Well, since last week, I have had some pretty disappointing draft results on MTGO. This also marks the last of my drafting online for a long time. I simply don’t have the money for it :P I also don’t really need the cards so much anymore. I have built up a nice big collection and now I have pretty much everything that I would need to work with for deck-building.
In my first draft, I went 2-1 in the total match round-up. I did pretty well. I didn’t even pull anything extraordinary. A few semi-decent rare cards coupled with a half-decent grip of commons was enough to do pretty much all I needed to do. The wins were enough to get me a couple more packs towards the next draft.
In draft number 2, I didn’t end up doing very well… 0-3. It was a massively lame draft… except for all the awesome pulls!!! WOW they were awesome pulls. I picked up my first planeswalker!! YAY!! Elspeth Tirel, this beauty below, got passed to me. Couldn’t believe that. I also picked up a particulary nasty little Engine of Destruction and a nasty little Ooze.
But, apart from all the bombs, the deck was all over the place. I barely pulled any white at all so I ended up splashing to drop Elspeth… disappointing.
Today, after getting back from the inlaws, I decided to play one more draft for good measure. This one didn’t go so great. I tried. I really tried. I didn’t pull much of anything. It was all pretty lousy. I didn’t pick up any great bombs, no great uncommons, and even less good common cards. It was all a bit “meh” so that one went 1-2. I finally pulled out a win in the last round, but the early stuff is just impossible for me – another reason why I still don’t play in 4-3-2-2; Those guys are in a league of their own.
Must. Train. Harder.
