Short report. T3 lists will follow

12 14 players

1st UB Control (with heavy artifact ramp and counters)
2nd Mono R Goblins
3rd 4C Scapeshift

It seems that there is less good stuff in the last months. This time I saw:

2 RDW
1 Goblins
1 UB Ramp Control
1 Scapeshift
1 BUG Aggro
1 Cephalid Breakfast
1 Naya
1 GWRu Goodstuff
1 5C Goodstuff
1 UWbg AggroControl(l?)
1 Reanimator
1 Boros
1 ?

I piloted 4c Scapeshift again, but in a modified, more Scapeshift concentrated version (decklist below).


Report:

which 1st round – RDW aka the coinflip matchup
I had discard for Blood Moon and small dorks/removal to buy enough time for Scapeshift in both games. In the second game he had Molten Rain and Pillage but no pressure.
1-0

2nd round - Naya
4th turn Inferno Titan on my side was enough in the first and one attack with a 10/1 inkmoth nexus in the second.
2-0

3rd round – Goblins
He started in the first game which is difficult enough but had also Wasteland to steal a turn which was enough as my Pernicious Deed was slowed down. In the second game I had Inquisition for Blood Moon but he kept Goblin Ruinblaster which came into play just before I could Scapeshift for 21. Three turns later I still had not value or land so I had to Scapeshift for 18 for his board but he killed me next turn with a Ball Lightning. I usually value this matchup better than the RDW one as I can use my mass removal spells with much more value here but hey, no matchup is an autowin.
2-1

4th round – BUG Aggro
It was time for revenge (see last report)
I burned all of his card advantage guys and scapeshifted a couple of turns later after knowing his hand in game 1 and 3 with loosing against Wasteland+Loam in the 2nd game.  If you have the right set up of burn/discard-counter/ramp the matchup CAN be a walk in the park.
3-1

5th round – UB Control
UB is usually already difficult because they have counter and discard which both hurts. His version was very different to the ones I know as he had a very small removal suite and ALOT more counters as I expected. I saw Dissipate, Forbid, Syncopate, Spell Pierce, Countersquall in addition to the standard ones. It seems he dodged all creature strategies today...

Game 1 – Thanks for tapping out with me having 8 mana in play...
Game 2 – after fishing about 7-8! counterspells out of his hand (mostly with Volrath´s Stronghold) I was killed from a man land with having a tutor for Scapeshift and sorcery speed removal on my hand and him out of countermagic.
Game 3 – Three turns is not enough for either deck
3-1-1


My decklist:

I put a small burn package back in the deck and dropped some bigger spells for card draw as I had the feeling that some of the bigger spells were not always game winning while Scapeshift would have been good game immediately. There are a lot of cards going in an out for testing purposes but this is what I played yesterday:

If I remember correctly we were 14 players.

Also, the following decks were played:
  • 1 5C GoodStuff (played by me)
  • 1 UWbg AggroControll
  • 1 Boros

Report:

Round 1 – Boros
I won the first game with Bribery on Baneslayer Angel. In the second game he had too much to handle. And surprisingly there was no time to finish the third match.
0-0-1

Round 2 – 4C GoodStuff
Two very good (at least I think so) and very interesting games of magic. The first one was really close. In the end a Parallax Wave in combination with Edric, Spymaster of Trest won the game allowing me to draw five cards. The second game was ended in the extra turns.
1-0-1

Round 3 – UB Control
I don’t know what hit me but it hit me hard. In both games I wasn’t able to put a food on the ground. My draw was mediocre but I don’t want to blame it Wink all in all I had no chance.
1-1-1

Round 4 – Reanimator
I lost the first game quite quick, but the second game was won with Bribery on Iona, Shield of Emeria. I lost the last game because of one very stupid misplay, but this is how it works.
1-2-1

Round 5 – RDW
I was prepared for an aggressive meta, so this was winnable. In the end I had enough lifegain to survive the early rounds and strike back. In the second game I was able to gain more 20 life.
2-2-1

All in all it has been a very nice day. The atmosphere (at least between the Highlander Players) was very nice. I really liked it. The room was bright, not stuffy and the price support is not that bad. I hope I’ll be able to attend next time again.

You remember correctly, there were 14 players.

Like in the last months, i played Angry Hermit/Cephalid Breakfast and finished 5th.

Round 1 5c Good Stuf (i think)

My opponent kept slow hands without much disruption, i had all the things i needed in discards, combo-parts and counterspells.

Round 2 UB Control

The first game we played, my opponent played a Grindstone on turn 3, which surprised me. But after he admitted to have asked a judge before the tournament i played on. He won the game with a painter next round. After this game, i nevertheless called a judge, who confirmed that the grindstone is still banned. So the game was canceled and we started a new game one - because of my late call this was the right decision i think. So game 1 i had to fight through a wall of counterspells and removal, but he did not have any graveyard-hate or discard in his deck, so i still had chances. But after the third planeswalker (Tezzeret, Liliana, Jace) resolved, i had to concede. Game 2 i had combo plus Pact of Negation in turn 4. Game 3 he stripped the cephalid from my hand with Vendilion Clique when i was ready to go of and in the following 6 turns till the Clique finished me off, all i drew was lands.

Round 3 Mono-R

Game 1 he kept two lands and a Blood Moon and never drew the third land. For his Seal of Fire i hade bounce and could go off smoothly. Game 2 i had two counterspells to his two burnspells for Hermit Druid.

Round 4 4c Good Stuff

Here i just remember game 3, in which he tapped out for Elspeth to fasten his clock, with snapcaster for StP in hand. I drew the fourth mana source and happily won the match.

Round 5 Mono-R

Game one he was debating whether to use Seal of Fire for my Fyndhorn Elves in turn 1, which he finally did. I never drew another land to the three in my opener and wasn't able to win fast enough. Game 2 i saw a hand of lands, Warren Instigator, Kiki-Jiki and Siege-Gang Commander with a discard spell. I stripped the instigator and felt pretty save for turn 4 combo with Force in hand. But on his turn 3 he drew Magus of the Moon which he played through a Cavern of Souls for the win.

Again it was a very nice tournament, although it could still be some more players participating. This time i didn't like the price support so much, but that's just my opinion. Hopefully we can get to 20 players next time with all the small reports written here. A link to the tournament in the tournament section on the front page would certainly help, too.  Wink
