My promo was a Chaos Wand, which looked beautiful in its shiny version.
Went 3-1 and got to play him in one game, in which my opponent discarded a Bone Dragon from a one card hand, I flipped Bolas, and then reanimated said dragon.

I got a Djinn of Wishes for my promo and had a Tezzeret, Artifice Master and Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants, and Cleansing Nova in my packs. I went 3-1 as my U/B base was not too strong, but nova sure came in hand during the matchups.
I also got a Scapeshift is my prize packs so I would say I had a good day of pulls.

WOW it sounds like if you didn't get a good promo that the rest of the packs made up for it! We couldn't stick around to actually play in the release because we had to wake up early in the morning but it was still cool to see what other people got!

I had Open the Graves as my promo, but the real exciting things were: a Resplendent Angel, and a Vivien Reid.I went 2-1 with a deck featuring a lot of evasive creatures. From my 2 prize packs I got a Liliana, Untouched By Death, and Alpine Moon.
What made the event even better was that I traded for a Crucible of Worlds after the event too.

Best Pre-release I've been to by far. I got a promo Crucible of Worlds! I also opened Tezzeret, Artifice Master, Death Baron, Sigiled Sword of Valeron, and Demon of Catastrophes in the pre-release kit, then I got Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, Liliana, Untouched By Death, and Omniscience in prize packs.

Got a promo Vivien Reid, which was sweet. Ended up R/G with a slight black splash. I decided blue and black weren’t deep enough as a main color, and red was deepest. Green beat out white mainly because of Vivien and Runic Armasaur.
Went 2-2. Deck was strong, but slow. Could easily go over the top of other slower decks, but stugled against faster clocks.
Nothing special in the 2 prize packs.
Wasn’t super hyped for the set because of all the constructed hate cards. So naturally, they were half my rares (Infernal Reckoning, Amulet of Safekeeping, Detection Tower). If I’m going to get an unplayable rare for limited, at least make it something I might actually use, like Scapeshift or Crucible of Worlds

This was my first ever draft, but I got a Sparktongue Dragon and a ton of commons. I passed on a Tezzeret! I know! But it was halfway through the pack so someone else must have passed too, so I don't feel so bad. I went 2/4 with a R/G general deck. No prizes at my LGS but a ton of fun.
