Context is King

This episode of Lucky Paper Radio covers a range of topics all surrounding the importance of context in cube design and card evaluation. To start, Andy and Anthony do a very spooky pack 1, pick 1 from listener Stephen’s seasonally appropriate Innistrad Cube. They go on to discuss a theoretical Christmasland plane and answer a question from listener Adam about including cards of varying power levels in a cube list. Throughout this conversation, they go in depth about the kinds of cards that scale with the power level of an environment and the kinds that do not, the interplay between synergistic decks and individual, non-synergistic cards with a lot of raw power, Andy’s recent guest appearance on Jbro’s stream, the Zendikar Rising and affiliated updates to Andy’s cube, and how our hosts have some overlapping cards that are included in both of their cubes even though they differ dramatically in power level. How is that possible? Witchcraft!

You can find the hosts’ primary Cubes on Cube Cobra:
