Intro

Cube drafting as a format is wonderful because you get to make all kinds of crazy things happen. You get to play with powerful cards that span the entirety of Magic and use them to crush your opponents mercilessly. This week on Forced Fruition, join me as I power through an un-powered cube with a blue devotion deck? Yup that’s right, we picked up the two cards that hinge on the devotion mechanic in blue and use them to great effect (you’ll see why in Matchtrust me its good). Along the way, we’ll also encounter one of the most complicated board states I’ve developed. I hope you enjoy watching this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. Please let me know what you think in the comments section and enjoy the ride.
