My Draft Deck (from Previous Post's picks)

Zulaport Enforcer
2 Null Champion
Phantasmal Abomination
Venerated Teacher
Bloodrite Invoker
Sea Gate Oracle
2 Merfolk Skyscout
Bala Ged Scorpion
Frostwind Invoker
Mnemonic Wall
Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
Nirkana Revenant
Eldrazi Conscription

Induce Despair
2 Deprive
Virulent Swipe
See Beyond
Eel Umbra

9 Swamp
8 Island

Virulent Swipe should've been another Mnemonic Wall. The Abomination should've been anything else, probably. A lot of things target. Decent sideboard card though, perhaps. Wish the deck had more focus. UB is typically a leveler-heavy deck, but I didn't manage to get the number I needed. It still almost got to round 3. So not terrible.

Wondering if a white splash could've been done for Dawnglare Invoker or if that's even worth it.

Wish Revenant flew. Its impact as it hits the board is delayed by a turn, which is kind of a problem sometimes. Definitely doesn't do much against a deck with massive fliers. But again, revealing it with Induce Despair is pretty good. If I didn't have it, I would've probably died to a Lord of Shatterskull Pass. If I had had the same combo for my opponent's Sphinx of Magosi, too, it would've been good. Whereas other big drops like Ulamog's Crusher are barely castable in this deck.
