You're drafting New Phyrexia / Mirrodin Besieged / Scars of Mirrodin, and first pick, first pack you open Volt Charge and Pith Driller. Which do you take, and why?


Luis Scott-Vargas: I would take Pith Driller. I was even saying this back in Paris during Besieged. I will go a pretty long way—especially in this format—to stay open. The bombs in this format are just ridiculous, and if I open Volition Reins, Carnifex Demon, Sunblast Angel, Corrupted Conscience, Massacre Wurm, or Black Sun's Zenith—what have you—I want to be able to pick that card and play it. So I want to stick as close as possible to one color with a light splash.


In Paris I 3-0ed a draft by staying mono-red in pack one while taking slightly less powerful cards and was rewarded by opening Sunblast Angel in pack three. That's why I take Pith Driller—it doesn't lock you into any color.
