I started out white and saw that red was fairly open. Searing Spear at pick 4, without much else in white, was worth moving towards. I also grabbed the stupidly late Rancor (the AI needs to rate that card more highly) and Farseek to see about splashing in green. Of course, I don't see anything in the second pack, but third pack, I get a pick 3 Thragtusk and another Farseek. As much as I don't like splashing for fixing, they help accelerate into the twin Avatars. Third pack in general was just nuts.

From Mark Rosewater's Tumblr: the0uroboros asked: How in the same set can we have a hexproof, unsacrificable(not a word) creature AND a land that makes it uncounterable. How does this lead to interactive play? I believe I’m able to play my creature and you have to deal with it is much more interactive than you counter my creature.
MaRo: One of the classic R&D stories happened during a Scars of Mirrodin draft. Erik Lauer was sitting to my right (meaning that he passed to me in the first and third packs). At the end of the draft, Erik was upset because I was in his colors (black-green). He said, "Didn't you see the signals? I went into black-green in pack one." I replied, "Didn't you see my signals? I started drafting infect six drafts ago."
MaRo: I redesigned him while the effect was on the stack.
