    Rediscovered Paradise

    Rediscovered Paradise

    On this episode of Solely Singleton, Brad and Eric take on a commonly postulated topic by cube designers: How should one go about adding and removing whole archetypes from their cube?  In addition to that, the guys have a single card discussion on the landfall-enabling Undiscovered Paradise from the set Visions, and how it might be useful to you with the release of Zendikar Rising.

    Circling the Square

    On this episode of Solely Singleton, Brad and Eric discuss their experiences of using Brad’s cube to take on a cube thought experiment/challenge.  That is, to cut your cube down to a 360.  This concept is one that can be incredibly eye-opening from a design point of view.  Not only does it showcase you or your playgroups own biases, but it can also show you which cards or archetypes might be worth cutting.  Come take a listen and try the challenge out for yourself!

Thoughtful Cube Discussion!

I was just introduced to this podcast. I have really enjoyed the topics so far. The discussion is interesting and will likely help me to refine my cube choices based on their opinions and suggestions.

Excellent cube podcast but...

Great cube podcast, but they don’t maintain their library, meaning you can’t listen to their oldest episodes from the beginning in your listening app of choice. This is a big deal in terms of being an ambassador for, as well as attracting new listeners, and without it I would choose to recommend one of the many podcasts that more responsibly maintain their library. This is a 5 stars cast if you don’t care about this diligence on their part.

Really dig it

Overall the content and discussion is good. The discussion and train of thought seems to be a little one sided sometimes but that isn’t a big complaint.
