SSE 02 - Full clout y'all! Full clout y'all!

And when the mic is in my mouth I turn it out y'all!

Back again for another SSE 4-3-2-2.

Draft (text version of this draft appears at the end of the post)

I think the only major blunder here was taking the Finks over the Stinger P1P1. I was still of the mindset that I could go white, but the first pack clearly was pushing my blue/black.

Round 1

I made a few mistakes in game one, but the Valleymaker was going to make life difficult anyway, and the Rise of the Hobgoblins sealed the deal.

Game 2 things get a little tense with the return of the Hobgoblins and the Druegar Mine-Captain. Despite a nasty trick late in the game, I pull out enough defense to end the race in my favor.

Game 3 Clout on a Hedge-Mage give me the muscle and Sigg gives me the fuel for an easy victory.

Round 2

Game one I could of won a turn earlier if I had used my Leechbonder on my big attack. Game two shows a perfect example of trying to get greedy with Firespout. I knocked him down so low that the Clouted Bandit took him out in two turns.

Round 3

Game 1 a Clouted Bandit does the job as I hold down the fort against his formidable offense.

Game 2 a mistake passes a tap down of his Marauders, and the damage puts me in lethal range of his Flame Javelin.

Game 3 he lures my team into blocking his Marauders and wipes my board. He then proceeds to put gas on the table as I muster up land.

All in all a good draft, I have some play errors to be sure, but I also made some sound decisions in tough situations. I actually feel like I'm getting better with these last two drafts.
