There’s nothing much of game highlights in this tournament but for the record, let me take note my matches.

Round 1: DRAW
vs GWB Vengevine: 1 – 1

Game 1: Opponent won.
Game 2: He was down to 6 while I was down to 10 when the last-5-turns was called out. He destroyed all of my creatures with Sunblast Angel coming into play. (I just attacked him with all of my creatures during my turn, they’re tapped).
Turn 3: I was holding Arid Mesa, draw phase and got Inferno Titan! Played it, dealing 3 damage to my opponent. He was down to 3!
Turn 4: He didn’t draw any removal. Just equipped Sword of Feast and Famine to Sunblast Angel.
Turn 5. Sweet victory. Inferno Titan attacked again, blocked by Sunblast Angel but still dealt 3 damage to him. 🙂

Round 2: WIN
vs Boros: 1 – 0

Game 1: He got no more landfall to pump Steppe Lynx… by mid-game, I’m already casting my big creatures and so I won.
Game 2:
I was down to four, he had Hawks, Steppe Lynx, Korr Firewalker and Sword of Body and Mind. In short, overwhelming number of creatures! He had me milled 10 cards from my library twice and there’s two Vengevine in my graveyard.
Thanks to Cunning Sparkmage with Basilisk Collar, I was able to shoot (dead) his creature (one at a time) and I gained life. Up 9. Then I drew Squadron Hawk, searched for the other 3, cast one more and returned two Vengevine into play.
I was also able to exile Sword of Body and Mind through Leonin Relic-Warder.
Then he played Spikeshot Elder, and pinged my tapped Cunning Sparkmage.
He double pinged Leonin next, setting his Sword free.
I had Manic Vandal in my hand and played it on my turn to destroy Sword of Body and Mind. 🙂
Finally, I had the time to equip Basilisk Collar to one of my Vengevines. With 2 swing on my consecutive turns, I gained 8. LP = 17.

Blame our long match to Basilisk Collar. 🙂 So, last-5-turns as usual.

Round 3: WIN
vs Caw Blade: 2 – 0

Game 1:

Squadron Hawk and Hero of Oxid Ridge for Jace TMS when he tapped out. GG.

Game 2:

Op: Island, Stoneforge to Sword of Feast and Famine
Me: Plains, Squadron Hawk, 3X discard Vengevine
Op: Island
Me: Razorverge Thicket, Squadron, Birds, Vengevine is back, attack. Taking 5
Op: Pass the turn
Me: Plains, Acidic Slime, opponent responded by playing Sword of Feast and Famine via Stoneforge Mystic, but I still destroyed his Celestial Colonnade.

The real hero!

Round 4: LOSS
vs Valakut : 0 – 2

*Thanks Rav!

Got 2 packs. Hero of Oxid Ridge and Glissa, The Traitor. Sweet, both are mythic!

2 – 1 – 1

Lots of Goodies from 3 New Phyrexia Prereleases

Pinkville’s (PINK and MAGIC Convergence Zone) update depends on MTGirl so I better rush my PR post here.

As you may know, my MTG addiction hits again! Right after Friday Night Magic (started at 8PM, finished by 12MN) at Titan Hobby Shop – Libis, I headed to Kapitolyo branch along with 3 other players for the midnight prerelease.

FNM Report: 2-1-1 (Naya Toolbox)

Round 1: DRAW
vs Monogreen Elves: 1 – 1

Thanks to [card]Linvala, Keeper of Silence[/card] for such a loooong game!

Round 2: WIN
vs RDW: 2 – 1

Searing Blaze zeroed my life in game 1. And his Jinxed Idol annoyed me that much.

Thanks to Phyrexian Revoker, Jinxed Idol is forever his! 😀 I’ve got a reserved Refraction Trap, just in case. Game 2 and 3 were mine.

Round 3: LOSS
vs Vampires: 0 – 2

Pressured here! Yeah, misplays. Destined to lose anyway, opponent had the upper hand when he won Game 1 and we’re on the last 5 turns of game 2.

