Buried Alive overvalued

Status: OPEN, Castle AI Version: 1.0.2

First pick Lightning Bolt into 2nd pick Buried alive over some very playable aggressive options makes very little sense. I'd happily take the Wooded Foothills or Battlefield Forge (setting up a splash), Monastery Mentor, or Miscalculation over the Buried Alive here. Buried Alive is a strange card, at least in my cube. It's a "draft around me" card, but it's not the card that pushes you into that archetype. Getting a first pick Buried Alive isn't powerful enough to make you want to build the reanimator deck I don't think. It's a very narrow role player in the decks it's good in. Am I just undervaluing Buried Alive? or is Castle AI overvaluing it as a build around?

I think the AI treats a lot of the "draft around me" cards like this currently - here's my report, which is similar: http://www.cubetutor.com/championcentral/castleai/pickdecisionreport/13
