MTG Arena Premier Drafts
In premier Drafts, you sit down with 7 players each with a booster pack, you take turns picking a card from boosters and send them around to the other players. When you are done with the draft you use the cards you picked plus however many basic lands you see fit to build a 40 card deck. The general consensus is to build a deck with 17 lands and 23 non-land cards, other mana sources, or double-faced cards can make you want to have fewer lands, but the rule of thumb is 17 lands maximum for most decks.
Premier Drafts are timed as you play with other MTGA players and you need to set aside 10-15 minutes for the draft portion as leaving will cause the game to auto-select your cards. After you are done you can create your deck whenever you want and play your matches at your leisure. All cards you draft are added to your collection.
