This pauper cube contains at least 1 card from each booster expansion which contained new cards (expert level expansions, Portal, Un-, and Consipracy sets), as well as reprint sets with several rarity shifts (such as the modern masters sets). Other reprint sets with few rarity shifts (Nth Edition and Chronicles) and the supplemental sets (Commander, Duel Decks, Starter, etc.) were not considered to be mandatory, however their rarities were taken into account for determining rarities (Ash Barrens, Flood, and Forked Bolt).

Additionally, the other stipulation for this cube is that the only printing used for the cards in this cube is the first printing which a card appeared at common. Alpha and Beta are considered to be the same (Limited Edition) for this requirement, and Beta versions have been used for the better color and uniform card corners. As this is a paper cube, this means that paper rarity is the only thing that matters for determining rarity. And the determination for rarities of older cards is based off of the gatherer; so the frequency the card appeared matters, not which sheet it was on.

The only booster expansions which are not represented herein are: Unlimited, Revised, Chronicles, Starter 1999, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th Editions; as they either lacked any rarity shifts to common, or had so few rarity shifts to common that no reasonable selections could be made (and the bar for this is low, I'm running Yotian Soldier and Pulse of Murasa for comparison). Every other English language booster expansion should be represented; if you see an omission please let me know.

It is a point of shame that the lightning bolt I'm using isn't beta, but I slept on picking one up at $20; and now they're significantly out of my price range (and honestly I wouldn't be comfortable playing with one if I had acquired any).
