I was able to head to the Redcaps Redraft tonight (after my boss randomly let me leave earlier).
I played Jund again. It’s becoming my crutch in draft so I’ll have to try something different next time.
My 1st pick in each pack was:
and Frontier Mastiodon, though I guess I lost it, because it wasn’t in my pool later… I don’t know.
I scrubbed out again (I blame being out of practice). The deck was ok, but I made a lot of mistakes.
Round 1: Vs Sultai Manifest
Game 1 I got blown out by Ethereal Ambush. However, Games 2 and 3 he opened like no lands and I trampled him with Elk.
Round 2: Vs Jeskai Aggro
This game the card that caused me problems was War Flare which caused me to lose game 2. I then lost game 3.
I will someday beat my roommate in limited… Someday…
Round 3: RB Dash
I am so upset over a glorious mistake game 1 where I mistook Sheltered Aerie for my 3rd land. I then lost very fast. However, I got the luckiest topdeck in game 2 where I pulled Temur Battle Rage to let the Elk Herd Trample over Sidisi, Undead Vizier for game when he had me dead on the next turn. Game 3 he beat me, but it was a good last 2 games.
MVPs of the night was Tread Upon and Temur Battle Rage both of which won me a game or two. I’m still salty over my mistakes, but the rare pool wiped out my salt. The best rare was Soulfire Grandmaster, then Dromoka Command and then… Nothing over $2.
It was fun, I prefer rare redraft, though my life goal is to go 2-1 again like the draft back in Theros block where I drafted 2 Revel of the Fallen God.
Anyhow, thanks for reading as always.
