Our Streets of New Capenna survey is open! Please take a few minutes to let us know what you’re testing in your cube from the new set.

Caleb Gannon joins Andy and Anthony to talk about his Powered Synergy Cube which is about to be featured on Magic Online! Caleb goes into detail about the environment, which takes what’s loved about the MTGO Vintage Cube and dials up the synergistic aspects while tuning down other themes and cards that win the game on their own. The Cube is full of complex, overlapping themes and multi-card combos, and you can play it yourself starting this Wednesday, May 4th.

They start things off by talking through a pack 1, pick 1 from the list.
