Result: Unsatisfying Loss

Skyfire KirinvsBalthor the Defiled

 

I showed up a bit late, but only one other person was there (Balthor), so we decided to play a few games while we waited (and it turned out to be just us).

I draw a bunch of lands and play Skyfire on turn 4. It gets Skin Render-ed. I play Skyfire again. A Memory Jar kind of wrecks my hand (don’t remember what I lost, but it was all good stuff). I jump through a bunch of hoops and cast a number of spells to temporarily borrow  Lord of the Undead and Gravecrawler.  Then I die miserably.

Not a great Maiden Voyage for the Skyfire

About the Deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/fire-in-the-sky-1/  partial list)

For reasons I don’t understand, I decided I needed to have an Ultra-Mono (no artifacts or non-Color Identity* cards) Red deck that was also Spirit Tribal (it was almost also Kamigawa Block Constructed….).  Also Skyfire Kirin looks rad in Foil, and red has some fun Arcane/Splice cards.  Sadly, Skyfire doesn’t give haste, and there aren’t that many great Red sac-outlets. It might need Goblin Bombardment.
