Since the first one was probably a little too easy, let's do another one real quick. This one I don't think is as obvious and it's not a dynamite pack by any stretch. This pack includes: Angel of Light, Chamberlain Kark, Infernal Gatekeeper, Jungle Queen, Rescue Griffin.

And of course, the poll. After all, it's election time in the US! (cries in corner)

I don't have a ton of dark draft experience yet but I think this boils down to Jungle Queen OR Angel of Light. I think both are viable because 1 has ambush and the other cantrips. That being said, Jungle Queen has the potential to boost some great Wild cards. However I went with Angel of Light for 2 reasons.

1) She is very solid overall. Airborne Ambush and at least +5 health. I'm going to see more cantrip cards so I'm not worried about that so early.

2) I REALLY don't want to give my opponent Chamberlain + Angel. Sure the 60 life thing might be hard to reach, but they just got a HUGE boost and it would force me to hate draft certain Good cards later.

Good point, I didn't even think about counter-picking

These are really good points. That said, in Dark Draft, I'd be pretty happy to bait my opponent into going heavy Good. That never seems to work out to well. I went with Infernal Gatekeeper, but it was that or Jungle Queen for me.

Baiting is a solid option I didn't really think about. It just goes to show how much strategy can be involved in Dark Draft.
