It's time for another Lorwyn block draft!

Next I'll try and see if I can do a triple Fallen Empires draft and then I plan on Urza's block.

Anyway...

Lorwyn, Lorwyn, Morningtide

Pack 1:

Masked Admirers
Ego Erasure
Pollen Lullaby
Boggart Harbinger
Wellgabber Apothecary
Glimmerdust Nap
Zephyr Net
Lignify
Faultgrinder
Footbottom Feast
Weed Strangle
Protective Bubble
Wispmare
Battlewand Oak
Lowland Oaf 
Masked Admirers, easily.  A decent sized body that is resurrectable with a great CiP ability is by far the best choice.
Admirers. Can't see anything interesting wheeling here but maybe we want one of the Black cards (I assume Lignify will be long gone) or perhaps the Battlewand.

Admirers. It's what evish visionary dreams of being.

I admittedly know next to nothing about this format, but the Admirers seems pretty awesome as a source of repeatable card advantage. It's only too bad we have to pass these other sweet green cards.
Evidently, Admirers.
D&D rules were never meant to exist without the presence of a DM. RAW is a lie.
Masked Admirers.
I don't recall ever drafting Lorwyn/Morningtide before, so I might struggle a little in evaluating the cards. Battlewand Oak seems like it has a lot of potential, but I'll agree with the Masked Admirers pick.

I didn't play during Lorwyn but Admirers seems like a strong card.
Yea Admirers.

I found Carmen Sandiego before you were born unless you're Zlehtnoba.

Mulldrifter. I don't know if blue/green is viable in this format, but it's the strongest card in the pack.
For me it's between mulldrifter and sentinels. we all know how good flashing in a flyer is, even if the 2/3 body is kind of weak. 

but yeah, let's go w mull. 

I found Carmen Sandiego before you were born unless you're Zlehtnoba.

Harrier for me.  A repeatable tapper is very stong and better than both Growth and Mulldrifter in my opinion.
I remember both Incrementals being obscene to play against and this one is on color.  Definitely the Growth.

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.

Do you have to target 3 creatures? Or is this like common bond?

Harrier may be stronger than growth, and mulldrifter is definitely stronger than growth, but they pull us into other colors.  We KNOW we're green, and I don't see why we should move into another color when there's a perfectly good in color card there. 



While i tend to agree with your line of thinking here, i don't think we are commited to green yet. We only have 1 card so far, and even though it's a good card, it's not exactly a bomb. Mulldrifter seems like a P1P1 quality card that can be easily splashed, especially if we end up in green (I imagine green has decent fixing).

You have to target 3 creatures.



What he said.  Unlike Common Bond and Seeds of Strength, Growth specifically states "a", "another" and a "third"

Cool, thx

I see the case for Harrier but I really think it comes down to Growth and Mulldrifter, and I like Mulldrifter better. It's easy to splash, is an Elemental (which I like) and can always just be Divination which is an awesome card.

I like Harriers probably more than I should.  That said, GW appears to be a lot easier to manage than GU, and I'm really not sure about Growth's power.

Incremental growth seems ridiculous. I've only read/watched a little bit about this format, but I don't seem to recall blue/green being much of a deck- which is why I'm not going with the mulldrifter.
Mulldrifter is too good to pass. I remember Harriers being weak in this format.

Incremental Growth here.
I love drifter, but can't justify passing Growth in this creature heavy format.
wtf is a tribal instant?

The seer looks cool. So does the marsh and the changeling. I really know nothing about this set, but I'll go Seer. 

I found Carmen Sandiego before you were born unless you're Zlehtnoba.

This set is insane.

I think it's between the Seer and the Extract. I'll pick Moonglove Extract. It doesn't seem great, but removal is removal.
Extract actually is great, it's a colorless shock.
wtf is a tribal instant?

 



A lot of the stuff in this set relies on creature type and being a Goblin in addition to being an instant, it can be returned by such things as Wort, Boggart Auntie, be searched for by Boggart Harbinger, or can reduce the cost of Squeaking Pie Sneak.  Outside of Lorwyn, if I remember correctly, it's another type that buffs Tarmogoyf.

extract and i agree with the previous two picks. can't believe i didn't notice this.
I incline to Avian Changeling. Changeling could make combo with lots cards in Lorwyn.
Extract for colorless removal. If we wanted to move red, the Shock's better for sure.

NO REALLY?
