Drafting gold cards

Beyond Dominia: The Limited Magic Mill: Drafting gold cards

Just a question... when do you pick gold cards in a draft? How early or how late?

It really depends on the situation. As a general rule (in booster) pick them as early as you feel the card power warrants, but don't turn that pick into a commitment for those two colours as primary options. You could splash for the card or potentially leave it out. If you have one main colour (especially a colour like black or blue which 'dries up' quickly, then always give a roughly equivalent (in power level)card in the main colour over a gold card sharing that colour, as it's better to have a neighbour splash into your colours than assume you are not drafting a colour and commit to it him/herself.
