My Cube (Revised to Urza's Destiny)

The year was 2013 and I bought a big collection from an acquaintance containing cards Revised-Urza and I decided to build myself a cube. I started playing when Revised was still available in the stores and stopped playing after Urza's Legacy. So that is the reason why I choose specifically these sets and did not go until Scourge (which border wise would have made sense).
