Game #87: Bosh, Iron Golem
Location: Family Game Store, Savage, MD
vs. Odric, Master Tactician; Ghave, Guru of Spores #1; Ghave, Guru of Spores #2; Karona
Result: Fun Loss
Two more people had shown up, and the more competitive players were able to move to a different table for winning on turn 4 or 5. Balthor’s player decided to borrow the Karona foil deck again (which is never not fun), and there was double Ghave. I was testing out the only deck I’ve ever basically copied from somewhere else (though I did modify it, see below).
I start with 3 lands and some 4 cmc stuff. However, I draw Gilded Lotus, Mountain, Sol ring, which all get played on turn 4. Turn 5 is Darksteel Forge and right before my turn 7 starts I flash in Shimmer Myr and Bosh. Odric has played Skullclamp, Scroll Rack, Elspeth #1 and other soldier pumpers. Ghave 1 has mortarpod and Maw of Obzedat and Karona just has lands from Dreamscape Artist.
Sadly, I mostly draw mountains for the rest of the game. Theonly other artifacts I draw are Lodestone Golem, Prototype Portal and Summoner’s Egg (which hatches a Goblin Welder), and a late Basalt Monolith.
Odric also has an Emeria, The Sky Ruin. Karona does a ton of work in the game. Luckily I have an Indestructible 6/7 who can block all day (Though I get 16 karona damage thanks to an Ajani-ed 8/8 flying double strike swing). Hallowed Burial is cast, Bosh flings some stuff, including himself, but I lose the Goblin Welder (which means I can’t throw the Darksteel Forge around).
Ghave #1 sets up an infinite amount of non hasty tokens (but not an infinite supply of mana to mortar pod) and we have one turn to live. I get Karona and deal the final General damage to Ghave #2, and then as people comment that it’s too bad that Karona isn’t an artifact for Bosh to toss, I just cast Fling and toss her at Ghave 1, who is then in range for Bosh to throw the Gilded Lotus, Darksteel Forge, and Himself at to kill as well.
Then I die to Karona, and later Odric does.
Foil Karona is always fun to die to.
About the Deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/bosh-staples-removed-copy/)
When I saw this deck on the Commander Cast site, I was like SWEET! I need to build this. So I did. I had to make a few changes since I don’t have an Arcbound Ravager and a few other cards, but I added stuff like Ogre Geargrabber, which is thematic. I also swapped in a Rocket Launcher for Kaboom! because I love rocket launcher and it loves mana. This is the only decklist I’ve ever copied. It plays fast and fun based on some testing and it’s debut here. (though I need to draw cards!)
