If not Boros, possibly Orzohv, since I am liking the Extort mechanic as well. At least I wouldn't have to play quite as aggressive which sort of hurt me I think when I picked Rakdos in RTR.

Did a release draft tonight. 35 players, finished 2-1 in 12th place. Went Boros again, only b/c I was passed so much Red/White, especially in pack 2 by the woman who was drafting for the first time.

Went 2-3 on Sunday however with Boros. Could have easily gone 3-2 at worst, but had some misplays thanks to sleep deprivation. Had some aggressive packs and I was able to win some games quickly, but with the monsters I drew, it was either win quickly or lose quickly. I somehow got three Spark Troopers in my packs that day which was pretty wicked though.

If anyone wants to play (semi-experience users that understand the rules for the most part) send me a PM. I play mostly streets rules as it's not a tourny... obvious courtesy and fairness are good enough (no black lotus/mox/spam cards/2 turn kill combo's) etc etc.
If you need help setting up send me a PM or check my trade thread as I have an "Off Topic Spoiler Section" coming with OCTGN info soon (it will be the last spoiler on the OP when it's available)
