    yeah, I was trying for green, but DF or Zigathon took a bunch of good ones before they dropped out :mad:

  2. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Zigathon drafted mono-black and DF didn't drop out. I think you're thinking of Homestar.

    It was 40 cards last time and that let Oversoul get a pretty kick ass combo deck. I also vote that Shadowmoor be included as it'll be out soon enough. Actually picking 4th, I got what I would have picked first and that let me pick the deck I planned to have from the beginning. Just one match loss to Oversoul and I was a turn away each time from completely locking his deck down. I also believe that all your undrafted cards were sideboard. Ransac, did we ever play in the first draft? I don't think so and I would like to have a go at it.

    I would recommend eliminating the restricted cards in Vintage...

    I don't understand what you mean? In a way, all cards are already restricted..
  6. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Which are?
    Since this is highlander, what are the banned cards? Just the ones mentioned?
  7. BigBlue Magic Jones

    I think due to the "draft" nature of this with only 1 card available, there's no real need to ban cards other than those already mentioned - Ante Cards, Chaos Orb, and Falling Star.

    With 8 players, no one will end up with a "super P9" abused deck...

    The whole purpose of restricting cards is to keep them from breaking a game, in highlander when only 1 of (insert cardname here) available - they aren't going to be completely abused. And everyone has a pretty fair shot at a lot of cards - you are at most blocked from 7 cards... after that - you have a shot at any one of them. And if you pick 8th - you actually have a great advantage as you can pick combos without having any interference since you get 2 picks in a row.

    As far as the "sideboard" - did you mean that every unselected card is part of a collective sideboard - which your only limitation is 1 per deck? I figured the sideboard would come from your unused cards...
  8. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Works for me.
  9. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yeah, it was Homestar.

    All cards are available except the ante and flipping cards, that's the whole point of this.

    Sideboard is any drafted but unused cards.
  10. Budget Player Cadet Where in the world is BPC

    Okay, got it. And this goes on until? 40 cards was said? I say we just make it 45 for draft's sake (always two boosters).
  11. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    We draft 45 cards and make any size card we want to out of them.

    Wouldn't you be pretty much stuck with the 3" x 2" size (or however big the cards are)?

    I mean, you could get some bigger novelty cards or something, I'm sure, if you tried really hard.

    Oh. You meant deck size.
  13. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Hey, I've got a bunch of those oversize cards from the Duelist! :)

    TomB made the order, I started another thread JUST FOR THE DRAFT. Like the previous one, any talk goes in here, that thread is just for card picks ONLY.

    What's "on deck"?
    I get on the clock, but not the other part..
  15. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    "On deck" is a baseball term for "next up."
  16. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    I assume that since the draft has started, we're not going to include Shadowmoor to our draft?

    Ransac, cpa trash man
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    No, we are, I said previously that the P9/Restricted cards would go first so the chance of someone wanting a Shadowmoor card in the first few rounds if highly unlikely, so it didn't make sense to wait a couple days for its release when we could just start on Thursday.
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    You should have tried, it would have interesting to see if anyone figured it out :)
  19. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Eh, I love playing blue/white counter/control, but (at the risk of playing something I'm not adept at) variety is welcome.

    That doesn't mean I'm going to let decent blue spells stay on the board for TOO long. ;)

    Ransac, cpa trash man

    Well, I know what I'm gonna try, lets hope it'll work :D
