Game #10: Uril, the Miststalker
Location: Family Game Store, Savage, MD
vs: Balthor the Defiled; Olivia Voldaren
Result: Fun Loss
I started with a hand of 6 lands and a Serra Avatar, and thus I played Uril on Turn 5, followed by an Academy Rector. Olivia was already on the board and pinging. Balthor didn’t get off to a very fast start, but was frightening as always. Though I hadn’t drawn any Auras yet, I chose to get Mirari’s Wake when Olivia killed my Rector. I played a Qasali Pridemage who just chilled out and Exalted Uril (until he needed to take care of Balthor’s Akroma’s Memorial. Eventually I had an Empyrial Armor on Uril (with one card in hand), but by this time Olivia was fully active, and Balthor had Gravecrawler/Altar/Mikaeus combo action, which Olivia stopped once by forcing Mikaeus to get sac-ced, but the thing about Zombies is that they keep coming back again and again, and he Mikeaus got recurred and we died. It was a mostly fun game.
About the Deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/my-name-is-uril-17-05-13-1/)
This is a standard Uril + Enchantress style deck. There’s not much creative in it, and thus this was it’s final hurrah. I think I’m going to take it apart and turn it into a Krond the Dawn Clad deck.
