Dark Ascension Event Decks: Spidey (Spiraling Doom) vs Oversoul (Gleeful Flames)

Discussion in 'Games Run By CPA Members' started by Spiderman, Jun 8, 2017.

  1. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I've always disliked cards that require random selection from graveyards. Old cards care about graveyard order and WotC apparently decided that because they didn't make such cards anymore, it would be fine to make Haunted Fengraf and the like because in Standard and other environments without old cards, you could just shuffle up the cards from your graveyard and throw your graveyard back in whatever order. Oh well, anyway...

    Haven't really thought about the graveyard cards...

    I'll block with the Arsonist. Assuming no other effects, I'll have Arsonist's ability target you.

    There are no further effects. I will get a Forest with the Emissary's ability.

    That's 7

    So a little nervous and worried that you have a second Grenade and that's why you didn't block, so...

    Well, I'm dead. I didn't have a second Goblin Grenade or a goblin to use it with in the first place (Forge Devil isn't a goblin). If I'd had those, I'd have just cast them and killed you instead of playing the crappy Forge Devil. I did have Artillerize, but my next draw is Infiltration Lens and I can't cast both in the same turn with only four lands, so I'm dead.

    Good game. I almost had you, but the Doom Blades disrupted my plan. I should have played a bit differently in hindsight, but I also expected more gas out of my topdecks than what I got.
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    LOL. You kept playing the Arsonist so I just thought it was basically a Goblin deck, even though I looked up what Forge Devil did. Good game!

    I guess we switch now...
