I had decent lands to start this game, and I cast a Hundred Handed One, as well as Asmira off of an Opal Palace.  Gisa had crazy amounts of stuff – Caged Sun, Rings of Brighthearth, Nihil Spellbomb, Strata Scythe, Urborg, an Inkmoth Nexus etc.  (though the Inkmoth with Scythe ended up becoming a bunch of Zombies).

Sun Quan cursed my whole team into Swine, before Gisa killed him. I recast Asmira with Opal Palace, and Saffi Erkisdottir as well, but I’m pretty sure I died to a crap ton of zombies.

About the Deck (tapped out Someday)

Asmira is one of the only Legends done by Rebecca Guay (by far my favorite Magic artist) so I’d always intended on building a deck around her. My kickstarted copy of “Evolution: the art of Rebecca Guay” arriving prompted me to finish this deck.  It plays the good old fashioned Enduring Renewal combo to do stuff and put a lot of creatures into the graveyard to try to buff up Asmira. There’s a bit of a reanimation theme as well as a few +1/+1 counters tricks.
