    Annnnd here is the deck I built last night. Wasn't entirely happy with my pulls, but I'd say I did alright with what I got. Whip of Erebos ended up saving my ass most of my games, at one point letting me keep going from 1 to 6 health while tinking the other guy down. Ended that match with 1 health at the end of it.

    I ended up going to time twice last night, as my lifegain was pretty good but I never really had enough juice to kill off my opponent.

    The second time I went to time, the game was called a draw when the life totals were 37-4 in my favor, and I needed literally two turns to finish him off, despite him dropping a Tromokratis late.

    I get really annoyed with the way Draws work. Like in that example, you were very obviously winning, and that should count. But at the same time, I realize that doing things like that would just create gray lines of what is "obviously winning"

    My second match ended up being 1-1-1. First game took so long that we had to rush through the second, and ended up only having 3 minutes to play the third. If it weren't for the fact that that was my second match, I would have offered him a booster or two to concede, probably.

    I'm going again tonight, gonna play Green. My buddy last night got both Xenagos, God of Revels, and Xenagos, the Reveler in his prerelease box.

    My other friend, who had never played cards in real life, and 99% of his magic experience was with Duels on steam, came last night and had a blast. He opened two Thoughtseizes, which helped.

    It was funny hearing him say the words, "Why doesn't everyone run 4 of this card? Its so nice to start the game and see your opponents hand and take out something you don't want to see." To which everyone in earshot said something to the effect of, "Yes, that's why its a $17 card."

    his deck was amazing and we were hoping to not have to play each other and just split in the last round but alas

    never do a second event after a moderately successful first one

    1-3, had to be black instead of blue because I got there late, no exciting pulls (or ones that excited me anyway) but had some decent games I guess
    Rares:
    Dumb Black Promo
    Pain Seer
    Fated Return
    Fated Conflagration
    Steam Augury
    Hundred-Handed One
    Celestial Archon

    Deck: White Black control heavy maybe I dunno
    This is what it looked like at the end after putting in basically all my removal in round 3 game 3 and only taking some out for round 4, it was close to this the whole time though, maybe with bears instead of some of the double spells.
    Pain Seer
    Servant of Tymaret
    Returned Centaur
    Insatiable Harpy
    Favored Hoplight
    Nyxborn Shieldmate
    Hopeful Eidolon x2
    Great Hart
    Hundred-Handed One
    Celestial Archon

    Pharika's Curse x2
    Bile Blight
    Asphyxiate
    Gods Willing
    Last Breath
    Revoke Existence x2

    Scourgemark
    Grisly Transformation
    Weight of the Underworld x2

    17 lands

    Only got it really going a couple times, but Pain Seer with hopeful Eidolon bestowed can do some good stuff

    My "Sideboard" of all my other white and black cards
    Claim of Erebos (was in deck a couple times, never used)
    Returned Phalanx
    Nyxborn Eidolon
    Grisly Transformation
    Forsaken Drifters
    Cavern Lampad
    Disciple of Phenax
    Gray Merchant
    Warchanter of Mogis
    Shrike Harpy

    Loyal Pegasus
    Vanguard of Brimaz
    God-Favored General (was in deck sometimes, never used)
    Ray of Dissolution (was in for R3G3 and R4G1, sucked having that in hand instead of Revoke when Ephara was played in r4g1)
    Ephara's Warden (was in deck for two rounds, took it out for the hart)
    Vanquish the Foul

    went 2-2, but splashed a little black into my GU deck so I could Phenax two people to death, and pulled a foil Spirit of the Labyrinth out of my single prize pack, then went and played cube with people after dinner.

    all in all, fun day full of Magic

    Manaless dredge. Ended the daily 4-0, only lost one game! My last opponent was the only one that knew to choose to play second (always choose to be onthe draw against manaless dredge) and he had a ether sworn canonist game 2, which put a crimp in things since I can't combo off with that on board. Instead, I decided to dread return Grave-troll and beat down with that, but he chump blocked with the canonist when I had balustrade spy, another dread return, and multiple Ichorids in my graveyard, so I was able to combo off next turn.

    There was a guy i know who opened 2 Karametra, a fleecemane, the uncommon that puts a counter on up to 3 creatures, eidolon of countless battles, and the archetype of courage

    he did well

    I also went up against a girl who opened 2 mogis, 2 garies, and a fanatic of mogis. She proceeded to kick my ass


    Otherwise, I was 7-1 on the night! Every other single player game i went 2-0, then in 2hg, I built my buddy a RW aggro deck and gave myself the Black/Blue 'Kill spells, counters, and bombs' deck. It went incredibly well. Forgestoker dragon is a fucking house. Also, Gary in 2hg is just wrong.

    Really, really tired though. We ended up winning something like 20 packs, I opened a bunch of junk (and a spirit of the labyrinth), and he got a kiora. I had a great time though!

