Set Prospective

Modern Horizons 2

June 22nd, 2021 — Jett Crowdis

This article is one of our set prospectives, a series in which we survey the Cube community about the cards they intend to play in their cubes from a particular set. Our survey is conducted between the set’s full-spoiler and official release and is meant to measure and document Cube designers’ first impressions of new cards.

“How are there so many cards breaking in to a 360 powered cube?”

Single Card Discussion
The Amazing Race
Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer
Ignoble Hierarch
“Ragavan is in my cube, but his power level is so absurd, I might cut him.”
— t3hj0j0
Damn
“Damn would be rated higher, but including it as a white card might confuse my drafters.”
Solitude
Grief
Fury
Subtlety
“I’m testing out the Incarnation cycle, though I’m not sold on keeping all of them in.”
Grist, the Hunger Tide
Dauthi Voidwalker
“Grist is my favourite card from MH2. Just such an awesome toolbox piece, exactly what the doctor ordered for Golgari.”
Lose Focus
Flametongue Yearling
Persist
Unmarked Grave
Archon of Cruelty
“I've been trying to make an Orzhov Reanimator theme work for ages, so when that was revealed as an archetype in MH2, I was over the moon.”
Timeless Dragon
Esper Sentinel
Tourach, Dread Cantor
Dragon's Rage Channeler
Kaldra Compleat
“Kaldra may be too good to still qualify as ‘fair’ in combination with Stoneforge Mystic and too bad without it for me to be willing to make those sacrifices.”
Prismatic Ending
Urza's Saga
Peasant and Pauper Cubes
Timeless Witness
Tireless Provisioner
Bannerhide Krushok
Conclusion
“I’m sad how many of the cool cards are mythics. It makes my wallet hurt.”
