strictly worse cube... it has begun

Postby asteriskreaper » 20 Jun 2015, 19:29

started working on this after finding a list for six people online. now I'm modifying it to be big enough for 8 plus a little wiggle room. so 60 cards per color, 60 for multicolor, 60 artifacts, 60 lands. Anyone think of some cards, just say.

http://tappedout.net/mtg-cube-drafts/strictly-worse-cube-10/?cat=color


need list:

black: 13
bluck 14
white:14
green:14
red:14
selesnya:1
boros:3
gruul:1
simic:1

Looking at this list, I think you're not quite taking the concept of "strictly worse" quite far enough. For example, some of the creatures even pass the Vanilla Test in being 2/1s or 2/2s for 2 mana. Also, guildgates seem a little too good for fixing. I'd put in more lands that stay untapped, like these that use depletion counters. I'd also recommend putting in more cards that play better with multiples, like Squadron Hawk, Mishra, and Pyromancer Ascension. Don't forget to put in Urza's Mine and Urza's Tower (Urza's Power-Plant, not so much.)

Hell, just grab a bunch of cards from Coldsnap. That set was "Kindle: the Set".
