Finally I actually win one of these things I guess opening a bomb and being passed another helps, not even my computer itself could stop me from winning this one.

This is my thrid in like 10 drafts how lucky, this time i actually get to play him though.

Obelisk of Esper
Godtoucher
Kiss of the Amesha
Lightning Talons
--> Naya Charm
Grixis Charm (FOIL)
Titanic Ultimatum

Not sure what is the correct pick between titanic and charm, I reall y like the charm though so i went with that.

Lush Growth
Fire-Field Ogre
Skeletal Kathari
Kederekt Creeper
Tidehollow Strix
Courier's Capsule
Ridge Rannet

I also like this guy more than the guardians as i like to be the aggresor

Call to Heel
Savage Hunger
Ridge Rannet
Kederekt Creeper
Yoked Plowbeast
Dragon Fodder
Skeletal Kathari
Etherium Astrolabe

The plowbeasts come late pretty often and the steward seems like the best card for me.

Thorn-Thrash Viashino
Court Archers
Deathgreeter
--> Vithian Stinger
Drumhunter
Sigil Blessing
Etherium Sculptor
Esper Panorama
Crucible of Fire
Marble Chalice

It does not look like im making a deck in which drum hunter can shine, although red seems to be the least open of the 3 colours I am possibly playing stinger is just too good to pass

Pack 1 pick 6:
Undead Leotau
Gustrider Exuberant
Banewasp Affliction
Deft Duelist
Obelisk of Esper
Spell Snip

Scavenger Drake
Vectis Silencers
Kederekt Creeper
Death Baron
Deathgreeter
Swamp
Rhox War Monk
Resounding Silence

--> Topan Ascetic

Everytime I play this guy he is simply awsome, hence i take him over the silence

Demon's Herald
Naya Panorama
Sigiled Paladin
Steward of Valeron
Rakeclaw Gargantuan
Cradle of Vitality
Forest
Cancel
Sighted-Caste Sorcerer
Soul's Might

I think this is the clear pick

Outrider of Jhess
Glaze Fiend
Gift of the Gargantuan
Dragon Fodder
Island
Mosstodon
Sanctum Gargoyle
--> Oblivion Ring
Jund Panorama
Puppet Conjurer
Goblin Deathraiders
Carrion Thrash

The battlemage is good but i think the oring is a little better, as it handles anything.

Pack 2 pick 4:
Godtoucher
Jhessian Lookout
Dregscape Zombie
Dispeller's Capsule
Magma Spray
--> Jungle Shrine
Mountain
Court Archers
Demon's Herald
Resounding Silence

Swerve

Here i took the fixing over the spray or archers, a good decision i think.

Pack 2 pick 5:
Gift of the Gargantuan
--> Qasali Ambusher
Outrider of Jhess
Jund Panorama
Lush Growth
Obelisk of Naya
Topan Ascetic
Windwright Mage
Plains
Rip-Clan Crasher
Relic of Progenitus

I honestly think in most circumstances apart from versus super aggresive decks the asetic is a better card but people are always going on about how good this card is so i decided to try out and was impressed but not as much as i am with asetic overall.

Pack 2 pick 6:
Thoughtcutter Agent
Resounding Scream
Naturalize
Swamp
Jungle Weaver
Blightning

Pack 2 pick 12:
Godtoucher
--> Jhessian Lookout

--> Naya Battlemage
Naturalize
Jhessian Lookout
Invincible Hymn
Soul's Fire
Jhessian Infiltrator
Mountain

Obelisk of Bant
Bant Battlemage
Sphinx's Herald
Bloodpyre Elemental
Steward of Valeron
Cloudheath Drake
Grixis Panorama

Forest
Elvish Visionary
Salvage Titan
Obelisk of Jund
Behemoth's Herald
Cancel
Sighted-Caste Sorcerer
Knight of the Skyward Eye
Bloodthorn Taunter
Volcanic Submersion

Here i think the eye is probably the better card and the pick but i wanted to try out these ambushers and they seemed awsome in aggresive mirrors

Pack 3 pick 4:
Sanctum Gargoyle
Mountain
Island (FOIL)
Onyx Goblet
--> Tidehollow Sculler
Angelic Benediction
Volcanic Submersion
Tortoise Formation
Kederekt Leviathan
Obelisk of Jund
Tidehollow Strix

Nothing for me so i hated the skuller I have two bombs I positively do not want to lose

Pack 3 pick 5:

Hissing Iguanar (FOIL)
Sphinx's Herald
Skill Borrower
--> Guardians of Akrasa
Goblin Mountaineer
Agony Warp
Island
Viashino Skeleton

The igunar is the better card but red is my splash colour so guardians is the pick for consistancys sake.

Coma Veil
Waveskimmer Aven
Forest

sb cards of note

1 god toucher
1 gift of garganutan
1 lightning talons
1 crucible of fire (i should have played it and gone all timmy with my sarkhan and flameblast now thats overkill, would have been so awsome though.)

The games

Round 1 Ubw i get an aggresive curve on the play with turn 1 squire turn 2 eye turn 3 aestic, naya charm taps down his craetures ftw. Game 2 he mulls to 6 I mull to 5, but have turn 1 squire turn 2 eye, turn 3 stinger again, he does very little but cycle a card and lay an obelisk, I draw and play sarkhan he concedes.

Round 2 UBrg I'll sum up both games in one as they were some of the fastest ive played, 2 drop, 3 drop, sarkhan win.

Round 3 RB aggro, He has a stinger but i am beating down with asetic and are the aggresoe he takes control of the game at 1 life with skeletal kurathi, but i top deck stinger, which gets pinged by his stinger, but unearthed for the win. Game 2 he has turn 2 dreadge scape after turn 1 capsule, I have turn 2 sighted caste sorrow, followed by turn 3 guardians but he has spray, he capsules guradians and attacks in but i have ambusher, he unearths dredgescape and bonesplinters ambusher, I lay asetic followed by stinger he has undead leatou but I have stinger play naya charm, he has another but I have now played the flamblast dragon Ive had in my hand since the start dragon takes the game. Bombs are nice:)

Feedback appreciated.

Will comment in an hour or so...

Doesn't seem like a bad draft, I just have a few objections with some picks.

As a note, Gift of The Gargantuan...You hope NOT to play it? It's an amazing card, ALWAYS PLAY IT if you're green:/

Okay, let's see here:

P1P7 Welkin Guide > Cylian Elf

P1P10 Onyx Goblet/Obelisk/Gustrider Exhuberant > Godtoucher (Didn't I already say NEVER pick this?Razz)

P2P2 Rakeclaw Gargantuan > Knight of The Skyward Eye

P2P4 Magma Spray > Jungle Shrine

P2P7 Jungle Weaver > Naturalize

P2P8 Angelic Benediction > Yoked Plowbeast

P2P9 Scavenger Drake > Waveskimmer Aven

P3P5 Hissing Iguanar > Guardians of Akrasa (Go 3 color, stop focusing so much on splash, pick the better card. Besides, after Flameblast, double red will be hard to simply "splash")

P3P6 Lightning Talons > Punish Ignorance

P3P9 Infiltrator > Angelsong

P3P11 Goblin Mountaineer > Sighted-Caste Sorcerer (This is simply a matter of personal preference, I believe Sorcerer belongs in another deck and you can do so much more with a creature that will be unblockable in most cases

P3P14 (Talons tabled...surprise:P Still, I would have taken it earlier on)

As for the deck, -1 Angelsong and -1 Naturalize, +1 Lightning Talons and +1 Gift of the Gargantuan.

Just my two cents on the draft:)
