  2. Ep 98 Community Spotlight:
    1. Talk about Big Jon winning, narrowly
  3. League Update:
    1. Explain what draft is
      1. Get 3 sealed boosters booster
      2. Pack 1, Open pack, select a card, pass the remaining cards to your left
      3. Pack 2 same, but pass to the right
      4. Pack 3, same, pass to the left again
    2. Crack-a-pack
      1. It’s a great way to get new cards (Value!)
      2. It’s a way to get entertainment value out of opening booster packs
        1. It’s hard to keep in mind all of the cards you have drafted so far
        2. Have to keep in mind curve considerations
        3. Have to remember which color cards you have already drafted
        4. Figuring out which colors/color pairs are open
        5. You can actually feel pretty mentally drained after doing an entire draft
      3. Drafting feels very skill intensive
        1. Go into detail here, about puzzle solving
        2. How this is similar to Commander (No two games are the same)
      4. Novel gameplay situations happen
    3. Explain why we like draft
      1. Mention that in the past, you would draft more than 1 set at a time
        1. Morph! (Even 3 color morphs)
        2. Outlast
        3. Good Mana fixing (oh the joy of opening a fetch land!)
        4. Really powerful cards (because they were 3 color)
        5. Prowess
      2. Triple Khans of Tarkir
        1. Easily forced u/b or b/w
        2. Ingest mill
        3. Awaken - lands into creatures
      3. Triple Battle for Zendikar
        1. Investigate (Clues!)
          1. Ulvenwald Mysteries (2G - Enchantment when a non-token creature dies, investigate, when you sac a clue, make a 1/1 human token)
        2. Madness
        3. Flip cards (Werewolves)
        4. Delirium (And self mill to go along with it)
      4. Shadows Over Innistrad
        1. Was so awesome because it encouraged bluffing, and made for this excellent tension. Example:
          1. Tap: Sparksmith deals X damage to target creature and X damage to you, where X is the number of Goblins on the battlefield.
        2. Sparksmith - 1R - 1/1
        3. Battering Craghorn - Morph: 1RR - 3/1 First Strike
          1. Whenever Skirk Commando deals combat damage to a player, you may have it deal 2 damage to target creature that player controls.
        4. Skirk Commando - Morph: 2R - 2/1
      5. Onslaught
    4. Favorite draft formats of the past
      1. Ryan is definitely guilty of this some, and it feels kinda good when you are able to “Get Away with it” and still win the draft (Free value)
      2. Zack does it...
    5. How do we feel about rare drafting?
      1. In General
        1. Drafted at Mothership on Wednesday
          1. War of the Spark draft is really Fun!
            1. U/B
            2. Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage was really good
            3. Bond of Insight (3U sorc, each player mills 4, return up to 2 instant/sorcery)
            4. Angrath
            5. Blast Zone
            6. Opponent cast Honor the God-Pharaoh (2R, sorc, discard a card, draw two cards. Amass 1)
          2. Ryan drafted this:
            1. Fblthp Story Narset’s reversal
            2. Neoform
            3. Ashiok’s Skulker
            4. Kiora
            5. Mowu + teferi’s time twist
          3. Zack drafted this:
      2. In Person
        1. MTGA is really great.
        2. It’s super convenient
        3. You don’t have to dedicate a full night, all at once
        4. Drafting against bots feels kinda bad, but it does tie in to that convenience factor
      3. Online
    6. Drafting online vs in person
    7. Summary: Drafting is super fun! And, if you have a local game store, and have never tried it, you totally should!
