. As I noted last week, it never seemed to do much for me, so it seemed the ideal choice to replace with one of my newer cards. On to the games:

Game one of the first match was pretty straight forward as I was just able to put out threats faster than my opponent could finds ways to deal with them. Game two followed pretty much the same story.

Record so far: 4-2


Match two didn’t go so well for me. Game one I had what I thought was a pretty good hand, I was able to suspend a Baloth on turns one and two and then a Corpulent Corpse

Game one of match three was decided more by my opponent’s mana screw than any spectacular play skill on my part. Game two, however, was lost due to my bad play. We had been trading damage pretty evenly and were both down four life on my opponent’s turn and he attacked with a Subterranean Shambler

Instead he let it through for one damage added to the one from the Avenger. What I failed to consider was the fact that my opponent, playing red, might have had some direct damage in hand to let him seal the deal. One Orcish Cannonade

for eight goblin tokens. My opponent immediately conceded. Game two was less fun as my opponent was mana flooded and wasn’t able to put up much of a fight. Whatever sympathy I might have had for him was negated by his incessant whining about his situation. Look, I know that mana flood/screw sucks, and I don’t mind a complaint or two when it happens, that’s understandable. But is it really necessary to comment on every single draw that fails to help? I don’t know, maybe I’m just too cranky about this, but it does tend to get on my nerves. Anyway, needless to say, I won the game.

Record so far: 6-3


Match five was simple and straightforward as in both games I was able to steam-roll my opponent before he could mount much of a defense.

Record so far: 7-3


So far so good. My deck seems to be pretty good at setting up a dominant board position pretty quickly. I got a little lucky this week in not facing anyone with tremendous amounts of removal. There’s nothing in the deck right now that I’m sorry to have, which makes me wonder what I’ll decide to do with the new cards I open next week. It may be time to cut a color, the big question will be: “Which color?” That will largely depend on what I open, I think.
