Game #64: Vela, the Nightclad
Location: Family Game Store
Vs.: Jaya Ballard; Ruric Thar, the Unbowed; Balthor
I start with 3 lands and an Augury Owl. Balthor has an early Fleshbag Marauder.
I start building up some decent stuff like Cloud of Faeries, Puppet Conjurer, a Dopplganger, Sengir Autocrat, Ashnod’s Altar and Thopter Squadron, but I have a really hard time keeping Vela on the table because Jaya Ballard can just kill her for R. Ruric sends some General Damage my way, Balthor plays a Gray Merchant, but Jay Infernos everything and then we all die to the Red Women (the theme of the Jaya deck).
About the Deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/vela-fleck/)
The decklist in the link is an early version of the deck, and may not reflect its current state. The goal of the deck is to have creatures leave the battlefield (my favorite way being looping Su Chi with Ashnod’s Altar and Nim Deathmantle for the added bonus of infinite colorless mana), OR to have a lot of cool artifact creatures with Intimidate.
