game 2 I dont remember much of but I know i ended up winning...

Round 2 (gainsay-5C aggro?)
In game 1 i got completly rolled by the amount of 5 power guys he had with a vagrant plowbeast. He was able to regen his guys while i couldnt.

Game 2 went the same and thats where i was out...

p1p1 I take the thrinax, though I think you pick is okay

p1p2 lackluster pack I take the druid, with what you took I agree with pick

p1p3 good decision I would not write esper of just yet but this pick stops your draft being a disaster if the person next to you is in esper, I also take shrine with what I have

p1p4 right pick I take same again

p1p5 I agree though I would also love the igunar, infest, splinters

p1p6 I agree on the logic but I take the bant panorama as I think its better fixing

p1p9 I think I like the throctar more but your pick is fine

p2p2 More of a question here just how high a pick is slaughermaster, Ive been impressed when paired vs him myself but I never take him, I know im underrating him but how much?

p2p3 I like more fixing in the form of absord vis

p2p6 I would have still gone thrinax, your not always going to draw both and even if you do, hes not invincible and does sometimes have a target on his head

p3p1 I agree the blade is better your okay for fixing im even better as i have a vis

p3p5 What I do to decide when I have a choice between to similar powered cards is look at how my colour are distributed and take the one which is easier to play, which in this case is the drake but you have to try stuff also, also with your low curve of aggresive hasty guys the drake has alot more synergy

p3p6 you have 3 blades two of which love turn 1 border post, this is the worst pick you have made so far by some way

Note how the bant pamorama would have worked out as a much better pick than the obelisk its almost always this way.

Overall the draft was solid but with definate room for improvement.
