I was drafting in my local hobby shop, and I picked black/red white. Check out the cards I got in Planeshift/apocalypse

2 Terminate
2 Magma Burst
1 Agonizing Demise
2 Annhialate
2 Manacles of Decay
2 Illuminate
1 Captain's Maneuver
1 Breath of Darigaz
1 Flametongue Kavu
2 Angelfire Crusader
1 Pyre Zombie
1 Phyrexian Delver
1 Bloodfire Collosus
1 Aurora Griffin
1 Goham Djinn
1 Duskwalker

1 Gerard's Verdict

Needless to say, I won. I was the only person at our table drafting red black, and the person directly across was the only person drafting red.

Yeah. Nobody really drafts black red. One week I opened up Crosis, got a second pick Zanam Djinn, third pick Shivan Emissary, 4th pick Recoil. I got such a good deck that I won the tourney with only dropping Crosis once.

With apoc most people like going 2 allied colors and a shared opposing color, and everybody knows that BW is horrible when it comes to gold commons/uncommons, so black/red is usually avoided. People draft with apoc in mind and then just start passing Agonising Demise, Scorching Lava and such.

This isn't neccessarily a reliable strategy, but it can often be more rewarding than a deck with 2 Jilts and 2 Goblin Legionaires. Bottom line: People forgot how sick BR is in IN/PS because of apoc and then pass you tons of goodies!
