Angus MacKenzieVS.Thromok the Insatiable

After having played a few games with the new Commander 2013 decks, my friend and I got in one regular EDH game before it was time to play Star Trek Catan.

Thromok got a quick start with a Nest Invader (which always makes me think of the “Bed Intruder” song).  I start with a Rhox War Monk followed by my General (who gets Chaos Warped).  My start was pretty slow, being stuck at 4 lands, but eventually I start drawing lands and a bunch of Landfall cards like Rampaging Baloths, Lotus Cobra, etc as well as lands like Ghost Town and tricks like Fathom Seer.  Finally a Tradewind Rider (with an active Quest for Renewal… or what ever the untapping quest is) let me deal with threats and continue to draw cards off of Fathom Seer.   The game ends with huge attack from a Nacatl War-pride.

About the Deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/angus-beef/)

This is a deck to play with landfall and make tokens.  Fun tricks include trying to get bazillions of Doppleganger-ed Mirror-Sigil Sergeants, or doing crazy mana tricks with Amulet of Vigor and Patron of the Moon (similar to my Moonfolk deck, but with white and green for more fun like Lotus Cobra).  Angus is nice to ward off attacks, and there are ways to untap the general frequently if necessary.
