Game #42.1, 42.2 : Melek, Izzet Paragon
Date: 2013-07-16
Location: Friend’s house in Duluth
vs: Lorax, the Siege Tower

Melek, Izzet ParagonVSDoran the Siege Tower

Doran hit the table early, but was Rapidly Hybridized. Despite a 3 land opening hand, I stalled at 4 lands and was quickly overwhelmed by Garruk, Avenger of Zendikar and a bunch of other things. This was the first try on a new deck, so we decided to play a second game.

GAME 2:

Doran hits on turn 3 again, and there’s a Deadbridge Chant, Oracle of Mul-Daya and a Treasury Thrull in the  mix as well.  I was able to play Melek though, as well as a Reliquary tower and a Hypersonic Dragon.  I was able to play a doubled Act of Treason, but drew a Bribery, missing out on double casting it, however I did Bribery for an Avenger of Zendikar and an overloaded Dragonshift let my plant tokens become Dragons long enough to fly in for the kill.

About the Deck: (Tapped out coming soon)

A Blue-Red  Instants and Sorceries Matter deck with two rules:

  1. No Counterspells
  2. No Burn

There’s a good mix of theft, token generation, and combat buffs to make winning via beatdown a possibility.  It has some library manipulation (scroll rack) to try to maximize Melek’s abilities.  I enjoy trying to cast Haze of Rage as many times as possible in a turn.
