Drafts and Trades
I have done a couple of drafts thusfar. Neither went very well, but I did manage to draft a Smothering Abomination and a From Beyond, which went into the deck. I took out Tasigur, the Golden Fang and Warden of the First Tree, because I wanted to put them into a trade binder. I also drafted a Shambling Vent, which is of course pretty good currency.
I did play something other than this deck during two FNMs already. The thing is, its very hard to trade for commons. I had to ask around and hope someone would remember to bring something I was interested in. Gladly, one of the regulars did remember and I was able to trade for a pair of Nantuko Husks and Zulaport Cutthroats. Furthermore, I got – in exchange for the aforementioned Vent – a pair of Corpseweft, a Merciless Executioner, three Grim Haruspexes (or whatever the plural of that is), a Bloodsoaked Champion and an Evolutionary Leap.
I’m thinking currently, that with these additions, the list should look something like this:
Sadly, I didn’t get all the cards quite yet, so I can’t play this tomorrow at Game Day. Neither can I play it next FNM, because I’m judging a Modern Tournament. Still, I haven’t given up on this quite yet.
