  3. Draftaholics Anonymous | by Draftaholics Anonymous on DraftaholicsAnonymous.com The P1P1 feature on this site is really cool. On it, you’re given the option of two cards with the scenario “Which would you take with the first pick in the draft if you had to choose between the two?” The site then shows in real time where the card ranks among all Aether Revolt cards based on how people have picked. The website itself has a number of other features that are also worth checking out, but the P1P1 feature is cool, useful, and certainly unique.
