Quote from Puddle Jumper »It's a fast format. That by itself is going to make a lot of people hate it. Fast formats tend to punish people more for having mana problems or failing to pick up enough low drops in the draft, which are largely outside of the players' control.
This is a great post, but I'd like to take a moment to point out that I think Kaladesh does a much more generous job of providing players with low drop options compared to other formats. It seems to me like you had to do a pretty bad job reading signals to truly get screwed out of your low drops in this format. Enough so that mana problems or poor draws would outshadow the actual opportunities presented by the draft.
