KTK: PTQ Sealed Pool #3

I drove down to Portland for a Sealed PTQ this weekend. My pool was quite good and I think I came up with the right build, but I lost one match to bad luck (I drew twice as many lands as spells in game 3) and another to misplays when facing down a Pearl Lake Ancient. I dropped at 4-2 so I could get back at a reasonable hour. How would you have built this pool? (The pool is also posted on TappedOut, for those that find that easier to work with.) Post your build in the comments and I’ll do the same later this week.

KTK: PTQ Sealed Pool #2

We had another Sealed PTQ in Seattle this weekend and I did a lot better this time (6-3) despite misbuilding the pool. How would you have built this pool? (The pool is also posted on TappedOut, for those that find that easier to work with.) Post your build in the comments and I’ll do the same later this week.
