In preparation for the Dark Ascension prerelease next weekend, I decided to do a draft at I’m Board today. The drafts there are $10 for packs, keep your picks, no prizes. It’s a pretty casual crowd, newer players, players who don’t know rules, etc. To them, I’m probably more or less a pro ;) Here’s the deck I drafted, first picking Mentor of the Meek.
Silverchase Fox x2
Mentor of the Meek
Abbey Griffin x2
Slayer of the Wicked x2
Grizzled OutcastsSilver-Inlaid Dagger
Bonds of Faith
Smite the Monstrous
As you might expect, the deck smashed faces. After the draft, I was able to unload tons of dollar/junk rares (and a few substantial ones) to trade for some higher value cards. Since my trade binder is larger than it needs to be, I encouraged them to take out everything they wanted and was able to walk away with a Snapcaster, Sad Robot, Phantasmal Image, Past in Flames, Woodland Cemetary, and a few other random low-value cards in exchange for a Primeval Titan, Inferno Titan, a couple 4-5 dollar cards, a bunch of 3-4 dollar cards, and about 20+ junk rares and random uncommons. I double-checked with them all, and they were uninterested in competitive Magic, so I hope they enjoyed greatly boosting their collections for a few casually-unimpressive cards!
