Back with another 4-3-2-2 I won with a gr landfall deck, this is quite an intresting draft for the wwk part and format in general as, it shows some of the new toys wwk has brought to a previously unpopular archtype.

Intresting pack there are 3 good options in skyfisher, boar and sell-sword, I like a stronger signal than sellsword to go black as there are just so many good cards, before wwk i would have gone boar here but i like gw alot with wwk so i went with skyfisher

Canopy Cover
Plains
Lavaclaw Reaches
Snapping Creeper
Roiling Terrain
Ęther Tradewinds

Veteran's Reflexes
Khalni Garden
Skitter of Lizards

What the eye over an on colour duel may seem like an odfd pick considering the value but my deck is heavy landfall, gear, pede, 2 different baloths and a geyser guider, so this card is really as good an open as gr land fall can ask for, plus it blocks turns and the 3/1 uu1 and other fliers

Tideforce Elemental
Pulse Tracker
--> Pilgrim's Eye
Ęther Tradewinds

Ruthless Cullblade
Grappler Spider
Arbor Elf
Battle Hurda
--> Searing Blaze
Ruin Ghost

Treasure Hunt
Rest for the Weary
Cosi's Ravager

Bull Rush
Kor Firewalker
Sejiri Steppe

What was your record with this deck?

Your p3p1 first pick eye was really dumb. On-color manland over 1/1 flyer every single time.

Also p2p7, did you really hate draft a 0/4 over a giant scorpion?

I have to agree with Trotky1's assessment on the Pilgrim's Eye. It thins, it fuels land fall, it chumps and it flies. I do not agree, however, with the p2p7, Giant Scorpion is much more dangerous.
