Going Tribal in Winston - Chewie! Slate (10/18/2007)

At the Lorwyn Prerelease, I played Treefolk – black and green, with a small red splash for burn. It was really vicious. If you’d like a slightly longer account, check out the Limited Discussion thread on the forums (located at http://cardshark.freeforums.org, click on Magic the Gathering, and then Limited Discussion). Then feel free to share any of your stories on the various discussion threads!

Anyway, I ended up going 3-0 and splitting with the last guy to take home 11 packs of Lorwyn. I let my mom open 5 of the packs when I went home to visit later that day (she loves opening packs of Magic, I have no idea why), leaving me with 6 packs left. What is there to do with 6 packs of Magic? Why only the greatest two-man Limited format ever – the Winston Draft! Created by Richard Garfield himself, regularly played around the Wizards of the Coast offices, it’s completely awesome. It’s so awesome, in fact, that it will be one of the events at the Magic Invitational this year!

If you check out my articles, you’ll see that I’ve tried before to bring awareness of the Winston to the public. After reading that the Winston would make an appearance at the Invitational, I knew I’d want to write another Winston walkthrough. And after doing one with my Lorwyn winnings, I knew I’d have to write it up. Lorwyn was great for Sealed, but I got the feeling that a draft of any sort would be a truly great thing. So let’s get right into it. If you'd like a quick rundown of how to do one, check out my article entitled “The Winston Draft” and scroll down a bit.

My opponent was my boy Squanto. He played a bit back during, if I remember correctly, the end of Mirrodin block and the beginning of Kamigawa block before he lost interest. Lately he’s been building interest back up again, and we’ve been playing a few games a week with some of my decks. He showed interest in going to the Prerelease with us, even though he’s a self-admitted n00b. He went 2-2, which is pretty good for a n00b. With my various decks, he was making several of the more common rookie mistakes, such as making bad attacks, blocking too early, and using removal at inopportune times, but he’s definitely been showing promise. Anyway, back to the draft. Here's what went down.

Pick 1
Squanto: Pile 1. I can’t see it, but he takes it after only a quick glance.

, and the Oak goes with the possible Treefolk theme I started with my first pot luck. So I’ll take this.

Some good Elves, but not enough to run them, as most of them care about my number of Elves. I managed only four Treefolk here, six counting the two in black, so it doesn’t look like I’ll get to run them except as late-game fat. But since the rest of my green is kind of lacking, it doesn’t look like I’ll be running them at all. The Titan is ridiculous though, so I'll probably splash for him.

That could pick off the Hero if it wasn't, in addition to everything else, an Elemental.
