I probably would have gone with Soul's Fire in pack 1. It's a card that looks a lot sexier than it really is, but it's red and red is nice in this format.

A turn 3 Rhox War Monk is awesome, but more than likely he comes down much later and is much less impressive.

P1P8: Strix should have been the pick.

LOL P2P2 and P2P3 have the exact same commons. Print run?

P2P4: IMO here it's between Banquet and goblin outlander. You really want to play the least possible green and at this point you could either go BRg or BRu depending on what you open pack3. You could very well open a Nemesis of Reason which would be a reason enough to move to blue and this way you would have to give up less cards. I prefer th goblin.

P2P7: I dunno. The Mace gives you a real way to win games which you only have Cavern Thoctar and Tar Fiend. I would have picked the mace.

P2P9: Ancient Ziggurat. It doesn't work very well with those Absorb Vis but it's also nice in case you open Nemesis of Reason or something like that. I don't think you should expect playing Sylvan Bounty. I think I would rather play another land than this at this point.

P2P10: this one is closer. I don't think you'd want 2 anyway but since you didn't take it last pick you should have now.

P3P9: hating jhessian zombies or messenger falcons would have been better than hating that.

P3P10: Colossal Might this late! Tempting but I guess the bomber is a safer pick.

Anyway nothing really wrong I think just a few really small mistakes.

Anyway Mike is obv wrong. If you really didn't want to pick Rhox because it's 3 colors than knight of the skyward eye is the pick. I still think Rhox is the pick. I hate bant and still I'd pick rhox over most commons (agony warp, branching bolt, oblivion ring and the likes not included obv). With Rhox you can go GWu with some fixing letting you play it easily. Or you could go esper splash green or 5c. It's amazing in 5c because it holds almost every non flier costing 3 or less and even many that cost 4 or 5. It also works great with exalted. No reason not to take it even if you don't like bant.

BTW: if I hate bant and love esper and I still take rhox war monk P1P1 over most stuff than can you imagine how happy I am with a Tower Gargoyle P1P1?
