home Cube, Draft replay, Magic, November 2015 Draft-by-draft: Jonah

Draft-by-draft: Jonah

Pack 1 pick 1:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • I think Karns power level is similar but keeps you more open.  Jace, while very splash able looks for a deck with lots of instants and sorceries.
  • Taking Jace, your next player will possibly see Green as open.

Pack 1 pick 2:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • While I am sad to think there might have been anything better then the robot, I am being influenced to think Bribery might have been better, especially with Jace to flash it back.

Pack 1 pick 3:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • Aside from a mild temptation for Mana Leak, I think you divined the right pick.

Pack 1 pick 4:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • Capsize would have been my choice, but I’ve witnessed the power of this choice.

Pack 1 pick 5:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • I’m a little curious on this pick.  Seems to jump colors and themes.

Pack 1 pick 6:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • The steady stream of blue from your left indicates it is open. How was the confluence?

Pack 1 pick 7:


Jonah’s Pick:

Pack 1 pick 8:


Jonah’s Pick:

Pack 1 pick 9:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • So far Bant splashing red for Dack?

Pack 1 pick 10:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • The blue has dried up thanks to Justin. And Chris H.

Pack 2 pick 1:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • I’m just not a huge fan of Goyf in drafting. I would have gone Mulldrifter or possibly Test Subject myself.

Pack 2 pick 2:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • Clique or Fact or Fiction… I think this was right choice.

Pack 2 pick 3:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • A boar-ing but solid pick.  I think Sylvan Library is stronger, but I’m biased for the words “draw a card”

Pack 2 pick 4:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • How was she?  She seems solid but hard to gauge for sure.

Pack 2 pick 5:


Jonah’s Pick:

Pack 2 pick 6:


Jonah’s Pick:

Pack 2 pick 7:


Jonah’s Pick:

Pack 2 pick 8:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • Really a dry pack for you.  This will held splash for Dack if you do.

Pack 2 pick 9:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • I’m guessing that you noticed red is wide open.

Pack 3 pick 1:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • Unless you’re playing burn, still one of best cards in magic.  Heck, I’d still take it in burn and hope for it in my opening hand

Pack 3 pick 2:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • Here I would have gone for cyclonic rift.

Pack 3 pick 3:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • Really can’t argue with this.

Pack 3 pick 4:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • This was an astoundingly stacked pack. There’s about 5-6 cards that would be worth taking, but you made a strong choice. Why take one creature when you can take one that mind controls and have both.

Pack 3 pick 5:


Jonah’s Pick:

  • I’m guessing you’ve given up on white and going firmly for Temur.
