How to Turn 16 MTGO Tickets into 13 Booster Packs - Billy Moreau (4/14/2012)

I love drafting. The problem I have with drafting is that I tend to draft rares and uncommons that I don't already have a play set of. Due to this, I have lost many drafts by choosing multicolored lands over commons that would have helped my deck. Due to that fault I tend to stay away from the 8-4 draft queues and play more in the 4-3-2-2 ones.

Recently I've found a new love, Innistrad block 4 pack Sealed tournaments. By playing in a Sealed format, I can no longer take a card just because I don't have it. That eliminates my big drafting problem. Also after further review I've found the Sealed queues to financially be more worthwhile as well. When you play in a 4-3-2-2 draft you play for 3 boosters and 2 tickets or 15 tickets and the prize payout is only 11 packs total. In a 8-4 draft the payout is 12, better but still not that great. In the Innistrad 4 pack Sealed queues you pay for 2 Innistrad boosters and 2 Dark Ascension boosters or 16 tickets. The payout for these tournaments is 5 for winning 3 games, 3 for winning 2, and 1 for winning 1. Overall prize payout is 17 packs (1 player at 3-0, 3 at 2-1, 3 at 1-2 and only one player not getting a pack at 0-3). Another advantage the Sealed queues have is that they are not single elimination, so you can have a great deck that loses round one and, unlike a draft, you can then go on to win your next two and win three packs. When I saw that I was excited to try my luck at it.

In my first Sealed tournament I went 3-0 winning 5 packs. I followed that up with a 2-1 finish for 3 more packs. The third sealed pool brought me a decent 1-2 record winning me 1 pack. My original 16 tickets gave me back 13 boosters. Since that first set of Sealed tournaments I can consistently finish 2-1 or better meaning I am pretty much able to play in a Sealed event for the price of one booster. At this rate my MTGO collection will grow quickly.

I'm now addicted to Innistrad Sealed! Below is what I consider to be the best Sealed pool I've had so far along with the deck I built. I welcome all suggestions on ways I could have made it better.

When I saw my pool I expected to win 3-0. Unfortunately that didn't happen but I did finish 2-1 and won 3 packs. Sorin is too good to not use so when I saw him I knew I was going at least Black White. When I saw the Daybreak Ranger

. I felt the colors had enough to do very well. Unfortunately in a 4 pack Sealed tournament your deck only needs to be 30 cards so any card that mills your opponent will be very powerful and will often times win you all three rounds.

Please leave me suggestions on this draft deck and any ideas you have for future articles. Until next time!
