Episode Date
05. Aesthetically Unified Cubes with Stephen Konefal
2570

Stephen Konefal has designed many cube environments with the overarching goals of creating aesthetically unified spaces, whether by crafting environments based on place in the multiverse, moment in Magic history, or artistic impulse and style. We discuss lessons that Core Sets teach cube designers, ways of limiting new product overload, knitting together environments mechanically, the artwork of Magic that moves us, the value of cycling, starting one’s first cube, cube’s place between limited and constructed, and Steve’s impressions of Magic personalities.

Much love to super patrons Dylan Quern and Andrew Quist!

04. Make Cards Work for You with fleish_dawg
3807

Ben Fleisher, alias fleish_dawg, is brimming with ideas about how to modify existing Magic cards in order to better fit his design vision. You may have heard me mention Ben’s innovations in Cultic Cube videos. Ben and I discuss errataing cards, the value of diverse cube fora, the importance of empathy in design conversation, Ben's boardgame theory of cube, the best Star Trek series, advice for new designers, and our favorite Magic memory.

Much love to super patrons Dylan Quern and Andrew Quist.

03. We're on MTGO! With guest Gwen Dekker.
2991

Here’s a bonus episode that brings exciting news! WOTC is featuring one of my cubes and my guest’s cube on MTGO from May 13-27, 2020! Wizards is using two of the ten cubes that will be played in the main events at CubeCon, an event for which I am an organizer. The spotlighted cubes are legacy environments by me and by our guest, Gwen Dekker. Gwen is the creator and lead developer of Cube Cobra, which is an awesome cube management web platform. Gwen and I sit down together to talk about our differing design visions and we have sculpted cubes that provide totally different play experiences within the same general power band. Come join us for convivial and high-level MTG Cube talk!
