Minnesota Meta gathered for an afternoon of Collective Drafting.  Just like Jazz Music: there are no wrong notes.  Just notes with more color than others.  We laughed ourselves silly with the various inclusions.  Danny made the mistake of sitting after me again, but he didn’t complain as much as he did the previous time.  With our group of knuckleheads there are no “safe places” to sit.  We wound up with a couple tri-color decks this time.  We blamed Shad for that but he swears it wasn’t him.  Midway through the draft I was passed a Jedi-Smuggler deck that had 5 crazy pods in it already.  I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it, it was so good already so I threw in a May the Force to see how badly the rest of the table could tank it with the last 4 pods.  Unfortunately Danny had the Alliances cycle binder which is just full of gas.  He threw in the Biggs pod to force it into tri-color, but that also gave it a 2nd seeds.  The last 3 inclusions were Rumors at the Cantina, Gamblo and Undercover Dealings.  Unfortunately, Tyler had to leave after only 2 games, so the finished a round robin amongst the remaining 4 players.

Plays of the Day

Mick: the blow out card in my deck proved to be Bring Em On from the terrible and secretly awesome Ord Mantell pod.  In 2 games it let an unassuming chud bring down a main!  Crafty smuggler smacks 0-0-0 for 3, shabaam!!

 

Ethan:  Momaw with bo-rifle and holdout blaster doing work!  Zeb also got linked up with these toys in another game…

 

Shad:  Flopping into the Investigation and calling “Hold Out Blaster”.  Ethan immediately discards it next turn…

 

Kiramode:  1st turn droid factory into various droids getting his reserve up to 8/9 cards with Jabba’s Reach.  Also he was 3-for-3 with Get Me Solo capturing Cracken, Bail and Yoda.

 

Tyler:  Played Hate on Super Yoda making him very sad.

This meta is pretty stacked now that you've drafted Tyler and Kiramode over the past few years. I think there needs to be a crew battle between you guys and the NYC meta.

If you guys come out for one of the worlds we should totally arrange something!  But be warned: all we want to do anymore are SW drafts!
