more like its every time i get into an event, if i play UW midrange, i face all the guys with caverns, if i play bant, i play the guy with mill or i get mana screwed 2 or 3 games in a row against aggro, if i play PWs control, i face mono counterspells, if i play a creature deck, i face nothing but mono removal decks.

for me, it's become a chronic pattern of me facing my worst matchups or situations.  i was trying to hold out as long as possible when it came to b*tching, but after losing in this fashion about a dozen events in a row, i'm just getting very tired

Sounds a bit like my event history.  I always seem to get stuck with my worst match up round 1.  This sets me up for an up hill battle the rest of the day, and I usually face some stupid fringe deck in round 2 which either sets me up for a nice streak before my deck falls on it's face VS my ideal match up, or I just don't recover. 

Worst record is 0-3 drop, best is 4-3 drop.

That's why I'm considering not going to any big event unless it's Legacy.  At least that way I can play my beloved Zoo deck, and I can usually nom-nom through most control players.  And I always can have fun in Aggro match ups through a bloody war of trading dudes and removal spells.

Of course, it generally helps when I go (which is rare now), I rarely suffer alone.

Best advice I can give you is to pick one deck you like and stick with it.  Tune it as best as you can, and become the best pilot with it that you can. The meta is more open than it has been in years, you're going to have to dodge archetypes, there's no deck that you can crutch on that lets you coinflip with the expected meta.
Sleeve up mouth breathing aggro. Turn dudes sideways. Enjoy not really worrying about matchups.

No, he should take it one step further.  Burn.  If the Bant Match up can be solved (or the Game 2/3 problem really) it could be a possible meta deck.  No real thinking other than if you can out race them with your burn.

No one would expect it from him either.

You can't have the worst luck, because I hold that title.

I played a respectible Bant at FNM. I crushed Jund, GW, and other decent decks. You know what I lost to? Door to Nothingness! Seriously and at 0-2. I had THE WORST draws you can imagine. My opening /mulligans were fine. Seriously, everything I pulled from there was at the wrong time. It was like I was playing the deck in reverse.

Oh I bet, I would have done the same in your situation.

i just entered an 8-man.....

i face a guy playing the EXACT SAME GODDAM DECK BUT HAPPENS TO HAVE MORE COUTNERS AND DURESS AND CRAP!!!!!!!

Unofrtunately when luck is involved, things can be bad.

Last week both matches I lost were due to mana issues. First, too much land (I only run 21 lands). Next match, zero land.

ur not funny
Real men hold shift. If everyone has their fingers in the pie, then someone is eating fingers.
I know the feeling. I play B/R Zombies and I have faced a G/W Aggro/Midrange deck to start an event the past 4 times I've played. Sometimes there is only one guy in the room running it, but he always gets matched up with me. Sometimes you get beat by bad draws and sometimes you get beat by a computer. 
for me, it seems sometimes is replaced by frequently

that being said, for anyone with insight, how are you guys breaking the thragtusk standoffs.  maybe more specifically, the thrag + fattie like AoS mirrors?

Learn to stop tilting which will make you a better player. 
luls, I play a passive control deck and round one get paired with Conjurer's Closet/Acidic Slime round 1 for 2 FNMs in a row (seriously, I'm going to start playing Nevermore)- where said opponent draws Cavern of Souls naming Ooze every time every effing game. I then get paired up in round 2 of last week with a terrible Delver list and get rolled because I only get to draw 3 of my 28 land (plus 2 Mana Blooms) for 2 consecutive games. I got so pissed off that I spent the rest of the night destroying my other 3 rounds with Sands of Delirium in lieu of any other win-condition, just to make them flip ****.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilt_(poker)



in game, i'm not tilting.  but i'm not going to ignore losing dozens of matches.  we all have bad luck, but i'm expressing frustration for when it happens over and over. 

i mean, seriously.... who expects to face a mirror match for a very, very obscure decklist and he happens to hit all the cards that make the deck good in the mirror and i hit zero in any games? 

i "tilt" when i feel justified.  it's been quite some time since i've had one of my signature rants

Play better. Its obviously the only solution.

(at)MrEnglish22

You run hot and you run cold. It's part of playing card games. 

And yeah, get better. If you're complaining about "luck" then you're probably not spending the time to improve your game.

my hot and cold seems to be very set oriented.

Maybe it has something to do with the type of decks you're at playing. Or maybe it's because you'll run really hot and then get burned out and run really cold. Nobody plays great all the time except for the best. It's easy to get frustrated but maybe take it as lessons to learning what you need to do to become a better player. 
I dunno I mean I've been there. I swear sometimes I defy the odds in the other way around. Back during 5color control and everyone was running decks almost half lands. I would mulligan down to 4 before finding a single land. Than, the next round the same thing would happen. I'd go on to get beat by Johnny McNoob with his pre-con deck.

I was playing a guy a couple of weeks ago. I was on 4c Rites and he was playing UW Skies. He sided in like 3 Rest in Peace. He went on to put them in the deck in varying places and pile shuffled. He dug for them all game long. At the end of the match ALL 3 were stuck together one after the other as the very last 3 cards of the library.

I remember at the height of UB control (worlds 2010 era), i could outplay the mirror match with... probably a 90% success rate.  while i know i'm not by any means the best player and i certainly have improving i can always do, i know i'm not such a bad player as to lose at the rate i have been.

i must just not be getting something....

You're playing the same style of deck no matter how good it is in the meta. There's your problem.

Try playing GW, or the UW "flash" deck. 

(at)MrEnglish22

i'm not much for GW, but i do regularly play UW flash.  i always find the people with caverns, which is why i think the deck, while very good, was only going to live for a short time.  caverns are easily "splashed" in almost any deck with creatures.

I hardly think Gatecrash will allow people to play whatever colors they please. Sure every combination will be feasible, but they won't all be viable. Plus there are those among us that prefer mono-color builds. Super-duper-manafixing isn't going to please everyone.

That said, I'm not entirely sure what B_F's preferences are, so you might be totally correct here.
