Game #147: Iname, Death Aspect
Location: Family Game Store
Vs. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord; Gisa; Lazav Dimir Mastermind
Result: Neutral to Almost Fun Loss
I kept a 2 land hand, and got to 3 lands before I stalled for awhile. I played some cheap janky spirits early on (yeah Ghost Hounds!) and also a decent Nether Traitor. Jarad played an early Rune Scarred Demon and Gisa was saccing and recurring Kokusho (at least 3 times). Jarad tried for an Avenger of Zendikar, but Lazav countered it, and then used his pet Crypt Rats to kill of more creatures. I’m still not doing great in the land department.
I get to enough lands to cast Insidious Dreams, searching up Crypt of Agadeem, Necrologia, Witchbane Orb and Mortal Combat and stack it so I draw the crypt and then Necrologia. Jarad has both Thuderfoot Baloth and Demonic Overseer and is saccing dudes to eat our life totals. I have all of the pieces I need to win the game, but not enough mana to do it right away. I had to play the Witchbane orb first (relevant because of Gisa’s Nihil Spellbomb), and was 1 short of also casting both Mortal Combat and Iname as well. However, we were all low enough thanks to Jarad that Gisa just needed to recur Kokusho once more to kill us all.
The other two guys that were there this night ended up playing Two Headed Giant Tiny Leaders (each of them playing two TL decks) for awhile and then just burning out on Tiny Leaders.
About the Deck ( http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/01-01-15-spirit-death/ )
This is mostly a pretty standard Win By Mortal Combat OR By Big Crypt of Agadeem Mana Fueled Spell Thanks to Iname’s Ability deck. I play a lot of crappy spirits and a few non-spirits. The rest of the goal is to just load the graveyard and play off of that. Nothing special, but it was fun to play and cheap to build.
