    Heart of the Storm - 1st @ Gents Club

    Here's a lil' report from a wednesday evening exclusive participation spellslingers called the "gents club". Because it was a very familiar round and we had no time limit or such, which let me take down detailed notes. A special thanks 4 the patience at this point :D. I doubt, the info I can provide contains real value, because I feel none of the deck was real fine-tuned for a tournament Ö No gent takes a gun to a knife-fight Ö

    4 Gemstone Mine
    2 City of Brass
    2 Underground Sea
    1 Volcanic Island
    3 Polluted Delta

    3 Chrome Mox
    4 Lotus Petal
    4 Lionís Eye Diamond
    4 Dark Ritual
    4 Rite of Flame
    4 Burning Wish
    4 Infernal Tutor
    4 Brainstorm
    4 Ponder
    4 Gitaxian Probe
    4 Silence
    3 Duress
    1 Empty the Warrens
    1 Ad Nauseam

    3 Abrupt Decay
    2 Chain of Vapor
    2 Xantid Swarm
    2 Cabal Therapy
    1 Grapeshot
    1 Empty the Warrens
    1 Tendrils of Agony
    1 Bribery
    1 Past in Flames
    1 Diminishing Returns


    Erm Ö well Ö yeah. The field proved VERY diverse, because we all had chatter the week before, which decks to bring. We cut all the fun&casual decks Ö didnít help to build sideboards at all. Maybe I can get hands on the ďlistsĒ because no one wrote one for this meeting. I really appreciated the exclusive location with Bourbon and Co. over the average gameshop and noisy kids.

    Round 1 Ė NicFit

    Game 1


    As usual I begin a tounament with loosing the dice roll. I fan an opening seven of the following:

    Polluted Delta
    Lotus Petal
    Lotus Petal
    Duress
    Burning Wish
    Gitaxian Probe
    Gitaxian Probe

    Would you keep that hand?


    I hated this hand and Iím about to ship it immediately as my opponent shuffles for a fresh grip of 6. I try to evaluate the double probe on the draw plus 3 initial mana sources for an EtW out of my sideboard and decided to keep that. The Duress should clear the way in case of defense. To my relief, the mulligan to 6 wasnít the end. He kept 5 and opened with Forest for a Veteran Explorer Ö very revealing. Still have to figure out if itís Scapewish or Rector. He ships the turn and I draw another Wish. I fetch an Underground Sea and probe him, seeing Cabal Therapy and 2 Pernicious Deeds. Suddenly the EtW-plan lost itís appeal. The Probe gave me a Dark Ritual and I donít see a way the Duress has any value atm. I probe again, hoping for gas and find LED! I Play out all my mana and cast Wish, crack the LED and think about the color Ö remember my cutting of IGG? This one would come in handy but this way I have to go for blue and Diminishing Returns. I draw a fresh 7 with a single Black mana in my pool and 8 Storm. I removed a Petal and a LED among junk in my 10. My new 7 are:

    Underground Sea
    Lotus Petal
    Duress
    Infernal Tutor
    Dark Ritual
    Gitaxian Probe
    Brainstorm


    I Probe and see: Living Wish, Scavenging Ooze, IoK, IoK, Liliana of the Veil, Forest and Explorer . urg. At this point I realize that I just had shipped turns while he only had Explorer in play without a way to sacrifice it and gamble on him not drawing a black manasource. I draw a ponder off Probe and cast it. I brick on 2 Wishes + Infernal and shuffle Ö draw Ö EtW!. Cast Ritual, Petal, feel lucky as shit, make 26 dudes for the scoop.

    1-0

    Sideboarding: -4 Silence, -3 Duress, +2 Cabal Therapy, +3 Abrupt Decay, +2 Chain of Vapor


    Game 2

    He mulls and I feel really bad for him after game 1. My first 7 were 2 Probe, Rite of Flame, Brainstorm, Gemstone Mine, City of Brass and Cabal Therapy Ö just worse than my hand game 1 Ö like a dťjŗ-Vu. This time I join the shuffling. I end up with:

    Dark Ritual
    Dark Ritual
    Burning Wish
    LED
    Cabal Therapy
    Polluted Delta

    Would you keep that hand?


