 This is the second of three early Innistrad draft articles.  The drafts are going okay, but there is definite room for improvement.  In this one I get a very interesting first pick that leads my into an archetype that I can only describe as, "Old Faithful."

The Draft

I thought that draft went fairly well, with the exception of when I missed a Bonds of Faith for pretty much nothing.  I think that UW fliers will work just fine in Innistrad, and I can't wait to see how all of the Claustrophobias work out for me.

Round 1

Round 2, Part 1

Round 2, Part 2

That was an epic game.  If Opponent had any kind of removal for Mindshrieker, I was of course, done for.

Round 2, Part 3

Round 3

I learned that fliers are still a valid path to victory in this set.  I also learned that Intangible Virtue is not Honor the Pure and I will never confuse it for such again!  I learned that Mindshrieker is a very good card.  If you are on the offensive it can seal the deal, but I think its best function is to play defense.  It wins games all by itself.  I found out that I like Doomed Traveler better than I thought I would.  And finally, I have to find a way to remember all of the flashback cards.  


Without commentary... by scrappykid at Wed, 11/16/2011 - 20:24

Without commentary, I find it very difficult to watch these videos.

I think it's because i get bored and tend to switch to another tab, but that isn't really an option in your videos, since all the commentary is text. I think if you were able to provide verbal commentary, these would be much more compelling offerings.

I do appreciate your remarks in the body of the text, but that's all I've been able to bring myself to do to engage with your articles.
