------ ALA ------

Pack 1 pick 1:
Cancel
Mosstodon
Soul's Grace
Goblin Deathraiders
Rakeclaw Gargantuan
Spell Snip
Volcanic Submersion
Swamp
Scourge Devil
Obelisk of Jund
Rockslide Elemental
Onyx Goblet
Invincible Hymn (FOIL)
--> Scourglass
Bull Cerodon

Its nice to always open a bomb pick 1 pack 1

Pack 1 pick 2:
Gustrider Exuberant
Undead Leotau
Plains
Sangrite Surge
Dreg Reaver
Filigree Sages
Resounding Roar
Welkin Guide
Jhessian Lookout
Obelisk of Esper
Soul's Fire
Bant Panorama
Soul's Might
--> Bant Charm

Its between the bant charm and the souls fire if were looking to play our scourglass which we are souls fire is just as much a commitment as bant charm and as the charm is alot stronger its my pick.

Pack 1 pick 3:
--> Fleshbag Marauder
Rockcaster Platoon
Obelisk of Grixis
Steward of Valeron
Mountain
Undead Leotau
Bant Panorama
Angelsong
Shore Snapper
Blister Beetle
Cavern Thoctar
Archdemon of Unx
Goblin Mountaineer

The marauder is the best card here and Im fine going esper as well when i have a scourglass, at this point I am now going to be valuing blue and white cards higher than other cards as thoose are the two colours we are most likely to end up going.

Pack 1 pick 4:
Shore Snapper
Keeper of Progenitus
Dragon Fodder
Excommunicate
Dragon's Herald
Waveskimmer Aven
Call to Heel
Kiss of the Amesha
--> Guardians of Akrasa
Island
Court Archers
Viashino Skeleton

I think ceratinly the court archers possibly the aven are better cards but the akrasa can be played in either bant or esper so its our pick.

Pack 1 pick 5:
Resounding Silence
Forest
--> Deft Duelist
Jhessian Lookout
Resounding Thunder
Jund Charm
Puppet Conjurer
Outrider of Jhess
Court Archers
Banewasp Affliction
Windwright Mage

Late Jund charm, sticking with what we know duelist is the pick.

Pack 1 pick 6:
Obelisk of Jund
Steelclad Serpent
Savage Hunger
--> Naturalize
Swamp
Lightning Talons
Cathartic Adept
Mighty Emergence
Blister Beetle
Angelsong

Hmm i should have took the blister beetle here over the naturalize I think, as its better if we end up esper and there is no uw pick.

Pack 1 pick 7:
Tortoise Formation
Wild Nacatl
Dawnray Archer
Plains
Cloudheath Drake
--> Kathari Screecher
Glaze Fiend
Grixis Panorama
Shadowfeed

Late nactal but with what we have we can not take that, so its between the drake and the screecher, I like the screecher a little more even with scourglass

Pack 1 pick 8:
Lush Growth
Angel's Herald
Forest
Protomatter Powder
--> Guardians of Akrasa
Gift of the Gargantuan
Relic of Progenitus
Outrider of Jhess

Best on colour pick

Pack 1 pick 9:
Soul's Grace
--> Rakeclaw Gargantuan
Volcanic Submersion
Swamp
Obelisk of Jund
Onyx Goblet
Invincible Hymn (FOIL)

If we somehow end up red otherwise its the best hatedraft anyway as there is nothing here for us.

Pack 1 pick 10:
Gustrider Exuberant
Plains
Dreg Reaver
Resounding Roar
--> Jhessian Lookout
Soul's Might

On colour early drop we already have a fair bit of exalted so its looking like what were attacking with will not matter to much so great.

Pack 1 pick 11:
Obelisk of Grixis
Mountain
--> Angelsong
Shore Snapper
Goblin Mountaineer

Pack 1 pick 12:
--> Excommunicate
Dragon's Herald
Island
Viashino Skeleton

Wow did not expect that to wheel the pack it was in was not all that great.

Pack 1 pick 13:
Forest
--> Jhessian Lookout
Banewasp Affliction

I think these are a fine early drop in exalted decks are its not like you want to be putting your exalted creatures into the combat zone most of the time unless you have too

Pack 1 pick 14:
--> Savage Hunger
Swamp

Pack 1 pick 15:
--> Plains

------ ALA ------

Pack 2 pick 1:
--> Resounding Silence
Vithian Stinger
Infest
Sunseed Nurturer
Mountain
Kederekt Creeper
Deathgreeter
Invincible Hymn
Wild Nacatl
Thoughtcutter Agent
Jungle Weaver
Hissing Iguanar
Filigree Sages (FOIL)
Executioner's Capsule
Hindering Light

The choice is between the capsule and the silence, the capsule is the better card but the silence 100% amkes our deck and we saw very little esper pack 1 so should expect the same pack 3 so silence it is.

