How about watching some of the most popular Magic streamers playing the Holiday Cube on Magic Online today on Is that something you might be interested in?

Of course it is!

This month marks the first episode of a monthly streaming program we're calling Streamer Showdowns that features two eight-player Draft pods boasting a number of popular streamers battling with one of the latest Magic Online sets—in this case, the Holiday Cube.

Don't know what the Holiday Cube is? It's a Cube featuring the most powerful cards in Magic's history, including Black Lotus, Ancestral Recall, and, a personal favorite, Vedalken Shackles (which is basically unbeatable).

This month, the streamers showing down include a bevy of popular streamers, Pro Tour competitors, Grand Prix winners, the melodious voice of Pro Tour coverage, professional funny people, several bastions of the community, and also Frank Lepore! (We kid because we love you, Frank.) Check out the times they'll all be streaming:
