I am so awful that when someone passed me Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
, who absolutely beats face in limited, I still go 1-2. Though at least this time I remember to draft multiple victory conditions, fewer terrible cards, and leave room for more land and better mana fixing. Also went 2-0, 1-2, 0-2 in the matches instead of 0-2, 0-2, 2-0, which is slightly more favorable. I felt like my mistakes this time were smaller, and often play mistakes, instead of huge, gaping deck construction failures; the games were closer and I never got completely blown out or mana-hosed, even running three colors this time (GRB). That's progress.
I did have to laugh when the guy next to me tried the exact same Aura Gnarlid
shenanigans I tried the night before and went 0-3 despite my passing him basically every Aura spell that came up.
