This thread is for discussion of this week's Limited Information, which goes live Wednesday morning on magicthegathering.com.

I would really like to know why someone posts video's for educational purposes but then NEVER EVER cares to respond to all of the questions being asked by the viewers...

Every single draft of return to ravnica I did, i would cut Izzet as hard as possible. No straying. Just pick those blue and red cards. I would easily pass a trostani for an essence backlash. Every single draft I ended up with between 2-3 frostburn weirds, and I frequently countered the bombs I had cast with essence backlash for (effectively) the win. I never had a losing record. Then my mtgo broke, but in my real-life drafts, cutting colors hard has still been rewarded. In my honest opinion, "staying open" leads to a lot weaker average power level: yeah you can draft the bomb you open in pack 2, but its all about the average strength of commons and uncommons. Cutting hard gives you that.
