Strictly Casual – Angelic Commander

By William D. O’Dell

About a week ago, I had a friend ask me about looking at some decklists centered on the new From the Vaults: Angels set. Awesome – I can do that! However, there are about three things of note on the request.

THE MANA DORK—Pick A Pack Of Pickled Commons by Jesse Mackenzie 8.4.15

by January 15, 2016

The Mana Dork

My schedule has prevented me from attending an Origins draft thus far, which makes me very sad. So today, we’re going to do a little exercise.

I’ve purchased three boosters of Magic Origins, and I’d like to see what you all think the best draft picks are. I’ve got my answers, which I’ll give in my next column, along with the best of the discussions around this post.
