Since i've got a good eye for color so it looks great to people who don't get the "joke" (it's a niceley divided circle after all: the outline gives you 4-6 "regions" to work with), this has actually got me put on platter design more often, resulting in Phyrexia's presence at more private and industry events.

This was probably the block I was best at drafting. I can't quite remember what my record was but I think at one stage I was 8 drafts unbeaten. Generally, I prefered to be in Esper where I could with an artifact theme although I would often splash a 4th or even a 5th colour. Behemoth was not actually very good. The 5 power deck was great in triple shards but weakened noticably with the inclusion of the other sets. Here, the pick for me would clearly be the Tidehollow Strix. A 2 power flyer for 2 is always above the curve. The deathtouch also makes it relevant in the late game as a block anything. The fact it is black and an artifact are also very strong reasons to pick it. Hopefully we will pick up a couple of Sanctum Gargoyle at which point this thing can more or less win the game by itself.
I see a number of cards that could (hopefully?) come back to us, including Obelisk.
Oh, this is one of the blocks I missed! SpearBreaker seems awesome.

When I came back to playing Magic after all of those years this was the first set I drafted, I think only the first two parts of the set had been released at that point. If I remember correctly the strongest draft decks were 3 color, and typically in WGR or WGU. There is an uncommon in the final pack, called Behemoth Sledge that was easily the strongest uncommon. There was one time at my local store where every deck in the final 4 (or perhaps it was every deck but one) was playing at least one copy of this card.Along those lines I like the Behemoth as the pick here.
