1 Voracious Hatchling
1 Wicker Warcrawler
1 Old Ghastbark
1 Oversoul of dusk
13 plains
4 swamps

Round 1 paired vs mono red, game 1 he starts out with a rush i stablize regain somelife with hatchling and proceed to win with crag treads, game 2 he has fast start again turn 2 cohort turn 3 ram gang for some reason he keeps attacking into my skulk with ram gang, I survive the onslaught and are able to stabilize and get oversoul down, i swing with oversoul and rider meaning he is dead next turn if he does not find an answer, he oes not.

Round 2 I mulligan to six first hand has 0 lands on the play, keep a 3 land hand with soul reap and 4 drops never draw a 4th land, game 2 first hand no land, second hand no land, third hand 5 lands including 3 swamps keep, i draw my 4th swamp and not very much action, two of the worst type of games, oh yeah he was mono white by the way not that it really mattered what he was as both games i did next to nothing.

Feedback appreciated

spectral possesions is a great card but heartmender is bordering on bomb and it leaves you open for either green or white.

There was no cragtreads in the warcrawler pack, I guess i kind of overlooked the heartmender it was prob at least worth a mention its never been that good for me what do other people think.

heartmender is definitly the first pick. its really good with all the -1 counters in the format obviously you can make a very hard deck to beat with heartmender and persist guys the synergy of heartmender and many cards in the format is too good to pass up i think

Heartmender over spectral ANY DAY. One needs heavy white, the other can be in any deck with green or white as a main colour. It also has far more potential to win matches.

I guess i underated heartmender then, ive seen it much latter many times in tripple shadowmoor drafts (all 4-3-2-2 though), when ever its been played vs me its not been that good and i've generally mostly won but i guess either those people had not really built a deck to take advantage of its ability or not drawn the right cards.
