Well, how did everyone enjoy drafting the new set? Mixed feelings? Let me tell you, I've thoroughly enjoyed it. That might have had something to do with drawing a Cranial Extraction

and making my draft money back, followed immediately by going 2-0-1, and winning 4 Kamigawa packs. All in all, my normally terrible Limited rating has started to stabilize and slowly climb out of the depths it has been living in for the past couple of months.

So, curious as to what I drafted to pull of this minor feat? I'll give a list of my deck at the end- no sideboarding occurred in any of my matches. The last match ended in a draw since my opponent wanted to start in another draft, and my second match was going a bit longer then expected. No harm, no foul. The draft split was 4-4-2-2, so its not like there was anything else to gain out of the deal.
