Cube idea.

Postby Evil Smurf » 07 Dec 2014, 04:57

I think if the duel decks anthology was broken up and combined into a cube, it would be a pretty sweet cube, the decks are all balanced against each other, so I presume it would be pretty easy to make it fun to draft.

Anyway, thoughts?

I had a similar thought. Biggest issue being there are 2 decks each of red, green and black but only one each of white and blue. First step might be to add in elspeth v tezzeret. This would also bring the number of non-basics between the 10 decks to about 380. You want 360 for an 8 person cube.

Yep, color imbalance would be a thing, but as was suggested, finding and adding Elspeth vs. Tezzeret could fix that. That said, I'm not convinced the colors would be balanced (for gameplay). Green and red seem like they'd be rather weak, due to the elves and goblins adding in tribal archetypes that would potentially be hard to support. Also, Chandra Nalaar is easily the weakest of the walkers.
