Date: 2018-01-30
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Lazav; Etali; Trostani
Result:   Fun Loss

Due to Backlog, and temporal distance, these recaps will be brief.

Recap: From my notes, it looked like a lot of stuff happened. From my memory, I remember it was a fun game, with some crazy Fogs, and tons of tricks. Notes say I lost by 1 point due to a tapping mistake.

Game #223: Daghatar the Ancient

Game #223: Daghatar the Ancient
Date: 2017-01-24
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Kiki-Jiki; General Tazri
Result:   Unfun Loss

Daghatar the Adamant, Magic, Fate ReforgedvsGeneral Tazri, Magic, Prerelease CardsKiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Magic, Champions of Kamigawa

This one went pretty long, as the Allies deck took long turns to figure stuff out and had a Mana Echoes. Kiki-Jiki got a Koth emblem early, had two Valakuts, and got to Karn’s Ultimate range with an Ulamog.  There was an All is Dust that also wrecked the board.  I didn’t really get to do any thing exciting or fun in the game, just play catch up.  Cool things that were on the table for me included a turn 1 Rogue Elephant, a Tusk-Caller up to level 2, and Daghatar got cast twice.   Really though, I think this is a game where I would have scooped to speed things up, but I was still sticking with my “No Scooping Resolution,” which made me grumpy.

About the Deck

Elephants are amazing animals.  There isn’t a non-silver bordered Elephant Legend, so Daghatar gets to be the guy.  The rest of the deck is lots of elephants and loxodon, and a few +1/+1 counters things (but mostly just all of the elephants, or things that make elephants).

Game #220: Kraum/Reyhan

Game #220: Kraum/Reyhan
Date: 2017-01-10
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Omnath Locus of Rage; Kynaios and Tiro+
Result:   Neutral Loss

NOTE: due to a baby, I’m way behind in updates, so  I’m not going to write a full game write up initially. Also, due to me playing this game almost 4 months ago, I don’t remember the details from my notes as well

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus, Magic, Commander 2016/Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Magic, Commander 2016vsKynaios and Tiro of Meletis (Commander 2016), Magic, Oversize CardsOmnath, Locus of Rage, Magic, Prerelease Cards

  • Kynaios built up a big defense with Propaganda and some swords for offense
  • Omnath almost had a Parallel Lives, but Kynaios countered it
  • I had Reyhan with a Rancor and got to move counters, and Kraum did work too drawing cards
  • Corpse Harvester fetched a Thraximundar, but it was too late.
  • I huge horde of Angels did me for 46 (Luminarch Ascension for Kynaios).

About the Deck

This was a reconstruction, reconfiguring of my original 4-color tagteam zombie deck. Reyhan isn’t a zombie, but I rebuilt it around a Zombies and +1/+1 counter theme with stuff like Skullbriar and Grave Betrayal, etc.

Game #215: Depala, Pilot Exemplar

Game #215: Depala, Pilot Exemplar
Date: 2016-12-13
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Atraxa +; Tymna/Ludavic
Result:   Mostly Fun Loss

Depala, Pilot Exemplar, Magic, KaladeshvsAtraxa, Praetors' Voice, Magic, Commander 2016(Tymna the Weaver, Magic, Commander 2016/Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist, Magic, Commander 2016)

I kept a 3 land hand with no Red, but was able to play a Keyrune on turn 3 followed by a Barge and some Inventors Goggles (that I didn’t realize dont’ work well with most of my creatures).  I played Depala on turn 5, drove a boat and grabbed a dwarrf. Turn 6 I played a few more dwarves. Atraxa wiped the board with a Duneblast and played a Cathars Crusade and Scavenging Ooze. Then the next turn Blasphemos Act wiped the board again.

On turn 8 i played Depala again (for the second of 4 or 5 times), and a Glory of Warfare, and then Gisela on turn 9 and used to drive another car.  Ludevic/Tymna played Kazuul and Tauren Mauler but then there was a board wipe.  Turn 10 I played Depala and a Fanatic. Atraxa cast Languish, and tried to recast Atraxa (but it was countered). Tymna played a Psychosis Crawler. I recast Depala again, and the next turn dug through 9 cards, only getting 3, though the Duergar Hedge mage did kill off a Cathar’s Crusade and a Lightning Greaves. Then Atraxa cast Duneblast again.

Turn 13 I cast several vehicles, turn 14 a Nahiri’s Machinations and a Relentless Assault. I should’ve attacked Atraxa twice, but I split my attacks.  Then Atraxa killed me.

About the Deck (tapped out someday)

This deck is mostly about getting Vehicles or Dwarves into play.  It’s still undergoing some updates.
