Flashback drafts were back, and this time around we got to take the original Mirrodin block for a spin. It all begins with triple Mirrodin, which is a format I played a bit back in the day (but likely played very badly, as back then the bulk of my tournament play was Constructed).

Mirrodin is a set I have a lot of fond memories of, including the first time I made the trip to Brazilian Nationals back in 2004. This was thanks to a white-green Standard deck that had a lot of game against both Affinity and Goblin Bidding, courtesy of cards like Oxidize, Molder Slug, Akroma's Vengeance, Troll Ascetic and one of my favorite cards of all time, Worship.

When it came to draft, the format (at least in its triple Mirrodin incarnation) was dominated by a little common called Spikeshot Goblin, which was better than something like 99% of the rares in the set. Crazy days indeed.

Today, I bring you a triple Mirrodin draft in which I was fortunate enough to not only open good old 'Shot, but to draw him multiple times (and as a result dominate games in ways a common never should). Let's get to it!

That's all I got for you today. I hope you enjoyed it, and see you soon.
