Game #56: Xira Arien
Location: Family Game Store
vs. Edric, Spymaster of Trest; Vorel of the Hull Clade
The Eldrazi Horde vs Simic Guys in Round 1 of the “Night of Insurrection and Obliteration”…
I start with 2 lands and a Moss Diamond and later a Basalt Monolith plus Nest Invader and Emrakul’s Hatcher.
Vorel has an Enclave Cryptologist, then soon a Doubling Season and Primordial Hydra.
Edric entwines Tooth and Nail for Ulamog and Spore Frog. Vorel unkicked Rite of Replications Ulamog (please note that I am the one playing Eldrazi Tribal…) Edric has Genesis and Spore Frog online and Natural Orders for Woodfall Primus
I have an Ulamog’s Pawn and another Eldrazi Spawn. Edric Kicked Rite of Replication on my Kozilek’s Predator and Edric’s Ulamog attacks Vorel. Vorel tries a Kederekt Leviathan, but it’s Mana Drained. Then Edric Knowledge Exploitations me, casts Obliterate, and it’s over.
About the Deck (Tapped out Someday)
This is Eldrazi and Eldrazi Spawn Tribal with friends. Emrakul is still legal in my own home, but She/he/it (in your best Clay Davis voice) only gets played against my brother (also this deck was originally built before that banning). The other reason this deck exists is because I love Dragon Appeasement a lot (and the general is card-draw). It’s pretty much every card that is or says Eldrazi on it and a few other good things like Beast Master Ascension. I think my brother and I also allow Spawnsire of Ulamog to do its Ultimate (I need a huge stack of Ulamog’s Crushers).
This deck could maybe maybe get taken apart to build Prossh (or maybe I’ll take apart Kresh), but then again, probably not.
