Game #142: Ephara, God of the Polis
Location: Family Game Store
Vs. Kruphix God of Horizons; Brago, King Eternal; Karona (lucifer), Grimgrin, CorpseBorn
Result: mostly Fun Loss
I start with 3 lands and evolving wilds and play an early Chasm Skulker. Kruphix and it’s prophet are out early, but the prophet is killed, but not before flashing in an Avenger of Zendikar. Karona cast Blasphemous Act, and afterwards Prohpet of Kruphix comes back, only to be stolen by Grimgrin.
Karona plays Aurelia for a big attack, then Brago swings to blink a Luminous Primordial which mostly picks on Karona (after trying to exile the Prohpet, which is Erratic Portaled). Grimgrin attacks killing of Brago the creature, and the Primordial. Then Kruphix Yevas in a Terastodon. All the while I have a Darien, King of Kjeldor out and am building a Token army and making small attacks. Karona plays a Pyrrhic Revival and then casts Mass Mutiny for a big attack. The turns seem to be long in this game. I cast a Winds of Rath blinking Darien somehow, but I can’t get through with any attacks, and someone else wins. Probably Karona.
About the deck ( http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/celestial-rebel-alliance/)
This is a Rebels deck, kind of, with a bit of Constellation added in just for fun. The idea is to get some rebels out, and maybe make some tokens with Ephara, thus there are some flash creatures too. The Serra’s Sanctum is a sharpie proxy drawn like Bespin, and the Tundra is a sharpie proxy that also says Hoth on it.
