Match Report 01/16/2018

Overall Record

Games 6 - 5

Matches 2 - 2

Match 1 - Win - Merfolk

The Modern non budget version of Merfolk. It was pretty scary most of the time. I needed to both gain life to stay alive and draw into Day of Judgment because the fish could get real big with all the lords. I took a hit for 45 damage in game 2 and eventually won with two sweepers. Both wins I was only a handful of life away from losing.

Match 2 - Win - Goblins

Woah... Another creature strat. But Goblins is a full on wide plan with less lords than Merfolk. This game was a bit easier without Aether Vial on the other to help them rebuild after my Wrath's.

Match 3 - Loss - Kiki

Introducing - The new Splinter Twin Combo that cost 5 mana instead or 4 - Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. Game 1 I lost to the combo. Game 2 I won with Nevermore on Kiki and a second copy on Pestermite. Then proceeded to beat down. Game 3 I lost on the last turn of extra turns to the combo. I could have tied the match. I was holding my Path to Exile to use on Kiki instead of the Deceiver Exarch or the Pestermite on the battlefield, and mistakenly used Declaration in Stone on the double Snapcaster Mages. If I had removed the two combo creatures already on the battlefield, he would not have had enough mana to both play Kiki and a untapper on the same turn and win.

TLDR - Remove Combo creatures as soon as possible.

Match 4 - Loss - Esper Ojutai

Lost to Kevin again with the Dragonlord Ojutai. I did win the first game when my Proclamation of Rebirth engine came online. But the 2 next games I just had nothing. Never drew a Martyr. I've lost a lot to this deck but I feel like I've never really had the good draws against it so I'm not discouraged. I proved I can win some games at least.


Huge Crowd this week with 16 people. All kinds of decks. It was awesome.

Very cool brew and commander.

Have you tested with Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter?

I wonder about Teferi, Temporal Archmage, as well, for its untap ability, and cards with similar effects like Aphetto Alchemist, Cerulean Wisps, and Deceiver Exarch or Pestermite.

Have fun brewing!

I understood that reference! BTW add Splinter Twin and Deceiver Exarch.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Splinter Twin + Pestermite or Deceiver Exarch or anything that untaps a creature on ETB

greatgoofini on Surrak, Kiki Twin Combo

Deceiver Exarch and Pestermite would greatly improve your chances of hitting your combo. I would also include Splinter Twin to turn anything into a kiki. Also Gamble would help out with tutoring

Update: went to my LGS and went 2-2 at their Legacy event...HUZZAH!

Match 1. 1-2 Mono-Black Reanimator ft. Griselbrand--Disrupted and outpaced game 1, couldn't find the graveyard hate after. Overall, didn't feel like an unbalanced matchup.

Match 2. 2-0 Mono-Blue Storm--Probably the worst matchup, but game 1 went similar to the first match, and in game 2 they wiffed after Time Spiraling (twice). Should have lost, BUT DIDN'T!

Match 3. 1-2 U/W Control ft. Helm of Obedience--Hadn't seen it before, so didn't know to Abrupt Decay the Rest in Peace. Promptly lost 2 turns later. Game 2 I was able to Jester's Cap the Helm, a one-of Gideon Jura, and a Celestial Colonnade...we went so long he milled himself ._. Game 3, after time of the round was called, he got the Helm combo on turn 5. Just didn't draw anything to help and make it to a draw, should've mulliganed.

Match 4. 2-0 Jeskai Chandras(?)--Game 1 had Cavern of Souls and was able to keep them off of Splinter Twin + Deceiver Exarch with hand disruption. Game 2 Deploy the Gatewatch happened, but their one creature was Decayed on endstep and I was able to swing in.

Had a good time, might just make a Legacy-board for next time.

Saheeli Rai should be a consideration in the Maybeboard, as she goes infinite with Felidar Guardian. There's a strong synergy with some of the other creatures, but I don't think any of the others go infinite.

Great Oak Guardian may also be a consideration, as it goes infinite in the same way as Deceiver Exarch, Pestermite, Breaching Hippocamp, etc.

enpc on $15 To Upgrade this Sedris ...

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Splinter Twin, Buried Alive, Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch. According to TCG pricing that should come to almost $15 on the nose.
