Game #35 : Vorosh, the Hunter
Location: Friend’s house in Duluth
vs: Kumano, Master Yam; Teysa, Orzhov Scion; Glissa, the Traitor
Result: Very Unsatisfying
I was pumped after getting a beatdown win with Aurelia, so I decided to pull out a less beat-down-y deck. I had an okay opening hand, lacking green mana, but with a Rhystic Study, which I cast on turn 3. Unbeknownst to me, playing a Rhystic Study in these parts is like taking someone’s kitten and bludgeoning their grandmother with it. I had a slow creature-start, so I just got pounded (or rather Rhystic Study did: had I been clever I would have just let it take the damage when other players said “attack Rhystic Study”). After watching people tap out to attack me, and with no other option to destroy the enchantment myself, I just scooped so I could stop openly Affronting their Deeply Rooted Personal Beliefs and Lifestyle Choices by potentially drawing a few extra cards until someone drew a Disenchant.
I think Teysa ended up winning.
About the Deck: (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/vorosh-plus-one/)
This deck is about two things: +1/+1 counters (and the manipulation thereof) and everybody drawing tons of cards (and maybe hurting because of it thanks to Underworld Dreams or Psychosis Crawler ). It can also sneak in a win with Infinite Reflection/Biovisionary if it needs to. It might also Mill a little bit to finish people off after they’ve drawn many cards.
