Do you like to play in free tournaments? I do
too. It's Friday night and
I'm playing a rogue deck that most people wouldn't think
of playing. My
friend and I went to Collectors Cashe in Kansas.
Most people are playing
G/R/W tonight (like me). Here's the deck.
3 Thornscape Battlemage
3 After Life (Big tech)
2 Charging Troll
3 Ancient Hydra
1 Ghitu Fire
3 Gerrad's Command
1 Eladammri's Call (Nice card)
4 Armadillo Cloak
3 Quirion Elves
1 Rith, the Awakener
4 Lanowar Elves
4 Thornscape Familiar
1 Birds of Paradise (all i have)
3 Kavu Chameleon
2 Samite Ministrations
3 Lanowar Knights
3 Spidersilk Armor
Here's how I did...
Round 1 Bodie B/U/r Discard
I get matched up with my friend who I came to the
tournament with, great.
We roll the dice, I win. I play first with a
Lanowar Elf. He plays
island. I then cast a thornscape familiar.
He plays a swamp. I cast a
Troll. He plays an island. I cast blastoderm.
He dies right about then.
He was holding 3 Harpys with no other creatures.
I do the same thing I did last time, Lanowar elf.
Then I cast a Familiar.
I cast a Troll next turn. I cloak it, attack.
He has only 3 islands and a
mountain. He never got the swamp to vendetta or
terminate. Cheap way to
win both games.
Round 2 Some nice guy (sorry for forgetting your
name) Counter Rebel
This is probably my worst match-up. He helped me
along the battle. I
didn't get the "Cloak the Troll, dominate it!"
thing. This really sucks.
I get a birds out fast. Then the familiar.
He hasn't really played
anything yet. I cast a Troll and a cloak. He
absorbs that. I attack with
Next I cast another cloak and attack. He dominates
the bird. What???
Next he dominates my troll. He disenchants the
cloak and screws me with it.
He sides in 2 COP green and two wraths. I side in
the Kavu Chameleons. I
get out another great start, again. I have a
Chameleon on turn four. Then
he wraths. He gets a huge rebel chain. I
Eladmari's Call for a Rith. I
get it and play it without him countering. The
chain is too much for me
though and I lose.
The tournament is single-elimination so I'm out.
I'll still have next week
Give me any ideas you have of what i can do to the deck.
I'm adding stafe
next time. See ya
