Running over noobs with Stampeding Elk Herd (Magic the Gathering Draft Story)

I was able to head to the Redcaps Redraft tonight (after my boss randomly let me leave earlier).

I have not drafted in almost 3 weeks so I forgot everything except for Flatten is good. That and Temur Battle Rage steals games. Needless to say I was unprepared.

My Deck:


I played Jund again. It’s becoming my crutch in draft so I’ll have to try something different next time.

My 1st pick in each pack was:


Stampeding Elk Herd

and Frontier Mastiodon, though I guess I lost it, because it wasn’t in my pool later… I don’t know.

I scrubbed out again (I blame being out of practice). The deck was ok, but I made a lot of mistakes.

Round 1: Vs Sultai Manifest

Game 1 I got blown out by Ethereal Ambush. However, Games 2 and 3 he opened like no lands and I trampled him with Elk.

Won 2-1

Round 2: Vs Jeskai Aggro

This game the card that caused me problems was War Flare which caused me to lose game 2. I then lost game 3.

I will someday beat my roommate in limited… Someday…

Loss 1-2

Round 3: RB Dash

I am so upset over a glorious mistake game 1 where I mistook Sheltered Aerie for my 3rd land. I then lost very fast. However, I got the luckiest topdeck in game 2 where I pulled Temur Battle Rage to let the Elk Herd Trample over Sidisi, Undead Vizier for game when he had me dead on the next turn. Game 3 he beat me, but it was a good last 2 games.

Loss 1-2

MVPs of the night was Tread Upon and Temur Battle Rage both of which won me a game or two. I’m still salty over my mistakes, but the rare pool wiped out my salt. The best rare was Soulfire Grandmaster, then Dromoka Command and then… Nothing over $2.


I took Sidisi, then Damnable Pact, Foe Razer Regent and the last guy left before taking the foil Servant of the Scale so I took it.

It was fun, I prefer rare redraft, though my life goal is to go 2-1 again like the draft back in Theros block where I drafted 2 Revel of the Fallen God.

Anyhow, thanks for reading as always.
