Draft Tuesday #2!
So the obvious card that everyone is gonna look at is Mikaeus. But I would lean more towards Markov Warlord seeing as it is godly in sealed. Mikaeus seems to be something that helps achieve a winning condition while Markov Warlord is a Winning condition itself. Both coming in at a 6 mana cost they both fit into the "Bombs" part of a sealed deck. Now Mikaeus does have some relevance in constructed (although he doesn't see a whole ton of play) He seems to be just a bit too large of a play for his impact, although his impact is relevant and strong, he is probably a secondary choice to Markov. Now lets say you get this pack and Markov is gone and Mikaeus would be a legitimate addition to you deck-in-progress, he is a very strong candidate.
So looking at the rest of the pack there are some pretty good fillers here. Midnight guard is a good filler for only 3 mana. Kessig recluse is a good option considering its deathtouch and reach although reach is not very useful in a DK/INN/INN draft. Another solid choice is the Gravetiller wurm which with it's morbid ability, your opponent could be staring down a 8/8 with trample, which is never fun.
So that's more or less that's the pack. So I'm thinking next week we should do an actual draft on Cockatrice. I'll get Ryan and Drew to get in and then whoever else wants to join. 8pm Central sound good? Next Tuesday just check the blog, and along with the normal draft Tuesday I'll post more info. Comment on here if you would be interested in the draft so we know how many spots to open. My Cockatrice name is Orflarg.
Hope you all had an awesome weekend. See you all soon!
