Set Prospective

Strixhaven: School of Mages

May 10th, 2021 — Jett Crowdis

This article is one of our set prospectives, a series in which we survey the Cube community about the cards they intend to play in their cubes from a particular set. Our survey is conducted between the set’s full-spoiler and official release and is meant to measure and document Cube designers’ first impressions of new cards.

Results
“I'm considering including the Learn/Lesson cards as a package, as a way to increase sideboard flexibility in environments where loose cube spots are easier to come by.”
