Game #68: Johan
Location: Family Game Store
vs: Balthor; Maelstrom Wanderer; The Mimeoplasm
After a decent game with Zur, I decided to pull out this Random Naya pile. I started with a two land hand, but stalled out at three lands for a long time (though it allowed me to discard Anger to the yard). I didn’t do much more than play a Personal Sanctuary (a french one that I couldn’t translate). I may have also played a Retaliator Griffin.
Balthor had a Caged Sun and a Pontiff of Blight. Maelstrom Wandered into a Myr Battlesphere and possibly also a Molten Primordial. I don’t remember much else from this game other than Mikaeus showed up and we all died to massive amounts of extort from the Pontiff of Blight.
About the Deck ( http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/johanna/ )
This deck is sort of a random mishmash of things. I needed to have another Naya deck at the ready so I could take apart Uril. Johan was a favorite Legend from the old days, so I through this deck together. It does a lot of different things. Making big mana by attacking or Mana Echoes. Tricks with Aluren and Horned Kavu and Warstorm Surge (or making a Changeling loop), some life gain tricks. It’s not a very focused deck, but it can be a lot of fun to play.
