Match 2: He got a good start and started nailing me down. He then plays Kycoo and says 1800 and i was at 2200. He goes wait i call that back its under 10 seconds and plays goblin attack force. he then continues and shuffles his deck. I say im not letting u call that back and called a judge over. after like 10 min of arguing on his part. the head judge says we have to play match 2 over.
