Sharking

Pretty much exaclty what thrillho said. I used to shark the shit out of people and make a ton, but it savaged our group and frankly people stop trading with you after a time. One of my favorite tricks was to arrange a massive stack of cards we each wanted from each other and then pull three cards fr...

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Hypergeometric Distribution

to answer your "things you could add" question. An analysis of fetching and just how minimal the effect usually is would be a pretty sweet thing to cover.

[365] [Theme] vigilante's One-Drop Cube

is sol ring really not good enough? it seems a kicker deck could use it as a build around. it definitely is much MUCH worse, but i feel like it still slots in pretty well.

it will be developed like a real set, but it will have a bunch of sets worth of bombs making it a rather unique experience methinks.

Cube Noob Q&A

As I said the default of singleton is super solid, no arguments there. Glad to see that for themed cubes you can see singleton being broken :). The main reason to break the singleton rule is to push some kind of theme even if it is in a more traditional cube. Adding storm to a traditional cube and b...

Cube Noob Q&A

the card pool of magic cards that are strong enough in a slot are not always vast enough to push the strategies you want at least at singleton. Again, how is 2 arbitrary but singleton sacred?

Cube Noob Q&A

you run two because you want to keep a certain amount of variance while still enabling the strategy. that's like saying how does 1 faithless looting help graveyard strategies, or why not cut careful study since adding it is an "arbitrary" change and unlikely to help the strategy enough. Mo...

Cube Noob Q&A

the variance argument makes sense, i disagree with the balance argument because it is a cop out. If done conservatively it seems like a good way to improve the cube in a way that strictly adhering to the singleton rule does not allow. Some effects need duplicates where they dont exist. Once the rule...
