Bulk-rare draft?

Limited forum

So a few guys at my lgs were wondering what to do with their bulk rares the other day, and the shop owner offered a neat suggestion. He told us to have a bulk-rare draft! Everyone brings 3 'packs' of 15 cards made up of bulk rares, we mix up all the packs and hand them out to each other, then proceed to draft like normal! Everyone keeps the new bulk rares they open, so you get the chance to see new cards for an edh deck or something. Does that sound like fun to anyone else? I feel like it would likely be a bunch of 5-7 drop bombs bouncing off each other (kinda like Momir on mtgo). Would you do a draft like that?

I'd rather do that instead of having like 90% commons in a draft. What could be a problem though is that everyone will just bring the crap rares that are not only of no worth but also pretty much unplayable.

I guess it will depend on the group that ends up drafting. I'm pretty sure the local guys here would try to make an enjoyable draft experience, so rares like Overgrown Estate that do very little wouldn't see play I think (although I won't know for sure until we try). There are plenty of bulk rare creatures and spells that we should be able to make something work.

It would definitely depend on the people, what they bring, and any ground rules.

I'd at least establish that there shouldn't be more than one copy of a card in a given "pack". I don't think anybody would be happy with a pack of 15 Mudholes.
