16 Card Mock Draft

Well met!


The 16 Card Snake Draft Format.

Snake Draft.
It's a draft where the positions flip flop every round. For example, if someone drafts first during the very first round, they'll draft last the following round, then they'll draft first again in the next round, and so on.

So, with 4 players drafting 1 card at a time, the order would be: 1234432112344321. Each player ends up with 4 cards (out of 16).

A major part of the fun, besides the game itself, is the draft. I thought it would be fun to hold a mock one. I'll lay out some Classic favorites, and anyone at any point (other than after himself) can draft a card for the mock player whose turn it is to draft.

Note: Each player may draft only 1 card from each tier.

The cards:

Tier I:
Braxas
Nilfheim

Moltenclaw
Charos

Tier II:

Frost Giant of Morh
Kaemon Awa
Master of the Hunt
Krug

Tier III:

Migol Ironwill
Sir Denrick
Mogrimm Forgehammer
Crixus

Tier IV (2 squads each):
Shaolin Monks

Horned Skull Brutes
Tagawa Samurai Archers
Anubian Wolves

Player 1: ????

Re: 16 Card Mock Draft

Nilfheim is the logical choice for fist pick. Decent staying power, big attack for heroes and strong multi attack for squads mixed with heroes.

Re: 16 Card Mock Draft

Agreed. Braxas is lacking for targets.
Tier 2 & 3 look pretty even.
I like the Wolves in Tier 4 but I am shaky on my Squad'Scape.

In this hero-heavy draft, I'll take the hero-killer.

Agreed.

Nilfheim

Mogrimm ?? Not sure. Denrick looks tempting and I love Crixus.
Wolves

Re: 16 Card Mock Draft

Play the part of Player 3, Tornado, and pick one. Mark which tier it's from, and keep it in line with the preceding picks, so that whoever plays the part of Player 4 (who will pick two in a row) knows what's available, and whoever picks for Player 3 next knows at a glance which tiers are still available. I suggest you use my formatting, but certainly improve it if you would like.

edit: Maybe we can also track who made which pick.

Re: 16 Card Mock Draft

Nevermind, Tornado. I'll do it the way I'm imagining it, and we'll see if others keep it going.

Player 1: Nilfheim (Tier 1) (wriggz)
Player 2: Krug (Tier 2) (DS)
Player 3: Mogrimm (Tier 3) (Tornado)
Player 4:
Player 4:

We should remember that you can pick from any tier, provided you have not picked from it before. As I understand it.

Re: 16 Card Mock Draft

Player 1: Nilfheim (Tier 1) (wriggz)
Player 2: Krug (Tier 2) (DS)
Player 3: Mogrimm (Tier 3) (Tornado)
Player 4: Charos (Tier 1) (Ollie)
Player 4: Kaemon Awa (Tier 2) (Ollie)

Avoiding being left with Moltenclaw and Master of the Hunt is the motivation there (assuming that I've understood what's happening and that I'm doing it right). Close call between Braxas and Charos.

Pick 4 is the best drafting position for this pool in my opinion.

MotH has a chance to do really well with what’s on the board. Huge risk/reward but that’s my kinda pick!

Re: 16 Card Mock Draft

Well, I'm not crazy about where this leaves Player 2. But here's what I've got:

Player 1: Nilfheim (Tier 1) (wriggz)
Player 2: Krug (Tier 2) (DS)
Player 3: Mogrimm (Tier 3) (Tornado)
Player 4: Charos (Tier 1) (Ollie)
Player 4: Kaemon Awa (Tier 2) (Ollie)
Player 3: Master of the Hunt (Tier 2) (rym)
Player 2: Braxas (DS)

Not thrilled, but I think it's the best choice left.

well I almost paired nif with brutes for a tournament. Reliable 4/4 is solid regardless of no special powers. Also looks like player 1 is getting the frost giant regardless.
