The number of cubes on Cube Map has increased from 25,664 to 28,403. Notably, this does not match CubeCobra’s ~40,000 Cube number on the home page. Due to a bug in the creation of cubes, about 10,000 empty cubes were generated.
Some notable changes:
We see the emergence of new cube clusters, including MH2 cubes, Mystery Booster cubes, Nega cubes, and Sudden Death cubes, which are centered around starting at one life. Sudden Death and Mystery Booster cubes were present before, but they finally acquired enough cubes to form their own distinct cluster.
The position of the Commander cube cluster has changed and is now located on the left instead of the right. As a reminder, there is no meaning to this—islands (even large ones) can move around the map fairly freely between data updates.
The MTGO associated cubes are continuing to become more defined. LSV and Gaby’s cube now forms its own cluster (because of its publication on MTGO), and the MTGO is continuing its trek away from the mainland. It will never fully separate (as there are a continuum of cubes behind it), but it will likely continue to extend.
The number of cubes on Cube Map has increased from 21,585 to 25,664. Some notable changes:
In the dimension reduction for clustering,
n_neighbors has been increased
from 20 to 25. This is subjective but reduces overclustering as the dataset
