its fine. Just a tip: always look for giveaways and coupons (sorry forgot the term) to get money off buying cubes and always look for reviews too! :)
Yup I won cubing encoded 90000 subscribers giveaway. I got a 25 dollar giftcard. Would use it on my birthday. That's why I am asking y'all to say the best speedcube according to the criteria above.

Right now the only 4x4 that I have is the Yj Yusu V2 M and I want to replace it between the MGC 4x4 or the Moyu Aosu WR M so, which cube between them should I get? (Keeping in mind that I relay a bit on corner cutting)

I have being thinking to get the MGC because is a cheaper option and heard good things about it, but I wanted to hear opinions of people that have tried those cubes.
So I got a MGC 4 for my little brother for his birthday which is tomorrow so I’ll tell you how it is whenever he opens it but shh don’t tell him
So now I have tried it, and you should get the MGC. It comes quite dry and really fast out of the box, but even with that I was only getting 2-3 seconds slower than normal times on it. Then I lubed it with quite a bit of 50k in a way that was extremely similar to the way I set up my wrm, and tightened the cube some. It is now almost identical in feel to the wrm, although it is slightly more sluggish since I haven’t quite broken it in yet. The general difference is that the wrm feels more solid and limited while the MGC is more flexible. The MGC has stronger outer layer magnets (which I like) and is slightly larger (which I don’t like). The wrm is about equal, and any advantage it may have is not worth the extra $20
Edit: and they got rid of that awful shade of green from the 6x6.

I'm quite happy with my worm, even though it pops pretty frequently if the tensions are too loose. But cornercutting and speed also work on tighter settings, so it doesn't really matter. Haven't tried the MGC (I only have 5 cubes, LOL), maybe someone who has tried it will reply...
The Cubicle has the Moyu Aosu GTS M 4x4 on clearance this week, assuming they have some left. (Went from $36 to $12.) I ordered one, and it should be here by Monday!

To find the clearance section you have to scroll down to the footer bar at the very bottom. There’s a link there to their clearance page. Get one while they last!

EDIT: I took a second look and saw you want a different model. Sorry, I jumped the gun. Oh well, the model I referenced might work for you as well.

Thanks for the answers, I'll probably get the Aosu WR M due to the size and characteristics I heard on reviews, thanks! :D

I recently got the WRM 2020 stickered cuz I like the look and feel of stickered cubes better and I went back to the Valk Elite as my main. I don't wanna get another Valk Elite just to have it stickered. Would I get a similar feeling cube to the Valk Elite with a Valk M?

Not really, there is quite a significant difference, there isn't really much like the valk elite, it's quite a strange cube especially with the centre-edge magnets, I'm really not sure what I could recommend for you as an alternative though, all the QiYi cubes are distinctly different (thunderclap v3m, wuwei, valk power, MS...)

a Pokedex or somewhere near you.
Is the qiyi clock worth it as my first clock? Or should I get the ssm clock first, and then see if I like the event?
QiYi clock seems exorbitantly expensive even if you're already a pro at clock, but if you want, go for it, I have heard that the quality of the clock is fantastic, but the SSM clock is a solid choice if you wanna get into the event and don't wanna sell your house.

If $30 won't break the bank for you, then I'd say get the Qiyi clock. That way, if you don't like the event, you'll know for sure it isn't because of the quality of the puzzle you used.
