Legacy Cube Begins Tomorrow

Legacy Cube is full of some of the best cards from across Magic's history, working together in ways you can only experience in a Cube. And the fun doesn't stop for nearly a full month, ending April 25.

Build Notes

General | Death Pit Offering has been reigned in and no longer causes you to sacrifice all of your permanents.

Standard | If Nullhide Ferox is granted riot and its activated ability is activated, its controller is rightly able to cast noncreature spells.

General | Creatures that are able to transform now have the summoning sickness animation when they are appropriately sick.

General | Vehicles such as Smuggler's Copter are now affected by anthem effects such as Trostani Discordant.

Legacy, Modern | Laboratory Maniac is no longer able to maniacally end the game with cards in your library and a card with dredge such as Golgari Thug in your graveyard.

General | The Scarab God now correctly applies Rule 706.9d which means to say that an Enigma Drake will be a 4/4 creature no matter what cards are in your graveyard.
