Game #216: Saskia the Unyielding
Location: Red Castle Games, Portland OR
Vs. Atraxa +; Reaper King
Result: Unfun Loss
I had a 3 land hand, but no green. On turn three I played a Taiga and some elves. Turn four I played an Oracle of Mul Daya and a Thunderscape Familiar. Atraxa was ramping like crazy into an early Elspeth, Knight-Errant, and then a Static Orb (I HATE that card). On turn 6 I’m able to play Saskia and attack Reaper King to also hit Elspeth and prevent her ultimate. However, it’s pretty hard to play through not getting to untap most things. I lose to a single hit with a 21/21+ Atraxa.
About the Deck (tapped out Soon)
This is an all-Creature deck. Mostly big stuff that hits hard, with a few smaller guys to help fix mana and do tricks. I thought a bit about having each color play a different role in the deck, but ultimately just went with cool creatures.
