No mas hot water this morning, so I did the once over and jumped out quickly. Normally I'm a fan of taking my time, relaxing, and just enjoying the moment. It's my hour of peace before the work day. I guess I'll just have to avoid people today.

Is there a way to turn the Pink Dawn back on? I want to compare my early thoughts to my pick order after two weeks.

I did a draft yesterday where p1p1 was a choice between The Traitor King, Agony Warp, Branching Bolt, Jund Charm, or Executioner's Capsule. Ended up taking capsule. The two guys to my left both ended up on my team, and we were all over each others' colors.

Is there a cap to how many tri-color cards you should play in a deck? I was playing a Jund deck with three carrion thrashes and two of the 3/3s that leaves behind 1/1s (had 3 panaramas and an obelisk).

Not an awful pick. If this is a 3v3, I'd rather have Branching Bolt. You should be able to splash it.

Play as many tri-color cards as you can as long as you are in a single shard and not 5 colors. These cards are 3 colors for a reason(more powerful for their coverted mana cost). 3 Panorama is about average for draft. I don't think it's ever correct to leave solid cards in the board if you have the fixing to play it.

Not that it's much recommendation, but Bob tried Immortal Coil against me. It pretty much read:

2BB Sorcery: Draw a card. Lose the game next turn.

It's very unlikely it will result in you having more "life" with it out than without in Limited. If any shard has a chance of making it work though it's Jund.

Pink Dawn actually has some good material if Alex would unlock it.

Basically let your mana determine your deck in sealed.

In draft try to read signals pack 1 and fall into a shard.

Take fixers high in packs 2. You want at least 3 panoramas, 1 tri-land and maybe 1 obelisk when it's all said and done. You should have 2-3 land by the end of this pack.

Round out your deck in pack 3. Fix your curve, make sure you have enough fixers, and make sure you have at least 23 cards. It's a weird format because you're taking lands fairly early and that cuts into your 23 playables.

I don't think any other format called for such a change in strategy during the draft from pack to pack.
