You should explain why did you choose that and etc.
How the games played out/ how did you like the format would be nice too.
Posting just a pool and saying you went 1-3 is uninteresting.

looks about the same as my pool. I managed to go 3-1 with junk just putting the pressure on the other player and managed to steal a few games with 1 life left.

I would probably have splashed blue with your pool, i ended up splashing for 3 cards in my sealed, treasure hunt, the landfall draw 3 thing and a surrakar bouncer and all three of those clinched my games for me. you were lucky enough to get ior ruin and tideforce you couldve stalled games endlessly while hitting your opponent.

I felt scared of going 3c. I had no manafix, even though thinking of it now, Jwar Island and Pilgrim's eye could have served that purpose. This is probably the biggest of my errors. But what would you remove to get Treasure Hunt and Elemental maindeck? Most of my black cards were with cc BB.

Not going red has to be a mistake.

I actually didn't even see any possibilty other than R/W when I looked at the pool.

If I had that pool, I would go with B/R. Good removal, and good creatures. Wish I had a pool like yours mate, mine was simply horrible (Like having 2 Lullmage Mentor, 1 Halo Hunter and 1 Sphinx of Lost Truths as 4 of my 7 rares in the Pre Release Sealed).

You played with 7 packs? A sealed event is supposed to be 3 & 3... Where did you do your pre-release?

Creatures: 15
1x Vampire Lacerator
1x Ruthless Cullblade
1x Bloodghast
1x Plated Geopede
1x Highland Berserker ---> Ally
1x Bojuka Brigant --> Ally
1x Gatekeeper of Malakir
1x Cunning sparkmage
1x Goblin ruinblaster
1x Molten Ravager
1x Skitter of Lizards (I count him as a 3 Drop)
2x Nimana sell-sword --> Ally
1x Jagwasp Swarm
1x Obsidian fireheart
1x Hedron Rover

Spells: 7
1x disfigure
1x Urge to Feed
1x Spire Barrage
1x Searing Blaze
1x Slaughter Cry
1x Blazing torch --> I would not like to draw 2 of them to to the loss of speed when I want to use it but one is a fine removal
1x Kitesail --> your deck is weak against flying and could need some evasion for late beats, also the +1 power is quite good one your mass 2 power creatures.

I see the mana problems with Gatekeeper and Fireheart but they are too good not to run them both. Both are pretty good on later turns as well if played correctly.


1x Agadeem Occultist --> Ally --> I am not sure about him --> if you run him you run Tuktuk, otherwise not, with 6 allies including him he is borderline since you can't return your own creatures and he does nothing below 2 Allies 99% of the time
1x Tuktuk Scrapper --> Ally

Not to run BR is a huge mistake in my eyes. GL in the future. (Wrong!) The correct built is not as easy as that. Rw is an option but you lose quite a lot of speed and would have to play some fillers. On the other hand you gain some consistency and a lot more power.

Creatures: 16
1x Plated Geopede
1x Highland Berserker ---> Ally
2x Cliff threader
1x Cunning sparkmage
1x Goblin ruinblaster
1x Molten Ravager
1x Kor Hookmaster
1x Skitter of Lizards (I count him as a 3 Drop)
1x Pilgrims Eye
1x Obsidian fireheart
1x Hedron Rover
1x Lightkeeper of Emeria
1x Archon of Redemption
1x Sheperd of the losts
1x Battle Hurda

Spells: 6
1x Spire Barrage
1x Searing Blaze
1x Slaughter Cry
1x Blazing torch --> I would not like to draw 2 of them to to the loss of speed when I want to use it but one is a fine removal
1x Kitesail --> this or the 2nd Torch, you choose
1x Iona's Judgement

Lands: 18
10x Mountain
7x Plains
1x Kabira Crossroads

In the end the Rw Deck is better due to power and consistency, black just had too many marginal creatures to compete and not enough allies to make me want to run it over white. (2 More allies and I am Black for sure or +1 Ally, +1 Removal)

This is a fine 4-2 or 5-1 deck for a 6 Round Tourney.

Everyone cheats at pre-releases because there is no deck registration.

My friend went 3-1 losing in the last round to some kid with 3 burst lightning, 2 disfigure, and 2 hideous ends. I think his deck was 11 removal, 11 creatures, and 18 land.

He probably built most of it at home using zendikar commons.

Looking at the top tables I saw vampire nighthawks everywhere. One guy claimed to have opened 2 of them out of 3 packs. The odds of that are statistically bad and the odds are MUCH greater that he was cheating.

I would have gone black/red with a white splash for shepherd and iona's judgment.
