So that's great and all, but what if you've never played with the Cube on Magic Online? Well, think of it as another Magic set that is made up of cards you've seen and perhaps never had the opportunity to play with. These cards come from a variety of Magic sets and thus when combined create a new and exciting draft environment.
As a phantom event it means the events require fewer tickets to enter, but you don't get to keep the cards that you draft. You do, however, get prizes for the event as described below.
