      Excellent recap! Any advice for those of us doing a dual draft (i.e., half the packs from BFF, half from FUS)?

      It truly depends what you get access to. Get enough dragons, do it. Got a rare Unicorn, good all the way. See alot of adventures, might want to watch out for your all monster teams.

      The things we say are bad in one set, might be amazing with pieces from another set. A good read on the rainbow is the most important thing you can draft.

      I have to agree here. The best thing to do is to read the Rainbow. Also, do some prep work: http://dm.retrobox.eu/?search&rarity...f.fus&sort=3.1

      These are the 212 cards that will potentially be available. I think it really opens things up when you skim thru that list. I like to sort it by purchase cost, and just go down the line.

      I see Good being very strong here. While FUS doesn't have a lot of good Good on its own (not a typo), add it to the Good of BFF and you got a party! Common Elf Thief with a Rare Unicorn? C'mon man! That's the good stuff!

      The other viable option might be to go nuts with low cost characters, regardless of abilities and alignment. There are 67 potential cards going up through cost 3. You could easily put together a solid team that can blitz your opponent and start doing some real damage.

      It's going to be crazy, but fun. Good luck!
