My name’s Tom, commonly known as Sexyindiancurry on MTGS, and 61981 on MTGO, and I am a cube addict.
It all started in october 2006, around the release of Time Spiral, when I learned the rules of a game called Magic:The Gathering. I quickly accumulated a small collection of cards, and by 2008, was a regular player in my regional prerelease, ranking mid-bottom each time.
I loved it. MTG as a game was great fun, but I didn’t enjoy playing constructed as much as I did limited. To this day, I have never played in a constructed tournament. Nowadays, I still come to the same prereleases I did before, but now I’m ranking middle-top in a respectable place.
I then read this article, and learned what a cube was. I then forgot about it, and then just about around the release of conflux, I resaw the article plugged somewhere, and thought, yknow what? I wanna do that. So I grabbed together a load of my cards, put them in a box, and started drafting with my friends.
It was truly awful. The cards were terrible, and looking back at that list, I’m actually a little ashamed. But it was still fun. It didn’t matter how bad the cards were, because we were still having fun.
Flashforward to now. I’ve just found out how to properly proxy my cube, and now I’m quickly accumulating power and duals and wonderful things.
Now, I’ve got a friend who’s starting a cube, and the fact that I can help him start, and try to help other new cubers on MTGS, meant I felt I could write about cube; So here I am, about to write about cube.
I’m hoping my articles can be a mix of how to draft cube, and how to make a cube, and how to make a cube on a budget.
Wish me luck!
