Goofy 4-pack team draft

We have been having a dickens of a time getting 8 people together at the LGS to fire a Rivals draft. I think we got there once in the last 4 draft nights. Lame. Anyway, tonight we got to 6 people and decided to do a mutant 4-pack team draft for the lulz. We split […]

First Rivals draft and WTF was this Houston DQ?

First pass at Rivals of Ixalan draft in paper down at the LGS. I P1P1’d a gold card, Dire Fleet Neckbreaker, and then tried to force BR pirates. I ended up with a few good blue pirates in my pool (e.g. Deadeye Rig-Hauler & Dreamcaller Siren) but not enough to try going 3-color. I think […]

Donestable

Did an Unstable draft at the store tonight. I would have preferred Iconic Masters but the majority present voted for Unstable and I’m no wet blanket! I first-picked a foil Grusilda, Monster Masher, which is basically like The Scarab God. Since I took that first, I just focused on taking black and red cards to […]

Iconic Masters Draft

Did an Iconic Masters draft at the LGS, this is the first one I’ve done, though I did scrub out of a sealed PPTQ on the weekend the set came out (despite having Consecrated Sphinx in my pool, because I am a shitty scrub). In this draft, I P1P1’d a Yosei, the Morning Star and […]

The Bird is the Word

Pack one, pick one, I open River Hoopoe and decide to force blue-green right then and there. I get some other good blue cards early, such as Eternal of Harsh Truths and even a foil Kefnet’s Last Word at the beginning of pack two. Somewhere in there I tabled a second River Hoopoe so I […]

Hour of Devastation

Have had some moderate success in my first few passes at Hour of Devastation limited. Well, in sealed at least; in my first draft I insta-died. In my first prerelease sealed, I went 5-1 with a base blue-white deck: Hour of Devastation Prerelease (2017-07-08)Lands (17)1 Desert of the True6 Plains7 Island2 Swamp1 ForestCreatures (14)1 Proven […]

Throwback Khans Draft

Did a sweet throwback Khans of Tarkir draft this week. I first-picked an Icefeather Aven and also got 2x Bellowing Saddlebrutes very early. I tried to stick to Sultai colors and was pretty pleased with where I ended up, despite not having any splashy rares.
