Volume I

Final Standings after 4 rounds

1. UW Fish 10 Pt (Vazdru)
2. Oath 9 Pt (Sturmgott)
3. Tokenmania 8 Pt (Fips)
4. RG-Beatz 6 Pt (Christian)
5. RDW 6 Pt (Dan)
6. Oath 5 Pt (Tobi)
7. Survival 4 Pt (spirit of the wretch)
8. Survival 3 Pt (Manu)
9. RDW 3 Pt (Jens)

1st match vs. Sturmgott with Oath
It's of course a good match-up for me and i tell you no secret when i say the key to win is simple:
Back to Basics. It makes it even easier if you are having some counter-backup.
But you also have some kind of "Plan B"  Wink - Winter Orb or Armageddon rather bounce or control are some strong weapons too.

2-0

2nd match vs Fips with Tokenmania
I'm usually chanceless vs his deck - specially if i just find one land in my first 13 cards. Fortunately he did the same :-) Our decks are like fire (Tokenmania) and oil (Fish) - i do not have a chance to contain it. This time it worked - i survived a long time and lost game 1. Game 2 my bounce + fliers gave me enough tempo to win. Finally i played Sigil of Distinction for the win. Game 3 time-out (lucky me  Roll Eyes)

1-1

3rd match vs Christina with RG-Beatz
He played Vexing Susher and I've had 3 Counter-Spells so the end was clear and came fast. Game 2 he kept a 2-Land-Hand (1 nonbasic) - I've played Aether Vial and b2b and had a huge speed-advantage. Game 3 I've played Visions Turn1 and Cloudskate Turn2 - as i survived Turn 4 although he had River Boa + Sword of Fire and Ice (thanks to Bounce, Condemn) my card-advantage was enough to win this time.

2-1

4th match vs Tobi with Oath
He started with Mox + Fetch + LFTL  Roll Eyes Back to Basics destroyed quickly his dream he could have a chance Grin. As he handled b2b after a while i just dropped Winter Orb  Tongue Second game Land Tax Turn1 and Enlightened in midgame for.....yes of course b2b won me the game.

2-0

Careful: because of this, you just may have gotten BtB banned and Orb + Armageddon on the watchlist...

Thanks for the report anyway!

Volume II

Final standings after 3 rounds

1. Survival-Reveillark 9 Pts (Dan)
2. UGW-Oath 6 Pts (Vazdru) - loss vs Dan
3. UG-AggroControl 6 Pts (spirit of the wretch) - loss vs Dan
4. UGW-Control 3 Pts (Christian)
5. WW 3 Pts (Sturmgott)
6. Rogue-Combo 0 Pts (Jens)


1st match vs Dan with Reveillark

First game was kind of close.
He went in aggro mode with Deranged Hermit -> I played Tabernacle. In his next upkeep he played Tainted Pact to find Wasteland after ~ 60 cards and got rid of that nasty land. I played Oath which met Krosan Grip. I played Moat. Primal Command put Moat on top of my library and afterwards i've had to shuffle gy->lib + alpha strike for the win next turn. He had ~ 10 cards left in his lib.

Second game he had an early Survival. I removed his gy twice with Tormod's Crypt to lose vs Body Double which copied Hellkite Overlord in my own gy Roll Eyes

to be continued...

No i haven't  Huh but i would have if there was a sign from above finding a copy in one of my boosters  Grin

2nd match vs Sturmgott's WW

First one was close. I managed to stay alive with Explosives and Tabernacle. Although he almost got me - surving with 2 LP, Akroma and Oath on the table. He was tapped out and Hellkite made the deal.

Second one was fast and easy starting with Oath and Moment's Peace.

2:0

3rd match vs Christian's UGW

Intuition for Life-from-the-Loam-Engine which he has never stopped. A cruel death came slowly but quite effectivly. Future Sight and lots of othe goodies vs 3 lands on the other side.

No time for the second one...

1:0

Dan (Florea) didn't only win 3 of our last 5 TNM Tournaments and made 9th on the last HL GP but he is also on fire in Honolulu  Grin:

The hl community -especially the guys from Karlsruhe- is crossing fingers for our HL dude staying on top in day II.
