You've all seen the drafts like this done on Google docs spreadsheets:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AibgWfz0ukmOdG5Qb21YVW...

Let's do one online, proxy up and/or Cockatrice then play out the games?

How about all cards legal in Legacy or all cards legal in Modern for the card pool?   Or we can just do Vintage as many of the others have.

This is going to be using the Modern card pool and the Modern banned list.

Need 8 players.

1. Thomas "First Pick Cycling Land" Baker

2. Thom "Making Cockatrices Comply" Richardson

3. Simon "Lands that are also a Mox" O'Keeffe

4. Louis "Mulligan to Less than 4" Mackie

5. Dan "Famous Magic Writer and Hat Wearer" Barrett

6. Kieran "Tribal Zombies Turbofog DOES work in Modern" Symington

7. Ross "1UW" Miles Peter "Are You" Dun

8. Paul "1st Pick Gifts, 2nd-5th Picks: 8 hours each" Hodgson

I think this could work and sounds good, and I would be interested.

How about MODERN ROTISSERIE BACKDRAFT!

(with some rules to make sure decks can actually win, etc)

We could do it live some time.  

Just use printed proxies of the reasonable cards and sharpie proxies for random things noone was expecting.  

Might be to much effort but it would be hella fun

what win condition rules you you use?

there must be  more than 360 spells that dont make creatures, do damage or mill cards in the format.

Cube rotisserie backdraft I can get behind

I was thinking: What if instead of your goal being to draft the worst possible deck for someone else to play, you get points based on how close to an average (3-4/4-3) record they get. Thus you are incentivised to give them a deck they can win with, but that is still quite bad.

Alternatively we can backdraft my/someone else's cube sometime!

Will have my deck with me Saturday, been on hols this week. Live version would be aces as it has been difficult to carve out time to play the games.

sounds good to me

I guess I'm declaring Louis the winner of this, then?

Yes I didn't mean to say it wasn't worthwhile it was good.  I'll continue to accept results if people find a time to play.  I'm back for GP Manchester and at the pre-release if Thom or Paul are at those.

I think doing this live probably loses out to Rotisserie of a fixed set of cards on a practical level although I'm up for Rotisserie-ing a Modern cube composed of a lot of the cards from this draft.

Not at either the GP or the Pre-Release unfortunately.

Cube rotisserie would be the nut high, we should crowdsource a modern cube.

Hell, we should rotisserie draft 360 cards from the modern cardpool to form the cube, then rotisserie the cube to make our decks - or is that going a wee bit too far? ;)

No need to crowd source here I am sitting around the corner from a high spec color printer that even has bigger-than-US-Legal paper in it ("Letter"?) that will print 9 proxies to a page like A4.  I know, I trialled it last night.  I've been reunited with my "power" cube (my favorite 360 from Tom LaPille's 720) and I'm working out what I want to print to add to/mess with that.  We can rotisserie the end result any time.

Legend :D
