Archenemy: Nicol Bolas (Oversoul) vs Gatewatch (Spidey, Melkor, rokapoke)

Discussion in 'Games Run By CPA Members' started by Spiderman, Jul 25, 2017.

  1. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Done. Also, not sure if it will end up mattering, but on my ongoing schemes, I'll be stacking the triggers so that you first receive an opportunity to sacrifice creatures to My Forces Are Innumerable and then, after that has or hasn't happened, you get your chance to tap creatures to Bow to My Command. Because that's worse for you and I am the villain.

    Nicol Bolas, God Emperor of Dune: 36
    Hand: 3
    Library: 40
    Command Zone: *Ongoing Scheme* Bow to My Command: Rokapoke's creatures cannot attack me or planeswalkers I control. At the beginning of my opponents' end step, they may tap any number of creatures with power 8 or greater. If they do, abandon this scheme.
    *Ongoing Scheme* My Forces Are Innumerable: At the beginning of my end step, create a 3/3 black Horror creature token. At the beginning of my opponents' end step, they may sacrifice two creatures. If they do, abandon this scheme.

    Hoo boy. Conferring....
  3. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Edited my previous post because I forgot to subtract life for combat damage, which seems kinda important. :oops:
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Sorry for the holdup, rokapoke hasn't communicated since last week so he must be busy. We're still conferring....
  5. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    At long last, the Gatewatch makes their move....

    Untap, upkeep, Draw

    Melkor casts a Windrider Eel

    Spidey plays a Mt and casts Obsidian Fireheart

    rokapoke casts a Flickerwisp targeting the Titan and casts Sparring Mummy targeting his Paladin to untap it.

    At end of turn, we'll stack the triggers in the order of the Titan first since we're the AP, then yours as Bow to Your Command and My Forces Are Unnumerable (as you said). So as My Forces are Unnumerable are first, we'll sac the Anointer and Scholar to get rid of it. Bow to Command stays. Titan ETB, rokapoke gets back the Responder.

    The Gatewatch chooses the face-down pile.
  9. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Island, Harvester of Souls, -2 loyalty on Other Me to rightfully steal back what Rokapoke kidnapped from me (Rokapoke's Sun Titan), attack Melkor with the Horror that is mandated to attack him, attack Rokapoke with the Horror that is mandated to attack him, and attack Spidey with Thragtusk, the Horror that is mandated to attack him, and another Horror too. Stuff?

    Fireheart blocks Thragtusk Mummy blocks the Horror that is able to attack anyone.
    Tap out to use the Fireheart to put a blaze counter on Crumbling Necropolis
  12. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Move to combat damage?
  13. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

  14. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Fireheart dies, Thragtusk dies, Mummy dies, Horror dies, Crumbling Necropolis gets a blaze counter, I get a 3/3 green Beast token, I draw 3 cards from Harvester (once I get home). You each take 3. Look right?
