Cube Spotlight Series: Pauper Cube March 11–18

Welcome back to the Cube Spotlight Series! After over 10 years maintaining the cube, Adam "Stybs" Styborski, member of the Commander Advisory Group (CAG) and Magic esports content and coverage teams, is ready to share Pauper Cube on MTGO. Entry options include both League and Single-Elimination Queue, and events cost 10 Event Tickets or 100 Play Points. Pauper Cube runs from March 11–18.

All undefeated players get their trophy and a copy of Pauper staple Thorn of the Black Rose! And because this is a bit of a special occasion, don't forget to login to Magic Online by March 18 to redeem the code "PauperCube2020" for your copy of Standard Bearer from Apocalypse.