Pack 2 pick 2:
Coma Veil
Bant Battlemage
Shore Snapper
Lush Growth (FOIL)
Viashino Skeleton
Plains
--> Akrasan Squire
Goblin Mountaineer
Arcane Sanctum
Mighty Emergence
Dreg Reaver
Waveskimmer Aven
Druid of the Anima
Etherium Sculptor

Great 1 drop sticking to plan

Pack 2 pick 3:
Druid of the Anima
Excommunicate
Sigil Blessing
Steelclad Serpent
Soul's Grace
Memory Erosion (FOIL)
Elvish Visionary
Dreg Reaver
--> Waveskimmer Aven
Exuberant Firestoker
Island
Mosstodon
Sacellum Godspeaker

This pack is stronger than the last pack we got a late excommunicate in so we will try again aven is the pick.

Pack 2 pick 4:
Godtoucher
Bloodpyre Elemental
Filigree Sages
Elvish Visionary
Naya Panorama
Gustrider Exuberant
Dragon's Herald
Onyx Goblet
--> Sighted-Caste Sorcerer
Mountain
Resounding Wave
Obelisk of Esper

Is the wave better I honestly think this is the pick with all the exalted I already have.

Pack 2 pick 5:
Tidehollow Strix
Steward of Valeron
Cloudheath Drake
Rockcaster Platoon
Behemoth's Herald
Obelisk of Bant
Lush Growth
Incurable Ogre
--> Kathari Screecher
Plains
Windwright Mage

I believe I already explained why I like screecher more than drake earlier so I will not repeat myself.

Pack 2 pick 6:
Volcanic Submersion
Druid of the Anima
Soul's Might
Relic of Progenitus
Dispeller's Capsule
--> Arcane Sanctum
Angelic Benediction
Thorn-Thrash Viashino
Spell Snip
Swamp

We have no fixing so far and if we stay 2 colour we may not need it but it helps if we do splash.

Pack 2 pick 7:
Etherium Sculptor
--> Jungle Weaver
Marble Chalice
Grixis Panorama
Forest
Deathgreeter
Thorn-Thrash Viashino
Obelisk of Bant
Incurable Ogre

It has cycling if things go really wrong we could play it.

Pack 2 pick 8:
Lush Growth
--> Sighted-Caste Sorcerer
Island
Dregscape Zombie
Clarion Ultimatum
Call to Heel
Kederekt Creeper
Etherium Astrolabe

More exalted great

Pack 2 pick 9:
Mountain
Kederekt Creeper
Deathgreeter
Invincible Hymn
Thoughtcutter Agent
Filigree Sages (FOIL)
--> Hindering Light

Pack 2 pick 10:
--> Coma Veil
Shore Snapper
Viashino Skeleton
Plains
Goblin Mountaineer
Etherium Sculptor

Pack 2 pick 11:
--> Excommunicate
Soul's Grace
Dreg Reaver
Island
Sacellum Godspeaker

Ding! I was right

Pack 2 pick 12:
--> Godtoucher
Gustrider Exuberant
Dragon's Herald
Mountain

Pack 2 pick 13:
--> Behemoth's Herald
Lush Growth
Plains

Pack 2 pick 14:
--> Volcanic Submersion
Swamp

Pack 2 pick 15:
--> Forest

------ ALA ------

Pack 3 pick 1:
Demon's Herald
Rip-Clan Crasher
Forest
Sanctum Gargoyle
Tortoise Formation
Outrider of Jhess
Glaze Fiend
Dragon Fodder
Manaplasm
Gift of the Gargantuan
Qasali Ambusher
Carrion Thrash
--> Oblivion Ring
Jund Panorama
Rhox Charger

Okay there is a semi bomb in mana plasm, a gargoyle which is good with our scourglass but our deck is not really setup to take full advantage of that card, also a charger but the mana plasm is probably a bit stonger if we going to take a green card, but removal is lacking in our colours so this makes my pick oblivion ring all the more valueable.

Pack 3 pick 2:
--> Akrasan Squire
Lightning Talons
Ridge Rannet
Cathartic Adept
Blightning
Dispeller's Capsule
Savage Hunger
Swamp
Courier's Capsule
Jund Charm
Godtoucher
Grixis Battlemage
Vicious Shadows
Jund Battlemage

Great easy pick sad to see so many board wipers passing us by with the way our deck is shaping up but still

Pack 3 pick 3:
Shadowfeed
Gift of the Gargantuan
Glaze Fiend
Esper Panorama
Jhessian Infiltrator
Goblin Deathraiders
Carrion Thrash
Violent Ultimatum
--> Cloudheath Drake
Esper Battlemage
Plains
Coma Veil
Sprouting Thrinax

The infiltrator is a better card but I do not believe so much so that we take it over the drake this time.

