Quote from Purplemurasaki »This argument doesn't really work for me, as almost every card can be justified this way. Could you explain why Warhammer gets the nod in your cube, but Sol Ring is excluded? Would you play Library of Alexandria or Mana Drain if cost was no issue?
Quote from rantipole »Reflector Mage vs Geist of Saint Traft
Quote from SirPicaro »This is probably just me, but I would run the pixel art Serum Visions over any other version. That said, even if you don't want that kind of clearly non-MTG artwork in your cube, I think any of the other Secret Lair versions of Serum Visions are pretty good to run over any existing option if you run the card at all (though of course there is always the argument for that more organic-feeling original art and frame).
I'm also running the SL Bloodghast because I'm a sucker for having a variety of art styles, plus I love the idea of having a black card illustrated by someone who's worked for Iron Maiden (The LftL is pretty cool too)
Quote from VariSami »I'd probably disencourage external entertainment like Netflix since it'd take them out of the situation of 'Magic Night'. A good deal of people already watch Magic games on Youtube and such; seeing them live and being able to comment on plays that have happened should be all the better.
Quote from VariSami »I get the distinct feeling that many commentators have not played more than five games of EDH...
Quote from FunkyDragon »Now for my own question regarding peasant cube - what do all of you do when someone drops out or doesn't show up? I mean, I've quit inviting certain people after multiple instances, but what do you do the day of? You invite enough people for an 8-player draft, but only 7 show up. Do you play multiplayer like my group, or do you give someone the buy and just have them sit there, bored for a while? I keep thinking there's got to be a better solution, but I can't find one. We've tried calling other people, but getting someone to show up last minute is a rough proposition.
Quote from Narvuntien »Arggh! I am so frustrated its completely impossible to get 8 (or even 6) people together to draft the cube I have spent so much time on.
Quote from n00b1n8R »Does anyone else find commander the most dull way to play magic? Like you just sit there for 3-4 minutes doing nothing, then its your turn and you do your thing, then you go back to sitting on your hands trying to keep track of the 30 other random cards on the table.
