DGM - explained before, full block i liked a lot.
I disagree about RTR. My experience was that Golgari was bad, but Izzet was unplayable. If you were the only Izzet drafter at the table, you'd still need to splash for Auger Spree. Compare to triple GTC. Dimir was the clear worst guild, but if it was open you could build a strong deck.

To me, the beauty of DGR (my favorite format) was that you had to force Gatecrash guilds, but you had to read signals for Return to Ravnica guilds. Once I learned that, I enjoyed it a lot.

yeah i disagree with bing about signals being hard to read. it was really about evaluating the strentghs of the RTR guilds vs the strengths of the GTC guilds. most people seemed to undervalue the 3rd pack cards, so you could "read the signal" and play one or two of those and be set. GTC had plenty of playable mono color cards to fill out the picks. lots of fun. would draft again.

I have a box of RGD sitting at home if there's interest.

I think I was messing around too much with 4-5 color and getting crushed by 2 color Will.dec in that format.

Force the worst guild and get rewarded because nobody else wants it.

I just looked through my collection to see what other full formats I had.

In addition to RGD, I have a box or R and a box of D. A box of Theros block, a box of Theros, Born, and Avacyn.

I also have a box of Fate, which is ironic because we drafted triple Dragons over the weekend because nobody had Fate.

You mean DGR. I have a box of G and R, and I plan to eventually pick up a box of Dragon's Maze, since I liked the format so much.

There were drafts over the weekend?
