Okay Im putting this up because i never draft 5cc control but I did and lost first round to an opponent who had malfagor, caldera hellion and godshire and drew all of them exactly when he needed of the top of his deck. His deck was to slow to beat anything but a deck like mine and also had no fixing what so ever all 3 games lasted ages so i got to see most of his deck.

Alright, as always, purely my opinions.

Anyways, here goes:

P1P5: Naya Panorama > Fire-Field Ogre

P1P8: Grixis Panorama > Cloudheath Drake

P2P1: Necrogenesis > Oblivion Ring > Resounding Thunder

P2P2: Blood Cultist > Skeletonize

P2P6: Naya Panorama > Fire-Field Ogre

P2P7: Druid of the Anime > Obelisk of Grixis

P2P11: Lightning Talons > Etherium Astrolabe

P3P1: Wall of Reverance > Fleshformer

P3P2: Exotic Orchard > Rupture Spire (Have to comment on this one, what were you thinking?!)

P3P7: Gleam of Resistance > Vectis Agents

P3P9: Nacatl Hunt-Pride > Goblin Outlander

P3P11: Elder Mastery > Suicidal Charge

I honestly think you weren't through half of this draft all wrong, but what do I know, I'm a terrible drafter myself.

Anyways, that's just my two cents. Good luck on your next draft, I'm waiting to hear how it goes.

Yeah as I said when i did the draft I was drunk so its not the best, the exotic orchard pick seems very bad i could sell that for a few ticks also, I still think the deck ended up very good.

I think the draft went awry on P1P2. Did you intend on forcing 5-color? Because I would have absolutely second-picked Resounding Silence there, already having a bomb in white. I then would have gone blue as a second color, and decided upon G or B as a splash.

Also did not see silence I'd drunk half a litre of vodka when I did this draft, does seem like a more open pick, I just felt that white was getting cut pretty hard, I never go 5cc just the way it worked out this draft. It probably would have worked out better if i was sober I was still drunk when i posted this also so to be honest its not really a shinning example of how to draft but it was fun at least.

in a 4-3-2-2 at the beginning of a release everyone is going to be terrible. You should take advanatage and go 5 color every time.

You should of
BBolt>Thunder. RW has to lead into RWG anyways

At end of pack 1 you have green obelisk and savage lands.

Necro>Thunder

Skeletonize is a million times better then blood cult always.

Wall of Reverance>Fleshformer. The fleshformer sux even in 5 color.

I would just take a dude like Kranioceros over the 3rd sphere. You already have all the fixing u really need.

Pestilent Kathari> Outlander to give you more defensive variety.
