I'm striving to create/maintain a consistent, weekly "gathering" of competitive (but always cool, friendly, and fun) Magic the Gathering Players for 8-player drafts, casual one-on-one battles, and Swiss tournaments. Basically whatever format the group or players for that week decide we want to tackle.
Me and my friend Nicolai have spent a lot of time building and honing a pretty solid Cube (if you've never Cube Drafted before feel free to message me about it so I can tell you how much fun it is) to draft out of.
I usually host the meetup at the school where I work, in Union Square, in the conference room here. Ideally every week there would be 8 players gathering (pun intended) to draft out of the Cube and play a mini-tournament.
I've been experimented recently with "Team Drafting" which has proven to be a lot of fun. Basically that works with the 8 players splitting into two 4 player teams and then drafting and then helping each other strategizing deck builds.
I also want to mix things up with Constructed formats as well (most likely using Modern decks) or Standard draft days, depending on what everyone wants to do.
Anyway...if you think you'd be interested join the group and lets play some Magic.
