Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

For those out there, who like us, are not tip-top outside of constructed format, there are some good resources out there to help make this and following weekends fun. First and foremost, pop on over to the mothersite to read Marshall Suttcliffe's really solid and helpful article 'First Look at Drafting Conspiracy: Take the Crown' for tips 'n' tricks. Otherwise, scroll on down to the bottom for a nice summary we've found online.

Righto - back on track to drafting Conspiracy -
In limited, we've always thought of building sealed pool / draft akin to building our own game table monster - starting with creatures as the skeleton and other spells as 'fleshing' out the rest. Beyond this horrible analogy, we're quite useless at strategy but we do know that certain colour combinations lend itself well to evasion, whether it is W/U flyers or Aggro Ramp with R/G. We have noted in this set, there are a fair number of cards in black / white which lends itself more to becoming the 'Monarch' at your table and the benefits of additional card draw that come with that designation.
Redditor 'CountryCaravan' had put together a very decent guide over here which provides a decent primer and suggestions for colour archetypes to consider when drafting this set. Good luck to all those gamers cracking Conspiracy packs this weekend.
