Dynavolt Demon

SNM (Saturday Night Magic) —March 4, 2018

Had a great day; went 4-0!

Round 1: vs. Blue-Green Pummeler (2-0)

An interesting take on the Electrostatic Pummeler decktype for sure, but enough handy removal and Aethertide Whales helped me get both games. Scary to play against!

Round 2: vs. Abzan Midrange (2-0)

My opponent couldn't get a fast enough start going in either game, and by the time he was playing threats, I was ready for them 100% of the time. Demon of Dark Schemes did particularly well in this match, snagging, among other things, a Ravenous Chupacabra during the second game.

Round 3: vs. Jeskai Control (2-1)

By far the most nail-biting match of the night, I lost game one to an Approach of the Second Sun, and my second and third-game Lost Legacys both whiffed when I tried to name it - clever opponent! However, once again Demon of Dark Schemes absolutely destroyed, stealing my opponent's Torrential Gearhulk in game two and effectively winning me the game right then and there. Game three, I found a copious amount of my sideboarded Negates (all four!) which allowed an Aethertide Whale to operate with impunity and take a very close third game. A very fun control mirror.

Round 4: vs. Mono-Red Aggro (2-0)

Unfortunately less eventful than my previous match. In the first game, my opponent couldn't competently curve and put down a string of 1/1s that couldn't chip away at my life total fast enough, leaving me plenty of time to stabilize and win. Once again, Dynavolt Tower felt right at home in a control deck. In game two, my anti-aggro sideboard worked perfectly against my opponent's aura-heavy hand.

All in all, a fun weekend! I'm especially happy that Demon of Dark Schemes had so many chances to steal games. I think next weekend I'll try out one of my other decks I have brewing up.
