    The Dandy Cube (Chris Taylor's Cube)

    The Shapecaller combos sound pretty cool to me and a goal worth chasing - if someone gets to pair a transformed Fable with it, more power to them IMO. There's enough removal in the format to keep that in check and it's not a Twin-style infinite combo that officially ends the game on the spot if...

    Riptide's Most Liked Posts of 2018

    It's pretty embarrassing that it's been over three years and I'm still the most liked post of 2018. Step up your games!

    My Marvellous/Mediocre Magic Thread

    I went 9-6 in that Set Championship - good for $3000! - and got to prepare with some of the best in the game. Before the next one they announced the overhaul and reintroduction of the paper Pro Tour - to seed the initial round, the same record of 9-6 at this one would get you an invite to the...

    You can't figure out the link between the string 'from your graveyard' and the mechanics you listed? You really have to stretch to think Chris is saying every one of those >1000 cards meets your technical requirements.

    General Free spells

    Dodging the question a bit but free spells often make good synergy pieces - Solitude is a top tier pick in my Cube not just as a removal spell but as the perfect pairing for blink, reanimation, sac, Vengevine/Clarion Spirit etc I think hard rules about the shields being down go a long way for...

    Dropped onto Page 2 deservedly after a long hiatus from posting but circumstances forced me out of retirement! Some members of Chris' playgroup wanted to Cube but we didn't have one to hand so I volunteered and scrambled to reassemble my paper Cube that had been split in half in service of...

    General Edict Effects in Cube

    I really think you need to reassess recent sets. Kaldheim is a very strong set - even if you discount the Valki/Cascade interaction spawning the best Modern deck of all time or the Tibalt's Trickery nonsense that got banned in several formats, it was the set that defined Standard recently...

    General Edict Effects in Cube

    Which of these 'looks like' a Magic card? There's the strict literalist sense in which any Magic card necessarily looks like a Magic card - but if every card in the next set suddenly looked like an Invention/Invocation (or the Secret Lair concert poster cards etc) it would mark a definite...

    Charms also hit different when so many of the best cards have modality of some kind built into them these days. It's not the unique selling point they could boast in Shards block >13 years ago

    I've been on a bit of a break from Cube preparing for that Set Championship - decks are locked and I get to battle on Friday! If that doesn't go well, I'll have another shot at it!

    Erik's "The cool side of Magic" cube

    For the record Arcanist doesn't work with Exalted the way we all want - the spell in your graveyard has to be a valid target when DHA's ability goes on the stack before its power is boosted by Exalted

    Sets (NEO) Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty Previews

    I was aimlessly mulling over an artifact Cube before this spoiler season. A few days ago, I was thinking I should just pause it until the whole set is spoiled because this is the artifact set I expected The Brothers' War to be. Now I'm wondering if I can properly support an artifact theme again...

    Erik's "The cool side of Magic" cube

    I've really soured on Crucible. Being colourless gives it this allure of being playable anywhere but in practice even decks that should want it rarely do. In theory it goes in your Stax or Wildfire deck but if it only really pairs with those cards you now have a mostly dead draw that only works...

    ALCHEMY (Innistrad)?! The Alchemy announcement is a crucial milestone in Magic development but isn't really relevant or accessible to paper Cube owners (beyond its indirect implications for how cards are designed generally) and the first batch of cards is a mixed bag for people willing to put...
