You sit down to Rotisserie Draft all the cards in Magic, and you're picking first. What do you take, and why?

Mike Turian

Mike Turian: There is only one pick in this situation: Black Lotus. Not only is Black Lotus the collector's dream card, it is an incredibly powerful card for playing Limited. There are few cards that offer either the color fixing or the mana explosion that Black Lotus provides.

Black Lotus

I think the only cards that are close to Black Lotus in this über-Rotisserie draft are Ancestral Recall or Sol Ring. The three cards Ancestral provides (plus it is another collector's gem) always is a huge bonus. Sol Ring provides the same mana boost that Black Lotus does, but at the end of the day I'd love to walk away from any draft with a Black Lotus.
