WBR Changelings by MULRAH

This draft was a little haphazard, as I tried to stay open despite considering going all-in on Giants with my first pick. By the time the first pack was coming back around, I was seeing other Giants, so I started picking them, hoping to snag the Sunrise Sovereign on the wheel. Unfortunately, clicked to quickly and let it go by. I had some Goblin synergies and some monocolor incentives. When I saw changelings, I grabbed them, since I knew they'd work in a Goblins or Giants deck. I ended up with all but one vivid land, which should help with the manafixing. Deckbuilding proved to be very interesting, as I realized that changelings can create a whole archetype unto themselves, bringing together tribal payoffs across multiple tribes/colors. Stuff like Mad Auntie and Blind-Spot Giant typically wouldn't be in the same deck, but here they can both payoff hopefully. It is possible I've undone the critical mass of some of these themes, resulting in the same issue my first take of Kamigawa had, but I doubt that's the case. This draft was a little piecemeal because of how I drafted it, not because I wasn't seeing enough of the right cards. All in all, this was a very pleasant surprise.
