why do you always post irrelevant late cube formats

If this is P1P1 (which I assume it is), you either go ham on mono-red by taking Sulfuric Vortex (one of the best cards in the deck), or you decide you want to play a real creature deck and take the Sword to keep your options open, or if you want the ultimate spice you take Yawg Will or Pattern of Rebirth. Neither of those last two are "correct", but could lead to sweet forced decks

1. Because I'm watching through every good cube video on YouTube.
2. Because if you are someone who actually cubes, and doesn't only care about modo, this kind of pick is still relevant to you.

Hmm, I generally consider war and peace to be one if the worst swords, so maybe I'm undervaluing it? I'm a bit surprised you didn't mention Kiki, although maybe that's an ambitious first pick? Personally I love the vortex here, but I think Kiki would be my next pick

Wrath of God is normally pretty busted in Limited. Is that not the case in Cube?

assuming all 4+ pieces are in the Cube, I'd take Kiki Jiki here since it's free wins if I get UR Twin and not much of a loss here if it fails

Wrath is a respectable pick from this pack. I'd take it first over Vortex every time out of preference.

Slam Yawg Will because this is a powered cube, and safe picks are for people who have never cast Yawgmoth's Will.

Being the worst sword is still pretty good. Also colorless equipment makes for a great 1st pick. Kiki is another "spice" pick, but grabbing a triple R costed dude that needs a specific framework to be playable seems risky

Cube is definitely its own beast, but Wrath is the best pick for heading in a control direction.
