Date: 2016-11-29
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Atraxa +; Grenzo;  Silas/Vial Smasher
Result:   Neutral Loss

 

Jori En, Ruin Diver, Magic, Game Day PromosvsAtraxa, Praetors' Voice, Magic, Commander 2016

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Magic, Conspiracy: Take the Crown(Silas Renn, Seeker Adept, Magic, Commander 2016/Vial Smasher the Fierce, Magic, Commander 2016)

 

I had a 3 Island hand. I cast Brain in a Jar on turn 2 and Jori En on turn 3 (who was Act of Treasoned and punched me on turn 4). I had to Activate Brain in a Jar to play an Epic Experiment for 0 so I could cast Archaeomancer  to draw a card form Jori.  I also managed to briefly have a Melek, Izzet Paragon and a Cast Through Time, but neither did anything for me. I cast only one Instant or Sorcery all game.

The other people did some stuff. Atraxa had giant birds, Grenzo was goading all over the place, Silas/Vial-smasher had some planeswalkers. Atraxa was huge, hit me down to 2, and then wiped the board. I was dead by turn 8.

About the deck( http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/jori-deep-dive/ )

This is the Surge deck. Well, really it’s just several Instants/Sorceries matter cards that never made it into other decks, plus ways to cast at least two spells per turn (I suppose it makes Jori a Werewolf hunter too!).  It perhaps plays more creatures than it should. I really like the full-art foil of Jori.
