Eh... I disagree with some of your early picks (like im not a big fan of Sigiled Paladin) but some of your Conflux picks seem really wrong...

Here are a couple examples ...

P3P1: I woulda gone with the Gleam...

I would have picked Akrasan Squire over Paladin anyday, and also, I think you should have taken the ultimatum

I actually have time to do a draft walkthrough....

say what your thinking/logic is for taking o-ring over naya charm, it's a fine pick, but it makes it a lot easier for me to comment on the rest of your draft (obvious things like: 3 colours vs 1 will NOT suffice)

Deft Deulist, Bone Splinters and Esper Charm are all picks I would make over panorama. you rarely want to splash green or blue as they are both so light on removal, so unless you intend to go bant (worst shard probably, even worse with reckless charge and persistant kathari in pack 3), the panorama isn't particularly useful

it's also better than the aven, and you look like an agressive deck

judgement call, wouldn't criticize either of the two

this was very lucky, and a very strong signal

in your agressive base gw deck, too many splashes is a bad thing, in a draft that mattered (say a ptq t8, I'd be very tempted by ambusher). that said, it's money, and the clear pick here

it costs 7, and you know you are splashing red already in a very aggressive GWx(x) deck, I would def. take ultimatum here. Jungle Weaver is a fine, if unexciting pick. This pick also helps me understand your p1p1 logic.

this is basically a bomb in your deck

yeah, lets not dwell on this pick (obelisk is the right one)

I would take spire without a second though, you're a 4 colour deck (sometimes fixing one colour just isn't going to get it done). I guess gleam does get your mountain for the two nactls though

2 nacatl and 2 sigiled paladin suggest gw base, making visions a much worse fixer, take the might of alara or trailblazer

exactly what the heavy 2 drop deck demands

you really want the might of alara, but I guess I can sort of understand this pick

that's awfully late....

I'm a very big fan of cards like skyward eye prophets in aggressive decks to give you a good late game oomph

ummm, what? that should NEVER happen

3/3 flyer for 5 isn't efficient? and shroud is very relevant in a format full of removal. this pick is wrong

arguably best green common, should never go 9th

you're more likely to play wandering goblins

lol shard convergence is horrible. It does nothing really unless youre stuck on 4 lands and have nothing but huge drops in your hand.

This is great example of where manaforce mace is at its best.

p3p8 shouldve been mystics. Its ability has defiantly won me a few games.

I take the Titanic Ultimatum, go GWr and don't look back.
