Again, why the desperate need for fixing? You're playing B/R/g. In any other draft format that is fine with zero fixing. I think branching bolt was the right choice there, not a 3rd panorama.

As far as I am concerened it is never, never right to play 3 colours with out fixing in draft it is far from fine. What formats are you refering to where its fine to draft a 3 colour deck with 0 fixing because I can not think of any.

On the behemoth I did not give it that much consideration to be honest maybe i should have but my decks end game and the high end of my curve was already pretty high. The devils and connsieurs really give you alot to do with your mana in the end game which is just alot faster than the behemoth, which strikes me as just another fattie.
