Black Border Modern Core Sets (a look back)

Going back as far as September 2012, I looked at the Black Border Modern Core Sets as one group, and over the years since I have wanted to build a cube for these sets only. Now that Origins is the last core set, I am ready to work up a plan for building such a cube for paper cards as well as digital cards. It will likely take me a long time since this is a mountain of cards.

Here are the posts for this theme on this blog:

Recent Core Sets: White

Recent Core Sets: Blue

Recent Core Sets: Black

Recent Core Sets: Red

Recent Core Sets: Green

Recent Core Sets: Variable Casting and Multicolored

Recent Core Sets: Artifacts

Recent Core Sets: Color and Card Type Balance

A Core Set Cube (M10, M11, M12, M13, M14)

The Core Set Super Cube

I have gone back and forth about including Tenth Edition, and I have decided that it must be in. Therefore, the cube as planned is Tenth Edition, M10, M11, M12, M13, M14, M15, and Origins. That's eight core sets. That is a ton of cards. I wonder how many decks that match specific archetypes can be built when we limit ourselves to just these cards.

May 2020 update: 

I am finally working on this cube. Add M19, M20, and soon, M21.

Here are a few 10th Edition posts. I will add more links to this general post as I make more progress.
