2 Island
1 Black Lotus

Pretty mize play by me.  Lotus> Jace G1, Lotus>Clique G2 and he STILL pulls it out.  G3 was mistakes on both sides, but he's playing combo, so he loses.  GG's, duck, I'm sure you'll get a chance at revenge.

4 Force of Will
3 Mana Drain
2 Mental Misstep
2 Misdirection
2 Mindbreak Trap
1 Flusterstorm
1 Swords to Plowshares
1 Hurkyl's Recall

2 Enlightened Tutor
4 Standstill
3 Null Rod
1 Crucible of Worlds
1 Control Magic

3 Jace, the Mind Sculptor
2 Snapcaster Mage
1 Vendilion Clique
1 Ancestral Recall
1 Time Walk

4 Misty Rainforest
4 Mishra's Factory
3 Wasteland
3 Tundra
2 Polluted Delta
2 Island
1 Tropical Island
1 Underground Sea
1 Black Lotus
1 Mox Sapphire
1 Strip Mine
1 Library of Alexandria

SB: 3 Yixlid Jailer
SB: 2 Oath of Druids
SB: 2 Spell Snare
SB: 1 Enlightened Tutor
SB: 1 Energy Flux
SB: 1 Seal of Cleansing
SB: 1 Inkwell Leviathan
SB: 1 Planar Void
SB: 1 Nihil Spellbomb

Give me an ET to shoot for.

I have a 1:30 meeting I have to attend to, but it's possible I could break after that.

The Duck championship (of DOOM) championship match, featuring Ruboonia and Grand Inquisitor, is set for 5:30 ET tonight (January 3rd)! The match will be held on the intarwebs. Go on cockatrice and look for vintage--should be tough to miss our match. Be there or be square.

I beat Grand Inquisitor in two games. Thanks to everyone that came to watch!

I mulled to six in game one, but ripped a Library off the top before my first turn. He played a Standstill, which I broke early after getting Library active. He gets stuck on two lands for a while, so his full hand is useless. I dropped a Jace and bounced his control-magic'ed Dark Confidant before getting into Brainstorm-mode with him. Eventually, I resolve a Mystical for Tinker and he concedes a few turns later.

Game two he resolves Null Rod early and I do some flashbacked-Ancestral shenanigans to build a massive hand. I dropped a Bob in the mid-game and held off his Crucible/Factory creature engine with a Fire and a flashbacked Fire. Another not-so-rare combat phase victory for this deck. I was blind-flipping with Bob for about five turns, but my Blightsteel came to me during my draw step. BSC alone would not have killed me, but BSC + FOW would have.

Congrats to Ruboonia! 

As mentioned earlier, Prospero has volunteered to be this week's prize.

Y'all figure out when and what you want to play, let us know when, and have fun Smile

Oh, and I've approached Brassman about potentially playing the prize match for week 2.  We had disagreed on whether people would find it interesting to play historical metas/matches.  I thought it would be kind of cool to play the Gifts mirror against a guy who made a lot of his name with Gifts.  He wasn't sure people would be interested in that.

Thoughts?

For the prize match, shall we see how our decks from the tournament fare or should we play new decks?

I think the historical metagame thing could be fun in the future. I didn't play from 2004-2010, but I would be up for the added challenge. Smile

So I just remembered that I owed this match.  Ruboonia, I'm still open to our match.  I'm free most weeknights from 8-11, Eastern Standard Time.  Please let me know when you're available and we'll get this in.

I had to re-download Cockatrice.  I'm installing it now.  I'll set up a room soon.  The name of the room will be Prospero vs. Ruboonia.
