Thanks everybody for playing. It was long, and I apreciate all of you seeing it through to the end. I had alot of fun, and all of you are fantastic players. It was an honor. Thank you for being patient with me through all of my mistakes, and mis-haps.
Good-luck in future games!
Thanks Aaron and Crysus! Tourney was really great and I second it was filled with a lot of skilled players. Crysus gave me an intense fight and especially our games 1-3 were really close and well played and worth sharing. Here’s the rundown.
Fma vs. Crysus 3-1
Sepulchral Strength vs. Collective Might 1-0
Crysus started attacking and I double-blocked his Wilt-Leaf Liege with 2 trolls only to see it returning to the battlefield after a kicked Marshal's Anthem . I played Pernicious Deed and got down to 2 life, when a Pelakka Wurm . gave me some life. The battlefield was his Liege + Loxodan Hierarch + Liege against my wurm + Drana when I popped Deed for 5 and had an open field for my Pelakka. I played another Pelakka which got exiled and Crysus followed with 2 spirit tokens and Photohydra . I kept attacking with my lone Pelakka, luckily survived an Overrun next turn with 3 life left and got the win.
Obedient Dead vs. Dream Puppets 2-0
We were both mana flooded and besides some mill spells the field didn’t see much action at first. Crysus tapped down my Massacre Wurm and countered some creatures. I was able to tutor for Mire's Toll and resolved a Grave Titan . With an body doubled Massacre Wurm Crysus got rid of my tokens and bounced my titan. I killed the wurm and recast the titan when Crysus played Chancellor of the Spires into Rise from the Grave into Body Double for my Rune-Scarred Demon which blocked my titan next turn. With another Counterspell Crysus saved his Chancellor from my kill spell, but Corrupt brought him down 1 life and he couldn’t stop another attack from my zombie token.
Dream Puppets vs. Sepulchral Strength 2-1
After an early Traumatize chances were good for a mill victory, but I was missing more mill spells… I could tap down a 32/32 Sewer Nemesis and clone it, but mine got killed immediately. Thanks to a Clone and a Body Double I could bring down 4 Chancellors in a row the next 4 turns and use Crysus’ own sacrifice spells to clear the field. Unfortunately he had Master of the Wild Hunt and could sacrifice tokens and thanks to Ascetism I couldn’t use his target kill spells. Crysus killed my first Chancellor right away and used Damnation after the third, so I went for a discard spell with my 4th Chancellor and cleared his hand. With a flier on the empty field and Crysus top-decking victory was near, but his next card was a 52/52 Lord of Extinction . Thanks to Ascetism I couldn’t use my tap and bounce spells and lost to a single attack.
Celestial Light vs. Born of Flame 3-1
Crysus dealt with my Pridemate, Rhox Faithmender and first Baneslayer Angel , but I top-decked another one. Thanks to Recumbent Bliss and Swords to Plowshares I could deal with his Phoenixes and finished the game around 45 life.
