Streaming the #SBBTourney now! (5 minute stream delay, mostly not reading chat)
First round is a Pants first! Got hatball pretty early (I think it took 3 or 4 lvl. 3 triples?). Never found Fork/Wand, but it was enough. Image
Second round is 5th with Mad Catter - strong midgame and got a bunch of random 6s from Ogre Princess+, but didn't get anything coherent and died with Herc+Treasure Map about to go off Image
Paused stream for a bit, but should be back now - will probably be mostly muted because now I have a bunch of friends in the background playing a very loud board game.
Hm I was apparently having some trouble with delay, so now stream is back without delay (but still muted mostly)
3rd round is another 5th. Really horrible shops on the first 3 turns, where basically everything was a 1/1, leading to a lot of bleeding. Never found anything coherent in midgame either. Died with 7 people left in lobby and got 5th though, so that's nice :P Image
4th round is a second! Good early Loki start (2x eenie -> shrink -> gingerbread -> wish), unfortunately lost a close finals because my opponent started at >30 and I started at 2. Image
5th round is a 3rd with Loki - lost to a ghost's cupid, but was probably getting 3rd anyways. Sadly Pandora's Box didn't give me Round Table. At 35 points now, so top 4 in the final round is basically a lock for day 2 (and otherwise probably I don't make it)! Image
And finishing it out with another Pants first! First two treasures were hatball lol Image

Random thought from some Discord discussion: one problem with how some people use 17lands data, that has existed before 17lands though things like hypergeometric calculations, is that people like quantifying things, but often don't actually connect numbers to actual meaning. 1/x
Example: let's say I'm trying to decide whether to keep or mull a 2 land hand, and calculate that I have an 85% chance of drawing my third land by turn 3. One might say "85% is pretty good, I'd keep". But an annoyance I have is that I don't really know what this means! 2/x
How do you know that 85% is "pretty good"? Sure, it's a relatively high number, but I'd bet most people who might make such a statement don't really think through what the number means, and just like that it's high. At what number would you mull the hand? 80%? 75%? 70%? 3/x

I know a lot of people like making tierlists for Storybook Brawl heroes, but I really don't like tierlists, so instead here's a thread with some thoughts I have on the strengths and weaknesses of every hero in SBB, sorted by my avg placement with them on this patch: 1/x
First up: I have not played Evella, Gepetto, Jack's Giant, Krampus, Mrs. Claus, Pan's Shadow, Pup the Magic Dragon, or The Fates on this patch, but they all seem like fairly medium midgame stats heroes to me. Some are probably better than others, idk. 2/x
I also haven't played Grandmother on this patch, but from previous patches, I would treat it similarly to the above midgame stats heroes - one of the main benefits of midgame stats is saving HP, and 10 extra HP is a lot; plus, +3/+3 is big enough to be relevant lategame. 3/x ImageImage

Made it to top 32 in the #SBBTourney, which should be starting soon. Streaming my view at with a 15 minute delay!

You can also find the official coverage at and the leaderboard at…
Looks like I'm in the featured pod too!
Unfortunately starting with a 6th with weak hero choices - never really leveraged Charon well, starting on a Happy Little Tree but not finding further scaling to run it, and not getting a critical Poly slay on 4.0. Will have to place extremely well in the next two to get top 8. Image

Streaming day 2 of the #SBBTourney with 15 minute delay, starting soon! (Should have mic this time; hopefully the delay works)
Oh also - you can watch the coverage here:

And you can follow the standings here:…
Starting off with a first is very nice! Very strong early start, leveraged with Piggy Bank plus kissing a Brave Princess three times to get Ashwood+ while on lvl. 4. Cat's Call let me put the nail in the coffin against Medusa Mirror Mirror Hoard Dragon. Image

Very interesting video from jorbs (excellent strategy game streamer who mostly streams Slay the Spire) on how he thinks about strategy games. I would highly recommend watching the video yourself, but I figured I'd do a thread connecting some of his ideas to MtG draft. 1/x
Again, want to stress that I'd highly recommend watching the video first! jorbs uses a lot of Slay the Spire examples, but the concepts are applicable to all sorts of strategy games (and life in general). This thread is just me applying those ideas specifically to MtG draft. 2/x
First, a small overview: the main concept jorbs talks about in his video is what he dubs "loose Bayesian knowledge" - he approaches strategy games by having prior expectations and hypotheses that he updates through his experiences playing and experimenting in those games. 3/x

The latest Lords of Limited episode was absolute 🔥; fantastic discussion by the lords and twoduckcubed about how to best use 17lands data. However, one thing that I couldn't help but notice was missing was my most-used 17lands stat: Average Last Seen At. So here's a thread! 1/x
A definition: Average Last Seen At, or ALSA, is: "The average pick number where this card was last seen in packs. When a card comes back around on the wheel, only the second time around counts toward the average." So basically, the higher the number, the later the card goes. 2/x
One of the benefits of ALSA is that it is inherently less complex than most stats. GIH WR will be aggregated across a large swath of decks, gameplay situations, and play skills, while the only thing ALSA's aggregation hides is information you might get from signals. 3/x
