SOM Online Draft #2

Yes, I know I didn’t post draft #1. That was last week sometime, and I split in the finals of an 8-4 with a very reasonable WUR metalcraft deck with double Arrest, Galvanic Blast, Darksteel Juggernaut, 2x Myr Galvanizer, 2x ‘Sol Ring’ Myr + 5 various other Myr. Was good!

OK, so there was some slight fibbing going on. This was actually draft #4 online, the other drafts I did I thought I had a sick deck and I just died really horribly. Understanding of the format was obviously a bit squiff, as I ended up forcing the B/R aggro archetype that I did well with at the store, but it just fell apart. Format knowledge or no, it’s pretty easy to see how this almost mono-R deck came together. Coincidentally, Molten-Tail Masticore is absolutely ridiculous. Absolutely.

1 Molten-Tail Masticore
1 Kuldotha Phoenix
3 Galvanic Blast
1 Shatter
1 Arc Trail
1 Oxidda Scrapmelter
1 Leaden Myr
1 Iron Myr
1 Palladium Myr
2 Goblin Gaveler
1 Panic Spellbomb
1 Necrogen Scudder
1 Rusted Relic
1 Snaptail Glider
1 Strider Harness
1 Memnite
1 Sylvok Lifestaff
1 Darksteel Sentinel
1 Accorder’s Shield
1 Vulshok Replica
1 Liquimetal Coating
2 Swamp
14 Mountain

However, despite it being absolutely ridiculous, and the deck being pretty good (not great, I was on a different plan entirely until I opened Masticore and got passed the Phoenix) I only went 2-1 with this, losing in the finals to a big green deck with some infect guys just for defense, a lot of mana myr and annoying cards, topped off with Bellowing Tanglewurm and Liege of the Tangle. I topped off game 3 by drawing 12 land. Masticore was literally on the bottom of my library, with two Blasts and the Phoenix above it. How depressing!
