Submission for Cube Draft League

Make sure you’ve read all the details on Cube Draft League before submitting!

We’re really excited to offer this opportunity to you. Cube is one of our favorite formats, and we’ve always been trying to figure out how to make more cube drafts happen that fit within our regular events schedule.

Cube Draft League needs to support at most 16 players each week. That means that the Cube Designer can either submit:
1) 720 card cube (16 players * 3 packs / player * 15 cards / pack = 720 cards)
2) Two 360 card cubes (above / 2)

- All types of submissions are welcome: powered, unpowered, pauper – whatever you like to draft!
- Typical cube construction, singleton cards only
- No proxies are allowed
- All English cards are highly preferred
- Card alters are acceptable
- Oracle text being on the card is preferred, however
- Offensive card alters are strictly prohibited

Submission Times

We are currently scheduling May, June and July. For this time period we will select unique people, i.e. one person can’t have a cube selected each time (even if they are different cubes – let’s give everyone a chance!). Naturally new Magic sets will be coming out during these times, so we have leeway with exact card lists.

Cube Designers can submit multiple entries, however, only one at most can be accepted.

Magic Event Tweaks

April 1st, 2014 is our three-year anniversary. It’s been a wild ride, and we’re always looking to improve. In addition to our huge schedule additions of Cube Draft League and Eternal Magic League, we’re changing a couple things here and there.

Monthly Top 8 Standard

Each month (schedule permitting), we will have a regular Standard Tournament with a cut to top 8. These tournaments, by and large, will be Magic Game Days and Grand Prix Trials. For GP Trials, we will proritize and schedule in the following order:
- Grand Prix events within easy driving distance to NYC, e.g. GP Boston would be weighted higher than GP Portland
- Grand Prix format is Standard, e.g. GP Los Angeles (Standard) would be weighted higher than GP Nashville (Sealed)

FNM Draft Prize Payout

Starting Friday, April 5th our FNM Draft prize payout will change to one pack per match win. All other drafts will be the normal prize payout. Undefeated players will receive an additional prize pack and the regular FNM promo he/she would regularly receive. Winless players will also receive a participation pack provided they play each round.

We want FNM to be a more welcoming environment for newer players, and we think this is a great opportunity to do so.

Saturday Draft Times

We are altering Saturday Draft times slightly. Saturday afternoon draft will now have a 3:30pm signup and 4pm start. Saturday night draft will have a 7pm signup and 7:30pm start.

Note that all night drafts regardless of day now start at the same time (Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday).

Changes are already in the calendar!
