Get the MTG
March 3, 2001
Hey there. I went to a JSS Qualifier
recently and did OK. My deck was designed to outrun just
about every deck, which it did quite nicely, but didn't
get me past top 8. I heard about the tournament a week
before it took place, and barely made it. Here is the
4 Llanowar Elves
4 River Boa
4 Noble Panther
4 Fleetfoot Panther
4 Vine Dryad
4 Jade Leech
4 Armadillo Cloak
4 Wild Might
4 Elfhame Palace
4 Kavu Chameleon
4 Seal of Cleansing
3 Reverant Silence
2 Vitalizing Wind
The strategy was the same as any Stompy deck, go for a
quick win. I got mana screwed occasionally, so that
explains the Vine Dryads. I figured that I had a chance,
so onto the report.
Match 1. Me vs. Some weird deck
Game 1 was a piece of cake, he had 1 land ! the entire
game, and I got turn 1 E Cloaks on it, and then kept
hammering away and building up mana. He was at 15 fro a
few life spells, but I got the Wind, and he had an
island. I finished the game with 127 life.
Well, at least I am doing well.
Match 3. Me vs. G/R/B weird Stompy.
Game 1 was all about speed, with him dying on trn 5.
Game 2 he stalled for quite a while using walls and a
couple of Hunted Wumpus. I was at 9 life and he was at 2
when I made a mistake. I had a Wild Might in my hand,
and 1 more creature than he did. So, I attacked with
everything. However, he had burn in his hand, and he
killed one creature and blocked everything else. He had
an Avatar of Might and alot of other creatures, so he
won. Game Three he got just about nothing as I dropped a
Leech and kicked him in the head with it and a Boa very
I'm going to Semi's, yay!
Match 4. Me vs. Counter Rebel
This was where I lost. This guy was running U/W and
black ! for Perish, Vampiric Tutor, and Tsabo's Decree.
He had also been coachother junk. Oh well, 5th isn't bad
for my 2nd tournie.
Props to Cybercup for holding the tournie, I really had
Props to the guy who beat me, you taught me a valuable
lesson, and I will ahve my Revenge on you. I hope Jake
Beat you in Quarterfinals, though.
Props to my opponents for taking their beating without
Slops to WotC for printing all of those Rebels,
especially Lin Sivvi. Would you ban it in Constructed
Slops to...... Me I guess, for playing green again and
not making top 4.
Oh well, I guess that I can try in the next JSS
Qualifiers. By the way, my e-mail is email@example.com
Until next time......
