DTK Game Day Killing Spree

Because Thunderbreak Regent was at stake, I expected that Game Day was going to be tough with everybody aiming for a set (including me). LOL. So I tweaked my deck few hours before the tournament with a must-win mindset. As usual, I’ve got no sleep nor a decent meal coming from a graveyard shift. Hehe.

Here’s my new list (boyfriend didn’t approve some of my card choices especially the broken numbers but I prefer it this way and it has to be my way just because…)

I got my first Thunderbreak Regent from GMaster Games and I planned to get 3 more by attending late afternoon and next day  events. Original plan was:
Saturday: (1)GMaster Games and (2)XHC
Sunday: (3)GMaster Games and (4)Spiral Valenzuela

Matches Summary:
There was nothing remarkable about my matches except that my main Surge of Righteousness did a great job. Just as I thought, it won’t go to waste knowing that local meta is red and Abzan.

RD1: WIN
2-1 vs BW Warriors

RD2: WIN
2-0 vs Jeskai Aggro

RD3: LOSS
0-2 vs Monored Aggro

RD4: DRAW
ID vs Monored Aggro

Quarterfinals: LOSS
0-2 vs RG Dragons
This was my second time losing to RG Dragons. #Sweep
So if ever I’ll be changing decks, I might consider this one. Or maybe Atarka Red. 🙂

Lowering the curve was actually the best approach to deal with hyperaggressive decks. I didn’t feel the need for Wingmate Roc and Tasigur all throughout the games.

Did I manage to get a set of Thunderbreak Regent? NO. A lot of things were waiting at home and we couldn’t afford to stay late outside. Too many household chores, too many stressful things. Then we woke up late on Sunday giving us no chance to make it to the tournament. So much for my original plan. *sigh*

Overall, I was happy with my deck performance and DTK Game Day loots. Hoping to grind more in the next few days! Of course I have to make few more adjustments based on my tournament results, meta, and bf’s suggestions.
