Another draft I won again got back above 1800:), Im pretty sure I should have moved into grixis at some point I ended up splashing for a blood cultist this was a weird draft.

Event #: 235632

Cancel
Obelisk of Jund
Volcanic Submersion
Swamp (FOIL)
Shore Snapper
Steward of Valeron
Mosstodon
Goblin Mountaineer
Rockslide Elemental
Swerve
Protomatter Powder
--> Covenant of Minds
Island

The three cards worth considering here are the knight of the skyward eye, rock slide elemental and the covenant of minds. The knight is efectivly a two colour commitment and although rockslide elemental is okay with the format slowing down with conflux less of the awsome 1 drops and better fixing for control I think covenant has got much better so its my pick.

Pack 1 pick 2:
Dreg Reaver
Cylian Elf
Resounding Thunder
Vectis Silencers (FOIL)
Yoked Plowbeast
Dregscape Zombie
Carrion Thrash

Vectis Silencers
Deathgreeter
Kederekt Creeper

Deathgreeter
Kederekt Creeper
Magma Spray
Naturalize
Obelisk of Grixis
Resounding Scream
Bloodthorn Taunter

P3P1 I pesonally wouldve gone with the Leviathan cuz I value bombs so highly but overall another good draft. Just wondering, where have you been doing these drafts? On iDraft with random MLers?

Pretty humorous to insult the caliber of the draft (which was terrible) and then call Inkwell leviathan a bomb....

The drafts are modo drafts 4-3-2-2 referring to the prize structure.

Yes they are modo 4-3-2-2, as I said the draft was wierd in the fact alot of cards were coming alot later than they should but none of the people were that lowly rated, the guy I played R2 had a higher rating than I did, maybe they all got there ratings playing sealed I dunno.

P1P1: I kinda agree with the pick, I like the Covenant and Esper/Grixis/5 color.

P1P2: Rsounding Thunder is the right pick.

P3P1: You should really consider Sedraxis Alchemist. He's a big reason to play Esper, even though you might be a big short on aggressive guys atm, you'll probably pick up some in Conflux.

P3P3: Again, consider the Alchemist.