Round 4: WIN
vs Tempered Steel: 2 – 0

[card]Hero of Oxid Ridge[/card] for the win! 🙂

Midnight PR time! I was able to pull out bombs from my card pool and manage to construct this deck:

[deck title=BW @ Titan Kapitolyo]
[Lands]
9 Plains
8 Swamp[/Lands]

[Creatures]
1 Abuna Acolyte
1 Fume Spitter
1 Contagious Nim
1 Geth, Lord of the Vault
1 Glint Hawk
1 Kembas Skyguard
1 Memnite
1 Myr Battlesphere
1 Puresteel Paladin
1 Sensor Splicer
1 Shriek Raptor
1 Sunblast Angel
1 Suture Priest
1 Toxic Nim
1 Wall of Tanglecord[/Creatures]

[Spells]
1 Batterskull
1 Dismember
1 Dispense Justice
1 Glint Hawk Idol
1 Grasp of Darkness
2 Grim Affliction
1 Soul Parry
[/Spells]

[/deck]

Sideboards that worked for me:

Mortis Dogs, Apostle’s Blessing, Sylvok Lifestaff, Myrsmith

Misplays:

– Land management… tapping all my swamps for Toxic Nim, giving me no extra black mana to regenerate it.

– Not maximizing Geth’s abilities. 🙁

Finished 1-3. We’re done by 6PM and I went home with two other magic players. I managed to get a 2-hour sleep and a relaxing shower before heading to Eton Cyberpod for the morning prerelease.

My boyfriend and I were both in Flight D. I immediately dropped after getting [card]Koth of the Hammer[/card] and [card]Phyrexian Obliterator[/card]. I forgot about the other rares. I think there’s Torpor Orb, too.

Then I joined again for the next pod, which happened to be in Flight D again. Same table number. Gaahhh. Nothing impressive on my card pool. I even got Venser’s Journal on the last pack, that’s the 10th one ‘coz we have 9 of them at home. Grrr.

Die roll, and then it was “pass 2 to the left”.

Here’s the deck that gave me a 4 – 0 standing.
[deck title=BG (Not Sooo Infect!)]
[Lands]
9 Forest
8 Swamp[/Lands]

[Creatures]2 Bellowing Tanglewurm
1 Blistergrub
1 Contagious Nim
1 Dross Hopper
1 Glistener Elf
1 Insatiable Souleater
1 Leaden Myr
1 Molder Beast
2 Mortis Dogs
1 Perilous Myr
1 Phyrexian Metamorph
1 Pith Driller
1 Spinebiter
1 Thundering Tanadon[/Creatures]

[Spells]1 Despise
1 Enslave
1 Grasp of Darkness
1 Grim Affliction
1 Leeching Bite
1 Mutagenic Growth
1 Sickleslicer
[/Spells]

[/deck]

SB that worked for me:
1 Flesh Allergy
1 Grindclock
1 Relic Putrescence
1 Gremlin Mine

Enslave for the win! Another remarkable round is when Phyrexian Metamorph copied opponent’s Tumble Magnet! I won after tapping his only creature.

I like my midnight PR deck better than this one but for some reason, my standing is not that good as the morning pod. It might be my sleepy head and tired body begging for a bed rest as the dawn approaches.

New Phyrexia Pre Release

My first PR shirt!

I’ll post our NPH cards next time. Have to do a lot of sorting out!

Ready for NPH’s Action!

I’ve joined 3 New Phyrexia pre-release events already but haven’t posted a blog entry for any of them yet. Why not? Such a sweet typhoon to end our day which almost soaked our cards! Good thing, my bag was water-proof and I had my umbrella with me. Still, my boyfriend and I went home wet and dripping all over!

New Phyrexia PR Ticket

Marked as claimed...

Hot shower before anything else!

Updates to follow…

Officially Inked!

I’ve got my first tattoo – Morningtide with M in the middle.

M for meaningful. Full of meaning!!!
M for Marvin, my boyfriend.
M for Morningtide, the expansion where I started to play magic.
M for Magic, the TCG I’m addicted with.
M for Mythic, I think, therefore I am!
And the list goes on!

I thought having a tattoo is like going through the needle’s eye. It’s not. It didn’t hurt. Well, it sting a bit during the detailing part but having a facial is much more painful.

Here’s what I’ve got on my upper right back:

My Magic Tattoo

My first magic-inspired tattoo!

Errr, fresh wound. Here’s how it looks after a day:

Healing me softly...

And here’s what my bf got:

We might have ambigram of our names next time! Having a tattoo is soooo cool!
