Game #217: Ravos/Tymna
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Atraxa +; Vial Smasher/Silas Renn; Tymna/Ludevic
Result: Neutral Loss
(/ ) vs(/) (/)
I started with a Windbrisk Heights (hiding away an Enduring Renewal). I played Tymna on turn 3 and a Keening Apparition on turn 4. Atraxa started with a Hardened Scales and also cast Manifold Insigts. T/L played Blind Obedience. A Reforge the Soul shuffled up our hands. I played some small creatures (Herald of Anafenza, Tithe Drinker, etc) and an Elspeth, Sun’s Champion. I got my Enduring Renewal on turn 11 and cast Fleshbag Maruader several times, until Atraxa Mortified my Renewal. Vial Smasher smashed me pretty hard a few times, and then the board was wiped. I cast Ravos and rebuilt my board a bit, but a giant Atraxa cast an Overloaded Cyclonic Rift (a card I am definitely starting to HATE), and there wasn’t really much that could be done after that. I did some fun stuff in the game, but the ending was anticlimactic.
About the Deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/unnamed-black-white-partner/) (This link may change, as it is still being built)
Mostly the plan is to have a lot of small creatures, have Ravos pump them and bring them back for value, and attack a lot. Tymna helps draw more stuff. I’m glad to have a W/B deck that isn’t basically a Lifegain deck (even if Tymna does like some lifegain).
