In talking with Pringlesman at the SCG Indy open, he talked about how he’s only using 3 multicolor cards in his 450-card cube. I looked to see if I could do the same and it looked like it wouldn’t require too much in the way of sacrifice.
|Mirari’s Wake||Olivia Voldaren||Stormbind||Venser, the Sojourner||Oona, Queen of the Fae|
|Goblin Trenches||Electrolyze||Spiritmonger/Putrid Leech||Mortify||Mystic Snake/Edric|
Some cuts are definitely hard, like Oona, Spiritmonger/Leech and Mystic Snake/Edric, but the rest aren’t too difficult.
The question then becomes, if I cut those, do I add 10 colorless, 5 colorless and 1 of each in W/U/B/R/G or 2 in W/U/B/R/G each?
Cards behind the cut are in my on-deck binder. Feel free to give some other suggestions, but these cover what I’ve got in my on-deck binder and options that I’m presently considering.
Akroma, Angel of Wrath
Ludevic’s Test Subject
Sea Gate Oracle
Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
Gatekeeper of Malakir
Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
Black Sun’s Zenith
Inquisition of Kozilek
Zo-Zu, the Punisher
Smash to Smithereens
Master of the Wild Hunt
Harrow (Oracle of Mul Daya is in its place)
Kodama of the North Tree
Mayor of Avabruck
Initial impressions are that colorless has some really solid additions but starts to run thin. Crystal Ball is the only one that I’m really aching to get back into my cube, but nothing else really strikes me and being able to get more cards into my colors is nice.
Note that the blue section is before my “blue tempo/midrange” experiment, many of the cards like Standstill/Opposition/Mindshrieker being components of it.
