  • posted a message on The Sliding Stack Draft Format
    What happens when you combine a bidding system with grid drafting? Well, that's what I was trying to figure out. I came up with the mash up on the airplane, so it's only a rough idea at the moment.

    How it works:

    - Create a 4x4 grid of cards.

    - Starting from the top left corner and moving across the top, number them 5, 10, 15, and 20.
    - Do the same moving down the left side.

    - Now, to see how much a group of cards costs, your start at the most left card of a row, or the most top card of a column, and move across/down as many cards as you want, then multiply the number of cards you took by the value of that row/column.

    - For example, there's an Umezawas Jitte three spaces from the left and three down, so I grab that card, and all cards before it (either above or to the left), then pay points equal to (number of cards taken) x (point value of row/column). In this instance, it'd be 45 points.

    - Finally, the player ends their turn by sliding all cards in a row or column to the left or top respectively, then replacing the taken cards from the cube.

    The point system: Everyone starts with 300 points, and goes through 20 rounds, gaining 10 points per round, then builds their deck.

    I'm eager to hear your thoughts/questions/concerns, as I'm sure this isn't perfect. I do think there's the seed of an engaging 2-4 person draft format though.

    There is a valid reason this is different though. Colorless spells and synergy is a thing, and sowing salt doesn't support that.

    Timetwister and Time Spiral are good because you can use your extra mana afterwards. In a spell heavy deck, this will act similar, but most of the time it gives your opponent first crack at the new cards, which isn't good.

    Cube Vault fits everything for me with room to spare, I think 540 is probably the sweet spot to fit snugly with lands.

    2's everywhere! Lol

    Shifting Sharpshooter 2RW
    Creature - Human Soldier {R}
    When ~ enters the battlefield, it deals 2 damage to target creature or player.
    1W: Exile ~ with two time counters on it.
    Suspend 2 - RW
    2/2

    Acceptable or too weak now?

    I had it 1W because the bolt was the red part and flicker was the white part, if that makes sense. I could change it to 2 time counters from the flicker.

    Old blue foils are the best foils, followed closely by old artifact foils :p

    Here is a Mother of Runes alter by Sandreline.

    Thanks everyone! 😊

    Yeah, commissioned through French alterist Sandreline. The art that she integrated the power into is by Alfonse Mucha in the art nouveou style.

    Not a card alter for the cube, but this Playmat by Sandreline will definitely have many a cube deck played on it.

    Lotus Peddler 1R
    Creature - Merchant {R}
    When ~ enters the battlefield, you may exile an artifact card in your graveyard. If you do, add RRR to your mana pool.
    I knew he sold me the broken one...
    2/1

    Vorhal Drakos 1RR
    Planeswalker - Vorhal {M}
    +1: Add R to your mana pool. If that mana is spent casting a creature spell, that creature has haste.
    -3: Target creature you control deals damage equal to its power to target creature you don't control.
    -7: You get an emblem with "Sacrifice a Mountain: It deals 2 damage to target creature or player."
    {4}
