  1. What size should my mtg cube be? This is a question I've head a lot since starting the channel. With so many different drafting types and sealed options, Magic: the Gathering cube sizes can differ massively! So in this video we talk about how you can decide how big you want to make your cube and why your playgroup and gameplay choices help to make this decision.
  2. I wasn't saying it was, I was just saying while shadow is a pretty powerful mechanic in cube, cards like gitaxian probe and others mentioned are also just as powerful.
  3. In all honesty, it's getting to the point for me that either I delete twitter and carry on making content or think about stepping away from this game. I'd still create content but probably for another hobby of mine, but ever since I've been creating there really hasn't been many days where drama or politics hasn't taken over my twitter feed. This forum has been a safe haven and I've met and talked to a lot of great people, but in all honesty the current situation is getting out of hand and it's hard to want to stay connected to a game with a community that is this problematic (again I'm talking about twitter not this forum or the people on it).
  4. So an update to this project is here: Whilst this is currently an initial iteration of the cube at a size that may well still be a little large, it gives us scope to try out cards and see how they perform before making changes as we go. I wanted to make sure that each of the guild colours matched what I see as the theme for them, whilst also making sure that the mana curve is low overall due to the sheer amount of removal available in the pauper format. The one attribute I'm not 100% sure on is the shadow mechanic, but with the likes of coalition honor guard, standard bearer, gitaxian probe, whispersilk cloak and so on in the cube I don't have a problem with it as everyone pretty much has a way to deal with those cards. I'll lay down the overall layout of the cube in a further video and explain everything fully there. Thanks for reading and feel free to give it a draft!
  5. Thank you and for the questions!
  6. Thank you and thank you for the question.
  7. Hi all, just like to say thank you so much for all the help and support you be given to the channel. As of this morning I woke up to hitting that 2k subscriber Mark which is amazing. You're all awesome! Now I'll be doing a Q&A video again for hitting this Mark so hit me up with any questions youd like answering whether they are MTG related or not.
  8. That's probably for the best, I've got so many I'd like to pick up for cube. Maybe I'll be sensible and try and pick up some as singles (bar Mana drain for obvious reasons)
  9. To be honest I'll be cracking a box if I can, but in terms of picking up cards it really does depend if they do that staggered release/second print run nonsense or not. I'm sure you'll find plenty of bargains 1 month or so after release for sure though. So so many great reprints and downshifts for pauper too!
  10. In case you missed the videos, here is a compilation of all of the rarities here. Definitely some exciting cards to come from this set! It's a shame I've opened 20 packs so far and still no opt or chart a course...
  11. All good thanks bud, I can't wait for the pauper content either, I may even start talking about the constructed format on the channel too later down the line - as for the move, all well as I didn't have any of my deposit taken away from me so that's a plus! I get my sky tv installed on friday so once that's happened then I'm all settled in. The new set I'm a lot happier with, still want to get some blue led lights to make the background pop a little more, but that side of things does look a lot better and more professional. I'm dialing in my camera settings each video to find the perfect setup to make my grading as easy as possible (I shoot in a flat/log format so I can adjust anything in post if needed)
  12. Looking at it in terms of cube there are a few. I can't wait to get building this now! Opt is a really welcome reprint. Skymarch Bloodletter. Black wind drake with a nice etb drain on top. Seems solid. I'm a fan of Territorial Hammerskull, nice upgrade to master of diversion and it's an awesome looking card. Jade Guardian essentially a 3/3 hexproof for 4 with a counter synergy seems great to me. Nest Robber (2/1 haste for 2 seems great alongside rakdos shred-freak and spike jester) Bishops Soldier (another new lifelink 2 drop for white after seeker of the way gets downgraded), Tishana's wayfinder is really fun for so many archetypes and my number one common from the set. Ramp, discard, improving your next draw and counter synergy too.
  13. Welcome to the Introduction to a new project where we are going to build an MTG Cube from scratch with a budget in mind from start to finish. This series is aimed at beginners where I'll be documenting the process from what is pauper, why I chose it for this budget cube and continuing on to how I go about building this cube so that you can follow it along. This will hopefully help you to understand how to a build a cube and use this knowledge to make your own and explore this great format! I'm really excited to get going on this project as I've been wanting to get into the pauper format for a while too so that is an added plus. Make sure you subscribe so you know when the next episode is released!
  14. Not sure rotating them is a good idea for consistency, but I can see if I can get the original and make it a little sleeker. I just wanted to up the production value and felt that the original intro was a little basic (more so the backdrop than the revealing text) - I'll see what I can do in my downtime.
  15. Hi all, The HASCON promos are up on their site to order now. I'd get one if I could but only ships to US and Canada. Good luck to you all trying to get them!
