Just thought I would throw this out there to have everyone share any stories about EDH for plays or wins that went particularly well for you. I for one wanted to share a funny win I managed with a R/W war themed deck lead by Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran where I had managed to have him in play sporting Inquisitor's Flail , Grappling Hook and a Darksteel Axe as well as my Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer wielding my Sunforger for those who don't feel like doing the math Agrus swings for 10 deals 20/hit and hits twice! I had exactly left over and was able to pay for the ability of Sunforger and with it, I pulled a Master Warcraft out of my deck and had Agrus go unblocked for a 1 shot!
It was my first game of EDH and it was quite the attack and I thought there has to be a ton of great stories out there that people would like to share about their EDH games and I'd love to hear em.
Well, this happened recently:Spoiler: Show
This happened in my Kemba deck when she was the target of my own Redirect ed Oblation . So then, my opponent's Sheoldred, Whispering One backfired on him, allowing me to repeatedly sac my Stoneforge Mystic and keep resurrecting her with the Titan. He was one badass giant, and he won the game for me when I was on the brink of losing..
Any time I genesis wave and hit a recursive creature like eternal witness to get back the genesis wave I feel like things went well.
Or any time I land citadel of pain. Its all downhill from there.
Ok... serious story... playing damia. Drew into ashnods altar and played my puppeteer clique early for the sake of allowing my opponents a chance to kill it off before I combo'd. No one does. I land the altar and woodfall primus who bites it once before I draw and play the nim deathmantle. One of my opponents bins the primus in response to the mantle... I'm a little despondent until I realize that there's a karmic guide in another graveyard... and so puppeteer clique saves the day!
I resolved a decree of annihilation in my jhoira of the ghitu deck and recovered!
To make the joke serious, I had rhystic study out when the bomb dropped, practically drew into 5 lands and sol ring . I had a mindmoil out because I'm experimenting the fork out of that card, and I had a pathrazer suspended. In one play, I got shivan sandmage and fury charm , got pathrazer of ulamog out the turn after I had suspended him, suited him up with some boots of running really fast and just won right there, because what're you gonna do about it?
Playing my Radha, Heir to Keld timmy deck, I got out a few of my land fetch garbage critters like Sylvan Ranger . Then came Predator Ooze , which didn't do much. Then came Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , which met the business end of an Oblivion Ring . Then I cast Eldrazi Conscription on the Predator Ooze. The Ooze promptly got itself put under Arrest . Next turn, I cast Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre . He is placed in a Cage of Hands .
The next turn I cast Craterhoof Behemoth and all my little land fetch turds trampled for the win against three players.
It's a timmy deck and all that, but.....never again will I draw the that horrid combo of Ooze, Conscription, Ulamog, and Kozilek. It was just crazy.
Thats Awesome, Im sure every enchanment played by your opponents gave them that sense of security that lasted all the way up till your next play lol
Friend used praetor's grasp to take glen elendra archmage (bad choice against animar, but he really wanted to win counter wars and/or have resilient blocker for animar I guess.)
Had venser and sage of fables in my hand. I think he regretted playing that archmage.
Earlier in the week we were playing throne magic. It's a great variant, google it if you have a decent sized playgroup that likes MP. Someone else was playing my commander deck, and I was playing another guys eldrazi modern deck. I get big E out just as my teammate (roles are hidden so I didn't know it and he actually had been attacking me) dies. I have to start somewhere and swing with him at the guy playing my deck first. He has some lands, wood elves and kiki out (I o-stoned off of an ancient stirrings earlier.) he dies and the top card of the deck was zealous conscripts... Whew.
Was a bit cruel, but in a game with a buddy earlier I walked around his creatures with Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran for the win with Rogue's Passage . I forget exactly what did it but an effect he had used tossed the top card of his deck earlier on, it being a Savage Twister his means of stoping Kos were gone. I would've felt worse about it if he had not, in the previous game, sent both my commander and my means of shuffling the deck to the bottom of my deck.
Playing a friend's Ghave, Guru of Spores Melira combo deck, because I didn't have my decks on me. I kept a hand that didn't do anything special, but had a Strangleroot to go with Ghave. Then I drew into Altar of Dementia and Karmic Guide but had no graveyard yet. I milled myself for 2 with the Strangleroot/Altar, and found a Woodfall Primus . Before my next turn, someone cast a board wipe and I was left with only the Primus.
Luckily I still had Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in hand to get infinite mill the next turn.
I'd still rather have another scarecrow and copy it five times, but some folks like not keeping good creatures for some reason, I guess...
Well I would imagine Reaper King is the Commander there, so you can always just cast him again. After destrying 25 permanents in one shot.
Three weeks ago I had a game with my Asmira, Holy avenger deck. My friend played a hunted phantasm , giving me the five goblins on ETB trigger and then swings with an army of 2/2s. The 5 goblins, my five land (3 , 2 ) and convoke let me resolve an instant speed Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite with a Chord of Calling . His expression was priceless, somewhere between OMG and WTF.
Pulling out a Havoc Festival with a Furnace of rath is always fun.
In a different game, once I got into a counterspell war after casting Omniscience . I was fully expecting it also (Everyone was playing blue), as three counterspell were cast against me. Somehow, I managed to deflect them all, then went with Teferi, followed by Equilibrium / Coiling Oracle / Laboratory maniac for the win.
Another game, playing my elf deck, one of the other players pulled a card allowing me to draw a total of about 14 cards..... giving 14 cards to the player with Rofellos, llanowar Emissary on the field... I proceeded to cast Altar of Dementia , Kicked a Joraga warcaller , played off a Slate of Ancestry , and then asked.... How many cards are left in your deck?
