Sorry, no third match.
I don’t think you misplayed Giddy Up in Match 2, Game 2. Rough beats for the end of that game and the following one.
I would have slammed the Spider. Your green deck would have been sick.
Do not risk Gideon. You are controlling the game, killing a creature every second turn. You don’t need to hurry.
What a crazy draft. I think you should go over that first pick on the show. The oblivion ring vs the spider. I thought the spider was a big enough bomb to take over oblivion ring. Even though Oblivion ring is great removal. Anyway that was a great draft to show because it had a lot of tough picks.
Arachnus Web, Sacred Wolf, Outrage, Plummet, Arachnus Web…?
That first one was supposed to be “Spinner” sorry.
I agree with the guy up here, bomb vs removal should see bomb as a winner, even if it is a green bomb. That spider is the nuts! Nice draft though, love your content as always, “clannie”!
Love your draft vids, keep it up! =)
On an unrelated note, I’m currently having a lot of problems loading (and downloading) the videos from this site. It’s a problem that started occuring just recently. It takes about an hour to load just 10 mins of video :[. There’s nothing wrong with my connection (high quality + fast) and I’ve tried different browsers, clearing out cookies etc., all without any luck. Anyone have any idea what might be wrong? Btw, i’m from Europe.
Well, that’s two m12 drafts where you’ve avoided green. I’d have chosen the spinner in that spot every time. Getting it first pack allows you to fully take advantage of it by drafting spiders and webs.
RE: Roon — I’ve directed the attention of our tech folks to your concern.
Hi Marshal, im new to the site and ive found your videos very helpfull, one question, are you running MtGO on a Mac? and if you do plz tell me how!! (because when you skype crashed that error window was a mac window)
I have constant problems with the video stopping half way thru, then it is impossible to continue the video from the place it pause
First pick you talked about O-ring vs Spinner, saying “I’d rather have a reason to be in green, like Overrun…” or maybe like Arachnus Spinner???? With three packs to pick webs up, and Spinner and all the other spiders even being easily splashable.
why does the gideon look like he is full art?
@PlanetWalls: Thanks, it seems like the problems have been fixed now
why not play the manabarbs in such an agressive deck? seems like a perfect fit. btw would have choosen spinner over o-ring, its a veeeeery good card to open in pack one.
is it not obvious he is flooded in m2g1, he is just holding back lands…
“WHY IS HE NOT CASTING ANYTHING WITH 5 CARDS IN HAND!!!”
are you daft?
(Hey, be nice! It was pretty unlikely that he was holding onto that many additional lands considering how many were on the battlefield. Marshall wasn’t confused, just a little paranoid, and being on edge is helpful for playing carefully. — PlanetWalls)
Good video. I just wanted to note here that you didn’t really mention the possibility of going black white after opening giddeon. the chandra’s out rage is better in aggressive decks. you had the demon that could tutor giddeon my only thought on this one. Thanks for the content and the service you’ve done for the community

Wow, what an epic GR deck … you could have add. It was painful to see spider after spider go by, then to see the second spinner. Green is my favorite color to draft because of people like yourself that pass bombs because of preconceived notions. I feel like Ryan would have talked you into the spinner and you guys could have breezed through 3-0. Miss you Ryan!
Thanks again for the video though. Always enjoy your commentary.
Would it be that wrong to start with Black, red and white?
M1G1: Why are you throwing the Guardian infront of the Bonebreaker instead of the Horse ?!
And why did you kill the Horse ? You could have had a gain 3 life each turn combo with Gideon
Why is the expansion symbol small on the cards?
As many others have said, how can you take o ring over the bomb spider? You say something like ‘ Id rather go into green for a reason etc.’ Well…the spider is a damn fine reason!
i noticed you were on a mac
how did you get MODO on a mac?
Am I the only one who thinks manabarbs was overlooked? He nearly didn’t draft it then he didn’t play it even though he was struggling to fill out the deck. I feel like curving into barbs will win a lot of games for any deck.
There was a sick green deck left on the table in this draft.
So so sick.
