Hi folks, this is the limited pool I got in a recent trial (SSE of course) and the deck I made from, it is easily the best pool I've ever opened and I'm still trying to work out what I did wrong, losing horribly.

Anyone want to take the time to give some pointers on what this deck should really look like or do I just suck at magic as a whole? Smile

Key Points:
2 Balefire Liege
2 Battlegate Mimic
2 Fire at Will
Godhead of Awe
Firespout

i think the version with red is more powerful and you made it quite right, but the manabase is a bit weak and mono white would have been possible too but much worse.

minus:
1 [SHM] Mudbrawler Raiders
1 [SHM] Pili-Pala
1 [EVE] Hatchet Bully
1 [SHM] Firespout
1 [SHM] Puncture Bolt
5 [SHM] Mountain (1)

plus:
SB: 1 [SHM] Reknit
SB: 1 [SHM] Somnomancer
SB: 1 [SHM] Watchwing Scarecrow
SB: 1 [SHM] Wicker Warcrawler
SB: 1 [EVE] Kithkin Spellduster
SB: 5 [SHM] Plains

but at least cutting mudbrawler(RR sucks) for somnomancer would be nice.

When I played a SEE draft a couple weeks ago I could have gone with a white base and splash another color, but with all the hybrid mana, I just ran it straight white. No fear of color screw, and really not jank stopping it up. I think getting 3 Silkbind Faerie and 3 Ballyknock Cohort with 2 of that white Retrace was kinda gooooood.

Yeah that guy would be nuts if he hit creatures as well, or even exclusively, but as it is, just not terribly playable unless you've managed to grab two or three of em along with a couple flamejabs or something.

-1 mudbrawler raiders
-2 kithkin zealot
-1 pili pala
+1 noggle bridgebreaker
+1 reknit
+1 somnomancer
+1 kithkin spellduster

SB the color specific stuff and MD the CIP stuff and spellduster cuz the format is game-breaking-enchantment ridden.

Hello everyone welcome to my weekly draft reports on my SSE drafts. Tonight, second place, which isn't bad but it was a smaller turnout than usual. So what I'll do is simply say the notable 3-5 cards in each pack and hopefully help people out there.

Pack 1:
1x Turn to Mist
1x Rhys the Redeemed
1x Scuttlemutt

This pack was really terrible lol, but I took Rhys.

Pack 2:
1x Rune Servant Rider
1x Mistmeadow Witch
1x Scuttlemutt
1x White Cohort Guy

This was a no brainer, took mistmeadow Witch.

Pack 3:
1x White Cohort
1x Curse of Chains
1x Puncture Bolt
1x Mistmeadow Skulk

Was tough at first, but I decided even though Puncture Bolt is probably the best card, I'm going to try mono white considering Mono colors are more powerful Decks, so I ended up chosing Curse of Chains.

Pack 4:
1X PRISON TERM (i was pretty pumped)
1x SILKBIND FAERIE
1x GLOOMLANCE

lol those were all still in the packs which makes me think green was getting fought for badly to my right along with red. So I took prison term although some people might think Silkbind was the better option here.

Pack 5:
1x Scuttlemutt
1x Barkshell Blessing
1x G/w can't be blocked by Red guys
1x Wicker Warcrawler

Took the Green white dude simply because I figured mono white was what I was in. And I knew there was red being drafted pretty heavily.

Pack 6:
a dream come true lol..
1x SHIELD OF THE OVERSOUL
rest was jank took the shield

Pack 7:
1x Safehold Elite which was crazy

Then a 8th pick Old ghastbark..lol i was pretty pumped to know white was not being drafted at all..and if it was they must of taken like blue white hybrids.

I'll add the next two packs in a little while kind of tired at the moment and it's good to keep people wondering. My first pick out of eventide made my night though =]