I've been off the site for a few days glad to see a few more posts upon my return looks like a lot of interesting games. Gisela is awesome just got my hands on her now I've got my eye on that war angel in Gatecrash
Have yet to see a angel aside Maelstrom, Gabriel and Sigarda (and empyrial, apparently... AND Jenara O_O... OH AND Stoic...). Why don't they just print a mono-green angel?
Umpteenth Edit - Mind you they could print a mono-blue angel as well..
Yeah I was going to suggest the False God, he would make things interesting to say the least.
I've had some cool things happen when a mass wipe (eg: decree of annihilation ) resolves and some O-ringed something powerful owned.
Also, had one funny surprise a while ago...I won a game because my last remaining opponent didn't notice that blade splicer gives sundering titan first strike. The funny part is that I didn't notice either - we actually played out the combat phase both thinking he'd trample over sunders for the win, until an observer pointed out the error of our ways
Coulda been topical as well, everyone here is a devil's advocate anyways.
I have two from tonight.
So, first I was playing with Savra, Queen of the golgari . It's a b/g reanimator. I turn one land, sol ring, skullclamp , turn two Jarad's orders for a bloodghast . Suddenly all of my lands read ''Enters the battlefield tapped and when this land enters the battlefield, draw two cards." After a while of that, I get a lord of extinction out as a 20/20, then disciple of bolas it for 20. Discard huge. Next turn, reanimate the Lord who's now a 42/42 or something, a terastodon and some other unfair stuff and I was just like lolyup that's how I do it. I had 37 cards left in my library by that time.
Next, I was playing with my Wrexial deck. I was playing against a rakdos, lord of riots deck demon tribal coolstuff deck. So I start the game with a sygg, river cutthroat and a hypnotic specter for early pressure. By sometime around whenever, I get a sphinx ambassador out and it lives. I swing next turn after tutoring up a bribery with my liliana vess . Now, everytime I get the chance with my friend to take crap out of his deck, I take his demon of death's gate because it's super powerful flying evasion doesn't take shirt from no one card. So I knew he was gonna say "Demon of death's gate" When I hit him with the sphinx. So I choose Kuro, pitlord , his other don't take shirt from no one card. Then I bribery his demon of death's gate. Then we sat in a hottub. It was a fun night.
I bonded a Snapcaster Mage with a Deadeye Navigator in my Sygg, River Cutthroat deck. Giving stuff flashback is fun :D
At our local PTQ (which I did horribly at, my limited deckbuilding skills are poo) we had EDH side tournaments. I did not win either of them, but I did get Deadeye Navigator and Draining Whelk in the first and Mana Drain ed a Gilded Lotus in the second game on opponent's turn three to put out a Rasputin Dreamweaver , Steel Hellkite and a Sword of Fire and Ice on my third turn.
Was playing my Niv-Mizzet deck today, and had a slow start even though Howling Mine came out turn 2. After I finally got Niv out, I cast Consecrated Sphinx , and looked over my 12 card hand( Reliquary Tower ) as to what I could do. One metalcraft triggered Molten Psyche later, I had two dead opponents.
After playing my friends niv mizzet I was the official wearer of the cheese hat.
I drew both kiki jiki and splinter twin with zealous conscripts and pestermite already on board. I also had greaves and a recently added drift of phantasms ... there was no way anyone was stopping me from getting a combo through.
Felt sorta bad that game. Reminded me of why I switched to dracogenius for my own UR deck.
I had Glissa, the Traitor equipped with Batterskull , Sword of War and Peace , and Umezawa's Jitte . I also had an Executioner's Capsule , a Forbidden Orchard - Masticore combo to revive any other artifacts, and Trading Post to do all kinds of things (but mostly draw cards).
In the end I lost that game to infinite squirrel tokens, mainly because I wasn't thinking to pay all that life from giant lifelink Glissa to keep the extra draws from my Sylvan Library just to see more cards. I found an Abrupt Decay the turn after the squirrel combo came down.
Yesterday, I had a 49/49 Hamletback Goliath . Unfortunately, I had no way to give him trample, and my opponents could just chump it. A board wipe followed, and I was sad. Note to self, find a way to give all your creatures trample in your Rith deck.
Played last week against a Glissa, the Traitor deck and Isperia, Supreme Judge with my Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind . While things didn't go as retardedly OP as they did in my last post, I still came up aces on stopping some stuff. Particularly, my Glissa friend was using Liliana Vess to tutor stuff while I had a Trickbind in my hand. While I was tempted to deny him a tutor at some point, I kept abstaining. Good thing too.
In comes O-stone .
Needless to say, my Trickbind knew where to go when I cast it. Thank gawd I had it in my deck, that's for sure...
Recently played a buddy who was running an Animar, soul of elements . I was using Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran (its always Kos) got my Preeminent Captain out real early, his first friend out of the gate was Burrenton Shield-Bearers to ensure his safety on swings. He was swinging away with a Loxodon Warhammer I had Slayers' Stronghold and was just using it to further pump the captain amazingly enough I didnt get much resistance from animar as my buddy ended up with all the wrong color lands so what he was able to play just got a taste of steel. turn 8 Razia, Boros Archangel joined the party followed by Kos and the stronghold (giving em haste) for one last sweep of morale busting horribleness dropping a Captain of the Watch with Preeminent Captain his flavor text is all too true *new favorite card
Just built Seton, Krosan Protector , managed to draw concessions from my two friends when I tapped seven untapped druids and started stealing people's lands.
Yesterday, my group and I were playing Planechase. I was third in the turn order, and thanks to The Maelstrom , I got a turn one Kozilek, Butcher of Truth . I felt really bad about it. I didn't attack for the first few rounds, and almost considered attacking into an opponent just so she could Soul Snare Kozilek.
