Designing Set Cubes
Andy and Anthony are joined by Aran, from their local playgroup, to talk about the design of Set Cubes. The talk about the spectra of ways to approach building Set Cubes ranging from faithfully recreating a limited environment, to loosely basing a Cube on a set or theme. They also talk about how they can be one of the easiest entry points to Cube, offering a starting point that already leverages the themes and balance of a limited environment that Cube designers can build off of.
They finish the episode with a pack 1, pick 1 from Aran’s Kamigawa Remastered Cube, which he started by sleeving up a curated selection from a box of Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty and has iterated on as we’ve been drafting it.
