Vs. Atraxa +; Omnath Locus of Rage; Kynaios and Tymna
Result:   Neutral Loss

NOTE: due to a baby, I’m way behind in updates, so  I’m not going to write a full game write up initially. Also, due to me playing this game almost 4 months ago, I don’t remember the details from my notes as well

  • I had an Ant Queen and Eldrazi Monument
  • I cast Ravos twice, but he only lived a turn each time, due to Board Wipes
  • Died before turn 10 to a huge army that included a 150/150 selfless squire that Kynaios gave trample somehow. Also Omnath vomited out like 30 elementals all at once with Scapeshift.
  • I didn’t make as many tokens as I planned to.
  • This was the very last game to fit into “The Book of Orzhov,” the purple moleskine that I keep my game write-ups in.  Time to get a new book!

About the Deck

Ravos is my favorite partner, and Tana makes 2/2s when he’s around. This deck is mostly about making tokens and swarming.

  • Kynaios built up a big defense with Propaganda and some swords for offense
  • Omnath almost had a Parallel Lives, but Kynaios countered it
  • I had Reyhan with a Rancor and got to move counters, and Kraum did work too drawing cards
  • Corpse Harvester fetched a Thraximundar, but it was too late.
  • I huge horde of Angels did me for 46 (Luminarch Ascension for Kynaios).

About the Deck

This was a reconstruction, reconfiguring of my original 4-color tagteam zombie deck. Reyhan isn’t a zombie, but I rebuilt it around a Zombies and +1/+1 counter theme with stuff like Skullbriar and Grave Betrayal, etc.

  • I had a total of 14 Clues
  • I had to leave before the game was over, but it was quite fun
  • Breya got an Elspeth Ultimate
  • Brago was having fun with equipment and Wurmcoil Engine and Strionic Resonator
  • Most people were at really big life.
  • Atraxa had a Mathar’s Crusade out at one point.

About the Deck (tapped out.  ha ha ha maybe someday)

Clues seemed like a fun game to play. Arcades Sabboth seems like he could be a draconic detective.  I can’t remember if I had plans to turn clues into creatures and buff them or what. I know drawing lots of cards was a goal, since I played a Psychosis crawler.

I came really close to having a chance at winning, but Kynaios had a kill spell. I didn’t manage to damage all of my opponents.  Cool stuff happened though!

Game #218: Eron the Relentless

Game #218: Eron the Relentless

Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Kynaio+; Exava, the Blood Witch; Dragonlord Ojutai; Omnath, Locus of Rage
Result:   Neutral Loss

The first game of 2017 started out as a 3 person game that added a 4th and a 5th appeared.

I had a lot of lands in hand, opened with a Ghitu Encampment, which swung until I cast Eron on turn 5.  Omnath Ramped, Kynaios did Kynaios things (the deck was still mostly stock, though it was the same guy who is also leveling-up his Atraxa deck), Ojutai hit the board early and played controll, and Exava hit early and was swinging hard.

Omnath had lots of stuff to generate card advantage and token advantage. Exava dropped an Underworld Cerberus and Kynaios played a Zedruu that donated an Oath of Druids to me.  On my 6th turn I oathed in a Seismic Elemental and attacked Ojutai with Eron the Relentless, and used a spell to kill off Omnath’s Oracle of Mul Daya.  Exava had out a No Mercy.  Both Ojutai and Kynaios were hiding be hind various Propaganda effects.   Ojutai started to get the upper hand, but then Omnath wen’t crazy (but slowly,  though we did stop it once, via Kynaios’s Blasphemous Act and me killing Omnath first to prevent damage triggers AND also regenerating Eron).  Omnath got back all lands from the graveyard, ended up with around 18 elemental tokens, pinged out Ojutai and smashed the rest of us (Thanks to Fires of Yavimaya), though it took him a long time to figure out that he had basicaly won.

Had I lived to turn 8, my plan was to Mob Rule away all the big creatures attack into No Mercy with Omnath and Elmentals (but not kill Exava) and use the damage triggers to knock other people down. I also had Jiwari Earth Aflame in hand and was looking forward to being able to Channel it to get around Ojutai’s Teferi).  Didn’t happen though

About the Deck (behind on TappedOut again…)

I needed a better Ultra-Mono Red deck (Skyfire Kirin, was a bit lame… though I kept that deck together too).  Eron is from Homelands, a set that I am in the Ultra-Minority for loving (Don’t think that Chandler and Joven aren’t also getting a deck and the word “Partner” sharpied right on them).   It’s mostly just cool red stuff, like Fire Servant, and no non-red-color-identity spells. The theme is: Attack, Burn, Repeat.  I wish the Homeland’s version was foil, but I settled for the Timeshifted foil. Also, he looks a bit like Jaco Pastorius to me.
