I started with 8 land fetchers....

Standard* Control

Demarge Score: 1


Round 1: went up against rbdw, won game one with a perfectly controlled board, lost game 2 and 3 from him having a fast start and me not getting double blue.

Round 2: played against american miracles. Almost won game 1 through mill even though my opponent had a tamiyo emblem (was 3 cards short). Game 2-3 Had all the answers while my opponent could barely get a board going.

Round 3: played against a bant control, he won (but had no cards left in his deck on game 2).

Round 4: played against jund zombies, lost game 1 to an explosive start. Won game 2 mostly due to him playing Brimstone Volley instead of flashbacking Bump in the Night instead of him winning I Redirected it back to him (we were both at 3 life). Game 3 I had complete control and even had time to use Deathrite Shaman to heal me to a good health before I started ticking him down. Found grove to be not as useful and doorcreaper vine might become Farseek.

Well the first FNM of this standard the comic book store I go to choose to do another sealed event (I made 3rd in that with a good tempo Rakdos deck) so this sunday was my first chance to really try it out.

Round 1 I went up against w/g midrange he built up his board quickly to go over my early land grabbers and fell right into my board wipes, Jace, Memory Adept did clean up.

Round 2 was against b/g zombies, without powerful lifegain effects it didn't matter if I stabilized I couldn't take advantage of that window of time.

Round 3 I went up against esper solar flare both games we fought well for control of the field, he won the battle for card advantage, but Jace ensured I had the advantage in remaining deck size and Sigarda, Host of Herons was there to protect him.

Round 4 I was against Jund Zombies and it was pretty much the same as round 2.

Overall i feel that I definately need more lifegain, Thragtusk would be optimal, but I may have to make due with possibly Rhox Faithmender, or Centaur Healer.

I actually haven't touched this since states and it's simply still up here mostly as a reference in case I want to try a better version out sometime.
