Quote from PhilonousHave a helicopter drop you off out front. Light your cigar with a small Indonesian boy holding a black lotus. Then bust out a craw wurm deck with no sleeves. Raw dog shuffle, loose terribly, flip the table, leave in a hovercraft.
Quote from ajarms902Like pretty much everyone with a cube, I'm always into hearing about new formats. I am curious though, how did you guys come to the conclusion of drafting 32 cards? I can see the benefit of 'resetting' the quilt somewhere around halfway, the picking process gets much less interesting as the quilt disappears I'm sure; I'm wondering though, did the smaller number of picks make your deckbuilding more challenging or in this format are your picks typically 80~90% playables?
Quote from tomchapsHaving to spatially plan what you think you can get from a board makes this a very unique method of drafting. Personally, I prefer some amount of hidden information in my drafts, and will only do this as a change of pace
Quote from SpEkKiO99I've been thinking about this and how about if you just make the entire quilt face down? And then only flip over the cards who has at least 1 narrow edge exposed, and then proceed drafting and only flip over cards as their narrow edge becomes exposed. Would that work or would that be too random?
How about to add more planning to the equation, flip over only cards whose adjacent to any face up cards?
Quote from therestlessThis would take a bit more time just on execution and, more importantly, would even further reduce the quality of decks drafted.
Quote from gemsteI tried 1v1 quilt drafting last night. It was a blast. He went 4 color control, where I built an W/U life gain control, then completely sideboarded into a Boros Aggro. The only problem I see with quilt drafting is the huge sideboard. I could have changed my Meta so many times that my opponent wouldn't even begin to think how to sideboard properly.
Quote from Pringlesman
Next time we drafted an 8x10 quilt with everything but the selectable cards being face down.
Quote from PringlesmanBecause we were going to have to "burn" more picks randomly picking cards we raised it to 20 cards per quilt. I ended up drafting this.
Quote from PringlesmanWe are tinkering with the idea about giving people the ability to "burn" a pick by taking a face down card in the center. This would help to unlock the center and not just taking a useless card if the board is currently dead to you. We haven't decided about it yet though.
