Finally! Someone is recording draft videos for us casual players! Squee isn’t ALL about perfecting his pick order or crafting the best possible deck, he’s here to have fun! That’s not to say he’s a complete durdle, far from it in fact! While he is taking some cards that the top drafters in the world might not, his reasoning is solid, his play decisions and explanations are well thought out, and his focus is on playing good Magic. I think casual players and the more competitive guys out there could all be entertained AND learn something at the same time – which is what we at The Mana Pool have always tried to do. This is a DKA-ISD-ISD 8-4 draft and Squee’s first video. Put it in fullscreen and enjoy! Oh, and you can follow him on Twitter @SqueeGoblnNabob – Chewie
Squee kicks off his first recorded draft by diving head-first into the worst color in the format. With the goal of exploring the strange and greedy picks over the reliable and solid picks, Squee sets out to create amazing game states and live the dream or die trying. Will choosing Red from the get-go work out or will Squee’s loyalty to Mountains place him at the mercy of zombies and ghosts? Can Squee recover from a mulligan misclick? Probably not, but hey, who wants to live forever?
