Do not like aggro, do not like miracles. Cube is very different to normal drafting jitte is not such a big bomb and I rarely go red, whilst i am almost always blue in cube and bad players first explanation of things is luck.

Got to agree with MitchMachine. Didnt get beyond pick 1, that was just terrible.

I can pick out alot of problems.. but I will just nitpick the deckbuilding.. Can you defend your playing U/R and not playing the Nivmizzet?

I really do not think niz is very good in cube, as i did not have many threats I was trying to play threats that i could always get value out of rather than simply die to a mortify and have the same value as savanah lions.

I think one thing people need to realize with cube is it's not like real drafting where there are often obvious correct picks, as you often end up with decks that look more like constructed decks than draft decks so, its a lot more about having a strategy.

That said Im quite new to cube so im willing to accept I made some bad picks. I simply stuck to the strategy that works for me, not that I'm saying this was a great example of the sort of deck I was looking to do.

By himself.. maybe not.. but when you have things that interact well with him then yes he should be played. And considering the amount of control you had, I highly doubt it would have died to a mortify.
