cube colorwheel


This Commander Cube has recently undergone a metamorphosis. Now, instead of drafting the commanders with the other cards, we have two "Commander Packs", each with 75 cards. First, we take one of those 75 card groups, divide the cards into fifteen packs of five cards each, and distribute those packs, three apiece, to the five drafters. (We never have more than five players drafting.)

Then we draft each pack, so at the end, we have 15 potential Commanders.

Then we divide up the bulk of the cube, into six packs of 15 cards each, for each of the five drafters. Thus, the entire cube ends up drafted.

Then we pare down, match our cards to the general we had in mind while drafting, return the superfluous Commanders to the box (you are not allowed to keep any to put into your deck), shuffle up, and play.

The two "Commander Packs" contain all the multi-colored legends in the cube. There are no multi-colored legends in the cube proper.

You may notice, in addition to relatively "poor" land choices, that there are several staples noticeably absent. Where is Cyclonic Rift? Where is Sheoldred, Whispering One?

I removed them intentionally, as those cards are quite common in my meta. The aim of this particular cube is to showcase cards that we have that wouldn't otherwise see play.

It works!

So do you draft a commander deck? This sounds like a blast! Also, do you chose a commander before-hand, do you pick one up during the draft, or do you only draft commanders in pack one or something of the sort?

The commander is drafted just like all the other cards (except for basic lands). What usually happens with me is I find my commander in the first or second pack (each person drafts six), and that decides my color(s).

It is a lot of fun! :) I am glad you like the look of it. It's good for those times when you just want something a little different.
