MODERN LEAGUE RESULTS —June 1, 2015
These were pretty good games for me, I steadily got a board presence while keeping his side of the board clear. I made a huge blunder game 2, using Slaughter Games while he had a Leyline of Sanctity on the board, which I take full responsibility for. We restarted the game, and I beat him again.
The first game I had a nice board presence until he got his Ensnaring Bridge out, where he stalled my two Goyfs long enough to get an army out. Second game, I took a big risk, deciding to gain some life on Scavenging Ooze and hoping that he wouldn't draw into a discard spell while I snapped back Maelstrom Pulse to get his board presence, but he alas did draw into one, and that was that.
First game was really long, we basically exchanged removal spells with a clear board until we were well into top-deck mode, where he got the better draw, finishing up easily. Second game I played a T3 Fulminator Mage (on the draw), but I made the huge misplay not to sacrifice it immediately. He played a Kitchen Finks next turn, and that was that.
The first game was pretty interesting. I slowly dug an advantage with Snappy hitting away, but he was able to get both Ensnaring Bridge and Blood Moon out, meaning that it was basically just a top deck war, though I had a small advantage with two bolts in hand and a Snappy, and all my basics out. I finally drew Abrupt Decay , destroyed his Moon, and casted Cruel Ultimatum , which won me the game. The second game I opened with an excellent hand, and he was quickly driven to top-deck mode while I had a Seal of Primordium out to defend against Moons. I finished with a 5/6 Goyf swinging away. In his defense though, he had to mull to 5 both games.
The first game we exchanged hits until I was able to cast Cruel Ultimatum , discarding his hand and getting my goyf back, and that was game. The second game started out well, with me being able to Slaughter Games both his Cryptic Command and his Eternal Witness . But he got a decent boardstate out with a pair Kitchen Finks , and finished with Thrun, the Last Troll . Game three was pretty similar, he got an excellent hand and mine was simply too slow. Once again, Thrun finished the game.
First game he comboed off pretty quickly. Second game was quite close. A well-times boardwipe knocked out two goyfs and two birds for him. I disabled his Splinter Twin with Pithing Needle . I even got rid of his 4 goyfs. But he hit a series of fabulous draws and was able to get a bigger board on the battlefield, which I could not deal with.
It would be even cooler to see you play Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker too, for added Ultimatums! :D +1 for sure!
