How to Draft Aggro Decks in the MTG Arena Cube

Arena Cube is comprised of some of the most iconic cards ever released on Arena, and it makes for a fun way to play Limited. You get to draft with powerful cards, including the likes of Swords to Plowshares and Demonic Tutor that were deemed too powerful for Historic. Arena Cube draft events will be available January 6 to 20, and the Decathlon Finals on January 8 to 9  is Cube Draft as well.

So imagine you open the following pack. What would you take?

Pack 1 - Elspeth Conquers Death, Torrential Gearhulk, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Glorybringer, Thragtusk, Polukranos, Unchained, Field of the Dead, Skyclave Apparition, Sublime Epiphany, Languish, Scorch Spitter, Oracle of Mul Daya, The Scarab God, Sacred Foundry, Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

That’s a lot of goodies; so many great cards!

My pick?

But I’m going into Cube Draft with a mindset of drafting a style of deck I enjoy, and my preferences are a bit different. My Cube drafting philosophy is based around three pillars.
