I’ve been telling people for years that I am a Bad Magic Player, especially when it comes to booster drafting. How bad am I? Well I finally recorded a booster draft and uploaded it to YouTube for everyone to see. You can watch me make horrible card selections while listening to my ramblings about what cards are good (and they probably aren’t) and thought processes during a recent 8-4 draft of M13 on MTGO.
I lost my first match against a white-green fatty deck that had some crazy board states like the one below. I crushed him/her game 1 by chain-slamming wurms, lost game 2 after drawing 7 lands in a row, and was setting up a fatal alpha strike in game 3 when s/he played Bountiful Harvest to go from 5 life to 15 and avoid death long enough to stabilize and come back with a vengeance.