    Now thatís a good 6! He keeps 5 after another mulligan and I eat an Inquisition of Kozilek after he fetches for Bayou taking my Chris Moeller Ajani LED. A good choice. I draw and cast Ponder, shuffle, draw Therapy and pass. He plays Verdant Catacomb and cast Therapy off Bayou naming Dark Ritual and hit my 2-off. Iím in very bad shape now. I draw Underground Sea for the turn and think about, what to name with my Therapy. I choose GSZ and see Sylvan Library and Liliana of the Veil. I fire off my second for Library in fear of the cardadvantage it provides. He rips a swamp, cracks Catacomb and plays Liliana. The Lady in Black takes my Burning Wish and weíre both in topdeck mode. Fortunately I draw lands and an Infernal for LED while he canít apply pressure. I then topdeck brainstorm, find Wish and cast it to find Past in Flames which obviously gets discarded. The following turn I draw into Rite of Flame with 4 lands + LED online. I Flashback PIF over Rite (+Rite already in grave) and recast hellbent Infernal out of my graveyard for another LED after casting both Dark Rituals flashback, crack one LED for blue, flashback cantrips for stormcount, break the second LED and Wish for Tendrils.

    2-0

    Wow, my plain lack of practice strikes hard. The first game should have resulted in a loss for me. This 2-0 feels disgraceful but my pal is rather displeased with his deck. Iíve picked up my empty glas twice during the last game so I think itís time to order a new drink Ö for both of us .

    Round 2 Ė RUG Delver

    Game 1


    Yay! I know he loves control so anything without FoW is out of discussion. I Open with these 7 after winning the dice:

    City of Brass
    Gemstone Mine
    Duress
    Gitaxian Probe
    Brainstorm
    Lotus Petal
    Dark Ritual

    Would you keep that hand?


    Looks pretty solid. I probe him and see Brainstorm, Stifle, Burn and Beatz. Iím confused about this keep (He told me afterwards, he expected me playing my Stoneblade today), play City and think about duressing his Stifle or Brainstorm, ending up with stripping him off the poor manís Ancestral Recall. He plays Mongoose off Tropical. I Brainstorm into a fetch, ponder and a Burning Wish putting back 2 gemstones (I draw 1 for turn), Delta for Volcanic, Ponder, seeing Probe, Petal and LED. I take Probe with LED on top. He untaps, attacks and passes back. I draw LED for turn, Petal off Probe revealing a hilarious hand of Chain Lightning, 2 Tarmogoyfs and 3 .. in words Ö THREE Stifle. I play all my mana, cast Wish 4 Returns and this is my new 7:

    LED
    LED
    Petal
    Chrome Mox
    Rite of Flame
    Probe
    Infernal Tutor


    I probe and see brainstorm among crap. I draw Burning Wish, play out all my mana (imprint Rite of Flame into the Mox), Wish for Therapy and cast it. He responds with Brainstorm. Since I have more than enough mana for Daze, I name FoW and miss. Since heís tapped out, I can now cast Infernal into Wish into Tendrils off the 2 LEDís.

    3-0

    Sideboarding: - 1Infernal, + 1 Cabal Therapy


    Game 2

    I keep a hand with limitless potential naming:

    LED
    Infernal Tutor
    Rite of Flame
    Gemstone Mine
    Gitaxian Probe
    Brainstorm
    Silence

    Would you keep that hand?


    My heads aching bout the Gemstone as single initial manasource against wasteland. He opens with Tropical into Delver of Secrets. I draw Petal for turn, Probe and see Stifle and more pressure coming. The Dark Ritual I drew via Probe was golden: Gemstone for R, Rite of Flame, Petal for B, Dark Ritual, LED, Infernal Tutor, pop LED for BBBBRR in my pool. Iím @ 18 and grab Ad Nauseam leaving one Black open.

    Iíll shorten the report here and only say that I looped PIF for 72 Goblins on the field and ~40 Grapeshot copies on the stack.

    4-0

    This match was a lot better than the first. I feel that his keep in game 1 was VERY loose even if he didnít put me on TES. I feel confident now to take the crown with only one more round to play before the T4.

    Round 3 Ė The SneakShow

    Game 1


    We are all here for playing so, an ID is out of discussion. Iím pretty sure heís on Show & Tell at this point of our lilí tourney and I have to put both feet on the brake for boozing up if I want to continue playing at a decent level. We both keep our initial 7. I, for my part, am pleased with

    Gemstone Mine
    Gemstone Mine
    Volcanic Island
    Ponder
    Ponder
    Dark Ritual
    Burning Wish

    Would you keep that hand?


