Want a way to play that offers a level playing field and lets you check out new cards at the same time? Then a limited format like Excelsior’s Friday Night Magic Booster Draft may be for you. Unlike constructed formats, where you arrive with a carefully constructed deck ready to play, the booster draft format allows you to build a deck from new cards that you choose as part of the game.
At the start of booster draft, each player opens a booster pack and picks a single card. (Don’t show the other players what you pick!) Then everyone passes the rest of their pack to player on their left, each player then picks a card from the pack they just received before passing again. This process continues until all the cards in those packs have been drafted. Then each player opens a second pack, but this time, you pass the pack to your right. After all those cards are drafted, you do the same with the third pack, passing to the left again.
Once all the packs have been drafted, everyone builds a deck from the cards they have selected. You may add as many basic lands (Plains, Islands, Swamps, Mountains, and Forests) to your deck as you’d like, but each deck must have at least 40 cards.
You then compete against other drafters in normal swiss seated rounds.
