Hello! This article was originally meant to be a “Keep or Cycle?” article, but I found myself in some spots during Drafts that made me think, and I thought it would be interesting to include them as well. The basic premise is that I present you a scenario and a poll, usually with two options, and you select which choice you’d make. Then tomorrow, I’m going to reveal my answers and you can check to see if your play matches mine or the public’s.
You’re playing an aggressive R/W deck with a lot of exert and a somewhat low curve (seven 2-drops, seven 3-drops, and two 5-drops).

It’s the end of the opponent’s turn.
You’re playing the same R/W deck. You’re on the draw, you both mulligan, and your opponent keeps their card on top. You scry into a Plains.
You’re playing an aggressive B/R deck. You have 17 lands and 3 cycling Deserts, and your curve is overall low. You have two 5-drops and a 7-drop. You’re on the draw and this is your turn 1.
You’re playing the same deck. You’re on the draw against an R/G deck, and this is your turn 2.
You’re playing the same deck against an U/W opponent. You lead with a Camel and it’s now your turn 3 on the play. You just drew a Mountain.
You’re playing game 2 of the same matchup, and your opponent is, indeed, playing a very slow deck himself as well.
So, what are your plays? Vote in the polls and let me know in the comments!
