September 9th

I never really felt like today’s deck came together. I feel I ended up with a pile of good cards that lacked synergy. This is one of my biggest weaknesses and the one I am trying to overcome most.

In pack three I first picked a Jace, the Living Guildpact and second picked Jalira, Master Polymorphist. At that point I decided to get as much blue as I could.

I already had a few blue cards from the previous packs but not enough to make it a strong primary color and I ended up going UWB.

Pack 1

My first pick was Raise the Alarm and I was hoping to get more white and go the token route but that didn’t work. When a late Caustic Tar and an even later Gravedigger came along I thought black was open and I went that way.

Your Thoughts

Once I grabbed Jalira, Master Polymorphist I tried to get some cheap fodder for her. That’s why I picked the Soulmenders. (They also help trigger my Ajani’s Pridemate if I ever get him out.)

If round three would have been round one then I would have had clear direction and gone heavy in blue.

But that’s not how it works. Sometimes you get lemons and need to start squeezing.
