This cube is great. I love the updates it gets, and I'd love to see even more updates with the new sets.

This is great.I really enjoy yours and SkieraCube that come with it by default.

Are there any more cubes here?
Are there any tutorials on how to build one's own cube?

I tried searching a bit but had no luck with the older posts...

More cubes can be found here -http://www.slightlymagic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=5176

Creating custom cubes is pretty easy. It's basically three main text files-

*.dck file defines your cube. This file contains the name of the cube and of course all the cards in the cube. Place this file in the res/cube folder

*.draft file is your draft setup. This is where you define how many packs your are going to draft, how many cards in each pack, rarity distribution, and basic land set code. Place this file in res/draft folder

*.sealed file is the exact same thing as .draft except for sealed play. Probably the only thing you are going to change is increase the number of packs from 3 to 6. Place this file in res/sealed folder

The above link has a lot of cubes you can download and use a template for building your own. Also, I would recommend building your cube within Forge using the deck editior.

Bump for 4-9-2015 update.

Sorry for the delay on updating this cube. I started playing another game that has been taking up more of my free time. I still MTG cube draft in real life so I will continue updating this in the future as time permits. Enjoy!

I've tried making a custom cube from the 93-95 cube on cubetutor ( http://www.cubetutor.com/viewcube/3752 ) using this method, but the only thing i get is a bunch of random card when i try to start a new draft. I've used the .draft from juzamjedi cube, editing only to 1 rare, 4 uncommon and 10 common.
What's missing?

Can you post your .dck file? Also, your .draft file needs to have the deck your pulling from in it. It should match the actual deck file name (minus the .dck) extension.

I removed the .txt extensions and places the files in the appropriate folders (/res/deck and /res/draft) and started a new draft and everything looks good.

You mentioned that you are just receiving random cards when you start a new draft. Are you getting cards that are not in the .dck file?

Yes, random cards from all the cardpool.
Ok, so the dck and draft files seems to be good, it's probably something in my installation (which is quite strange, trying reinstall from scratch now).

EDIT: ok, reinstalling from scratch made the trick. Thanks Senza!

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to mention here that I am almost done selling off my magic collection in real life. I will not be able to cube draft nearly as often as I have done for the last several years and I will not continue to maintain this cube list. I think the current iteration in the MTG Forge list is fun and can continue to be played as a default, but my hope is that some other eager cube aficionado will pick up the torch from here.

As a personal aside I also want to thank the Forge programmers for getting me back into Magic. I had taken a LONG hiatus from 2000 - 2008 and this program brought me back in. I ultimately amassed a paper collection that was worth over $15,000 and it all started because of this small freeware program. I don't know if WOTC people will ever read this message... but I just wanted them to know that Forge actually helped their bottom line indirectly.

So long and thanks for all the fish =D>

I just have a question, is your cube intended to be drafted as 1 mithic 5 rares 5 uncommons and 5 commons ?, or it had been an error all this time :P?
