    OTP T1 Lab Man, you Pyroblast, and I Subtlety yours to draw.
    OTD you play Lab Man, I Subtlety, and you Pyroblast to protect and win first.
    DL 1-4

    Wrath of Pie: Strip Mine, Aether Vial, Meddling Mage, Vexing Bauble
    OTP Lab Man and win.
    OTD T1 Bauble stops 3 of my cards and Commandeering it doesn't help.
    WL 3-3

    Silkster: Black Lotus, Laboratory Maniac, Black Lotus, Chaoslace
    T1 Lab Man, Subtlety yours to stall. WW 6-0

    Asthereal: Azorius Chancery, Wasteland, Hope-Ender Coatl, Dovin, Grand Arbiter
    T1 Lab Man WW 6-0

    28 points (9 wins, 1 draw, 2 loss)

    Strafe was on my shortlist but I thought it was too narrow. I saw this round going 2 ways: "loses to Sunlance" or "raced by Lackey + disrupton that doesn't stop Lackey". Strafe is great vs "loses to Sunlance" and terrible otherwise, so I avoided it. I also had a narrow meta deck that scores a perfect sweep here, but it's terrible against so many things, and I didn't expect this much Lotus + Lab Man.

    I made the ceiling deck again. 0-6 in all, by the looks of things.
    Maybe I shouldn't enter at all if I can only spend 5 minutes on my deck.

    7w = 21 points

    Vexing Bauble was good.

    Keep playing! At worst it sets the ceiling deck to a lower power level that shakes up the whole format and makes the next round more interesting. You're still having a fun impact on the game even if you can only spare 5 mins.

    That's true. The power level gets quite a swing next round.

    Storage lands might actually be playable for once.

    FON + subtlety seemed like the obvious best interaction, so I played this. Luckily, no one played strafe instead.

    You ping on T3 so Iím too fast. WW 6-0

    Too slow to rebuild. WW 6-0

    My interaction is slightly better. WD 4-1

    Sorry for the delay in the formal announcement, though it did sound like everyone was already on the same page.

    Next ceiling deck: Azorius Chancery, Wasteland, Hope-Ender Coatl, Dovin, Grand Arbiter.

    For me it's early.

    Replied to your PM. I think I'm good but maybe I missed something.

    LL - Between Bazaar, the token, and Fury, I can stop two out of three.

    DD - Wow, this is cool. I tried to come up with a thing that loses to Wasteland like this, but the best I found was Pact of Negation + Angel's Grace. I'm also kicking myself here because I should have played City of Traitors which would have let me win this.

    Asthereal: Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Mishra's Factory, Maze of Ith, Liliana of the Veil, comment:
    LL - I missed the line where the ceiling deck discards Coatl, plays and upticks Dovin, eats one attack from Factory, and then wastes the Factory. Tendo, Ice Bridge over Fountain would have snatched a draw here.

    WW - Finally a deck that I was prepared for!

    Silkster: Radiant Fountain, Hex Parasite, Force of Will, Snapback, comment: just barely legal
    I believe that I lose against the ceiling deck while it's at 1 life, with the Dovin gaining 1 and the Force of Will costing 1 both being relevant.

    Ftw: Black Lotus, Black Lotus, Persecute, Kitesail Freebooter, comment: Coin flip
    DD - You can't catch the Parasite. Forcing Lotus or Persecute is the same: you land Freebooter either way. I can't block you, but you can't race.
