This thread is for discussion of this week's Limited Information, which goes live Tuesday morning on magicthegathering.com.
I'm sorry but when are we going to get a walkthrough that was promised back in January? Sure, this article has to fit in with 'common' week and there a few semi-interesting points but I don't think it adds much to people's drafting ability. It would have been much better had SS created a few specific scenarios and said, in this circumstance you might want to consider picking X because ... For example, if you have a dino deck with 2 Fangren Marauders should you still be looking at an Alpha Tyrannx or are you better off picking the Molder Beast? Or, if you are in control and you get a choice between a Wall of Tanglecord and a Neurok Replica what should you take any why. These are questions that would help people make more informed decisions when drafting.

Ok, that was a good discussion. Next? How about how awful rares always get passed? Weird how I always see those semblance anvils p1p5...

This article brings up one of the main reasons I love drafting the Scars/Besieged format at the format. There are an abundance of good common cards to pick up in limited but some cards may only fit into your strategy some of the time. Moriok Reaver was a pretty good example of a card that only fits in noninfect archtypes so it doesn't always make the cut. It gains a ton of value though if your 3 drop spot is bare and/or you have a Morbid Plunder or two to go with it. Plus trading a 12th pick Reaver for a 3rd-4th pick Cystbearer is good times as well.
WG infect? You are kidding right?
