Is there any way to watch drafts as they are in progress like you can in casual games?

Nope, only after a game is over.

I'm trying to make my official VCL posts in purple.

You posted saying my thread was moved/locked but nothing happened.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

Dual means two. A duel is a battle between two people. Lands that make two colors of mana are dual lands. A normal Magic battle is a duel.

And only if it's a draft YOU are in.
And only if the draft is still running.    

You can watch the games of the draft, with the limitations mentioned above.

Maybe the OP was asking for a way of watching the process of drafting the cards?? We can't do this in MTGO at all, but there is a website ( that allows players to upload their draft logs as a text file so that others can view how the draft unfolded from that player's perspective.
If there was this feature, i mean watching drafts from outside, i would watch drafts for hours and rarely play them , which, ofcourse, means less income for the "company".

Too bad you can't I would watch some.
True post count: 9,900 Thanks Wotc for not counting archived posts. If I post without capital letters than means I'm posting from my phone. For some reason it hates typing capital letters.
