The thing is you can get every non-red land cycler during like picks 4-9. Depending on your deck depends on how many land cyclers you're going to want to pick up. I usually take a fiery fall or something, and end up with like a 2G 5/5 guy, a grey ogre domain guy, couple other really solid guys/removal, and like 4 land cyclers. I've gotten the white/blue ones as late as 10th-11th pick. The green ones go fast because it's the most drafted color, and obv the red ones go fast, but the other one's don't go as fast because esper benefits the most of any shard in conflux, so they're usually taking quality guys, which lets you take their fixers later than everyone elses.

I think you're just picking the blue/white/black fixers too early.

Lady: Fine White Devil. You win. I'll move. (She basically grabbed her stuff and moved to the car behind us.)
Will: Lol, this will work too.
I am somewhat surprised that Will didn't pull the, 'Don't you know who I am?' schtick.

Maybe. If I know a 5:40 train is coming, I don't take the 5:25 train. Usually by Conflux I just want to make sure I get on a train, since missing a train is a good way to get boned. Like I'm not nuts, I'm taking Drag Down over Absorb Vis every day of the week...but you need to have a large number of "good" spells from Shards. If you are in Conflux needing the 5c hits AND the fixings, it seems like you could be just wishing...

again, limited sample size...ymmv.

I usually go into conflux with about 16-17 playables. The fact of the matter is that you're usually getting a playable from picks 1-10/11, with probably on average 1 playable in 1 of your first 2 packs from pick 12-13 (usually swerve or resounding wave, but often awesome dudes like kederekt creeper) That, assuming you're taken 6-7 fixers, doesn't really mean you're "hoping" in conflux. Usually 10-12 conflux cards end up in my deck, it's just so deep for the 5 color deck. So you only need to really pick up 6 playables, which you'll do with ease. The fixing is just generally icing on the cake. You can count on getting at least 1-2 land cyclers after pack 3-4, at least right now.

Like, this is obviously loose because it depends on your deck, but...

Bombs
Premium removal (fall/drag) / Artifact Sphere (This depends on how much fixing you have)
Premium dudes (2G domain guy, the grey ogres with domain abilities, the 5 mana 8/8)***
land cyclers/ the 2W 2/domain guy, he's awesome.
other guys


*** imo, these guys are where your deck becomes from above average to bonkers. Assuming you have like 2 of the 3 mana awesome dudes from shards, plus 2 of these guys, and 2 bombs, your deck is just stacked.

Stop using bad players / tables as your example. The only cycler that should table is the blue one.

1) Just because it's the PT doesn't mean the table can't be bad.
2) There are instances when this will occur. If there is tons of mana fixing in the first two packs.
3) Sylvan Bounty and Fiery Fall should never table. The blue one is the only one you should ever expecrt to come back to you. The black and white one is hit or miss, but I wouldn't count on it.
