Gatecrash Event Decks: Spidey (Rally and Rout) vs Oversoul (Thrive and Thrash)

Discussion in 'Games Run By CPA Members' started by Spiderman, Dec 28, 2017.

  1. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    RW to pump him again. Responses?
  2. Oversoul The Tentacled One

  3. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    RW to give him first strike. Responses? Responses after it resolves? Dmg?
  4. Oversoul The Tentacled One

  5. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I assume that's "No" to the first two and "Yes" to the last one.

    So your Geist dies from first strike and comes back via the Undying, do you choose to pair it again with Wolfir?
  6. Oversoul The Tentacled One

  16. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Yeah, I don't have enough blockers to stop all of those guys and pumping them with Sunhome Guildmage kills me no matter what. Good game.

    I see that for the last set to get two Event Decks, they went with "the good one" and "the bad one." On the upside, the rumors I heard about Rally and Rout being good seem substantiated. You might have been in trouble if I'd been playing a deck with actual answers to creatures, but it seems like the deck has a fair amount of flexibility. Truefire Paladin is every bit as respectable a creature as the old-school pump knights.

    So, what's next? Pair the Event Decks from subsequent sets against each other? Dragon's Maze vs. M14 and so forth...
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Good game! Yeah, I guess my guys finally "rallied"... if you had kept putting out creatures, not sure I would have been able to handle them or keep up.

    Yeah, I guess so. That sounds as good as anything else.
