  6. We had another casual draft at Mind Games in Burnaby. There were 7 of us, including 4 newer players. They were teens, and this was their first ever draft. They knew generally how to play the game, but we had to walk them through a bit of the process of drafting and deckbuilding. My first pick was a Kaya's Wrath (nice!). I took Sharktocrab with my second pick, and I wanted to stay a bit open. With newer drafters, I wasn't sure if signals might be messed up. I did waffle a bit (my bad habit), though I did pick more Simic/blue than Orzhov cards in Pack 1. My opponent on the left accidentally revealed his first pack as the Sunder Shaman, as he didn't know he was supposed to hide his picks. I guess I know what direction he wants. After a few bumps and misordered packs (nothing major), we got things worked out. Pack 2, my first pick was Kaya, herself... *urk*. Should I abandon Simic and switch to Orzhov? I was not seeing much good Orzhov in Pack 1. I picked her for value, but was second-guessing myself. I must have saw something good for Simic in pack 2, because I pretty much abandoned Orzhov soon after that, and ended up with a low-curve tempo deck with lots of tricks. Oh, pack 3's rare was Hallowed Fountain. Took for value Round 1 - Played one of the new kids. He had a Gruul deck, and actually drafted quite well for his first time. He picked on-colour cards, had a good mix of spells, and stayed focus. I did beat him 2-0, in part because his deck was a bit sub-optimal, although he had me down to 2 life in Game 1. After the round, I helped him re-build his deck a bit (he had too many spells, not enough creatures, and didn't include one of his better tricks). He seemed to be better off afterwards. Round 2 - Played against an experienced player with an Orzhovy-Esper control deck. He had the stupid mythic that made illusion blockers, which made it hard for me to get damage through on the ground. I won game 1 thanks to having 2 bounce spells to swing for lethal. He won game 2 because of his removal. Yeah, his deck was like half-removal... we ended up drawing because he kept killing my threats and he couldn't push through enough damage after I countered his mythic Benthic illusion thingy (can't recall the name). I sided in Eyes Everywhere for a slow matchup. Round 3 - Played the other experienced player who had a Simic deck, too. His splashed white and had a multi-colour theme. With the Guildpact artifact, he was drawing a LOT of cards off of his multicoloured spells. He also had 3(!) Pteromanders... I took game 1 thanks to the most aggressive curve my deck could draw into (even after a mull). Game 2 was a loooong affair, and he drew most of his deck. I somehow managed to slog through and wait out his Mystic (since I could play at instant speed a lot). Eventually, my adapters got bigger and just wore out his army. Final Result: 2-0-1. A very casual draft with newer players, so this isn't for bragging rights so much as relaxing and enjoying the draft format. Again, I keep ending up in blue

  11. I finally got a chance to do a paper draft of the new Ravnica set, although it was bittersweet as the LGS (Core Games in Richmond, BC) is closing. It isn’t THAT close to me (25-30 mins away), but my friend plays there almost every week. Thanks to rising rents and another LGS pilfering players away, the store is closing as of Feb 1st. 12 of us were there for the final draft, split into two pods of 6. I took Forbidding Spirit (Hey @MTGZuby ) with my first pack, as the rare was rubbish. For most of pack 1, I could not get a clear signal on what was open. I waffled between Orzhov and Simic (seeing both open), but also seeing solid blue spells. It wasn’t until pack 2 when I got the clear signal that Azorius was where I should be. I ended up with this deck, which was a little light on playable dudes. I ended up 2-1 with this deck, despite my first pack basically being wasted. The idea was to utilize some control elements and win via the flyers. Round 1 was against a Rakdos/Orzhov blend. They had 2 of the 3/3 life-drain thrulls, Electrodominance, the spell that makes you sacrifice the highest-power creature (Amazingly good against the Azorius 4/3 flyers), as well as a Rakdos Guildmage and the usual ground pounders. I was trounced in Game 1, especially after he returned 2 thrulls from his graveyard to his hand and slurped my lifeforce. Game 2 was quite close, as I barely got there with the remaining 4/3 flyer that didn’t die, plus the 2/5 unblockable beater. I sided out the Bring to Trial and something else for 2 Quenches. Game 3 wasn’t too close as I curved out with both 4/3 flyers and he draw no removal. Round 2 was against a very good Simic deck. He had Chillbringer, Sharktocrab, the rare druid, plus lots of other beef. He also had the clone spell to copy Chillbringer. Yuck. Although I won the match 2-0, I won both games by the slimmest of margins. Again, the flyers and unblockable did just enough, and Dovin’s Acuity was drawing me enough cards and giving me JUST enough life to get me over the edge. Getting acuity down on Turn 3 pretty much assured that I would keep drawing enough gas. Round 3 was against a brutal Jund deck. He had the mythic dragon, lots of riot creatures, and just enough removal. Giving green haste makes these decks hard to fight, especially if Azorius wants to cast spells on the main phase. I did manage to get the opponent down to 3 life in game 2, but I still felt like I was always on the defense. Once the dragon came down, I had no answer other than Bring to Trial, which was hiding in my library. All in all, I love how balanced this set is for draft. I just wish I had decided on my guild/deck earlier in Pack 1, although the signals were very muddy. If I could watch the draft on replay, maybe I could learn how to pick up things earlier.
