Modern Masters 2017 Pauper Cube Update

This is the update by Adam Styborski. The reasons for what cards were added and what cards were removed can be found here: http://magic.tcgplayer.com/db/article.asp?ID=13899&writer=Adam+Styborski&articledate=4-13-2017 Only a month late this time! If this is a trend I may only be a few weeks behind on the next update! A "thank you" again to the folks who gently nudge me into trying to keep this up-to-date. Modern Masters updates always have me the most excited because of the potential for down-shifted cards. While I've not played nearly enough recently to be disappointed at loosing certain cards I'm amused to see cards that released when I was getting into magic showing up in Modern Masters. It's a new feeling. (Namely I got in right as Avacyn Restored was coming out.) That said I absolutely love seeing a Miracle card show up.

Aether Revolt Pauper Cube Update

A thank you to those who reminded me and remained patient while their reminders went largely unrewarded. :) I liked the flavor of cards like Halimar Depths and Fertile Thicket, but I understand their removal. Playability should trump flavor if you want to increase the chances of everyone having fun.

Conspiracy 2, Kaladesh and Commander 2016 Update

This is the update by Adam Styborski. The reasons for what cards were added and what cards were removed can be found here: http://magic.tcgplayer.com/db/article.asp?ID=13606&writer=Adam+Styborski&articledate=11-8-2016 Interesting update that highlights just how out of touch with Magic I am these days. You can drive things AND wear a crown!? My word! But seriously ... I worry Monarch could get out of hand. It could highlight the skill gap in players and provide a more drawn out, agonizing defeat. Or it could get the more timid newbies to actually get out there and start turning cards sideways! With all the love for tokens these days I also wonder how they're doing in the cube overall. Good? Too good? not good enough? Fabricate fits the mould, if anything. Overall quite a few solid adds that I'm looking forward to one day making use of! PS: I spent 20 minutes making the logo for this update. That's 19 more minutes of effort than every other logo found on a Google search. I call it, "Conladic Athering: Takender".

Eldritch Moon Pauper Cube Update

This is the update by Adam Styborski. The reasons for what cards were added and what cards were removed can be found here: http://magic.tcgplayer.com/db/article.asp?ID=13467&writer=Adam+Styborski&articledate=8-23-2016 The slight shift into having more spells be at sorcery speed is interesting. It's to make sure there are more interesting decisions, and I hope it plays out that way. Blue seems to have taken a step into the graveyard, which I really like, and Black is starting to lean further in that direction. Graveyard all over is really getting to be a major factor in these colours. I've always been a bit of a fan and there are lots of great cards to pull from! I'm also really interested in seeing how the replacement of Fyndhorn Elves and Llanowar Elves plays out. Decisions abound! Sad to see my fancy Hymn to Tourach go, though! As a final note, check out the link above for a little preview of a future "Conspiracy: Take The Crown" update!
