So, maybe it’s just an excuse to document my Cube in it’s current form, maybe that is the excuse for writing the article about it, who knows?
Before we go anywhere, I insist, that you download this – http://joyofcubing.blogspot.com.au/
But, let’s get started.
My cube is 405 cards, equal colour split, slight under on artifact count, slight over on multi-coloured and lands.
So, it starts off the way it finishes. In flames, I’ve heard talk that blue is the tightest colour in most cubes, Red takes that badge with honour in my Cube (even just arranging it I’m finding “loose” cards).
Focus, focus, it really is the strength of Red in the Cube.
Wheel of Fortune
Flames of the Firebrand
Though, admittedly, it could be one of the weakness of Red in the Cube.
(no-one ever lets me get Sulfuric Vortex)
Koth of the Hammer
I never used to be a Red player, until I saw it happen properly in Cube; I used to durdle like a champion and now I’ve seen the light at the end of the race.
Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker
Because everyone who has drafted the Cube with me instantly realises my tendencies, cards might be hated off of me, or, others simply do it themselves.
Here is the first real oddity in Red, deep, deep into the list. Kiki-Jiki enables some brokenness (cough, cough, Conscripts (more coughs later) but I think is entertaining even if you’re not going infinite. He is part of the ongoing combo experiment.
Six + CMC
No-one has cast Wildfire yet and Destructive Force is brand new, I’m willing to re-evaluate (especially the force) if it never happens.
And we finish with a Portal Earthquake, which pleases me greatly.
Red isn’t a lot of talking points, but it is good at doing it’s job. The Cube changes and evolves but red is good foundation for other things to build off of at the moment and while it serves a role now, it has room to grow in the future.
