Coldsnap Flashback Draft

No major money pulls. Coldsnap is a weird set. It was issued to fit into Ice Age well after Ice Age and Alliances were issued. It is a Modern frame set with a very legacy feel: snow lands, cummulative upkeep. Here is my draft selection.

I made a Red-Green deck.

I lost the first game. Here is an early game state.

Look at all those cummulative upkeep triggers.

Second game I was able to grind my opponent since I had a lot of creatures.

I swung with Lightning Serpent for the win.

Third game I lost. Here are a bunch of triggers from my opponent's Karplusan Minotaur.

It seemed close, but not really. My opponent played better and drew some nice beaters.
