Game #60: Skyfire Kirin
Location: Family Game Store
Result: Unsatisfying Loss
I showed up a bit late, but only one other person was there (Balthor), so we decided to play a few games while we waited (and it turned out to be just us).
I draw a bunch of lands and play Skyfire on turn 4. It gets Skin Render-ed. I play Skyfire again. A Memory Jar kind of wrecks my hand (don’t remember what I lost, but it was all good stuff). I jump through a bunch of hoops and cast a number of spells to temporarily borrow Lord of the Undead and Gravecrawler. Then I die miserably.
Not a great Maiden Voyage for the Skyfire
About the Deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/fire-in-the-sky-1/ partial list)
For reasons I don’t understand, I decided I needed to have an Ultra-Mono (no artifacts or non-Color Identity* cards) Red deck that was also Spirit Tribal (it was almost also Kamigawa Block Constructed….). Also Skyfire Kirin looks rad in Foil, and red has some fun Arcane/Splice cards. Sadly, Skyfire doesn’t give haste, and there aren’t that many great Red sac-outlets. It might need Goblin Bombardment.
