    I'll cast Ancestral Recall at the end of your turn. Responses?

    Both Islands and a Plains to Cancel it.
  3. Melkor Well-Known Member

    Misdirection, removing Gush from the game
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Tap everything for Absorb.
  5. Melkor Well-Known Member

    Don't you need two blue mana for Absorb? I only count one after the Cancel
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    You know, for some reason, I thought it was the Servant and another artifact, not the Grindstone, that was the combo. Ah, well, good game. That was rather anticlimatic from our second game :) I'll update the thread if it hasn't been already.
  17. Melkor Well-Known Member

    Simple combos often seem to be.
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I should have tapped for more mana when I cast Upheaval and not put down the land, although I was fearing a ctr at the time. Then I could have replayed Mana Vault on that turn and be ahead of you for land so hopefully I could counter the Servant when he came out...
  19. Melkor Well-Known Member

    I was confident after you had played a land before the Upheaval, I knew I would be one step ahead. So play or draw?

    Oh yeah! I had forgotten that Spidey had won game 1!
