tournament Adam Katz
Howzit i live in Cape Town South Africa-yes we do
play magic in south africa and no lions don't rome the streets. Anyway i decided
to try out my new cleric deck in a four round local tournament with 23 players.
heres the decklist
1-smother-hey i only had three edicts
3-wrath of g-d
1-bane of the living
i dropped a rotlung on turn three. and a few other
clerics. all he had was a doubtless one and a blood celebrant. I misery charmed
the celebrant then edicted-my opponent conceded.
both of us were just dropping clerics every turn-i
had a rotlung out. it was a pretty boring match until i morphed bane killing his
5 clerics and my rotlung and four others giving me 9 tokens and a
cleric vs r/g madness
Game one i was dead before i knew what was
happening. it took him 5 turns to kill me!
this game was pretty close at the beginning. i used
cabal archon too gain back the life he was burning me. Finally i drew my
oversold cemetary and he pulled his cards.
i was doing really badly here. he kept either
burning my creatures the attaking with huge mongrels are just attacking with
mongrels forcing me to block. i drew my wog and then a 12/12 mortivore but
i was at a fragile 5 life. it didnt matter mortivore ripped him in
Matches 2-0 Games 4-1
blue green madness
before the first game my opponent looked at me
and then said to his friend yes I am in the finals. I am
Game one started really badly. i was mana screwed
and he had his mongrels arragant worms and rootwallas thrashing me. i drew my
fourth land when i was at three and prayed that he had no answer to my wrath-he
didnt. suddenly my entire hand started unfolding (i had a seven card hand he had
no cards in hand). My archon gave me my life back and he conceded when i dropped
slow hands for us both but suddenly i got my combo
out. cemetary, archon and rotlung with a four card graveyard. i started cycling
my creatures getting zombies he lost life and i got em back. then he dropped a
card i would have never guessed he played - upheavel topping two for mongrel,
played a land and birds of paradise.
this game was easy he had nothing and i had
Matches 3-0 Games 6-2
clerics vs b/g/r madness
similar to my second round but with smother and
game one started well for us both. speed hit each
other. his burn and mongrels vs my archons-yes plural and rotlung and others.
he's on 11 im on 10. he topdecks a fledging dragon. now he had a one card
hand and a fledging dragon and zombie infestation to my one card hand of
smother. i draw and throw down my topdecked 12/12
he draws and attaks with his dragan i take he pumps
im on 2! i untap draw and attack and pray. all he answers with is
discarding to the infestation-idrop smother and he concedes.
now he has a good hand and im not that great.
finall i start recovering from the onslought at a low 3 life. he untaps and
dropps violent erruption.
i get a perfect hand and smash him to four before
anything really happens. finally he starts stabilyzing when my liittle brother
comes in to tell me my mom's waiting outside. i sart drawing playing and
saying done without any strategizing. about what i later found out to be
half an hour later i just full out attack with killed him. the spectators
say i should have done it long ago. i shout to my friend to
collect my prize for me and run out.
my mom killed me.
