Tibalt's Toys is a deck build around the idea of Burning Vengeance. I was not happy with the current lists I was finding on the internet so I developed this deck in response.
Unlike most lists, I am choosing not to splash a 3rd color. My reasoning to keep it 2 colors is a matter of not really needed to add it but it could be a meta call.
My deck moves away from the board sweepers only choosing to run 2 bonfires as sweepers in the main. Not all decks in the format are aggro and giestflame is actually surprising effective at getting you the tempo you need to get burning up and start picking apart whatever they have.
This list is currently a ongoing project and will keep being updated as play-testing results come in.
Here are some results from the FNM. I came 4th out of 21 people, I should of came 1st. I misplayed :(
2-0 Red/Greeen Werewolfs
I made him ragequit his deck. It did not go well for him.
2-0 White/Blue Spirit Tempo
0-2 Zombie pod
This is the game I misplayed. I drew a hand with only 2 mana in it. Never saw another land to fire my slagstorm.Game 2, same mistake. drew a hand with low mana, never saw another one. He god handed.
After the zombie pod game, we played casually. I won 2-0 without breaking much of a sweat. Seems like the deck needs one blue source and 2 red to fire correctly. I'm going to make changes.
Played in the advanced pool at the local FNM.
I won 3-0
Game one vs Green/White blink (midrange) 2-0, No real problems with this deck at all. I played aroundhis blink's and won off the phoenix and hellkites both games.
Game two vs Blue/Black zombie mill2-0. He saved me the trouble of milling myself. I controlled the boardand won without to much stress by stopping his alchemist from ever getting setup.
Game three vs White/Black Tokens1-0. Hard game, won with one life while he was on like 23. I had to make him run out of fuel and go into topdeck mode then sit on my counters while I hit him in the face with the pumped hellkite till he was in devils range.
Played this deck at my FNM and I had a "interesting" experience.
Game one vs Simon's Mono-black control deck that is also running green (it played better then it sounds). Went 0-1. He milled me with a sign in blood. He only had 2 cards left in his library. We never got to go to game two due to time in the round.
Game 2 vs Red-Blue Tempo.2-0, nothing here stressed me out to much. Won turn 6 both games.
Game 3 vs Israel's Green-white rampI won the 1st game and we came to time in the round game 2. Time went really fast, I'm not sure if the time in the round was shorten because the FNM had to end. I would of won game 2 in 3 turns if time wasn't called.
Overall results for this week. This FNM had about 20 people (maybe more, the place was packed). 3 rounds. Vagabonds Takapuna.
3 Wins / 1 Draw / 1 loss
