Game #47: The Mimeoplasm
Location: The living room of my childhood home in Duluth,MN
Vs.: Rhys the Redeemed
Another battle through the plains vs my brother (whose middle name is Rhys). This time we landed on the Aether Flues and pretty much stayed there. I was quite happy to be able to sacrifice creatures into my graveyard.
I started with 3 lands and I entombed for Death’s Shadow right off the bat, and rolled Chaos to play a Krosan Tusker. Rhys played a taunting elf and Pianna, Nomad Captain. I play a Fierce Empath, get an Aetherling and sac it to AetherFlues for an Eternal Witness which gets back Entomb (cast for Doomgape). E.Witness flues into an Acidic Slime.
Meanwhile, Rhys has sacced Valor, and has an Elvish Archdruid, lots of Elves and Ezuri basically waiting to crush me, but I’m able to get Mimeoplasm onto the battlefield as an Aetherling with 13 extra counters. I swing, unblockable and pump up to 23 for a one shot General Damage kill.
About the Deck ( old version, pre Innistrad/RTR updates http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/oh-me-oh-mimeoplasm/)
This is a mimeoplasm deck. It puts good or large things in the graveyard for Mimeoplasm to eat and become. I don’t know that mine has anything particularly special about it. When Lions Eye Diamond got unbanned, I slammed that one right in there. Second turn Mimeoplasm is fun times (I’ve only done it once, swung for 16 and then lost him to targeted removal).
