Game #195: Godo, Bandit Warlord (try 2, and try 3)
Date: 2016-04-05 (2016-03-22)
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Kemba, Kha Regent; Doran the Siege Tower (Derevi, Radha, Mimeoplasm)
Result: Fun Win (Unfun early scoop)
After forgetting to record my first run-through of Godo, I tried again at a later date for an official game. I bowed out of the second game early (like turn 2) because a Mimeoplasm player played the artifact that forces mill for untapping immediately (and I’ve never had fun against early crippling mill like that). Try 3 shaped up to be a game where people actually got to play instead of not being able to cast anything.
I kept a 2 land hand, but played a turn two Sword of the Animist and a turn 3 Tenza and was able to get a creature out to equip the Sword to. Doran came out on turn 3 but was Path to Exiled. Kemba played several cheap equipment but then got Path to Exiled as well. Ajani Mentor of Heroes came on board, and managed to Ultimate Doran up to 117 life.
I played Godo and found Trailblazer’s Boots and also had Swiftfoot Boots. Godo got killed though. Doran played a Mirari’s wake, but I think I copied a Qasali Pridemage somehow and killed the Wake. At some point Ajani gets O-Ringed. Doran plays a Torpor Orb (I hate that!). Doran also has, somehow, an 8/9 Birds of Paradise.
I play Kumano, Master Yamabushi and give him Blinding Powder, Tenza and the Swiftfoot Boots, but Crux of Fate wipes the board. I’m able to re-cast Godo and I get to Swing with Tenza, Swiftoot Boots, and clearly something else (it’s been awhile since this game was played) as I’m able to kill off Kemba (Doran having previously died, I believe) with the second attack.
