Best Chaos Draft Packs
Posted on July 3, 2017, 6 p.m. by BlueMageBrandon
I planning on getting the Total Chaos Draft Bundle from Card Kingdom to draft with my friends. Out of the following packs, which do you think are the best to pick. Thanks!
List of packs we are using Show
Oath of the Gatewatch
Battle for Zendikar
Shadows over Innistrad
Born of the Gods
Dragons of Tarkir
Journey into Nyx
Khans of Tarkir
Saviors of Kamigawa
I would definitely toss a gatecrash in there, that was a great limited with pieces for many strategies

Do you mean which should you pick to have an advantage over your friends? Or which to pick for the whole draft? How many packs? :P

Theros block, Return to Ravnica block, and then Khans of Tarkir (the set has fetches who knows you could get lucky). Theros was a solid limited and so was Ravnica so packs from those set are a good starting place.

2austin5: Gatecrash is in there.
abby315: I'm sorry I wasn't clear enough. I knew I didn't convey it the best but I wasn't sure what else to say. But I meant which packs to have an advantage over my friends. Since we're getting the bundle, the packs for the draft are predetermined so I was wondering what packs I, as a drafter, should pick.

Conspiracy would be the first pack I would grab. Either that or one of the sets with Masterpieces

I've heard that Avacyn Restored and Fate Reforged have a lot of bombs. Should I try to pick those first?

Energy in kaladesh is a parasitic mechanic. What I mean is that it only appears in one block of two sets, and doesn't care about the rest of your deck. Most energy cards (non self-contained, Lightning Runner is ok, Live Fast is unplayable as a worse Read the Bones/Sign in Blood) in those packs are horrible picks, and overall they are weaker and lead to a less fun environment. Similar things can be said about infect in Scars block.
I know that I'm probably to late for your guys's draft, but in the future, if possible, try to get original Inistrad. It's fun, popular, and generally plays well with other mechanics. The most problematic element would likely be "graveyard matters", which can be achieved, albeit less constantly, in normal games, or dedicated tribal themes.
