31: Keep Your Mind and Options Open – Doc Orders
Doc streams late night limited on Twitch. He began playing Magic: The Gathering at age 6, in Mirage, and has been honing his game since. He gets his fix of paper magic through a Team Draft League in Brooklyn, and he represented the Community at the 2015 Community Cup.
Doc only looks at the spoiler after the full set has been spoiled.
Having the full picture allows you to see the magic number of the set.
Almost every set has “magic numbers”. It might be 3 where there are a lor of 3 drops and a a lot of 3 power creatures, or it could be another number. You won’t get a good feel until the whole set is released.
Focus on remembering / ear marking the three cards you think will be taken after your own pick. This will give you a good idea of what half the table is in.
Find people you like playing with and hammer out sessions.
For Limited, grinding is a good way to prepare. Absorb as many understandings of the format as you can.
Consume as much of other people’s content as you can if you can’t draft as much as you would like.
