since it's the first pick, i think you just default to mulldrifter, cause you'll probably play it no matter what

Personally I would take thundercloud shaman, granted it is a higher risk than mulldrifter as you could get giants cut, but the reward in terms of power level in limited is far greater. Thundercloud shamn is simply the nuts in giant decks and i never find giants overdrafted also mana fixing is less frequent now with one less set of vivids. Through out the entire of LLL I never lost a draft when i had thundercloud shaman in my deck.

honestly, i couldn't call either of those picks, or silvergill douser, wrong. but i probably wouldn't take peppersmoke or purity over those other 3

Yeah mulldrifter all the way. You can easily play it almost no matter what you're playing. Screw purity, it's WWW. Mulldrifter is amazing. Silvergilldouser would be my second pick from that pack.

take the shaman. next person will tke purity or mulldrifter. next will take that or douser. by taking shaman you are setting TWO, count'm TWO players on your elft into blue and the others into nothing red.

thundercloud shaman for the signal wins.
giant's also got better with banneret, warspike changeling, and more fficient early-drops from morningtide.

putting the 2 people next to you in blue does nothing, as mulldrifter can be played in anything and douser is in faeries/merfolk, it rly depends on personal preference, usually people like to draft different things so choose which ever your more comfortable drafting

I have to agree with Thundercloud Shaman here. It's the best signal, it's amazing if you're in red even without other giants around, and it's the stone cold nuts if you do have other giants.

gypsy, putting your neighboors into blue means that you get all the good red cards...

Plus, you know not to go into blue yourself.

Blue isn't that good when two players are fighting for it right next to each other.

Mulldrifter or TC Shaman, yea. Mot of the time Mulldrifter but I get moods for going giants too. Mulldrifter is certainly safer so it prolly is the right pick.

:Edit: And mind you, Mulldrifter can be splashed and is worth it.

making 2 people "fight" over blue doesnt mean much as one card goes in a tribal deck while the guy who takes mulldrifter can play gb with mulldrifter or anything else he doesnt rly have to fight for blue if he doesnt want to so i dont see why mulldrifter isnt the right first pick unless you just feel like drafting giants, or maybe its just me but i really hate red in draft
