Dreg Reaver
Sigil Blessing
Druid of the Anima
Goblin Mountaineer
--> Sanctum Gargoyle
Goblin Deathraiders
Coma Veil
Filigree Sages
Sigiled Paladin
Necrogenesis
Predator Dragon
Forest

Figured it was Gargoyle, Druid of the Anima or Sigiled Paladin. Gargyole is the strongest and takes ALL the Esper cards out giving a good chance pack 2. (1 Esper card lol)

Pack 1 pick 2:
Guardians of Akrasa
--> Agony Warp
Goblin Mountaineer
Shore Snapper
Wild Nacatl
Executioner's Capsule
Jhessian Lookout (FOIL)
Carrion Thrash
Jund Panorama
Qasali Ambusher
Savage Lands
Grixis Battlemage

Was a toss up between Warp and Ex Capsule, took the warp because I want the 2 for 1 effects.

Pack 1 pick 3:

Dreg Reaver
Cylian Elf
Knight of the Skyward Eye
Resounding Scream
Naya Panorama
Cancel

Was forcing Esper so I took the Puppet, Dregscape was another option.

Lush Growth
Skeletal Kathari
--> Esper Panorama
Hindering Light
Grixis Panorama
Glaze Fiend
Vithian Stinger
Puppet Conjurer

I don't want Conjurer 2. Screecher was a valid pick and I notice a Stinger is still there.

Marble Chalice
Deathgreeter
Sigil Blessing

I took the Sen Triplets because it's a bomb. Wall and Hulk where other options.

Pack 3 pick 2:
Sewn-Eye Drake
Brainbite
Trace of Abundance
Grizzled Leotau
Valley Rannet
Bant Sojourners
Mask of Riddles
Double Negative
Lightning Reaver
Mountain
--> Esper Stormblade
Deny Reality
Rhox Brute

I'll take the cheap evasion dude. Sewn-eye was another option but I'm heavy esper and I'll wheel it.

Naya Sojourners
Singe-Mind Ogre
Putrid Leech (FOIL)

Ok, this was a hate pick from me. I was thinking damn, theres 2 leeches, a might and a recluse which all hurt me. I took the combat trick because theres 2 leeches and a leech I will see and know how to deal with vs the random might that will "suprise" me.

Pack 3 pick 5:
Monstrous Carabid
Stormcaller's Boon

Grizzled Leotau

--> Ethersworn Shieldmage
Winged Coatl (FOIL)
Singe-Mind Ogre
Kathari Bomber
Vedalken Ghoul
Naya Hushblade
Vectis Dominator

Another 1. Noted is Ardent plea.

Pack 3 pick 8:
Jhessian Zombies
Architects of Will
Esper Sojourners
--> Ethercaste Knight
Godtracker of Jund
Breath of Malfegor
Morbid Bloom
Plains

Was thinking about the Sojourners, but then the flying + exalted is just too good to pass up, especially with Esperblade. Didn't need the fixing at this point.

Pack 3 pick 9:
Leonin Armorguard
Cerodon Yearling
--> Sanctum Plowbeast
Bant Sojourners
Sigiled Behemoth
Etherium Abomination
Forest

I'll take this fixing but Smile.

Little bit of humor value for me since chidorie actually plays on ML and was talking to me on AIM as this draft took place. He was wondering why people were passing the Glory.

Draft content wise. Necrogenesis is a reasonable pick over sanctum though I think I would take sanctum.

Ecapsule v warp is much closer when u have a gargoyle.

Your deck is an example of why I hate forcing esper in this format. Its fine but not super exciting. Your relying on syngergy of cards with little removal and no bombs.

Predator dragon is def a valid pick as well its colour intensive but it is still a bomb, often 1 smash is enough, I think i would take that or the gargoyle.

Only other thing I did not like was the armillary sphere over the grixis slavedriver, it turned out to be a good decision as you do not see alot of fixing. But slaver driver is normally good enough that if I have a reasonable amount of time to pick up fixing whihc you did I take the driver.

Also the 2nd top deck was irrelvant he had enough creature power on board anyway.
