The letter T!he end of the year is rapidly approaching, and 'tis the season for the Magic Online Holiday Cube! The fun starts on Wednesday, December 18, 2013, and runs through Wednesday, January 8, 2014.

The "Cube" refers to the stack of cards selected for the format—in face-to-face Magic the stack resembles a cube composed of as many as 540 cards with no duplicates. The Magic Online Cube is made up of digital cards, and these are randomly divided into fifteen-card Cube booster packs used for drafting. Cube Draft encompasses many of the most enjoyable aspects of Magic: The Gathering, combining elements of both Constructed and Limited play, trading, and playing the game with friends.

Paired with this year's Holiday Cube will be the Flashback Draft Mercadian Masques until December 24 at 9:00 AM PST. Then, the Flashback Draft will change to a new format, Urza's Saga block, and then again on January 3. So check in throughout the holidays to see what's new.

Also coming this week is Magic: The Gathering—Commander (2013 Edition), which goes on sale in Magic Online December 20, 2013. These five Commander decks offer great Commander-format gameplay, bringing together some amazing cards in each.

There's a virtual sleigh-full of play coming in December to Magic Online!
