Cube Masters Series | Building The Cube | Black

  Philosophy of Black
  
Black is a difficult colour to build for cube, as it can go in various directions. It can either go heavy into aggro with cheap 'suicide' creatures, or go midrange/control with removal and amazing finishers.
 
In this cube, aggro gets the majority of its support from white, red and green, so I didn't want to further support it with black. Black takes the role of midrange/control, offering the best removal in the cube, incredible hand disruption spells, powerful reanimation effects and some excellent finishers for control decks.
 
Strengths
Removal
Disruption
Reanimation
 
Weaknesses
Low number of creatures
Expensive creatures
'Damage Self' effects
