Thank you, Nick, for hosting an awesome tournament instead of having a life. =)

Yea me too. I am sick as hell and played like crap, thank God that Oath is such awesome sauce. Probably the only match I played well was the mirror against Brad. I liked the deck but the dredge hate was wrong. Will fix next time


Yea, I started making some bad plays against Steve, and they just kept compounding into our match too. 

In game 2 I didn't tap the 2nd Orchard when Time Walking, which was just awful. 

In game 3, my opener was orchard, fetch, dual, 2 on-color moxen, gifts, force.  It wasn't that impressive but it had a stable mana base and some action, plus I was on the draw to hopefully see some good things.  When you ran the Ancestral out I had the choice between hardcasting Force or Gifts, and Gifts was definitely the wrong choice.  I should have went with the Force, let you Drain it, then go for Gifts while you were tapped down to try and maintain pace.  But with Gifts gone I just had nothing going for me. 

You definitely played it much better than I did.

Spell pierce comes to mind... haha I am just kidding. I made that misplay with gifts but I don't think adding Vamp gets anywhere either as you said you would just give me lotus/twister and I would have to get lucky. If you happen to think of any piles that would had been good that game let me know.

Congrats on another top 8.
Pleasure playing you twice today, sorry I was a bit frustrated when you beat me.

On a different note, Props:
Thanks Coss for hosting another event.
Good job Elias! Monster, this guy
Beaver is always a good time
Cheese and Bread was the best 5 dollars i've ever spent

Edit: Slops:
Nick Detwiler for coming out, then not playing... I think Nick might need a cat name

Sam, how close was your deck to my Philly open version? Recall was nuts, I may play it next time...

I posted a report, but it's a 4 Card difference in the maindeck; -4 Leyline and +1 Dread Return, Dread Return Target, Nature's Claim, Recall.

That makes sense.  Dredge has calmed down some, making MD Leyline much less necessary.

I won't argue that it can't help and that it can't be good, because it's highly situational, but it generally gets sided out and it isn't even aggressively mulliganed into for the mirror match.
