Game #51: Trostani, Selesnya’s Voice
Location: Family Game Store
vs.: Savra (GUILD)
result: fun loss
This is a non-guild Trostani life-gain deck. I played an early Ajani’s Pridemate and an Armadillo Cloak, which was Abruptly Decayed. Savra played a Korozda Guildmage. I played Healer of the Pride, Trostani and an Essence Warden, but they got Hexed. I played something with double strike and lifelink, but they were things that could by Sylvan Primordialed. Savra played a Necropolis Regent that got really big. I wasn’t having awesome luck with my draws. A doubling season hit the table, but I was able to Ray it from the graveyard. I died, 1 mana short of an entwined Tooth and Nail that would have won the game.
About the Deck: Tapped Out someday
This deck happened as a spin off of building Seton (and cards that didn’t make the cut when it was going to be partial Beast tribal, went on to become the core of Marath). The goal is to gain a lot of life, and use life-gain triggers to enable win-condition creatures. It has the infinite Archangel of Thune/ Spike Feeder combo in it, and is the first deck I ever put a Tooth and Nail in (though not the first deck I cast it with).
