ChannelFireball's limited breakdowns (written by LSV) have also been useful to me to help gauge the individual usefulness of each individual card (best to start backwards since it links the previous article at the top): https://www.channelfireball.com/article ... and-lands/

Also they have a few pack picks articles where their guys have gone through some of their packs if you check the articles page.

Finally went over 50% winrate! I only went 4-3 though...

I managed to draft polyraptor, regisaur alpha and 2 heralds. I did the polyraptor combo twice for the win. That was fun!
Still, draft games seem to have a huge amount of variance variance, even when you make a pretty decent deck, sometimes your opponent gets a nut draw or you get screwed/flooded and just have no chance.

I did it, I went 7-2 in draft!

I built a kick-ass really cool dimir control deck that totally rocked!
I actually got a scarab-god as my first pick, but he only showed his ugly mug in the last 2 games (and he got countered one of those games).

Mvps for me were Banewhip Punisher and interestingly enough, moaning wall, Grim Strider also did some good work.

Totally owned the last game with his broken-ass though (after getting very mana-screwed and staring down at a board full of nasty critters).
Now I can draft again, but because I ran out of gems...lol

Draft rocks, I pick up all sorts of great cards in all my drafts (I'll go for the rare if the rest is all crap...). Got a scavenger grounds and a bunch of other stuff this time too.

I also won a game by decking my opponent I had no business winning. He had 12 cards left in his deck, would have lethal next turn and he drops a Champion of wits and attacks, I kill his other Champion of wits (yes, he had 2) To see if he took the bait, because I had an unsuspecting Seer of the Last Tomorrow In play and 2 lands in hand, ready for action.
He eternalized the Champion and I "good game" him (he must have thought it was because I was dead next turn), but I mulled 3 on his eot and another 3 on my turn... What a game! (This was the guy who countered my Scarab god when it finally showed up for the first time in 8 games, even after going down to 12 cards in one of those games and loosing).
