return to innistrad

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.

Gavony Township
Pilgrim of Avacyn x2
Silverchase Fox x2
Darkthicket Wolf
Avacynian Priest
Mentor of the Meek
Village Bellringer
Fiend Hunter
Abbey Griffin x2
Slayer of the Wicked x2
Mausoleum Guard
Ulvenwald Mystics
Galvanic Juggernaut
Grizzled OutcastsSilver-Inlaid Dagger
Bonds of Faith
Travel Preparations
Spidery Grasp
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!
