Back with my first aac draft its my second overall after a torrid time in sealed ive put things back right 2 out of 2 won so far, I ended up bant in both show Im only showing 1. I expect I am maaking alot of errors in the conflux part of the draft as its all still very new to me.

Steelclad Serpent
Marble Chalice
Naya Panorama
Cancel
Rakeclaw Gargantuan
Bloodthorn Taunter
Naturalize
Angelsong
--> Bant Charm
Thoughtcutter Agent

Nothing else is anywhere near bant charm in power level and mana fixing is better now.

Courier's Capsule
--> Akrasan Squire
Rip-Clan Crasher
Tortoise Formation
Lush Growth
Arcane Sanctum

Cancel
Obelisk of Jund
Volcanic Submersion
Elvish Visionary
Dragon Fodder
Skeletal Kathari
Steward of Valeron

I think its a really tough call between the welkin guide and bennediction both are underrated but benediction criminally so, so I took the guide as the bendiction may wheel.

--> Welkin Guide
Deft Duelist
Dragon Fodder
Skeletal Kathari
Keeper of Progenitus (FOIL)

Viashino Skeleton
Etherium Sculptor
Resounding Scream
Cancel

i see sanctum is correct pick, as you can go to esper, and splash the bant charm, you can go black after, the black passed to you pack 1 is not that bad after all.

like he wouldve known he was gonna get passed good black..

even in esper, i still like capsule more then sanctum (read sanctum gargoyle..)

capsule leaves you open, as sanctum is only worth the second pick if you go Esper..(which is really good, and over drafted atm on modo)

And you can't splash the bant charm unless you get the fixing to support the green..Its always a bad idea to set into a shard and have to splash your first pick on pick two..

the tri land is correct. while drawing cards is nice, being able to cast all those powerful gold cards is much better.

p1p7: spell snip is a fine card, but it's not anything you'll miss if you dont take it. Dawnray archer is much better

I got to admit I am not a fan of the capsule as my omission may give away I just find it to be very poor card draw. Yes with sanctum gargoyles it gets better but 4 mana for +1 card advantage is alot, think twice was not exactly a high pick in timespiral days and its on par with that. The sanctum was probably the right pick though but I love araskan squire.

Anyhow thanks for feedback keep it up hopefully I'll get another one done soon:)

p1p2 is clearly sanctum imho, I'd take the land, but gargoyle works too, there's a lot of hate for bant in the new set, kathari, charge etc.
