This was a pretty good draft. I got the right bombs i needed to make my deck insane. It had alot of synergy.


Event #: 284006

Players:
Bird of Paradise
Damoclez
Chapste
Beakid

chn_bf
--> pgamrob

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

Pack 1 pick 1:
Viashino Skeleton
--> Scourglass (FOIL)
Excommunicate
Viscera Dragger
Naya Panorama
Onyx Goblet
Obelisk of Esper
Godtoucher
Gustrider Exuberant
Resounding Wave
Bant Charm
Filigree Sages
Sunseed Nurturer
Mayael the Anima
Mountain

Nice Bomb! Only other card thats worth considering is bant charm, but scourglass is so much better.

Pack 1 pick 2:
--> Courier's Capsule
Akrasan Squire
Bone Splinters
Obelisk of Grixis (FOIL)
Bloodthorn Taunter
Naturalize
Angelsong
Blister Beetle
Obelisk of Jund
Cathartic Adept
Jungle Shrine
Tidehollow Sculler
Exuberant Firestoker
Plains

I think this is better then the other options

Pack 1 pick 3:
Soul's Fire
Jhessian Lookout
Welkin Guide
Dreg Reaver
Cylian Elf
Esper Panorama
--> Executioner's Capsule
Carrion Thrash
Filigree Sages
Naya Charm
Corpse Connoisseur
Knight-Captain of Eos
Swamp

With what we all already have, im gonna try and go esper. So ill take the ex capsule, even tho the naya charm is better. I wouldnt fault anyone for taking the rare either.

Pack 1 pick 4:
Banewasp Affliction
--> Deft Duelist
Court Archers
Knight of the Skyward Eye
Cavern Thoctar
Cancel
Obelisk of Jund
Volcanic Submersion
Rakeclaw Gargantuan
Sangrite Surge
Cradle of Vitality
Plains

Weak pack, only card that fits into what we want to draft (esper), and the other cards in this pack dont warrant switching. I considering taking cancel here, as it is very strong if my deck turns out controlish.

Pack 1 pick 5:
Deft Duelist
Savage Hunger
Blightning
Naturalize
Obelisk of Grixis
Resounding Scream
Bloodthorn Taunter
Behemoth's Herald
--> Corpse Connoisseur

Mountain

Very good card, better then the second deft duelist. Its not worth hating the naturlize this early.

Pack 1 pick 6:
Dregscape Zombie
Cylian Elf
Vectis Silencers
Welkin Guide
Soul's Grace
Skeletal Kathari
Goblin Deathraiders
Scourge Devil
--> Death Baron

I think this card is pretty good if you get the right cards. And since i already have a Connoisseur i think its worth taking over the kathari.

Pack 1 pick 7:
Skeletal Kathari
Goblin Deathraiders
Grixis Panorama
Glaze Fiend
Plains (FOIL)
--> Fire-Field Ogre
Esper Charm

Mountain

Very late, and very good!

Pack 1 pick 9:
Viashino Skeleton
--> Onyx Goblet
Godtoucher
Gustrider Exuberant
Filigree Sages
Sunseed Nurturer
Mountain

Only card we can really use...it becomes better if we pick up Esperzoas in conflux.

Pack 1 pick 10:
--> Obelisk of Grixis (FOIL)
Bloodthorn Taunter
Angelsong
Cathartic Adept
Exuberant Firestoker
Plains

I like picking these up late.

Jund Charm (FOIL)
Obelisk of Grixis
Resounding Scream
Bloodthorn Taunter

The was pretty straight forward. I didnt splash the red, as i wanted to make sure i could cast the scourglass and coup.
All 3 rounds pretty much came down to me playing scourglass or martial coup and using gargoyle to get back scourglass. i went 6-0 in games, and none were very close at all.


Round 1 vs Bant

I played out some early artifact fliers, get a fast enough clock. He plays out his whole hand to try and keep up. I had the scourglass to kill his team. Game 2 i played out a darklit and a tower gargoyle and beat my opponent down to 8. He played out his whole hand by then, so i was able to play martial coup for 9 and win the next turn.

Round 2 vs 5 color w/ jund base.

My exe capsules were pretty bad. But since i had played one, all my opponent did was play black creatures. They all died to scourglass. He was able to recover, but sanctum gargoyle targetting the scourglass got a concession. Game two i play turn 2 a sphere, turn 4 courier capsule. Turn 5 i play scourglass and use it next upkpeep. I play kiss of amesha on turn 6, and after he plays out his hand on the following turn i untap and play my martial coup for 7 and get the concession. I won this game without ever playing a creature card Smile.

Round 3 vs Jund.

Once again, my exe capsule is horrible. He starts out strong game 1, but im able to stop the bleeding with agony warps long enough to cast the coup in my hand. Game 2 is pretty much the same, i stall out until i get coup, which he had no answer for again.

Okay as promised, I did not differ on too much and overall thought you did a good job.

Pack 1 pick 7 You've seen no good red the person next to you is certainly red maybe the guy after him as well, I do not see why you would want to take this when you have an almost equally powerfull on shard card in esper charm. Also general comment on the people at your draft table, apprently no one has told them card draw is good how much did they pass you!

pack 2 pick 2 I agree with the gargoyle as your deck is very controllish looking even more so if you had the esper charm, if i was aggresive aerial beats esper I would take the master.

pack 2 pick 8 agree on fixing

pack 3 pick 2 Ding! 2 wogs easy street


Overall good draft

I was leaving the option of grixis open. And he is completely splashable into esper. And i drafted a corpse, which is really good.

I dont even know if i wouldve played the esper charm had i taken it anyways (2x capsule and 1x kiss mightve been enough).

It was definatly between those two cards, i just think the fire field is really good.
