Mindmaster Ice Age/Coldsnap: Spidey vs Mooseman

Oh boy.

So the Artic didn't actually die as the Brawler was only 4/4, so it should have three age ctrs on it and you should have three lands in some combination of G and W tapped, right?

Untap, upkeep - add age ctr to Fallen, pay CU

Wait for you to confirm the above before continuing...

Cast some spell can't remember the name (don't have access at work) that costs 1W to give my creatures +1/+0 and another for every card in my GY that has the same name...….
I can't even access gatherer or magicessentials at work.
Artic 7/6 blocks your 6/7 serpent
Hulk 6/6 blocks Fallen 4/6
Valkyrie 5/5 blocks Wolf Token
Tap Valkyrie and target Artic

Your Arctic and my Serpent, Fallen, and Wolf die and you take 14 from the unblocked guys

You gain 6 life from the Arctic triggering and the Arctic comes back from the Valkyrie

LOL, you called my bluff. You actually have the upper hand - You didn't include all of the text on the Mouth of Ronom, but it can easily get rid of my Spider and you just fly over for the win. I was hoping you'd offer a draw but since you attacked, you'd figure out that I can't do anything. All I have in my hand is Scrying Sheets. You win, good game. I really thought I had that one, but your Valkyrie and getting rid of my Taskmage did it.

Onto the next!
 

Mooseman

Isengar Tussle
Ha ha ha ha.... that what happens when I don't look a little deeper.
I thought you had a way to save the spider and get the +1/+1 counter......
You could have won my alpha striking earlier in the game.
The Martyr of ashes was the turning point..... It took me a while to figure it out.
That was a very good game.
Onto the next......

When was the point for the alpha strike win? I don't think I could have gotten past anything....

If I had known you didn't know about the Mouth, I wouldn't have attacked last turn and saved the Fallen for another CU so it could take out someone :rolleyes: :D

I was surprised in post#47 that you didn't tap my Valkyre and attack with the rest that could. I had to make blocks and lose creatures.

Yeah, that was a puzzler. I probably should have at least attacked with the Serpent - looking at it, I think I was afraid of your Hulk and Arctic blocking it and killing it, for some reason. But I also had my Taskmage and didn't know you could kill it, so I think the plan was for every other turn to lock down the Valkyrie and probably the Hulk since it had pro snow so one or some of my guys could get though. Hard to remember now though :)
