Recommendations for Andy’s Bun Magic Cube
Recommendations for Anthony’s Regular Cube
Final Thoughts on the Recommender

On this episode of Lucky Paper Radio Andy and Anthony are looking at the suggestions from Cube Cobra’s recommender for adds and cuts to their respective primary cubes. This is a jumping off point for discussion about which cards they think are under- or overrated, the philosophies at the foundations of their cubes, how single cards can open up entirely new decks in a draft, the merits of various two-mana green ramp spells, how to balance support for an archetype without it becoming too dominant, various things about Magic that Andy doesn’t like, homogeneity within the Cube community, how much to trust algorithmically generated cube suggestions, and how Anthony wants to kiss Changeling Hero right on his freaky lips.

Our pack 1, pick 1 this week is from listener Morphling’s Artificer Cube. Thanks, Morphling!
