    16th Place At GAGG

    The beginning-

    I choose to play The Epic storm for this event after only a few short weeks I was surprised at how well the deck was doing in testing. I was unable to test the sideboarding strategies as much I would have liked.

    Here is the list

    4 Lotus Petal
    4 Chrome Mox
    4 Lionís Eye Diamond
    4 Gemstone Mine
    4 City Of Brass
    1 Undiscovered Paradise
    1 Tomb of Urami
    1 Forbidden Orchard

    4 Xandit Swarm

    1 Ill-Gotten Gains
    4 Burning Wish
    2 Tendrils of Agony
    4 Dark Ritual
    4 Cabal Ritual
    4 Infernal Tutor
    4 Plunge into Darkness
    1 Diminishing Returns
    4 Rite of Flame
    1 Empty the Warrens
    4 Brainstorm


    Sideboard

    1 Tendrils of agony
    2 Empty the Warrens
    2 Defense Grid
    3 Shattering Spree
    2 Chain of vapor
    1 Tranquility
    1 Earthquake
    1 Ill-Gotten Gains
    1 Duress
    1 Diminishing Returns

    As I said the side board was a bit untested but I am not quite sure what I would change. So to the report.

    Round 1
    (Raider Bob)- Bob The Belcher

    Game 1- I lose the die roll and am on the draw. I also mulligan. He plays first turn exploration and another land and a zuran orb. I play 12 Goblin via Empty The Warrens. He loses shortly after to miscalculation of Mishaís Factory and zuran orb life.Bob though that Empty The Warrens produced 1 2/2 Goblin not 2 1/1 goblins.

    Game 2- I go for a turn three after some optimization and in response to infernal he Orims chantís me and I take 8 burn. I lose shortly after to mishra beats.

    Game 3- I have to mulligan to five and have a weak start I get crushed by chalice at one (which I burning wish for shattering spree) and later chalice at 2. at this point he has wasteland lock on me and I canít get enough mana to shattering spree before I am kill by Mishraís Factory.
    (1-2)
    Round 2 Kai Playing UWG thresh.
    Game 1 Ė I play xandit which he dazes later he lets another through which allows me to Empty the Warrens for 12 a few turns later and just win.

    Game 2- I have a xandit which he again dazes after portent he says go again I play my second land and go for it. I play Dark Ritual which He dazes. I pay and then procede to play Xhrome Mox (imprint Burning Wish) Rite of Flame and Lotus Petal into wish Empty the Warrens. His board 0 lands. Mine 12 tokens.
    (2-0)

    Round 3 (Birdman) Playing Birds

    Game 1- I win after getting just enough storm through Diminishing Returns Into Burning wish into Illgotten Gains fot he tendtil win. He had Jitte with 4 counters.

    Game 2 He plays first trn Suntail Hawk. I play land He Plays Meddling mage on Burning wish. I habe double LED with infernal and go for the IGG loop.
    (2-0)

    Round 4 (Mr. Nightmare) uwb Adam Fish-
    I have always enjoyed playing against Adam he is a very enjoyable opponent to play against.

    Game 1- I am on the play and decide to keep. Adam mulligans to six and decides to keep. I play land go and he plays with Mother of ruins. I go all in with wish with LED and other acceleration for Empty the Warrens. He shows me Force of Will. I just sit there waiting. I finally ask him what he is removing and he says he doesnít have the blue card. I win shortly after.

    Game 2- I comment on Adams trick play but told him I couldnít think of many player who would be awful enough to scoop to FOW. Then I said aloud Calosso he said he was thinking the same thing. I lose after returns yield me no acceleration.

    Game 3- I lose to MM on LED and Plage on Goblins.
    (1-2)
    Round 5 Zach Fine (Mono White Angle Stompy)

    Game1 -I win on turn 4 after returns gives me the gas I need.

    Games 2-He plays Savannah Lion first turn I take my turn and tell him my play is more impressive. I make 12 ETW tokens and he loses in 2 turns.

    Round 6 Eric playing pox with small pox.

    Game 1- I lose to double Hymn. That wasnít very nice.

    Game 2- I see that eric boards like 100 cards in so I am some what worried. I board in the random Duress, 2 Chain of vapor, and 1 Shattering Spree. I am on the play and I play the on duress in the deck. I study my hand and his and see that I will have to go for the ETW play with the disruption he has. His hand is Duress, E. Plague, and Bottomless Pit plus three lands. I take E. plague. I later ETW for 8 guys and win in three.

    Game 3- My heart is racing even though I know I canít make it I want to have a positive end record.
    Eric is on the play and leads with Dark Ritual into Crucible. Not a great start for him. I play Gemstone Mine and pass. He plays Small pox. I frown. On My next then I again play Gemstone Mine on his turn 4 he plays Pox. Ouch that really hurts. I look at my 4 card hand and get a huge gin on my face. We are both at 12 from Samll Pox and Pox respectively. My hand is the following cards. 1 Lotus petal, 1Dark Ritual, 1 Cabal Ritual, and Infernal Tutor. I draw for the turn and draw plunge. I play lotus petal(storm 1) Dark ritual (BBB,storm 2), Cabal ritual (BBBBBB, storm 3) ,Plunge into Darkness(paying 7, BBBB Strom 4), get Led Play LED(BBBB,storm 5) play Infernal and sac LED in response( BBBBB, Strom 6) I get IGG and play it(B,strom 7) I return Dark ritual Cabal Ritual and a tendrils that I discarded to Pox earlier.
    This was hands down one of the best games of magic that I Have ever played.

    So my end record was 4-2 and I Placed 16th not overly impressive but not horrible either.

    Too bad you're a lightweight

    I'm assuming you don't remember the time when Krieger had you tied up to the bed and was showing you what "First-Strike" meant???

    Didn't think so.

    ... That movie is basically shit... the whole purpose of that movie is like American Pie; it's a poor excuse for porn. It's basically advertising Eva Mendez, due to her incredible sexiness. I wondered why I havent become gay yet; she's half the reason. The other 50% goes to Rachael Leigh Cook.

    Lies. While Eva Mendez's boobs were a nice touch, the movie was one of the gooder Comic adaptations of late. Better by far than X-Men 3, for example.

    Clearly you have absolutely no idea what I was talking about.
