While waiting for Battle for Zendikar to release on MTGO so I can binge on sealed events, I decided to play a throw-back Khans of Tarkir/Fate Reforged draft – Magic Online has a 6-2-2-2 swiss queue (so you get to play all three rounds regardless of how bad your deck is) that costs about nine event tickets total (seven tix for the packs from a vendor bot plus two tix entry fee). It’s cheap and it’s fun, so what the heck.
Apparently a pile of badness gets there once in a while. I went 2-0 and split the third round to get four packs (two of each set) instead of playing for the 6/2 posted prize distribution.
Sometimes you never know what will win games. Highlight of the event: I won a game by casting Deflecting Palm on a 7/7.
