Last time I 2-1ed, let's see if I can come back to 3-0ing.

  Pack 1 pick 1:

Mulldrifter is probably a stronger first pick but I was feeling like drafting ramp so I took Sakura.


  My Pick:


  Pack 1 pick 2:

Just a mana elf for me here so easy pick.


  My Pick:


  Pack 1 pick 3:

Here I start regretting my decision to go ramp. Wrath and thirst would be fine picks for the blue deck but green as 3 cards I don't really want (maybe wall against aggro) but I decided to take the land.


  My Pick:


  Pack 1 pick 4:

Another bad pack for me and again I take the land.


  My Pick:


  Pack 1 pick 5:

  My Pick:


  Pack 1 pick 6:

Boon Satyr is not unplayable but I'd rather have Awakening Zone.


  My Pick:


  Pack 1 pick 7:

Caryatid here makes me think green is actually open and those were simply bad packs for me.


  My Pick:


  Pack 1 pick 8:

I think this was a mistake. Sneak Attack is not very good but once in a while it beats you. I had lost a match recently to it and I was influenced by that. If I wanted to hate, Arc Trail is better against me and I could have taken the painland or even Siren since it seems a good card in ramp.


  My Pick:


  Pack 1 pick 9:

  Pack 1 pick 14:

  Pack 1 pick 15:

  My Pick:


  Pack 2 pick 1:

There's nothing I really want here so I took Progenitus in case I found Natural Order or Eureka.


  My Pick:


  Pack 2 pick 2:

Mana elves are important but there are 2 here so one might wheel and Harmonize is a unique card in green.


  My Pick:


  Pack 2 pick 3:

Dynamo is good but I don't have any monsters so it looks like I'm more midrange. Behemoth could be good but at this point, I think I need good midrange cards more than these 7 or 8 mana creatures.


  My Pick:


  Pack 2 pick 4:

I don't think I can abuse Living Death and since I have a Profane Command I might splash black so I took the land over Elesh Norn.


  My Pick:


  Pack 2 pick 5:

  My Pick:


  Pack 2 pick 6:

Tooth and Nail is good and it would help Progenitus being played but I think I need Wall of Roots more.


  My Pick:


  Pack 2 pick 7:

I think Stunted Growth is underrated. It's really good against any non aggro deck and even against aggro sometimes you still play it fast enough to hurt them. Sometimes I leave it in the sideboard but I like having it access to it.


  My Pick:


  Pack 2 pick 8:

  Pack 2 pick 14:

  My Pick:


  Pack 2 pick 15:

  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 1:

This is a good pack. For me it's clearly Sword because it's the best Sword in cube but also makes my deck function much better putting the mana elves to good use.


  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 2:

I love Cradle but I wanted at least one 6drop and Cradle is more likely to wheel than Titan.


  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 3:

Basalt is great but I don't have much need for this kind of ramp. Wolfir makes any elf a huge guy and fits better in my deck.


  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 4:

Genesis Wave would be good with Basalt but the elf fits better anyway.


  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 5:

Mind Stone is fine but I like what Duplicant does for me.


  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 6:

Here's another mana elf human but I think it's time to take a 7drop and Garruk seems sweet. It's too bad Bayou is in this pack as well.


  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 7:

  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 8:

  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 9:

  My Pick:


  Pack 3 pick 10:

Even though I wanted it to wheel I didn't have much hope so I was very happy.

Here's the deck:

It's not perfect but at some points it looked like it was gonna be a disaster so I'm happy with it.

M1G1:

 

Sword of Body and Mind easily won me the game against a UG deck. I took my time and when he was tapped out I played it.

M1G2:

 

This was not an easy game. I probably made some mistakes but it's hard to pinpoint exactly. I had to be careful not to let him abuse Mimic Vat so I took my time. Garruk did not resolve and he had the Witness+Cryptic "lock". The one good thing about this game was that he played slower than me and he even took at least 1 extra turn to kill me. He ended the game with just over 2 minutes.

M1G3:

 

He was certainly winning the game from there but time did cost him. That may seem unfair because he might have lagged or maybe he's just not used to the interface but my opponents are not gonna give me the win if it happens the other way around. It's a feature of MTGO and you have to play with it. I actually think this way is way better than drawing or even losing against someone who plays very slow.

M2G1:

 

I was lucky to draw lands after he Mana Tithes my Sakura. He was missing land drops and Stunted Growth made sure he would miss again for at least 3 turns so he simply conceded.

M2G2:

 

This game he shows that he's esper and not monowhite. This was one of those games that you get destroyed by a card that usually just has stats but sometimes their ability is insane. Linvala didn't allow me to play Duplicant or Garruk which would have won me the game if they resolved. His Anthems also made sure I didn't have at least 1 extra turn.

M2G3:

 

I went to 6 cards and my hand wasn't great. However, he made a huge mistake that cost him the game. If he had played Heliod before attacking I wouldn't have been able to get a hit with Sword, which allowed me to reanimate Emeria Angel. Instead I would have reanimated his Leonin which could take out Honor or Heliod but I wouldn't have a flier to get past his creatures and would probably lose to Baron.

M3G1:

 

M3G2:

 

Sadly both of these are bugged. In both of these it looks like my opponent has mana floating so maybe the replays have problems with mana floating? The first game I won soon after with Profane Command giving fear to my creatures and dealing X to him, when he was tapped out. The second game I think I probably should only have attacked with Wolfir because he can chump Tusk and Wolfir and trade with the elf which allows him to steal Wolfir with Legacy's Allure. Instead I think he traded Tusks and chumped the rest. I ended up winning after finding Garruk with Jar.

So I ended up 3-0ing but the first 2 rounds I would have lost if it wasn't for the time and a simple but fatal mistake. Despite both replays from round3 being bugged, I think it was interesting to see how I 3-0ed and at the same time, could have lost those rounds to simple things.

I hope you enjoyed this and there are still several to come.
