Squee catapults into an 8-4 for the Magic 2015 Release and takes the blue/white evasion draft archetype out for a spin. Along the way, he gives Rogue’s Gloves a shot, picking it over Divination largely because if it’s going to work anywhere, it’s here. He then leans a bit heavily on Avacyn, dumps a bunch of squids on the ground with no Islands to Islandwalk, and wonders if Military Intelligence would actually work better in this deck.
This was recorded during the release week, so the format was still new enough that a lot of these choices may look pretty dumb with our current format awareness. Squee drafts are about experimentation, so suboptimal picks aren’t uncommon, but keep that context in mind before criticizing the card choices too closely.
Squee gives the new Magic Online (V4) a spin in the first Squee video in over a year. Given zero experience with the new client, this is also a good representation of how intuitive the client is. As for the actual draft, well, Squee gets to act like a noob, get called a noob when he’s not acting like a noob, noob away mana like it ain’t no thang, and ultimately determine if Boros can get there in an environment overrun with promo cards, spirits, and new client rage.
Note: Somehow or other, the voiceover desynced slightly from the game audio and video. Let’s just pretend I have Future Sight in play.
