Ah Vintage Cube.
What happens once you take the most effective cards inside reputation for Magic, shuffle all of them up-and write them? The Vintage Cube occurs.
Using the Vintage Cube, our philosophy in R&D is to provide the strongest cards and strategies that exist in secret. Only 1 card, Time Vault, is slashed through the cube due to power explanations. Anything else is fair game. Likewise, we should make use of a few of the cards which are only obtainable in this cube—namely the Vintage set aside listing. For this end, the Vintage Cube supports huge artifact theme, complemented by a number of the fast mana such as for instance Moxen and Mana Vault. Cards eg Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas and Goblin Welder are much more powerful in a Cube which contains the ability nine. In addition, the large number of draw sevens (Wheel of Fortune, Timetwister, Memory Jar, etc) help storm strategies, especially when with the quick mana. Storm is really tough to display, and frequently calls for a healthy amount of cards seen on Vintage limited number. The Vintage Cube is designed to help these methods in a manner that no other cube is capable of.
When tasked with updating the Vintage Cube, I made a decision that change wasn't planning include any significant overhauls. The Vintage Cube works. It's fun, it is preferred, which is not the same as the rest we provide on secret Online. If it's maybe not broken, I’m definitely not planning to make an effort to fix it.
But that doesn’t imply there aren’t possibilities to increase the Vintage Cube. To start with, three sets have been circulated since we last ran the Vintage Cube—Dragons of Tarkir, secret: Origins, and Battle for Zendikar. These sets have actually lots of interesting cards, even though in comparison against the strongest secret cards ever before to see printing. Den Protector, Abbot of Keral Keep, and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger are welcome additions to your Vintage Cube. There is the list of changes . You’ll discover that many of the changes revolve around simply adding the newest cards and taking out the worst performing cards.
