. I was able to use the Arrows to nerf my opponent’s creatures and get my own past for the eventual win. Game two went much the same as I was again able to overwhelm my opponent with creatures.

Record so far: 12-4


The tables were turned game one of match two as my opponent was able to churn out the creatures faster than I and overwhelm me fairly quickly. Game two was lost because, well, I suck. My opponent had a suspended Errant Ephemeron

I activated the Crier too soon, before my opponent’s flier was in play. This mistake pretty much cost me the game as I was forced to use up more removal to deal with the Ephemeron

, removal which was then unavailable to deal with my opponent’s later creatures.

Record so far: 12-5


Match three went much better for me. Game one I simply out produced my opponent on the creature front and ran over him. Game two was less fun as my win was due in large part to my opponent’s mana-screw.

Record so far: 13-5


Game one of match four started out well for me. I had a nice, aggressive start and, as I was beating down my opponent with my creatures, victory was in sight. And then my opponent dropped a Stronghold Overseer

. My opponent was able to hold out just long enough to get a couple of good swings in with the Overseer and that was enough to finish me. Game two wasn’t even that close as my opponent established an early creature advantage and ran me over.

Record so far: 13-6

early. I tried to race the Kraken, hoping I could pile on enough damage early enough to make the Kraken irrelevant. It was not to be, however. Once the Kraken hit the board it was able to end the game pretty quickly. Game two went much better as I got out to an aggressive start and, despite my opponent once again suspending his Kraken, I was able to overwhelm him before he could put up much of a fight. Game three went much the same, this time it was all about the Giants on my side of the board. It started with my Cyclopean Giant

End of league record: 14-6


I ended the league in 29th place. I might have placed higher had I had time to play more tiebreakers, but I didn’t so I’ll have to be satisfied with the finish I did earn. I made a good showing of it this league, even if misplays did cost me a few games.
