Game #77 : Sol’Kanar the Swamp King
Location: Family Game Store
vs: Oloro, Ageless Ascetic (Stock); Marath, Will of the Wild (modified); Krenko, Mob Boss; Prime Speaker Zeganna
This game saw Marath get cast 6 times and be huge (thanks to a Doubling Season, Mirari’s Wake, Mana Echoes, Gaea’s Cradle etc.). Krenko had a threatening position for awhile with 18 goblins that were hasty and 2/2, and that was able to basically destroy Zeganna. My Sol’Kanar never really got rolling. I plinked away with a Shadowmage Infiltrator, tried to get going with Dominus of Fealty (Which was killed by Marath, who had untapped lands hidden behind a tall drink, and was able to ping it after it blocked). The only trick I really got to do was a Spinal Embrace, and reanimation of a Wurmcoil Engine. Marath ended up killing everyone else with an Elspeth Sun’s Champion Emblem.
About the Deck( List coming soon)
This is mostly a UBR “fun”-stuff deck that splintered off from leftovers from building Ashling the Extinguisher, nu-Rakdos and Gwendlyn di Corci. I wanted an excuse to play Prince of Thralls and a few other multi-colored cards like Elder Mastery and such. It’s fun to play, but it’s not really a go-to deck. It’s just as happy to beat down with the general as it is to try to steal things from other people. Sol’Kanar is a fan of Urborg.
