I think you haven't paid enough attention to the signals you've passed.

One of the guys to your left has just gotten a 2nd/3rd pick Tower Gargoyle and will also be trying to force Esper, admittedly you didn't give him much out of pack 1 but forcing Esper is a popular tactic nowadays. Especially since most of the Esper cards are pack 2. So pack 2 is going to be a lot weaker than normal for you (which it was). This means I'd personally be looking to go more Bant splash black or 5c than force Esper, which makes Armillary Sphere an easy pick.

I think your biggest problem this draft was the guy on your right is retarded. He passed you a Tower Gargoyle, saw zero Esper in pack 2 (2 players on his left cutting it off to him), and then it looks like he's in Esper anyway come pack 3. 6th pick Bituminous Blast means poor signalling from him earlier.

At least you got rares worth more than the whole draft. Incidentally, how did you do in the games?

I'm still pretty new to drafting, do you change the direction you pass cards each new pack? That makes much more sense on while signaling is important first pack.

I didn't do too great, 1-2. First round I couldn't get the mana I needed, second round my opponents deck was garbage, and third round my opponents deck was ridiculous. volcanic fallout, terminate, bituminous blast. He had so much removal that he used a sangrite backlash on his own creature.
