Thanks for the updates. I'm still waiting on Darksbane to fix the Card Popup Link - once he does I'll add the cards from posts #69 and #80. We only have 8 cards left to identify, so we're getting pretty close.

Taste for Blood seems SUPER powerful in an almost valar-less environment with little target removal.

I personalty wouldn't want to play valar in draft I would take it so don't have to face it but having to valar that often seems like would hurt you just as much.

We had a draft tournament this past weekend. With a total of 16 packs opened we have seen just 1 Valar. The guy that pulled it did very well in the draft. Taste for Blood is much less rare. Over 16 packs we saw 3 of them.

Yeah I pulled Valar at world's and loved it. I lost to Bomb, but attribute it more to his constant Fear of Winter drops than my Valars.

In terms of rarity, there's a pretty clear setup within each ten card pod within a draft pack. The 'rare', 'uncommon', 'common' schema fits loosely here, in that card slot #1 is always the 'rare' card, slots #2-4 are 'uncommon', and #5-10 are the common cards. I had everyone write down the cards in order as we looked at each ten card pod so that I could look at the distribution after we were done.

The most interesting thing I got out of looking at the pods was that the 'rare' card in each pack wasn't necessarily the most powerful. In my opinion, it seems like the top slot is reserved more for house-defining effects or otherwise unique effects rather than simply the most powerful plots and characters. For example, the top-slot cards out of our packs included (among others):

Syrio Forel
Qyburn
Lashing out
Search and Detain
Maester Luwin
Burning on the Sand
Venomous Blade
Valar Morghulis

While the 'uncommon' cards (slots 2-4 in each pod) included mostly big-time characters, locations and events such as:

Robert Baratheon
Melisandre,
Khal Drogo
Drogon
Eddard Stark
Dagmer Cleftjaw
Lannisport Brothel
Red Vengeance
Risen from the Sea

There also did not seem to be any sort of uniform distribution or balance between # of cards per house between full draft packs. After three draft packs we had one house with 22 cards and another two that only got 14 each. It seems like if you wanted to re-use your draft packs, you'd simply have to record the card order of each pod as you're unboxing them, then once you're done playing, split the cards into top-slot, mid-slots, and bottom-slots, then shuffle each of those up and deal them into new ten card pods. You can then maybe then buy one or two new draft packs each time you draft just to freshen up the card pool slightly and increase the randomness each time you rebuild the draft packs.

OK - using your system I looked at one of my undrafted packs (without rearranging the order) and found the following:

Rares
Hear Me Roar
At the Gates
The Iron Throne (Bara)
Jhogo
Ser Arthur Dayne

I won't bother to type up all of the uncommons and commons.

I will be attempting to determine the rarity of all 240 cards, so anyone who wants to help please feel free to post in this thread. Again I will not be updating the main post until Darksbane fixes the Card Popup Link.

I envy you. I want to participate in a draft tourney!

Its taking too long for the Card Popup Link Updates so I went ahead and updated the list through post #92. So there are only 10 mystery cards remaining.

If people are up for assiting me I will attempt to Identify the rarity of each card as well.

Since there are 240 cards, is it safe to assume that 80 are Rare, 80 are UnCommon and 80 are Common ?

A friend sent me the list of a full pack, in order. No new cards, unfortunately, but it can still be used for determining rarity.

The Power of faith
A Game of Cyvasse
The Power of Blood

I'm You Writ Small
Poisoned Knife
Blood of the Dragon

Acolyte of the Flame
Warrior's Sons

The Iron Throne (LotR)

@LordOfWar: it's a reasonable assumption, but we can't count on it. In the CCG, the breakdown was always close to equal, but not always equal.

Draft Packs hit the UK (and presumably some other parts of Europe) this week, so you can expect an influx of data. I'm hoping to draft with my meta sometime next week - so excited!
