    I'll cast Ancestral Recall at the end of your turn. Responses?
  2. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Both Islands and a Plains to Cancel it.
  3. Melkor Active Member

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

    Tap everything for Absorb.
  5. Melkor Active 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

    whoops, I thought it was one of each. Never mind then :eek: No further responses.

    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 Active 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 Active 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!
