Sweet!

I see three viable options.

I'll go with Serra Angel.
I really like Clone, but Serra Angel will win more.
Tolkein was a jerk. Seriously, what DM sends 9 Wraith Lords at a Lvl 2 party of Halflings. The only 'correct' way to play D&D is by whatever method is making the group you have at that session, have the most fun.
Serra Angel

Those who fear the darkness have never seen what the light can do.

I've seen angels fall from blinding heights. But you yourself are nothing so divine. Just next in line.

Come on guys, this is draft number 5 lets go for something a bit more exciting than a 4/4 flying, vigilent psuedo bomb.

I'm going for Searing Spear and therefore leaving my colour options more open but aiming for a mono red aggro deck.
Angel. It's deep white, but it gives a good base, and we can still go any other color. It's not a debacle like the Nocturnus two rounds ago.
The pick here is, in my opinion, quite clearly Serra Angel. The two other viable picks (Spear and Clone) have other strong cards in their colors here, so we are more likely to see someone else pick something out of our color down the line.

That said, Clone seems a lot more fun and I have yet to play with it (though I have played against it - my opponent won by cloning my Ravenous Rats, thus stripping me of the card that would allow me to win the game, which was an awesome skill play by him).

Angel. Taking it also pretty much cuts white.

Good ol' Zokorad. Never a dull moment!
Angel please.
Yep, Serra Angel looks good here.
angel but i really dig clone.
My favorite Clone moment this set was in a home sealed, I cloned a Slumbering Dragon and sandbagged an Unsummon for after it woke up!

But then other times you're cloning stuff that's not quite as fun.

It is a good answer to the Legendary cycle.
Serra Angel.

Serra Angel
Sarah Angel.
I'd rather draft something more green than white, so I'll call Flinthoof Boar. I'm fine with losing on this one though.
D&D rules were never meant to exist without the presence of a DM. RAW is a lie.
The pick here is, in my opinion, quite clearly Serra Angel. The two other viable picks (Spear and Clone) have other strong cards in their colors here, so we are more likely to see someone else pick something out of our color down the line.



I think Boar is also perfectly justifiable as a first pick.  A hasty 3/3 for 2 is pretty amazing.

it's only hasty if it's for 3.

I would have to go with Clone.  I can Clone the Angel.  I can Clone any other good picks I get.  I can Clone any grave threats that My opponent plays.

It also has the inherent ability to remove Legendary creatures from the battlefield should any be drafted. It's more versatile in My opinion.

Sure, but Serra Angel is good every time you cast it.  With Clone, your best option may be a Wind Drake.  There have been times where I've had to do this.  Clone might have more high end potential, but I think Serra Angel is going to be better more often.
Lot of good options, may as well go for just cutting white, but Rings and Avens are great.

Pascifism

For my mono-red beatdown deck - Searing Spear

For the community draft - Pacifism and a clear warning to stay out of red as we have now passed two spears.
I'd have to go with Pacifism as well.  Late or early game it works wonders.

Pacifism
If there hadnt been a searing spear in that last pack I'd say take the spear here.

I wouldn't feel really comfortable taking Arbor Elf after first picking a double white card, however green is probably the best color in the set, and I'm sure the guy to our right will shy away from green knowing he passed an elf and a prey upon.

Pacifism is also a fine option, and probably the safest pick.

With all the said I would take the elf. Green decks want as many of these as they can get, and it's just my gut feeling the guy to out right will keep shipping us green cards in this and the last pack.

Pacifism. This pack is really powerful.

Congratulations, they have activated your trap card!
For me it comes down to Pacifism or Arctic Aven. I would agree with whoever said that having passed a Searing Spear, it would not be good to take the second one. I wouldn't ever pick Arbor Elf this high unless the pack was total crap and this one clearly is not. Ultimately, I think we have to go with the Pacifism. Removal in white isn't very abundant and this is the best for the cost.
Yikes, that is a pack I guess. Pacifism for all the reasons that have been mentioned.

Either way, we could be sending a signal that white is open. 

I'll go with the Aven.  Hopefully we can cut enough white that our receiver abandons it.

Then again, we may not even end up white.

aven sends a less strong signal because it requires commitment to two colors to really capitalize.