    So tonight I went to the 6pm prerelease and chose green. Each player adjacent to me opened a Karametra, and 2-3 opened Mogis and one opened Elspeth. The best card I had gotten out of my packs were a Temple, Bob, and Whip. Hell my buddy opened both versions of Xenagos at the midnight release we went to as well.

    So I was kinda bummed today watching everyone open gods while I'm opening Reverent Hunters, Fate Unravelers and other cards that arent so worth at the moment.

    This was my deck tonight:
    1x Charging Badger (dont give a shit)
    1x Nessian Courser
    1x Nemesis of Mortals
    1x Leafcrown Dryad
    1x Reverent Hunter
    1x Pheres-Band Tromper
    1x Nessian Wilds Ravager
    2x Nyxborn Wolf
    1x Voyaging Satyr
    1x Vulpine Goliath
    1x Nessian Demolok
    2x Archetype of Imagination
    1x Swordwise Centaur

    1x Bow of Nylea
    1x Ordeal of Thassa
    2x Karametra's Favor

    2x Stymied Hopes
    1x Crypsis
    1x Hunter's Prowess

    Little bit of green devotion style with a splash of blue. It took me to 3-1 and for the first time I was in the prize! Finished 5th out of 32, which I'm happy totally stoked about because its been just a mere 3 months since I've played my first game of Magic ever.

    So in my three boosters I pulled these two guys:
    8VgSBPM.jpg

    YESSS my buddy gave me Phenax last night, so this makes two gods. Plus I really wanted that Spirit of the Labyrinth because she is for sure a 3/1 for two in white, also fuck you Sphinx.

    So while the night started with me being in a sort of bummed mood, made worse by losing my first match 1-2, it quickly progressed to one of the best nights of cards ever.

    But was that it?

    Right as we were headed to the car, I gave in to the urge to just buy some boosters with the $10 i had. They were out of Born boosters sadly, so I just picked up 3 Theros boosters.

    So what could make this night better?
    TGhaWpS.jpg

    How about a foil motherfucking Elspeth?

    BOOM. So yes, I would say the first prerelease event I attended went pretty damn well.

    Cards are fun.

    My first pool was ok but unremarkable, my second pool was garbage, and my third pool was so amazing a deck basically jumped out of the box in my colors and I didn't even need to make any decisions.

    Xenagos the God, mythic Phoenix, double Fanatic of Mogis, double 3/2 guy for GG, and about 5 burn spells. The rest was also serviceable.

    Turn 2 3/2, Turn 3 Fanatic (with haste), Turn 4 kill your blocker, Turn 5 Xenagos -> "let's go to game 2."
    Turn 2 Voyaging Satyr, Turn 3 5/5 Phoenix, Turn 4 Xenagos -> "ok I signed up for a Limited event, not Constructed"

    So many sad faces.

    I LIVED THE DREAM! Bow of Nylea + Forgestoker Dragon!

    Here was my deck:
    Arena Athlete
    Burnished Hart
    Fanatic of Mogis
    Fellhide Spiritbinder
    2x Forgestoker Dragon
    Kragma Butcher
    Nessian Asp
    Nessian Courser
    2x Nylea's Disciple
    Nyxborn Wolf
    2xPharagax Giant
    Pheres-Band Tromper
    Polis Crusher
    2x Satyr Hedonist

    Bow of Nylea
    2x Mortal's Resolve
    Searing Blood
    Time to Feed

    8x Forest
    7x Mountain


    Let's see if I can remember my partner's deck:

    Arbiter of the Ideal
    Archetype of Imagination
    Baleful Eidolon
    Cavern Lampad
    Disciple of Phenax
    Erebos's Emissary
    0x Gray Merchant of Asphodel
    Keepsake Gorgon
    Medomai the Ageless
    Nimbus Naiad
    Returned Phalanx
    Siren of the Fanged Coast
    Siren of the Silent Song


    3x Aphyxiate
    2x Griptide
    Nullify
    Revoke Existence
    Sea God's Revenge

    7x Island
    7x Swamp
    3x Plains

    And a bunch more removal.

    We were Team Sea Slugs. Our exploits included surviving a Gary to the face for ten and still winning. (Countering the second Gary helped) Not to mention turning a game around where the opponents had a Mistcutter Hydra (one of their TWO) swinging for five each turn, clinging to life by using Bow of Nylea's life gain mode each turn, until I topdecked my Forgestoker Dragon with mana open for Mortal's Resolve (never used) and won the game. Overall we got fourth and 2 packs each, so that's half of next week's draft covered.

    And that Bow is going straight into my Marath EDH where it can continue to machine gun blockers to death.

    So true, the fact that my partner had three let me run less removal. (Although now I wonder what would happen if I ran all the myriad burn spells I got in the pool) The only thing Asphyxiate couldn't kill was Mistcutter Hydra, which is never untapped and can't be Griptided or bounced.
