    Would you guys like to have me generate these packs and "shuffle" them for your purpose?


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  2. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    sure. it would be easier
  3. Melkor Active Member

    I'll add Apocalypse then.
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I'll PM EB since he's been on a couple of times... then we can get started.

    9th Edition. I would go 10th, but we won't know that for sure until at least the weekend. :D
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    All right, so here's the Magic sets:

    Visions
    Urza's Legacy
    Future Sight
    Apocalypse
    9th Edition

    Ransac, can you generate 3 boosters of each set and shuffle? Thanks. Oh, and you can randomly determine the order of drafting too.
  7. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Shuffle all of the packs together or shuffle each pack individually?


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

    Shuffle them all together into one big pile. :)
  9. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Packs Generated and shuffled. Here's the order:

    Melkor
    Spidey
    train
    Mooseman
    EricBess


    Here's your first card:
    • (5) Sisay's Ring

    EDIT: How does shuffling these cards together work with you guys each having 60 points?

    Unfortunately, I packed away the Duelist that has this Draft, so I'm going by memory.

    60 Points is supposed to give you a 40+ size deck. This was way back though, so I think you were supposed to generate a Starter each, including land. However, because most of those expansions don't have Starters, I just said 3 boosters = 45 cards and we can add the land in later - although it might be interesting to have land in to "draft" :)

    Since we have a fourth pack - 80 points maybe? (60 points valued packs at 20/each...)
  12. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Fourth pack? I think Spidey was referring to 3 packs per player.

  13. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Okay, someone explain to me exactly what I'm doing.

    By the way, I'm going to pass on Sisay's Ring, definitely not worth 5 points in my opinion.
  15. EricBess Active Member

    There are 3 packs each, or 45 cards. With 60 points, the average you will end up paying for each card will be 1 1/3. That means there will be a decent number of 0 point cards that you will need to take in order to get cards you want. 80 points would mean you could average just under 2 points per card.

    Realistically, you only play around 20 cards anyway, plus lands and a few lucky "ditches", so you can probably afford to pay 3 points per cards that you intend to play and 4 or 5 if you really want the card. Just remember that every card you get for 4 or 5 points is less cards you can get for 3.

    Given that there are only 5 players, there will probably be a decent number of playable "ditches", so I don't think 80 points is necessary. 60 should be fine. 80 points lets you pay 4 cards for anything that you intend to put in your deck and still probably have a buffer for bombs.

    Ransac - Shuffling everything together should be fine. Since Melkor passed on Sisay's Ring, it decrements in value to 4 and a different 5-point card is turned over. Spidey has the option to take the new card for 5 points or the Ring for 4 points.

    Consider it like a board with 6 slots labeled 0 through 5. When a card is removed from a slot, all higher-point cards shift down one and a new card is dealt into the 5 slot. Until all slots are filled, players can choose to pass instead (as Melkor did).
  16. EricBess Active Member

    We should probably have the points and number of drafted cards listed with the turns. So at this point, we have the following:

    Spidey - 60 pts, 0 cards
    train - 60 pts, 0 cards
    Mooseman - 60 pts, 0 cards
    EricBess - 60 pts, 0 cards
    Melkor - 60 pts, 0 cards


    • (5) <new card>
    • (4) Sisay's Ring
  17. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Spidey - 60 pts, 0 cards
    train - 60 pts, 0 cards
    Mooseman - 60 pts, 0 cards
    EricBess - 60 pts, 0 cards
    Melkor - 60 pts, 0 cards


    • (5) Grave Scrabbler
    • (4) Sisay's Ring



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

    I'll pass also.

    Thanks for doing this Ransac! If it gets to be too much, you can send me the shuffled pile and I can turn the cards over for everyone :)
  19. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Shouldn't spidey see the new card first?
  20. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I did, it's Grave Scrabbler.
