A Tale of Mythic Proportions: GP Melbourne, 5th

- Richard Grace
published on 1/7/2003

The story of my GP: Melbourne really starts at the Onslaught Prerelease, where myself and the rest of the DGAF boys are frantically going around to everyone that has any packs that they want to sell, trying to get as many packs as we possibly can. From there, my team-mates and I started to go through the motions of the "hypothetical" draft...

Once you hand in your decklist at a constructed tournament, you have set your tools for that tournament in stone. Before you know your final decklist, there are a lot of choices to be made. How are you going to make sure you have your deck the way you want to during the tournament? I'll show the design process from scratch, and how to evaluate your deck during and after the process of deck construction. I included two excel sheets with today's article to help you with this...

Accomplishments - Victor took 3rd at the 2002 European Championships and developed Angry Hermit Part II for PT Houston.

From Zero to Forty - An Introduction to Draft by Michael Thicke

From Zero to Forty - An Introduction to Draft

- Michael Thicke
published on 12/26/2002

Since I wrote my articles on Onslaught Sealed and Onslaught Draft, I have had many people ask me for advice on drafting in general. I haven't been able to find any good introductory material on drafting, so I'm going to try and do it myself. There have been articles before that give drafting formulas - 17-18 land, 12-15 creatures, etc. I've always been unsatisfied with those articles… they don't teach me anything fundamental, where do these numbers come from?..

The Importance of 2 Drops in Onslaught Limited by Gabe Carleton-Barnes

The Importance of 2 Drops in Onslaught Limited

published on 12/10/2002

The more I play it the more I like this format. People complain about the bombs a lot, and they can certainly turn a game around, but I don't think they are as important as people like to think. More important, in my mind, is the 2-drop. 2-drops decided almost all the rounds that I lost...

In the previous articles of this series we laid the groundwork by learning just how important knowing even some of the opponent's cards can be, as well as developing an awareness of an opponent's behavioral clues. Here we take the final step in this process - covering in more specific detail the kinds of things you can watch for, the valuable information to be gained, and why it all matters in the first place. Along the way we'll take a look at lying, acting, body language, bluffing, and how to convert all of it into that crucial informational edge.

I’m convinced that a good understanding of archetypes is one of the most crucial of all keys to improving most players’ results. One of the places where the importance of archetypes can really show up is when it comes to fatties. When the opportunity presents itself to draft a deck with lots of fat, there are a number of approaches that can allow you to best take advantage of the situation....

I'm going to assume that most Premium readers know the basics of drafting; that you draft archetypes and not just good cards, that you appreciate the importance of having a good curve, and that you have a good grasp of the relative power of the cards and colors in the draft formats in which you compete. The intent of this article is to provide some rules that can take you to the next level....

Improving as a Magic player is often about plateaus. For drafters, one of the biggest steps often lies in moving beyond just having a good idea of how the cards "rank" against each other and instead choosing the best cards for your deck. There's a good chance you've seen me talking about "making your deck stronger than the sum of its parts". In this article, I'll show you one great way to start doing just that.
