Game #151.1, 151.2: Rosheen Meanderer
Location: Family Game Store
Vs. Rhys the Redeemed; Gisa
Result: Mana Screw Loss; Fun Loss
In the first game I started with a Mountain and a Forest and a Gyre Sage (with a creature I could cast to give it a counter). The Gyre Sage died to a Fleshbag Marauder. I didn’t draw another land until turn 9 (and then Rhys’s Tempt with Discovery helped me almost get into the game… but I died to an attack before I even got to untap). Rhys did a bunch of Sun Titaning, Gisa had Vesuva and Coffers and lots of other stuff. I just discarded things all game.
GAME 2: Same Cast.
In this game I got to do things. I had a Primordial Hydra get up to 28/28 before being All is Dusted. I also cast Domri Rade for the first time. I had Mana Reflection and Rosheen and I did tricks with Mistcutter Hydra to activate Raid to Howl of the Horde on a Clan Defiance to kill Rhys and deal 14 to Gisa. I could have killed Gisa next turn, until he realized that he could kill me with Poison.
About the Deck: (Tapped out Someday)
This deck is the Joy of X. It’s basically Hydra Tribal and X spells. I even play some bad Hydras. Rosheen is pretty fun as a general as well. The goal is to cast many Hydras and X Spells. I bought a Mana Reflection for it so that Rosheen can tap for 8.
