  4. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    UUD, Equip Skinwing onto Leonin Relic-Warder, swing for 10. Well, that's lethal.

    Interesting. I think we both got off to a bit of a slow start for what these decks can average, and perhaps mine just wasn't quite as bad...
  5. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Good game!

    Well, for a Rot deck, I didn't get nearly as many artifact removal spells that I could have. Like more Corrupters. Although I may have misplayed and perhaps should have boosted my unblocked guys to deal more poison counters to you, rather than try to take out your guys.

    So I guess we switch now.
  6. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    The thought did occur to me, but it's too tough to say from just seeing that one game. You had to mulligan twice, and I think that if you'd gotten a strong starting hand, it might have stacked a few more poison counters onto me and made it so that even one unblocked attacker could be pumped by one of your spells for lethal Infect damage. It's also possible that even just one more Viridian Corrupter would have set me back enough that you could still win. That thing was a menace. I didn't want to use Journey to Nowhere on it because then if you ever took out the Journey, the Corrupter would hit another one of my artifacts and still be a threat.

    But I guess we'll see how it goes the second time around. I'll have to wait until this evening to sleeve up Rot From Within. Good luck!
  7. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yeah, I know. It's the only thing I can think of that I could have done differently though. With really no creatures or removal, I could just hope to out-race you which I didn't, because of all the Living Weapons you kept putting out.
