I opened the second prize pack from the pre-release of the newest Magic the Gathering set Dominaria. This pack was not as exciting as the first, but I learned something. I didn’t notice how the cards are ordered in these boosters at the pre-release, I was probably tired and excitedly ripping open packs. There is a legendary in each pack at the very end before the land and the ad card. So, the uncommon spot only has two cards.
This will add a new dynamic to draft. There will be at least 8 multi-color cards in each pack round. There will be a lot of cards flowing around that will entice people to choose colors very quick. If I learned anything from Ravnica and Return to Ravnica, don’t be fooled by multi-color cards. A really sweet multi-color legendary card may come you’re way, don’t get tilted! Make sure you don’t grab an awesome first pick white/black and then force the colors, passing even better cards from other colors just because of your first pick. Those first pick legendary cards are a trap!
So the only card worth over $0.50 was the rare. I forgot to mention in the video that this is a “Legendary Sorcery”. It can only be cast if you control a legendary creature or planeswalker, making this hard to play. I wouldn’t draft this card just because it seem too situational. It could end up being a dead card in your hand the whole game if you don’t play a legendary creature.
I have one more booster pack to open. I’ll try to do that on Thursday or Friday before the Draft. I plan on posting a Draft Deck share of whatever I make like I did for the pre-release. I’ll also explain how the draft went and how my deck did against others. Thanks for watching!
