Ranger of Eos (FOIL)
2 Steward of Valeron
This draft didn’t go exactly as planned. I spent the first pack and a half trying to decide which color would be my splash but eventually gave up on that and decided to go with the “6/6/6 and pray” plan. I tried to find one-drops for the Rangers but couldn’t really justify taking Nacatl over Oblivion Ring.
As it was I think I played one Mountain too few since every game I was just trying to hang on until I could draw a Red source and then my good cards would take over.
In the first round I played against a decent Blue Black White deck that took a lot of mulligans. Game 1 I mulliganed and played two Forests before conceding. Game 2 he mulliganed three times and I played a few 2/2s. Game 3 he mulliganed twice but made a game of it with Sigiled Paladin on turn 2 and Tower Gargoyle on turn 4. I got him to block with the Gargoyle and had Branching Bolt. He never played another creature.
Round 2 I played agaisnt a four-color Green deck. Both games I drew my mana quite well and had Bull Cerodon on turn 5. One interesting situation occured when he blocked my 2/2 with his 2/2 and tried to get me with Agony Warp making my 2/2 smaller and killing my 3/3. My Sigil Blessing ended up making it a two-for-one in my favour instead of his.
In the finals I played against a superior Green Red White deck. Both games he had turn 1 Wild Nacatl with a good follow-up while I struggled with my mana. It was close and I may have been able to win the first game with a sixth land on turn for a Bull on turn 8 but it wasn’t to be. His curve was nearly perfect in the second game and I put up a good fight again but was behind throughout. I gave myself a few turns to draw Soul’s Fire Excommunicate Naya Charm Welkin Guide or the second Bull but I couldn’t find it before his multitude of dudes overwhelmed me.
