Correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't the second game have ultimately gone to "Tokens of Rage"? I find it difficult to believe it would miss 20+ Soul Warden triggers, but stranger things have happened.
I think a Soltari Trooper could overcome a single Soul Warden, but not a 1 power creature.
Still wondering why mike tests the decks he creates against himself. I mean, it's always useful to know how you'll do in the mirror, but wouldn't testing in some mol room make for more interesting matchups?
