Round 9: Draft Tech with Wilfy Horig

Posted in Event Coverage on July 23, 2011

By Ray “blisterguy” Walkinshaw

Melbourne's Wilfy Horig was the last undefeated player at the end of day one. For a few years now, Wilfy's name has been echoing through the grapevine as a young player to look out for.

"I've done infinite M12 drafts," the 16 year old stated with a shrug. "I never really did very many M11 drafts – just Nationals last year, and that was it. I didn't really like the format all that much, so I didn't draft it on Magic: Online at all."

Wilfy Horig is out in front this weekend.


I asked if the format felt very different to M11, despite his lack of experience with last year's set. "This Is way faster, definitely. Like, Zendikar fast. I also don't like Green in M12. Their best 2-drop is a 3/2, so it just trades with everyone else's 2-drops, and the rest of their cards are 5 mana 4/4's. The other colors have real cards. I don't think I've even played a Forest in this format yet, and I'm happy about that."

Here's the draft deck Wilfy smashed Draft Pod One with yesterday.
