Another game that was a long time ago.

I start with 2 lands, and play a Knight of Meadowgrain on turn 2 and a Gorgon’s Flail on turn 3.  Odric comes out on turn 5 and in this iteration is giving First Strike, Lifelink, Deathtouch, Trample, Vigilance, and Haste.  Meanwhile, Sydri started with an Island, Sol Ring and VoltaicKey on turn 1, then a Stuffy Doll set to Mizzix and a Throne of Empires.  Grand Arbiter threw down an early Propaganda (in Korean), but was Banefired out of existence.

Grand Aribiter played Venser, and a Sublime Archangel (which gets exiled).  Odric is killed by some spells.  Venser gets to Ultimate (because we couldn’t read Propaganda in Korean, and Grand Arbiter wasn’t going to call attention to the fact that one can fully attack planeswalkers without paying for Propaganda.  A cyclonic rift is attempted but countered.

I build up Odric again (Hexproof, Vigilence, Haste, First Strike, Trample, Skulk), but everything gets Terminus-ed away.  At this point there’s a Stormtide Leviathan, and Ghostly Prison on Arbiter’s Team. Mizzix is Past in Flames-ing for moderate value. Sydri has both Throne and Crown of Empires.  The game is getting pretty sloggy and Mizzix is able to kill everyone with X spells.  I had a chance when my team was going to have Flying and Double Strike, but my Skyhunter got killed.

About the Deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/french-vanihilism/  is my starting idea list, though isn’t complete)

The original plan for the deck was to play Odric and only French Vanilla creatures (creatures with only Keyword Abilities), and then only Equipment/Aura’s that granted Keywords.  I had to stray from that slightly, but the vast majority of the Creatures and attachables fit that definition.  There aren’t too many clever tricks in the deck, other than instant speed wraths just in case everyone is indestructible. I’ve since played it in another game and had even more fun with it.

Also, it play’s Marshal’s Anthem (for flavor, and also because it makes me think that it’s a song that Marshall Erikson would sing)

Game #195: Godo, Bandit Warlord

Game #195: Godo, Bandit Warlord (try 2, and try 3)
Date: 2016-04-05 (2016-03-22)
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Kemba, Kha Regent; Doran the Siege Tower  (Derevi, Radha, Mimeoplasm)
Result: Fun Win (Unfun early scoop)

Godo, Bandit Warlord, Magic, Champions of KamigawavsKemba, Kha Regent, Magic, Scars of MirrodinDoran, the Siege Tower, Magic, Lorwyn

After forgetting to record my first run-through of Godo, I tried again at a later date for an official game.  I bowed out of  the second game early (like turn 2) because a Mimeoplasm player played the artifact that forces mill for untapping immediately (and I’ve never had fun against early crippling mill like that).  Try 3 shaped up to be a game where people actually got to play instead of not being able to cast anything.

I kept a 2 land hand, but played a turn two Sword of the Animist and a turn 3 Tenza and was able to get a creature out to equip the Sword to.  Doran came out on turn 3 but was Path to Exiled. Kemba played several cheap equipment but then got Path to Exiled as well.  Ajani Mentor of Heroes came on board, and managed to Ultimate Doran up to 117 life.

I played Godo and found Trailblazer’s Boots and also had Swiftfoot Boots.  Godo got killed though.  Doran played a Mirari’s wake, but I think I copied a Qasali Pridemage somehow and killed the Wake.  At some point Ajani gets O-Ringed. Doran plays a Torpor Orb (I hate that!). Doran also has, somehow, an 8/9 Birds of Paradise.

I play Kumano, Master Yamabushi and give him Blinding Powder, Tenza and the Swiftfoot Boots, but Crux of Fate wipes the board.  I’m able to re-cast Godo and I get to Swing with Tenza, Swiftoot Boots, and clearly something else (it’s been awhile since this game was played) as I’m able to kill off Kemba (Doran having previously died, I believe) with the second attack.

Location: Red Castle Games, Portland, OR
vs.: Maybe
Result: Mystery

I know that I played a game with Godo in here somewhere, possibly after Mikaeus and Eesha, but I mistakenly did not record it (probably thinking that I had already played it, OR it was a 1v1 game to kill time).  I will replay the deck and give it a real write-up, though it will not be its true Maiden Voyage.

I do recall that I actually did get to cast Blade of Selves, though never got to equip it to Godo.
