Blur of Blades does not perform well during testings. I often find myself wishing I drew Shock/Abrade instead.
Plague Belcher is good. Looking to bump up its number in the deck.

If you splash red, Blur of Blades is a good burn spell for that. Jund would probably be the way to go after all the HOU toys it got. That g/b spider and scarab god make a nasty team.

I'd strongly advise against what I call the shallow-pool trap. I've run into it a lot with shallow draft or sealed pools: the temptation to splash a 3rd color because no two colors are coming together exactly right, so you want to replace some of the weaker cards with strong splash cards. The key to limited is consistency. You should only splash when it is consistent (at least 3 ways to find your splash color or dual lands) and impactful (grade A removal or a certain kind of bomb--a la The Scorpion God, but not Archfiend of Ifnir).
So I think it comes down to R/G versus G/B. I prefer black because it's giving you options for mostly better removal (Splendid Agony is better than Blur of Blades and while Open Fire is situationally more useful than Torment of Venom bc it can hit face, with Hapatra and the ability to shrink down bomb rares I think it's better).
The two are very similar except G/B is defensive but synergistic, and G/R is aggressive. IF you have enough cards to put together just G/B without running the off color monuments (or at least not Bontu's), pick whichever style you're more comfortable playing. If you can't and will need to splash a 3rd color for playables, go G/B. That's my take :)

Hey guys - just entered a draft league. They let us pick up 4 packs to start (2 ANK, 2 HOU) and build 30 card decks from there. I think I got the short end of the pulls. Especially when I look at the awesome (frustratingly so) pulls that my GF got, who is even more of a newbie to the game. Anyway, this is what I put together:
Creatures Frilled Sandwalla , Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Naga Vitalist, Dune Beetle , Wretched Camel, Ruin Rat, Bitterblade Warrior , Sidewinder Naga , Ornery Kudu , Giant Spider , Bitterbow Sharpshooters
The idea that I had was to go BG for tossing -1/-1 with Vizier, and having some creatures and pumps. Splashed U for milling.
What else did I pull? Garbage, I think. White was especially thin, which is sad because it's one of my favorite colors.
Blue Strategic Planning, Spellweaver Eternal, Labyrinth Guardian , Ancient Crab , Eternal of Harsh Truths, Tragic Lesson, Illusory Wrappings , Shimmerscale Drake , Striped Riverwinder, Open Into Wonder
Aftermath Onward / Victory
Now, my list of cards is recorded at the store, so I can change the deck but obviously cannot add any cards from elsewhere. I'm wondering if I shouldn't have featured Red in the deck, maybe just cut my losses and went RG to keep it simple. Can anyone help me out? It's fairly casual, but I don't really want to get my head caved in for the next two months of MtG.Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

I won the prerelease that I went to yesterday! I played W/G aggro with a splash of red for Blur of Blades, Magma Spray, and Chaos Maw. Chaos Maw won me every game that I played it. I won 7 prize packs and didn't get any mythic rares between them and my prerelease pack. But I did pull a promo Endless Sands (which looks awesome when it is foil) a pack foil Imminent Doom, a Rhonas's Last Stand, a Bontu's Last Reckoning, and a Kefnet's Last Word. Overall it was a very fun!
