OK, I'm keeping this simple.
Here is a spreadsheet of the cards in my CUBE:

Here are the dice:


If you'd like to make a cube of your own, and not sure how to draft it (or want a better way to open a Gravity Feed!!!), try this out: Google: Winston Draft.

    The dream, and point, of the cube is to create it's own meta. Like little cup does. The choices were made by my son. Stuff he likes and stuff he knows is good... It's a development in process... and at ground level!!!
    Let me play it for a couple weeks. I'll try to post results, and how the meta is shaping up...

    I updated my cube already. Turns out, I had too many unique characters and the rainbow was too many single dice... so I took out 6 good guys and 6 bad guys, and added 7 cards to the remaining characters for a new card total of 140.

    We did our first draft last night (with the current updated cube). Here's the rainbow:

    The basic actions are randomly chosen before the draft.
    I won the first game, and he won a very long, strenuous, and TOTALLY AWESOME battle the second game...
    Loki was a lot of fun! I use him to turn off Captain Cold, Namor, and Cheetah. Although Cheetah was already limited, because I played Cerebro on her early in the game.

    Katana was 7-8A most of the time. He also bought Deathstroke and Venom both games.
    Quicksilver was great for me the first game, not so much the second... I never assassinated anyone with Psylocke ... it was quite the struggle getting Zatanna KO'd... But once I used Crush Card Virus to KO her, KO'ing Venom, and dealing 1 w/ Nasty Boy's ability... That was fun! I actually bought a lot of the actions...
    He got me down pretty low... (16-2) We stayed there for what felt like forever!!!! and I was 1-2 points away from hitting him with lethal on 3 out of my last 4 turns... but he eventually prevailed!

    Looking forward to draft #2... as the JL didn't show up in our first rainbow...

    this is really cool! I'm still trying to understand what a Cube is and Drafting. We've found ways to randomly/select our guys but I think we need something like this. Now that we have hundreds of cards I like creating our teams with some random and some selection power.
    I have a question with your method. How do you end up purchasing cards that are 9 or 10 cost? When they land in the left position?

    I don't use this draft format any more. it was taking way too long. I now use Winston Draft.
    Cube is just a collection of cards. Building a cube is essentially just creating your own custom expansion set using your collection.
