Even for grizzled veterans like myself, Holiday Cube season remains a special treat. It can, however, be a difficult format to navigate, so a draft walkthrough may be helpful to those with less experience. Whereas it’s usually best to stay open for a while when drafting, in Vintage Cube, you’re more incentivized to commit early. And as you’ll see, signaling is overrated; many have concluded that it’s best to completely disregard who they’re passing to.
Easy Time Walk. Not much to say here.
This is pretty lucky. Naturally we’ll be taking the Mox, as I like them more than everything but Black Lotus, Ancestral, Time Walk, and Sol Ring (in that order).
Because we took power our first few picks, we’re staying open longer than usual. Here, I take Gilded Lotus, as it can help with degenerate midgame turns in a variety of archetypes. (Plus Upheaval will probably wheel, loooooooollll.)
This pack’s kind of wretched, but because of Time Walk, Snapcaster Mage is the easy choice.
Alright, this is cool. Another weak pack, but Regrowth gives us yet another way to take extra turns.
