I think Stronghold is powerful enough to merit inclusion in the Cube itself, like otherwise people just pick it right away and Mosswort Bridge and friends look mighty stupid
Re. Tears -- based on my MMA experience, anyone ever think about cubing with Tromp the Domains?
Anyone ever tried to cube with Burning Vengeance or Furnace Cel?
Well technically the signet would be replacing a Wasteland, if that changes your opinion.
Honestly, No. If Sphinx is "replacing" Detention Sphere then I personally think Sphere is the better card as itll fit more decks than Sphinx will. Dont get me wrong though they are both awesome cards and Im running both of them. But if I had to chose to keep Sphere or Sphinx Id have to choose the Sphere. Hows Venser for you? Hed probably be my cut. Ive never used him in cube but it seems like he would only be best in a Blink deck. I wouldnt want Venser if I was control since he does nothing on his own.
Betrothed of Fire was a complete non-factor in Mirage/Visions/Weatherlight limited. Granted its hard to remember because it was like 16 or so years ago, but I really don't think it was ever maindecked for any reason other then total desperation. I don't think it even made an impact in junk drafts. The boardstate for this card to be useful is just too specific.This is a very cool card that looks like it will perform like ass 90% of the time. Has anybody here actually played with it? Maybe I'm just super wrong.
