Picked up two Blood Crypts and a Cryptborn Horror though so my standard deck is almost complete.
Just need to order the Innistrad block cards and it should be ready for the end of the month Standard FNM.
Well, the worst time was when was (in order):
1x Descendants' Path
4x Somberwald Sage
I drew four of the sages in a row. Had I got a land instead of the Path, I would have kept it too.
Player of a bit over a month so no idea what the MTG meta is but I've been set on playing a Standard Rakdos deck since the RtR pre-release, though seeing a Zombie/Rakdos aggro deck in action before the FNM made me rethink my plan of not buying any cards from before M13.
Honestly, seeing how absurd black and B/R aggro decks are in the new standard, I don't blame you. One person I played had three 2/2's out on turn 2. Then a blood artist and a gravecrawler the next turn.

Both times I've drafted, I've gone with two colors. More specifically R/U. My first deck had a win condition that I think Graham and James would have been proud of... namely two of the Azor's Eleocutors. The worst part was I was one turn
off from filabustering for a serious win, but the card I needed was the next I would have drawn instead of the one I did.

I disagree that it's 'greed.' I prefer drafting with sets there are cards I want from. It seems foolish to draft from something that doesn't really have anything you want. Even if the card won't neccessarily help my draft deck, if it can help my main deck (or is worth a bit of money/trade), then I'm happy even if I lose.
