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?

1. Tom

2. Simon (?)

3. Amar

4. Phil

5. Kieran

6. Russell

7. Ross

8. Maor

I've never played this format but wasn't Peel From Reality utterly busted when they had damage on the stack? Still seems pretty amazing without it (and it was really good in AVR - although there was hardly any other ineraction going on in that format).

what time are people strarting. i can come at 2 ish ... will it all be fuly underway by then or might a second draft be starting?

I'm sure a second draft will happen. 2pm sounds like a reasonable time for it to happen if we start at 12, but I imagine there will be some stragglers and disucssion and food that will mean draft two is more likely to be 3pm 'ish.

New rules will be fine. Peel from Reality goes from "Pick 1" to "merely good" although still obviously V good in Izzet. Spectral Searchlight is still also a very fine pick  ;)

Drooling Groodion and other "sac a creature" effects are the biggest casualties...

See you all about 12!

woop woop draft 2!

I can be there from 12, let there be gaming!

I'd almost say given that we have a lot of time and the boosters are such a precious resource that we should do round robin best-of-3.  But if your draft goes horribly wrong that could be quite miserable.

My original idea was that we'd draft three times but I'm sure we'll play it by ear on the day.  I'll certainly be keeping a tally of wins and losses so we can have an overall winner.

I'll be aiming to be there at 12. Can always cube at the beginning if some of the draft won't be there until later.

I'm hoping to be there at 12 - or before...

i'm aiming for 12 as well. how many people does it look like we've reached? seems like a good haul!

Hey all, still coming but will prob be there around 12.15.

See you soon!

I'm heading out to this now.

If you need to contact me I'm on 07917 052 356.

See you there.
