The Draft Cube

Back to home page

The Draft Cube is a 270-card Magic drafting set designed with card synergies in mind. The set has enough cards for six players to draft all the cards -- the full set shows up in each draft. However, there is just one copy of each card (with the exception of Brothers Yamazaki).

Cubes typically focus on the best Magic cards printed in the game's history. This cube isn't that kind, though the power level is significantly higher than TDB. The set compares to Modern Masters, except drafted as a cube (static card pool, one of each card).
