Tales of the Squire- Who doesn’t Love to Cube?

by Dan Rae

Since the Legacy format has changed I have not really had any breakthroughs on decks, and I’m not going to try to tell you what is winning at other events because I’m sure everyone is checking coverage and such.  My friends are very generously lending me the  cards for my BUG list from the last article, so I plan on playing that at the NELC Qualifier at Jupiter on October 15th.  You should come and play.  Before deciding on the BUG list, I tested out my list running Mindshrieker against the legend Ken Adams.

Having drafted m12 over that past couple of months, I came to the conclusion that red, white, and green were the three best colors to draft.
