Draft recording done by Blargware's MTGO DraftCap. Support Blargware!

The first pick is missing: it was a Pack's Disdain over Sunflare Shaman and some blue card I can't remember offhand. Nevermaker is a strong card, but doesn't fit a tribal theme well so it seems weak for a small-set draft. The blue signal was clearly coming from the right, but I didn't see any form of U/B I could really move into at that point, and I have a preference for Kithkins.

I punted one game in the first round but won the first two rounds without trouble. I lost one game in the finals when my opponent had on the play turn-1 Prickly Boggart, turn-2 Stinkdrinker Bandit, turn-3 Pack's Disdain + Mothdust Changeling, and I came close to recovering but couldn't quite get there. I took the next two when either he had weak hands or I had ridiculous ones. I underestimated the Ballyrush Bannerets. I took Bombardiers over them three times (looks like those two are in a print run), and I'm not positive that was correct. Especially with 2 Final-Sting Faeries already that could help against larger creatures, reliably dumping my hand Affinity-style on turns 3 and 4 probably would have been a better choice.

Won the draft.

Bannerets are good, but I'd take Bombardiers over them just about every time. Maybe in MMM the valuations are a bit different, though.

5 Zephyrnauts must've been nice, :-).

In Pack 32 did you consider the Meadowboon over the Barrage?

Luis
Yeah, I still can't imagine taking Banneret over Bombardier in LLM except in a really unusual situation.

I did consider the Meadowboon, and I didn't even notice the Violet Pall until looking back now. Barrage is cheap and going to make my deck for sure, while I already had enough cards that cost 4+, so it was probably the best of those three. Banneret could also have been correct though.
Drafting MMM is just this side of ridiculous. I have almost 4 playsets of Morningtide now. I've won my draft every time I'm either Kithkin or Rogue (usually rogue), and have only lost the ones where I try to see if wizards or warriors are good. They are not.
