comment Why play Land Grant?
@JSBᾶngs Don't forget that Belcher can also work like a storm deck when it's going off on Empty the Warrens. I have played a lot of Land Grants with nothing to fetch just to increase storm count.

comment Why play Land Grant?
@JSBᾶngs They don't apply here at all. I just wanted to leave a more complete answer so that anyone who reads this can extrapolate for other cases. I will highlight the answer to be clearer.

comment Recommended strategies for the MTGO Cube
@ghoppe I believe the answer will be a lot different, specially because the card pool is known. It's different to ask for general draft strategies or INN draft strategies, for example: in INN draft we can actually talk about decks like self-mill with spider spawning. In cube it's the same: there's the general archetypes like aggro, control, etc, but you can also build something a lot more specific like reanimator, burn, wildfire, ramp, white weenie, etc.

comment How can I beat green Tron with a control deck?
@AlexP I don't think Realm Razer is that good unless you can kill it before the ETB trigger resolves. A simple Pyroclasm will bring all lands back to the battlefield.

comment What game mechanic can be used for evenly selecting other players but not yourself?
@Jefromi You are right, and I didn't think my comment that throughly as well. :( If every player has it's deck it's the same as non-relative positions. And if the deck is shared, than there is no telling the distribution will be the same. I shouldn't be so quick to vote answers up!

Love this answer! Using relative positions is elegant and works for every different variation discussed in the comments! Simply wonderful :D

@Andrey I think he was suggesting you remove every card EXCEPT when players select themselves. In that case just put the card in the bottom. In any case, this can lead to players knowing when each card is coming around.

Another clarification: is the selected player open information for all players or is he/she only known by the selecting player? @thesunneversets i like this idea because it's the closest to the described scenario, but this only works if the selected player is open information, hence my question.

comment What game mechanic can be used for evenly selecting other players but not yourself?
Your suggestion creates a different scenario than the one described. With a deck for each player it basically means that every player will end up selecting each other at least once. With a single deck that may never happen, because I may never stumble on a certain player's card because other players keep selecting it and I keep "skipping" it. I'm not saying it is better or worse, only different :)
