Quote from Starkiller2I'd like to join, if possible. Limited is an insanely fun format. I wish I could draft more, but I seem to be only available on the sealed days. Oh well, sealed is still fun (but seriously though, $28 for 6 ZEN? My LGS is crazy.)
Quote from Phyrre56I can't decide if that last post deserves an infraction, or a nomination for Post of the Year.
Quote from domogrueMay I join? Am I a cool enough dude? Does me picking Felidar Sovereign over Burst Lightning make me not cool enough?
I would like to join.

Quote from bateleurI'd like to join please!
I mean hey, you've got an Assault Zeppelid in your... oh, wait... I see what you did there!
Quote from FoodChainGoblins@Neon-Chan - I would have guessed that you've been drafting for longer than that.
I also started during the Ravnica Block (RRR). It was very fun and I quickly learned that UB Counterspell.dec was horrible in Limited. Once I learned that, my wins started to pick up. I remember I used to love the card Convolute. Now, I know how horrible the card is, especially in Limited.
I did extremely well during the TS Block and raised my DCI rating about 150 pts. during this time. It could have been more, but I didn't get to draft it as much as I'd like to. I really enjoyed this time and learned a lot about Limited.
I will put Xth and M10 together since I have had a tough time drafting Core sets. I would guess that I've lost about 50 pts. total during these times.
Lorwyn was pretty good for me. I played vs. a lot of great players during this time and learned so much. Eventide and Shadowmoor was pretty horrible, as Mimics took about another 50 DCI pts.
Alara was pretty good for me, including a 24-1 run (my friend beat me once).
Now that it is Zendikar, I am drafting like crazy since I found a store where you can use store credit. Since the draft only cost $9 and 1st place is $20-25, I have been able to pay twice and I currently have almost enough store credit for a WW box (I still am a Constructed player by heart as much as I hate the current format.). I believe however that my wins can be attributed to luck mainly since I have had Day of Judgment 3 times already (twice opened in P1P1), Vampire Nighthawk like crazy, and just good stuff passed to me, especially in the color Red (it always seems open).
Quote from Neon-chan
I stopped counting rating when I started to attemp big events. It's just such a big up and down since then. I.e. +80 at GP Rotterdam, -30 at nats, -50 at PTQ San Diego and so on...I had everything from 1960 to 1780 in the last year and 1960 was at the beginning ^^ I even managed to qualify for nats by rating and later I needed my Pro lvl 1 to safe my single bye all in the same season ^^
Quote from Neon-chanNice to be here...again
I think Promatim qualified for putting a banner together with his opening post
Quote from Promatim »Please also post a little something about your experience with limited. It can be your favorite limited format of all time, how you got into limited, what you would like to get out of a limited clan... or all of the above!
Quote from Sene »A little deeper explanation for my love with Gnarled Effigy:
Many players are underrating it, but I am probably overrating it. I have a very unique draft philosophy, and it is: Be extremely (ridiculously) greedy. I am always on the draw, not only in sealed. I absolutely love 2-for-1 cards (Cultbrand Cinder is to me an amazing card), and if I see the chance of making a 2-for-1 in a match with the cost of some life (4-7 is reasonable), I take it. Deal me some damage, I don't care! I'm going to have more cards and grind you out of the game. Example: My opponent had a turn 3 Mirror Entity, and I have Peppersmoke in hand, and no faeries in play. I also have Dreamspoiler Witches. What I do is wait and get the 3-for-1, and take 10 damage (I win from there). You probably think I'm totally crazy, and it's possible I am, but this is my way of drafting. I almost never play green, and I almost always play blue. I always play control, and never in my life will I play aggro, not in any format, ever. As a result of this, the games I win are nail-biters, but I WIN them (usually). I win about 75-80% of my matches online, so it can't be that flawed...
It'd be interesting to make a video walkthrough from one of my drafts, so you can see a drafter unlike most others
Quote from Promatim »Edit: Oh, and does anyone want cool titles? Say so if you want to be an officer. I am going to ask that anyone requesting to be an officer have at least 1000 posts, for now. If someone is a true regular to limited, we will see about possibly adjusting this. Figuring things out as we go.
Quote from PuddlejumperSignalling is like farting: it's a natural thing that helps people avoid being where you are, and if you try to do it deliberately, things turn to crap fast.

Quote from DeftJackalLol, only the limited forum would have a thread saying to be nicer to the trolls.
Quote from marengoMy shop mates have been talking about creating a MODO clan for a time now, so I think I'm gonna have to pass . Are you guys going to hang in a channel so I can steal intel from you and take over the world?
