Game#52: Momir Vig, SIMIC GUILD
Location: Family Game Store
vs: Savra (GUILD)
Result: Fun Win
Crazy Mess-with-the-living Guild vs. Crazy Mess-with-the-dead guild. I start with a 5 land hand and a Vigean Hydropon. Savra has a Dark Confidant and Birds of Paradise. I get a Master Biomancer and Savra gets Jarad. I play Momir Vig, but it’s Seal of Doomed. I try Vig again, but it’s Sealed again thanks to a Recollect, so I play Vorel instead. Jarad is back too, doing tricks with his Sister to make me sacrifice things. Then there’s a Corpsejack Menace. I comment that it would be really nice if I could play black mana, then I recast Vig followed by Coiling Oracle and search up Progenitor Mimic… to copy the Corpsejack Menace. I some how am able to keep ahead of Savra’s sac-forcing and hang on to the Corpsejack Mimi, and then get out a huge Fathom Mage and a big Fluxmage. I get up to 5 Corpsejac Menace tokens, and play an 80/80 Nimbus Swimmer and use that to fly in for more victory than is necessary. Corpsejack menace is a great Simic card.
About the Deck
Another of the 10 guild decks. I used Momir Vig because he lets me get all of the other cool creatures. Also, everyone and their mother/brother/cousin/dog has a Prime Speaker Zeganna Deck these days, so I’ve vowed not to use PSZ as a general.
