Game #48: Lazav (Dimir GUILD)
Location: My Childhood home in Duluth
vs.: Aurelia (Guild); Trostani (Guild)
My brother and fiance were both down to play a guild deck game again, so we gathered ’round the dining room table. I had a 4 land hand, but very few swamps. I played Bloodletter’s Quill (which is a silly card). Lazav came out on turn 5.
the Boros guild (fiance) had a Viashino Firstblade, and brother Selesnya had a Phantom General. An Armada Wurm ended up in the graveyard, so Lazav became it and so did a Dimir Doppleganger.
The Boros swung at me with Tajic, Firemane Avenger and something else to hit for 12. I Hex away most of the board and Lazav becomes a Phytohydra.
Aurelia swings at the Selesnya (who have a Trostani’s Summoner and some tokens), with Aurelia, Tajic, Agrus Kos and another dude, but Kos gets killed. Trostani is down to 10 and has 18 general damage.
Lazav and the Doppleganger are now both Giant Adephages. Trostani regains some life, and convoke Exiles the Doppleganger-adephage, and Razia joins Aurelia. Then they kill Trostani.
I Mind Grind for 7, but I think it gets Frontline Medic-ed. So I kill the Medic and use Codex Shredder to get back Mind Grind, cast it for 8 and win via Mill.
About the Deck: This is a Guild deck. All the cards are from Ravnica sets, and are either Dimir Stamped or un-guilded.
