Game #223: Daghatar the Ancient
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Kiki-Jiki; General Tazri
Result: Unfun Loss
This one went pretty long, as the Allies deck took long turns to figure stuff out and had a Mana Echoes. Kiki-Jiki got a Koth emblem early, had two Valakuts, and got to Karn’s Ultimate range with an Ulamog. There was an All is Dust that also wrecked the board. I didn’t really get to do any thing exciting or fun in the game, just play catch up. Cool things that were on the table for me included a turn 1 Rogue Elephant, a Tusk-Caller up to level 2, and Daghatar got cast twice. Really though, I think this is a game where I would have scooped to speed things up, but I was still sticking with my “No Scooping Resolution,” which made me grumpy.
About the Deck
Elephants are amazing animals. There isn’t a non-silver bordered Elephant Legend, so Daghatar gets to be the guy. The rest of the deck is lots of elephants and loxodon, and a few +1/+1 counters things (but mostly just all of the elephants, or things that make elephants).
