This week’s episode is actually a late comer. We recorded this in the beginning of april, but ended up posting the Amonkhet review first due to it’s relevance at the time.
This episode wraps up the Horror cube discussion with a review of the inaugural drafts. The guys and their playgroup had a few jarring revelations during the draft and subsequent matches. The aggro decks in the format were exceedingly fast and overrepresented. They analyze why this caught them by surprise, what the possible changes should be, and discuss some of the other surprise decks in the format.
They also comment on Josh’s extravagant presentation of the Horror Cube’s first draft (pictures to come soon).
Enjoy this in depth discussion of how drafting a new cube can be, and how to make drastic changes to fix inherent design flaws. And look forward to next week’s episode on a completely new take on designing a cube!
