Result: Neutral Win?

My plan for this April Fools Day was to play this deck (that’s not all that foolish, just fun). I played the whole night with the same two guys (from the Exava game).  I had many lands in my opening hand, and a Cemetary Puca (which died to a Fleshbag Marauder). Daretti started building up some artifacts – mostly Myr, because that’s how he rolls, but my Master Thief stole a Pristine Talisman.

Grimgrin countered one of Daretti’s creatures and also (thankfully) destroyed a Steel Overseer. Silumgar came into play and stole a Diregraf Ghoul.  The game slogged along, (for 6 consecutive turns I attacked GrimGrin with his Ghoul, and Daretti with Silumgar, putting him in range for a commander damage kill).  I had also Taken Possession of Daretti’s Unwinding Clock, so I was gaining lots of life tapping the Talisman for mana.

I’m pretty sure I ended up winning this one, though I think we ran out of time.

 

About the Deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/sakasilazavumgarima-ac-copy/ is pretty close to what it is now)

This is the Silumgar version of SakaSiLazavumgarima.  It runs 25 blue cards that are all about Stealing stuff and 25  Black or Gold/Hybrid UB cards that are all about Stealing or copying stuff, and a package of 12 artifacts/spot removal (like the Monkey Maker and Curse of Swine).   The idea for the deck came from an old (circa 2002) Extended deck my friend and I made with a fully Transformative Sideboard (it started out as a combo deck, but you’d board’ 15 and make it a Counter Sliver deck, and you could board the combo back in in game three and play it AND counter silver).

The deck Originally was my Thada Adel deck, but I took out the merfolk to make a Tiny Leaders deck. I started rebuilding it as Sakashima, but partway through also got the bug to make a Lazav deck. They were fighting eachother for cards, so I thought “why not just make the decks share?”   When Silumgar was spoiled, I realized it had to be a Tripartite General deck.     Sakashima is the Blue Copy and Blue Steal packages, Lazav is Blue Copy and Black/Gold steal/copy pagage, Silumgar is Black/Gold and the Blue Steal package.

Vs. GrimGrin; Captain Sisay
Result: Fun Loss

My plan for this April Fools Day was to play this deck (that’s not all that foolish, just fun). I played the whole night with the same two guys (from the Exava game). I had okay lands at the beginning, but black was hard to come by at first (Tainted Isle wasn’t active), and then suddenly I had a ton of black cards in hand and the wrong mana.  Sisay did a lot of ramping.  I finally got Lazav out and Ostracized a Linvala from Sisay (because if you’re going to play Linvala in your deck, I’m dang sure going to make sure it’s me that gets to play it!).

GrimGrin cast a Fleshbag Marauder though and it got Sisay and Lazav. However, I had a Sepulchral Primordial in the grave yard and I reanimated it (of course getting back Linvala).  Sisay was messing about with Dromoka and Selvala (though I stole his Magewright Stone … or one of those un-tapper things). I soul ransomed Selvala.  GrimGrin played Geralf, but Linvala ruined his fun, so he found a way to kill Linvala, and then used Crypt Rats to kill stuff. He swung at me with big zombies, but I turned them to Frogs.

Then Sisay got Avacyn and a whole bunch more (though we did counter an Elesh Norn!).  Then we died.

Result: Fun Win

My plan for this April Fools Day was to play this deck (that’s not all that foolish, just fun). I played the whole night with the same two guys (from the Exava game). I had a decent starting hand with two lands and an Opal Palace.  Grimgrin started with a Grave Caller, and my first move was to copy Birds of Paradise from Karona using a Phantasmal Image.

Karona fetched one of the new Dragon pumping lands, and also played a Quicksilver Amulet. I used Acquire to get a Gilded Lotus and then cast Sakashima (as a Birds of Paradise!) and an Assault Suit.  Karona found a quite deadly Scourge of Valkas (that made me salivate with envy). I copied it with a Vesuvan Doppleganger, but mine got killed.  Karona cast Dragonstorm for 2, but Grimgrin countered one of the copies, and Karona ONLY got to get Dragon Broodmother.  I Cursed it to Swine-dom, but only killed the Scourge of Valkas (so that, next turn, I could Body Double it… I really wanted that Scourge of Valkas!).

I put Assault Suit on the Dragon so it could beat on people.   Then when my turn came around I Rite of Replicationed my Scourge. We did the math wrong, and thought I only had 30 damage to distribute, so I killed GrimGrin.  Karona cast a Hoardsmelter Dragon and ate the Gilded Lotus, but then on my turn we realized, wait.  I really had many more damages to distribute, and that he should’ve been dead a turn ago.

I was just pumped I got to Rite the Scourge, which was one of the plays I was hoping to some day make with this deck. Nice for it to happen in game 1.
