When drafting Vintage Cube, I find it very important to establish the identity of the deck you’re trying to draft early on. A disjointed deck with a high enough power level can win, but a calculated spread of threats and answers with an appropriate mana curve make it much easier.

First take some time to consider what card you would pick and what you would want a deck with that card to look like. Then check out my thoughts on where the various options go and what I picked!
