BigBlue vs. Spidey (MTOA draft)

Discussion in 'Games Run By CPA Members' started by train, Feb 4, 2004.

  1. BigBlue Magic Jones

    None... I just figured you'd have phased him out so it was better to use him...

    Play Civic Guildmage, Done.

    Efreet phases in - Crypt Rats phase out, Untap, Draw, Attack with the Elemental, Efreet, and Shadow Rider, no combat effects unless you have some...

  3. train The Wildcard!!!...

    I really don't want to intrude here, but...

    I'd like to point out, as a judge still waiting on his certificate...

    That the phasing in for the efreet occurs during the "Phasing" step - but the phasing out that triggers does not go on the stack until the "at the beginning of upkeep" triggers are placed on the stack...

    since there are no "at the beginning of upkeep" triggers - the phasing trigger is the only thing on the stack during spidey's upkeep, and both players can respond... and then upkeep proceeds normally...

    502.15d Permanents phasing in don’t trigger any comes-into-play abilities, and effects that modify how a permanent comes into play are ignored. Abilities and effects that specifically mention phasing can modify or trigger on this event, however. Permanents phasing out trigger leaves-play abilities as usual. (Because no player receives priority during the untap step, any abilities triggering off of the phasing event won’t go onto the stack until the upkeep step begins.)

    just wanted to mention that...

    :) :cool:
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Ooo, good point. Well, I pass priority during my upkeep then with the phasing on the stack...
  5. BigBlue Magic Jones

    let the rat's phase without a struggle...

    Because I don't trust Blue anyways... (hmm To thine own self be true and that...) After you announce attackers, spend a G to sac the Caterpillar (bye bye) and get a 1/1 flier.

    Block the Flanker with the guildmage and the Efreet with the token. Any Responses?
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Nope, pass priority to you.
  7. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Play Guided Strike on the token - giving it First Strike and +1/+0.

    Barring any special effects from you that should kill the efreet and give me a card (it's a cantrip)...

    I take 2 from the Elemental. Also, I still have a plains untapped if it means anything...
  8. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Activate the Rats for one - then use the Ballista to shoot the Elemental for 2 more...

    Taking 1 (from the rats).

    Butterfly goes away, as do my rats. I really feel underpowered this game...

    Unfortunately, I needed the Butterfly at the time - or I'd feel in much better shape... The Caterpillar was my fattie. I don't mean to blame it completely on the draft, but the cards came up in your favor there - your first picks were far and away better than my choices - and I didn't notice that my Blue had all vanished until it was too late... I was very happy with my first set of cards - if I'd been able to keep them throughout I probably would have rolled - but this format is very dynamic - from match to match your cards change drastically.

    Regen my Dead, Done.

    Well, you kinda stopped my momentum, but we'll see...

    Stopping yours is only half of the problem...

    I need to get some of my own going - which sadly is not happening yet... And I know that all it will take is another flier to get you rolling again... Plus my walkers all have to contend with a 3/3 and a regenerator... :(
