Old School Ravnica Draft Event - Sunday 23rd September - Players Needed!

Hi folks,

I'm going to run two or three RAV/GPT/DIS drafts at Penderel's Oak in Holborn on Sunday 23rd September from 12pm.

I figure this is a good way to get in the spirit of things for Return to Ravnica!

I'm taking sign ups here so I know roughly how many packs to prepare (I'm going to use full color proxies not real cards as product from these blocks is prohibitively expensive).

There is no entry fee and everyone is welcome.

If I get a lot of sign ups I'll come up with some kind of multi-draft structure with some kind of prize.

If you can only make it at a certain time let me know and I'll do my best to accomodate.

Want to play?

Yeah I'm happy to supply RDG sets (up to 12) for £15/pop.

Simon, if you want bring your spare Rav, and I'll bring my spare GP/Diss and we can find some equitable way to trade. See you there at 12, gents...?

I'd be up for this, but how are you creating packs? It feels like it could go really wrong with proxies

Sounds like at least one draft will be 15 GBP per pop real cards now.

The proxies packs are entirely randomized (no print runs) but done with the correct rarity and set.

Don't worry it appears I was good back then, I have 34 sets of RGD boosters, and 12 or so extra Guildpact and Dissension. Don't have any extra Rav at all.

If I open a proxied money card should I take it?

I doubt the proxies will get a look in now since we have what looks like 46 draft sets of RGD available!

Taking the money card is clearly foolish in an all proxied set - naturally we'd be re-drafting rares at the end!

Given that they've now printed Bone Beast you should put some into the proxy drafts as future shifted rares :P

We really have to be clear if we are playing with damage on the stack and mana burn on Sunday!  Spectral Searchlight as a finisher in an aggro deck!

I vote for new rules as anything else is too confusing.  But I don't know RGD very well at all.  Will that spoil it?

Not massively, but peel from reality will be a sad :(

I think it will be fine to play with new rules. There are some cards that won't be as powerful, but I think the impact will be pretty minimal. We can always errata Searchlight to cause 1 life loss if the mana is unused :-)

When RGD has been on MTGO it is under new rules and I havem't heard any real complaints about it.

Can't wait to 1st pick Tidewater, Minion of Grozoth!

If its entirely random there can just be one guild heavy pack that ruins the whole draft, but will there be any proxying afterall?

Errataing cards to retain their original functionality seems like a possibility but I think it's impossible to make every card work as it was meant to, at least for Peel from Reality, so we should just play with old rules or suck it up and play a slightly different format.

New rules and 15 GBP drafts is the current plan.

I will bring the proxies just in case.
