Round 1:Liam playing u/r rage

Game 1:I get stuck on 3 land for most of the game and he gets me down to 6. He rages me with a mirari out but he doesnt do it twice so i have a chance but he just mises rage next turn.This isnt looking good.

+4 Mage +3 Gainsay, -3 Aether Burst -3 Wrath of God -1 Repulse

Game 2:This game i stall on 4 land this time but then i fact and get the land i need and couple counterspells. I name a mage for rage and another for ftk with plenty of backup and then i lay the enforcer and smash his face.

Game 3:Same as game 2

Matches:1-0 Games:2-1

Round 2:Dan playing B/W

Game 1:He duresses me taking absorb but then i draw 3 straight lands and im barely hanging on to a Nantuko Shade and Lynx when i mise the wrath.Next turn i drop an enforcer and it was over from there.

+3 Persuasion, - 2 Disrupt -1 Memory Lapse

Game 2:I counter everything and drop an enforcer and im smashing him and then i make the worst play of the day and counter a slay when it cant target my enforcer,but it was ok because it was over in two turns

Matches 2-0 Games 4-1

Round 3:Mass State Champ Jimmy Baker R/G

Game 1:He gets some eaerly beats in with Rootwalla and Titan he drops a mongrel and then i wrath im pretty low on life when i drop an enforcer but i absorb two spells brining me to 8 and i smash him with enforcer.

+3 persuasion +2 hibernation, - 2 disrupt - 3 memory lapse

Game 2:He gets early beats and smashes my face before i can get going

Game 3:He again is smashing my face early then i wrath and drop enforcer with threshold and im at 5 he firebolts me to bring me to 3 and i hit him with enforcer to bring him to 12 i persuasion a mongrel i mise the absorb during that turn and he attempts to rage me but i absorb it and kill him with enforcer and discard my hand to mongrel for 12 damage.

Matches:3-0 Games:6-2

Round 4 Feature Match:Will Johnson R/B

Game 1:This deck is pretty savage and he duresses me twice drops some shades and kills me.

+3 Persuasion,-3 Memory Lapse

Game 2:I dont have a great draw but i keep he probably wouldve smashed me cept he had dropped two cards and was playing a 58 card deck and i get the win

Game 3:He mulls down to 6 and I wrath away his creatures and drop an enforcer for the win.

Matches:4-0 Games:8-3

Round 5:Tim R/W Tie

Round 6:Christian Tie

after the longest two hours of my life my friend plays that joe kid and it shouldve been a tie but my friend mike just says he can have the win and that would allow that joe kid to make the top 8 and it kicked my friend out of the top eight.
