up producing more actual cubes and less circle-jerky tickling JW's pickle joes

  10. I'm working on one! I'd totally play blacksmithy's list though it looks amazing
    blacksmithy likes this.
  11. I may actually PM it if I can come up with an argument for my card choices other than "These cards are cool so I put 4 of each into a cube, enjoy"

    EDIT: Nvm I don't want Champ status enough to write a bunch of BS about my (lack of) high-level thinking. I literally made that list in 10 minutes :cool:
    Someone with disposable income, feel free to put it together and draft it though. It does seem pretty fun except that Tinker is probably a trap.
  12. I already have champ status, it's awesome. Custom card scans!!!
  13. Thankfully even CT scrubs like me can host multiple cubes, so I uploaded the above list for funsies. Sorry for totally hijacking this thread :rolleyes:
    Behold the Squad Goals Cube:

    Even if you have it, you can get a year for free by winning the contest!

    It should be noted that nothing in this thread is an official entry. Official entry's go to my forum inbox.
  16. Chris Taylor Contributor

    Still though :p
    I'm just as allowed to wag my finger and sigh

  17. It took me over half a year to redesign my own cube. With three booked weekends and a baby girl, I'm pretty sure I don't have the time to cook up a new cube in three weeks time. But, thanks :) I hope this leads to something awesome though!

  18. Grillo_Parlante Contributor

    Its actually not so bad if you just treat it as revamping his existing cube rather than building from the ground up.

    I'm sure my entry will be super boring though lol
    blacksmithy likes this.
  19. Grillo, none of your cubes are ever boring!
    Give him the Painland Cube as your entry ;)
    Kirblinx and safra like this.
  20. oh, also: surely we can pick a better demonym than "Riptards"?

    my nomination: fugitive wizards, or "fugizards"

  21. Riptide Survivors?
    On topic, I went ahead and submitted my stupid Squad Cube after all. It can be cut to 360 using a method outlined in its new cube list thread, but I don't actually want to win, soooo
  22. Taking the suggestions above and working toward balancing the colors a bit, here's the second iteration:

    148x Gravecrawler
    148x Brainstorm
    55x Champion of the Parish
    4x Birthing Pod
    1x Lightning Bolt
    2x Wooded Foothills
    2x Fire-Belly Changeling (Zombie, Human, and increases the red count)

    This is a work in progress, so keep the critiques coming!
    blacksmithy and Alfonzo Bonzo like this.
  23. Actually just spent like half an hour tweaking the primary list. Triple fetch is interesting, gotta figure out ways to abuse it and what it actually means for draft decks in terms of fixing. I forgot how few 360 cards was though, it feels weird not having room for sweet stuff. I'll just add to sideboard I guess.
  24. If we're picking a demonym I nominate Riptwits or Lab Maniacs for consideration

    (seconding safra's suggestions too tho)
    safra and blacksmithy like this.
  25. Jason Waddell Administrator

    It's not actually triple fetch. I think it's 26 fetchlands.
