Game #115: Trostani, Selesnya’s Voice (GUILD)
Vs. Orzhov Guild
Result: Fun Loss
The most recent snow storm meant another few days off of work. Instead of shoveling out the cars, my fiance offered to play a few guild deck games. Wanting to finish up this project, I decided that they’d be official games. I started with a one plains hand, but I had a Birds of Paradise in hand, and decided to gamble on the draw (all of the decks have 39 lands plus signet, cluestone, keyrune). and I got it on the draw. She started with 2 lands and a Kingpin’s Pet and followed it up with an Absolver Thrull (with nothing to destroy). I drew a forest and played Watchwolf, and the next turn played another forest, Birds of Paradise and Voice of Resurgence, but then stalled at 3 lands for a long time.
She built up a small army of bats and other things with Belfry Spirit and played Obzedat. The Thrull died, haunting the birds of paradise. I got a Glare of Subdual into play and had to cast //Well to gain some life back. I Devouring Lighted an unblockable (via Rogue’s passage (her most hated card)) Obzedat, and then she cast Merciless Eviction wiping the board. I’m still at 3 lands at this point.
I used the Glare of Subdual to keep a re-cast Obzedat from attacking, but a Storm Herd for 57 was the end of things. I was attacked and knocked to -50 life. It’s hard not to have fun in a game where you are run over by 57 Pegasus. I might have enjoyed having more than 3 lands though.
About the Deck
Another Guild deck. Of course this one is all about tokens.
