I don't really like it that much. It is unique and new but I don't really like magics that much. To me they are more like speed stack cups. It is a "how fast can you do the same thing" instead of a thinking thing.
Speedcubing is knowing 100s of different cases, then applying the a set algorithm for each case.
The fridrich method is also know as brain dead method, roux petrus ZZ and other block building methods require a bit more thinking.
Actually thinking during a speedsolve is likely to ruin your solve, as the best solves are closer to reflexes then thinking.
But I'm getting offtopic,
Interesting idea, as the cube is somewhat wider, the magic is now slightly bandaged?
Though not enough to pose a problem for solving it.
