preordered my box of innistrad today, and figured i may as well grab three m12s while i was spending money. i managed to get a rune-scarred demon, drowned catacomb and TWO sorin's vengeance (one foil and my first foil rare). raging so hard at the nonfoil one. my uncommons were crap too; stuff like goblin bangchuckers and the lifegain artifacts. :/
Got a tin and some good cards with it:
Pot of Duality (Super) (The limited edition one, but still, it's cool.)
Number 17: Leviathan Dragon (Secret) (promo on the tin)
Nordic Lights (Ultra)
Wonder Wand (Ultra)
Naturia Exterio (Secret) (From HA, so it's not worth much, but it's cool artwork)
traded my liliana of the veil for a fat pack. first booster: liliana of the veil. WELL WORTH IT. also managed an instigator gang, snapcaster mage, 2x manor gargoyle, mentor of the meek, foil witchbane orb and angel of flight alabaster. raging at the gargoyles but i'm pretty ok with the rest.
draft last night went alright. pulled the br dual, the wr dual (both of which i sold), a p1p1 elite inquisitor which is a reasonably solid p1p1, gutter grime and moorland haunt. then i traded my heartless summoning for a bloodline keeper (which in hindsight was a bad idea, heartless summoning is probably only going to go up in value once people break it) and traded my stromkirk noble for a booster (probably could've pushed for two) and managed an angel of flight alabaster and daybreak ranger, which is fairly unexciting and a ghost quarter may be the most exciting thing in the booster lol.
the only mythics i saw were garruk and mirror-mad phantasm. so pretty meh really. one guy ended up with THREE elder of laurels though (one foil lol).
drafted today and picked up bloodgift demon and mindshrieker, not much else of note from the draft. but then i sold some cards and got three boosters, from which i got champion of the parish, olivia voldaren and uhhh creeping renaissance. i also managed to get the promo go for the throat, which is my first promo so yay.
(i went 2-1 which is also my best draft record yay)
last week's draft was pretty meh, went 1-2 with a wrg deck full of humans and stuff. rares were creepy doll (eugh) and curse of stalked prey, but more importantly i completed my playset of fiend hunters! idk how i managed to pick up two but i was ok with it, and the rest of my removal suite was pretty sexy. but i still went 1-2. :/
and this week i went 2-1 with even more removal, **** was crazy. my only rare was back from the brink, but it won me a match which was cool. i then bought six eventide boosters since they were cheap and managed a figure of destiny, wake thrasher (x2), fiery bombardment, cascade bluffs and nobilis of war. pretty good return on investment imo.
i went 1-2 this week, pulled splinterfright, angel of flight alabaster, and hinterland harbor, so i'm pretty happy. i also got a booster as a spot prize and it contained ludevic's test subject and geist of st traft, which is basically awesome really.
went 1-2 AGAIN. rares were kruin outlaw, stensia bloodhall and curse of stalked prey; i traded a cackling counterpart for a mindshrieker that my friend pulled afterwards as well. pretty happy really.
Today one of my presents was Legendary Collection 2 set. My pulls in that set:
Destiny HERO - Diamond Dude
Gladiator Beast Hoplomus
Elemental HERO Magma Neos
Evil HERO Inferno Wing
Evil HERO Dark Gaia
Yubel - Terror Incarnate
Yubel - The Ultimate Nightmare
Again, nice cards, though I'm missing Yubel. I'll get that card some other time.
Got a bunch of packs as Generic Winter Holiday #28 gifts. Pulled a Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, an Army of the Damned (One of the worse mythics from ISD, in my opinion), and a Vorlinclex (which now puts me at 4/5 Praetors). And a few junk rares. But I also got a Stromkirk Noble (DOUCHEBAG VAMPIRE YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH) and a... that white/black dual from ISD.
