SolForge – Elite Tournaments – Draft

This weekend was the second round of Elite Tournaments and featured draft. I missed the constructed event by one elite ticket mostly due to my decline in SolForge activity. That being said this event was fun for me. I’ve been slowly sneaking in more drafts than usual lately and usually go 3-1 with an occasional 4-0. I was expecting to get at least four wins and get a legendary chest, but I ended up going 5-1 losing one match to some bad plays and unlucky draws. It was refreshing to play in a tournament that was more than four rounds. Best of luck in your games. Here’s the capture of the 5-1 draft list. I tend to draft heavy Tempys lately in most of my drafts which is a huge swing from always drafting Nekrium and Uterra before the latest set.

While 500,000 silver is nice, having some kind of pack to open after 5 wins would be nice as well.

Seal of Deepwood wins another draft – 4-0 with Uterra and Nekrium

This card is so powerful! While it doesn’t when games all by itself, with the current draft format it’s easy to position yourself to take advantage of this card in rank 3 and decimate your opponents. Here’s the latest decklist:nek.ute3

Drafted another SolForge Winner – Nekrium and Uterra

The SolForge Gods love me this week. My latest draft gave me a Seal and a Sporelord. Cruised along for another 4-0 victory. I find myself forcing these two factions because it seems almost to always get me 3 victories. My final match was a nail biter down to the final turn!

I’m curious why the platinum packs contain legendaries from the first set, since these drafts contain cards from the newer sets. Hopefully trading is soon, I have plenty of Ghox.

Weekend SolForge Drafting

It’s been a long time since I have been able to draft more than once every few days. This weekend I was able to make it through quite a few drafts, grabbing 8 gold packs, and 2 platinum packs along the way. Having most of my success with Alloyin and Nekrium combinations. This post is a quick one, mostly giving you the two decklists that went 4-0 on Saturday, a first pick poll, and some fun Scrapforge Titan mayhem. Enjoy!

What would your first pick be from these choices?

I went with the Battle Techtician here for the universal buff to all my other creatures. I think the Grimgaunt Predator is top notch, but the removal is limited in the draft format.  I’ve tended to veer away from the Uterra faction, mostly because I don’t have much success with them. Alloyin has always been my faction of choice. This draft was solid across the board. I chose creatures that level up great as the game progresses and took some risks with Alpha and Colossus, having snagged a copy of Jet Pack early. Here’s the draft list from my first 4-0 of the weekend.

4.4aMy next 4-0 draft was similar, but I picked an early Tarsus Deathweaver and made a few picks to combo with. You’ll see many of the same creatures in both drafts: Warcharger, Xithian Hulk, Blight Walker, Vault Technician, and Fleshfiend. I typically do not skip picking these cards because they are good at level 2, although Blight Walker is situational. Here’s a copy of the draft list.

My next few screenshots were an amazingly lucky series of turns, featuring out of control Scrapforge Titans thanks to Jet Pack, Cypien Battlesuit (Amazing!), and Feral Instinct. Went 3-1 with this draft and it was a blast.
