This is an episode about how difficult it is to design a cube. First, Andy and Anthony do a pack 1, pick 1 from Anthony’s “Regular” Cube, which leads into a conversation about their most recent draft of the environment and the kind of feedback Anthony has received about it.

John, along with Cube Cobra founder Gwen Dekker, had the privilege of putting his own cube on MTGO for tens of thousands of players to draft.
