Mirrodin Besieged Game Day

Part II, I guess. My boyfriend and I joined the Mirrodin Besieged Game Day at Eton Cyberpod.

I had a good start 3-0… then consecutive losses.

Round 1: WIN
Monoblack Vampire 2 – 1

Game 1: Kalastria Highborn, Viscera Seer and Bloodghast online. GG.
Game 2: Just my luck! He played first. Turn 1, Swamp, Duress. I revealed my hand – all lands and creatures. My turn, draw Quest for the Holy Relic. Play Plains, Quest.
Played Fauna Shaman on my turn. Fetched Devout Lightcaster through it, exiling Gatekeeper of Malakir which was his only creature.
Game 3: Almost same as Game 2. Duressed with all lands and creatures, then draw Quest for the Holy Relic on my turn. 😀 Got Fauna Shaman in play while he had Kalastria Highborn. I search for Devout Lightcaster to exile it! Boom.

Pure luck, Duress was not able to catch my Quest for the Holy Relic, plus it always go online!

Round 2: WIN
RUG Control: 2 – 0

Thanks to my Refraction Trap!

Round 3: WIN
Caw-Go: 2 – 1

Landy through Argentum Armor. 🙂

Round 4: LOSS
RUG Control: 0 – 2

The same guy who has beaten this same deck last FNM at Eton. We both knew how each deck works. 2nd-time losing against him. FTW JTMS!

Round 5: LOSS
RUG Control: 0 – 2

Again?
This one seems to be faster! 2 Lotus Cobra in play, hey landfall! Explore-d twice in one turn. Here comes Inferno Titan. And say hello to Precursor Golem!

Round 6: LOSS
Monowhite Quest: 0 – 2

My wrong choice of mulligan. IDK. Quest for the Holy Relic went online in right away. LOL. I concede. Same sh!t happens in game 2 even if he was one-land play. I should have known it. My deck used to be built that way. Oh, wait. No. Big thanks to his Signal Pest and Accorder Palladin. Upgraded!

P.S. Two Quests went online in game 2, I was able to destroy the first Argentum Armor with Divine Offering but the 2nd one will surely hit me all the way. Concede.

Round 7: DRAW
Caw-Go: 1 -1

This match balanced everything out. I believed my opponent was “neosphinx” (forum name). I’ve been seeing him earlier for we’re seated on the same table range most of the time. During round 6, we were seated next to each other and he couldn’t help but notice my pinkness. LOL. He asked for my favorite color, thinking that it was obviously pink. But no, it’s green. Even if I’m using pink deck box, sleeves, nail polish, dice and wearing pink shirt that day, it has nothing to do with my favorite color. 😀

It’s simply because I find the color pink nice, but definitely not my favorite.

And come to think of it, we’re 3 players wearing pink and using pink sleeves in the same lane, seating next to each other. As if we have a dance number after this game. 😀

Okay, here’s the funny part.

It was me against neosphinx. We both started na 3-0, wearing pink shirt, using pink sleeves. End result: DRAW.3-3-1. Break-even! Such a long game during the last round… We both had a good laugh, along with other players who watched the match. Whew.

MTG Loot Bag (and UW Control Deck Experience)

We went home with a big plastic bag full of MTG loots after the Gold Rush Trials tournament. Literally huge pack of magic stuff. Haha. My boyfriend’s friend requested us to buy 4 deck boxes for him and since we also bought four for us, they became bulky altogether. No big deal, they’re not heavy!

Pink hearty deck boxes are from Saizen while the pink sleeves are from Neutral Grounds. We are ready to dress up our decks! The latest ones are Elves and GW tokens!

MTG stuff shopped...

Ultra Pro Pink Sleeves_Neutral Grounds

Pink sleeves for deck consistency...

We’ve been using pink sleeves lately so we decided to use pink sleeves from now on. All of our decks are sharing the same color of sleeves. Hehe. But they have their own sleeves and deck boxes as well as tokens and sideboards. 🙂

By the way, my UW control deck did not work out well for me so after playing for three rounds, I just dropped.


Goblin Beatdown 1 – 2

My bad. Too many misplays. I’ve controlled the board on game 3 only to let a [card]Lightning Bolt[/card] resolve even if I have [card]Flashfreeze[/card] and [card]Negate[/card] on my hand. I was down to 3 and that’s what killed me. Haha. I pick up all of my cards from the table after realizing what I just did. *shrug* Good job for [card]Kor Firewalker[/card], though!

UBG Control 0 – 1
What do you expect from a control deck vs. control deck? Pretty boring. Such a lonnnnngggg game! I had a good start by delaying him through land destruction via[card]Tectonic Edge[/card]. [card]Sun Titan[/card] made it more favorable on my side when Tectonic Edge kept returning from my graveyard. Then there came [card]Doom Blade[/card] and that was the end of it. Same story against the Lightning Bolt. I forgot that I’m a control player and holding blue cards. My [card]Negate[/card] and [card]Mana Leak[/card] became useless because of my stupidity. But hey, it was tough and I like that match very much.

Valakut Ramp 1 – 2
It was fun! Third game was highly dependent on our TOP DECK. Whew. His 3 [card]Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle[/card] almost went online, thanks to his [card]Primeval Titan[/card] enchanted by my [card]Volition Reins[/card], I was able to search for Tectonic Edge and destroy 2 of his Valakuts. I had all the advantage until [card]Gaeas Revenge[/card] entered the battlefield! That was the end of me.

It was my FIRST TIME, and I learned a lot from this experience. Nice try! 🙂

I might use this deck again after tweaking it. Just bought the much needed 2 [card]Frost Titan[/card] and 1 [card]Gideon Jura[/card] so it should make a difference.
