Beyond Dominia: The Limited Magic Mill: Apoc Booster Review comming

Well it looks like Apoc isn't even close to being as bad as Planeshift was, so I'll most likely do a review on it in a couple weeks. I'm going to get used to the cards and play it some, I don't want to just use my judgement. Watch out for it.
All I can say is that I think R-W-U is probably the strongest, in either In-Ap-Ap or In-Ps-Ap drafting. We'll have to wait and see though.

My rukle will be probably anything red, as it is the most consistent through three packs.

Invasion/Planeshift is all about R/B, and apocalypse adds aither W or U easily. R/W/U may have the best card pool, but only if you get red early and drafting enemy colours through the invasion/planeshift packs will be rough.

I just won a Foil Swords to Plowshares at a In-Ap-Ap going RWU. With In-Ps-Ap I'm not quite sure. UW is pretty consistent in In-Ps, and it has a good red cards such as Magma Burst, Breath of Darigaaz, and Invasions solid Grey Ogres. Then when you open up Apoc almost every pick will be great, I think you could get at LEAST 8-9 good, playable cards. I don't know if this strategy is worthwhile though. I agree with Nev though. Red is the best. Any combination of BWU packed with it is probably best. I don't think Green is worth it.

But look at the power of BG cards such as Consume Strength.

Also it is very difficult to say what to pick. You could open a booster with only one good green card, so you take it, cutting off green and getting the best green cards. You cannot simply write off a colour based on the spoiler list. If BRU is overdrafted, that could lead to you having really great cards in the other colours.

If people want to become good at limited, then they just have to play it against people better than they are. Simple as that.

Thanks for the input Mogg Intellect. I was informing that I'm going to write an analysis of every card in the set soon, as soon as I play the set more and become more familiar with it. I'm simply sharing what colors I've been doing well with as a small reference until that happens.

I almost never decide my colors before I play. You're right, if I opened up a great White card, say Benalish Trapper, and there are only one or two multicolored white cards, I'd probably take the Trapper. One week I opened up a pack full of great black cards - Maurading Knight, Reckless Spite, Agonizing Demise, and Recoil. I took Obsidian Acolyte and won the draft.

Play what comes to you or what you play well with, I simply want to try to help.
