What should be added from Dragon's Maze?

Any early thought on cube playables from the new set?

Some cool cards I've seen (in no particular order):

Blood Scrivener might actually be good
2013-04-29 20:08
Skylasher seems quite strong against blue decks

I love fuse cards - though only the rares are likely to be good enough for Cube. Breaking//Entering would be good on a Sceptre!

Obdezat's Aid is definitely interesting as an option for reanimating things other than creatures.

Drown in Filth is a card you can use to mill yourself and kill something, so might be playable in a reanimator deck.

I just realized Breaking/Entering is a Sorcery and therefore can't be put on Scepter! Well done me!

Dragon's Maze cards? Blood Scrivener seems to be a Cube allstar so far, and if you have color hate, Skylasher is excellent. I'm also fond of Sire of Insanity, Wear // Tear, Zhur-Taa Druid, and Ral Zarek. Voice of Resurgence ain't too shabby either.

I'm running Ral Zarek, Far //Away, Lavinia, and Varolz in my powered cube. Zarek is great in grixis control or blue/something else tempo (in power he's easy to splash). Far//Away is a good control card, but I'm not certain it will stay. Lavinia hates on aggro and artifact mana and synergizes with a heavy blink mechanic in WU for me. Varolz loves some Tokens or Reanimator or both! He's Lotleth troll part 2 if you have the space for him.

Also debating legion's initiative to complement wildfire / Balance stratagems.

Running Ral Zarek, Voice of Resurgence, Spike Jester and AEtherling in my 540 powered. AEtherling is solid, competes a lot with some other high end cards, but he's a solid 1-card win condition that's pretty reliable. I also just added Varolz and Blood Scrivener this past week, want to give them a chance to prove themselves.

I have a 720 unpowered cube and Ral Zarek is gradually becoming a top draft pick. It took playing him in cube to realize his potential and I've adopted playing him into commander and vintage. Far and away has been better than good. Voice of resurgence has been fair. Spike jester has been narrow for me but he is unbeatable in the proper archetype when played on curve with a supporting cast. Obzedat's aid is on the chopping block but has been sticking around because BW doesn't have much competition compared to the other 2-color combinations. As much as I love aetherling I don't think it warrants a spot even in larger cubes because there are much better options. Frost titan and consecrated sphinx end the game as good or better and fit into more deck types. Render silent isn't a bad option if you have room in UW and like a higher counter spell count in your cube. Bloodbaron of vizkopa could be fun if you support midrange strategies in those colors. An argument can be made for gruel war chant in larger cubes. krasis incubation is simic's version of faith's fetters. Savage born hydra seems fine. Turn/burn, Wear/tear, and war leaders helix all seem like defendable cards.
