This is a draft excercise, where people can vote on this particular player's next pick in the draft. Scroll down to the latest post to see the current choices, and maybe take a moment to cast your own vote.
I agree with Drogskol Captain. With the four lords at uncommon, and only one pack of DKA, and all of them highly playable, you can't count on getting one later. Tribal is strong in the format, so getting a lord first pick gives you a good starting point for a strong deck.
Burning oil is very good, but I find I'm usually splashing white to flash it back, since RW is such a bad color combo in DII. Meanwhile, Drogskol Captain is probably the best of the lords. Much better than Soul Seizer, which rarely actually transforms.
There's another Chant here, but I think I'd rather diversify with Nephalia Seakite. I think the two are fairly close in power level, and Seakite can act as pseudo-removal for small creatures anyway. Plus it lets us leave up counterspells/tricks without wasting mana.
