Game #102: Prossh, Skyraider of Kher
Location: Family Game Store
Vs: Balthor; Sigarda, Host of Herons
I missed playing last week due to a bet regarding the weather. This week there ended up being only 3 of us, so we got quite a few games in. Also, Balthor’s player, who likes giving me things just-because decided he didn’t need his complete run of James Robinson’s “Starman” (my very favorite Superhero Comic of all time) and let me have them. Also, he announced that he had a Foil German Balthor in the mail, which was a bummer because I was trying to track one down for him as a surprise. On to the games…
I got pretty land-screwed to start out this game, though I did play a Crimson Kobolds turn 1. I had to discard twice while at 2 lands, because everything in my hand cost 3. I did manage to Rancor up my Kobold, but a damnation ended that fun. Balthor had a Lord of the Undead and an Undead Warchief at the time, and Sigarda had a StoneForge Mystic, Khemba and two Swords.
I finally got up to 4 lands and I had a Kodama’s Reach. I got Bubbling Cauldron and Bogbrew Witch online, but by this time Sigarda had protection from everything and had Infect, so Balthor died.
If I had any way to give Prossh Haste I could have won, but I didn’t so, instead I summoned a Festering Newt from my library and died.
About the deck (tapped out Someday)
Prossh was my favorite of the Pre-con generals, so I decided to build him his own deck. Of course it had to be Kobold Themed, and Rohgahh of Kher Keep had to be in the 99 (with a Time of Need to find him). Also, Dragon Appeasement is my favorite non-legend from Alara block, so this deck is also built around that card. Lots of sacrifice outlets.
