I doubt it will return that soon. I'm expecting it in the lull between Gatecrash and the third set, where we used to have old sets like Mirage or Master's Edition sets come out.
Why do we not have an answer on this? Prerelease is only 3 weeks away. You need to let your customers know what's going on. The lack of communication, as usual, is just pathetic.

Cube will be back prior to Gatecrash. Both announcements will be up early next week.
The Cube article is now up on DailyMTG!
I think ZZW is a good choice for the OOP-draft. Modern and Legacy needs the fetches, and Legavy needs Jaces.However, only available as 4-3-2-2 is annoying, and why is there a 2-ticket rpricetag tacked onto the draft again? There was for the longest time something called nixtix. Should we assume that nixtix is a thing of the past?
I think the nix-tix weekly rotation was quietly put to rest a while back. Was there ever an announcement about this, or did it just disappear one day and noone complained enough to make it an issue?
Yeah I sorely miss the regular out of print drafting. I really miss having a schedule for them so that I knew we'll in advance what days I wanted to reserve some extra playtime for my favorite old draft set. Not having a "in print" classic set as well is also a bummer.

Not having a "in print" classic set as well is also a bummer.I have to agree with this. I don't understand the "less options is better" mentality that MTGO seems to have moved to. Magic has a great history, and some draft formats appeal more to some people than others. Getting to draft something new is obviously awesome, but it gets stale after a while, especially when it's not a great draft format.The last 3 newest draft formats have been fairly lackluster. RTR and M13 were merely average, while AVR is one of Wizards' worst efforts ever. It's really nice to have the option to draft older formats. And unlike Cube, which clearly cuts into new set drafting, throwing up a ROE or Shards or OTJ queue every once in a while is not going to make a dent in new set drafting.
MTG has a huge learning curve, so there's alot of choice paralysis for new players with all the possibilites. Besides being able to deduce that logically, I think their market research may also back that up. So, yeah, it sucks for us entrenched players.I'm on the "more options" side myself, but I certainly understand catering to the newer folk. I think a better soliution, though, would be a better way to organize the draft queues so that it doesn't look so confusing to newer players but the older players still have the most possible options.
