I go by Stypher or Luke (Irl Lucas) and I want to try and revive Drafting here at Magic League. Just a little background on myself first of all to try and let you guys get a better feel on my angle. I have been a magic player for around 8+ years and have been drafting almost everywhere (2 - 3 times) since i started.

I love drafting (and the occasional GPT or PQT) and i use to draft here about 3 years ago and the drafting scene was pretty good. We use to get drafts here about 3 - 4 times an hour! Now i never see drafts ever. Its time to change that my fellow draft lovers!

I know people are going to say "Derp its modern season no time to draft!". So I have decided to give out incentives to draft again! I currently have about $30,000 worth of magic cards being used as a Computer Monitor Stand. I have decided to offer some of it as prizes for a drafting league!

Think of Chuck-e-Cheese and Drafting having a baby, voila! That's the jist of my idea. I have included above my idea of how the tournament should be built upon and how prizes will be given out!

So players will be awarded points based on match records and placement in draft. They can then redeem points for cards basically!

Please let me know how you guys feel about this! If i can i hope to revive drafting! Please leave a comment!

My available hours are pretty limited (mostly evenings PST/US west coast time zone), but this would get me playing at magic-league again.

Would it be better if i did exact time drafts? or just have them spammed in IRC with the bot like in the past? I can do something like drafts at certain times and do a pre-signup here on the forums for each draft. So i would open a new post for each draft sorta like

I have added 2 new pages in the limited thread.

Point Board which shows the current points players have accumalated.

Match Info shows match records of previous drafts and how placements as well

Also updated is the Main Draft League page. I have included new links and directions on installing CardHover which improves netdraft by 100 times. Please let me know how it goes for you guys!
