possible MtG booster draft event?
« on: January 26, 2013, 14:01:22 »
just a casual tournament, you wouldn't need to bring a DCI card or anything like that :)

the event would be limited to 12 people.

the reason being that I would be bringing a booster box with me, sealed with 36 boosters.

for those unfamiliar, a booster draft works like this; you give me £10, you get given 3 booster packs. this is just so that I can 'get my money back' on the booster box, if enough people go and I get back the £85 that I'll be spending on the booster box, I'll donate the rest to CF's charity :)

we then open one pack of cards at a time, in a circle, and take one card from our booster pack. we then pass it to the next person, and the process continues!

at the end, you should have 40-45 cards, depending on how many tokens/lands/rule cards were in the packs. then we make decks, it can be all the cards, it can just be a few of them, its up to you! your deck should be no smaller than 45 cards including lands though.

you must supply your own lands, I'll have a very limited amount with me! special lands are not allowed unless pulled from boosters. only basic lands.

comment here if you'd be interested in this event! it would be 'first come first serve' on the day, once all 12 places are taken, there wont be any boosters left to give out, sadly :( and I'm opposed to 'bringing your own' in case any 'resealing' happens, which has happened at tournaments in the past.

I'm unsure at the moment, it depends what booster box i can get :)

I can sometimes get some rarer sets for slightly cheaper [new phyrexia, rise of the eldrazi...] so it could be one of those, or, I can arrange with my supplier to get a 'random' box, which will be random packs spread across the last 15 sets

I mentioned why above, I've been at drafts that are bring your own before and people have brought resealed packs along, I'm not saying you will, but its just a little prevention measure.

someone did it with an elderscale wurm and another card that in a draft is a near unbeatable combo and we later found out that the packs he brought were all made up and resealed with a heat gun, its really easy to do and its not fair on anyone else

I'm in if the times work well :)

Bring something old or fun (INN would be perfect).
I'm already bored by Gatecrash, and Dragon Maze would be problematic.

Would like it if you can report it somehow.

How odd! I was thinking of running a draft myself. I'll be happy to bring some product as well if we want to run two drafts - I could either source current product (Dragon's Maze/Gatecrash/Return to Ravnica) or try for a retro draft. I'd love to try another Time Spiral block draft, as it's one of my favourite formats.

I also don't mind bringing a big box of basic land, if that would be to people's tastes. I can also officiate, as I'm a level 1 judge.

I'll ALSO have my EDH decks with me, because Commander is awesome.
