Okay back with another 4-3-2-2 i won. This is going to be the last draft i put up where i go blue red, there ample drafts for reference on the site of me doing exactly this and just dont think anyone is prob benefiting from them that much anymore. Dont worry I'll still put up other drafts just not this archtype.

Vampire Lacerator
Demolish
Pitfall Trap
Crypt of Agadeem
Relic Crush
Bog Tatters
Oran-Rief Survivalist
Trailblazer's Boots
Zendikar Farguide
Kor Hookmaster

A few options here, 2 white cards in hookmaster and trap i think hookmaster is stronger, oran-rief recluse but thats green, which leaves me with my pick merfolk sea stalkers.



Pack 1 pick 2:

Highland Berserker
Beast Hunt
Gomazoa
Giant Scorpion
Slaughter Cry
--> Roil Elemental
Zendikar Farguide
Bog Tatters
Mountain
Savage Silhouette
Reckless Scholar
Kazandu Refuge

Its a big commitment and fragile but it can also be completeely devistating nothing else in the pack can really complete so its an easy pick. Uncommon missing, bet it was black.

Pack 1 pick 3:
Desecrated Earth
Archmage Ascension
Brave the Elements
Swamp
Caller of Gales
Surrakar Marauder
Narrow Escape
Kraken Hatchling
Kor Cartographer
Trapmaker's Snare
Turntimber Grove
Expedition Map

Solid evasive early drop, i think you can make a case for the maruader but the tern is just a little stronger

Pack 1 pick 4:
--> Welkin Tern
Vampire's Bite
Spell Pierce
Island
Relic Crush
Demolish
Kor Duelist
Kor Outfitter
Bog Tatters
Jwar Isle Refuge

As long as the person next to us does not suddenly move into blue were setting up for a good draft, once again clear pick.

Seismic Shudder
Teetering Peaks
Forest
Runeflare Trap
--> Reckless Scholar

Goblin Bushwhacker
Vines of Vastwood
Baloth Cage Trap
Graypelt Refuge

Okay sorry for late reply, have been at uni all day. For me UR is the best archtype, good aggresive creatures, plus evasive creatures and removal, including domeable burn makes for very good draft decks.

Black is always overdrafted in my opinion, to many obvious first picks and not that many good mid picks.

The fireheart was good I only played it one game but, It did quickly win that game.
