Oops, we did it again, lost in the finals.
Is there any place worse than 2nd? You're so close that you can taste the victory. You're one card, one play, one move away from the big prize. And
instead, you go home losers.
I'd much rather lose early on.
We did that as well though.
Losing in the first round. We didn't lose again until the end of the tournament. What a way to bookend a tournament. 6-2. Probably gained a
whole 10 points. We're currently at 1653. I'll update later about how high we actually climbed.
One last try in Dallas in a few weeks.
The decks we got in Houston were not spectacular by any means. In fact, I lost almost every round with my deck. The only rounds I won were the ones
that put us over the top at the end. Mason's deck was nuts G/R and he didn't lose a game until the final round. Coincidently, I won that round,
putting us into the finals.
I think I had Filthy Cur in play EVERY game I played. Fairly annoying as I
didn't have much to replace him with. I cast my 'bomb' Laquatus Champion only a few times, and twice he was Wasted Away. I also had Cultural

Now I'd like to talk a bit about Ender's Game.
Read this book.
Its by Orson Scott Card, might actually become a movie someday, and is one of the greatest novels I have ever read.
The book stands alone, but you can also read the sequels which range from boring to almost as good as the first.
I know this isn't much of an update, but I've been busy getting married, moving houses, painting, etc.
Soon we'll start discussing PTQ's for PT Houston, and how much I'll enjoy having PTR in the same room again.
Until next time,
