Our Draft win percentage was pretty low with these colors, with the exception of green-white and red-green. The Card Image Gallery is updated every day with the latest card previews. You could also just be Boros Control with good rare/uncommon payoffs like Sunblade Angel and Kaya. I’ll instead be analysing, at length, features of the format and strategies to exploit those features to your advantage, and including useful tips and advice for both the drafting and playing stages. Selesnya was one of the decks I tried out a lot especially early on, but wasn’t usually all that impressed by because its gameplan was usually “build a huge creature with Courage in Crisis and then lose to removal”. Luckily, Davriel has low loyalty and you can deal with him in a multitude of ways early on, but you really want to have a plan to do that as your opponent in black reaches turn 3 – whether that is a flier or a removal spell to get your 2/2 through. Tamiyo’s Epiphany is very close to Aven Eternal in power level. A few proliferate triggers and +1/+1 counters on creatures can quickly turn into an army that can run roughshod over an opponent’s normally curved-out creatures. Tithebearer Giant + Kiora’s Dambreaker are a must in these archetypes. White The fact that you can put counters on the 1/1/sacrifice it to things for value means that leaving them with random bodies is asking to get 2 for 1ed later in the game.

It’s one of the less consistent decks to build, since you really need to pick up some good red burn spells or Callous Dismissals, but the ceiling is really high. or that put counters on things like Pollenbright Druid, and black and red have Battlefield Promotion is the supreme combat trick, and better than Giant Growth in this specific archetype. Hulk/Pollenbright Druid) but is held down by the removal being so good. If you’re going to splash and you don’t have fixers that are great cards by themselves (like Paradise Druid and Leyline Prowler), splash quality cards like the best uncommons and good rares/mythics only. After bombs, prioritize a cheap, proliferate-friendly curve to quickly impact the board and pave the way for your planeswalkers to live and theirs to die. Answering the uncommon walkers before they can get full value is critical to winning many games – let’s look at Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage as an example. Black has the best commons, is powerful and deep, and I drafted it the most in WAR. In I’ve provided a smaller overview of the format alongside this. And what’s that? Draft every single flier you can, and then hope that your evasive 2/2s and 1/3s can peck your opponents to death. I respect that games frequently being decided by a bomb rare can be frustrating, but that is the world we currently live in. It's a format defined by planeswalkers, and as such, you really need to get on the board quickly and have good tools to battle opposing 'walkers. I took a short hiatus from draft guides to do some constructed stuff (I’ll link all of my articles in the Info section at the end) but now I’m back to my roots! in your other colour when you are white/x (but not Boros). War of the Spark Draft playtesting couldn’t be done with normal booster packs like we were used to doing, but since the set wasn’t released yet, we had to print proxies and create a huge Cube Draft to replicate the boosters, which was a new and unique experience for me. Next is removal cards followed by efficient and evasion ones. If you have multiple Thunder Drakes, it’s often worth prioritising cheaper cards of a similar power level over expensive ones. To ease drafting pains and which cards to sideboard in Sealed, we’ve put together a list of color, multi-colored, and colorless cards based on the ranking acronym B.R.E.A.D. I don’t typically force specific colors in War of the Spark Limited, but I almost always find myself in blue on Arena since blue tends to have a lot of great options for generating extra resources.
