Let's do this online on DT.

We can change the number of cards from four if we think the format is too well explored already?  Or maybe that doesn't matter as everything dominant gets banned quickly anyway?

Funnily enough, the Lotus Chancellor Probe LabMan deck beats Me, Grover, Kieran and Levi play and draw, Simon and Tom on the play, losing on the draw. :S

Tom v Charlie (LL)

- Chancellor of the Forge ability puts a 1/1 goblin into play

- Cavern of Souls, Cursecatcher

- Pendelhaven, attack, pump (2)

- Attack for 1 (1), Merfolk of the Pearl Trident

- Attack, pump (4)

Then they race.  Despite Tom being able to chump block on the end Charlie is far enough ahead to win on 2 life.

The reverse fixture is the same but Charlie is further ahead.

Tom v Ross (WW)

Force of Will Talon Trooper exiling one of the Merfolk.  Beat him to death with the other Merfolk.

Tom final points: 7

Yeath that deck is pretty hard to beat!

I tried to make sure I had a deck that didn't just straight up lose to it, but that is pretty difficult, best I could do was draw split the games.

I guess I should do it properly:

Starting all games with Chancellor and Leyline obv.

Me vs Levi (DD)

- Cavern, Bogle

Levi has 3 options here.

- Force pitching Fog Bank (19), Skerry.

- Force pitching Stalker (19), Skerry.

- Skerry.

Option 1:

- Bogle attacks (18)

- Stalker

Draw.

Option 2:

- Bogle attacks (18)

- Fog Bank

Draw.

Option 3a:

- Bogle attacks (19)

- Fog Bank (Countered)

- Bogle attacks (18)

- Invisible Stalker.

Draw.

Option 3b:

- Bogle attacks (19)

- Invisible Stalker (Countered)

- Bogle attacks (18)

- Fog Bank

Draw.

--------------------

- Skerry

- Cavern, Bogle

All Fog Bank plays lead to draws, and Levi is down a life with either Stalker play so he can't race. Draw.

Louis vs Tom - Covered.

Louis vs Kieran (LL)

- Cavern, Bogle.

- Sand Silos.

- (19)

- Silos (1)

- (18)

- Silos (2)

- (17)

- Silos (3)

- (16)

- Silos (4)

- (15)

- Silos (5)

- (14)

- Griffin paying for Chancellor

- Pass.

- (16)

- (13)

- (12)

- (12)

..

I lose, and it happens faster on the draw.

Levi v Kieran (LL)

This one is somewhat hard to work out.  Ultimately Levi resolves Invisible Stalker but not Fog Bank one way or another.  Kieran then makes the Griffin a few turns later but wins the race due to 3 power versus 1 power.  If Levi keeps Force back for the first casting of the Griffin then Kieran can make sure he has nothing in play.  Kieran still wins the same race on the draw.  I think.

Me vs Charlie (LL)

He has a 2/3, I have a 1/1 :(

Me vs Simon (LL)

He has a 2/2, I have a 1/1 :(

Me vs Ross (WW)
I counter his Talon trooper and Bogle smashes face :).

I would've lost if the second island was a Mox, Lotus, City of Traitors etc. . . :/

Levi v Simon (LL)

- Saprazzan Skerry (tapped).

- Mishra's Factory

- Fog Bank, countered by Chancellor of the Annex's ability.

- Calciform pools, attack for 2.

Levi cannot win this race.  If he chooses to resolve Fog Bank and not Invisible Stalker through the Chancellor's ability, Simon can Dismember Fog Bank.  This is not altered by who is on the play.

Force of Will cannot counter Mishra's Factory.

Levi v Louis (DD)

- Saprazzan Skerry (tapped)

- Cavern of Souls, Bogle

- Fog Bank, countered by Chancellor's ability.

- Attack for 1 (1)

- Invisible Stalker can trade with Bogle.  Draw.

The reverse fixture is not any different.

Levi v Charlie (DD)

- Chancellor of the Forge ability resolves

- Saprazzan Skerry (tapped)

- Pendelhaven, attack for 2 (2).

- Invisible Stalker (countered by Chancellor of the Annex's ability).

- Attack for 2.

- Fog Bank.

Impasse.  Draw.  Resolving Invisible Stalker instead of Fog Bank is just worse as Levi loses the race.

The reverse fixture is the same.
