I understand that this is your second draft, but you made quite a few mispicks throughout the draft. This draft may not have been the best one to try to force RB (which is generally not a control deck btw, but an aggro deck) but since you wanted to go that way, here's how I would have gone about the draft (with that mindset):

Draft 1 - B/R Aggro:

P1P1: Scavenger Drake
P1P2: Bone Splinters
P1P3: Crumbling Necropolis
P1P4: Blightning
P1P5: Corpse Connoisseur
P1P6: Soul's Fire
P1P7: Onyx Goblet
P1P8: Fleshbag Marauder
P1P9: Undead Leotau
P1P10: Blister Beetle
P1P11: Obelisk of Grixis
P1P12: Swerve
P1P13: Steelclad Serpent
P1P14: Jhessian Lookout
P1P15: Dreg Reaver

P2P1: Volcanic Fallout
P2P2: Hellspark Elemental
P2P3: Cumber Stone
P2P4: Sedraxis Alchemist
P2P5: Pestilent Kathari
P2P6: Zombie Outlander
P2P7: Zombie Outlander
P2P8: Brackwater Elemental
P2P9: Parasitic Strix
P2P10: Yoke of the Damned
P2P11: Traumatic Visions
P2P12: Voices from the Void
P2P13: Lapse of Certainty
P2P14: Traumatic Visions
P2P15: Controlled Instincts

P3P1: Jund Hackblade
P3P2: Sangrite Backlash
P3P3: Igneous Pouncer
P3P4: Sangrite Backlash
P3P5: Grixis Sojourners
P3P6: Jhessian Zombies
P3P7: Brainbite
P3P8: Monstrous Carabid
P3P9: Zealous Persecution
P3P10: Grixis Sojourners
P3P11: Offering to Asha
P3P12: Grixis Sojourners
P3P13: Drastic Revelation
P3P14: Mountain
P3P15: Brainbite

this is a hoax. Nobody in the history of drafting picks goblin mountaineer when they're trying to force RB control over crumbling necropolis. Also first pick bant panorama trying to force br control is epic win as well

well I guess im the first Razz . I have no idea what i was thinking when I picked bant panorama, I guess I didn't see anything I liked and picked it just in case I wanted to switch colors or something.

i'm pretty sure you mispick in almost every pack.
the two i feel the need to berate you for are p1p1 not taking rox charger (resounding silence is the other okay choice here), and p2p1, where there is no reason ever to not taking nicol bolas in a "grixis control" deck

my suggestion to you would just be to read everything on the internet you can find about drafting that is written by good players, and draft a lot.


p.s. forcing an archetype in this format is almost always a bad idea.
