Cube Pack Customization Options Available

Site Updates forum

Posted on Oct. 3, 2021, 1:38 a.m. by Femme_Fatale

Cubes have gotten a much needed revamp in how you can structure your packs.

Each pack and slot is fully customizeable, letting you determine exactly how you want to draft your cube.

When you go to edit your cube, just to the right of the cube's name, share list, sorting and grouping info will be the "Draft Boosters" collection of info.

  • "Name" is the name of the pack structure, this is what will show up when you go to select your packs when setting up the cube draft.
  • "15 Slots" is the indicator for how many slots that pack has. This number will refresh when you do a save.
  • "Define Slots" is the button that brings up the menu for building your pack structure.

Clicking on Define Slots will bring up a pop-up with a large menu of slots, defaulted to 15. The slots will be numbered from 1-your prefered number. There are 4 fields in each slot. Type, colour, subtype and rarity. These fields will determine what cards can show up in these slots.

Cards that go in the slot are specifically determined by combining each value within the 4 fields with the values in another field. For example, if you have a slot that has the type field filled with "creature", "artifact" and "land, and have the rarity field filled with "common" and "uncommon", then all the variables in the type field will be combined with all the variables of the rarity field, giving you 6 different combinations of cards that can show up in that slot.

  • Common Creature
  • Uncommon Creature
  • Common Artifact
  • Uncommon Artifact
  • Common Land
  • Uncommon Land

As you can see, if you have a lot of variables within these 4 fields, there will be a lot of potential candidates and it can be hard to keep track of it all.

There is definitely some more work that can be done here, but let us know if you have any ideas or think something is missing.

Happy cubing!

Draft sim has been unstable / unusable lately, haven't checked post this update, but commonly errors I get are:

Start draft leads immediately to an error with the draft not being available or something similar

Finish drafting only for card pools not to be saved and therefore a bunch of time wasted.

Hope this update has fixed some of these issues

Thanks! This is really cool! I've got a Commander Legends cube and now I can use TappedOut for it!

I do have some feedback that I hope will be helpful:

  • The subtypes aren't super clear. I would like to have a subtype for "legendary" for two of my slots but it's not obvious is that works.

  • It would be good if you could exclude a subtype or type from a slot. So for example I'd exclude legendary for every slot other then the two slots I have for my Commander Legends cube.

  • The Open Pack function still seems to only show 15 cards.

  • The draft function seemed to sort of choke on me and didn't really work.

Thanks again for the great improvements!

Fix one bug and another pops up, goddamit this cube update refuses to go smoothly.

Okay, all the "you can't draft" bugs should be cleared. Everything should be good to go.

Aaaand were back again!

Multicolor and Monocolor would be a massive help for my cube personally as my cube doesn't go off rarity but goes off Land, Artifact, Monocolor, Multicolor & Random

Aragon_Neotrix these are done

Thankyou yeaGO I didn't realise. Is there also a way to edit the number of cards in a pack? My cube is weirdly structured and only runs 10 cards per pack for reasons.

Aragon_Neotrix: use the add slot or remove buttons at the bottom of the pack details popup.

We have also added "has_backside" which is anything that uses our flip function (so transform and mdfcs). And Legendary is in the type list.

Femme_Fatale I have made a pack with 10 Slots but whenever I open a pack it has 15 cards and whenever I attempt to draft the cube it tells me I can't because there isn't enough cards for 8 people. My cube is 240 cards (10×3)×8 so there is enough for 8 people if it uses 10 cards per pack. Don't know if I'm doing something wrong

Femme_Fatale When using slots for something like 1 rare, 3 uncommon, etc with a cube that has multiples of cards... if one is selected you will often get all of the copies in a pack.

Here's an example: enter image description here
