Mercadian Masques Pre-Release Booster Draft

Adam Kolleth

This was a 8 man Mercadian Masques Booster draft which was done as a side tournament during the main MM pre-release. The drafting process went very smothely with all those in attendance having drafted previously. The tournament was single elimination. One player did rare draft and immediately after drafting cards declared he would take an automatic first round loss to his opponant. This made some of the other players upset that he had done so, but there was nothing I could do besides give the player a first turn loss.

There were only a couple of rules questions mostly regarding the new 6th edition rules system. the only one that really sticks in my head was aquestion of whether or not you could create multiple regeneration shields, therefore dumping away excess mana, to which I answered yes you could create as many as you had appropiate mana for.

The final round had to go into the six extra turns as both players were playing a slow deck (one G/U, the other U/W), although one player did win during the extra six turns giving him the overall match win of 2/0.