    ĎCause Fortuna blessed me tonight, I am able to start the game with Volcanic into Ponder, shuffle and draw Brainstorm. A mimicry gameplay on the other site of the table. I draw a Delta for the turn and try to Brainstorm Ö resolves. I find, Rite of Flame, Probe and Ritual, put back the gemstones, cast probe and see, Sneak Attack, Scalding Tarn, Ancient tomb, Ponder, Griselbrand, Intuition and FoW. I fetch an Underground sea and Ponder again. I Find Duress and think about keeping it to put a gun against my opponents head: Protecting his Sneak Attack or keep up Force. I take the Discard spell because I still have at least 1 more turn. As expected, he plays Tarn and ponders bevor passing back the turn. I draw Infernal, Play ritual, Duress and see he drew an additional sneak attack, I take his Force of Will. I still have an untapped Volcanic and BB in the pool. I cast Wish for Therapy and take both of his enchantments. He plays Ancient Tomb and passes. I know that he still has Intuition in his hand and have to pay attention. I play the drawn Petal and Wish for the second Therapy, because EtW is not an option. I strip the Intuition and see both Griselbrand and the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I have to pray for him drawing a blank. He plays land, go Ö phew! Even better: I draw a second Dark Ritual! Tap Volcanic for R, U.Sea for B, Rite of Flame, Dark Ritual, Dark Ritual, Infernal Tutor, Ad Nauseam off 17 life:

    Dark Ritual (16)
    Ponder (15)
    LED (15)
    Infernal Tutor (13)
    Lotus Petal (13)
    Silence (12)

    Polluted Delta (7)
    Gemstone Mine (7)
    Brainstorm (6)
    Rite of Flame (5)
    Underground Sea (5)
    Rite of Flame (4)


    I Probe him going to 2 life, seeing Griselbrand, City of Traitors and Emrakul. Petal, Petal, Chrome Mox (Duress), Ritual off Mox, Rite off Petal, Rite, Infernal for LED, play both Diamonds, Burning Wish, pop LEDís for RRRBBBBBUUU floating and 14 storm grabbin PIF from the SB and cast it, replay all rituals and Rites, Infernal for LED, Ponder, take LED and cast it, Ponder again, take Petal and cast it, Brainstorm into Infernal, infernal for EtW, Cabal Therapy takes Griselbrand, make 60 Goblins, become bored myself, Infernal flashbacked for Wish, pop LEDís, flashback PIF, flashback EtW, increase goblin-count to 126, cast Wish for ~40 grapeshizzzle.

    Sideboarding: canít remember

    5-0

    Game 2


    My fellow friend on the other site of the tables laughting about the goblins but canít distract me Ö heís pissed Ö his cards suffer riffle torture :/

    Gitaxian Probe
    Lotus Petal
    Rite of Flame
    Rite of Flame
    Dark Ritual
    Infernal Tutor
    Chrome Mox

    Would you keep that hand?


    Very nice Ö I have a draw step + probe to find a land or another petal for a turn 1 kill. He starts with Volcanic, go. I draw Volcanic, Probe and he responds with brainstorm. He reveals 2 Show and Tell, 2 Petal(?), Island, Spell Pierce and Ancient Tomb. As I think about his brainstorm and the petals I suspect a Griselbrand hidden on top of his deck but canít explain why heíd keep the petals in hand unless he drew both. This way Spell Pierce is turned off and I draw Brainstorm for the Probeís cantrip. I play Volcanic, Petal, sac petal to cast Dark Ritual, Volcanic for R, Rite, Rite, Chrome Mox (Brainstorm), Infernal for Ad Nauseam. At this point was VERY SAD not having the option to wish for Bribery in that matchup. I start flipping off 18 life and one red floatingÖ

    I stop here and continue playing. Petal, Chrome Mox (Infernal), Ritual off Mox, Brainstorm via Petal, find Rite + LED (put back lands), Rite, Infernal for LED, play all 3 Diamonds, Burning Wish, crack a LED for red and view my graveyard with 3 Rites, 2 Rituals, 2 Infernals and a Wish for shenanigans but in fear of bad karma, I just leach 36 live instead with Tendrils of Agony.

    6-0

    Iím pumped for making it into the semifinal undefeated despite my lack of practice. Iím even more excited to see my possible opponents while the rest of the players is going to play some boring Tempo/Control Mirrors for ďfunĒ now.

