Damnation is always a good way to pull me into control. Fiery Confluence is also similar in that regard, but can be parlayed into other archetypes as well. And Land Tax is just dumb... I'd probably go with Damnation from that pack and go the control route.
Wow, this pack has solid P1P1 options from basically every color. The pick here is probably mood/preference dependent. I love packs like this that let me start the draft out however I please instead of kind of forcing me into something because of the best card in the pack.
For me, I'm taking Strip Mine. It's incredibly underrated as an early pick by my group, so I like to punish them as often as possible. With so many good cards in this pack, a Strip Mine pick keeps you open to almost any archetype and no matter which direction you end up going, you'll wheel something sweet here.
There's so much good stuff here. I'm taking Bitterblossom, but I wouldn't be unhappy first-picking True-Name Nemesis, Elspeth, or Strip Mine. Even Rabblemaster and The Abyss are first-pick quality to build around.
I think I might go with blossom and hope to wheel the abyss
Strip mine and elspeth would be my next 2 picks, but I don't think you can go wrong with any of these.
TNN wouldn't be bad either since it cuts blue from the pack, there would be a good chance of getting more blue when the draft comes back the other direction.
Sylvan library is probably my pick, love that card. I'll know how open green is by the time it comes back around and even if it isn't I'm more than happy to splash Sylvan library in a lot more decks. Survival is great but the decks haven't been coming together for me lately so without knowing the cube I would take the safer pick.
Always catches me off seeing Sylvan Library, for as long as I have played the card it has been a spanish cards (Biblioteca Silvana) and my whole group just refer to it as Bibliotech.
