Game #203: Geist of St. Traft
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Omnath, Locus of Mana; Prossh, Skyraider of Kher
Result: Mostly Fun Win
The second game in week THREE of the “Super October Frightfest of Cereal Box Monsters.”
I kept a 4 land hand, started with a Guildgate, a Secluded Steppe and a Mausoleum Wanderer on turn 2, and Geist of St. Traft on turn 3. Prossh started with a Viscera Seer, and Omnath found a Nykthos.
Prossh put the Zombie Curse on Omath. On turn 4 I attacked with Geist and cast a Spectral Reserves, turn 5 I cast Midnight Haunting and used a Zombie, some spirits, and mana to cast Obelisk of Urd. Omnath had an Oracle of Mul Daya and had been pumping out a bunch of big Hydras, but I was able to chip away at both opponents’ life totals in the air and killed Omnath on turn 7 and Prossh on Turn 8.
About the Deck (tappedout nearly complete)
This is just a simple spirit tribal deck, with emphasis on Innistrad type ghost spirits, though it does play a number of non-Innistrad creatures. I had considered making it a “Ghost Boy Detectives” deck, but fitting in Investigate made the deck less fun and cohesive.
The Rest of the Night.
Game 1 of Monst-tober was a 1v1 game of Olivia vs. Prossh that I just barely won (via general damage, the turn before I would have died)
Game 3 of Monst-tober was Gisa and Geralf 1v1 against a Sen Triplets deck (which I neutralized by just never having cards in hand), I kept hanging on despite the Triplets’ board advantage, and the Triplets player had to go home before we could finish, thus making Gisa and Geralf still Undefeated after 3 games!
I played Reveka Wizard Savant vs. Borborygmos and Uril. Borborygmus knocked Uril down to 1 life. Uril was a 1-shot 40+ Trample Damage nightmare. I topdecked Feedback, cast it on his Gratuitious Violence, and won on his upkeep.
The last match I played Numot Team ‘Murica and lost to Borborygmus.
