Game #162: Sakasilazavumgarima (Dragonlord Silumgar)
Location: The Family Game Store
Vs. GrimGrin; Daretti, Scrap Savant
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.
