    Graveyard Duels

    Yeah the manabase is definitely a weak part of the list, I just went for the more budget and simple options for now but it can totally be improved. Bouncelands are not only good in landfall tho, they also help Grixis discard decks (and they would help even more if I include cycle lands). I don't...

    Graveyard Duels

    So glad that my cube served you as inspiration! It is in my list of possible inclusions, I didn't want to have too many 2 mana 1/3 creatures so aggro can do its thing but it definitely could end up being included.

    General Favorite Flavortext?

    enormous baloth This was the card that got me interested in magic when I was a child and only knew of yugioh.

    General What is your stickiest glue card?

    In my cube it has to be: Rankle Sac outlet for Jund aristocrats, discard outlet for Grixis discard and Sultai graveyard, flying beater for Dimir evasive tempo and good curve topper for Rakdos recursive aggro.

    General Fight Club

    Makeshift Munitions Goblin Bombardment I thought recently of including Munitions for having more synergies but I've found that even cubes that support artifact sacrifice prefer the Bombardment, does the extra cost make it really that less desirable as a card?

    Card/Deck Single Card Spotlight

    I didn't consider Fable because I'm not adding DFCs to the cube for now, but it surely could be the card that end up making me want to add them in the future.

    General [UNF] Unfinity Spoilers

    Saw in Half Just found that this card was spoiled and I'm kinda hyped for it, seems fun and love the flavour. Saving your Blood Artist or Nighthowler from removal and creating an exact copy of it sounds very strong.

    Card/Deck Single Card Spotlight

    The Akroan War Any experience with how does this card play? I want to include a saga for each color (because they are cool) and this seemed like the more interesting one for the themes red has in my cube.

    General "Looking for a card"-Thread

    Mycoloth seems like a good one! I think if it is powerful enough in my enviroment it would be the perfect fit. Also, any opinions about how does Rot Shambler compare to Bloodbriar?

    General "Looking for a card"-Thread

    Greater good doesn't seem very good in the decks that want to sacrifice tokens with 1 or 0 power and birthing pod doesn't seem like the best fit in a deck where the things you actively want to sacrifice are 0 mana tokens. I should have specified that I wanted outlets or payoffs specifically...

    General "Looking for a card"-Thread

    Are there any green cards that could draw drafters to a green aristocrats deck apart from this one? Evolutionary Leap I know of Rot Shambler, Bloodbriar and Lumberknot and currently run Bloodbriar, but they don't seem good enough to actually draw drafters towards the archetype and are more...

    Graveyard Duels

    I've finished the cube primer and added example decks for all the archetypes! Also I finally ordered the cards so there won't be any more changes to the list for now although there are some cards that I still have doubts about: Bloodbriar: I added it because I thought green needed a sac payoff...

    General Custom Cards: The Lab

    At least in my cube, where thromok would be played mainly in sacrifice decks, a 5 mana 16/16 hexproof trample that only requires sacrificing a bunch of 1/1s or 0/1s would be probably too broken. I like the ward alternative tho, even more if it's something flavourful like "Ward - Sacrifice a...

    General Monthly Fun Q: What's your favorite thing or topic on Riptidelab?

    I come here mainly for learning more about cube design so what I like the most are the posts/articles/threads talking about design concepts. Also, I'm not exactly the more experienced magic player ever so discovering cards in the spotlight threads is always nice.

    What kind of evasion would you give this guy to be good? Thromok the Insatiable

    The Cavalier is a good recommendation I didn't think about, thanks!

    Graveyard Duels

    I'm almost satisfied enough with the list to finally order the cards, but there are some things I'm not sure about and any help with them would be much appreciated: -I chose Goblin Dark-Dwellers as the substitute for Siege-Gang Commander and while it certainly will perform in the spells deck...

    Graveyard Duels

    I've made some changes and I think the landfall package looks better now: Zendikar's Roil -> Scute Swarm: I wanted the swarm in as a landfall payoff that also worked as a token generator for sac decks and the roil was the best cut. Having too many 3-drops is a much less important problem...

    Graveyard Duels

    I've made changes to the initial list, some of them are made to include interesting and fun cards that fit the themes of the cube, others are minor tweaks but the most important one is a complete overhaul of the Simic section. I had doubts about the flash archetype from the start and when I...

    Graveyard Duels

    Yeah it might be, I included it instead Rythm of the Wild because it gives haste to tokens and I liked the interaction with Siege-Gang Commander and the likes, but maybe rythm would work better in my power level?
