Back with another 4-3-2-2 lost in finals too an opponent who drew and played mycoloth every game twice turn 5, the one time he did not i scullered him and straight after he draws off top and i won that game. His deck was good but still.

Also I tried the draft converter thing but currently its not bring up CFx picks as images

P1P3: I'd consider Etherium Sculptor...

P1P7: Crap pack. I could take Vectis Silencers for SB versus fat green (even though you likely will get more of those), but probably would've picked Dawnray Archer, which can be played if you're short of 3 drops, or facing x/1.dec.

P1P10: Take the playable Steelclad Serpent here!

P1P11: ...or just wheel it

P2P4: Salvage Titan is a 6/4 for 6, which is pretty good. The fact that you can return him from GY in the long game is just sick. Much better than the bear imo.

P3P7: I could see hatedrafting the Nacatl Savage.

Look how you didn't even play the Knight of Skyward Eye. Of course, black turned out to be a splash, so maybe the Salvage Titan wouldn't make the cut either, but I think the chances are much more likely. If you'd picked the Steeclad, it probably would've made the cut, with 2 Sculptors and all!

As Ludz said, Salvage Titan was definitely the pick there. Recurrable Craw Wurm is always nice Wink

yeah salvage titan is quite good. It will always cost you 4BB, you never will pay for it the other way. Its true power comes with the ability to bring it back over and over again.

Just how I would've done the draft. Would've been better if you got a mechanist or two, so good in esper Smile.


P1P3 - Etherium Sculptor, I would stick with the esper plan at this point. The panorama doesn't seem bad though.
P1P4 - Same thing here, I'd grab the sculptor, he's better then people give him credit for, he's gone up with conflux
P1P5 - Windwright mage, doesn't seem great picking two sculptors before this, but scavenger drake is just meh in esper, you have zero removal so far.
P1P7 - Here I take the Dawnray archer, he's great.
P1P9 - Dispeller's Capsule, just how my draft is going.
P1P10 - Steelclad Serpent
P1P11 - Glaze Fiend (the sculptor techincally wouldn't be here anymore)

P2P4 - Salvage Titan, don't know how you chose Knight of the Skyward Eye here.

P3P5 - Parasitic Strix is just better then the Lich
P3P10 - I take the countersquall here
P3P11 - Unsummon for me
