Draft Break

I gave up magic for lent. I'm not catholic, but my family is and I'm using it as an excuse to save some money. I need to save my cash for a spring break trip. Hence the lack of updates.

MBS Draft Results #4

I got to do MBS/SOM/SOM this time. Was pretty cool, but the draft was ultra wierd. Eleven people but white was very open. The guy next to me went mono red. Two mono colored decks at one table is pretty cool I guess?

I raredrafted alot at the start of my MBS pack and the people next to me were not raredrafting at all. I got shimmer myr, psychosis crawler, and phyrexian revoker passed to me. The start of a pretty cool metalcraft deck. Passed a knowledge pool in that first pack and I don't regret it.

I had a hard time deciding on a second color. At first I was thinking blue or green and picked a few things up but decided not to. I tried a red splash some time in the second pack, but come the third pack the mono red guy wound up cutting me. My third pack had carnifex demon but it was to late to go black.

When I looked at the pool the red splash was really appealing, bloodshot trainee + equipment is one of my favorite combos. I decided that I'd rather go for more consistency and do mono white. Plus, I was kinda sick of getting color screwed in all the dinosaur decks that I'd been doing.  Looking back, I probably should have gone a little red for the trainee, rebirth, and turn to slag.
