Game #65: Brion Stoutarm
Location: Family Game Store
vs.: Balthor; Sapling of Colfenor; Ruhan of the Fomori; Karona, the False God;
I started with 3 lands, personal sanctuary , Squee and a Sunforger, which seemed decent.
There was a mana doubler at some point. Ruhan played a Grand Melee and later a Powerstone Minefield for extra fun. Karona played a scrambleverse, and I ended up with 3 zombies and a Terastodon, but then a Living Death is played.
Karona has a, quite relevant, Ice Caves. I manage to level up a Figure of Destiny, but it dies to removal. Balthor has a huge Soulless One, while Sapling of Colfenor, via Vigor, has gotten quite large.
At one point I have Brion, Sunrise Sovereign and a Nim Deathmantle, but I don’t think I won this game. I don’t actually remember who won it, but it was a decent game.
About the Deck (TappedOut soon)
It’s pretty much about Brion flinging things, with a bit of Giant tribal. Most often, it’s Squee that gets tossed, which is sort of silly and inefficient. There’s some damage prevention and some damage doublers (as well as Avacyn and Gisela), and I like Pyrohemia.
