12 players   Sad

We had about 35°C, so possibly some guys choose the swimming pool instead of a sticky room with +100 sweaty (not sweety!) guys but I think declining numbers of tournament players is still the trend in my area which I have to accept.

1st   Patrick Richter - Team America
2nd   Mathias von der Heyde – 4C Goodstuff
3rd Jonas Grohmann - Cephalid Breakfast

Unfortunately I had no time to collect the decklists, but will contact the organizer and hand them in later.

I piloted 4c Scapeshift against the expected field of Goodstuff decks. My expectations were met (approx. half of the field) but I only faced one of them and lost   Cry
Just before the tournament I removed most of my burn package for more brokenness which was a very BAD idea in the end. Proud 2-3 finish in the end. Time for some whining and bad beats:

1st round – UG with r splash (I think)
I ramped up to 7-8 lands and overloaded him with must counter spells in both games.
1-0
Games in which more burn would have been awesome: 1of2

2nd round - Cephalid Breakfast aka the unwinnable matchup
I had lucky draws in both games (1st turn discard plus some creature removal spells) and scapeshifted both games just in time. Win, but I had used up my luck with this.
2-0
Games in which more burn would have been awesome: 3of4

3rd round – Team America aka the unwinnable matchup part 2
First game was a grind but he had Dark Confidant to win it. I had the two chances for a topdeck to steal the game but missed.
The second game was a massacre. I had to mull to 6 which is already nearly good game in this grinding matchup but got punished even more from an 2nd turn Dimir Cutpurse Shocked
No chance here, as expected.
2-1
Games in which more burn would have been awesome: 5of6

4th round – 4C goodstuff - YEAH, here we go!
Game 1 - I was dead on turn 4 with a flying 5/5 Mirran Crusader attacking me on turn 3 and 4 while my two green dorks stalling the ground…
Game 2 – Stoneforge Mystic into Sword of Feast and Famine plus another Mirran Crusader was good game again. But this time I had enough lands and time to find one of my +15 I win cards in my Sylvan Library which I reshuffled every turn but missed them all.  Angry
2-2
Games in which more burn would have been awesome: 7of8

5th round – RDW
I won the die roll in this coinflip matchup which made me quite confident for a positive end result
Game 1 – Taking his 1st turn thread and a turn 4 Inferno Titan was too much for him
Game 2 – 2nd turn Ankh of Mishra! Was too much for me  Shocked
Game 3 – Thragtusk is much weaker with a Sulfuric Vortex in play… I the end I lost because I had to deal 1 damage to myself by a fetchland, so he finished me off right in time before I could Scapeshift.
2-3
Games in which more burn would have been awesome: 8of11

Scapeshift ist certainly not a Tier1 strategy but can be a strong contender and a good choice against a metagame which does not have a lot of counters and fast combo.

Decklists will follow.

I like the decision to play scapeshift even in a goodstuff meta like yours. I think the burn is essential to stand against this 4/5c madness and dont lose against the t1 noble hierarch into gg no re.

Nice report, thanks a lot.


I think you shouldn't worry about the number of participants. 12 players at a new location during the arguably hottest day of this year so far is pretty good. In addition, it's vacation time and examination time at several near and big universites.
