The Last Magic Rewards

Finally, I received mine. I wasΒ  a little bit disappointed since I didn’t feel I received a bonus… errr, extra cards. DOJ foil to be exact!

Last Magic Rewards

The Last Magic Rewards

I was expecting a lot more with their announcement:

“The December 2010 mailing will be the final MPR mailing and will include extra cards in addition to the cards you would have normally received. This mailing will encompass all reported tournament activity through November 15, 2010. We appreciate the dedication of our fans and look forward to providing new and exciting Magic play experiences.”

Anyway, I was given what’s due to me so I should be happy about it. It’s free, so even if there’s no extra cards, I should accept it whole-heartedly. Still thankful for theΒ  DOJ foil, plus textless Searing Blaze and Terminate!

Goodbye MPR!

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas from Booster Pack

It was my lucky day!

I got Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas from booster packs. Okay, we bought 7 booster packs with two mythic rares: [card]Sword of Feast and Famine[/card] and [card]Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas[/card] together with some notable rares such as Mirran Crusader and and Phyrexian Revoker. I can’t remember the others, though they are not totally crap rares.

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas from booster trip

My boyfriend and I joined FNM at Mike’s MTG shop in Asturias Street near UST. We both finished 1-2 after 3 rounds since there were only ten players. Top 3 got the February FNM card and packs, but because it was my lucky day, I also won one booster pack after the die roll a.k.a raffle draw. πŸ™‚

And there goes our booster trip… We now have 5 Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas!!! Got one now and we have an existing set:

Set of Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas

So happy!

FNM Results:

Valakut: 1 – 2

I hate how it ramps!

Monoblack Infect: 2 – 1

Thanks to my SB: Devout Lightcaster.
His Phyrexian Crusader gave me a headache, for not so long though.

Monogreen Elves: 1 – 2

Game 3 isn’t fair. Lol. My Stirring Wildwood was destroyed by Acidic Slime leaving me with a Forest and Tectonic Edge. Screwed!

My misplay: Maybe, I should have Journey to Nowhere-ed his Elvish Archdruid instead of Fauna Shaman. He should not have accelerated his mana to cast Acidic Slime…

My decklist is here, with modified sideboards.

P.S.

[card]Phyrexian Revoker[/card] is waaayyyy different from [card]Pithing Needle[/card]! I learned it after the tournament. Call it offline rulings. It’s so kind of him (the judge) to text me and apologized for his mistake during the FNM. I casted Phyrexian Revoker and named [card]Overgrown Battlement[/card] (there’s one in play… I was playing my GW Quest against Valakut) but was told that it won’t work because I’m trying to shutdown the mana abilities. Then my opponent casted another Overgrown Battlement ramping to Primeval Titan, fetching Valakuts and it was over in the next turn. πŸ™ I lost. It shouldn’t be that way if I’ve been smarter to know the difference between Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle. The judge made the wrong rulings, I should have made an appeal… But it’s okay. It’s just a simple game of cards, fun and exciting, the usual FNM with new faces of MTG players. It was our first time playing in that magic shop and I enjoyed it. It’s worth remembering… one, because of Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, and two, because of Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle.

Fat Pack… Booster Packs and More…

More expenses, that is!

Whew!

It was as if Valentine’s is not yet over and we are showering each other with MTG gifts. He gave me a bouquet of roses, so sweet of him. We also had a post-Valentine dinner date at S.R. Thai Cuisine. And now were spending more on magic cards!

MBS Fat Pack - Gift for Valentine

MBS Fat Pack

Could there be Tezzeret?

Tummy’s full. Pocket’s empty. πŸ™‚

We also bought 11 booster packs aside from this Mirrodin Besieged Fat Pack.
And there was no Tezzeret! Still, opening booster packs is fun and exciting.

Good cards:
[cardlist]2 Masacre Wurm
2 Red Suns Zenith
2 Bonehoard
1 Blightsteel Colossus
[/cardlist]

Too many rare cards to mention. Hehe. Can’t keep track of them all since we always buy lots of booster packs from time to time. Better update our binders first!

Pre-Valentine Treat: Splurging on Magic!

Saturday MTG shopping! Whew! It’s the perfect day to shop for cards since there’s an ongoing Standard tournament at Eton Cyberpod. First MBS legal tourney. I wish I joined! Got no new deck though…

We just contented ourselves looking for our needed cards. Here’s a list of what we’ve purchased:

List of Bought MTG Cards

Splurging on cards, how about our date?!

There were only 8 booster packs remaining in the MBS box @ Eagle’s Nest Cafe. As expected, we buy them all!

And the notable rares from those packs:
Inkmoth Nexus
Blightsteel Colossus

Can’t remember the rest.

Aside from those cards, we also treat ourselves to a relaxing full body massage and luxurious foot spa.

Love this day!

Friday MBS Draft with the SSC

I was not able to join FNM due to work-related issues. Grrrr. I just resigned and Monday is supposed to be my last day but for some reason, all of my office accounts were terminated in the late Friday afternoon. I called the IT department to sort things out, making me 15 minutes late for the FNM schedule. I just decided to go home and take a nap before our Mirrodin Besieged draft at Metrowalk.

Here comes the Sesame Street Conspirators with their drafted MBS decks.

Papet MBS Draft

Our first Mirrodin Besieged All-Puppets Draft

1 Mirran Crusader
2 Contested War Zone

It was my MBS box. Well, one of my pre-ordered boxes but we decided to use it for draft. πŸ™

We had 3 rounds, some players dropped because they don’t have the luxury of time to play until dawn. Haha. Finished 2-1 and I got Phyrexian Crusader and Hero of Bladehold from the prize packs!

It was fun! Lots of fun… once again, it was one happy puppets/MTG friends bonding and great MTG draft experience.

Lastly, I ended up buying Tezzeret. It was so frustrating not to have those good cards from my own box. Haha. Still trying to get over it. πŸ™‚