Pack 3 pick 4:
Bloodpyre Elemental
Sphinx's Herald
Resounding Scream
Elvish Visionary
--> Knight of the Skyward Eye
Sangrite Surge
Soul's Grace
Rip-Clan Crasher
Mountain
Cunning Lethemancer
Bloodthorn Taunter
Naya Panorama

Hes fine as just a bear to exalt in our deck and even better if we do end up splashing

Pack 3 pick 5:
Bone Splinters
Island
Vectis Silencers
Necrogenesis
Cylian Elf
Skeletal Kathari
--> Rhox War Monk
Guardians of Akrasa
Goblin Mountaineer
Dregscape Zombie
Goblin Deathraiders

This is a stong enough card to splash for with the two other picks we have already, plus the other on colour pick is a wall and although its a great card an aggresive deck can only affod so many walls, before you sitting there thinking if only one of my exalted creatures could attack.

Pack 3 pick 6:
--> Akrasan Squire
Corpse Connoisseur
Jhessian Infiltrator
Crucible of Fire
Forest
Viashino Skeleton
Marble Chalice
Resounding Roar
Etherium Sculptor
Hindering Light

3 Squires is good time

Pack 3 pick 7:
Bloodthorn Taunter
Swamp
Vectis Silencers
Resounding Scream
Banewasp Affliction
Obelisk of Grixis
Hissing Iguanar
Grixis Battlemage
--> Naturalize

Incase we get paired vs esper

Pack 3 pick 8:
Banewasp Affliction
Obelisk of Grixis
Island
Cavern Thoctar
Puppet Conjurer
Resounding Scream
Steelclad Serpent
--> Excommunicate

For some reason the people in this draft really do not like these with my curve, I love them.

Pack 3 pick 9:
Demon's Herald
Forest
Tortoise Formation
Glaze Fiend
Gift of the Gargantuan
--> Qasali Ambusher
Jund Panorama

That is very late.

Pack 3 pick 10:
--> Lightning Talons
Cathartic Adept
Dispeller's Capsule
Savage Hunger
Swamp
Godtoucher

Pack 3 pick 11:
Shadowfeed
Glaze Fiend
--> Esper Panorama
Plains
Coma Veil

Late fixing always helps

Pack 3 pick 12:
--> Sphinx's Herald
Resounding Scream
Soul's Grace
Mountain

Pack 3 pick 13:
Island
Vectis Silencers
--> Guardians of Akrasa

Wow it wheeled

Pack 3 pick 14:
Forest
--> Marble Chalice

Pack 3 pick 15:
--> Swamp

1 hindering light

The games

Round 1 I face a mirror match i get an aggresive aggro curve, he plays battlegrace angel, I excommunicate it attacking in with skyward eye and for some reason he does not block I pump and thats lethal. Game 2 I get turn 2 knight again but have no third land drop, I do draw a squire however and beat down, I draw a 3rd land and get my exalted on, my opponet has green and blue and a single white mana avilable to him but is complaining about screw, in the end he gets over it and says gg.

Round2 5cc control, I playout a horde of little beaters and get in whilst he sets up his mana base when i excommunicate the the first creature he plays he conceeds. Game 2 I set up some early beaters but he has one of the board wipers I passed in the form of infest, i try and recover but he has a sigil and a hellkite overlord, just hope he does not get a board wiper game 3. I get on some early exalted beats again but my opponent clogs up the ground and I am forced into taking to the air with a screecher plus exalted. He draws sigil but I have naturalize in hand but he never attacks me, if i was my opponent I would have played this game alot more aggresively and the outcome may have been diferent. He plays hellkiteoverlord but Ihave been holding an excommunicate in hand for it, he could have equipped sigil to it and attacke for 15 or something im at 23, I have drake plus screecher by this time and excommunicate i have been saving for aerial defense also, so I excommunicate lord and drop him down to 1, He untaps, plays infest and pings drake with an unearth stinger in the graveyard, wipping all my board but war monk and leaving him with a crasher with sigil on and another dude but i naturalize tghe sigil leaving him with only 1 guy and 3 mana up, if he had done this last go instead of playing overlord which he could all do he may well have still won, I excommunicate his remaining blocker unearth screecher and win.

Round 3 Vs Naya my opponnet has turn 1 nactal followed by plains mountain but I have an exalted draw and are keeping up, he gifts into throctar plus land but I have excommunicate for it, another fatty follows but I have silence whilst getting my beat on in the air, thocatr gets replayed but I have bant charm and take the macth with aerial beats. Game 2 He has an eye knight that I am forced into silencing, followed up by the haste 5/5 rw dude and a drum hunter, I try to race in the air but the card advantage is just to much. Turn 1 nactal again, sadly I can not find a turn 1 squire but I do have a 2 drop followed by the araskan wall and some more exalted dudes to get my beat on, I am slighly ahead he lays another nactal and a sanctum gargyle but I am wining the race in the air with aerial exalted beats an oring on the gargoyle settle s the matter.

Feedback appreciated

Was this on m-l or on MODO? I know this isn't the feedback you're wanting but I know the pictures far better, and I'd be more inclined to follow/give input if this was done in a draft converter
