So my first card off the bat in the first pack was Abraham (UR+), which I thought was a no-brainer until I saw the Joshua, the Conqueror in the same pack...

I was so close to taking Joshua but I'm so glad I went with Abe instead, as that made my offense super easy to draft and super consistent to boot. With an early Abraham my offense was going pretty deep just about every turn (with Book or something to bounce Abe), and if I didn't have Abe then I didn't feel bad about attacking with Leah to set up Abe again or Peleg or Serug banded to one of the massive meek blue guys instead. I feel like I had just enough enhancements with all the DAE being used as good to not have to worry about not being able to rescue with Abe every turn.

But one of the sneaky good plays the deck does is the classic Love at First Sight hand reset. With Return the Captives to bounce all the other player's Heroes before battle LaFS becomes really nasty if they don't see it coming. It can be tough to come back from that.

I think out of the 5 packs my first picks were the following:

Abraham
Philistine Garrison
Root of Jesse
Led Astray
Goliath


Overall, even though there were only 50 cards to draft with, I didn't feel like any cards I included were 'filler' or forced in. The seven I didn't include were I think 4 of the 5 cards passed to me as the last card, along with an Invoking Terror and a couple other crimson cards I couldn't justify fitting with only 1 crimson character (2 with Wild Ox). Super packs seem to make for very consistent and fun drafts; we'll have to see if Nats GoC can live up to the hype!
If you were to go on a trip... where would you like to go?
