  2. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Activate the Advocate to prevent the dmg, responses?

    (* There are no "rulings" on this card on Gatherer... but it doesn't state a card must by in the GY to activate it... but maybe I'm missing something. I see it as simply only having one effect instead of 2. *)
  3. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Well, it asks for a target card in the graveyard, so there has to be a legal target, i.e. card for you to use it, I believe...
  4. BigBlue Magic Jones

    I don't think I can pull this out, but I will try...

  9. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Whoops, we can back up to your turn if you want.

    No response to Ember Shot, nor the use of your Advocate if that's what you're doing during my turn :) Still done after my attack.
  10. BigBlue Magic Jones

    I will prevent with the Advocate - will you play yours again?
  11. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Oh yeah, forgot it was during my turn. Yeah, I'll tap WGB to play it again.
  12. BigBlue Magic Jones

    For the win... ? (or the loss)

    Untap, Upkeep

    Play Island
    Discard Filth to Inkshrouder
    Swampwalk w/ everything for 14.
  13. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Nice. Sac my Trainee to give the Warthog -2/-0.
  14. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Anything else?
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    So far no...
  16. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Damage on Stack?
    Damage resolves?

    I've nothing else during combat.

    After combat play Goretusk Firebeast - cip deals 4 to you.

    Game now? I don't have anything else useful so if you do, you win.

    Left in hand is Toxic Stench - useless w/ Bodyguard
    And Wormfang Beheamoth...
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yeah, you got me. Good game! I'm not sure whether I should have applied more pressure but...

    Rest of my hand:

    Morality Shift
    Canopy Claws
    Guided Strike - both would have been good IF there wasn't any landwalk...
    Lava Dart - was hoping you'd get down in cards so I could use it on your Ink guy
    Nantucko Tracer - get back a card with the Strike
    Wormfang Drake - supposed to be my hole card if you got rid of the Crab

    Onto Onslaught!
  18. BigBlue Magic Jones

    I was seriously considering concession once you played your advocate... your unblockable was impossible... I couldn't get to threshhold to use the toxic stench when you played your bodyguard... And once you stopped putting your own stuff in your graveyard my advocate was useless.

    I think you'd have got me if you pressed harder...
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yeah, you never know until the game is over. I was just content with a steady 3 dmg and keeping enough blockers out, but I couldn't really do anything about the landwalk.
  20. BigBlue Magic Jones

    At first I wasn't thinking w/ Filth... I was hung up on your ability to bounce it back w/ Advocate - and in a sort of blonde moment was forgetting I could simply discard him again... But also, I knew I had to get through for just about every point of damage or I couldn't do enough and would die...

    It was a very good, very close match.
