Forced Fruition Episode 9: Black Sheep Wall


Food for Thought

If I were to describe this draft with one phrase: Staying Alive. Right from the get go, our strategy started to form, mostly due to a couple sheepish picks that wound up dictating the rest of our draft. Adding in the Journey pack to this format helps even out the different draft strategies that are available by toning down white-based aggro (read: fewer Ordeals and [card]Wingsteed Rider[/card]s) and giving some of the weaker colors more to work with. I’m pretty happy with where its at and am excited to bring you guys some great JBT drafts. So breathe deep and join me for some games of Magic: The Gathering.
