P1P1, I think Branching Bolt and Agony Warp are close. Those offer you 2 for 1s, but they are also in 2 colors. They are splashable however.

There are a handful of uncommon/rares. I think most dragons and bomby rares are better. Some of the charms are really close, but I'm not sure you want to commit to 3 colors pick 1.

Bonus section:

I was looking at the first 3 lists and noticed a pattern. Use the following guideline for general pick orders.

Bomb(Dragons and shit)

Solid removal(ORing, Thunder, Bolt, Warp)

Really good creatures(Pinger, Battlemages, Carrion Thrash)

Mediocre removal(Bloodpyre, Soul's Fire)

Good creatures with abilities(Druid, Iguanar)

Low casting cost creature with good power/cc ratio.(Crasher, Deathraider)

Bad removal and tricks(Roar)

Fatties(Mosstodon)

Mediocre tricks(Cancel)

Mediocre creatures(Dregscape Zombie)

Is that the Jund Battlemage as a Bant pick?

Also, given the Exalted strategy you laid out for Bant, it seems like Bant Battlemage would actually be a decent midrange pick for the deck, with either ability helping make your Exalted attacker tough or impossible to block.

Sorry, I copy/pasted from the one before and switched the rankings around. It's fixed now.

Did a AAA draft today on beta. Man those players are bad... so heres the question, was it acceptable that i picked rhox war charger(3/3 exalted guy) over knight of the skyward eye in RGW? this is pack 2 pick 5 or so. Just curious your thoughts on how good the rhino is?

Rhox is really really good. Better than the knight.

K making sure i wasnt confused on that. BTW how important would a first round bye be ? I am 14 points off 1800, is it worth the hour drive to the nearest FNM tourney? In the 5 rounds i might be able to pick up all those points.

Default Re: Look Hu's Talking

Every bye matter, but the difference between 0 and 1 bye probably matters the least. People are generally really bad so the odds of picking up the first round win should be around 80%.

I think what I'm trying to say is that it depends on how much that bye is worth vs. time vs. money. You're also not guaranteed to get that bye just by showing up to FNM. It's up to you I guess.
