(it’s been awhile since this game was played, so details may be fuzzy)

I started with 3 lands, into a Merrow Commerce, Manalith, and Jace’s Sanctum on turn 2,3,4.  However I missed lands on turn 5 and 6.  Though Noyan Dar came out on turn 5 and Meloku, turn 6.  Everyone else started out with lands. Kasero dropped some Ninjas and Wort had a Solemn Simulacrum, and then a Seedborn muse.   Borborygmos got huge with hardened Scales and a Runes of the Deus.

I was able to start bulding up lands into big creatures, and using Meloku to get other creatures to block with. I played a Merrow Reejery.   Kasero put a quietus spike on a Wake Thrasher, and Wort was Wurm Calling a whole lot.  Borborygmos smashed Kasero down to 7.  Borborygmos died to something.  I did a decent job of hanging on for awhile against Wort, and built up more land creatures, but I think I ultimately died.

About the Deck:  The goal is to build up lands via Noyan Dar and other Awaken spells. Xenograft is also used to make everyone Merfolk (and I think I also try to make them all Blue as well). Lots of buyback spells to keep fueling Dar’s pseudo Awaken abilities.  I didn’t think much of Noyan Dar at first, but after putting in a ton of land-protection spells and creature-untapping stuff, I think he’s pretty all right.
