I lose to Thom 2-0 because Curfew fucks me

I beat Charlie 2-0 because I have no 1-drops

I beat Ross 2-0 because my deck isn't fair

I beat Kieran 2-0 because I have Leyline

I beat Simon/Tom 2-0 because of Leyline

I draw with Louis 1-1 because he stole my technology!

I beat Levi 2-0 because my deck isn't fair

6-1-1 by my reckoning.

Simon I think you are right.  Thom v Levi comes down to taking the Mox, too, and for some reason that was hard for my brain to see.

For Thom results are ...


Thom 2 - 0 Phil
If Emrakul comes down he gets bounced with Curfew. Poison wins.

Thom 0 - 2 Charlie
This is really hard to work out but I'm pretty sure no amount of blocking from a 2/2 flier can keep Thom alive and no amount of aggro from him can get Charlie to more than about 6 poison? Would appreciate someone looking at this one.

Thom 0 - 0 Ross
Thom cannot activate and attack through Propaganda. Thom can block Talon Trooper and make it into an 0/1. Draw.

Thom 2 - 0 Kieran
Thom keeps Curfew up for when Phyrexian Tower is tapped to Unburial Rites Flayer and thus strands Flayer in hand allowing Inkmoth to poison Kieran out.

Thom 0 - 2 Louis
Misstep for Curfew means Emrakul is ggs even though Louis is on 2 life (on the draw).

Thom 1 - 1 Levi
Now this one is interesting. I think it turns out to be right for Levi to Thoughtseize t1 taking Mox Sapphire. If he Thoughtseizes himself Smiter gets Curfew-ed for the loss and taking Curfew allows Inkmoth to be a 2/2 instead of a 1/1 throughout.
After taking Mox Sapphire Levi makes a turn 6 smiter and kills on his turn 11. Meanwhile Inkmoth gets in for 1 poison on turns 2-10 putting Levi at 9 poison. Thom on the play takes it home handily with both Curfew and Inkmoth pumps available to him.

8 points for Thom.  Doing Charlie next ...

Thom v Levi

You can't Thoughtseize your own Smiter in to play, but Levi can make the Smiter on turn 4, so wins the race pretty swiftly.

On the draw the Curfew sets him back too far, although just a 2/2 Inkmoth wins also.

Thom v Charlie

An easy win for Charlie, Bitterblossom provides 2 power of flying blockers long before any poison damage is relevant.

Looks like a good round for Ross!

Ross 0 v 0 Thom - Propaganda stops any attacks / Poison stop Talon Trooper

Ross 0 v 2 Phil/Louis - Propaganda close to stopping Emrakul but not quite

Ross 2 v 0 Charlie - Stunning victory as Propaganda + Talon Trooper hold off all Grovers threats until he dies to Bitterblossom

Ross 0 v 0 Kieran - Propaganda will mean Flayer can never attack, but Kieran can always kill the Talon Trooper

Ross 0 v 2 Simon/Tom - Therapy takes Propaganda, Chronomaton wins race

Ross 0 v 2 Levi - Smiter races Trooper and Levi can pay for Propaganda if needed

1 - 2 - 5 for 5 points!

I make mine
Win vs. Tom/Simon, Thom, Levi

Lose vs. Ross, Louis, Phil

I think lose to Kieran, but I'm unsure? I make it:
On the play, I make blossom, he flayers me to the dome (16) I get a token. He attacks, I take 4 (11) I animate mutavault and bash, he towers to kill a token and block it then I lose the race.

On the draw its obviously worse.

If it werent for these meddling big stuff decks my plan of beat everyone/lose to talon trooper wouldve got there :(

Charlie 0 - 2 Ross
Charlie cannot make Bitterblossom because if he does Propaganda plus Ross' blocker means he dies to his own blossom.
If Charlie doesn't make Bitterblossom he can never attack and Talon Trooper kills him.

Charlie ? - ? Kieran
Another brainteaser. I'm pretty sure Charlie doesn't have a way to deal 20 before Flayer + Blossom kill him but there are a LOT of decisions about attacks and blocks and the sac of Flayer that I'm not certain of. Charlie definitely has to make Bitterblossom and take a minimum of 9 from Flayer shenanigans. Can he block and do enough damage before taking the other 11 from Bitterblossom?
Chumping with Mutavault initially?

Charlie 0 - 2 Louis
Emrakul doesn't care about Bitterblossom.

Charlie 2 - 0 Levi
Outrace the 4/4 with Bitterblossom force field (t2, 3, 4 tokens get to stay alive and do 3 damage per turn). On the draw Misstep the Thoughtseize and win on an even lower life total.

12 points for Charlie?

Now doing Kieran ...

Thought about Leyline but I forgot about Therapy (and overvalued Innocent Blood/Curfew I guess)

And Flayer of the Hatebound tech out of nowhere!

Philip Dickinson said:

Louis stealing my technology eh...

Here are the remaining matches:


Keiran 2 - 0 Louis
If Louis makes Emrakul, Flayer + Tower or Annihilator kill him. If he doesn't, Flayer beats down.

Kieran 1 - 1 Levi
Levi on the play takes Lion's Eye Diamond with Thoughtseize and wins. On the draw Flayer is big enough to trade and come back bigger and early enough to win the race.

Louis 2 - 0 Levi
Misstep Thoughtseize, win with Emrakul.

Flayer of the Hatebound was pretty cool but Leyline of Sanctity was card of the round I'm pretty sure.

At least we have finally banned Channel/Emrakul.

Phil 19
Louis 15
Tom 14
Simon 14
Charlie 12
Thom 8
Kieran 8
Levi 5
Ross 5

Pretty sure Charlie loses to Kieran 0-2.

Glad to have Emrakul/Channel/Leyline Sanctity all gone!

I really want Leyline of Anticipation and Chronomaton banned! Might have to play them myself next round...
