Magic: The Gathering. More Fun in the Philippines

MTG draft with Sesame Street Conspirators. Lol.

Friday MBS Draft with the SSC

I was not able to join FNM due to work-related issues. Grrrr. I just resigned and Monday is supposed to be my last day but for some reason, all of my office accounts were terminated in the late Friday afternoon. I called the IT department to sort things out, making me 15 minutes late for the FNM schedule. I just decided to go home and take a nap before our Mirrodin Besieged draft at Metrowalk.

Here comes the Sesame Street Conspirators with their drafted MBS decks.

Papet MBS Draft

Our first Mirrodin Besieged All-Puppets Draft

We’ve just opened an extremely amazing box! Some notable rares:
[cardlist]
1 Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
2 Inkmoth Nexus
1 Green Suns Zenith
2 Glissa, the Traitor
1 Phyrexian Crusader
1 Mirran Crusader
2 Contested War Zone
1 Black Suns Zenith
1 Hero of Bladehold
1 Red Suns Zenith
1 Slagstorm
[/cardlist]

It was my MBS box. Well, one of my pre-ordered boxes but we decided to use it for draft. 🙁

We had 3 rounds, some players dropped because they don’t have the luxury of time to play until dawn. Haha. Finished 2-1 and I got Phyrexian Crusader and Hero of Bladehold from the prize packs!

Here’s my infect deck:

[deck title=Infect]
[Lands]
8 Forest
8 Swamps
[/Lands]

[Creatures]
2 Blightwidow
2 Flensermite
1 Flesh-Eater Imp
1 Glissa, the Traitor
2 Glissas Courier
2 Rot Wolf
1 Nested Ghoul
1 Phyrexian Juggernaut
1 Quilled Slagwurm
2 Scourge Servant
1 Viridian Corrupter
[/Creatures]

[Spells]1 Go for the Throat
1 Gruesome Encore
1 Morbid Plunder
1 Phyrexis
1 Pistus Strike
1 Spread the Sickness
1 Unnatural Predation
1 Virulent Wound
[/Spells]
[/deck]

It was fun! Lots of fun… once again, it was one happy puppets/MTG friends bonding and great MTG draft experience.

Lastly, I ended up buying Tezzeret. It was so frustrating not to have those good cards from my own box. Haha. Still trying to get over it. 🙂