    Semifinal Ė UG 12-Post

    Game 1


    I saw him playing Venser and oblivion stone in one oft he rounds before so I expect this list being close to Jeremiah Rudolph's with SB Flusterstorms and Mindbreak Traps (+Chalice of the Void?). He doesnít seem too happy about that pairing, Stomping Stoneblade and RUG before as he told. Iím always a nervous freak while playing M:TG (bad idea if playing near always combo lol) and try to calm down via excessive shuffling. He winís the dice roll ( we donít use the play-draw-rule here). He keeps after a Mulligan but I feel my initial 7 are ok

    Gemstone Mine
    Gemstone Mine
    Infernal Tutor
    Duress
    Ponder
    Lotus Petal
    Dark Ritual

    Would you keep that hand?


    He starts the game with Cloudpost and ships back. I draw Rite for Turn and Ponder off Gemstone seeing Delta, LED and RoF. Take the Rite and float LED. He plays a Senseiís Divining Top and a Tropical before passing. I play Gemstone Mine, tap both for RB, cast Ritual and Duress, seeing the Prime Time off Show&Tell play he was setting up, taking the Show, Rite, Rite, Petal, LED, Infernal, pop LED for BBB, Ad Nauseam off 20 Life with RB floating and 7 storm

    I cast Chrome moxen (Probe, Duress), Dark Ritual, Dark Ritual, Rite, Rite, Braintorm off Chrome Mox (U.Sea, Infernal, Ponder), Infernal for an additional LED, play both Diamonds, make 36 Goblins due to my notes, Wish for Grapeshot (leaving him @ 1 life), Infernal, crack both remaining LEDís for RRRBBB, search for a Wish and cast it to grab Tendrils from the sideboard.

    7-0

    Sideboarding: -1 Duress, -1 Chrome Mox, +2 Xantids. Decide to gamble here on Chalice. I doubt he runs Chalice, Flusterstorm and MBT in one SB.

    Game 2


    He starts with a mulligan to 6 and I decide to keep my 7 of

    Silence
    Duress
    Lotus Petal
    Gemstone Mine
    Gemstone Mine
    Ponder
    Ponder

    Would you keep that hand?


    He starts with Island, SDT. Him starting with Island indicates my idea of sideboarding wasnít too bad. I draw Wish and Duress off Gemstone. Seeing, Spell Pierce, MBT and Prime Time. I take the Pierce while having at least 2 turns left for action. He spins the top in his upkeep and plays Misty Rainforest. I lay down the second Mine and Ponder, shuffle, draw Probe. He spins in his upkeep again and plays forest,go. I draw another Silence, Probe him (no news here), draw Xantid Swarm and cast the second Ponder seeing Gemstone, LED, Ad Nauseam. I take the Gemstone and cast the Insect. He continues playing Lands and passes back shaking his head over the Swarm. I draw the LED for turn, attack with swarm, Petal, LED, thinking about Wishing for Bribery to take his Emrakul and beat him to death but decide against that cute play and fire off Brainstorm, cracking the LED for BBB in response. Draw into Ad Nauseam and cast it off 18 life

    Brainstorm (17)

    Infernal Tutor (7)
    Underground Sea (7)
    Empty the Warrens (3)
    Dark Ritual (2)


    Crappy flips. I play Chrome Mox and imprint Probe to cast Ponder. I see Volcanic, LED and Petal. I take the LED and float the Petal. I play U.Sea, Brainstorm into Petal, Play Petals, Dark Ritual off Petal, Dark Ritual, Infernal for LED, play 2 Diamonds with BBB floating, put Infernal on the stack, pop up LEDíS for RRRBBBB in my pool, search for Burning Wish and grab Tendrils from my Sideboard.

    8-0

    After the game he shows me his hand of MBT, Flusterstorm and another Flusterstorm floating on top of his library to spin his SDT into. I feel my boarding was weak but my opponent was on full defense anyways, so a plus in silence-effects should beat that sooner or later. We finished before the other semi final and I order a double espresso machiatto since itís late already and Iím gettín tired after a day @ work + a MTG tournament. I lolíd loud as Goblins beat the SneakShow in the other semi because Griselbrand is worth crap turn 3+ on low life facing an army of green men in addition of drawing useless protection. So itís up against Goblins after a break ... fast forward Ö

    Finals Ė Goblins

    Game 1


    Best info first: I win the dice and can play first. I pray for a hand which is fast and draw the following 7

    Infernal Tutor
    Gitaxian Probe
    Chrome Mox
    Gemstone Mine
    Silence
    Chrome Mox
    Dark Ritual

    Would you keep that hand?


