With the Cube being constantly updated, thanks to Steveman, we often will come across a pool that is very open and leads to many options. Due to this, I wanted to start a thread with a pool I received for people to discuss about how they would build it. I thankfully opened this pool my first try in post-Theros Cube. This may be a bit difficult to follow but will be fun to see discussion on.

Let's see what you all think to build!
Also, my apologies for not having a better way to sort the pool and not being able to post images, for some reason my bbcode wasn't working.

I follow these 2 rules as often as possible when building Cube pools.
1. Let your mana base guide you
2. Play as many planeswalkers as you can

I see this as a Bant build. Not only does this give you good fixing and a solid curve, it gives you bombs which are very difficult to answer like Luminarch Ascension and Vedalken Shackles.

yeah, there are still several glitches like that -- moltensteel dragon is a land -- it's being fixed slowly but surely

Based on your lands / planeswalkers, I'd go RUG. Your green is your meat and potatoes, your blue has lots of tempo, and red / multicolor has some goodies. Imperial Recruiter can search for a lot of things, like Kalonian Hydra, Progenitor Mimic, Hornet Queen, and Sower of Temptation.

It's actually harder to build well than it looks, as UGw is clearly the way to go but the lands you have make it much harder to make shackles as powerful as it could be.
