How to draft Theros?

The Theros set features 249 cards. Prerelease have already started. New sets bring on new cards and new loves. With THS there is no different. Basing on acronym B.R.E.A.D which is very useful way to grade cards in limited I have selected commons and uncommons worth drafting in Theros. I ignored rares and mythic cards, because these cards are quite easy to evaluate and to point out the best possible pick. Every letter from this acronym symbolize one group of cards. Therefore, B is for Bombs, R is for Removal, E is for Evasion, A is for Aggro, D is for Dregs. Basing on B.R.E.A.D Here we go:

In brackets I put a number symbolizing the power level of card.
1 is for superb pick
2 is for great pick
3 is for good pick