    Double Mox suxx but having Infernal + D. Ritual is a sarting point I cannot ignore. I keep as my opponent does. I probe and see a nice curve of goblins, leading with Lackey. I drew RoF, play Gemstone Mine and Silence-walk in his upkeep. This leaves, him on Mountain, go. I drew Rite of Flame and pass back. He plays Cavern and Lackey. I topdeck Petal, playín pop for R, Rite, Rite, Ritual off Gemstone, for BBBRRRR, cast the 2 Chrome moxen as blanks to turn on Infernal for Ad Nauseam once more off 18 life

    Gemstone Mine (18)
    Gemstone Mine (18)
    Dark Ritual (17)
    Lotus Petal (17)
    LED (17)
    Chrome Mox (17)
    Probe (16)
    Lotus Petal (16)
    Dark Ritual (15)
    Ponder (14)
    Silence (13)
    Brainstorm (12)
    Bruning Wish (10)
    Ponder (9)
    Polluted Delta (9)
    Underground Sea (9)
    LED (9)
    Brainstorm (8)
    Silence (7)
    Duress (6)
    Infernal Tutor (4)


    Play out Petals, Gemstone Mine, Rituals, Infernal for LED, lay down 2 Diamonds, Duress and see no defense, Chrome Mox (Probe), Ponder off Mox, durdle around and end up wishing for a lethal Grapeshot for both the Lackey and his controller.

    9-0

    Sideboarding: -3 Duress, -1 Silence, +2 Chain of Vapor, +2 Cabal Therapy

    Game 2


    He keepís his 7 and so do I.

    Chain of Vapor
    Underground Sea
    Lotus Petal
    Gitaxian Probe
    Gitaxian Probe
    Rite of Flame
    LED

    Would you keep that hand?


    Thatís simply too much mana to ship that hand with chain of vapor as a pseudo-Silence against Lackey or Vial and I can check for MBT out of the board with probe. He starts with Mountain and Lackey. I draw Volcanic and check the coast with probe (storm1) (draw U.Sea). I see Matron, Ringleader and 2 REBís. I play Petal(storm2) and Probe again (storm3) into Brainstorm. I brainstorm (storm4) into Ritual, Petal and Wish off the petal, searching for a shuffle effect for my 3 lands in land, which I fail. I put back Volcanic + Sea, play Underground Sea, Petal (storm5), LED (storm6), Rite off Petal (storm7), Ritual off U.Sea (storm8), Burning Wish (storm9), pop my beloved Ajani Vengeant LED to boost my mana to RBBBBB and grab Tendrils of Agony from my sideboard (storm10)

    10-0

    Now that was a nice evening with some cash gained. I may add additional thought to this one.



    Propper:
    - Location
    - Drinks
    - Patient Peeps
    - PIF for showboating

    Blopper:
    - not having IGG in by SB
    - Bribery was accessible only in one match it mattered but Ad Nauseam was in reach too
    - Horrible performance in game 1
    - lack of practice due to job, family etc.
    - tired due to work before

    Factsheet:
    - 10 games, 10 wins
    - 1 win off EtW
    - 1 win off PIF
    - 2 times casted Diminishing Returns
    - 6 times casted Ad Nauseam
    - 6 games finished via Tendrils
    - 3 games finished via Grapeshot
    - 1 game won off natural spellchain (without engine card involved)
    - casted Lion's Eye Diamond 22-times


    Thx for your patience to read through this wall of text.

    thanks for your detailed report.

    yeah, IGG is useful, especially if you have multiple wishes and LEDs.

    Great report.

    It really gave me a taste for playing storm.
    I was looking at the deck for a while now, but I think you just convinced me to build it.

    Glad you enjoyed it and maybe gave you some insight. Sadly most storm reports are reduced to "Turn 1 Ad Nauseam gets there" which I don't feel contains any value for the reader, therefore I focused on the decisions to make and problems you might face. Thankfully my peeps let me take excessive notes for that purpose.

    I'm not a regular attendant in the ASL for business reasons (happens I peek in). We use to play in Halle (Saale) atm or Potsdam where this one was held. I really depends how many peeps Tim (organizer) can aquire for these wednesday events. It's a pain to take the train down to Halle (thankfully I can either nap there or we share a car)
