Deck seems quite weak compared to your usual. I mean your playing 2 Glaze Fiend, Angelsong(2 mana cantrip) and an Obelisk you dont need.
Dont see much you could have done, I think probably 2 guys to your left jumped into Esper when they realised how open it was ( Late Sanctum Gargoyle)

Seems good overall, nice draft

P3P5: I probably would've gone with the Faerie here.

*EDIT*

Oh, your mana is probably good enough without the Obelisk. Go with the 2-drop instead!

Scourglass is as open as Branching Bolt. Usually it's not that good in naya but I would still play it in most naya decks. It's amazing in esper and good in bant (where you'll have more artifact than in naya). Braching Bolt puts you in jund or naya but it's also easy to splash in bant or grixix. It's still thr right pick.

P1P4: you should at least consider bone splinters.

P1P10: Etherium Sculptor

P2P1: clear mistake. I don't usually splash but this is the time to pick the bomb and see if you can play it in the end. I mean if you were picking something like a Tidehollow Strix (not that's that good but it's fairly good and in your colors) I would pick strix. But an obelisk? At the very least you take out a bomb from someone that's good against you and the cost is a mere obelisk. At best you'll have another amazing card in your deck if the mana allows it. And the obelisk is probably coming back anyway.

P2P4: were you sleeping on this one? Covenant of Minds is the obvious pick and even after that I would pick Bone Splinters which goes nicely with puppet conjurer.

P2P9: had to picked stoic angel this would be an excellent time to get that bant panorama. You didn't so Undead Leotau was the pick just in case you need a filler.

P2P10: correct but if you had picked the undead the pac before than spell snip because you would never want 2 undead leotau without access to red.

P2P11: again probably correct with the previews picks but with 1 spell snip already I would take volcanic because it's good against esper.

P3P1: Gleam of Resistance goes so late you didn't need to pick it right now. I would have eitehr hated out Rakka Mar or taken the awsome sb card Celestial Purge.

P3P5: I have no experience with Lich but a friend of mine says it's very good against non-black decks. EDIT: didn't see the faerie. That should have been the pick I think.

Your deck could have been better. Since you like doing these reports, with a little mopr effort you could put them in http://puremtgo.com They pay 18 credits in a site which means 18 dollars in that store. So for each draft you do this you'll get 18 tix to recover what you spent even if you lost in the first round.

Yeah I definitely would've taken the Angel P2P1, It's just too good when compared to an obelisk.

Ah yeah I missed the minds I did consider it but the reason i did not take it was it did not fit my plan, I was going a more aggro route dispite the glass. Simply swarm with fliers I had two glaze fiends already and had seen another I was hoping to wheel. Yeah I think i should have took the stoic angel now also thinking about it.

The cyclers no longer go late I have found on modo at the start you could rely on getting them late but now everyone takes them early.

The bone splinters was considered I simply omitted to say, as I try to get these things up as quick as possible and often miss things I did think about when typing up, I felt the strix was more synergistic with what I was trying to do.

The idea was to to race most decks in the air thats where song becomes okay and gleam better than it already is, plus if Im to far on the backfoot i can play the card advantage game. I've had sucess drafting similar decks before.

The problem was my opponets draws were nuts game 1 turn 2 deathraider, turn 3 shambling remians, turn 4 scavenger drake, the drake became huge reall quick and won game.

Game 2 he mulled to 5 had turn 2 death raider, follwed by iguana and proceed to kill every single creaure I played, he magama sprayed one, blister beetled another, the used splinters and bettle for another plus souls fire another guy, I stabalized at 2 life but he sill had iguana as I had to oring strix just to stay alive as i had no flyer, he was playing of top of this deck, i got down esper battlemage and a freshly drew aven squire, he untaps and plays blister bettle ftw. I think its the strongest game ive ever seen played off 5 cards.

Site looks like a little more effort than I want to go to plus I only play on modo so store crdit is not much use to me. Anyway thanks for suggestion and thoughts.

Store credit that you can use on mtgo stuff. Also if you do just 1/3 of the drafts instead of every draft and put the triple of the effort for each one you do you'll get paid for it.
