In my recent article, I talked about outsourcing of card evaluation to other formats and how that can sometimes lead to misevaluations of cards. This deck was recently drafted in a 6-man draft and had Delver of Secrets, but it was left in the sideboard, which, at least in my opinion, shouldn’t have been. To namedrop Kenny Mayer yet again, when I asked him the amount of spells needed to support Delver, he said about 7-10, which this deck has. It was drafted by someone who hadn’t drafted before and the people on his team told him to cut it, but I think that was a mistake.
So what of the cards would you suggest cutting, if you were to do so? (the deck had 15 lands total, the 3 pictured above – Port, Mishra’s Factory and Wasteland – and a mix of Islands and Plains.)
