p1p2 though your pick is fine the bloodcultist is the best card in the pack and you can make a good case for taking that, with a battlemage already pingers get better in multiples.

p1p3 excommunicate is to weak to take 3rd pick scavenger drake is an option but it does not shine in esper, I would still take it though as it is playable and the next best option the igunar moves you more likely into grixis in which case i prefer the drake, even though I actually like igunar more in grixis, as drkae is playable in both esper and grixis.

p1p4 vithian stinger is alot better than bloodpyre elemental, however i think your right to move into red over taking the windwright mage just did not take the best red card

p1p6 good pick your now open to esper, grixis and 4 colour, whatever happens the way your drafting your going to avoid trainwrecks

p2p1 do not blame you though slavedriver is still hard to pass up

p2p5 I like the wandering goblin as you now have 2 spheres and can easily go 4 colour

p3p1 yep thats the good thing about taking spheres even if you have no other mana fixing yet but you can pick up anything late as your all 5 colours now

p3p5 I like the talon trooper more

p3p8 I actually like the pale recluse as your artifact count is quite low and it helps splash the sledge plus it is a good beater in itself.

overall i think you did a pretty solid draft

P1P2
Pick Screecher. Capsule is overrated.Also consider Cultist. However, cultist throws you into grixis, and grixis is pretty bad.

P1P3
Pick Scavenger Drake. Itís a solid card and in your colors. This also lets you go Grixis or Esper.

P1P4
Pick Vithian Stinger. Itís one of the best red cards in the block. Bloodpyre is slow and is almost always 4R 4 damage, which isnít bad, but not close to stinger.

These picks would have changed your entire deck and the rest of your draft. Also, why only play 1 kathari?

yeh i really wanted the slavedriver cuz hes crazy good but like 4 tix haha i unno...

im not a huge fan of drake... like to be honest ive never played him but 4 mana for a 1/1 seems rough.

im thinking the stinger was better cuz it is a really good card but liek my thought process was that the elemental would make a better splash for a removal spell in esper.

im not a huge fan of kathari and wasnt sure if i really wanted to play 2.

thanx for the input
