Game #201: Gisa and Geralf
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Scion of the Ur-Dragon; Trostani, Selesnya’s Voice
Result: Neutral Win (kinda)
The first game in week one of the “Super October Frightfest of Cereal Box Monsters.”
I kept a 3 land hand, played Crow of Dark Tidings on turn 3, Gisa and Geralf on turn 4, and Rooftop Storm on turn 5 (via a Temple of the False God) after having Buried Alived somehow. Trostani cast a Nevinyrral’s disk, while I had a board that included Undead Warchief, Diregraf Captain, and a bunch of other Zombies. He popped the disk the turn after I cast Diabolic tutor to find Zombie Apocalypse. Trostani was having mana troubles and scooped, and when I attacked Scion with my zombie hoard, he just figured it was the end for him and didn’t block.
About the Deck http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/sibiling-rivalry/
The deck is mostly about loading the graveyard with zombies, and then being able to cast the zombies via Gisa and Geralf. If I were a rich man, there’d be more Zombie lords. Ashes of the Fallen is in there to get back just Gisa, just Geralf, Liliana and Nighthowler.
