The first game in week two of the “Super October Frightfest of Cereal Box Monsters.”

I kept a 3 mountain hand, and drew a swamp. I played Olivia on turn 3.  Mazirek started with Boots, Kira started with a basalt monolith and a phyrexian colossus. On turn 5 I played a Bloodhall Priest and madness-ed a Strength of Lunacy on to Olivia.

Mazirek played a Saber Ants and a Mortician Beetle. I used a madness-ed murderous compulsion on Phyrexian Colossus.  Mazirek kept recurring Cultivate and also used a Jarad’s Orders to wind up with a Hornet Queen and a Phantom Nantuko (it was insect tribal). I kept myself alive.

The highlight play of awesomeness came when I cast a Muck Drubb to steal Mazirek’s cast Alpha Status and then was able to use Olivia to turn Muck Drubb into a vampire AND madness on a Senseless Rage onto Olivia, making a huge Vampire Muck Drubb.

Despite the awesomeness, Kira had out a Kozilek, The Great Distortion, and was also able to get a Cyclonic Rift and put Argentum Armor on Kozilek, and then crushed Mazirek for 18. He also destroyed one of my two sources of black mana via the armor, so I scooped (also he was casting Blightsteel Colossus on the next turn).

I had cast Behold from the Beyond, but nothing was going to save me with only 1 black mana.

About the deck (tappedout coming very soon)

This is mostly newer vampires and madness cards. Nothing super special, but it does have a bit of a “crazy” theme.

 

The rest of the night:

I played Gisa and Geralf again for Monst-tober.  I was able to survive (as zombies do) to beat Shu-Yun, Azusa, and someone else. I just barely eeked out the win to kill a super deadly Shu-Yun who was also playing with Jeskai Ascendancy.  Thus making Gisa and Geralf 2-0…
