Default Guilds of Ravnica

Anyone else do any Pre-Rel's or bust any pre-order boxes?

Went to the Friday midnight pre-rel. Went Golgari. Was only going to stay and play if my pool was excellent and had a good shot at 4-0 or 3-0-1. It was decent. Could have been good if I had gotten the right guild gates to splash white so decided to grab my pre-order booster box and head home since I was possibly playing the Sat Noon and 6pm events also.



Got home and busted the booster box. No PW but I think I still did pretty good. (Can't tell from pic but one of the Temples is foil)



Ended up not going to bed until 6am anyway so the Noon event was not happening. Went to the 6pm and went Golgari again. Not the greatest guild for limited, none of them are really power houses, but the recursion theme doesn't work so great in 40 card decks. I just wanted a shot at a really good promo. I think I made the right decision.



Built a Sultai mix since I had good guild gates for it. Mana was fine but had no bombs or high end at all. Tons of removal and decent 2-3 drops. Ended up against an almost mirror deck round 1, wtf. He had much better surveil cantrop guys which I had 0 of and they ended up giving him gm3. Didn't have much hope of pulling out 2 more wins to make it into 1 pack of prize support so decided to call it a night happy with my bust. Not as crazy about the set as some people are. Some good modern and commander cards. Will see how it drafts next weekend. Hoping to get back into standard for the first time in 3-4 years with this rotation. Mostly for fun and to get the rust off my game so my limited play improves. Maybe some Esper goodness.

Nice hits! I think your first pool looked great, personally.
Also, I think the 2 Planeswalkers in the set are mediocre to bad, so don't be too heartbroken about not opening any.
I did 3 prerelease events this weekend using Boros, Izzet and Dimir. I finished 4th, 1st and 1st respectively. I also picked up my case of the new set, so I had a pretty good weekend!

Yeah the first pool could have been very good, had more good GW than anything just needed one guild gate or cpl decent mana fixers. Yeah I am definitely not going out of my way to buy singles of any of the PW's this set.
