Hello all! It was a big week for 1E news, with several errata, a swap on the ban list (one card coming off while a different one went on), and news about the Balance Team. But now it's Friday and it's time for another question.
Today's question comes from Maggie Geppert, the CC's Executive Officer, and tournament host eager for feedback about a future Cube draft. This particular cube, created by Kevin Jaeger (Hoss-Drone), has been played several times over the past few years. Maggie is eager to play it more in Chicago, and is looking for your help. But I'll let her tell it:

The cube features Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Non-Aligned, Bajoran and Cardassian affiliations and mainly sticks to the Alpha Quadrant. Maggie Geppert (jadziadax8) and Brian Schaeflein (JeBuS) were intrigued by this format and decided to build their own cube with extra cards they had in their collections. Brian even wrote a program to create randomized, balanced packs for the draft. One of the features of this cube is that players are given random flavor packs at the start of the tournament to help shape their deck if they desire. Examples of the flavor packs are "It Sucks" (Black Hole, two Space and Examine Singularity) and "Cyber Jesus" (Continuing Mission, Followers of the One, Foster New Collective, Investigate Raid and all the personnel who go along with this.). Players who are interested in this format can check out a spreadsheet with all the packs in it here. Click on the tab called "Pack Cards" and scroll down to see the flavor packs. So this brings us to the Friday Question:What flavor pack would you add to this Cube?
Thanks for reading, and have a good weekend.
